All ice makers require a connection to the
water supply and improper hook-up can result
in substantial property damage! All water
and drain connections MUST BE made by a
licensed/qualified plumbing contractor. Failure
to follow recommendations and instructions
may result in damage and/or harm.
• Drain lines must have a 1 inch drop per 48
inches of run (1/4 inch per foot) and must not
create traps.
• The floor drain must be large enough to
accommodate drainage from all drains.
• Insulate the bin drain line to prevent
condensation.
CAUTION
Plumbing installation must observe all
state and local codes. All water and drain
connections MUST BE made by a licensed/
qualified plumbing contractor. Failure to follow
recommendations and instructions may result
in damage and/or harm.
Model EI15IM55GS can be installed using a gravity
drain or the Electrolux EIMP60, optional drain
pump kit.
Follow these guidelines when installing drain lines
to prevent water from flowing back into the ice
maker storage bin and/or potentially flowing onto
the floor causing water damage:
Gravity Drain
• Drain lines must have a 5/8 inch inside
diameter.

Installation
Connecting a Drain Pump
If a gravity drain connection is not available, we
strongly recommend the use of the Electrolux
EIMP60 drain pump. The Electrolux EIMP60
drain pump is available through your Dealer, or
direct from Electrolux with complete installation
instructions. If a pump other than the Electrolux
EIMP60 drain pump is to be used, it must meet the
following specifications:
• It must be UL listed and have a UL listed,
120 VAC, 3-wire grounded power cord.
• It must have overall maximum outside
dimensions of 8-3/4” wide x 5-3/4” deep x
7-3/4” high.
• It must have a minimum flow rate of 15
gallons per hour at 10 feet of lift.
• It must have a sealed sump which does not
allow water leakage in the case of a power
outage, restricted drain or pump failure.
• It must have a check valve in the discharge
line to prevent waste water return to the
pump.
• It must have an overflow protection control
which will shut off power to the ice maker in
the event of a pump failure.
• It must have an operating temperature range
of 50°F to 110°F (10°C to 43°C).
CAUTION
In the event of a power outage, restricted drain
or pump failure, the failure to use the
Electrolux EIMP60 drain pump or a pump with
the above listed specifications, could result
in substantial water leakage and pooling with
severe and costly water damage and related
consequential damages and harm.
Site Preparation
Preparing the Site
IMPORTANT
It is extremely important that the unit is level. If it
is not level, the ice mold will not fill evenly. This
can cause a reduction in ice rate, uneven sized
cubes or water spilling into the storage area
which will cause the ice in the bin to melt prematurely. Remember that floors near drains have
a tendency to slope towards the drain.
1 Position the unit on a flat, level surface,
capable of supporting the entire weight of
the unit. Remember that the unit will be
significantly heavier once it is fully loaded.
7 The unit must be installed according to your
local codes and ordinances.
NOTE
The door of the unit may be mounted on either
side of the cabinet (see REVERSING THE
DOOR). All units require zero clearance when
installed flush with a cabinet or wall (see Figure
2). Electrolux stainless steel models require
a minimum 2-3/4 inch handle clearance when
installed against a wall or cabinet that extends
beyond the front edge of the unit (see Figure 3).
2 The surrounding air temperature must be at
least 50°F (10°C) but must not exceed 110°F
(43°C).

the front grille (see Figure 4).
9 Wipe out inside of unit with a damp cloth.
5 Connect the unit to a grounded and polarized
115 VAC, 60 Hz, 15 A circuit (normal
household current).
6 Avoid connecting the unit to a Ground
Fault Interruptor (GFI). GFIs are prone to
nuisance tripping which will cause the unit to
shut down. GFIs are generally not used on
circuits which power equipment that must run
unattended for long periods of time.

Water Supply Connection
Connecting the Water Supply
When connecting the water supply, follow these
guidelines:
•
Review the local plumbing codes before you
install the unit.
• The water pressure should be between 30
and 120 psi.
After completing the installation, turn on
the water and recheck water and drain
connection for leaks. Apply additional
tightening if needed. Do NOT use thread
sealing compound or tape.
4 Plug in the power cord.
CAUTION
If you are using a filter system you will need
to have at least 20 psi for 3 minutes every 15
minutes.
•
CAUTION
Make certain a SHUT-OFF VALVE is installed
in the 1/4 inch water supply line.
5 Gently push the unit into position. If desired
the unit may be recessed into cabinet or wall.
6 Allow at least 1-1/2 inches clearance behind
the unit for electrical, water supply and drain
connections.
• Connect sufficient tubing to the unit to
allow the unit to be moved for cleaning and
servicing. However, make certain that the
tubing is not pinched or damaged during
installation.
• Electrolux recommends the use of copper
tubing for installation. Do not use plastic
water supply line since it may crack or
rupture with age and may cause water
damage to your house.

