Set carton upright with all four flaps outward.
Lift carton up and off of machine.
Remove all tape and packaging material from the out- side and inside of the cabinet.
5. Remove the front lower access panel and grille area; take out the screws at the bottom and lift it free of cabinet.
6. Turn the fan by hand to make certain it moves freely.
OBSERVE LOCAL CODES s w
Place unit so that the front side will be completely unobstructed, to provide proper air flow.
Area should be well ventilated with temperature above 15°C (60°F). Best results are obtained between
21°C (70°F) and 32°C (90°F).
Provision for electricity, water and drain connec- tions should be determined.
The unit may be closed in on the top and three sides, but the front MUST BE unobstructed for air circulation and proper operation. Installation should be such that the cabinet can be moved forward for servicing, if necessary.
Each installation is unique but will require:
A cold water inlet of 6.35 mm (l/4”) OD soft copper tubing and a shut-off valve.
2. Either a gravity drain system or a sump pump to lift the water to an existing drain.
3. An electrical branch circuit of 220/240 Volt, 50 Hz, 1 phase, with a 10 Amp delayed action fuse.
OBSERVE LOCAL CODES
CONNECT TO WATER
Use 6.35 mm (l/4”) OD soft copper tubing for the cold water supply.
Provide a convenient manual shut-off valve in the water line.
Position the tubing so it can enter the access hole located in the right-hand rear of the cabinet. The tubing should extend beyond the cabinet front when the cabinet is pushed back into position.
See Figure 1.
NOTE: Always purge the water line before making the final connection to the inlet tube to prevent possible water valve malfunction.
After the cabinet is in place, bend the tubing to meet the connection at the water valve. This joint provides a convenient disconnect for service. Be sure the tubing is clear of compressor, to prevent rattle.

THINGS TO REMEMBER
The unit will make up to 25 kg. (55 Ibs.) of ice per day under ideal conditions. These conditions are: (1) Room temperature 21°C (70°F); (2) Water temperature 10°C
As the room and water temperatures vary, so will the amount of ice produced. Higher operating tempera- tures will result in reduced ice production.
The storage bin has a maximum capacity of 16 kg. (35
Ibs.). When the bin is filled, the unit stops making ice.
The storage bin is not refrigerated and some meltage will occur. This, too, varies with room temperature.
The unit needs good air circulation to perform effi- ciently. Keep the front grill and the condenser clean.
The water system, including filter screen in the water inlet solenoid valve, need to be cleaned periodically for good circulation. Instructions are located on the inner door panel.

ICE MAKER OPERATION
How it makes ice:
2. When the desired thickness is reached, the ice sheet is released and slides onto a cutter grid. The grid divides the sheet into individual cubes.
3. The water containing the rejected minerals is drained out at the end of each freezing cycle.
4. Fresh water then enters the machine for the next ice making cycle.
1. Water is circulated over a freezing plate. As the water freezes, minerals in the water are rejected. The absence of minerals produces a clear sheet of ice.
5. Cubes fall into the storage bin. When the bin is full the ice maker shuts off automatically and restarts when more ice is needed.
SIZING OF ICE CUBES
Your ice maker will produce 32 mm x 32 mm (1 l/4” x 1 W’) cubes or 19 mm x 19 mm (“A” x “W’) cubelets. Any time a change in cube size is desired, the cutting grid can be changed at a modest cost. See your dealer for more information.
Your ice maker has been pre-set to produce ice approx- imately 13 mm (l/2”) thick. The thickness can be in- creased or decreased by resetting the thickness control,
Figure 1, however best performance will be obtained at the 13 mm (l/2”) thickness.
FIGURE 1 - CONTROL SWITCHES
The “ON” position of the cycle control is for the normal ice making cycle. The “OFF” position stops machine op- eration. The “CLEAN” position is used whenever solu- tions are circulated through the water system for cleaning. At this position only the water pump will oper- ate.
IMPORTANT: In switch position “ON”, the cutter grid remains energized and placement of metal objects on grid wires can cause the grid fuse to open or can cause damage to grid wires. To completely deacti- vate all electrical circuits, the power supply must be disconnected.
FILTERING 81 TREATING WATER
In some areas it may be beneficial to filter or treat the water being supplied to the ice machine to reduce water system maintenance (see Cleaning 8 Sanitizing tll;J,“e Making System) and to produce the best type
For information on filtering and treating the water see your ice maker dealer.
All components of the ice maker are lubricated at the factory and should not require any additional oiling for the normal life of the machine.
GENERAL CARE & CLEANING
Periodic inspection and cleaning is necessary to keep your ice cube maker operating at peak efficiency and to assure a sanitary ice producing mechanism. Your dealer is well qualified to perform this service for you.
Use a vacuum cleaner and stiff brush to remove the dirt and accumulated lint from the condenser fins.
CAUTION: Avoid contact with air cooled condenser fins which may be sharp.
CLEANING EXTERIOR SURFACES
Enamel finishes may be cleaned with a mild deter- gent. Regular use of a good household appliance cleaner and wax is recommended for protecting the finish.
Stainless steel surfaces should be cleaned with a good stainless steel cleaner.
NOTE: Do not use abrasive cleaners on either painted or stainless surfaces.
CLEANING THE CONDENSER
Dirty or clogged condenser fins prevent proper air flow resulting in reduced ice capacity and subject the unit to higher than normal operating temperatures.
Access to the Condenser
Place cycle control in the “OFF” position.
