SECTION ONE
INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
LOCATION
The ice maker may be closed in on the top, rear and two sides. The front MUST BE unobstructed for
proper air circulation and operation.
Installation should be such that the unit can be moved forward for servicing.
The installed area should be well ventilated, with ambient temperatures above 55°F (13°C) and below
110°F (43°C). BEST RESULTS ARE OBTAINED BETWEEN 70°F (21°C) AND 90°F (32°C).
The ice maker MUST BE installed in an area protected from the elements, such as wind, rain, water
spray or drips.
Provisions for electricity, water supply and drainage should be determined prior to installation.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
The ice maker requires an electrical branch circuit of 120 VAC, 60 Hz, single phase 15 amp. delayed
action fuse or circuit breaker.
It is recommended that the ice maker is the only appliance plugged into the receptacle. Do not use an
extension cord. Do not use a receptacle that is controlled by a wall switch.
ELECTRICAL GROUND IS REQUIRED ON THIS APPLIANCE. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, REMOVE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD GROUND PRONG.
WATER CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS
Materials needed for installation:
•
•
•
¼” OD copper tubing
¼” outlet, saddle-type shut-off valve
(part no. 541057)
¼” x ¼” tube union
(part no. 533812)
These materials can be obtained locally at a plumbing supply house or from FSP Parts Distribution by
ordering “Ice Maker Installation Kit” part no. 978567, which includes 25’ of copper tubing. Do not
use plastic tubing because it becomes brittle with age.
DRAIN CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS
The ice maker is equipped with a gravity drain or internal drain pump. The internal drain pump can be
installed separately and is available from FSP Parts Distribution (Part No. 2185528).
The ideal installation has a standpipe (minimum 1¼” diameter) installed directly below the outlet of the
drain tube.