Door Adjustment
Adjusting the Door
Your door is aligned at the factory before shipment.
Occasional re-adjustment may be necessary,
especially if an overlay panel is installed. The
following procedure will correct for up to 1/4”
alignment.
The door should never be flush with the top of the
cabinet. Even when level, the top edge of the door
will be 1/8” below the top of the cabinet (see Figure
20).
4 If door edge opposite the hinges needs to
move up, move plate toward outside of door.
If door edge needs to move down, move
plate toward inside of door (see Figure 22).

Built-In Installation / Start-Up
Installing a Built-In
Your Electrolux product has been designed for
either free-standing or built-in installation. When
built-in, your ice maker does not require additional
air space for top, sides or rear. However, the front
grille must NOT be obstructed.
To ease unit installation and removal, the unit
must be located to allow clearance for water,
drain and electrical connections in the rear of the
ice maker.

Initial Start-Up
Once installation and leveling is complete, the unit
is ready for initial start-up and operation. All units
are shipped with controls that are preset. No initial
adjustments are required.
IMPORTANT
It is possible that dirt or scale will dislodge in the
water line. Always throw away all ice cubes made
during the first two to three hours of operation.
Plug into a 115 volt polarized and grounded
electrical outlet.
Normal Operating Sounds
All models incorporate rigid foam insulated
cabinets to provide high thermal efficiency and
maximum sound reduction for it’s internal working
components. In spite of this technology, your model
may make sounds that are unfamiliar.
Normal operating sounds may be more noticeable
because of the unit’s environment. Hard surfaces
such as cabinets, wood/vinyl/tiled floors and
paneled walls have a tendency to reflect normal
operating noises.
Common refrigeration components and a brief
description of the normal operating sounds they
make are listed below. NOTE: Your unit may not
contain all the components listed.
• Compressor: The compressor makes a hum
or pulsing sound that may be heard when it
operates
• Evaporator: Refrigerant flowing through an
evaporator may sound like boiling liquid.
Open the water supply valve at the main water
source.
• Condenser Fan: Air moving through a
condenser may be heard.
To turn the unit on or off, touch and hold
the POWER button on the display panel for
approximately five seconds, then release.
• Automatic Ice Maker: You will hear ice as it
drops from the mold into the ice bin/tray.
• A small LED above the icon will illuminate to
confirm the touch of any controller icon.
• The electronic display will show “ICE” when
the unit is on, and “OFF” when the unit is off.
• Turning the unit off will override any other
control function.
• Water Valve: The water valve will make an
occasional buzzing sound and running water
will be heard.
13

Operation
Normal Operation
The ice maker is designed to make clear ice
from most water sources on a consistent basis.
Water is constantly circulated over the evaporator
assembly. As the water freezes, gravity causes
any sediment to drop into the water trough and not
become imbedded in the ice. This gives a clearer
ice cube with a low mineral content. When the
ice reaches the desired thickness, it falls off the
evaporator and into the storage bin. The cycle is
then repeated. When the level of ice reaches the
top of the storage bin the unit shuts off. As the ice
level in the bin drops the unit will automatically
restart to keep the bin full. Your unit’s ice production
rate may vary depending on many considerations.
Ambient air temperatures, water temperatures,
condenser cleanliness and ice-maker cleanliness
are all contributing factors to how quickly the unit
produces ice. Certain sounds are normal during
the unit’s operation. You may hear the compressor
or fan motor, the water valve, the water circulation
pump or ice dropping into the ice storage bin.
• Cube “slabbing”: Electrolux clear ice
makers produce a “slab” of ice that falls from
the vertical mold, relying on gravity to break
the ice bridges. Depending on the control
setting, and the fullness of the ice bucket, it
maybe necessary to tap the ice slab with the
ice scoop to break it apart.
Ice Dispenser Operation & Care
The ice cube thickness control is factory set for
best overall performance. The factory setting is
designed to maintain an ice bridge of approximately
1/16” to 1/8” under normal conditions resulting in a
dimple of approximately 1/4” to 1/2” in depth (see
Figure 26a and 26b). A fuller cube with less of a
dimple results in a thicker ice bridge. As the ice
bridge becomes thicker, the tendency for the cubes
to stay together as a slab increases. A bridge
thicker than 1/8” may cause cubes to over-fill the
ice bucket.
1/16" TO 1/8"
ICE BRIDGE
1/4" TO 1/2"
DIMPLE
Ice Cube Thickness
Your Electrolux ice maker uses advanced
technology to make ice that is crystal clear. This
technology cascades a flow of water over a chilled
ice mold that is mounted vertically so no water sits
in it. Because of this ice making technology, clear
ice cubes differ significantly from regular ice cubes.
Differences are illustrated in Figure 25.

