PREPARING YOUR ICE MAKER FOR USE
IMPORTANT SAFETY TIPS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed to reduce the
risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons or property. Read all instructions before
using any appliance.
z
Do not operate this or any other appliance with a damaged cord.
Connect to properly polarized outlets only. No other appliance should be plugged into the
same outlet. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted into the receptacle.
z
Do not run cord over carpeting or other heat insulators. Do not cover the cord. Keep cord
away from traffic areas, and do not submerge in water.
z
We do not recommend the use of an extension cord, as it may overheat and become a
fire risk. If you must use an extension cord, use a cord of No.14 AWG minimum size and
rated for no less than 1875 watts.
z
Unplug the ice maker before cleaning it or making repairs.
z
Exercise caution and use reasonable supervision when appliance is used near children.
z
Do not clean your ice maker with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion.
z
Do not tip over.
z
If the ice maker is brought in from outside in wintertime, give it a few hours to warm up to
room temperature before plugging it in.

OPERATING PROCEDURES & MAINTENANCE
UNPACKING YOUR ICE MAKER
1. Remove the exterior and interior packaging. Check that ice basket and ice scoop are
included. If any parts are missing, please contact customer service.
2. Clean the interior with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Take out the ice basket and clean
it .
3. Find a location for your ice maker that is protected from direct sunlight and other sources
of heat (i.e.: stove, furnace, radiator). Place the ice maker on a level surface. Maker sure
that there is at least 5 inches of space between the back and sides of your ice maker and
the wall.
4. Allow one hour for the refrigerant to settle before plugging ice maker in.
5. The appliance must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.
CONNECTING YOUR ICE MAKER
!
DANGER
* Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the
power cord is damaged please call customer service.
1. This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to
minimize the possibility of electric shock.
2. Plug your appliance into an exclusive, properly installed, grounded wall outlet. Do not
under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any
questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified
electrician.
3. This appliance requires a standard 110~120 volt, 60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong
ground.
CLEANING AND MAINTAINING YOUR ICE MAKER
Before using your ice maker, you are strongly recommended to clean it thoroughly.
1. Take out the ice basket.
2. Clean the interior with diluted detergent, warm water and a soft cloth.
3. The outside of the ice maker should be cleaned regularly with a mild detergent solution
and warm water.
4. Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.
5. When the machine is not in use, open the water drain cap to completely drain the water
reservoir.
4
USING YOUR ICE MAKER
1. Select the size of the ice cube by pressing the “Select” button. If the room temperature is
lower than 60°F, it is best to select the small or medium ice size, otherwise the ice cubes
might stick together.
2. Open the cover, remove the ice basket and pour water into tank.
Keep water level below the level mark.
3. Press “Power” on the control panel to begin the ice making cycle.
4. The ice making cycle lasts 6 to 14 minutes, depending on the size of the ice cubes
selected.
5. While the ice maker is on, verify the water level periodically. If the water level is too low,
the ice maker will stop automatically, and the “Water” indicator will turn on.
Press the “Power” button, fill the unit with water, and then press the “Power” button again.
Allow the refrigerant inside the compressor at least 3 minutes to settle before restarting.
6. The ice maker automatically stops working when the ice basket is full.
7. Change the water in the water reservoir periodically to ensure cleanliness and hygiene.
8. It is best to use tap water or bottled drinking water in the ice maker. Distilled water may not
work. If you do use distilled water and the ice maker will not function, try adding a little salt
into the water (a small amount of salt added to the water should be imperceptible).
9. If the ice does not taste good, or the unit develops a musty odor, try running a few cycles
of the ice maker with a mild white vinegar solution. Then empty out all the vinegar solution
and run a few cycles with plain water to eliminate all traces of the vinegar.
If the ice maker will not be used for an extended period of time, you should drain the water
from the reservoir.
