FOR THE INSTALLER: Location & Assembly
Location:
After uncrating and inspection, the unit is ready for
installation. It is important that the machine be
installed in a location where it has enough space
around it to be accessible for service. A minimum
of 6" must be allowed at the back for air circulation
on air cooled models. Try to avoid hot, dirty and
crowded locations. Be sure that the location for the
machine is within the envrionmental limitations.
ICE MACHINE AND BIN ASSEMBLY
Storage Bin:
Tip the storage bin on its back, using parts of the
carton to protect the exterior finish. Install the legs,
use a heavy duty leg kit if stacking two ice
machines on one bin.
1. Arrange for proper electric, water and drain.
See instructions for the plumber and for the
electrician.
2. After mounting the legs, position the ice storage
bin in the selected location:
Note: Allow enough space to the left and back to
service the machine. Do NOT push the bin into
postion, instead, lift it there. Pushing a bin may
damage the legs and leg mounts.
Level the bin in both the front to rear and side to
side directions by adjusting the leg levelers.
Select a well ventilated location for air cooled
models.
Note: Air cooled models blow air from front to back.
3. Inspect the bin top mounting gasket which
should be flat, with no wrinkles, to provide a good
water seal when the cuber is installed on top of the
bin.
Ice Maker:
Install the modular cuber on top of the bin using
care to be sure a good seal is made between the
two cabinets. Use of a mechancial lift is
recommended. Align the holes in the bottom rear
of the cabinet to mate with the two mounting holes
on the top rear of the bin.
Use bolts and straps found on the back of the
icemaker to secure the ice machine to the bin.
When alignment and leveling are completed,
tighten the bolts to secure the mounting straps.
Remove the front panel, and remove the
evaporator shipping brackets and hardware.

When stacking two units, remove the top panel
and the evaporator cover from the lower icemaker.
(The top removed from the lower icemaker will no
longer have any function.)
Carefully lift the uncrated top unit onto the bottom
one and align the two cabinets. Use of a
mechanical lift is recommended for this step.
At the back of the two icemakers, bolt the upper
icemaker cabinet to the lower icemaker cabinet
using the mounting straps and bolts from the
hardware package.
A stacking kit is required to interconnect the CMS
ice level controls.
A different stacking kit is required to stack a CMS
machine onto a CM model.

FOR THE ELECTRICIAN
SEE NAMEPLATE for current requirements to
determine wire size to be used for electrical
hookup. The cuber requires a solid chassis to
chassis earth ground wire. See Wiring Diagram.
Be certain the cuber is connected to its own
electrical circuit and individually fused. Voltage
variation should not exceed ten percent of the
nameplate rating, even under starting conditions.
Low voltages can cause erratic operation and
may be responsible for serious damage to the
icemaker.
Electrical connections are made at the rear of
the icemaker, inside the junction box.
All external wiring should conform to the
national, state and local electrical code
requirements. Usually an electrical permit and
services of a licensed electrician will be
required.

FOR THE PLUMBER
FOLLOW ALL LOCAL CODES:
DRAIN
The recommended water supply line is a 3/8-inch
O.D. copper tubing with a minimum operating
pressure of 20 PSIG and a maximum of 80 PSIG.
Connections: All drains are gravity type and must
have a minimum of 1/4-inch fall per foot on
horizontal runs. The drains to be installed to
conform with the local plumbing code. Install a
vertical open vent on drain line high point to insure
good draining. The ideal drain receptacle is a
trapped and vented floor drain. Recommended bin
drain is 5/8 inch O.D. copper tubing and should be
vented and run separately. Insulation for high
humidity areas is recommended.
Connect to cold water supply line with standard
plumbing fittings, with shut off valve installed in an
accessible place between thewater supply and the
cuber. ln some cases a plumber will be required.
Water Limitations:
An ice machine is a food manufacturing plant, it
takes in a raw material, water, and turns it inot a
food product, ice. The purity of the water is very
important in obtaining pure ice and in maximizing
product life. It is generally better to filter the water,
although there is no one filter that will cure all
water problems. A good filter combined with a
polyphosphate feeder gives about the best overall
performance.
Terminate drains above the drain receptacle with
the proper air gap per local code.
The ice machine sump drain is 3/4" FPT. There
must be a vent at this connection for proper sump
drainage.
WATER COOLED MODELS: On water cooled
models, a separate cold water supply inlet is
required, to be connected to a 3/8-inch female
pipe thread (FPT) fitting at the rear of the cabinet.
An additional drain line is required to drain the
water cooled condenser, and must not
interconnect to any other of the unit’s drains.

