This manual covers the Sno-King Ice Shaver Machine, model number 1888.
Installation Instructions
Inspection of Shipment:
Unpack all cartons and check thoroughly for any damage that may have occurred during transit.
Damage claims should be filed immediately with the transportation company. Gold Medal is not
responsible for damage that occurs in transit.
Setup:
Your new Sno-King Ice Shaver Machine is completely assembled and tested at the factory.
Remove all packing material and tape before starting operation.
Electrical Requirements:
The following power supply must be provided:
Model No. 1888:
120 VAC, 60 Hz. 972 Watts 8.1 Amps
.
Your electrician must furnish sufficient current for proper machine operation. We recommend this ice
shaver machine be on a dedicated and circuit protected line. Failure to wire properly will void the
warranty and can result in damage to the heat elements, light, motor and etc.
It is Gold Medal Products Company’s recommendation that this machine be plugged directly into a
wall outlet. The use of extension cords is not recommended due to safety risks and the popper’s
performance will be sacrificed/reduced.
Before You Plug In Machine:
1. Make sure that the wall outlet can accept the three (3) prong grounded plug on the power supply
cord.
2. The wall outlet must have the proper polarity. If in doubt, have a competent electrician inspect the
outlet and correct if necessary.
3. DO NOT use a three (3) prong grounded to two (2) prong un-grounded adapter.

Machine Operation
Ice Requirements
The Shave-Pro can take ice cubes small or medium in size if you break the block into pieces
approximately 2 to 3 inches in size.
NOTE: The ice will not enter the shaving chute if the pieces are too large.

Raise hopper lid.
Fill hopper with Ice.
Close lid.
Press momentary switch to shave.
NOTE:
Never allow any foreign or metallic objects around the shaver area of the Sno-Pro. Ice picks,
scoops, and debris that may be in the ice often damage blades.
Harder ice will result in finer snow, while soft ice will result in coarser snow.

Installing New Shaving Blades
Inspect your equipment before replacing the blades. With the POWER switch OFF, use a flashlight to
examine the blades in the shaver body. If the blades appear to be nicked or bent, then the blades
should be replaced.
Follow this procedure:
1. Unplug the main power supply cord from the electrical outlet.
2. Remove the shaver head from the motor shaft by loosening the Allen head set screws
between the motor and the hopper.
3. Remove the shaver head. Pull the shaver head off of the motor shaft and through the
hopper. If the shaver head is frozen onto the shaft, remove the hold down bolts on the
motor. Pull the motor back, trapping the shaver head against the inside of the hopper,
until the shaver head disengages.
4. After removing the shaver head, check the motor shaft for burrs and corrosion. Use a fine
tooth file to remove the burrs and corrosion.
5. Remove the blades from the shaver head. These blades may be re-sharpened, but it is
far better to replace the old blades with a new set.
6. Position the new blades and insert screws until they are finger tight.
7. Set the blade thickness equal to a dime. (See illustration below.) Make sure that the
height is even across the shaver head.
8. Tighten the blade screws completely. Check the blades again with a dime to ensure the
blades did not move while tightening the screws.
9. Replace the motor and shaver head. Mount the motor using the hold down bolts. Insert
the shaver head through the hopper and onto the motor shaft. Press the shaver head
onto the motor shaft with the pusher handle, then move the shaver head in another 1/8".
Check that the shaver head is not rubbing against the back of the hopper and the blades
are not touching the pusher handle.
10. Replace the set screws between the hopper and the motor.
NOTE: Replace any shims that were between the motor base and the mounting surface.