NOTE: Failure to place switch in “OFF” position will allow condenser fan to cycle on and off which could cause injury when the front lower access panel is removed.
Remove screws from the bottom of the front lower access panel and grille assembly, Figure 2. Pull forward and down to remove the panel.
LOWER ACCESS PANEL
CLEANING & SANITIZING
THE ICE MAKING SYSTEM
Impurities are rejected from the circulating water that freezes into ice. These impurities collect on the freezing mechanism and in the water system and form a hard scaly deposit. Generally this scale prevents a rapid release of the ice slab during the harvest cycle. The water and ice making system, therefore, should be periodically cleaned and sanitized. The frequency of cleaning will depend on local water conditions and how rapidly scale accumu- lates.
Cleaning and sanitizing is not too difficult. Having a qualified service representative clean the system the first time should make subsequent cleaning easier to perform, if the operator wishes to take over this portion of the ice machine maintenance.
Follow this approved procedure to assure that the machine is clean and sanitary:
1. Place cycle control, Figure 1, in “OFF” position.
2. Remove cutter grid (two thumb screws), Figure 4. The grid slides off of two mounting tabs near the water pan.
3. Remove all ice from the storage bin and cutter grid.
Care should be exercised when removing ice off the cut- ter grid to prevent breaking or stretching of grid wires.
Running water on the ice sheet will rapidly melt the ice.
Ice may also have been forming on the freezing plate and should be removed before proceeding further.
4. Drain the water pan, Figure 5, by removing the rubber plug. Replace the plug.
REMOVAL AND CLEANING OF
Remove ice retainer baffle,
Remove water pan, (two thumb screws)
5. Pour 2 Liters (2 qts.) of hot water into the water pan and turn the cycle control to “CLEAN.” This step warms up the system and allows the cleaning solution to be more effective. Allow to circulate 5 minutes. Turn switch to “OFF” and drain.
6. Prepare the cleaning solution by thoroughly mixing
60 Gm. (2 oz.) of powdered citric acid or phosphoric acid into 2 Liters (2 qts.) of hot water. Commercial ice machine cleaners are also available in liquid form and should be mixed according to instructions on the label.
WARNING: Most ice machine cleaners are citric or phosphoric acid which can cause irritation even after dilution. In case of contact with eyes, flush eyes thoroughly with fresh water and contact a phy- sician immediately. In case of contact with skin, rinse well with water. If swallowed, give large amounts of water and contact a physician immedi- ately. Do not induce vomiting. KEEP OUT OF
REACH OF CHILDREN.
7. Pour cleaning solution into water pan and turn switch to ‘CLEAN.” If solution foams while pouring, stop until foaming subsides, then add balance of solution. Allow solution to circulate until scale has dissolved. The cir- culating solution may not contact scale on the side flanges of the freezing plate. To remove this scale use a stainless steel sponge or pad dipped in cleaning solution and scrub the side flanges until scale is removed. Gener- ally scale will be dissolved in 15 to 30 minutes. Severe scale formation may require repeating the cleaning proc- ess with a fresh quantity of solution if the scale has not dissolved after 30 minutes.
8. Turn switch to “OFF” and drain.
9. Follow cleaning with two fresh water rinses, circulate each rinse for 5 minutes and drain.
This completes the “in place” cleaning and sanitizing of the water system and freezing plate. Other interior components must also be cleaned and sanitized,
FLEXTO SLIDE -
13. Remove hose from the water pump.
14. Remove the plastic water distributor tube irom the freezing plate. Pull one end forward to release the rubber end plugs.
15. Wash the “interior” components with a mild detergent solution, rinse with clean water and sanitize in a solution of 30 Ml. (1 oz.) of common laundr bleach to 4 Liters (4 qts.) of water.
N ii TE: Plastic parts are not to be subjected to temperatures over 60°C (140°F). Do not wash in dishwasher.
16. Wash the storage bin, door, gasket and ice scoop with mild detergent, rinse with clean water and sanitize with the sanitizing solution (see Step 15).
17. Replace the water distributor, water pan, and cutter grid.
NOTE: Check the followina:
Hose from water valve i”s in water pan.
Cutter grid is electrically plugged in.
Rubber plug is in water pan.
Hose from water pan is inserted into drain opening.
WINTER SHUT DOWN
Remove all ice from storage bin. Shut off water supply. Disconnect lines at water valve and to drain.
Water and drain lines must be blown out if the unit will be subjected to freezing temperatures during shut down. Reconnect water and drain lines. Failure to do so may cause these lines to freeze and rupture.
Clean and sanitize the ice machine and storage bin before placing back in operation.
IF THE MACHINE DOES NOT PRODUCE ICE
Check the following before calling a serviceman:
1. Unit does not run -
A. Check for blown fuse in electrical supply to machine.
B. Is Power ON?
C. Switch must be in “ON” position.
D. Room temperature too low (must be above
15” C). Unit may be shut down on bin thermostat even though bin is not full.
2. Unit runs but produces no ice -
A. Check water supply to make sure it is open.
B. Cycle control must be in the “ON” position.
3. Unit runs but produces very little ice -
A. Operating in extremely high room temperature
(normal for ice production to be low).
B. Dirt or lint blocking air flow thru finned con- denser. (Clean)
C. Unit may have scale build up in water and freezing system. Check and clean if necessary.
4. Grid not cutting ice sheets-
A. Check grid fuse (see section on how to re- place).
B. Check grid harness plug to make sure the connection is secure.
If the above suggestions do not correct machine opera- tion, contact your dealer.
