Initial Startup
Product Operation
All U-Line controls are preset at the factory. Initial startup requires
no adjustments.
Air Flow
NOTICE
NOTICE
On ice maker equipped units, it is possible that dirt or
scale will dislodge in the water line. Always throw away all
ice cubes made during the first two to three hours of
operation.
OFF
The unit requires proper air flow to perform at its highest
efficiency. Do not block the front grille or internal fans at
any time, or the unit will not perform as expected. Do not

NOTICE
U-Line recommends allowing the unit to run overnight
before loading refrigerator or freezer with product.
To turn the unit on or off:
Press the rocker switch located below the temperature control
dial in the center of the grille (2), inside the door on the front
panel, or behind the grille.
Control Dial
Combo Models provide two temperature zones within the cabinet
to satisfy the specific storage requirements.
The control dial sets a single continuous temperature. This setpoint temperature is a base setting used by the controller to
maintain the temperature zone in the unit. The factory default MID
setting, number 3 or 4 set-point, for Beverage Center and
Refrigerator models is 38°F. The factory default set-point for Wine
Captain models is 50°F. The set-point temperature is a gauge for
further temperature adjustments.

Ice Maker Adjustment
Ice Maker
Ice Cube Thickness Adjustment
Ice Maker Operation
Interval - As Required
When the ice bucket is full, the ice making mechanism will shut off.
However, the refrigeration system will continue to cool and
maintain the ice supply. Frost-free ice maker units have lower ice
production than manual defrost units.
On ice maker equipped models, adjust the cube size by changing
water amount injected into the ice maker assembly as follows:
NOTICE
Do not place cans or bottles in the ice compartment
because they will freeze.
1
OFF
ON
2
To turn off ice production: Raise the bin arm into an upright
and locked position. The unit will preserve temperature for ice
storage.
NOTICE
If not intending to use the ice maker turn the water supply
valve off, it is important to raise the bin arm of the ice
maker (Figure 1). Failure to raise the bin arm may result
in damage to the water valve.
Certain sounds are normal during the unit’s operation. You may
hear the compressor or fan motor, the water valve, or ice
dropping into the ice bucket.
1. Remove the ice maker assembly cover (1).
2. Find the adjusting screw on the ice maker assembly control box
(2). The adjusting screw is just below the minus (-) and plus (+)
signs on the control box.
! CAUTION
! CAUTION
NEVER use an ice pick, knife or other sharp instrument to
separate cubes. Shake the ice bucket instead.
During periods of limited use or high ambient temperatures, it is
common for cubes to fuse together. Gently shake the bucket to
break apart cubes. If not using the ice maker regularly, empty the
ice bucket periodically to ensure fresh cubes.
Too large of an adjustment to the screw can cause the
water to overflow the ice maker and can cause property
damage.
3. Turn the adjusting screw toward the minus (-) sign (clockwise)
for smaller cubes or toward the plus (+) sign (counterclockwise)
for larger cubes.
4. Install the ice maker assembly cover.
It is normal for cubes to appear cloudy. The cause is air trapped in
the water because of fast freezing. It is not caused by the health,
taste or chemical make up of the water. It is the same air that is in
every glass of water you drink.
Remove the ice bucket for emptying and cleaning. To remove the
ice bucket, raise the bin arm and remove the bucket from the ice
compartment. Use the ice bucket for ice storage only.

Defrosting
.
Cleaning
Manual Defrost Models
Exterior Cleaning
Unit is a manual defrost model and will require occasional
defrosting. When there is build-up of 1/4” or more of frost
manually defrost the unit. Defrost every two months minimum.
Vinyl Clad (Black or White) Models:
• Clean surfaces with a mild detergent and warm water solution.
Do not use solvent-based or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft
sponge and rinse with clean water. Wipe with a soft, clean
towel to prevent water spotting.
• Ensure the door is closing and sealing properly.
• High ambient temperature and excessive humidity can also
produce frost.
• Clean any glass surfaces with a non-chlorine glass cleaner.
! CAUTION
Stainless Models:
• Stainless door panels, handles and frames can discolor when
exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, saltwater or cleaners
with bleach.
• Keep your stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a good
quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner polish monthly. For best
results use Claire® Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner, which can
be purchased from U-Line Corporation (Part Number 173348).
Comparable products are acceptable. Frequent cleaning will
remove surface contamination that could lead to rust. Some
installations may require cleaning weekly.
DO NOT use an ice pick or other sharp instrument to
help speed up defrosting. These instruments can puncture
the inner lining or damage the cooling unit. DO NOT use
any type of heater to defrost. Using a heater to speed up
defrosting can cause personal injury and damage to the
inner lining.
To defrost:
1. Disconnect power to the unit.
2. For combo models remove all products from the interior.
• Do not clean with steel wool pads.
3. Remove ice bucket and discard ice.
• Do not use stainless steel cleaners polishes on any glass
surfaces.
4. Place towel or other absorbent material on bottom of ice bin.
For combo models also place in bottom of unit.
• Clean any glass surfaces with a non-chlorine glass cleaner.
5. Fill the ice bucket half full with warm, not hot water. This will
help the unit defrost faster.
• Do not use cleaners not specifically intended for
stainless steel on stainless surfaces (this includes glass,
tile and counter cleaners).
• If any surface discoloring or rusting appears, clean it quickly
with Bon-Ami® or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser® and a
nonabrasive cloth. Always clean towards the grain. Always finish
with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable
product to prevent further problems.
• Using abrasive pads such as ScotchBrite™ will cause
the graining in the stainless to become blurred.
6. Place the ice bucket back into the unit on top of the towel or
other absorbent material.
7. Prop the door in an open position (2 in. (5 cm) minimum).
8. After about 1 hour remove the ice bin and discard water.
9. Allow the frost to melt naturally.
10. After the frost melts completely clean the interior and all
removed components. (See INTERIOR CLEANING)
• Rust not cleaned up promptly can penetrate the surface of the
stainless steel and complete removal of the rust may not be
possible.
NOTICE
Interior Cleaning
DO NOT clean ice bucket using a dishwasher. The bucket
is not dishwasher safe and will be damaged.
• Disconnect power to the unit.
11. When the interior is dry, reconnect power and turn unit on.
• Clean the interior and all removed components using a mild
nonabrasive detergent and warm water solution applied with a
soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth.
NOTE: To safeguard against contaminates in ice, discard first
three batches of ice after defrosting.
• Rinse the interior using a soft sponge and clean water.
• Do not use any solvent-based or abrasive cleaners.
These types of cleaners may transfer taste to the interior
products and damage or discolor the interior.

tiled floors and paneled walls have a tendency to reflect normal
appliance operating noises.
Listed below are common refrigeration components with brief
description of the normal operating sounds they make. NOTE:
Your product may not contain all the components listed.
• Compressor: The compressor makes a hum or pulsing sound
that may be heard when it operates.
