WARNING
IMPROPER USE OF THE GROUNDED PLUG CAN RESULT IN THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL
SHOCK. IF THE POWER CORD IS DAMAGED, HAVE IT REPLACED BY AN AUTHORIZED
AVANTI PRODUCTS SERVICE CENTER.
This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the
possibility of electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For
personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to
have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also
prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug
the appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the
receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end.
When moving the appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.

EXTENSION CORD
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least
10 amperes.

SURGE PROTECTOR
Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very
susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges / outages;
it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances you use. The
surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the appliance it is
connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector needed contact
a licensed electrician in your area.
Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your
product warranty.

nivel de agua en el tanque fuera muy bajo, el indicador para añadir agua (ADD WATER) se
iluminará en ROJO y detendrá el funcionamiento.
Presione el botón Power y llene el tanque de agua.
Una vez que haya añadido el agua, el indicador se apagará y empezará a funcionar
normalmente.
Cuando los cubos de hielo se van almacenando y llegan al tope del sensor, la máquina de
dispensar hielo detendrá el funcionamiento y el indicador de ICE FULL (CICLO COMPLETO)
se encenderá.
Hay dos tamaños de cubos de hielo para su elección, por lo tanto, mientras más grande sea el
tamaño deseado más tiempo tomará el ciclo completo. Cuando la temperatura ambiente sea
más baja que 15°C (59ºF), se recomienda elegir cubos de hielo de tamaño S pequeño ya que
esto evitará que los cubos de hielo se peguen unos a otros.
Para mejor funcionamiento, la temperatura del agua debe estar entre 7°C (45ºF) y 35°C (95ºF)
y la del ambiente entre 15°C (59ºF) y 25°C (77ºF).
