ICE MAKER SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when using your ice maker, follow these basic
precautions:
■
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
■
Disconnect power before cleaning.
■
Do not remove ground prong.
■
Disconnect power before servicing.
■
Do not use an adapter.
■
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
■
Do not use an extension cord.
■
Use two or more people to move and install ice maker.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
■
The ice maker must be installed in an area sheltered from the
elements, such as wind, rain, water spray, or drip.
■
When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the
recommended opening dimensions shown. Place electrical
and plumbing fixtures in the recommended location as
shown.
Unpack the Ice Maker
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
NOTES:
Use two or more people to move and install ice maker.
■
Be sure the power supply cord is not pinched between
the ice maker and the cabinet.
■
Be sure the water supply line is not pinched between the
ice maker and the cabinet.
■
Be sure the drain line (on some models) is not pinched
between the ice maker and the cabinet.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Removing Packaging Materials
Remove tape and glue from your ice maker before using.
■ To remove any remaining tape or glue from the exterior of the
ice maker, rub the area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue
residue can also be easily removed by rubbing a small
amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with your
fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
■
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. Do not
use chlorine bleach on the stainless steel surfaces of the ice
maker. These products can damage the surface of your ice
maker.

Location Requirements

To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front side
must be completely unobstructed. The ice maker may be
closed-in on the top and three sides, but the installation
should allow the ice maker to be pulled forward for servicing
if necessary.
Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet
of ¹⁄₄" (6.35 mm) OD soft copper tubing with a shutoff valve
and either a gravity-drain system or condensate pump to
carry the water to an existing drain.
Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F
(13°C) and below 110°F (43°C). Best results are obtained
between 70°F (21°C) and 90°F (32°C).

and plumbing fixtures
B. Floor level
■
Choose a location where the floor is even. It is important for
the ice maker to be level in order to work properly. If needed,
you can adjust the height of the ice maker by changing the
height of the leveling legs. See “Leveling.”
Electrical Requirements
WARNING
Water Supply Requirements
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If
you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
IMPORTANT:
■ Reverse osmosis water filtration systems can be used only
with ice maker installations that have a gravity drain. A
reverse osmosis system is not recommended for ice makers
that have a drain pump installed.
■
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your ice maker into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection:
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply,
properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical
Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice
maker, be provided. Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off
by a switch or pull chain.
IMPORTANT: If this product is connected to a GFCI (Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter) equipped outlet, nuisance tripping of the
power supply may occur, resulting in loss of cooling. Ice quality
may be affected. If nuisance tripping has occurred, and if the
condition of the ice appears poor, dispose of it.
The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse
osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the ice
maker needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and
827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
NOTE: The reverse osmosis system must provide 1 gal. (3.8 L) of
water per hour to the ice maker for proper ice maker operation. If
a reverse osmosis system is desired, only a whole-house
capacity reverse osmosis system, capable of maintaining the
steady water supply required by the ice maker, is recommended.
Faucet capacity reverse osmosis systems are not able to
maintain the steady water supply required by the ice maker.
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
■ Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
■
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Recommended grounding method
The ice maker must be grounded. The ice maker is equipped with
a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug. The cord
must be plugged into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-type wall
receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National Electrical
Code and local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle
is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to
have a properly grounded, 3 prong wall receptacle installed by a
qualified electrician.
Leveling
It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work
properly. Depending upon where you install the ice maker, you
may need to make several adjustments to level it. You may also
use the leveling legs to lower the height of the ice maker for
undercounter installations.
Tools needed:
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
■ 9" level
■
Adjustable wrench
NOTE: It is easier to adjust the leveling legs if you have another
person to assist you.
1. Move the ice maker to its final location.
NOTE: If this is a built-in installation, move the ice maker as
close as possible to the final location.
2. Place the level on top of the product to see if the ice maker is
level from front to back and side to side.
