INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Ice Maker
•
•
•
•
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
1 removable ice bin
1 plastic scoop
25 ft. hose
1 instruction manual
Before connecting the ice maker to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours. This
will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installation of Your Ice Maker
• This appliance is designed to be either free-standing or built-in (fully recessed). If free standing, the unit
should have at least 4” of clearance at both sides, at the top and at the back to allow for adequate
ventilation. If it is built-in, leave at least 3/16” at both sides, 1/16” at the top and 2” at the rear. Be sure
that airflow under the appliance is not blocked.
• Place your ice maker on a floor that is strong enough to support the ice maker when it is fully loaded.
(Remember that the unit will be significantly heavier once it is fully loaded.) To level your ice maker,
adjust the leg at the front of the unit.
• Locate the ice maker away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct
sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption.
Extremely cold ambient temperatures may also cause the ice maker not to perform properly.
• Avoid locating the ice maker in moist areas. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost to form quickly
on the evaporator requiring more frequent defrosting of the ice maker.
• Plug the ice maker into an exclusive, properly-installed grounded wall outlet. Do not under any
circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning
power and or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized SUMMIT
products service center.
Electrical Connection
WARNING
IMPROPER USE OF THE GROUNDED PLUG CAN RESULT IN THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. IF THE POWER
CORD IS DAMAGED, HAVE IT REPLACED BY AN AUTHORIZED SUMMIT PRODUCTS SERVICE CENTER.
•
This ice maker should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this ice maker is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three-prong wall outlets to minimize the
possibility of electrical shock.
•
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.
•
Never use an extension cord to connect power to the unit.
•
Never use a two-prong grounding adapter.
•
When a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered, contact a qualified electrician to have it replaced
with a 3-prong receptacle in accordance with applicable electrical codes.
•
This ice maker requires a standard 115/120 volts AC, 60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground.
2
•
To prevent accidental injury, the cord should be secured behind the ice maker and not left exposed or
dangling.
Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do not
use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely
necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding
type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.
Connecting the Water Supply
WARNING
IMPROPER WATER LINE CONNECTION MAY RESULT IN FLOODING.
YOU MUST USE A LICENSED PLUMBER.
REVIEW STATE AND LOCAL PLUMBING CODES BEFORE INSTALLATION.
•
Not all the necessary hardware is provided for installation so it is necessary to hire a professional
licensed plumber to complete the installation.
•
Connect tubing (supplied with unit) to the nearest cold water source. Connect sufficient tubing to the
unit to allow the appliance to be moved freely for cleaning and service. Also make sure that the tubing is
not pinched or damaged during transportation.
•
Position unit to allow free airflow through the front grill (see sketch 1). Wipe out inside of unit and ice bin
with a damp cloth.
SKETCH 1
Reversing The Door Swing Of Your Ice Maker
This appliance has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right side. The unit is delivered to
you with the door opening from the left side. Should you desire to reverse the opening direction, please call
customer service for reversal instructions.

OPERATING YOUR ICE MAKER
Initial Start-Up Operation
1. Plug the appliance into a 115/120V AC polarized and grounded wall electrical outlet.
2. Place the ON-OFF switch in the ON position.
3. Make sure the water supply is on. As soon as the inner mechanism reaches the proper temperature,
the icemaker mechanism will fill the mold with water.
4. The first cubes may be small because of air in the water line. Later cubes will be of standard crescentmoon shape.
5. Approximate time for the first cycle is between 30-40 minutes.
6. Each cycle will take approximately 0.15 quarts of water so the ice bin should be full after 11 hours.
IMPORTANT: THROW AWAY ALL ICE CUBES MADE DURING THE FIRST 3 HOURS OF OPERATION.
•
When the ice bin is full, the ice-making mechanism will automatically shut off.
However the system will continue to cool and maintain the cubes supply.
•
Ice delivery may be interrupted by raising the metal arm into an upright position
(see sketch 2)
•
If the ice maker is not used regularly, it is recommended that the ice bin be
emptied periodically to insure fresh ice.
•
Sometimes the cubes may appear cloudy. This should not be a cause for concern and has nothing to
do with the taste or chemical make-up of the water.
•
The front grill should be kept free of dust and lint to permit free airflow.
•
This unit should be defrosted approximately every 4-6 weeks or when frost on the ice maker walls is
excessive or ¼” thick. To defrost, turn the unit off, remove cubes and keep door open at least two
inches.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Ice Maker
•
Turn the switch control to OFF, unplug the ice maker and remove the ice bin.
•
Wash the inside with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should consist of about 2
tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
•
Wash the ice bin with a mild detergent solution.
•
The outer cabinet of the ice maker should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water. Clean the
door and handle with an approved stainless steel cleaning product. Do not use steel wool or a steel
brush on the stainless steel.
•
The condenser coils should be vacuumed when they are dusty or dirty.
CAUTION
FAILURE TO UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER BEFORE CLEANING COULD RESULT IN ELECTRICAL
SHOCK OR PERSONAL INJURY.
Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your ice
maker if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be off for a longer
period of time, you need to take the proper steps to disconnect your appliance.
Vacation Time/Storage
1.
Shut off water supply at the main water valve.
2.
Disconnect the water supply line from valve.
3.
Allow unit to run for an hour or two until all remaining ice cubes have been ejected.
4.
Disconnect unit from main power source.
5.
Dry out excess water from ice maker assembly
6.
Leave the door open at least two inches.
Moving Your Ice Maker
•
Securely tape down all loose items inside your ice maker.
•
Turn the leveling screws up to the base to avoid damage.
•
Tape the door shut.
•
Be sure the ice maker stays in the upright position during transportation.
Energy-Saving Tips
•
The ice maker should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances
or heating ducts, and out of direct sunlight.
