Pre-Installation Considerations
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Location
IMPROPER CONNECTION OF THE EQUIPMENT
GROUNDING CONDUCTOR CAN RESULT IN A
RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK.
The unit may be closed in on the top, rear and both
sides, but the front must be unobstructed for air circulation and proper operation. Installation should be as
such that the cabinet can be moved forward for servicing, if necessary.
DO NOT USE A TWO PRONG ADAPTER.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD.
The installation site should be well ventilated with the
temperature above 55°F (13°C) and below 110°F
(43°C). The best results are obtained between 70°F
(21°C) and 90°F (32°C).
DO NOT HAVE A FUSE IN THE NEUTRAL OR
GROUNDING CIRCUIT.
DO NOT CONNECT TO ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
UNTIL APPLIANCE IS PERMANENTLY GROUNDED.
The unit must be installed in an area protected from the
elements, such as wind, rain, water spray or drip.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS
CAN RESULT IN FIRE, ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR
DEATH.
Provision for electricity, water and drain should be
determined.
Electrical Connection

Installation of Line Tapping Device and/or Shut-off
Valve
Water Connection Requirements
Materials needed for installation:
1/4-in. O.D. copper tubing
1/4-in. outlet, saddle-type shut-off valve
(Part No. 4378392)
1/4-in. x 1/4-in. tube union
(Part No. 4378972)
1. Select the point on an active cold water supply line
convenient to the unit where connection is to be
made. A point on a vertical section of 1/2-in. or 3/4in. line leading to the kitchen sink is ideal. If
installed on a horizontal line, place valve on top or
side of line; never on bottom. (This will keep water
away from the drill during installation and helps normal sediment from collecting in the valve.) Turn off
the water supply and clear line of pressure.
These materials can be obtained locally or from your
FSP Parts Distributor by ordering Ice Maker Installation
Kit No. 978567, which includes 25 feet of copper tubing.
Do not use plastic tubing because it becomes brittle
with aging.
2. Provide a length of 1/4-in. O.D. copper tubing for
connecting the ice maker to the water supply. To
determine the length, measure distance from the
unit to the connecting point on supply line, and add
approximately three feet to allow for connection to
the water valve in the unit. Be sure both ends of
copper tubing are cut square.
Make sure the saddle valve complies with local plumbing codes. Do not use a self-piercing type or 3/16-inch
saddle valve because they reduce water flow and clog
more easily.
For proper operation, the ice maker should be connected to an active water supply line delivering cold water
at pressures between 20 and 120 pounds per square
inch. (See Figure 2-2)
3. Drill a 1/8-in. hole in water supply line at point
selected for making connection. Care must be
taken to drill a clean hole perpendicular to wall of
supply line. Be sure electric drill is grounded, or
use a hand drill to avoid shock.
Do not install copper tubing in an area where
temperatures drop below freezing. To do so
may result in water damage.
Vertical
Cold Water
Pipe
4. Be sure the shut-off valve is in the OFF position.
Turn clockwise until the stem is seated.
5. Assemble shut-off valve and pipe clamp and mount
it on the supply line. The inlet tube of the shut-off
valve must extend through the rubber washer and
into the 1/8-in. hole drilled in the line. Tighten the
packing nut. Tighten the clamp screws just enough
for the rubber gasket to ensure a watertight seal.
Clamping too tightly may crush the copper tubing.
USE ONLY
1/4” COPPER
TUBE TO
SHUT-OFF
VALVE
6. Slip the compression nut, and then the sleeve, on
the end of the 1/4-in. tubing. Insert the end of the
tube into the outlet end of the shut-off valve as far
as it will go, then screw the compression nut onto
the shut-off valve enough to get a watertight seal.
Place the other end in a sink drain or bucket.

NOTE: Make sure there is a vigorous flow of water
(volume and pressure).
8. Bend the tubing to run it to the installation location.
Position the tubing so it can enter the access hole
located in the right rear of the ice maker cabinet.
The tubing will extend beyond the cabinet front
when the cabinet is pushed back into position.

Drain Connection Requirements
RIGHT END VIEW
The ice maker has a gravity drain. The ideal installation
has a standpipe (1-1/4-in. minimum) installed directly
below the outlet of the drain tube. (See Figure 2-3 and
Figure 2-4)

Because the drainage water will probably be very cold,
it may be desirable to insulate the drain standpipe thoroughly up to the drain inlet to minimize condensation on
the drain standpipe.

