SCN60
Installation and Use
Introduction
This manual includes information for the
installation, operation and maintenance of the
SCN60 residential ice machine.
The SCN60 was developed to offer fans of
Scotsman’s Nugget Ice form the ability to have that
ice in their homes. Previously Nugget Ice was only
available in commercial establishments, where it
developed a strong following because of the
chewable nature of the ice. This machine makes
authentic Nugget ice, using the same process as
the larger commercial machines.

The cabinet is fourteen and seven eighths inches
wide by thirty three and three eighths to thirty four
and three eighths inches high.
This machine can be supplied with Reverse
Osmosis water, but the water conductivity must be
no less than 10 microSiemens/cm. A reverse
osmosis system should include post treatment or
blending to satisfy the R.O. water’s potential
aggressiveness.
Utility and Operational Requirements

water supply.
The water supply must have a conductivity of
at least 10 microSiemens/cm.
Minimum water pressure: 20 psi
Maximum water pressure: 80 psi
Minimum water temperature: 40 degrees F.
Maximum water temperature: 90 degrees F.
It is designed to operate in wide range of air
temperatures:

• Maximum air temperature: 100 degrees F.
Although the machine will function within the listed
ranges, it works best at water temperatures
between 50 and 60 and air temperatures between
60 and 80.
Note: Ice making capacity goes down as the
environmental temperatures go up, and will be
severely reduced at temperatures over 90 oF.
Deionized water is not recommended and could
damage the machine.
Because water softeners exchange one mineral for
another, softened water may not improve water
conditions when used with ice machines
Electrical power
The unit must be on its own 115 volt, 60 Hz, 15
amp circuit. It is equipped with a power cord and
can be plugged into a nearby outlet. Extension
cords are not allowed by most codes. Follow all
applicable codes.

SCN60
Installation and Use
Location Recommendations:
The machine can be built into a cabinet. It is an air
cooled refrigeration system and so air flows in and
out of it through the grill at the bottom front. The
grill must not be blocked by any covering door or
other obstruction.
Drain Conversion: A gravity drain model can be
converted to a drain pump model by installing a
drain pump kit. The drain pump kit consists of a
drain pump, wiring harness and associated tubing.
The part number is A39462-021.
Installation Notes
Built In Situations: If a finished floor is to be
installed in the area after the ice machine has been
built in, shims the expected thickness of the floor
should be installed under the unit to keep the
machine level with the planned floor level.
Note: The water connection is at the back and adds
a few inches to the cabinet depth. Minimum
clearance is 0 in. at the top, 2 in. at the rear and
1/8 in. at each side.
Installations on a slab: Use a pump model and
pump the water to the point of drainage. Pump
models will pump 1 story (10 feet) high.
Installations over a crawl space or basement:
Either gravity drain or pump model units may be
used, if there is not enough room behind the
machine for a drain/waste receptacle, the drain will
have to be below the floor.
Warm Air Out
Air Intake
There are two models, one is a gravity drain type
and it must have a building drain connection below
the level of the drain tube at the back of the
cabinet; the other is a pump drain model which can
force drain water up a maximum of 10 feet,
allowing it to be located where a gravity drain isn’t
available.
Note: When installed in a corner, the door swing
may be limited due to handle contact with the wall
or cabinet face.
All models require a water supply. Water supplies
vary in the degree of mineral content. High mineral
content water will require more frequent
maintenance. Water filtration may improve the
taste of the ice as well as cut down on some of the
mineral build up.
Kickplate Extension: In some situations the leg
levelers will be extended enough to become visible.
A kit to extend the kickplate over the legs is KKPF.
Cabinet Stability: In some free standing
installations it may be prudent to add a bracket that
secures the back of the cabinet to a wall. That kit
number is KATB.

