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.
B
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.

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
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 450F (7.20C), 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.
PREPARING THE ICE MACHINE FOR
STORAGE
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.
Step 1: Clean the ice machine (refer to page 11.)
Step 2: Drain and remove water from ice making system.
1. Turn off the water supply to the ice machine.
2. Disconnect the water supply fitting at the inlet of the water valve.
3. Switch the rocker switch to “CLEAN” for approximately 1 minute. This will energize and open the water valve
and remove most of the water from the water valve and the water valve’s outlet water line to the reservoir.
4. Switch the rocker switch to “OFF”. This will energize and open the drain valve to drain the reservoir and the
ice machine drain system.
5. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet.
6. Remove the back panel from the rear of the unit.
7. Disconnect the water valve’s outlet water line to the reservoir and drain the remaining water left in the water
line trap area.
8. Reconnect the water valve outlet water line and tighten the compression nut to a watertight seal.
9. Reinstall the unit’s back panel.
10. Clean and dry the ice machine’s storage bin.
11. Prop the door open for air circulation to prevent mold and mildew.
12. Leave the water supply line disconnected or reconnect the supply line and leave it shut off. DO NOT turn the
water and allow water to enter back into the water valve.
STEP 3: Drain water from optional drain pump, if applicable.
1. Remove the drain pump from the ice machine. (Refer to drain pump installation instructions).
2. Drain the water in the drain pump’s reservoir by running the pump upside down and allowing water to drain
through the pump’s inlet and vent tube fittings.
3. After all water is drained, reinstall the drain pump. Make certain all tubing is installed and all hose clamps are
tight. (Refer to drain pump installation instructions).
Step 4: Restart the ice machine when ready for use.
1. With the rocker switch in the “OFF” position, plug the unit into an electrical outlet.
2. Reconnect or turn on the water supply line.
3. Reconnect drain tubing if removed.
4. Turn the rocker switch to the “ON” position.
5. Check the water inlet, drain lines, and fittings for any water leaks.
6. Check drain pump, (if applicable), operation by pouring approximately 2 quarts (1.9 L) of water into the ice
storage bin. The drain pump should activate and discharge water. (Refer to drain pump installation
instructions). Check for water leaks at all hose connections.
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.

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.
16
If the ice machine is moved, not used for an extended
period of time, or will be in a area below 45°F (7.2°C), it
is necessary to remove the water from the ice making
system.
CAUTION
This ice machine must have all water drained and removed to
prevent ice machine damages as well as possible water damage to

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.
