CAUTION
To Avoid Property Damage:
•
Copper tubing is recommended for the water supply
line. Water supply tubing made of ¼” plastic is not
recommended since it greatly increases the potential
for water leaks. Manufacturer will not be responsible
for any damage if plastic tubing is used for supply
line.
•
DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
•
Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can
damage the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected
to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained
and working properly.
IMPOR TANT
Ensure that your water supply line connections comply with
all local plumbing codes.
Before Installing The Water Supply Line, You Will Need
•
•
•
•
•
Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade screwdriver,
and PhillipsTM screwdriver
Access to a household cold water line with water pressure
between 30 and 100 psi.
A water supply line made of ¼ inch (6.4 mm) OD, copper
tubing. To determine the length of copper tubing needed,
you will need to measure the distance from the ice maker
inlet valve at the back of the beverage center to your cold
water pipe. Then add approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters), so
the beverage center can be moved out for cleaning (as
shown).
A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your
household water system. DO NOT use a self-piercing type
shutoff valve.
A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for connecting the
water supply line to the ice maker inlet valve.
NOTE
IMPOR TANT

appliance dealer at additional cost, contains 25 feet (7.6
meters) of ¼ inch OD copper tubing, a saddle type shutoff
valve (nonpiercing), (2) ¼ inch brass compression nuts, (2)
ferrules/sleeves, and instructions for installing a water supply
line.
It takes approximately 24 hours for the ice maker to begin
producing ice. Air in new plumbing lines may cause ice
maker to cycle two or three times before making a full tray of
ice. New plumbing may cause ice to be discolored or have
poor flavor. Discard ice made during the first 24 hours.

BEVERAGE CENTER CONTROLS
Temperature Control (some models)
Temperature Control
This rotary control is the primary control for the refrigerated
compartment temperature. If the beverage center is too warm,
adjust this control in the “Colder” direction. If the beverage
center is too cold, adjust this control in the “Cold” direction.
Air Flow Control
Air Flow Control (some models)
This rotary control is the primary control for the freezer
compartment temperature. If the freezer is too warm, adjust this
control in the “Colder” direction. If the freezer is too cold, adjust
this control in the “Cold” direction.
To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates air in the beverage
center compartments. For good circulation, do not block cold
air vents with food items.
IMPOR TANT
TEMPERATURE SETTING AND ADJUSTMENT
For beer storage, the recommended initial setting is 5. Under
most conditions, this setting will provide for dispensed beer
between 34-38° F. You may adjust as required to suit your
individual taste and the beverage center operating conditions.
After a control adjustment, always allow 24 hours for the
beer to stabilize at the new temperature before making
additional adjustments.
Turning the beverage center temperature control to “0” turns
off the compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the
light bulb and other electrical components. To turn off power
to your beverage center, you must unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet.
NOTE
When purchasing a beer keg, always purchase a keg cold (<38°F), transport as quickly as possible, and get it installed in the
cold beverage center within 2 hours. Under most conditions, these guidelines will allow serving of properly cooled beer within
24 hours. Purchasing a keg at a temperature above 38°F, and/or exposure to elevated temperatures longer than 2 hours will
require additional time for the beer to be cooled to optimum serving temperature.

the faucet. Do not let the glass touch the faucet. Open the
faucet all the way.
After the glass has reached half full, gradually bring the
glass to an upright position.
Let the remaining beverage run straight down the middle.
This insures proper release of CO2 by producing a ¾” to a
1" foam head.
Close the faucet completely and quickly.
NOTE
It is normal to see condensation forming around the faucet.
This condensation is caused by the temperature difference
between the cold beverage and the inner surfaces of the
faucet when beverage is being drawn through the line.
HOW TO REPLACE AN EMPTY CO2 CANISTER
•
•
•
Left Hand Swing
•
•
•
•

