4. Set Up
After removing the packing materials, check the appearance of the
ice maker for possible defects or irregularities. Should the product
show any irregularity in its appearance, contact the dealer
All packing materials (strings, box, Styrofoam, wood, etc.) should be
placed out of children’s reach and disposed of properly.
For safety, the product should be installed and used in accordance
with the User Manual.
Incorrect installation, or careless use of the product, may damage the
environment, humans, animals, and/or materials and property. The
manufacturer bears no responsibility for such damage or injury.
The automatic ice maker performs best at room temperature of
60°~75℉ and a supply of water at 50℉.
The ice maker should be installed in a controlled indoor environment,
but NOT near heat generators such as radiators, stoves, or
Air Flow
The ice maker draws indoor air through the left part of the kick plate/grill using a fan, and expels hot air
through the right part of the kick plate/grill. Do not place any material in front of the kick plate/grill, as this
disrupts the air flow. This results in reduced performance and, in the worst case, malfunction.
The ice maker should be operated within a temperature range of 50℉ to 75℉.
Water Supply
The ice maker requires a continuous supply of drinking water at 20psi or higher pressure. The hydrostatic
pressure should not exceed 80psi.
Water Quality
There is no such thing as “perfectly pure” water. Water - even tap water - contains some impurities.
Rainwater absorbs impurities from the atmosphere or when it passes through soil. Some impurities
consist of solid particles called suspended solids and are filtered through micro filters. Some remaining
impurities cannot be filtered because they are chemically combined with water molecules. These
impurities are called dissolved solids.
The mineral content of ice produced by the ice maker is reduced compared to the water before conversion
into ice. Water containing a low level of impurities freezes rapidly. Impurities elevate the temperature of
water. Most impurities condensed in the water-tank of the ice maker form a hard precipitation called
This ice maker reduces the mineral level by circulating water during the ice production cycle (with excess
water removed via the outlet tube). Each cycle requires just over 20 ounces (0.64 quart) of water. For each
cycle, about 16 ounces (0.5 quart) is used in rinsing the water tank, with the remaining quantity removed
through the outlet pipe. In this process, some impurities unavoidably remain. They may accumulate on the
internal parts of the ice maker, forming abnormal ice pieces. Should a large quantity of mineral scale
accumulate, the lifespan of your ice maker may be reduced.
For best operation of the ice maker, impurities and minerals should be decomposed by washing with a
cleaning solution periodically. The method of cleaning the ice maker is described on pages 18 and 19.
In general, it is mandatory to use filtered water. Filters remove not only bad odors but also particles.
Dissolved solids may be treated with a reverse osmosis system, a condensed phosphate feeder, or a good
carbon filter. Neutral water is not recommended. Water softeners should not be used for the water
supply because they add minerals and soft ice may result. If you have any questions about the purity of
water, address your inquiry about water treatment to your Aficionado dealer, or to a water quality expert in
your area.
This product was thoroughly washed at the factory. However, check the cleanliness of the inside before use
and keep it clean during use.

The front and rear of the ice maker must be perfectly leveled. If installed on an uneven floor, and the unit is
not leveled, ice clumping may occur due to improper drainage, as the drain is not able to process the water
fast enough.
Double check that proper leveling is accomplished by placing your level in at least 4 to 6 locations (front
right, front left, center front center middle center rear for instance).
Important Information! If the ice maker is installed in a corner, the door handle may limit the opening of
the door.
The finished bottom should be protected during installation to avoid possible damage when moving the
Important Information! When moving the product using a hand truck or dolly, place the dolly at the side
of the product and tape the door shut to avoid possible opening during movement.
Requirements for Power Supply
120 volt, 60Hz, dedicated 15-amp circuit breaker and electric power are required. A separate circuit is
required for grounding. The power cord of the product should be inserted into a suitable 3-prong groundingtype outlet.
Important Information! A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is not recommended because the
operation of the product may be stopped.
Important Information! The provisions of the National Electric Code as well as any local laws and
instructions should be observed when installing the product.
Do not use extension cords or 2-prong adapters. The product must be fully grounded, according to
local/state/national electrical codes .
Requirements for Plumbing
Plan the arrangement of water supply pipes. Connect a 1/4" diameter copper pipe as the source of cold water.
