Changing the bin door
panel
The storage bin door is designed to accept an optional
decorative wood panel of your choice.
The wood panel should be no more than l/4 inch (6 mm)
thick. Cut it to the same size as the production metal
panel. See Figure 1.
To change the panel:
1. Open the bin door.
2. Remove the two screws on top of the door which
hold the handle.
3. Remove the handle and pocket.
Thermostat calibrations
If ice maker is installed above two thousand feet of
altitude, the bin and evaporator thermostats must be
adjusted to a warmer setting. Disconnect electricity,
remove thermostat and follow the directions for turning the altitude adjustment screw as shown in the label
on each thermostat.
Shipboard operation
When this ice cube maker is installed aboard a ship,
it will be necessary to purchase and install a water
deflector. This deflector hangs between the lower edge
of the evaporator and the cutter grid. It keeps the water
flowing over the evaporator from spilling into the
storage bin area. Order the necessary parts from your
local ice maker dealer.
4. Slide the metal panel out.
5. Break off the ribs on the door insulation

4. Remove all tape and packaging material from the
outside and inside of the cabinet. See Figure 4.
5. Remove the front grill; take out the screws securing
the grill at the bottom and lift it free of cabinet.
6. Turn the fan by hand to make certain it moves freely.
7. Loosen thumb screws holding cutter grid and water
pan to “thumb tight.”
Utilities
2. Area should be well ventilated with temperature
above 55OF and below 11 OOF. Best results are obtained between 7O’JF and 9OOF.
3. Provision for electricity, water and drain connections
should be determined.
4. The unit may be closed in on the top and three sides,
but the front MUST BE unobstructed for air circulation and proper operation. Installation should be
such that the cabinet can be moved forward for servicing, if necessary.
Level unit
1. After placing unit in position, check to make certain
the unit is level side to side and front to back.
2. Accurate leveling is essential for proper operation.
3. Unit should be shimmed so that it is solid as well
as level. The shims should be of hard permanent
type material such as masonite.

a shut-off valve.
4. If required by sanitation code, seal the cabinet to the

2. Either a gravity drain system or a sump pump to lift
the water to an existing drain.
1. Use l/4” OD soft copper tubing for the cold water

breaker.
2. Provide a convenient
water line.

Always purge the water line before making the final connection to the inlet of the water valve to prevent possible water valve malfunction.
After the cabinet is in place, bend the tubing to meet
the connection at the water valve. The garden hose
threaded compression fitting is found in the parts bag.
This joint provides a convenient disconnect for service.
Be sure the tubing is clear of compressor, to prevent
rattle.
1. Place unit so the front side will be completely
unobstructed to provide proper air flow.

Condensate pump
1. When drain connection below the level of the unit
is not available a condensate pump may be used to
lift the water to an available drain.
2. Install condensate pump on floor behind ice maker
with discharge tube to the rear. Run bin drain directly
into pump as shown in the illustration.

Electrical requirements
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15 Amp fused electrical
supply is required (time delay fuse or circuit breaker
is recommended). It is recommended that a separate
circuit, serving only this appliance, be provided. DO
NOT use an extension cord.

grounding methods
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,
REMOVE
THE POWER SUPPLY CORD GROUND PRONG.
For your personal safety, this appliance must be
grounded. This appliance is equipped with a power
supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To
minimize possible shock hazard, 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 and obligation of the customer to have
a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed
by a qualified electrician. See Figure 6.
If changing and properly grounding the wall receptacle
is impossible and where local codes permit (consult
your electrical inspector), a temporary adapter may be
plugged into the existing 2-prong wall receptacle to
mate with the 3-prong power supply cord. See Figure
7. THIS, HOWEVER, IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
If this is done, you must connect the grounding eyelet
on the adapter to the wall receptacle cover plate screw
and from this same screw, you must connect a separate
copper ground wire (No. 4 minimum) to a grounded cold
water pipe*. See Figure 7. Do not ground to a gas supply pipe. Do not connect to electrical supply until appliance is permanently grounded.
*Cold water pipe must have metal continuity to electrical ground and not be interrupted by plastic, rubber
or other electrically insulating connectors (including
waler meter or pump) without adding a jumper wire at
these connections.

The unit will shut off when ice in the storage bin
touches the bin thermostat well and will automatically cycle to keep the bin full.
The storage bin is not refrigerated and some meltage
will occur. This, too, varies wrth the room
temperature.
The unit needs good air circulation to perform efficiently. Keep the front grill and the condenser clean.
The water system, including filter screen in the water
inlet solenoid valve, needs to be cleaned periodically
for good circulation. Instructions are located on the
inner door panel.

CUBELET CUTTER GRIDS
This model operates at 115 volts except for the cutter
grid circuit which operates at 8.5 volts at 1 amp.
The compressor runs at all times except when the bin
thermostat becomes satisfied and opens up. This deenergizes the system except for the transformer and
cutter grid.
Under normal operating
conditions,
when the
evaporator reaches the preset temperature (+ 100 to
-30 F, depending on thickness of ice) the evaporator
thermostat opens, terminating operation of the fan
motor and pump motor. The hot gas solenoid and the
water valve solenoid are energized at this time and remain so until the evaporator reaches 38 + 2OF.
