Automatic
Ice Maker
Part No. 2180911
Before you start...
Drain system requires either a gravity
floor-drain system or a drain pump (see
“Drain requirements”) to lift the water to
an existing drain. A l-l /4” minimum
diameter standpipe or 5/8” I.D. minimum
drain tube to an open drain is required.
Commercial installation sanitation
codes: National Sanitation Foundation
(NSF) installation procedures require
sealing the ice maker to the floor with
approved caulking compound.
We
recommend using a silicone-type sealer.
Shipboard installations require a water
deflector (available from your local
dealer or parts distributor). Install
deflector according to the instructions
provided with the deflector kit. The
deflector keeps the water that flows
over the evaporator from spilling into
the storage bin area.
Custom wood panels: The bin door and
lower panel can be customized to
match your wood cabinets. See
“Changing the bin door and lower
panel”, Panel C.

After the ice slab is released:
Check the operation:
Before running your ice maker for tne
first time, note the following:
l Water enters only during the harvest
cycle so the first harvest cycle will be
completed without water in the system.
l Water will not enter the pump
pan
until the freezing plate gets cold and
the ice maker begins a harvest cycle.
l Once the ice maker has been operating
for a while, a normal harvest cycle takes
between 1 to 2 minutes to complete.
However, the initial run takes approximately three hours to produce ice.
l The evaporator
thermostat opens
when the evaporator reaches the
preset temperature (+lo”F to -3”F,
depending on the thickness of the
ice). The hot gas solenoid and the
water valve solenoid are energized at
this time and the pump motor and fan
motor will shut down. The motors will
remain off and the solenoids will
remain charged until the evaporator
reaches 38°F (+ 2°F) again.
l
Ice maker must run at least 24 hours
before adjusting the thickness setting.
19
n Turn the control knob to
“ON” position. Check that the
condenser fan is revolving.
Ice maker must run for three hours
before ice will form.
three hours. When water flows over the
freezing plate, check that it is flowing
evenly. If it is not, the ice maker is not
level and Step 10 should be repeated.
21
n Continue to let the ice
maker run for 24 hours. Then check to
see if the cubes are the desired
thickness. If necessary, adjust the
thickness control.

The ice maker will automatically
continue to harvest ice until the
storage bin is full.
The ice maker will shut down when the
ice in the storage bin touches the bin
thermostat well. It will begin harvesting
ice again when ice is removed from
the bin.
The storage bin is not refrigerated, so
there will be some melting. This will
vary with the temperature of the room
where the ice maker is located.
The ice maker must have good
ventilation to work properly. Do Not
block the front of the ice maker. Keep
the front air grille and condenser
clean.
The water system, including the filter
screen in the water solenoid valve,
needs to be cleaned periodically for
good circulation. Instructions for
cleaning the water system are located
on the inner door panel.
As the temperature of the room and
water varies, so will the amount of ice
produced. Higher operating
temperatures will result in less ice
made. To make the most ice, set the
thickness control to produce l/2” to
5/8” thick cubes.
If the ice maker
does not operate:
If you need
assistance:
4 Check that the circuit breaker is not
tripped or the house fuse is intact
