SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
CUBER ONLY
After the installation of the water lines from the primary water
supply, the float valve will be open and remain open until the
reservoir is filled to the proper level. (1/4” below the support).
Note: Primary water supply must not be less than 20 psi, nor
mor then 50 psi on Float Valves with no Flow Washer, or 125
psi for Float Valves with Flow Washer.
When the on–off clean switch is in the ”clean” position the
water pump will run. All other components are off. When the
switch is in the ”on“ position the compressor will be energized, after a short delay the fan will come on. When the
temperature of the evaporator reaches 20°F the sensor in
the evaporator tells the control board to turn the pump on.
When the evaporator sensor, senses an approximate temperature of 0°F it tells the control board to switch to the harvest mode.
In the harvest cycle the pump will remain engaged for
approximately 12 seconds. The compressor, hot gas valve
and dump solenoid will be engaged. When the ice is harvested, the curtain opens, breaking the magnetic field to the
proximity switch and the unit will return to the ”Freeze“ cycle.
If the curtain remains open, after approximately 8 seconds
the unit will shut down, indicating the bin is full. Note: On
units that are stacked, an interface cable connects the two
control boards. When the bottom unit shuts off due to a full
bin, the top will continue to operate until it completes the
cycle it is in and then will shut off on full bin (#2).
To check the control board: When the unit is in the freeze
cycle, power should be to the compressor, fan motor and
water pump (after evaporator reaches 20°). There should be
no power to the hot gas valve or the dump solenoid. When
the unit is in the defrost cycle, there should be power to the
compressor, hot gas solenoid, and dump solenoid. (The
pump will have power for approximately 12 seconds into the
defrost cycle).

Ice Production Check
Cycle time (CT) = freeze time plus harvest time, in minutes
and seconds. 1440 divided by CT = number of cycles per 24
hours.
Measure weight of ice from one cycle in pounds and fractions
of a pound.
Example: Weight/cycle x cycles/day = total
production/24 hrs. Compare to the production
tables.

FLAKER SANITIZING AND CLEANING PROCEDURE
1.
Turn switch to “OFF” to stop unit.
2.
(a) Turn water off and remove water hose float
chamber and proceed to drain the float chamber
and evaporator; or
(b) Remove float chamber cover and while holding
float up to prevent more water from entering the
float chamber, remove water hose from float chamber and proceed to drain the float chamber and
evaporator.
3.
With the float still held closed or water still off, restore water hose to float chamber and add 1/4 oz.
of “sanitizer” (see not below) to the float chamber.
Release float arm so that chamber fills with water.
Turn water on, if necessary.
4.
Turn switch to “ON” position and make ice for a
minimum of 10 minutes.
5.
Remove all ice from bin.
6.
During the period in which the ice is being made,
mix up the “sanitizer” for the bin and use as follows:
14
TD 184
Add 1/2 oz. “sanitizer” to a gallon of lukewarm water. With a non–metallic bristle brush, scrub the interior of the ice bin including the under side of the
door, and the outside of the ice chute that protrudes
into the ice bin.
7.
Rinse interior bin with clean water. (NOTE: Steps 6
and 7 should take no less than 10 minutes).
8.
Not less than 10 minutes after completing step #4,
turn switch to “OFF” and repeat step #2. After the
evaporator and float chamber have drained, restore
hose to float chamber, release float, replace float
cover and turn water on if necessary.
9.
Turn switch to “ON”. Collect and throw away the
first gallon of ice.
NOTE: APPROVED SANITIZER: “Calgon Ice
Machine Sanitizer” or Household Bleach.
CUBER SANITIZING AND CLEANING PROCEDURE
1.
Remove front panel to gain access to the on–off–
clean switch.
2.
Push switch to “clean” and allow the ice on the
evaporator to release of melt away.
3.
Remove ice from storage bin.
4.
If lime scale is present add 2 oz. of “Lime-A-Way” or
“Calgon Nickelsafe Ice Machine Cleaner” directly
into water reservoir. Circulate for no longer than 15
minutes. Depress dump valve switch on control
box and allow cleaner or sanitizer to drain away.
Allow float valve to fill reservoir with clean, fresh
water. Circulate for approximately 1 minute. Depress dump valve switch and allow water to drain
away. Repeat three times.
CAUTION: All ice machine cleaner must be flushed out of
the system before the sanitizing solution is used in Step 5.
The reaction of the two chemicals can cause hazardous gases
to be generated.
5.
Pour 1/2 oz. of household bleach into the water reservoir and circulate for 15 minutes to sanitize the
15
TD 184
circulating water system including the evaporator,
pump, distributor and all inter-connecting vinyl tubing. Depress dump valve switch on control box and
allow cleaner or sanitizer to drain away. Allow float
valve to fill reservoir with clean, fresh water. Circulate for approximately 1 minute. Depress dump
valve switch and allow water to drain away. Repeat
three times.
6.
Mix a sanitizing solution of 1oz. household bleach
to one gallon of water. Using a non-metallic bristle
brush, scrub the following:
A.
Inside surface of the ice bin including top and
door.
B.
Inside surface of the ice maker to include evaporator section in the ice machine including the
top, front panel and evaporator splash curtain.
C.
Make sure splash curtain is correctly positioned.
7.
Depress dump valve switch on control box and allow cleaner or sanitizer to drain away. Allow float
valve to fill reservoir with clean, fresh water. Circulate for approximately 1 minute. Depress dump
valve switch and allow water to drain away. Repeat
three times.
8.
Push switch from “clean” to “on” position.
9.
Replace front panel.