Electrical and Start Up
The ice machine is supplied with a power cord. Do
not remove the grounding pin from the cord’s plug.
Do not use extension cords. Follow all codes.
Connect the machine to its own 115 volt, 15 amp
circuit.
1. If the electrical outlet for the ice maker is behind
the unit, plug in the unit.
Installation check list:
1. Has the unit been connected to the proper water
supply?
2. Has the water supply been checked for leaks?
3. Has the unit been connected to a drain?
4. Has the drain been tested for flow and leaks?
2. Position the unit in the installation opening.
3. Turn on the water supply. Make sure that the ice
maker is plugged in and the power is on.
5. Has the unit been connected to the proper
electrical supply?
6. Has the unit been leveled?
4. Slide unit into installation opening, paying careful
attention to water supply and drain connections. Do 7. Have all packing materials been removed from

the machine?
5. Pour a couple of quarts of water into the ice
storage bin; on drain pump equipped machines the
drain pump should start and water should pump
out. Check for leaks.
8. Has the door covering been installed?
Initial Start Up
1. Turn on the water supply and check for leaks.
6. Replace the service access panel.
2. Switch on the electrical power.
7. Level the unit as needed.
3. Push and release the On/Off switch to start the
machine. The Ice Making light next to the On/Off
switch will glow Green.
Warm air will flow out of the left front grill.
It will take about 10 minutes for the ice machine to
begin dropping nugget ice into the storage bin. It is
normal for that ice to melt and ice will continue to
melt, but at a slower rate. It will take about 6 - 7
hours to fill up the ice storage bin. The bin holds
about 20 lb of ice when full.
Ice level control
The ice level control for the SCN60 is an ultrasonic
sensor, located above the ice storage area. It is
automatic and there is no adjustment to make.
When ice melts or is used, and the ice level drops
below a preset distance the control turns the ice
making system back on. It makes ice until the
preset level is reached. Placing your hand in the
unit to remove ice does not affect the ice level.

Installation and Use
Use
No special instructions are needed for use. Just
take as much ice as you need, the machine will
replace it. A scoop is provided, and it can be stored
in the machine using the loop of tubing on the right
side as a holder.
Noise:
The machine can be shut off anytime by just
pushing and releasing the On/Off button.
Ice Making
What shouldn’t be done?
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is
not ice. Objects like wine or beer bottles are not
only unsanitary, but the labels can slip off and plug
up the drain.
The ice machine is designed for quiet operation,
but will make some noise during the ice making
cycle.
During ice making, nugget ice will drop into the bin
at an irregular rate; sometimes there will be little ice
falling while at other times a group of nuggets will
fall. Some water drops may also come out with the
ice. Both conditions are normal.
Never allow the machine to operate without regular
cleaning. The machine will last longer if it is kept
clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least
once per year, and preferably twice. Some water
conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning
of the ice making section, and some carpets or
pets will dictate more frequent cleaning of the
condenser.
Note: The Time to Clean light will switch ON after 6
months of use. It will remain ON until the ice
making system is cleaned using the process on
page 14.

Maintenance
Scotsman strongly recommends regular
maintenance of this ice machine. During normal
operation mineral scale that is in the water supply
will gradually build up on the ice making surfaces.
That build up can cause excessive loading of the
ice making system, which can cause premature
failure. Regular removal of the mineral scale will
lengthen the product’s life.
Winterizing
1. Clean the ice making system per the instructions
in the Maintenance section.
2. Open the door and push and release the On/Off
switch to turn the machine off.
3. Turn off the water supply.
Suggested maintenance schedule: every 6 months.
4. Remove the back wall of the ice storage bin.
Type of maintenance: Scale removal, water seal
check, water reservoir check, bin drain check, air
cooled condenser cleaning and storage bin
sanitation.
5. Remove drain plug and drain the water reservoir,
return plug to its original position.
Condenser cleaning
6. Drain pump models should have about 1/2
gallon of RV antifreeze (propylene glycol) poured
into the ice storage bin drain.
The condenser is like the radiator on a car, it has
fins and tubes that can become clogged with dirt
and lint. To clean:
Note: Automotive antifreeze must NOT be used.
1. Remove the kickplate and front service panel.
7. Switch off and unplug the machine.

How to remove scale from the ice making system.
Cleaning this machine involves adding a solution of
scale remover and water to the ice machine and
continuing to add it as it makes ice. The scale
remover must be diluted to the correct ratio. A
squirt bottle will make adding the scale remover
much easier when the unit is built in. If not built in,
remove the top panel for reservoir access.

