IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
aWARNINGa
•
•
FOLLOW THESE BASIC PRECAUTIONS TO
REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL
SHOCK, OR INJURY WHEN USING YOUR ICE
MAKER.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE ICE MAKER.
DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT.
CHILD ENTRAPMENT AND SUFFOCATION ARE NOT PROBLEMS OF THE PAST. JUNKED OR ABANDONED
APPLIANCES ARE STILL DANGEROUS.
•
•
•
•
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR ICE MAKER: TAKE OFF THE DOOR.
NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO OPERATE, PLAY WITH, OR CRAWL INSIDE THE
APPLIANCE.
NEVER CLEAN ICE MAKER PARTS WITH FLAMMABLE FLUIDS. THE FUMES CAN
CREATE A FIRE HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.
DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR ANY OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND
LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE. THE FUMES CAN
CREATE A FIRE HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.
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 ICE BUCKET
• 1 PLASTIC SCOOP
• 1 HOSE, 25 FT.
• 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 VENT HOT AIR THROUGH THE FRONT VENT. THIS
ALLOWS FOR INSTALLATION IN A RECESSED OR BUILT-IN APPLICATION, IF DESIRED.
• PLACE YOUR ICE MAKER ON A LEVEL SURFACE 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 OPERATIONAL AND FULLY LOADED. LEVEL YOUR
ICE MAKER BY ADJUSTING THE LEGS AT THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER.
• LOCATE THE ICE MAKER AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND SOURCES OF HEAT
(STOVE, HEATER, RADIATOR, ETC.). DIRECT SUNLIGHT MAY AFFECT THE FINISH AND
HEAT SOURCES MAY INCREASE ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION. EXTREME COLD AMBIENT
TEMPERATURES MAY ALSO CAUSE THE ICE MAKER TO MALFUNCTION. THIS ICE MAKER
IS DESIGNED FOR INSTALLATION INDOORS IN “ROOM TEMPERATURE” AMBIENT
CONDITIONS.
• AVOID LOCATING THE ICE MAKER IN MOIST/HUMID AREAS. TOO MUCH MOISTURE IN THE
AIR WILL CAUSE FROST TO FORM QUICKLY ON THE EVAPORATOR REQUIRING
FREQUENT DEFROSTING.
• PLUG THE ICE MAKER INTO A DEDICATED, 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.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
aWARNINGa
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
SERVICER.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD TO CONNECT POWER TO THE UNIT.
DO NOT USE A TWO-PRONG GROUNDING ADAPTER.
IF YOU ONLY HAVE A TWO-PRONG WALL RECEPTACLE, 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 VOLTS A.C. 60HZ ELECTRICAL OUTLET
WITH THREE-PRONG GROUND.
THE CORD SHOULD BE SECURED BEHIND THE ICE MAKER AND NOT LEFT EXPOSED OR
LOOSE.
EXTENSION CORD
BECAUSE OF POTENTIAL SAFETY HAZARDS, THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR
USE WITH AN EXTENSION CORD. HOWEVER, IF YOU MUST USE AN EXTENSION CORD, USE
ONLY A UL/CUL-LISTED, 3-WIRE GROUNDING TYPE APPLIANCE EXTENSION CORD WITH A
GROUNDING TYPE PLUG AND OUTLET. THE ELECTRICAL RATING OF THE CORD MUST BE
115 VOLTS AND AT LEAST 10 AMPS.

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
aWARNINGa
IMPROPER WATER LINE CONNECTION MAY RESULT IN FLOODING
YOU MUST USE A LICENSED PLUMBER
REVIEW STATE AND LOCAL PLUMBING CODES BEFORE INSTALLATION
•
•
•
•
ALL THE NECESSARY HARDWARE IS NOT PROVIDED (AS THE PLUMBING FIXTURES AT
THE INSTALLATION POINT MAY DIFFER) 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.
HAVE SUFFICIENT TUBING TO ALLOW UNIT TO BE MOVED FREELY
FOR CLEANING AND SERVICE. ALSO MAKE SURE THAT THE TUBING
IS NOT PINCHED OR DAMAGED DURING TRANSPORTATION AND/OR
INSTALLATION.
POSITION UNIT TO ALLOW AIRFLOW THROUGH THE FRONT GRILL
(SEE FIGURE 1).
FIGURE 1
WIPE THE INSIDE OF UNIT AND ICE BUCKET WITH A DAMP CLOTH.
DANGER or WARNING:
1. Risk of child entrapment. Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:
Take off doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.”
