•
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice maker, be provided. Use
receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
Never clean ice maker parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create a fire
hazard or explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard
or explosion.
Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power line
of the unit is disconnected and the water line is shut off

•
Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your ice maker unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
•
•
•
•
Use two or more people to move and install ice maker. Failure to do so can result in a
back injury or other injury.
To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, Choose a well-ventilated
area with
temperatures above 50°F and below 100°F. This unit MUST be installed in an area
protected from the elements, e.g., wind, rain, water spray or drips.
The ice maker should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.
The ice maker must be installed with all electrical, water and drain connections in
accordance with state and local codes. A standard electrical supply (115 V, 60 Hz,),
properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and
ordinances is required.
Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord between the ice maker and cabinet.
The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 3 amp.
It is important for the ice maker to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need
to make several adjustments to level it.
All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
Make certain that the pipes are not pinched or kinked or damaged during installation.
Check for leaks after water line connection.

Harvest: During the harvest cycle the compressor is still operating, but the water pump

The gas warms the evaporator,

3. Shut off the electric supply at the main electrical
power source.
4. Take out the ice storage bin to remove ice and water. Dry it.

of LEDs
and buttons:
1. Ice Full (Red) LED: Ice Full indicator
light.
When this LED is lit, the ice storage bin is full of ice or there is something obstructing
the ice-full probe. The unit will stop working. When ice cubes are taken out of the ice
storage bin, clearing the ice-full probe, the red LED will keep flashing for 3 minutes.
Then the unit will restart and return to the ice making mode.
2. Ice Making
(Green)
LED: Ice Making indicator
light.
When this LED is lit, the unit is working in the Ice Making mode controlled by a
temperature probe on the evaporator. When the green LED is flashing, the unit is
working in the Ice Making mode controlled by a fixed timer.
3. Ice Harvest (Yellow) LED: Ice Harvest indicator light.
When this LED is lit, the unit is working
in the Ice Harvest mode controlled
by the
ice-full probe.
When the green and yellow LEDs are lit, the unit is working in the cold preservation
stage.
4. Mode button:
Mainly for service. When this button is pressed, unit can change from
Ice Making mode to Ice Harvest mode, or from Ice Harvest mode to Ice Making
mode. You can judge the mode from the status of the green and yellow LEDs.
