TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE,
ELECTRICAL SHOCK, OR INJURY WHEN
USING YOUR ICE MAKER, FOLLOW THESE
BASIC PRECAUTIONS:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE ICE MAKER.
WARNING: RISK OF DANGER TO SMALL CHILDREN AND SMALL ANIMALS.
ENTRAPMENT AND SUFFOCATION DANGER IF NOT PROPERLY SECURED. DISPOSED
OR ABANDONED APPLIANCES ARE STILL DANGEROUS
BEFORE YOU DISPOSE OF YOUR ICE MAKER: REMOVE THE DOOR AND LEAVE THE
SHELVES IN PLACE TO PREVENT CHILDREN FROM CLIMBING INTO THE UNIT.
NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO OPERATE, PLAY WITH, OR CRAWL INTO THE APPLIANCE.
NEVER CLEAN ICE MAKER PARTS WITH FLAMMABLE FLUIDS. THE FUMES CAN
CREATE A FIRE HAZARD.
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.

BEFORE USING YOUR ICE MAKER
REMOVE THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR PACKAGING MATERIAL.
CHECK TO BE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING PARTS:
• 1 ICE BUCKET
• 1 PLASTIC SCOOP
• 25 FT. HOSE
• 1 INSTRUCTION MANUAL
BEFORE CONNECTING THE ICE MAKER TO THE POWER SOURCE, LET IT STAND UPRIGHT
FOR APPROXIMATELY 4 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 BE RECESSED OR BUILT-IN (FULLY RECESSED).
PLACE YOUR ICE MAKER ON A HARD AND LEVEL FLOOR 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 FULLY LOADED. TO LEVEL YOUR ICE MAKER,
ADJUST THE LEG AT THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER.
PLACE THE ICE MAKER AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND SOURCES OF HEAT (STOVE,
HEATER, RADIATOR, ETC.). DIRECT SUNLIGHT MAY AFFECT THE ACRYLIC COATING AND
HEAT SOURCES MAY INCREASE ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION. EXTREME COLD AMBIENT
TEMPERATURES MAY ALSO CAUSE THE ICE MAKER NOT TO PERFORM PROPERLY.
AVOID LOCATING THE ICE MAKER IN DAMP AND HUMID AREAS. TOO MUCH HUMIDITY IN
THE AIR WILL CAUSE FROST TO FORM QUICKLY ON THE EVAPORATOR REQUIRING MORE
FREQUENT DEFROSTING OF THE ICE MAKER.
PLUG THE ICE MAKER INTO AN EXCLUSIVE 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 QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
aWARNINGa
IMPROPER USE OF THE GROUNDED PLUG CAN RESULT IN THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL
SHOCK. IF THE POWER CORD IS DAMAGED, DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY REPAIRS. ORDER A
REPLACEMENT FROM YOUR WHYNTER RETAILER AND HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN
REPLACE THE POWER CORD
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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 IS USED
WITH STANDARD THREE PRONG WALL OUTLETS TO MINIMIZE THE POSSIBILITY OF
ELECTRICAL MALFUNCTION.
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.
NEVER USE A TWO-PRONG GROUNDING ADAPTER.
WHERE A TWO-PRONG WALL RECEPTACLE IS ENCOUNTERED, 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 115/120 VOLTS A.C.~/60HZ ELECTRICAL OUTLET
WITH THREE-PRONG GROUND.
THE CORD SHOULD BE SECURED BEHIND THE ICE MAKER AND NOT LEFT EXPOSED OR
DANGLING TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL INJURY.
¾ EXTENSION CORD
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD WITH THIS
APPLIANCE. HOWEVER, IF YOU MUST USE AN EXTENSION CORD IT IS ABSOLUTELY
NECESSARY THAT IT BE A UL/CUL-LISTED, 3-WIRE GROUNDING TYPE APPLIANCE
EXTENSION CORD HAVING A GROUNDING TYPE PLUG AND OUTLET AND THAT THE
ELECTRICAL RATING OF THE CORD BE 115 VOLTS AND AT LEAST 10 AMPERES.
¾
CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
aWARNINGa
IMPROPER WATER LINE CONNECTION MAY RESULT IN FLOODING
YOU MUST USE A LICENSED PLUMBER AND
REVIEW STATE AND LOCAL PLUMBING CODES BEFORE INSTALLATION
•
•
•
ALL THE REQUIRED OR CUSTOMIZED HARDWARE IS NOT PROVIDED 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.
CONNECT SUFFICIENT TUBING TO THE UNIT TO ALLOW THE APPLIANCE TO BE MOVED
FREELY FOR CLEANING AND SERVICE. ALSO, MAKE SURE THAT THE TUBING IS NOT
CRIMPED OR DAMAGED DURING TRANSPORTATION.
POSITION UNIT TO ALLOW FREE AIRFLOW THROUGH THE FRONT GRILL (SEE SKETCH 1).
•
WIPE INSIDE OF UNIT AND ICE BUCKET WITH A DAMP CLOTH.

