I II CHANGING THE BIN DOOR AND LOWER PANEL The storage bin door and lower panel are designed to accept an optional decorative wood panel of your choice. The wood panel should be no more than VI inch (6 mm) thick. Cut it to the same size as the production metal panel. See Figure 1. To change the bin door panel: 1. Open the bin door.

THERMOSTAT CALIBRATIONS If ice maker is installed above two thousand feet of altitude, the bin and evaporator thermostats must be adjusted to a warmer setting. Disconnect electricity, remove thermostat and follow the directions for turning the altitude adjustment screw as shown in the label on each thermostat. SHIPBOARD OPERATION When this ice cube maker is installed aboard a ship, it will be necessary to purchase and install a water deflector. This deflector hangs between the lower edge of the evaporator and the cutter grid. It keeps the water flowing over the evaporator from spilling into the storage bin area. Order the necessary parts from your local ice maker dealer. 2 GENERAL INFORMATION 2 Either a gravity drain system or a sump pump to lift the water to an existing drain. 3 An electrical branch circuit of 115 Volt, 60 Hz, 1 phase, with a 15 Amp delayed action fuse or circuit breaker. .

The shims should be of hard permanen? type material such as masonite. 4 Compliance with National Sanitation Foundation standards require that this type of product be sealed to the floor at the bottom rail in order to prevent contamination from spills or the entrance of vermin. Therefore, we recommend that when installing this product you seal it to the floor in accordance with those standards. A silicone-type sealer is recommended. is unique but will require: 1 A cold water inlet of 114” (6 mm) OD soft copper tubing and a shut-off valve. 3 FOR THE PLUMBER . CONNECT TO WATER .

It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only this appliance, be provided. DO NOT use an extension cord. ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE. GROUND IS REQUIRED ON THIS RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, REMOVE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD GROUND PRONG. For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. This appliance is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating 3-prong grounding type wall receptacle, grounded in accordance with all governing codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. See Figure 6. - POWER SUPPLY FIGURE 6 ALTERNATE GROUNDING METHOD DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, REMOVE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD GROUND PRONG. If changing and properly grounding the wall receptacle is impossible and where local codes permit (consult your 5 inspector), a temporary adaptor may be plugged into the existing 2-prong wall receptacle to mate with the Bprong power supply cord. See Figure 7. THIS, HOWEVER, IS NOT RECOMMENDED. eleCtriCal NOTE: If this is done, you must connect the grounding eyelet on the adapter to the wall receptacle cover plate screw and from this same screw, you must connect a separate copper ground wire (No. 4 minimum) to a grounded cold water pipe*. See Figure 7. Do not ground to a gas supply pipe. Do not connect to electrical supply until appliance is permanently grounded. *Cold water pipe must have metal continuity to electrical ground and not be interrupted by plastic, rubber or other electrically insulating connectors (including water meter or pump) without adding a jumper wire at these connections. \ GROUND CLAMP MUST BE TIGHT ON PIPE.’ GROUND WIRE ELECTRICALLY GROUNDEDCOLD WATER PIPE (REMOVE PAINT, etc.) GROUNDING EYELET I 0 u =2 1 CORD FIGURE 7 6 WHEN THE DESIRED ICE SLAB THICKNESS IS REACHED, THE HARVEST CYCLE BEGINS AND THE FOLLOWING HAPPENS: l Evaporator thermostat is satisfied Compressor keeps running Condenser fan stops or turns very slowly Water pump stops Hot gas solenoid opens Water inlet valve opens Excess water is flushed out of the drain pan Cutter grid is warm to the touch NOTE: Normal harvest cycle takes 60 to 120 WHEN THE STORAGE BIN PS FILLED, BIN THERMOSTAT OPENS. f WAL .L RECEPTACLE SUPPLY 0 ..a 0 POWER 0 Compressor runs Condenser fan runs Water pump runs (circulates water) Cutter grid is warm to touch MACHINE RESUMES FREEZING AFTER SLAB IS RELEASED FROM EVAPORATOR AND THE CUTTING PROCESS BEGINS. _ il 3-PRONG GROUNDING PLUG 0 seconds.

Therefore the first cycle will be completed without water in the system. 0 As the room and water temperatures vary, so will the amount of ice produced. This means that higher operating temperatures will result in reduced ice production. 0 The unit will shut off when ice in the storage bin touches the bin thermostat well and will automatically cycle to keep the bin full. 0 The storage bin is not refrigerated and some meltage will occur. This, too, varies with the room temperature. 0 The unit needs good air circulation to perform efficiently. Keep the front grill and the condenser clean. 0 The water system, including filter screen in the water inlet solenoid valve, needs to be cleaned periodically for good circulation. Instruction are located on the inner door panel. The compressor runs at all times except when the bin thermostat becomes satisfied and opens up. This deenergizes the system except for the transformer, cutter grid and bin light. Under normal operating conditions, when the evaporator reaches the preset temperature (+ loOF, -12.2OCto -3OF, -19.4%, depending on thickness of ice) the evaporator thermostat opens, terminating operation of the fan motor and pump motor. The hot gas solenoid and the water valve solenoid are energized at this time and remain so until the evaporator reaches 380 + 2OF (3.30 + 1%). OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 0 For complete operating information, refer to the Use and Care Guide. 0 Before starting, wash out interior of cabinet with a Baking Soda solution (2 tablespoons soda to a quart of warm water). Rinse thoroughly. 0 Make certain the water is turned on. 0 Turn switch to the “ON” position. IMPORTANT: Allow unit to run for 3 hours before expecting ice and for 24 hours before trying to set the thickness control. If installed above 2,000 feet altitude, thermostat adjustments. see page 2 for r---- ---------------------j I CHECK OPERATION CUBELET CUTTER GRIDS Start the unit by turning the service switch to “ON” and opening the line water valve. NOTE: Left is “OFF”-Middle is “ON”--Right is “CLEAN.” In “CLEAN” position, only the pump operates. 19mmx19mm Check condenser fan to make sure it is revolving. Water will not enter pump pan until freezing plate gets cold and machine goes into a harvest cycle. Check for even water flow over freezing plate. Unit must be level for proper operation. b Check for desired cube thickness and after 24 hours adjust if necessary. Maximum ice yield will be obtained with ice thickness at l/2” (12 mm) to 518” (16 mm).