When a drain connection below the ice maker is not
available, a pump may be used to lift the water to an
available drain.

Condensate Pump Kit No. 759064 is no longer available as a service replacement. If a replacement is
needed, purchase a reliable condensate pump locally
and install Part No. 759014 shunt plug into the ice
machine pump receptacle. The condensate pump can
be installed on the floor directly behind the unit where it
is installed. Install the pump with the discharge tube to
the rear. Run a 5/8-in. I.D. plastic tube from the bin
drain directly into the pump inlet.

1-1/2”
The pump recommended for use with an undercounter
or freestanding ice maker is a pressure activated, high
speed pump which will lift water (from melting ice and
fill cycles) to a place where it can be disposed of.
Figure 2-4. Drain Tube Location
The drain pump has a
pressure switch that
cycles its pump.
The pump installs in the compartment below the ice
maker storage bin and operates on 120VAC 60Hz current. It receives the AC power from a receptacle that is
shunted except when the pump is present. Remove the
shunt, and plug pump into receptacle.
Add 5/8” I.D.
plastic hose from
drain pump to
drain bin outlet.
To drain
The pump connects directly to the drain stub of the storage bin. As the sealed chamber of the pump fills, the
pressure from the water actuates the pressure switch,
and causes the pump to run and pump water from the
chamber. (See Figure 2-5)
Power cord hole
Water exits through the tube leading to the drain and is
prevented from re-entering the chamber by a check
valve in the output fitting on the pump.
Water line hole
Figure 2-5. Condensate Pump
The impeller rotates at 3000RPM in a molded housing
designed to prevent cavitation.
The pump is a sealed unit that depends on the weight
of the water accumulating in the drain from the storage
bin to activate it. Make sure pump chamber and lid are
sealed to prevent water leakage, and that all connections are water tight.

How It Works (Continued)
Up &
Out to
Drain
When the pump is in harvest cycle, the electric circuit
bypasses the pump pressure switch, and the pump runs
continuously.
T
At all other times, regardless of any other switch setting
or condition, the pump is on line and will run when the
pressure switch closes.
1P
1V
If pump should fail to run when the pressure switch
closes, it interrupts the circuit to the fill valve so that no
additional water can enter. It also interrupts the circuit
to the hot gas defrost solenoid. (See Figure 2-6 and
Figure 2-7)
Check

In Fitting
Run the condensate pump power cord through the hole
in the wall and into the unit compartment. Inside the
unit compartment, remove the shunt from the receptacle and plug in the condensate pump. (See Figure 2-8)

NOTE: Do not discard the shunt that is removed from
the receptacle. This shunt must be replaced if the unit
is to be operated later without a condensate pump.
Tape shunt to wall of unit compartment to avoid loss.
Run the discharge line from the pump directly to the
available drain. The FSP condensate pump has a
check valve located in the discharge outlet valve.

Other non-FSP sump pumps may be used with the ice
maker. These pumps are usually located near the
available drain. Run a 5/8-in. I.D. plastic tube from the
drain bin to the pump and a plastic hose from the discharge outlet of the pump into the available drain. If the
pump does not have a check valve on the discharge
outlet valve, one should be installed on the outlet tube.
The sump pump will be plugged into an available power
supply near the drain. A pressure switch inside the
pump will operate the pump as needed, independently
of the ice maker operation. The shunt remains in place
in the receptacle of the unit when a non-FSP sump
pump is used.

