SAFETY INFORMATION
Recognize Safety Information
This is the safety-alert symbol. When you see this
symbol on our machine or in this manual, be alert to
the potentially of personal injury.
Follow recommended precautions and safe operating
practices.
Understand Signal Words
A signal word - DANGER, WARNING, OR CAUTION
is used with the safety-alert symbol. DANGER identifies the most serious hazards.
Safety signs with signal word DANGER or WARNING
are typically near specific hazards.
General precautions are listed on CAUTION safety
signs. CAUTION also calls attention to safety messages in this manual.
DANGER
WARNING
CAUTION
Follow Safety Instructions
Carefully read all safety messages in this manual and on your machine safety signs. Keep safety signs in
good condition. Replace missing or damaged safety signs. Learn how to operate the machine and how to
use the controls properly. Do not let anyone operate the machine without instructions. Keep your machine in
proper working condition. Unauthorized modifications to the machine may impair function and/or safety and
affect the machine life.
CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) Warning
CO2 Displaces Oxygen. Strict Attention must be observed in the prevention of CO2 (carbon dioxide)
gas leaks in the entire CO2 and soft drink system. If a CO2 gas leak is suspected, particularly in a
small area, immediately ventilate the contaminated area before attempting to repair the leak. Personnel exposed to high concentration of CO2 gas will experience tremors which are followed rapidly by
loss of consciousness and suffocation.
Shipping, Storing, Or Relocating Unit
CAUTION: Before shipping, storing, or relocating this Unit, the syrup systems must be sanitized and
all sanitizing solution must be purged from the syrup systems. All water must also be purged from
the plain and carbonated water systems. A freezing ambient temperature will cause residual water
remaining inside the Unit to freeze resulting in damage to internal components of the Unit.

OWNER’S RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE
SEMI–ANNUAL MAINTENANCE
1. GENERAL ICE MACHINE INSPECTION
2. CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
3. CLEANING THE CONDENSER–AIR – COOLED
4. INTERIOR CLEANING–CLEANING PROCEDURES, SANITIZING PROCUDURES
General Ice Machine Inspection
1. Check all water fittings and tubes for leaks. Also, make sure the refrigeration tubing is not rubbing or vibrating against other tubing panels, etc.
2. Do not stack anything ( boxes, etc.) on or around the ice machine.
3. Do not cover the ice machine while it is operating. There must be adequate air flow through and around the
ice machine to ensure long component life and adequate ice production.
Cleaning the Exterior
1. Clean the area around the ice machine as often as necessary to maintain cleanliness and efficient operation.
2. Sponge dust and dirt off the outside of the ice machine with mild soap and water. Wipe dry with a soft clean
cloth.
WARNING: Stainless steel panels should be cleaned with mild soap or a commercial
stainless steel cleaner. Do not use cleaners containing bleaching agents; they usually
contain chlorine which stains stainless steel. Heavy stains should be removed with
stainless steel wool. Never use plain steel wool or abrasive pads because they will scratch the
panel and cause rusting.
Cleaning the Condenser
CAUTION: Disconnect electric power to the ice machine at the electric service switch box
before cleaning condenser !
Air–Cooled Condenser
A dirty condenser restricts airflow which results in excessively high operating temperatures. High operating temperatures reduces ice production and shorten component life. Clean the condenser at least every six months.
CAUTION: Condenser fins are sharp. Use care when cleaning them.
630460069OPR

1. Clean the outside of the condenser with a soft brush or vacuum with a brush attachment. Brush or wash
condenser from top to bottom not from side to side. Be careful not to bend the fins. Shine a flashlight through
the condenser to check for dirt between the fins.
2. If further cleaning is required, blow compressed air through the condenser from the inside. Take care not to
bend the fan blades. Shine flashlight through the condenser to check that all the dirt is removed.
IMPORTANT: Any bent condenser fins must be straightened with a fin comb. Contact your local
service agent to do this service.
Water-Cooled Condenser (and regulating valve)
The water-cooled condenser and water regulating valve may require cleaning due to scale build-up.
Low ice production, high water consumption, and high operating temperatures and pressures all may be symptoms of restrictions in the condenser water circuit.
IMPORTANT: The cleaning procedures require special pumps and cleaning solutions and, therefore,
should be performed by qualified maintenance or service personnel.
Cleaning the Interior
Approved ice machine cleaner by brand name:
S Calgon Nickel Safe ( green color only )
NOTES:
Failure to use approved product will void the warranty.
CAUTION: Ice machine cleaners are acidic–based chemicals. Before beginning any
cleaning of the cuber, the ice in the storage bin or dispenser must be removed.
WARNING: When using any chemical, rubber gloves and eye protection should be worn.
Prep Clean
Use full–Strength ice machine cleaner on a coarse surface material ( such as terry cloth ) and wipe down the
inside wall of the evaporator area, the water pan, the water curtain and evaporator plastic extrusions. If the water distributor tube has heavy scale build–up, remove and soak it in full–strength ice machine cleaner (or exchange the tube and clean the scaled tube at later date).

Cleaning the Water System & Evaporator
POWER
SWITCH
ON
OFF
CLEAN
DUMP
VALVE
1. Set the switch to CLEAN and allow the ice on the evaporator to
release and melt away.
2. Remove all ice from the storage bin.
3. Add 3 oz. for a single evaporator of “Calgon Nickel–Safe” ice
machine cleaner directly into the water pan. Set switch to
CLEAN, circulate for a maximum of 15 minutes.
4. Depress and hold the dump switch to allow the cleaner to drain
away.
5. Fill the water pan with fresh water, circulate for approximately 3
minutes. Depress the DUMP switch and allow the water to
drain away. Repeat this procedure 3 times.
6. After third rinse cycle, place product power switch in on position. Allow product to produce one slab of ice––––DISCARD
THE ICE.
7. When clean cycle is complete, return cuber to normal operating
mode.
Note: Please Take Note of the following:
S · Ice machine should only be cleaned when needed, not by a timed schedule of every 60 days, etc.
S · Should your ice machine require cleaning more than twice a year, consult your distributor or dealer about
proper water treatment.
SANITIZING PROCEDURES
NOTE: To be performed only after cleaning the ice machine:
1. *Add 1/4-ounce (7.08 g) sodium hypochlorite solution ( common liquid laundry bleach ) to the water pan
and allow the pump to circulate the solution for 5 minutes. You may also use a commercial sanitizer such
as Calgon Ice Machine Sanitizer following the directions on the product label.
2. Turn the product power switch off. Depress and hold the dump switch to drain the water pan.
3. To sanitize the bin and other surface areas, use 1 ounce of liquid bleach per gallon of water and wipe all
areas with the solution. Or use a commercial sanitizer.
4. Place the product power switch in the on position. Discard the first batch of ice produced.
5. Cleaning and sanitizing are now complete. Product may be returned to normal service.
*Make certain the water curtains are correctly positioned before operating the water pump.

TROUBLESHOOTING
IMPORTANT: Only qualified personnel should service internal components or electrical wiring.
WARNING: If repairs are to be made to a product system, remove quick disconnects from
the applicable product tank, then relieve the system pressure before proceeding. If repairs
are to be made to the CO2 system, stop dispensing, shut off the CO2 supply, then relieve the
system pressure before proceeding. If repairs are to be made to the refrigeration system, make sure
electrical power is disconnected from the unit.
