Initial Start Up
1. Turn on the water supply.
2. Switch on the electrical power.
3. Push and release the On/Off switch to start the machine. The Ice Making light next to the On/Off switch will glow
Blue.

Warm air will flow out of the left front grill. It will take about 10 minutes for the ice machine to begin dropping nugget
ice into the storage bin. It is normal for that ice to melt and ice will continue to melt, but at a slower rate. It will take
about 6 - 7 hours to fill up the ice storage bin. The bin holds about 20 lb of ice when full.
Ice level control
The ice level control is an ultrasonic sensor, located above the ice storage area. It is automatic and there is no
adjustment to make. When ice melts or is used, and the ice level drops below a preset distance the control turns the
ice making system back on. It makes ice until the preset level is reached. Placing your hand in the unit to remove ice
does not affect the ice level.
Using Your Ice Machine
No special instructions are needed for use. Just take as much ice as you need, the machine will replace it. A scoop is
provided, and it can be stored in the machine using the loop of tubing on the right side as a holder.
The machine can be shut off anytime by just pushing and releasing the ON/OFF button. During the ice making,
nugget ice will drop into the bin at an irregular rate. Sometimes there will be little ice fallilng while at other times, a
group of nuggets will fall. Some water drops may also come out with the ice. Both conditions are normal.
It is designed to operate in wide range of air temperatures:
-Minimum air temperature: 50 degrees F.
-Maximum air temperature: 100 degrees F.
Although the machine will function within the listed ranges, it works best at water temperatures between 50 and 60 and
air temperatures between 60 and 80.
Note: Ice making capacity goes down as the environmental temperatures go up, and will be severely reduced at
temperatures over 90oF.
Operating a unit outside of the limits can cause problems that are not covered by the warranty and, if extreme, cause
damage to the unit.
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice. Objects like wine or beer bottles are not only unsanitary, but
the labels can slip off and plug up the drain.
Never allow the machine to operate without regular cleaning. The machine will last longer if it is kept clean. Regular
cleaning should happen at least once per year, and preferably twice. Some water conditions will dictate even more
frequent cleaning of the ice making section, and some carpets or pets will dictate more frequent cleaning of the
condenser.
Note: The Time to Clean light will switch ON after 6 months of use. It will remain ON until the ice making system is
cleaned using the process in the “How to clean the condenser and winterize” section.
Noise
The ice machine is designed for quiet operation, but will make some noise during the ice making cycle.

Using Your Ice Machine
(con’t)
OUTDOOR USE
Keep from freezing. Severe damage will occur to the unit if left in or operated in temperatures beyond the limits listed
in this manual. That damage is NOT covered by warranty.
Keep dry. Do not locate in low lying areas where puddles will accumulate.
Provide Shade: Heat gain from the sun will reduce the unit’s ability to make and store ice, and ultraviolet radiation from
the sun can potentially damage the unit’s plastic components.
Water Supply: Avoid a long run of hose or tubing exposed to the sun. Plastic water supply tubing should be rated for
potable water and include UV protection. Copper tubing is recommended.
Back Flow Prevention: The unit includes back flow prevention, no additional check valve is required.
Drainage: Do Not drain into swimming pool or onto grounds.
WATER QUALITY
The water to the machine must be potable, or fit for human consumption. Beyond that, water supplies vary in the
degree of mineral content. As this ice machine makes ice, all the water that flows into the machine is changed into ice.
That includes any minerals that might be in the water. However, during ice making some minerals will stick to the ice
making components. The higher the mineral content, the more mineral build up will occur. Water
filters are a partial help, as they will remove the suspended solids, but water treatment is needed for the dissolved
solids, which are part of the water and cannot be filtered out.
RO Water
This machine can be supplied with Reverse Osmosis water, but the water conductivity must be no less than 10
microSiemens/cm. A reverse osmosis system should include post treatment or blending to satisfy the R.O. water’s
potential aggressiveness.
Deionized water is not recommended and could damage the machine.
Because water softeners exchange one mineral for another, softened water may not improve water conditions when
used with ice machines
Maintenance
We strongly recommend regular maintenance of this ice machine. During normal operation mineral scale that is in the
water supply will gradually build up on the ice making surfaces. That build up can cause excessive loading of the ice
making system, which can cause premature failure. Regular removal of the mineral scale will lengthen the product’s life.
Suggested maintenance schedule: every 6 months.
Type of maintenance: Scale removal, water seal check, water reservoir check, bin drain check, air cooled condenser
cleaning and storage bin sanitation.

3. Turn off the water supply.
4. Remove the back wall of the ice storage bin.
5. Remove the drain plug and drain water reservoir. Return plug to its original position.
6. Drain pump models should have about 1/2 gallon of RV antifreeze (propylene glycol) poured into the ice storage bin
drain.
Note: Automotive antifreeze must NOT be used.
7. Switch off and unplug the machine.
How to remove scale from the ice making system.
Cleaning this machine involves adding a solution of scale remover and water to the ice machine and continuing to add
it as it makes ice. The scale remover must be diluted to the correct ratio. A squirt bottle will make adding the scale
remover much easier when the unit is built in. If not built in, remove the top panel for reservoir access.
Recommended tools: Rubber gloves, squirt bottle & scale remover.