Installing the Unit
Screws
1. Lay carton on its rear face and break open the bottom flaps.
2. Set the carton upright with all four flaps outward.
To avoid damage to the finished floor when the unit
is installed, or if the unit needs to be removed for
service purposes, the finished floor should be protected with appropriate material.
Figure 2-9. Grille Removal
3. Lift carton up and off of unit.
4. Remove all of the packing tape and packaging
material from the outside and inside of the cabinet.
5. Remove the lower panel and grille by removing the
two securing screws at the bottom of the grille, and
pulling the lower panel assembly down and outward. (See Figure 2-9)
6. Reach into the unit compartment and turn the fan
by hand to make certain it moves freely.
7. Inside the bin, loosen the thumbscrews holding the
cutter grid and the water reservoir pan until they are
just thumb tight. (See Figure 2-10 and Figure 2-11)
8. Carefully move the ice maker into the installation
location, pulling the water supply line through the
hole in the rear. The water line will project through
the front of the unit after the ice maker is pushed
into position.
9. Check that the unit is level from side to side by
placing a level across the top of the cabinet.
10. If necessary, the ice maker should be shimmed so
that it is solid as well as level. Use a hard, permanent material, such as Masonite, for shims.
11. If the ice maker is installed under a counter top, a
custom Trim Kit, Part No. 819421 for the sides and
top is available from your FSP parts distributor.
12. After the ice maker is in place, bend the water supply tubing to meet the connection at the water inlet
valve. It may be necessary to trim the excess
length of tubing. Use the garden hose threaded
compression fitting supplied with the ice maker to
connect the water supply line to the unit.

Model 506 (UC Ice Maker)
Thermostat Calibrations
If the ice maker is installed in a location over 2000 feet
above sea level, the bin and evaporator thermostats
must be adjusted to compensate for the altitude.
On the control panel, under the escutcheon, on some
models of ice makers, there will be access holes to the
altitude adjustment control for each thermostat; and a
label with adjustment instructions will be on the front of
the control panel.
On other units, it will be necessary to remove the thermostats to make the adjustments and to read the
instructions stamped onto the thermostat housing.
NOTE: Make altitude adjustments on the thermostats
only to correct for the proper altitude of installation. Do
not make altitude adjustments on the thermostats to
correct other operational problems with the unit.
Water Deflector Installation
If the ice maker is installed aboard a ship, or a recreational vehicle where it will be operating while the RV is
moving, it is necessary to purchase and install a Water
Deflector Kit, Part No. 702354* from your FSP parts
Distributor.
Water Deflector
*The # 702354 water deflector kit is no longer used in
production and is not available as a service part.
Water Reservoir
The water deflector hangs in front of the evaporator and
keeps water flowing over the evaporator from spilling
into the storage bin area.
Figure 2-16. Water Deflector
Starting Up the Unit
Before using the ice maker, the consumer should wash
out the bin area with a baking soda solution (2 tablespoons of soda to a quart of warm water). Then rinse
thoroughly.
Make sure water supply and electric power is turned on.
Turn the service control switch to the “ON” position.
Allow the ice maker to run 3 hours before expecting ice,
and 24 hours before trying to adjust thickness control.
The ice maker has been factory set to produce ice
approximately 1/2-in. thick while operating in a room
ambient temperature of 70°F (21°C). Operation in different room ambient temperature may require adjusting
the ice thickness control.
The best and most efficient operation of the unit will be
obtained when the ice is manufactured between 1/2-in.
and 5/8-in. thick.

OFF
ON
It is necessary to periodically clean the units water system to remove the mineral scale build-up. The frequency of cleaning will depend on the hardness of the water.
To clean the water system:
1. Set the service control switch to the “OFF” position.
2. Open the bin door and remove the thumbscrews
that secure the ice cutter grid. Slide out the cutter
grid, and disconnect the grid wiring harness.
Cutter Grid
Figure 2-17. Water Deflector
If there is ice on the cutter grid, melt it off under
running warm water in sink. DO NOT try to pick
the ice off the grid wires. Attempting to pick the
ice slab off the cutter grid may stretch and damage grid wires.
3. Remove all of the ice from the bin and from the
evaporator freezing plate.
4. Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the water
reservoir pan. When the pan is completely drained,
replace drain plug.
5. Pour 1/2-gallon (approximately 2 liters) of hot tap
water into the water reservoir pan. Turn the service
control switch to the “CLEAN” position. Allow the
hot water to circulate for 5 minutes. This will warm
the system and make the cleaning solution more
effective.
6. While the hot water is circulating, prepare the ice
maker cleaning solution.