produced during the first 24 hours of operation. Automatic ice
makers are also optional accessories that may be installed in
most models at any time. Call your local dealer for information.
ICE MAKER TIPS
•
•
The ice maker produces 2 to 5 pounds of ice every 24 hours
depending on usage conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of 8
cubes every 80 to 160 minutes.
•
TURNING YOUR ICE MAKER ON
•
After the plumbing connections have been completed, the
water supply valve must be opened. Place the ice container
under the ice maker, pushing it as far back as possible. Lower
the wire signal arm to its “down” or ON position. New plumbing
connections may cause the first production of ice cubes to be
discolored or have an odd flavor. These first cubes should be
discarded until the cubes produced are free of discoloration
and odd flavor.
•
NOTE
The following sounds are normal when the ice maker is
operating:
•
Motor running
•
Ice loosening from tray
•
Ice dropping into ice container
•
Running water
•
Water valve opening or closing
Wash the ice container in warm water with mild detergent.
Rinse well and dry.
CAUTION
For more information on these operations, see Normal
Operating Sounds and Sights section.
DO NOT place the ice container in your dishwasher.
•
TURNING YOUR ICE
MAKER OFF
To stop the ice maker, lift the
wire signal arm until it clicks
and locks in the “up” or OFF
position. The ice maker also
turns off automatically when
the ice container is full. If your
model has an adjustable
freezer shelf, place the shelf in
the lower position, so that the
wire signal arm will hit the ice
when the container is full.
Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavor.
Empty the ice container and ensure that the wire signal
arm is in its “down” or ON position. The ice maker will then
produce more ice.
Occasionally shake the ice container to keep ice
separated.
Keep the wire signal arm in its “up” or OFF position until
the beverage center is connected to the water supply or
whenever the water supply is turned off.
•
Ice
Maker
IMPOR TANT
Your ice maker is shipped with the wire signal arm in the ON
position. To ensure proper function of your ice maker, hook
up water supply immediately or turn ice maker OFF by lifting
the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in the UP position.
CAUTION
Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage
the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected to soft water,
ensure that the softener is maintained and working
properly.
14
Stop the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during
vacations.
If the ice maker will be turned off for a long period of time,
turn the water supply valve to the closed position.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
•
•
•
Install the beverage center in the coolest part of the room, out of direct sunlight and away from
heating ducts or registers. Do not place the beverage center next to heat-producing appliances such
as a range, oven, or dishwasher.
Do not overcrowd the beverage center or block cold air vents. Doing so causes the beverage center to
run longer and use more energy. Shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper
toweling. Liners interfere with air circulation, making the beverage center less efficient.
Organize the beverage center to reduce door openings. Remove as many items as needed at one
time and close the door as soon as possible.

•
•
•
Remove all food and ice if you will be gone one month or more.
Turn controls to "O" ( the OFF position) and disconnect power.
Turn off automatic ice maker and turn water supply valve to closed position. (Some
models)
Clean interior thoroughly.
Leave both doors open to prevent odors and mold build-up. Block doors open if
necessary.
Remove all food and ice.
NEVER MOVE BEVERAGE CENTER WITH KEG INSIDE.
If using handcart, load from side.
Adjust leveling legs all the way up to protect floor surface during sliding or moving.

NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS & SIGHTS
A. Evaporator
UNDERSTANDING THE SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR
The flow of refrigerant through the evaporator may
create a boiling or gurgling sound.
Your new high-efficiency beverage center may make
unfamiliar sounds. These are all normal sounds and soon will
become familiar to you. They also indicate your beverage
center is operating as designed. Hard surfaces, such as vinyl
or wood floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make sounds
more noticeable. Listed below are descriptions of some of the
most common sounds you may hear, and what is causing
them.
B. Evaporator Fan
You may hear air being forced through the beverage
center by the evaporator fan.
C. Defrost Heater
During defrost cycles, water dripping onto the defrost
heater may cause a hissing or sizzling sound. After
defrosting, a popping sound may occur.
NOTE
Rigid foam insulation is very energy efficient, but is not a
sound insulator.
IMPOR
TANT
IMPORT
During the automatic defrost cycle, you may notice a red
glow in the vents on the back wall of your freezer
compartment. This is normal during the defrost cycle.
D. Automatic Ice Maker
If your beverage center is equipped with an automatic ice
maker, you will hear ice cubes falling into the ice bin.
E. Cold Control & Defrost Timer or Automatic
Defrost Control
These parts can produce a snapping or clicking sound
when turning the beverage center on and off. The timer
also produces sounds similar to an electric clock.
F. Condenser Fan
If condenser coils are located underneath your beverage
center as shown in the drawing at the left, you have a
condenser fan. You may hear air being forced through the
condenser by the condenser fan.
G. Compressor
Modern, high-efficiency compressors operate much
faster than older models. The compressor may have a
high-pitched hum or pulsating sound.
H. Water Valve
If your beverage center is equipped with an automatic ice
maker, you will hear a buzzing sound as the water valve
opens to fill the ice maker during each cycle.
I. Drain Pan (Nonremovable)
You may hear water running into the drain pan during
the defrost cycle. The drain pan is located on top of the
compressor for air-cooled condensers (black coils
on back of beverage center).
J. Condenser Coils (Fan-cooled models only)
May create minimal sounds from forced air.
16
CARE & CLEANING
Keep your beverage center clean to prevent odor build-up. Wipe up any spills immediately and clean both sections at least twice
a year. Never use any type of scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not
wash any removable parts in a dishwasher. Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.
CAUTION
•
•
•
When moving the beverage center, pull straight out. Do not shift the beverage center from side to side as this may
tear or gouge the floor covering. If the beverage center has an automatic ice maker, be careful not to move the
beverage center beyond the plumbing connections. DO NOT MOVE THE BEVERAGE CENTER WITH A KEG INSIDE.
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch refrigerated surfaces with wet or damp hands.
Never use CHLORIDE to clean stainless steel.
NOTE
•
•
Turning the beverage center temperature control to “0” turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect electrical power to
the light bulb or other electrical components. To turn off power to your beverage center, you must unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the appliance surface when removing adhesive
labels. Any glue left from tape or labels can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, or, touch the glue
residue with the sticky side of tape you have already removed. Do not remove the serial plate.