THEORY OF OPERATION
OPERATING SYSTEMS
There are three operating systems in the ice maker:
•
Refrigeration System
•
Water System
•
Electrical System
Refrigeration System
The refrigeration system in the ice maker is very similar to the system used in other refrigeration
appliances such as a refrigerator or freezer. The refrigerant used in this unit is R-134a.
There are two very important additions to the refrigeration system in the ice maker:
•
Hot Gas Valve - This valve allows high pressure refrigerant gas to bypass the condenser and
flow through the condenser accumulator tube.
•
Condenser Accumulator Tube - the hot gas pushes liquid refrigerant in the accumulator tube
into the evaporator, helping to evenly heat the evaporator plate so the ice slab releases quickly
and evenly.
3
Water System
The water system provides the fresh water necessary for ice production and recycling this water as ice
is produced. The water system also flushes away rejected minerals and contaminates, circulates
cleaning solution during the CLEAN CYCLE and provides a means of drainage.
The hardness of the water supplied to the ice maker will affect the quality of the ice produced and may
also affect the operation of the water system. (See Chart in Section Five, TROUBLESHOOTING and
DIAGNOSTICS, page 16.)
A water softener or polyphosphate feeder will not cure all the problems associated with hard water, but
they can be used to reduce scale buildup in the ice maker. NOTE: Some polyphosphate feeders will
cause a slime buildup in the water system when the water supply has a low mineral content.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
The ice maker’s electrical system provides power for the refrigeration and water systems to operate,
and controls the operational cycling of the ice maker.
Wiring Diagram shows unit in Ice Making Mode
5
OPERATIONAL CYCLES
There are three operational cycles of the ice maker:
•
ICE MAKING CYCLE
•
HARVEST CYCLE
•
DIAGNOSTIC/CLEAN CYCLE
In addition, there are two operational OFF cycles of the ice maker:
•
OFF CYCLE when the bin is full of ice and the service control switch is turned “ON”.
•
OFF CYCLE when the bin is full and the service control switch is turned “OFF” while power is
still supplied to the unit.
Ice Making Cycle
Electrical System
In the electrical system, power is supplied through the service control switches to the primary side of
the voltage step down transformer (120VAC to 8.7VAC for the cutter grid and bin light) and the electronic control board. The electronic control board in turn supplies 120 VAC to the water recirculating
pump, water inlet valve, hot gas solenoid, condenser fan motor and compressor.
Refrigeration System
In the refrigeration system, the hot gas refrigerant, under high pressure, is forced through the condeser
into a liquid, and flows through the drier and capillary tube into the evaporator. Under low presure in
the evaporator, the liquid refrigerant absorbs heat from the water flowing over the evaporator. The
refrigerant evaporates into a gas and passes into the accumulator. As a low-pressure gas, the refrigerant flows back through the suction line of the heat exchanger to the compressor.
During ICE MAKING cycle, some of the hot gas that is in the condenser accumulating tube condesnses
to a liquid and remains in the accumulating tube.
During the later stages of the ICE MAKING cycle, as the ice slab forms on the evaporator freezing
plate, some of the refrigerant passing through the evaporator will not evaporate into a gas, but will
remain a liquid. This liquid refrigerant will settle in the accumulator while the refrigerant vapor is
sucked off through the suction tube at the top of the accumulator. This accumulated liquid refrigerant
will eventually be evaporated by the warmed refrigerant gas passing through the accumulator during
the HARVEST cycle and during the beginning of the next ICE MAKING cycle.
NOTE: It is very important the accumulator is not tilted out of a horizontal position.
Water System
In the water system, the water recirculating pump moves the water from the reservoir pan up to the
distributor, where it flows out over the evaporator freezing plate.
Water that does not freeze on the evaporator plate runs off the front edge and falls back into the
reservoir, where it is recycled back to the distributor.
As the ice slab forms, the minerals in the water are on the surface of the ice. The water flowing over
the top of the ice slab washes these minerals back into the water reservoir pan. The water continues
to recycle until the ice slab reaches the desired thickness.
6
Harvest Cycle
Electrical System
In the electrical system, when the set temperature of the evaporator thermistor is reached, the evaporator thermistor terminates power to the condenser fan and water recirculating pump, and supplies
power to the hot gas valve solenoid and the water fill valve solenoid.
Refrigeration System
In the refrigeration system, the hot gas valve opens, allowing high pressure refrigerant gas to bypass
the condenser and flow through the condenser accumulating tube. The hot gas pushes the liquid
refrigerant that has accumulated in the accumulator tube up into the evaporator. The hot liquid refrigerant evenly heats the evaporator plate so the ice slab releases quickly and evenly.
The ice slab, when released, slides off of the evaporator plate onto the cutter grid.
Water System
In the water system, the water valve opens, allowing water to flow into the water reservoir pan. As the
reservoir fills, the mineral-laden water from the previous ICE MAKING cycle is flushed out the overflow
tube.
As a result of the hot gas flow and the and the ice sliding off evaporator plate, the temperature rises,
and the evaporator thermistor switches the unit to the ICE MAKING cycle. This cycling, between the
ICE MAKING cycle and the HARVEST cycle, continues until the ice bin is full.
Table 1-1 shows how the electronic control board controls the various components and systems in the
ice maker for each of the ICE MAKING CYCLE and HARVEST CYCLE.
When the ice maker’s service control switch is in the “ON” position, and the bin is not full of ice, the
evaporator thermistor determines whether the unit will be in the ICE MAKING CYCLE or the HARVEST CYCLE.

Electrical System
In the electrical system, power is supplied to the water recirculating pump through the service control
switch.
Water System
In the water system, water recirculating pump circulates the cleaning solution that has been added to
the reservoir up to the distributor, across the evaporator, and back into the reservoir where it is recirculated while the service control switch is in the “CLEAN” position.

Optional Drain Pump
The optional drain pump consists of a motor, a pump that is magnetically coupled to the motor, a water
reservoir with sensing devices and an electronic control board that controls the water level in the
reservoir by using the sensing probes.
How It Works
1.
Water enters the drain pump reservoir from
the ice machine bin drain and the overflow
tube in the water reservoir.
2.
The drain pump reservoir has three probes
for sensing water level:
•
High Water Cut-In
•
High Water Shut Off
•
Common
As the water level rises to contact the high water cut-in probe in the reservoir, a signal is sent
to the electronic control board. The control board performs a low voltage comparison by water
contact between the high water cut-in and common probes. If water is contacting both probes
the pump motor turns on and the pump runs.
Once the water level drops and breaks the contact between the high water cut-in and common
probes, the electronic control board will turn the pump motor off after a built-in 12 second
delay. This delay prevents the motor from short cycling and over heating.
3.
If the the drain outlet becomes clogged to the point where water will not be allowed to be
pumped out or a large volume of water enters the reservoir quickly, the high water shut off
probe will come in contact with the water. If this occurs, the signal sent to the electronic control
board will trigger a complete shut down of the ice machine. The pump motor will continue to
function in this mode until the reservoir is empty or the motor cycles off from over heating.
(The motor is equipped with a resettable thermal fuse.)