Maintenance
Special Considerations
• For best performance, keep the unit out of
direct sunlight.
• Turn the unit OFF and dispose of any ice
cubes if the unit will not be used for 5 days
or more. Prop door open to allow for air
circulation and prevent mold and mildew.
• If the ambient temperature is expected to
drop below 45°F (7°C), drain all water from
the unit to prevent freezing damage not
covered by the warranty.
• High ambient temperatures, 110°F (43°C) or
higher, may reduce the unit’s ability to reach
low temperatures and may also reduce the
ice production rate.
Maintaining and Cleaning
Your Icemaker
Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will
ensure efficiency, top performance, and long
life. The maintenance intervals listed are based
on normal conditions. You may want to shorten
the intervals if you have pets or other special
considerations.
Exterior Cleaning - As Required
The door, grille and cabinet may be cleaned with a
mild detergent and warm water solution. Do not use
solvent based or abrasive cleaners.
Use a soft sponge and rinse with clean water. Wipe
with a soft, clean towel to prevent water spotting.
Stainless Steel Models
• Stainless steel models may discolor when
exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, salt
water or cleaners with bleach.
• Keep your stainless unit looking new by
cleaning with a high quality, all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner/polish on a monthly
basis. Frequent cleaning will remove surface
contamination that could lead to rust. Some
installations will require cleaning on a weekly
basis.
• DO NOT CLEAN WITH STEEL WOOL PADS.
• DO NOT USE CLEANERS THAT ARE
NOT SPECIFICALLY INTENDED FOR
STAINLESS STEEL (this includes glass, tile
and counter cleansers).
• If any surface discolors or rusting appears,
clean it quickly with Bon-Ami or Barkeepers
Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive cloth.
Always clean in the direction of the grain.
Always finish this process with a high quality,
all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/polish to
prevent further problems.
• USE OF ABRASIVE PADS SUCH AS
SCOTCHBRITE WILL CAUSE THE
GRAINING IN THE STAINLESS TO
BECOME BLURRED.
• Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate
into the surface of the stainless steel and
become impossible to remove.
CAUTION
Stainless steel models exposed to
chlorine gas and moisture, such as areas
with spas or swimming pools, may have
some discoloration of the stainless steel.
Discoloration from chlorine gas is normal.
Follow exterior cleaning instructions.
Interior Cleaning - As Required
1 Disconnect power to the ice maker.
2 Open the door and remove any ice from the
storage bin.
3 Wipe down the interior and storage bin with
a solution of non-abrasive mild soap or
detergent and warm water. Rinse with clean
water.
4 Sanitize the bin with a solution of 1
tablespoon of bleach in 1 gallon of warm
water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
5 Check that all drain connections are in place.
CAUTION
• DO NOT use solvent cleaning agents or
abrasives on the interior. These cleansers
may transmit taste to the ice cubes, or
damage or discolor the interior.
• DO NOT use any cleaner on the evaporator
plate other than Ice Machine Cleaner.
Other cleaners may affect ice quality,
or cause damage to the unit that
is not covered under warranty. See
AUTOMATIC CLEAN CYCLE for more
information.