Using a Commercially Prepared Cleaning Solution
Commercially prepared liquid ice machine cleaning
solutions are available from refrigeration and plumbing
supply houses.
WHEN USING A COMMERCIALLY PREPARED LIQUID CLEANING SOLUTION, USE ONLY A CITRIC
ACID BASED SOLUTION, OR A COMBINATION OF
CITRIC ACID AND PHOSPHORIC ACID BASED
SOLUTION. DO NOT USE MURATIC ACID OR ANY
OTHER ACID NOT APPROVED FOR USE IN A
FOOD MACHINE.
Carefully follow the instructions on the bottle of ice
maker cleaner to prepare 1/2 gal. (approx. 2 liters) of
cleaning solution.
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 physician immediately. In case of contact with skin, rinse well with
water. If swallowed, give large amounts of water
and contact a physician immediately. Do not
induce vomiting. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
11. Clean the scale off the side flanges of the evaporator freezing plate with a plastic scrubber dipped into
the prepared cleaning solution.
Always scrub in the direction of water flow (from
front to back on the side of the plate).
12. After draining out the cleaning solution from the
water reservoir pan, add 1/2 gal. of fresh water and
allow it to circulate for 5 minutes. Drain, and repeat
the rinsing process at least one more time.
13. Wash out the bin and inside the bin door with a soft
cloth and a warm water and baking soda solution.
14. Clean the exterior enamel surfaces and the gaskets
around the door with warm water and a mild soap
or detergent. Rinse and dry after washing.
DO NOT use a harsh or abrasive cleaner on the
exterior surfaces.
Use a good household appliance wax will help protect the exterior finish of the ice maker.
15. Replace the cutter grid. Make certain the drain plug
has been replaced in the bottom of the water reservoir pan. Turn the service control to the “ON” position and begin normal operation of the ice maker.
7. Turn the service control to the “OFF” position.
Drain the hot tap water from the water reservoir
pan. Replace drain plug when the pan is empty.
8. Turn the service control to the “CLEAN” position.
Carefully pour the entire 1/2 gal. of cleaning solution into the water reservoir pan.
If the cleaning solution starts to foam when it is
poured into the pan, stop pouring until foaming
stops, then resume pouring.
9. Allow the cleaning solution to circulate until the mineral build-up on the evaporator plate has dissolved.
If at the end of 30 minutes the mineral build-up has
still not dissolved, turn the service control to the
“OFF” position, and carefully drain out the cleaning
solution. Mix another 1/2 gal. of solution and add
as before.
10. While the cleaning solution is circulating, clean the
cutter grid by dipping it in a pan of prepared cleaning solution.
After allowing the grid to soak for approximately 15
minutes, use a hard bristled brush to scrub the wire
connectors and insulators around the edge of the
grid.

Theory of Operation
Model 506 (UC Ice Maker)
OPERATING SYSTEMS
• Suction Line: The cool gas travels through the suction line which is also partially wrapped with the capillary tube. As this cool refrigerant gas travels through
the suction line it too absorbs heat from the warm liquid refrigerant traveling through the capillary tube.
This assures that it is a luke warm gas before it
enters the compressor, where the process begins
again.
There are three operating systems in the icemaker:
• Refrigeration System
• Water System
• Electrical System
Refrigeration System
NOTE: There is an additional component in the ice
maker refrigeration system which is used during the
harvest cycle, this component is called the hot gas
valve. Its function is described below:
The following components have been listed in the order
of refrigerant flow, with an explanation of their function
as part of the refrigeration system. (See Figure 3-1)
• Compressor: The compressor creates a high side
and low side pressure difference in the refrigeration
system by compressing the refrigerant gas, thus raising the pressure and temperature. During the ice
making cycle the compressor pushes this high-pressure/high-heat gas to the condenser.
• Condenser: The high-pressure/high-heat gas travels
through the condenser, where heat is dissipated by
cooler air being drawn over the condenser tubing by
the condenser fan. This changes the gas into a highpressure/warm liquid that then enters the filter-drier.
• Filter-Drier: The high-pressure/warm liquid travels
through the filter-drier, which removes moisture from
the refrigerant before it enters the capillary tube.
• Capillary Tube: The warm liquid refrigerant travels
through a skinny capillary tube which is wrapped
around the suction line and accumulator. As warm
liquid refrigerant travels through the capillary tube, it
gives up heat to the cool vapor refrigerant in the
accumulator and to the cool refrigerant gas traveling
through the suction line. As refrigerant in the capillary
tube gives up heat, the pressure drops, so it is a lowpressure/cool liquid before it enters the evaporator.
• Evaporator: A dramatic pressure drop occurs as the
low-pressure/cool liquid refrigerant leaves the small
diameter capillary tube and enters the larger diameter
evaporator tubing, and the refrigerant begins to
vaporize. This vapor travels through the evaporator
absorbing heat from the water being sprayed on the
evaporator. This cool vapor then enters the accumulator.
• Accumulator: Another pressure drop occurs as the
cool vaporized refrigerant leaves the evaporator tubing and enters the larger diameter accumulator tubing. Any liquid or vaporized refrigerant that may
remain at this point is converted to gas. The capillary
tube is wrapped around the accumulator to give up
heat to the refrigerant in the accumulator before it
enters the suction line.
• Hot Gas Valve: During a harvest cycle, the hot gas
valve interrupts the flow of high-pressure/ high-heat
gas from the compressor, diverting it past the condenser, filter-drier and capillary tube, directly to the
evaporator. This high-pressure/high-heat gas warms
the evaporator so that the ice slab releases from the
evaporator.