7. Move the ICE-OFF-WASH rocker switch to the
ICE position.
8. Check the water fill cycle: For several minutes
the inlet water valve will be open and water will
flow into the reservoir. Near the end of the fill
cycle, water should be overflowing the reservoir
and draining thru the reservoir drain. If at the end
of the fill cycle the reservoir is not full, repeat step
6.
FREEZE
PORTION
Check that the sump covers are snapped in place.
Check that the water distributors are properly
seated at the top of the evaporators, and that
water is flowing over all cube cells.
CONTROL BOX
Note: Some water spray from the evaporators is
normal when the machine is new. The spray will
quit after a few cycles.
9. When the sump has filled, move the compressor
ON-OFF toggle switch, to the ON position.
10. On air cooled models the fan motors will begin
to blow warm air out the back of the machine.
Water cooled models will begin to flow warm water
out of the condenser drain.
CUBE SIZE
CONTROL
Note: To optimize the balance between ice
production and water use, the freeze cycle
discharge pressure must be 220 P.S.I.G. Check
discharge pressure and adjust the water regulating
valve to obtain 220 P.S.I.G. discharge pressure.
11. Check operation of the freezing cycle: Ice will
begin to form from the top of the evaporators
down. After the first cycle freezing time will range
between 15 and 18 minutes. Freeze cycle time is
longer for temperatures above 70oF. and shorter
when temperatures are below 70oF. Average
complete cycle time is about 19 minutes.

INITIAL START UP
12. After an ice harvest check Cube Size. There
is just enough water in the reservoir to make one
full sized batch of cubes. The water pump may
pick up some air at the end of the freezing cycle
and then bubbles in the pump discharge hose are
normal. If the water pump quits pumping water, the
cube size control may be set too cold, or the water
system may be leaking water.
Compare cube size to the "Cube Size Diagram".
To adjust cube size, locate the cube size control in
the front of the control box, and rotate the
adjustment screw one eighth of a turn
COUNTER Clockwise to produce SMALLER sized
ice cubes
Clockwise to produce LARGER ice cubes
Check the size of ice cubes in the next cube
harvest and repeat the adjustment until the correct
ice cube size is achieved.
CUBE SIZE DIAGRAM
JUST RIGHT
When the cubes are the correct size, they will be
connected together vertically, and drop off in strips.
The batch weight will be about 13.5 to 14.5 lb.
Note: If the cubes at the bottom rows of some evaporators
are smaller than others. the size difference does not affect
capacity or performance. However, there should be some
ice in all cells. If not, contact the Factory.
TOO SMALL
13. Check Harvest Time. There must be enough
time in harvest to defrost all the cubes, but not an
excessive amount that will waste capacity. The
length of the harvest cycle is determined by the
timer cam positions.
If needed, adjust the harvest time so that there are
about 15 seconds of harvest time left after the last
cube has fallen off the evaporators.
MICROSWITCH
CLOSE UP
VIEW OF TIMER
SWITCH
ACTUATOR
Because harvest time varies with the water and air
temperatures at the ice machine, colder air and
water will result in faster ice making, but longer
harvest cycles. Do not adjust harvest time too
short or the unit will not harvest all the ice.
CAM
The harvest time is set by: loosening the set screw
on the cam, rotating the shaft so that the opening
between the cams increases or decreases,
retightening the set screw when the cams are in
the desired position. More of an opening between
the cams = more harvest time.
An adjustment of the cube size control may be
needed after the harvest time has be changed.
Check cube size again.
14. Check Bin Ice Level Control: With the
icemaker in a harvest cycle, place something flat &
solid directly below the sensor socket (located
near the center back of the base). The machine
will then switch OFF at the end of the harvest
cycle. Within seconds after removal of the
obstruction the icemaker will restart.
The control has two postions, FULL and PARTIAL.
Full shuts the machine off when ice is 8" from the
bottom of the sensor socket. The control will not
work on bins taller than 8’.
15. Replace all covers, panels and screws.
16. Fill out and mail in the Warranty Registration
and Customer Response form. Explain to the
owner/user the operation and maintenance
requirements of the ice machine. Inform the owner
of the name and telephone number of the local
SCOTSMAN Distributor or service agency.

