Unwrap and inspect the unit on a flat, level surface capable of
supporting it’s entire weight. If necessary remove protective film
from Stainless Steel models.
• Keep your Stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a good
quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/polish on a monthly
basis. For best results use Claire Stainless Steel Polish and
Cleaner, which can be purchased from U-Line Corporation
(Part numbers 173348). Frequent cleaning will remove surface
contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations may
require cleaning on a weekly basis.
• Do not clean with steel wool or abrasive pads.
• Do not use cleaners that are not specifically intended
for stainless steel on stainless surfaces (this includes
glass, tile and counter cleaners).
• If any surface discolors or rust appears, clean it quickly with
Bon-Ami or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive
cloth. Always clean in the direction of the grain. Always finish
this process with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or
comparable product to prevent further problems.
WARNING
Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate into the
surface of the stainless steel and complete removal of
the rust may not be possible.

Drain Connection:
WARNING
CAUTION
If your U-Line unit did not come with a factory installed
drain pump you must use a gravity style drain connection.
For assistance in determining if your unit has a pump
please contact U-Line. The floor drain must be large
enough to accommodate drainage from all attached
drains. Follow these guidelines when installing drain lines
to prevent water from flowing back into the ice maker
storage bin and/or potentially flowing onto the floor, which
may result in personal injury or property damage.
IMPORTANT
Drain can NOT be located directly below the unit. Unit
has a solid base that will not allow the unit to drain below
itself.
Failure to connect water supply or drain line
connections properly can result in personal injury and
property damage. Gravity drain connections must be
routed downward from the rest of the unit at the rate
of 1/4” per foot.
Factory Installed Drain Pump
• If your drain line will run up to a stand pipe, disposal or spigot
assembly, or does not otherwise meet the requirements for a
gravity drain, you may have ordered the CLR2160 or
CLRCO2175 with a pre-installed U-Line P60 drain pump.
• If you need to install a P60 drain pump into your unit, see
Locally Installed Drain Pump on pg 17.
• See below for typical installations requiring a drain pump.

Final Installation
IMPORTANT
The maximum lift for the P60 drain pump is 10 feet. This
must be done as close to the rear of the unit as possible.
IMPORTANT
Before installing your U-Line CLR2160 or CLRCO2175
with factory-installed U-Line P60 pump, it is extremely
important to check and test all hose connections at the
drain pump.
IMPORTANT
There is a possibility that hose connections may have
loosened during shipment.
IMPORTANT
In the event of a power outage, restricted drain or pump
failure, the failure to use the U-Line P60 drain pump could
result in substantial water leakage and pooling with severe
and costly water damage and related consequential
damages and harm.
1. Plug in unit and put into OFF mode by holding the power key
for 10 seconds.
2. Turn on the water supply and ensure the connections are free of
leaks.
Test Hose Connections:
3. Pour 1 gallon of water into the bin and ensure all the
connections and fittings are free from leaks.
1. Place a suitable container beneath the pump’s discharge tube.
The container must be able to hold a minimum of one gallon.
4. Begin to push the appliance into the desired cabinet opening.
The copper tubing should remain in 2 coils behind the unit.
2. Plug the ice maker power cord into a properly grounded,
polarized electrical outlet.
3. Place the unit into OFF mode by holding the power key for 10
seconds. Failure to power down the ice maker will cause it to
begin a fill cycle which will run for 3 minutes.
4. Verify pump operation by pouring one gallon of water into the
ice storage bin of the ice maker. The pump should energize and
pump the water into the container.
5. At this time, verify that all tube and clamp connections are tight
and leak-free.
6. Unplug unit power cord from electrical outlet.
Drain Connection:
IMPORTANT
Normal operation creates some vibration. A water supply
line contacting the cabinet may cause excessive noise
during operation, or damage the line. Make certain the
water line is not in contact with the cabinet.
5. While pushing the unit into the opening, continuously reroute
the drain tube and water line to avoid kinks. The most common
installation pulls the slack into an adjacent cabinet or basement
area.
6. When installation is complete and unit is secured in the opening
pour 1 gallon of water into the unit and ensure the water drains
from the bin and there is no water leakage in and around
product.
IMPORTANT
WARNING
To prevent accidental electrocution and / or slipping
make certain the floor surfaces surrounding the unit
are dry at all times.
1. Route pre-installed drain tube and cut to length. Connect to
local plumbing per code. Common fittings and clamps have
been included for your convenience, Avoid dips or sags in the
drain line and ensure the maximum lift is under 10’.
2. Insulate the drain line, if necessary to prevent condensation.’.
3. Test the drain system per the test procedure under “Final
Installation” on page 17.
Failure to properly perform the installation of water
supply and drainage connections may result in water
leakage, which can damage the unit, damage other
property and result in personal injury through
electrocution and/or slips and falls. As a result, failure to
properly install and connect the water supply and
drainage connections shall serve to void U-Lines warranty
on the supplied equipment. In no event shall U-Line be
responsible for direct, indirect, incidental, consequential
or any other damage arising from improper water supply
and drain installation and/or connections.
Locally Installed Drain Pump:
If a gravity drain connection is not possible, and you have not
purchased a CLR2160 or CLRCO2175 without a factory installed
pump, we strongly recommend the use of the U-Line P60 drain
pump.
The U-Line P60 drain pump is available through your dealer., with
complete installation instructions.

3. Check the levelness after each adjustment and repeat the
previous steps until the unit is level.
• Open door fully, grasp shelf firmly, lift front edge slightly, and
pull straight out.
• Choose new location and slide shelf onto the appropriate rib.
INSTALLATION TIP
Glass Shelves on Left-Hand Hinge Units
If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cut-out opening,
adjust the rear feet to achieve a total unit rear height of 1/8" less
than the opening’s rear height. Shorten the unit height in the front
by adjusting the front feet. This allows the unit to be gently tipped
into the opening. Readjust the front feet to level the unit after it is
correctly positioned in the opening.
• Pull shelf out about 6” to clear the wall’s molded protrusion.
• Tilt right-hand edge of shelf up.
• Keeping at this angle and hugging the right wall, pull the shelf
out.
• Choose new location and insert over ribs, tilting right-hand
edge up. Push in, then lower shelf onto ribs.
Door Shelves
• First pull shelf up at a 45° angle, then straight out (see Figure
