PROPER DISPOSAL (OF OLD REFRIGERATION UNIT)

DANGER

RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT

Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigeration Unit:

• Take off the doors.

• Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past.

Junked or abandoned refrigeration units are still dangerous... even if they will sit for

“just a few days.”

IMPORTANT:

Now that you have a new ice machine, it is extremely important that you dispose of your old appliance in a way that minimizes the possibility that children will find it. There have been many cases in years past of children crawling inside junked and abandoned refrigeration units and becoming trapped or suffocated.

Contact your municipal waste disposal authority to find out the best and safest way to dispose of your old refrigeration unit.

HOW THE ICE MACHINE WORKS

Your ice machine is unique in forming ice. It uses fractional freezing to form a slab of ice that is clear and has less mineral content than the water it is produced from. This is accomplished by running water over the cold evaporator plate which gradually freezes the water to produce the ice slab. Mineral deposits are left in the reservoir.

When the ice slab reaches the correct thickness determined by the temperature of the evaporator plate, the electronic control switches to the harvest cycle to harvest the ice slab. During the harvest cycle, the ice slab falls from the evaporator to the ice grid cutter. Here, the ice slab is cut into 3/4” squares by the grid cutter’s low voltage heated wires. During the harvest cycle, the drain valve will remain open for 45 seconds to drain the reservoir of remaining deposits. After that, the water valve will open for 2 minutes providing 2 quarts of water to the reservoir for the next ice production cycle.

The ice machine will keep producing ice until the ice machine’s storage bin is full and will restart automatically when ice needs to be replenished in the storage bin.

To begin ice production, turn the switch to the “ON” position.

Ice Machine Safety and Operation Tips

•Avoid leaning on the cabinet door. You may bend the door hinge or tip the unit.

•Exercise caution when sweeping, vacuuming, or mopping near the front of the unit. Damage to the grill and/or switch can occur.

•Periodically clean the inside of the ice machine components and inside of the unit.

•Periodically check and/or clean the front grill and condenser coils.

14

USING YOUR ICE MACHINE

1. Allow your ice machine to run for at least 48 hours to accumulate ice in the ice bin.

2. The unit will cycle off between ice production and ice harvest cycles.

3. Your ice machine will make unusual noises that you do not normally hear form your household refrigerator/freezer.

These noises do not mean your ice machine is not functioning properly. They occur as a normal part of the ice machine’s operations.

4. The unit will automatically shut down when the ice bin is full.

5. Unplug the ice machine before working on the unit.

6. Keep the ice machine clean for proper ice quality, production, and unit life.

7. Room and water supply temperatures will greatly affect the output of ice in the unit. (See table below.) Ice will also melt away, especially at the start of an empty bin, but will slow down as ice accumulates.

Outdoor Use

1. For best performance, install under a counter or shelter. Avoid direct sunlight.

2. If the ice machine is not used for an extended period of time or if temperatures are below 45 0 F (7.2

0 C), it is necessary to remove remaining water in the ice making system. (See Preparing Ice Machine for Storage, p. 12).

3. Chlorine gas from swimming pools and spas may discolor stainless steel. (See Cleaning and Maintenance below for instructions on cleaning).

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained properly and kept clean.

Condenser

The condenser tubing inside the cabinet does not require frequent cleaning; however, satisfactory cooling depends on adequate ventilation over the coils. Be sure that nothing obstructs the required air flow openings in front of the cabinet. Spiders and insects can nest in and around the ice machine causing damage to the unit. Frequently brush or vacuum (twice yearly) lint and dirt from the condenser for efficient performance by unscrewing the grill and kickplate on the bottom front of cabinet.

Cabinet

The cabinet can be washed with mild soap and water and thoroughly rinsed with clear water. Never use abrasive scouring powders.

Interior/Ice Scoop

Wash interior compartment and ice scoop with mild soap and water or a baking soda and water solution. Do not use abrasive powder, solvent, polish cleaner or undiluted detergent.