FREEZING CYCLE OPERATION
Water from the sump assembly is pumped to the
water distributor system at the top of each
evaporator plate. From the water distributor the
water cascades by gravity over all cells of the plate
and to the sump assembly below.
At the beginning of the freezing cycle, the electrical
circuit is completed to the compressor and the
water pump. The water pump operates
continuously, through both the freezing cycle and
the harvest cycle.
WATER DISTRIBUTION
INLET
WATER
VALVE
In water cooled models, water also flows through
the condenser and out the drain.
During the freezing cycle, the hot gas solenoid
valve and the water inlet solenoid valve are
CLOSED. When the ice cubes are partially
formed, the cube size control (sensing bulb
attached to the suction line) will CLOSE, and
connect power to the timer motor. The timer then
controls the remainder of the freezing cycle. The
timer will keep the icemaker operating in the
freezing cycle for a selected length of time. This
will give the ice cubes time to fully form. after
which, the timer will switch the icemaker into the
harvest cycle, through the contacts of the timer
assembly microswitch.

HARVEST CYCLE - HOT GAS BYPASS
When the timer switches the icemaker into the
harvest cycle, the finish relay is de-energized, and
the hot gas valve and inlet water valve OPEN.
Then high pressure, high temperature gas
refrigerant being discharged from the compressor
is diverted from the condenser through the hot gas
solenoid valve into each evaporator plate. During
this cycle, the refrigerant bypasses the condenser.
Both the compressor and the water pump are
operating.
The finished ice cubes are released from the sides
of each evaporator plate by the warming effect of
the hot gas condensing in each evaporator plate
and the water cascading over the ice cubes. The
released ice cubes drop into the ice storage bin
below. At the end of the harvest cycle, the timer
cam will push in the microswitch actuator arm. If
there is no ice close to the bin level control’s
transducer, a whole new cycle will begin. If there is
ice within 8" of the base of the machine (when the
bin level control is set for full) the icemaker will
shut OFF.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Cube Size Control
Timer - Timer & Switch Assembly
This reverse acting thermostat controls the length
of the freezing cycle. It is sensing the temperature
of the suction line. When the suction line gets cold
enough, the cube size control closes (on
temperature fall) and starts the timer. A change in
either ambient air or incoming water temperature
will affect the efficiency of the refrigeration system,
and this will vary the length of time it takes the
evaporator to reach the temperature at which the
cube size control is preset to close. See CUBE
SIZE ADJUSTMENT BEFORE attempting to
adJust the control.
The timer cam is controlled by the cube size
control. The outer surface, or large diameter lobe
of the timer cam, determines the timer cycle for
finish freezing of the ice cubes, while the inner
surface, or small diameter lobe, determines the
time cycle for the harvest cycle.
Relay
The multi-function, three pole, double throw,
plug-in relay is inserted into a receptacle on the
printed circuit board in the control box. The relay
functions in part to by-pass the bin thermostat
control to prevent the icemaker from shutting OFF,
when the bin thermostat opens during the freezing
cycle. The bypass action serves to ensure
full-sized ice cubes with each harvest cycle and,
to prevent short cycling on the bin thermostat
control.
When the microswitch button is pushed in there is
power connected to the coil of the relay, and the
unit is in the freeze cycle. When the microswitch
button is released, the power to the relay is
stopped, and the unit goes into harvest. The
microswitch is actuated by a cam assembly
directly connected to the timer motor.
One complete rotation of the cam will take eight
minutes. Harvest is preset at two and one fourth
minutes, but is adjustable.
High Pressure Safety Control
This is a manual reset control that shuts down the
icemaker, should the discharge pressure ever
reach 450 PSIG on air cooled and 350 PSIG on
water cooled. Found below the control box.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Bin Level Control
This electronic control uses sound waves to
measure the distance between the bottom of the
ice machine and the top of the ice in the bin. It is
designed to control the machine’s ice production to
maintain that distance.
Because it uses sound waves, a slight “ticking”
sound can be heard coming from the bottom of the