The ice scoop should be washed regularly, wash it
just like any other food container.
Other Maintenance
While cleaning the system with scale remover,
check for water leaks at the bottom of the
evaporator. If any are found, call for service.
Note: It is normal for some lime scale to form on
the gear reducer cover. Wipe up any loose scale.
Check the top bearing.
The top bearing is non-metallic and requires no
lubrication. However, it should be checked for wear
occasionally. The top panel must be removed to
access the bearing.
After 40 minutes the ice machine and all the control
panel lights will shut off.
13. Pull the drain plug again to drain the system,
then replace it.

During ice making the refrigeration system takes
heat from the evaporator. The evaporator is a
vertical refrigerated stainless steel tube containing
water and a slowly rotating auger. When the water
gets to the freezing point, ice begins to form. That
ice is very soft and is pushed up the evaporator
tube by the auger. As ice is made more warm
water enters at the bottom. The soft, mushy ice is
forced up to the top of the evaporator’s tube where
it is forced through nine tapered holes. As the ice is
pushed through the holes excess water is
squeezed out. The ice comes out of the holes
shaped as a rod of ice. The rods of ice are broken
off by being pushed against the tapered flange
above the holes, forming the irregular lengths of
nugget ice. The ice sweep, rotating with the auger,
moves the ice to the ice chute where it falls by
gravity into the storage bin.

Control System
The control system operates the machine. The
controller operates on 12 volts AC, supplied by the
transformer. It uses an ultrasonic ice sensor to
measure ice level. The ultrasonic system transmits
sound waves into the ice storage bin and measures
the return time, when the return time is longer than
the preset time for bin full, the controller switches
the ice machine to an ice making mode. During ice
making the compressor, fan motor and auger motor
are operating.
The control system has two safeties: It will not
operate the machine without water and it will not
operate the machine if the auger motor is drawing
too much current or if it isn’t drawing any current.
The water sensor is checking the conductivity of
the water in the water reservoir. If there is no water
in the reservoir the conductivity will be zero and the
controller will either not start ice making or will stop
making ice.
The control pad has two switches and three lights.
The left switch button is On/Off. The right switch
button is Clean/Reset. The left Ice Making light is a
status light, it is ON when the machine has been
switched to an ice making mode. The center light is
a Water light, it will be ON when the controller has
sensed that there is no water available. It will go
out when the water supply has been restored. The
right light is a Time to Clean indicator light. It is
switched ON by the controller after six months of
power connect time. It will go out after the machine
has been cleaned following the process in the
Maintenance section.
The current or amps of the auger motor are
continually monitored by the controller during ice
making. If the current is too high, indicating an
overload, the controller will stop ice making. If the
current is zero, indicating an auger motor failure,
the controller will also stop ice making.

Water System
The auger is driven at about 11 RPM by the gear
reducer. The gear reducer is a sealed component
and does not require lubrication, as it contains a
charge of grease. The auger motor drives a set of
gears that all together reduce the motor speed to
the 11 RPM output speed and correspondingly
increasing the torque. The output shaft of the gear
reducer is hollow to accept the square end of the
auger.
The auger is one of the key components in this
product. It is a precision machined part cut from
solid stainless steel bar stock. It fits the inside of
the evaporator tube very closely and is aligned by
the gear reducer at the bottom and a self
lubricating bearing at the top.
As ice is made and forced up the evaporator, the
auger is being pushed down. That thrust is
supported by the bearings in the gear reducer.
Those bearings also provide alignment for the
bottom of the auger, keeping it centered in the
evaporator tube. The top bearing provides auger
alignment at the top.
slightly and water will flow into the reservoir
through the partially open float valve. It will flow in
continually as ice is made.
Water quality. Nearly all water supplies contain
some impurities or minerals. When ice is made
those minerals can remain behind in the ice
machine and coat its surfaces with a hard, stone
like substance known as scale. This scale must
occasionally be removed by scale remover. Scale
remover is a food grade acid that will dissolve the
scale so it can be washed away. Note: it is
important to ALWAYS dilute the scale remover
when using it on this machine. Never use undiluted
scale remover.
Some water treatment devices make very clean
water, Reverse Osmosis is one of those and this
machine may be used with RO water as long as
the conductivity is greater than 10
microsiemens/cm. Use of de-ionized water is not
recommended and will void the warranty.
Water Level
Water is kept from leaking out the bottom of the
evaporator by the water seal. The water seal is the
type of seal called a face seal, with the outside
diameter of a stationary half pressed against
the inside of the evaporator tube and a
rotating half attached to the bottom of
the auger. The sealing action takes
place where the faces of the two
halves rub together.
Water is the raw ingredient of
ice and it enters this machine
through the compression fitting in
the back. That leads to the float
valve and reservoir. When the float is
not supported by water, the float arm
is down and the attached float valve
is open. As water enters the reservoir, it
also flows into the reservoir’s outlet
tubing which leads to the
evaporator water inlet, filling the
evaporator. The float rises as
the water level is increased until
it has lifted high enough to force
the water valve to close, stopping
the flow of water. When the machine
is making ice, the water level will drop