OPERATING YOUR ICE MAKER
¾
INITIAL START-UP OPERATION
1. PLUG THE APPLIANCE INTO A 115/120V POLARIZED AND GROUNDED WALL ELECTRICAL
OUTLET.
2. PLACE THE ON-OFF SWITCH IN THE “ON” POSITION.
3. MAKE SURE THE WATER SUPPLY IS ON. AS SOON AS THE INNER MECHANISM REACHES
THE PROPER TEMPERATURE, THE ICEMAKER MECHANISM WILL FILL THE MOLD WITH
WATER.
4. THE FIRST CUBES MAY BE SMALL BECAUSE OF AIR IN THE WATER LINE. LATER CUBES
WILL BE OF STANDARD CRESCENT TYPE SIZE.
5. APPROXIMATE TIME FOR THE FIRST CYCLE IS BETWEEN 30-40 MINUTES.
6. EACH CYCLE APPROXIMATELY WILL TAKE 5 OZS OF WATER SO YOU SHOULD HAVE A FULL
TRAY, AFTER 11 HOURS.
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. WHEN ICE CUBES ARE MELTED, THE ICE
MAKING MECHANISM WILL START AGAIN .
ICE DELIVERY MAY BE INTERRUPTED BY RAISING THE METAL ARM INTO
AN UPRIGHT POSITION (SEE SKETCH 2)
IF THE ICEMAKER IS NOT USED REGULARLY, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT
THE ICE BUCKET BE EMPTIED PERIODICALLY TO INSURE FRESH ICE.
SKETCH 2
•
•
•
SOMETIMES THE CUBES MAY APPEAR CLOUDY. THIS IS DUE TO THE RAPID FREEZING OF
THE ICE CUBE. THIS IS TRAPPED AIR IN THE WATER AND DOES NOT AFFECT THE TASTE
AND QUALITY OF THE ICE.
THE FRONT GRILL SHOULD BE KEPT FREE OF DUST AND LINT TO ALLOW FREE AIRFLOW.
THIS UNIT SHOULD BE DEFROSTED APPROXIMATELY EVERY 4-6 WEEKS OR WHEN FROST
ON THE ICE MAKER WALLS IS EXCESSIVE OR ¼” THICK. TO DEFROST, TURN THE UNIT OFF,
REMOVE CUBES AND KEEP DOOR OPEN AT LEAST TWO INCHES.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
¾
•
•
•
•
•
CLEANING YOUR ICE MAKER
TURN THE SWITCH CONTROL TO "OFF", UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER AND REMOVE ICE
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 CONDENSER COILS SHOULD BE VACUUMED WHEN THEY ARE DUSTY OR DIRTY.
CAUTION
FAILURE TO UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER DURING MAINTENANCE COULD RESULT IN
ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR PERSONAL INJURY.
¾ POWER FAILURE
TYPICALLY MOST POWER OUTAGES LAST FOR NO LONGER THAN 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 NEED TO TAKE THE PROPER STEPS TO DISCONNECT YOUR APPLIANCE.
¾ VACATION TIME/STORAGE
1.
SHUT OFF WATER SUPPLY AT THE MAIN WATER VALVE.
2.
DISCONNECT THE WATER SUPPLY LINE FROM VALVE.
3.
ALLOW UNIT TO RUN FOR AN HOUR OR TWO UNTIL ALL REMAINING ICE CUBES HAVE
BEEN EJECTED.
4.
DISCONNECT UNIT FROM MAIN POWER SOURCE.
5.
DRY OUT EXCESS WATER FROM ICE MAKER ASSEMBLY
6.
LEAVE THE DOOR AT LEAST TWO INCHES OPEN.

DAMAGE.
TAPE THE DOOR SHUT.
BE SURE THE ICE MAKER STAYS IN AN UPRIGHT POSITION DURING TRANSPORTATION.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
THE ICE MAKER SHOULD BE SITUATED IN THE COOLEST AREA OF THE ROOM, AWAY
FROM HEAT GENERATING APPLIANCES OR HEATING DUCTS, AND OUT OF THE DIRECT
SUNLIGHT.