2 Remove the grille.
Figure 29
Wear rubber gloves and safety goggles and/
or face shield when handling Ice Machine
Cleaner.
CAUTION
Use only Electrolux Ice Machine Cleaner (part
number EIM30046).
It is a violation of Federal law to use this
solution in a manner inconsistent with its
labeling. Use of any other cleaner can ruin
the finish of the evaporator and will void the
warranty.
Read and understand all labels printed on the
package before use.
Ice machine cleaner is used to remove lime scale
and other mineral deposits. Refer to the following
steps for mineral deposit removal.
CAUTION
WARNING
DO NOT touch the condenser fins. The
condenser fins are SHARP. The fins can also
be easily damaged.
CAUTION
DO NOT use any type of cleaner on the
condenser unit.
3 Clean the condenser coil using a brush with
a “combing” action, or a vacuum cleaner. Do
not touch the condenser coil.
4 Clean the grille, then position the grille to
align the screw holes with the cabinet.
5 Insert the grille screws and tighten. Do not
over tighten.
Never use anything to force ice from the
evaporator. Damage may result.
1 Turn the ice maker off (allowing any ice to
melt off of the evaporator) as follows:
a Touch and hold the POWER button.
b The display will switch from ICE to OFF to confirm that the ice maker is off. (See Figure 30.)

Maintenance
2 Remove all ice from the storage bin.
8 Reinstall inside front cover.
3. Remove inside front cover. (See figure 31.)
9 When the self-cleaning process stops
(approximately 45 minutes) the unit will
remain off for an additional 15 minutes. When
the clean cycle is completed, the display will
automatically switch back to set temperature
and unit will run as normal operation.
10 Clean the storage bin. (See INTERIOR
CLEANING). Sanatize the bin with a solution
of 1 tablespoon of bleach and 1 gallon of
warm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean
water.
FRONT
COVER
11 To ensure the drain system is working
properly, pour 1 gallon of cool, fresh water
into the ice bin. The water should drain freely.
If the unit is equipped with a drain pump, it
should drain the ice bin.
Figure 31
4. Remove Remove the overflow tube by lifting
it while using a slight back and forth motion
to loosen it from the drain hole. The water in
the reservoir will flow down the drain. (See
figure 32.)
When ice production resumes, the water fill valve
will energize, fill the water reservoir, and shutoff after three minutes. The compressor begins
to operate and water flows over the evaporator
assembly (ice cube tray). Initially, the water flow
may not be uniform, causing uneven sized cubes
or water to spill into the ice storage bin. This is a
normal situation that will correct itself within the first
24 hours of operation.
IMPORTANT
• Discard all ice produced in the first harvest.
OVERFLOW
• If power gets interrupted during the selfclean cycle, it will be necessary to repeat
the complete cleaning cycle after power is
restored.

5 Replace the overflow tube after all of the
water has drained from the reservoir.
6 Start the cleaning cycle as follows:
a Touch and hold the POWER button.
b Touch and release the LIGHT button three times, then release the POWER button.
c The display will show “CL” to confirm the beginning of the cleaning cycle.
7 When water begins to flow over the
evaporator (approximately 3 minutes), add
one package of Electrolux Ice Machine
Cleaner to the water reservoir.
Maintenance / Storage, Vacation and Moving
Inlet Screen Cleaning — Every Year
The solenoid valve inlet screen must be cleaned at
least once each year as follows:
1 Shut off the water at the water supply valve.
2 Pull the unit out to access the back panel.
3 Disconnect electrical power to the unit.
4 Disconnect the entire hose connector from
the water solenoid valve (see Figure 33).
5 Use a tooth brush to clean sediment from the
inlet screen. DO NOT remove the screen.
6 Re-connect the water supply line to the water
solenoid valve. Tighten connector securely.
Open the water supply valve and check for
leakage at the water connection. Make sure
the water supply line is not kinked.
7 Reconnect power to the unit before reinstalling.
8 Make sure the drain system is working
properly and the drain hose is not pinched or
kinked. Pour one gallon of cool, fresh water
into the ice bin. The water should drain freely.
If your ice maker is equipped with a drain
pump, the pump should drain the ice bin.
Draining for non-use
If the unit is to be stored, moved or not used for
extended periods, it will be necessary to drain the
system of water.
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard. Disconnect power
before servicing. Before operating replace all
panels. Failure to do so can result in death or
electrical shock.
1 Disconnect power from the unit.
2 Remove ice from the storage bin.
3 Shut off water supply at the main water
source.
NOTE
Back panel must be removed prior to
disconnecting the water lines.
4 Disconnect the inlet and outlet lines to the
water valve and allow them to drain.