Electrical Sequence
Upon power being supplied, all the lights will blink
once and the control system will immediately check
for water in the reservoir. If there is water no further
action will occur until the On/Off button is pushed.
Pushing the On/Off button starts the machine. The
Ice Making light will switch on. The auger motor,
compressor and fan will begin to operate. Those
three components will continue to operate until the
Ice Level Control detects that ice has built up to the
pre-set level. At that point the control system will
begin a shut down process by shutting off the
compressor and fan motor.
After sixty seconds the auger motor will shut off.
The purpose of this is to remove any ice from the
evaporator so the auger motor can restart with
minimal load.
The machine will restart after the ice level has
fallen one inch or more.
Other Control Functions:
To Shut Off: Push and release the On/Off button. If
the machine was off because the bin was full, the
unit will be switched to Off immediately. If the unit
was making ice, the compressor and fan motor will
shut off immediately, and the auger motor shut off
in sixty seconds. To shut the unit off immediately
while making ice, push and HOLD the On/Off
button until it shuts off.
the water it is in contact with. If there is no water
present, there will be no electrical continuity and
the control system will stop the machine and cause
the Check Water light to blink Red, alerting the
user of a lack of water. When water has returned to
the reservoir, the unit will automatically restart.
Power interruptions: If the power to the machine
failed during normal operation, the machine will
automatically restart after a two minute delay. If the
unit had shut down because of a safety, then the
unit remains in the shut down state.
Auger motor overload: If the auger motor current
exceeds the preset limit for a certain time, the
controller will shut the compressor and auger motor
off. The controller will keep the compressor and
auger motor off for four minutes, then restart them.
The controller records each overload as a strike. It
will erase the strike(s) if the current draw in the
sixty seconds following the restart is below the
preset limit. If within the sixty seconds after the
restart the current again exceeds the limit, the
controller again shuts the machine down and a
second strike is recorded and four minutes later a
second restart occurs. If the current is again
excessive the third time, the unit will stop restarting
and the lights will flash on and off every two
seconds.
Safety Shut Downs:
Auger motor low current: If the controller senses
the auger motor is not drawing any or minimal
current, it will shut the compressor and auger motor
down for twenty minutes before attempting a
restart. The twenty minutes are intended as time
for the auger motor to cool off if it has shut down on
its internal overload. The controller records that as
a strike. If in the next sixty seconds the auger
motor begins to draw current the strike is erased
and normal operation resumes. If the current is still
low, a second strike is recorded and the unit will
wait another twenty minutes before attempting a
third restart. If the third restart is normal, the strikes
are erased and normal operation is continued. If
the unit fails again, the unit will stop restarting and
the lights will flash twice on and off every two
seconds.
Lack of water. It is critical that the unit not operate
without a full charge of water. The water sensor in
the reservoir is used to check continuity through
Controller Failure: If all lights are flashing once
every 10 seconds the controller has identified an
internal failure and must be replaced.
To Clean: See Maintenance section for step by
step process. Pushing the Clean button while the
Ice Making light is On does not start the clean
cycle, it is only active from Off. Pushing the Clean
button from Unit Off starts the clean cycle:
• Time to Clean light flashes
• Auger motor operates for twenty minutes
• Auger motor and compressor operate for
twenty additional minutes
• Unit shuts off, Time to Clean reminder light
switches Off.