machine.
There are two parts to the control, the circuit
board, and the level control switch.
The control is adjustable so that the ice machine
will maintain a certain height of ice. When set at
FULL it will not allow the machine to fill the bin any
closer to the ice machine than about 8", and it will
not work if the distance to the bottom of the bin is
greater than 8 feet.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Water Inlet Solenoid Valve
Water Distribution System
The water inlet solenoid valve fills the sump
assembly with water. Extra water overflows out the
overflow standpipe of the sump. This action fills
and rinses the sump during each harvest cycle.
The flow rate is 1 g.p.m.
The water distribution system functions to evenly
supply water to all cells of the evaporator plates.
The water pump pumps water from the sump up
the vertical tygon tube to the tee. From there water
is channeled through the water manifold to the
water distributors, above each evaporator plate,
and from six holes within each distributor, water
flows to the cells of each side of the evaporator
plates. Gravity flow returns the unfrozen excess
portion of water to the sump reservoir for
recirculation.
Water Regulator Valve - Water Cooled Model
The water regulator valve maintains a constant
compressor head pressure, by regulating the
amount of inlet water flow through the condenser
on water cooled models. The valve operates
through the refrigerant system high side pressure.
Rotating the adjusting screw, located on top of the
valve, can INCREASE or DECREASE the water
flow through the water cooled condenser, which in
turn, will DECREASE or INCREASE the
compressor operating head pressure. lt is to be set
at 220 PSIG. When installing a replacement water
regulator valve, be sure the replacement valve is
installed with the arrow positioned in the direction
of the water flow.
Hot Gas Solenoid Valve
The hot gas solenoid valve opens only during the
harvest cycle, to divert the hot discharge gas from
the compressor, by passing the condenser and
capillary tube, for direct flow to the evaporator
plates to release ice cubes from the ice cube
molds.
Fan Pressure Control - Air-Cooled Models only.
ln both freeze and harvest
cycles, the fan pressure

3. Clean or replace the air filter.
4. Check to see that the inside of the condenser is
clean; light should be visible through the fins. If not
clean the internal parts by vacuum, pressure
washer and/or coil cleaner.
ICE STORAGE BIN
The interior liner of the bin is in contact with a food
product: ice. The storage bin must be cleaned
regularly to maintain a sanitary environment.
Once a week cleaning with soap and water, a hot
water rinse and an air dry is a basic procedure.
Scale that may form on the plastic liner can be
removed by scrubbing the surface with a mixture
of Scotsman Ice Machine Cleaner and hot water.
Remove any scale prior to sanitizing.
Note: Some ice storage bins have stainless steel
liners. They may become stained from chlorine
gases released from the water. These stains must
be removed by regular cleaning to prevent pitting
of the metal liner. To prevent the staining, an
activated charcoal water filter should be added to
the ice machine’s incoming water supply line;
activated charcoal removes the chlorine. This may
require more frequent sanitation.
Scotsman Ice Machine
Cleaner contains
acids. These
compounds may
cause burns.
If swallowed, DO NOT
induce vomiting. Give
large amounts of water
or milk. Call Physician
immediately. In case of
external contact, flush
with water.
KEEP OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.
To Remove Scale:
1. Mix a cleaning solution of 4 ounces of Scotsman
Ice Machine Cleaner to 4 pints of hot (950F. to
1100F.) water.
2. Using rubber gloves, dip a nylon scouring pad
into the cleaning solution, and scrub the scale off
of the liner.
3. After all the scale has been removed, rinse all of
the surfaces inside the bin with clean, potable
water.
To sanitize the bin and ice machine interior.
Use an approved sanitizer and follow the
directions and warnings of that sanitizer or use the
following instructions for use of household bleach,
if it meets local codes:
1. Mix a sanitizing solution of 1 ounce of
household bleach to 2 gallons of water.
2. Using clean rubber gloves and a clean cloth,
wipe all interior surfaces of the ice machine and
ice storage bin with the santizing solution.
Immerse any small parts in the sanitizing solution
and wash the parts, flushing the solution
thoroughly in, over and through all parts and
surfaces of the parts being cleaned.
3. Allow to air dry.

