Think
outside the kitchen
Office
Laundry
No cabinet space? No problem! Our ice makers have a
finished cabinet so they don’t have to be built-in and can
function as freestanding units. From mud rooms and bars
to home theaters and basements, there are plenty of spaces
primed and ready for an ice maker other than the kitchen.
All you need is electricity, water and a place to drain.
Alternate Installation Options
ƒƒ The laundry room is a great spot for an ice maker because the water
supply and drain are already in place and it’s often close to the kitchen
ƒƒ Outdoor kitchens are the perfect place for our outdoor ice maker
when grilling out in the summertime
ƒƒ Basements and workshops are often convenient locations that are
closer to the places you entertain (such as a game room)
ƒƒ An ice maker in your mud room or foyer makes getting
ice for ice packs and injuries a painless affair

Quick and Easy Installation
Installation of your new ice maker is as easy as 1-2-3.
1.First, you’ll need ¼" width copper tubing with compression fittings to install the
water line to the ice maker. Extra tubing will be needed to allow the ice maker
to be pulled out if service is necessary.
2.For a gravity drain system, push the ice maker into position so the drain tube
is over the floor drain pipe. For a drain pump system, connect the drain pump
outlet hose to the drain.
3.Finish the job by adjusting the rear legs of the ice maker based on counter
height and then leveling the front legs.
For more detailed instructions, refer to the Use & Care guide included
with your ice maker.
Do You Need a Pump with That?
No pump needed:
There is a floor drain pipe no more than
2" from the floor at the install site
Pump needed:
Any other situation
When in doubt, use a pump.

Add-On Essentials
Make sure customers don’t leave without these key products. By maintaining
the ice maker’s appearance and operation, they can extend that “just like new”
look and feel and keep the ice coming.

Ice Machine Cleaner

including their bins, evaporators and other parts. Use every
six months to help ensure efficient operation.
(Part No. 4396808)
Condensate Water Pump
Removes water resulting from melting ice for ice makers

Keep It Clean
7
Ice makers need to be cleaned regularly to keep them operating at peak
efficiency. Minerals removed from the water during the freezing cycle
eventually form hard deposits. The Cleaning/Reset status light will help
you know when to use your Ice Machine Cleaner to reduce these deposits
(as often as every six months, depending on water hardness).