A capacity check will provide some idea of how
much ice is being made.
1. Operate the machine for 10 minutes until it is
stabilized.
2. Catch the ice as it is made for 15 minutes.
3. Weigh the ice and any melted water.
4. Multiply the weight from step 3 by 96 to get 24
hour capacity.
5. Compare to the chart below:
90oF. Air, 70oF water
59 lb / 24 hours
70oF. Air, 50oF. water
87 lb /24 hours
Note: Mineral scale build up inside the evaporator
will reduce the ice making rate, as will any lint or
dirt on the air cooled condenser or fan blade. All ice
making capacities listed by Scotsman are for clean,
new machines.
The ice storage bin is not refrigerated; it is an
insulated ice chest, so there is meltage. A
restricted drain or poorly operating drain pump will
allow water to puddle in the bin, increasing the ice
melt rate. A stopped up drain will cause the bin to
fill with water.
Refrigerant charge.
The charge is very small. Any leak will immediately
result in a loss of ice making capacity and
continued leaking will result in no ice being made.
The system is sealed, access must be by clamp on
valves, which must be removed after the repair is
completed.

Evaporator construction
The machine is designed to be cleaned while built
in. See the Maintenance section for more
information.
The evaporator is made up of a stainless steel
tube, wrapped with a coil of copper and then
heavily insulated. There is no refrigerant path to the
water inside of the evaporator. The inside of the
tube is polished and rifled with12 vertical grooves
that help guide the ice straight up the tube.

Evaporator / Auger / Water Seal / Gear Reducer
Service
The auger, top bearing, water seal and gear
reducer can be replaced without disturbing the
refrigeration charge. If the evaporator must be
replaced, then the refrigeration system must be
accessed so the charge can be recovered.
It is normal for mineral scale from the water to form
on the inside of the evaporator tube. That scale
must be removed by use of ice machine scale
remover using the process described in
Maintenance. Heavy scale build up will require the
process to be repeated. The inside of the
evaporator tube may be sanded vertically to
remove tough build up. Do NOT hone or clean with
a wire brush on a drill, as horizontal marks on the
inside of the evaporator will restrict the flow of ice.
A damaged evaporator must be replaced.
The auger can also have scale build up which must
be removed. It works best when it is clean and
shiny. Note that a wet auger will appear clean but
when dry the scale will be visible. Dry off the auger
(use your heat gun) to determine if it’s clean. If the
machine has been operated with worn bearings,
the auger may have rubbed the evaporator wall. If
the spiral edges or flights of the auger are
damaged, the auger must be replaced.
The ice breaker at the top of the evaporator
contains the pressed-in bearing. This bearing must
not be greased. If worn, the breaker with bearing
can be replaced.
The gear reducer is a sealed unit. The only service
part available for it is the drive motor and drive
motor capacitor.

Auger replacement requires a new water seal.
Follow all steps to replace the water seal except
substitute a new auger.
Auger Removal Procedure
Separate gear reducer from mounting plate
and attach a new gear reducer.
Do not
overtighten
If the auger does not lift freely, it may be stuck in
the gear reducer. To release it:
1
Remove ice sweep.
2
Remove 4 allen head bolts holding breaker to
evaporator.
3
Place 4 hex nuts (5/8 size) as spacers
between the breaker and the top of the
evaporator.
4
Place a large flat washer or suitable hex nut
(as a spacer) over the top of the breaker.
5
Thread a 5/16 - 18 x 1 inch bolt into the top of
the auger thru the washer and/or hex nut and
screw the bolt into the auger. As it tightens
against the nut it should lift and loosen the
auger. Once the auger has moved it should lift
out easily.
Note: Do NOT overtighten bolts securing gear
reducer to mounting plate. Tighten only until the
washer contacts the blue grommet.
