ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION
1.
2.
3.
4.
Remove the exterior and interior packaging. Check that the ice basket and
ice scoop are included. If any parts are missing, please contact customer
service.
Clean the interior with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Take out the ice
basket and clean it.
Place your ice maker in a location that is protected from direct sunlight and
other heat sources (e.g., stove, furnace, radiator). Make sure it is on a level
surface with at least 4 inches of space between the back and sides of the
unit and the wall.
Allow one hour for the refrigerant fluid to settle in the compressor before
plugging the ice maker in.
NOTICE: After unpacking your ice maker, it must
rest in an upright position for at least one hour
before you plug it in or the compressor may be
damaged, shortening the life span of the unit.
5.
Plug in your appliance into an exclusive, properly installed and 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 to a certified electrician.
We recommend you clean your ice maker thoroughly before using it. Please
see Cleaning & Maintenance on page 10 of this guide.

Press the “ON/OFF” button on the control panel to begin the ice making
cycle.
Select the size of the ice cube by pressing the “SELECT” button. If the room
temperature is lower than 60°F, it is recommended to select small or
medium ice in order to avoid the ice sticking together.
The ice making cycle lasts anywhere from 7 to 13 minutes, depending on
the size of the ice cubes you select and the ambient room temperature. Ice
making time may vary significantly in extremely high room temperatures.
Periodically verify the water level in the water reservoir when the ice
maker is on. If the water level is too low, the ice maker will automatically
stop and the “Add Water Indictor” light will flash in the LCD display
window. Press the “POWER” button to stop the unit and unplug it. Fill the
reservoir with water up to the level mark. Plug it in and press the “POWER”
button again to restart the unit. Allow at least 3 minutes for the refrigerant
inside the compressor to settle before restarting.
The ice maker automatically stops working when the ice basket is full. The
“Ice Bucket Full Indicator” will also turn on at this time.
Change the water in the reservoir every 24 hours to ensure hygienic ice. If
the ice maker will not be used for an extended period of time, drain the
water from the reservoir by unplugging the drain off cap located on the
side of the ice maker.

When the self-cleaning program is completed, unplug the uni and drain out
the water by unplugging the drain cap on the side.
Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.
Tighten the drain cap. Replace the ice basket and plug the unit in again.
To remove the build-up of calcium or other impurities, add a capful of vinegar
or lemon juice to the water in the reservoir and run for two or three ice-making
cycles. Drain and refill the reservoir with clean, warm water. Run two more
cycles to rinse the vinegar or lemon-juice.
When the machine is not in use, open the water drain cap to completely drain
the water reservoir.
STORAGE
Before storing your ice maker, clean it according to the directions above and
allow it to dry thoroughly – at least 24 hours – in order to prevent the growth
of mold or mildew.
Store your ice maker in the original packaging, or cover with a soft cloth or
plastic sheet.

Problem
The “ICE BUCKET FULL”
indicator light is on.
The “WARNING”
indicator light is on.
Possible Cause
The ice basket is full.
The “WARNING”
indicator flashes for 20
seconds when starting
or during operation.
Ice cubes stick together.
Ice-full detecting
sensor on the edge of
interior tank is
malfunctioning.
The ice cycle is too
long.
Ice shovel cannot
rotate
Water temperature in
inner tank is too low.
The ice making cycle
appears to be normal
but no ice is being
produced.
The ice cubes are too
small.
The refrigerant may be
leaking.
A pipe in the cooling
system may be
blocked.
Ambient temperature
or water temperature
in inner tank is too
high.
The ambient
temperature or water
temperature may be
too high.
The compressor may
need to warm up.
Solution
Remove ice from the
basket.
Check if ice cubes are
blocking the ice shovel;
otherwise, consult a
certified technician to
check the motor and
microswitch.
Consult a qualified
technician to check the
sensor or change to a
new one.
Stop the ice makerand
allow ice block to melt.
Select smaller size and
restart.
Change the water in the
inner tank. Temperature
of water is best between
45°F - 90°F.
Consult a qualified
technician.
Consult a qualified
technician.
Please run the ice maker
below 90°F and pour
colder water into the
tank.
Select large sized ice
cubes by pressing the
“SELECT” button.
If this is the first time the
unit is being used, allow
the ice maker to cycle a
few times. This should
result in larger cubes.
NEWAIR AI-215 SERIES PORTABLE ICE MAKER

Problem
The ice has a “plastic”
taste.
Possible Cause
The unit’s interior may
need to be cleaned.
The unit produces a
large block of ice instead
of cubes.
The ambient
temperature may be
too low.
The ice cubes have a
cloudy appearance.
There may be trace
minerals in your water
or ice is being
produced too quickly.
Solution
Add a tablespoon of
lemon juice or vinegar to
a full tank of water and
allow the ice maker to
cycle a few times.
Unplug the unit and let
the ice thaw out. Allow
the ice maker to defrost
for a few hours and
restart the unit.
Ice cubes may develop
cloudiness when water is
frozen quickly. As ice
develops on the surface
of water, certain gases
can no longer remain
dissolved and begin to
surface as microscopic
bubbles. This cloudiness
is normal.
