How your ice maker works When the ice maker is turned to “ON”: 16 l n Take a few minutes to read the ‘How your ice maker works” and “Things to remember” sections, Panel C, and the Use and Care Guide to fully understand your new ice maker. l l When the ice slab reaches the desired thickness: Preparing the ice maker for use: 17 n Open the ice maker door. Wash out the jnterior bin with a solution of two tablespoons baking soda and one quart water. Rinse the bin thoroughly with water. 18 n Turn the ice maker control knob to the “CLEAN” posttion. Check that the pump motor is operating correctly. Note: Only the pump motor operates in the “CLEAN” setting. Compressor and condenser fan both run. Water pump circulates water. Cutter grid becomes warm to touch. l l Wood panel dimensions l T l l hei$ht “X” l l/4” l Harvest cycle begins (normal harvest takes 1 to 2 minutes). Evaporator thermostat is satisfied. Compressor keeps running but the condenser fan will stop turning or turns very slowly. Water pump stops. Hot gas solenoid and water inlet valve open. Excess water is flushed out of the drain pan. Cutter grid remains warm to touch. 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.

Bin thermostat opens. Cutter grid remains on. Things to remember To change bin door panel: 1. Open bin door and remove two screws attaching handle to top of door. Remove handle. 2. Slide metal panel out of bin door. 3. Break off the ribs on the door insulation. Cycle begins again. Cutting process begins. l l 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 and tight. 4 Check that the power supply cord is plugged into the wall receptacle. 4 Check that the water line is turned on. 4 See the Use and Care Guide troubleshooting list.