Theory of Operation

Refrigeration Flow - Ice Making Cycle
During the later stages of the ICE MAKING cycle, as
the ice slab forms on the evaporator freezing plate,
some of the refrigerant passing through the evaporator
will not evaporate into a gas, but will remain a liquid.
This liquid refrigerant will settle in the accumulator while
the refrigerant gas will be sucked off through the suction tube at the top of the accumulator. This accumulated liquid refrigerant will be evaporated eventually by the
warmed refrigerant gas passing through the accumulator during the HARVEST cycle and during the beginning
of the next ICE MAKING cycle.
In the refrigeration system, (See Figure 3-2) the hot
gas refrigerant, under high pressure, is forced through
the condenser where heat is removed. The refrigerant
is condensed to a liquid, then flows through the drier
and capillary tube into the evaporator. Under low pressure in the evaporator, the liquid refrigerant absorbs
heat from the water flowing over the evaporator. The
refrigerant evaporates into a gas and passes into the
accumulator. As a low pressure gas, the refrigerant
flows back through the heat exchanger and suction
tube to the compressor.
NOTE: It is very important the accumulator is not tilted
out of a horizontal position.
During ICE MAKING cycle, some of the hot gas that is
in the condenser accumulating tube condenses to a liquid and remains in the accumulating tube.

Refrigeration Flow - Harvest Cycle
In the refrigeration system, (See Figure 3-3) the hot gas valve opens, allowing high pressure refrigerant gas to
bypass the condenser and flow through the condenser accumulating tube. The hot gas pushes the liquid refrigerant
that has accumulated in the accumulator tube up into the evaporator. The warmed liquid refrigerant helps to evenly
heat the evaporator plate so the ice slab releases quickly and evenly.

As the ice slab forms, the minerals in the water are on
the surface of the ice. The water flowing over the top of
the ice slab washes these minerals back into the water
reservoir pan. The water continues to recycle until the
ice slab reaches the desired thickness.

Harvest Cycle
The ice slab, when released, slides off of the evaporator plate onto the cutting grid, where it begins to be divided into
individual cubes that fall into the bin. (See Figure 3-7 and Figure 3-8)
In the water system, the water valve opens allowing water to flow into the water reservoir pan. As the reservoir fills,
the mineral laden water from the previous ICE MAKING cycle is flushed out to the drain. (See Figure 3-9)

Clean Cycle
In the water system, the water pump circulates the cleaning solution that has been added to the reservoir up to the
distributor, across the evaporator, and back into the reservoir where it is recirculated while the service control switch
is in the “CLEAN” position. (See Figure 3-10)

RECOMMENDATIONS
Water softeners and polyphosphate feeders are not cure-alls, but do reduce (and in some cases, prevent) scale
buildup. They are particularly effective in controlling sulfate scale, which is rocklike and can be removed only
by sanding, scraping or chiseling.
CAUTION: Some polyphosphate feeders cause slime buildup, so their use in low mineral content water should
be carefully considered.
When the ice slab takes too long to divide into cubes because the water supply has a high mineral content, a special
replacement transformer (Part No. 2165483) is available from your FSP parts distributor. This transformer has a
selectable 11-volt tap that will increase the heat of the cutter grid wires, helping to divide the ice slab into cubes
faster.
Also, a service replacement flow washer (Part No. 588930) for the water inlet valve is available from your FSP parts
distributor. This flow washer will increase the flow of water supply during the HARVEST cycle, helping to wash out
the accumulated minerals in the water reservoir.

LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
The evaporator thermostat capillary bulb is attached
to the underneath side of the evaporator plate. At least
8 inches of the thermostat capillary bulb must be bent
into an 'M* shape and attached tight against the bracket
on the bottom side of the evaporator plate.
The capillary tube of the refrigeration sealed system
is soldered directly against the front edge of the evaporator plate. This prevents the ice slab from forming a
lip over the edge.
Evaporator
At least one inch of the thermostat capillary bulb should
be taped to the refrigeration system capillary tube at
the front edge of the evaporator plate. This helps to
shorten the HARVEST cycle.
Thumbscrew
The upper surface, and side flanges, of evaporator
freezing plate must be free of mineral build-up, and be
smooth and even. A nick or scratch could cause the ice
slab to hang up during the HARVEST cycle.
If evaporator plate is cleaned with a plastic scrubber,
always scrub in the direction of water flow (front to
back). If plate is scratched during cleaning, it will not
hinder the ice slab from sliding off. The evaporator plate
can be dropped for better access.

3. Remove the thumb screws on the side brackets at
the front of the evaporator plate.
4. Carefully pull the evaporator forward and down.
Be careful not to bend or kink the attached tubing.
The evaporator can be pulled forward to the front
of the bin area where the unit compartment is
pulled forward.
Plastic side brackets are attached to the front of each
side of the evaporator freezing plate with thumb screws.
(See Figure 4-15)
The brackets support the cutter grid, the water reservoir, and the evaporator.
NOTE: If a component in the refrigeration sealed system must be replaced, it is necessary to use an

Component Access & Removal Model 506 (UC Ice Maker)
Condenser
Condenser
The condenser is attached to the base assembly with
screws that pass through the condenser base then are
secured to the unit area base. The condenser fan
shroud is attached to the back of the condenser with
screws passing through the shroud into the rear side
flanges of the condenser. The inlet port of the condenser is attached to the compressor discharge line. The
condenser outlet leads to the high-side filter-drier.
To access the condenser, pull out the unit compartment
to access the sealed system components.
1. Extract screws securing the front deflector to the
side of the condenser.
2. Extract screws securing the fan shroud to the back
of the condenser.
3. Before removing the condenser, capture the refrigerant from the sealed system.
4. Then, cut the compressor discharge line and drier
inlet line approximately one inch from the condenser inlet and outlet ports.
5. Lift the condenser off of the base assembly. (See
Figure 4-24)

NOTE: It is not recommended to sweat tubing apart.
Doing so will induce moisture into the sealed system.

Leads
Hot Gas Valve
Valve Body
The hot gas valve must be installed vertically as the
valve uses a free plunger that seats by gravity. This
plunger must seat properly for efficient operation of the
ice maker. (See Figure 4-25)
Filter-Drier
If there is a small leak in the valve, the outlet tube from
the valve will feel cold, and may frost up, during the ICE
MAKING cycle. This is caused by the small leak acting
as an orifice for the refrigerant gas.
If there is a medium size leak in the valve, the outlet
tube from the valve will feel warm during the ICE MAKING cycle.
If the outlet tube from the valve is hot during the ICE
MAKING cycle, the hot gas valve is stuck open.
To check:
1. With wire leads removed, use an ohmmeter set on
the R x 100 scale.
2. Check across terminals. the ohmmeter should read
approximately 250 ohms.
3. Attach a 120-volt test cord to the terminals. When
power is supplied to the valve an audible click
should be heard.
#3752200 - Revision B - May, 2006
Figure 4-25. Hot Gas Valve Components
To remove:
1. Before removing the hot gas valve, capture refrigerant from the sealed system.
2. Disconnect coil harness from solenoid.
3. Extract screw from top of solenoid.
4. With a file, score a line around capillary tubes 1” or
less from valve inlet and outlet tubes, then fatigue
capillary tubes at these lines until they separate.
NOTE: Whenever servicing the sealed system, the filter-drier must be replaced.
NOTE: After capillary tube separates, check tubing for
internal burrs. If burrs exist, repeat step 1 above.