Install a shutoff valve between the tap water pipe and the ice maker so that the user can control the water flow.
Do not install the shutoff valve at the back of the product where it cannot be reached. Do not use a selfpiercing valve. An inline water filter (not supplied) is required to keep the warranty in effect.
The tap water pressure should be maintained at levels between 20psi and 80psi. If an electrical outlet is
available at the back of the ice maker, installation may be easier. A clock-type inverted receptacle is
recommended for the overlay model, so that after 3/4” wood is applied, the unit fits flush in the front. Electric
power, inlet water pipe, and drain pipeline installation should satisfy all provisions for local laws and
regulations. For tap water position, refer to the installation specifications and drawings on pages 10 and 11.
Important Information! The product is designed for built-in or free-standing use. However, it may be
necessary to slide the icemaker forward for service. For this reason, do not install any material at the front,

Installation Checklist
Important Information! The installer should check whether any installation part has been omitted and follow
the check list below to ensure safe and proper installation.
If you have any questions or problems regarding installation, address your queries to the distributor or dealer.
Does the ice maker work properly?
If the ice maker does not work, check whether the plug has been inserted properly.
Did you remove all the packing materials and tapes from the inside of the ice maker?
Did you follow all instructions during installation?
Did you level the unit? Proper leveling is key to prevent ice from clumping, because if improperly leveled,
the water will not drain and it will cause ice cubes in the bin to adhere to each other.
Is the front of the kick plate/grill adequately ventilated? The grill must have zero blockage for the icemaker
to function properly. No pet hair, no dust. Vacuum the grill periodically.
Does the owner sufficiently understand the operation of the ice maker?
Used ice makers should be safely stored or disposed of properly. Ensure that the product’s door has been
removed or permanently closed. If children can enter the icemaker, a serious accident may occur.
9. Operating
the Ice Maker
Initial Operation
1) Open the water supply valve connected with the ice maker.
2) Insert the ice maker plug into the electrical outlet.
3) Open the door and turn the switch at the lower end of the
product to the “ICE” position.”
4) Discard the first batch of ice.
Fig. 9 Switch
5) Good-quality ice is produced 1-2 hours later.
Using the Ice Maker
Use of the ice maker is very simple. Water is supplied to the ice
maker and the water is also drained. Simply turn the switch at the
lower end of the product to the “ICE” position. The product
automatically starts ice production, which continues until the ice
container has been filled with ice. The produced ice drops down
the ice container. Remove the ice using the ice scoop found on the
inside left wall of the ice maker.
The ice maker produces 24 pieces of ice every 30 minutes.
Important Information! Do not put anything other than ice into the
ice container. Wine or beer bottles are unsanitary and a detached
label may block the drain pipe.
Fig. 10 Ice Cube
The ice has a “top hat” shape (refer to Figure 10). Newly produced ice is clear and transparent. The inside
of the ice is sometimes cracked; however, such cracks commonly occur in the production process and
disappear with time. Ice stored in the container for a long time may gather frost on the outside and look
cloudy. This is normal. Once water is poured on the ice, the frost will disappear.
Ice Container
The product continues making ice until the level of ice reaches the temperature sensing tube (right side). It
then ceases production. The model with a drain pump drains away melted ice when the ice maker is turned
off. The pump works for only several seconds.
Operation Time
It takes about 20-35 minutes to produce a set of 24 ice cubes. The length of one cycle of the ice maker (ice
production and ice removal) differs depending upon the cleanliness of the ice maker, the surrounding
temperature, and the temperature of the water supplied to the ice maker. It takes about 10-12 hours to fill
the empty ice container with ice.
Ice Production
The ice production process largely consists of two cycles – ice production and ice removal. 24 ice cubes are
produced with each cycle of ice production and ice removal. When water is sprayed onto the surface of the
frozen ice-forming mold, the ice production cycle starts. When ice is removed and water is supplied to the
ice maker, the ice removal cycle begins again.
Ice Removal Cycle
The compressor works during the progression of the ice removal cycle, but the pump motor and fan motor
will stop. The hot gas valve and water supply valve turn on. When the two valves are opened and the frozen
surfaces are heated, ice drops down into the container. Then the ice removal cycle is stopped and the ice
production cycle starts again automatically.
