Cleaning Before Use
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside
of your ice maker before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
the "Ice Maker Care" section.
(38.1 cm)
To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front side
must be completely unobstructed. The unit may be closed-in
on the top and three sides, but the installation should allow
the ice maker to be pulled forward for servicing if necessary.
Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet
of Y4" (6.35 mm) OD soft copper tubing with a shutoff valve
and either a gravity-drain system or condensate pump to
carry the water to an existing drain.
Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F
(13°C) and below 110°F (43°C). Best results are obtained
between 70°F (21 °C) and 90°F (32°C).
This unit must be installed in an area protected from the
elements, such as wind, rain, water spray, or drip.
A. Recommended location for electrical
and plumbing fixtures
B. Floor level
You should choose a location where the floor is even. It is
important for the ice maker to be level in order to work
properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of the ice maker
by changing the height of the leveling legs. See "Leveling."
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
•
Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
•
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.

fire, or electrical shock.
can result in death,
Before you move your ice maker into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection:
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply,
properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical
Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice
maker, be provided. Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off
by a switch or pull chain.
IMPORTANT: If this product is connected to a GFCI (Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter) protected outlet, nuisance tripping of the
power supply may occur, resulting in loss of cooling. Ice quality
may be affected. If nuisance tripping has occurred, and if the
condition of the ice appears poor, dispose of it.
Recommended
grounding
It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work
properly. Depending upon where you install the ice maker, you
may need to make several adjustments to level it. You may also
use the leveling legs to lower the height of the ice maker for
undercounter installations.
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.

method
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 the National Electrical
Code and local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle
is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to
have a properly grounded, 3 prong wall receptacle installed by a
qualified electrician.
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If
you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of a
reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the ice
maker needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
The reverse osmosis system must provide 1 gal. (3.79L) of water
per hour to the ice maker for proper ice maker operation.

2.
Find a 1/2"(12.70 mm) to 11/4'' (3.18 cm) vertical cold water
pipe near the ice maker.
NOTE: Horizontal pipe will work, but the following procedure
must be followed: Drill on the top side of the pipe, not the
bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill. This
also keeps normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
3.
Using a grounded drill, drill a 1/4"(6.35 mm) hole in the cold
water pipe you have selected.
4.
Fasten shutoff valve to cold water pipe with pipe clamp. Be
sure outlet end is solidly in the 1/4"(6.35 mm) drilled hole in the
water pipe and that the washer is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws carefully
and evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Do not
overtighten the pipe clamp or you may crush cold water pipe
if it is soft copper tubing. Do not use a piercing-type or 3/16"
(4.76 mm) saddle-type valve which reduces water flow and
clogs more easily.

Gravity Drain System
Connecting
Connect the ice maker drain to your drain in accordance with all
state and local codes and ordinances. If the ice maker is
provided with a gravity drain system, follow these guidelines
when installing drain lines. This will help keep water from flowing
back into the ice maker storage bin and potentially flowing onto
the floor causing water damage.
•
the Drain
After ensuring that the drain system is adequate, follow these
steps to properly place the ice maker:
Drain lines must have a minimum of %" (15.88 mm) inside
diameter.
Drain lines must have a 1" drop per 48" (2.54 cm drop per
122 cm) of run or 1/4"drop per 12" (6.35 mm per 30.48 cm) of
run and must not have low points where water can settle.
Electrical
The floor drains must be large enough to accommodate
drainage from all drains.

Your new ice maker may make sounds that are not familiar to
you. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be
concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces such as floors, walls and cabinets can make the sounds
seem louder than they actually are. The following describes the
kinds of sounds that might be new to you and what may be
making them.

When you first start your ice maker, the water pan will fill and the
system will rinse itself before starting to make ice. The rinsing
process takes about 5 minutes.
Under normal operating conditions, the ice maker will cycle at
preset temperatures. The ice level sensor located in the ice
storage bin will monitor the ice levels.
IMPORTANT:
•
If the water supply to the ice maker is turned off, be sure to
set the ice maker control to OFF.
•
The ice maker is designed to make clear ice from the majority
of water sources on a daily basis. If your results are
unsatisfactory, your water may need to be filtered or treated.
[l(s
The Ice Making Process
f.
Water is constantly circulated over a freezing plate. As the
water freezes into ice, the minerals in the water are rejected.
This produces a sheet of ice with a low mineral content.
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.

Off Light
The off light blinks when service is needed. If the off light starts to
blink, turn the ice maker off and back on. If the off light continues
to blink, call for service.
Clean Light
The Clean light will help you know when it is time to clean your
ice maker. The light will change from green to yellow. This tells
you it is almost time to clean your ice maker. It is recommended
that you clean the ice maker when the status light changes to red
OR ice production decreases significantly. To clean your ice
maker, see "Ice Maker System."
ICE MAKERCARE
The ice making system and the air cooled condenser need to be
cleaned regularly for the ice maker to operate at peak efficiency
and to avoid premature failure of system components. See the
"Ice Maker System" and the "Condenser" sections.
Exterior Surfaces
Wash the exterior enamel surfaces and gaskets with warm water
and mild soap or detergent. Wipe and dry. Regular use of a good
household appliance cleaner and wax will help protect the finish.
Do not use abrasive cleaners on enamel surfaces as they may
scratch the finish.
For products with a stainless steel exterior, use a clean sponge or
soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use
abrasive or harsh cleaners. Do not use chlorine bleach on
stainless steel surfaces.
10
Ice Maker System
Minerals that are removed from water during the freezing cycle
will eventually form a hard scaly deposit in the water system.
Cleaning the system regularly helps remove the mineral scale
buildup. How often you need to clean the system depends upon
how hard your water is. With hard water of 15 to 20 grains/gal.
(4 to 5 grains/liter), you may need to clean the system as often as
every 6 months.
NOTE: Use one 16 oz (473 mL) bottle of approved ice maker
cleaner. To order, call 1-800-442-9991 and ask for Part Number
4396808. In Canada, call 1-800-807-6777.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.
Is the room temperature cooler than normal? Room
temperature must be above 55°F (13°C). Otherwise, bin
thermostat may sense cold room temperature and shut off
even though the bin is not full of ice. Also, unit may not restart
once it does shut off.
Your ice maker will not operate
Does the green light come on when the Clean button is
pushed? The ice maker is receiving power but may need
cleaning. See "Cleaning."
Does the ice maker have a drain pump? If there was a large
amount of water added to the ice maker, wait a few minutes
for the drain pump to clear. If there is still water in the bin,
check to see whether the drain hose is kinked.

from date of shipment by CORNELIUS. The obligation of CORNELIUS under this warranty is limited to repair or replacement (at the
option of CORNELIUS) FOB factory in Mason City, Iowa, of the part (or parts) of any Machine that is proven defective.
LIMITED LABOR WARRANTY PERIOD
In addition to the parts warranty, CORNELIUS will pay scheduled straight time labor to repair or replace a defective component when