ADJUSTMENTS
Adjustment Of The Water Regulator Assembly Water-cooled Models
Adjustment Of The Cube Size Control
The correct compressor head pressure on water
cooled models is 220 PSIG. Adjusting the water
regulator valve increases or decreases the rate of
flow of water, through the water cooled condenser;
which increases or decreases the affected
temperature/pressure of the compressor head
pressure, INCREASED water flow, results in
DECREASED or LOWER head pressure; while,
DECREASED water flow, results in INCREASED
or Higher head pressure.
BEFORE adjusting the cube size control, check
other possible causes for cube size problems,
refer to Service Diagnosis section. DO NOT
perform adjustment when a new cube size control
is installed until the control bulb has been properly
installed in the tube well, and the icemaker has
been through a complete freezing and harvest
cycle.
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
To adjust the water regulator assembly:
To INCREASE the head pressure, rotate the
adjusting screw COUNTER Clockwise.
To DECREASE the head pressure, rotate the
adjusting screw Clockwise. Check change in
compressor head pressure, and repeat adjustment
as necessary, to achieve desired operating head
pressure.
//////////////////////////////CAUTION////////////////////////////////////
Adjustment of the cube size control is available to
change the cubes to the correct size, see INITIAL
START UP.
To produce LARGER sized ice cubes:
1. Locate the cube size control, on the front of the
control box.
2. Rotate the adjusting knob one-eighth of a turn
Clockwise.
3. Observe size of ice cubes in next ice cube
harvest and, if needed, repeat step 2 above until
correct ice cube size is achieved.
To produce SMALLER sized ice cubes:
1. Locate the cube size control, on the front of the
control box.
2. Rotate the adjusting knob one-eighth of a turn
COUNTER Clockwise.
3. Observe size of ice cubes in next ice cube
harvest and, if needed, adjust again until correct
ice cube size is achieved.

ADJUSTMENTS
Adjustment Of The Timer & Switch Assembly
Electrcial power present
in the control box can
cause personal injury.
Disconnect power
before begining to
adjust timer.
To Adjust The Timer & Switch Assembly:
The length of the harvest cycle can be changed by
loosening the set screw on the cam, and then
rotating the shaft so that the opening between the
cams change. More of an opening between the
cams = more harvest time.
TIMER
One complete revolution of the cam on the timer
takes eight minutes. The normal setting is two and
one-quarter minutes, as set at the factory. lt is
important that the length of the harvest cycle allow
enough time for all the ice cubes to fall from the
evaporator. Too short of a time will cause the
evaporator to freeze up and stop ejecting ice into
the bin. Too much time wastes icemaking capacity,
energy and water. Adjustment of the harvest cycle
may require a corresponding adjustment of the
cube size control. Rotating the shaft of the timer
cam clockwise will allow putting the machine into
either the freezing cycle or harvest cycle, as
required in the cleaning instructions.
