Ice Machine Operation
Section 3
Ice Making Sequence of Operation
Initial Start-Up Or Start-Up After Automatic
Shut-Off
1. Water Purge
Before the compressor starts, the water pump and
water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to
purge the ice machine of old water. This ensures that
the ice-making cycle starts with fresh water.
The hot gas valve is also energized during the water
purge, although it stays on for an additional 5
seconds (50 second total on time) during the initial
refrigeration system start-up.
2. Refrigeration System Start-Up
The compressor starts after the 45-second water
purge, and remains on throughout the entire Freeze
and Harvest Sequences. The hot gas valve remains on
for 5 seconds during initial compressor start-up and
then shuts off.
At the same time the compressor starts, the condenser
fan motor (air-cooled models) is supplied with power
throughout the entire Freeze and Harvest Sequences.
The fan motor is wired through a fan cycle pressure
control, therefore it may cycle on and off. (The
compressor and condenser fan motor are wired
through the contactor. As a result, any time the
contactor coil is energized, the compressor and fan
motor are supplied with power.)
FREEZE SEQUENCE
3. Prechill
The compressor is on for 30 seconds prior to water
flow to prechill the evaporator.
4. Freeze
The water pump restarts after the 30-second prechill.
An even flow of water is directed across the
evaporator and into each cube cell, where it freezes.
The water fill valve will cycle on, then off one more
time to refill the water trough.
When sufficient ice has formed, the water flow (not
the ice) contacts the ice thickness probe. After
approximately 7 seconds of continual water contact,
the harvest sequence is initiated. The ice machine
cannot initiate a harvest sequence until a 6-minute
freeze lock has been surpassed.
3-2
HARVEST SEQUENCE
5. Water Purge
The water pump continues to run, and the water
dump valve energizes for 45 seconds to purge the
water in the sump trough.
After the 45 second water purge, the water pump and
dump valve de-energize. (Refer to “Water Purge
Adjustment” for details.)
The hot gas valve also opens at the beginning of the
water purge to divert hot refrigerant gas into the
evaporator.
6. Harvest
The hot gas valve remains open and the refrigerant
gas warms the evaporator causing the cubes to slide,
as a sheet, off the evaporator and into the storage bin.
The sliding sheet of cubes swings the water curtain
out, opening the bin switch.
The momentary opening and re-closing of the bin
switch terminates the harvest sequence and returns
the ice machine to the Freeze Sequence (steps 3 - 4).
AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF
7. Automatic Shut-Off
When the storage bin is full at the end of a harvest
sequence, the sheet of cubes fails to clear the water
curtain and will hold it open. After the water curtain
is held open for 7 seconds, the ice machine shuts off.
The ice machine remains off for 3 minutes before it
can automatically restart.
The ice machine remains off until enough ice has
been removed from the storage bin to allow the ice to
fall clear of the water curtain. As the water curtain
swings back to the operating position, the bin switch
re-closes and the ice machine restarts (steps 1 - 2),
provided the 3-minute delay period is complete.
Section 3
Ice Machine Operation
Operational Checks
GENERAL
Your Manitowoc ice machine was factory-operated
and adjusted before shipment. Normally, a newly
installed ice machine does not require any
adjustment.
To ensure proper operation, always follow these
Operational Checks when starting the ice machine:
• for the first time
• after a prolonged out of service period
• after cleaning and sanitizing
Routine adjustments and maintenance procedures
outlined in this manual are not covered by the
warranty.
WATER LEVEL CHECK
1. Check the water level while the ice machine is in
the freeze mode and the water pump is running.
The correct water level is 1/8”-1/2” (3-12.5 mm)
above the water pump impeller housing.
B. Raise or lower the float valve assembly as
necessary, then tighten the screws.
C. If further adjustment is required, carefully
bend the float arm to achieve the correct
water level.
ICE THICKNESS CHECK
After a harvest cycle, inspect the ice cubes in the ice
storage bin. The ice thickness probe is factory-set to
maintain an ice bridge of 1/8 inch (3.2mm). If an
adjustment is needed, follow the steps below.
1. Turn the ice thickness probe adjustment screw
clockwise for a thicker ice bridge, or
counterclockwise for a thinner ice bridge.
IMPORTANT
It is normal for cubes to have a slight dimple. This
is a normal characteristic associated with
Manitowoc’s unique shape.

Ice Machine Operation
HARVEST SEQUENCE WATER PURGE
The harvest sequence water purge adjustment may be
used when the ice machine is hooked up to special
water systems, such as a de-ionized water treatment
system.
Important
The harvest sequence water purge is factory-set at
45 seconds. A shorter purge setting is not
recommended. This can increase water system
cleaning and sanitizing requirements.
•
•
The harvest sequence water purge may be set to
15, 30, or 45 seconds.
During the harvest sequence water purge, the
water fill valve energizes and de-energizes by
time. The water purge must be at the factory
setting of 45 seconds for the water fill valve to
energize during the last 15 seconds of the water
purge. If it is set to less than 45 seconds, the
water fill valve will not energize during the water
purge.
Section 3
WARNING
Disconnect the electrical power to the ice machine
at the electrical disconnect before proceeding.
For your safety, and to eliminate errors, we
recommend that a qualified service technician make
the harvest water purge adjustment.

WATER-COOLED CONDENSER
AND WATER REGULATING VALVE
The water-cooled condenser and water-regulating
valve may require cleaning due to scale build-up.
Low ice production, high water consumption and
high operating temperatures and pressures all may be
symptoms of restrictions in the condenser water
circuit.
Because the cleaning procedures require special
pumps and cleaning solutions, they must be
performed by qualified maintenance or service
personnel. Follow the manufacturer instructions for
the specific product used.
MANITOWOC’S PATENTED CLEANING OR

cycles, and then stop. The Clean light will turn off to
indicate the sanitizing mode is completed. This
entire cycle lasts approximately 25 minutes.
Note: Periodic cleaning must be performed on
adjacent surface areas not contacted by the water
distribution system. If the bin requires sanitizing,
remove all of the ice and sanitize it with a solution of
1 ounce (30 ml) of sanitizer with up to 4 gallons
(15/l) of water.