15

Stainless Steel Parts

All stainless steel parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water. Use a liquid cleaner designed for stainless steel when soapy water will not do the job. DO NOT USE bleach, steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleansers, or powders.

Do not permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on stainless steel surfaces, as citric acid will permanently discolor stainless steel. NOTE: Under rare conditions, such as an extremely salty environment, small amounts of rust may

accumulate on stainless steel parts. These small amounts of surface rust can easily be removed by apply Soft Scrub®

Gel to a damp sponge and wiping with the stainless steel grain. It is important to make sure you wipe with the grain for the most efficient removal of surface rust.

Brass Parts

CAUTION: All brass parts have an epoxy coating. DO NOT USE BRASS OR ABRASIVE CLEANERS ON THE BRASS

PARTS. All brass parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water. When hot soapy water will not do the job, use every day non-abrasive household cleaners.

Door Gasket

The vinyl gasket may be cleaned with mild soap and water, a baking soda and water solution, or a mild scouring powder.

Painted Surfaces

Wash with warm soapy water. DO NOT USE steel wool, abrasive cleansers, ammonia, acids or commercial oven cleaners which may damage the finish.

CLEANING THE ICE MACHINE SYSTEM

Some impurities will remain and buildup in the ice machine and stick to the ice machine’s parts over time. This buildup must be removed for proper ice production, ice quality, and ice machine life. Your ice machine is equipped with a cleaning mode that will help in cleaning out these impurities.

WARNING

Read and follow manufacturer’s warnings on ice machine cleaner products.

The ice machine will regularly (at the very least, annually) need to be cleaned of this build-up, depending on use and water hardness. You can use an acid such as one specified for ice machine cleaning or you can use citric acid to remove the build-up. To clean the ice machine:

1. Switch the selector switch to the “OFF” position.

2. Remove the drain plug at the bottom of the reservoir to drain any remaining water and then reinstall.

3. Remove the escutcheon panel.

4. Add cleaning solution to the reservoir. NOTE: Three quarts of water

will automatically be added to the reservoir. Therefore, cleaning solution should not be diluted. Please follow manufacturer’s instructions for mixing with 3 quarts of water.

5. Replace escutcheon panel and close door.

6. Switch selector switch on the grill of the machine to the clean position.

7. The cleaning cycle will end in 49 minutes. The cleaning cycle will automatically rinse the evaporator plate, drain the cleaning solution, and rinse the components.

8. After the cleaning cycle has ended, remove the escutcheon panel again and check that build-up has been removed. The evaporator plate should be clean, shiny, and smooth to the touch. If not and build-up is still visible, repeat the cleaning cycle above. If build-up is removed, continue below.

9. Remove the distributor tube, hose clamp, hose and its rubber ends.

10. Thoroughly clean the inside of the distributor tube and the spray holes. You can use the same cleaning solution as before and an old tooth brush to reach the inside of the distributor tube.

11. Reinstall the rubber end, hose, and hose clamp to the distributor tube and then reinstall the distributor tube to the evaporator with the spray holes pointed to the bottom of the evaporator plate. Reinstall the escutcheon panel.

Your ice machine is now clean and sanitized. It can be placed back into operation by switching the selector switch to the “ON” position. Please wait 48 hours for maximum ice production.

FINAL PREPARATION

1. Some stainless steel parts may have a plastic protective wrap which must be peeled off. The interior of the ice machine should be washed thoroughly with hot, soapy water, rinsed and wiped dry to remove film residue and any installation dust or debris before being used. Solutions stronger than soap and water are rarely needed.

2. All stainless steel parts should be wiped with hot soapy water. If buildup occurs, do not use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleaners, or powders. If it is necessary to scrape stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, soak with hot, wet cloths to loosen the material, then use a wood or nylon scraper. Do not use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel; scratches are almost impossible to remove.