2. Do not use extension cords.
2
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 (HINGED ON THE RIGHT). TO REVERSE THE OPENING DIRECTION, PLEASE CALL
CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR DIRECTIONS.
OPERATING YOUR ICE MAKER
INITIAL START-UP OPERATION
1. THE UNIT MUST BE PROPERLY INSTALLED BY A LICENCED PLUMBER.
2. MAKE SURE THE ON-OFF SWITCH IS IN THE “OFF” POSITION.
3. PLUG THE APPLIANCE INTO AN 115V POLARIZED AND GROUNDED WALL ELECTRICAL
OUTLET.
4. TURN THE ON-OFF SWITCH TO THE “ON” POSITION.
5. MAKE SURE THE WATER SUPPLY IS ON. AS SOON AS THE INNER MECHANISM REACHES
THE PROPER TEMPERATURE, THE ICEMAKER WILL BEGING TO FILL WITH WATER.
6. THE FIRST CUBES MAY BE SMALL DUE TO AIR IN THE WATER LINE. LATER CUBES WILL BE
OF STANDARD CRESCENT MOON SHAPE AND SIZE.
7. THE APPROXIMATE TIME FOR THE FIRST CYCLE IS BETWEEN 40-50 MINUTES
8. EACH CYCLE WILL CONSUME ABOUT 4 FL.OZ. OF WATER
IMPORTANT: THROW AWAY ALL ICE CUBES MADE DURING THE FIRST 3 HOURS OF
OPERATION.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
WHEN THE ICE BUCKET IS FULL, THE ICE MAKING MECHANISM WILL
AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF. THE REFRIGERATION SYSTEM WILL
CONTINUE TO COOL AND MAINTAIN FREEZING TEMPERATURES WITHIN
THE UNIT.
THE ICE MAKING FUNCTION MAY BE TEMPORARILY STOPPED BY
RAISING THE METAL ARM TO AN UPRIGHT POSITION (SEE FIGURE 2)
FIGURE 2
IF THE ICEMAKER IS NOT USED REGULARLY, WE RECOMMEND THAT
THE ICE BUCKET BE EMPTIED PERIODICALLY TO ENSURE 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 ABOUT EVERY 4-6 WEEKS OR WHEN FROST ON THE
ICE MAKER WALLS IS EXCESSIVE (¼” OR THICKER). TO DEFROST, TURN THE UNIT OFF,
REMOVE/DISCARD THE EXISTING CUBES AND KEEP DOOR OPEN AT LEAST TWO INCHES.
YOU MAY WANT TO PLACE A TOWEL UNDERNEATH THE OPEN DOOR TO SOAK UP ANY
WATER.
DO NOT SCRAPE OFF THE FROST WITH ANYTHING EXCEPT A PLASTIC SCRAPER.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING YOUR ICE MAKER
• TURN THE SWITCH CONTROL TO "OFF" POSITION, UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER AND REMOVE
THE BUCKET.
• WASH THE INSIDE WITH A WARM WATER AND BAKING SODA SOLUTION. THE SOLUTION
SHOULD BE ABOUT 2 TABLESPOONS OF BAKING SODA TO A QUART OF WATER.
• WASH THE BUCKET WITH A MILD DETERGENT SOLUTION.
• THE OUTSIDE OF THE ICE MAKER SHOULD BE CLEANED WITH MILD DETERGENT AND
WARM WATER.
• THE STAINLESS STEEL COMPONENTS OF THE DOOR SHOULD BE CLEANED WITH
3
•
STAINLESS STEEL CLEANER
THE CONDENSER COILS SHOULD BE VACUUMED WHEN THEY ARE DUSTY OR DIRTY.
CAUTION
FAILURE TO UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER PRIOR TO CLEANING, MOVING, OR SERVICING 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
SHOULD TAKE THE PROPER STEPS TO DISCONNECT YOUR APPLIANCE.
VACATION TIME/STORAGE
1.
SHUT OFF THE WATER SUPPLY AT THE MAIN WATER VALVE.
2.
DISCONNECT THE WATER SUPPLY LINE FROM THE VALVE.
3.
ALLOW THE UNIT TO RUN FOR AN HOUR OR TWO UNTIL ALL REMAINING ICE CUBES
HAVE BEEN EJECTED AND ALL WATER HAS CYCLED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AND HAS
BEEN MADE INTO ICE CUBES.
4.
DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM THE MAIN POWER SOURCE.
5.
DRY OUT EXCESS WATER FROM THE 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.
• MAKE 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 SOURCES, AND OUT OF THE DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