How Ice is Produced
The ice maker draws water from the fixed water source that feeds into the water container. When water is
sprayed onto the surface of the ice-forming mold, the water not containing mineral impurities freezes and
attaches to the ice-forming mold. The water containing impurities drops down into the water container. As
the ice production cycle progresses, the mineral impurity level in the water container rises. During the ice
removal cycle, water is fed into the ice maker, thus diluting the water in the container and washing a portion
of the concentrated minerals out through the drain pipe.
10. Cleaning
the Ice Maker
All the exterior parts, door, ice container, condenser, water circulation parts, and ice scoop of the product
should be kept clean. The ice maker should be cleaned periodically. Keeping the ice maker clean extends
the lifespan of the product. Regular cleaning of the entire ice maker should be performed at least once a year.
The frequency of cleaning the ice-production system should be increased depending upon the water quality;
and increased further still if the user has carpets or keeps a pet in the vicinity of the product (due to pet hair).
Good water filtration, which is required to qualify for warranty coverage, helps keep the icemaker clean.
Cleaning the Exterior
If the surface of the door and handle becomes stained, clean at once. If the door and/or gasket have spots on
their surface, remove the spots using soap and warm water. Use non-abrasive cloths or pads. In the case of
a stainless steel exterior, use a soft and non-abrasive stainless steel washing agent and a soft lint-free cloth.
When performing maintenance work or cleaning, turn off the power switch or circuit breaker on the ice maker.
Cleaning the Ice Container
The ice container should also be cleaned regularly. Mix 1 ounce of household bleaching agent with 2 gallons
of warm water at 95℉-115℉ (35-45℃) for use as a cleansing fluid. Moisten a clean cloth with the cleansing
fluid, scrub the inside of the ice container, and pour a small quantity of the fluid into the drain pipe. Then dry
the interior.
Cleaning the Condenser
If the condenser is not cleaned regularly, the temperature may drop or the machine may experience
technical problems or sustain damage.
The condenser should be cleaned 2-3 times a year to remove any lint that has accumulated on the condenser.
When cleaning the condenser, remove the front lower panel and the kick plate/grill using a screw driver. Then,
remove any dust and lint from the condenser using a soft bristle brush. Using a vacuum cleaner to remove
the dust is recommended for easier cleaning.
Important Information! To avoid possible bending of the condenser fins, clean the condenser in the
direction of the fins (up and down).
Cleaning the Ice-Production System
1) Open the door and turn off the switch at the lower right front.
2) Remove all the ice and dispose of it or store it in a freezer.
3) Pour 4 ounces of a washing agent (liquid dishwashing detergent) into the water container of the ice maker.
4) Turn the switch to the “WASH” position. The process of automatic wash (2 minutes) and water circulation
(4 minutes) will be repeated three times.
5) It may be necessary to repeat the above process 2-3 times (without adding additional detergent) to
thoroughly rinse the system.
6) Clean the ice container, ice curtain, slide grill, spray nozzle, nozzle frame, connective hose, ice scoop, and
the inside of the water container using a mixture of washing agent and water. Wipe dry. Regularly wash the
ice scoop. It may be washed together with other food containers. Just place it into the dishwasher
and use the sanitizing cycle.
7) Replace the ice removed in Step 2.
The use of a washing agent may cause burns. In the event that a person drinks the washing agent, do not
allow that person to vomit. Have the person drink a large quantity of water or milk. Visit a physician at once. If
the skin is stained with a washing agent, wash it out thoroughly. Keep the washing agent out of the reach of
11. Maintaining the Ice Maker
Shut Down Procedure for Storage in an Unheated Home.
1) Clean the ice-production system following the instructions detailed above.
2) Turn off the power.
3) Empty the water container. Remove the pump hose. The pump hose may be removed after removing the
back panel of the ice maker.
4) Separate the inlet pipe connected with the water supply valve.
5) Turn on the power and turn the switch to the “WASH” position to open the water supply valve and to
remove the water from the inlet pipe inside the ice maker.
6) In the case of the drain pump model, pour 1/2 gallon of RV anti-freeze mixture (propylene glycol) into the
ice container.
Important Information! Do not use an anti-freeze product intended for automobiles.
7) Turn off the ice maker and remove the plug from the electrical outlet.
When using the ice maker after an extended absence, re-connect the pump hose and other hoses. Repeat the
initial starting steps described on page 16.
