[се Maker Safety
Before you plug it in
Your safety and the safety of others is very important.
“| We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your
| appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the
word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean:
You will be killed or seriously injured
A DAN С Е В if you don’t follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured
AWAR N | N С if you don’t follow instructions.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury,
and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
WARNING - To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when using your ice
maker, follow these basic precautions:
* Plug into grounded 3 prong outlet. e Disconnect power before cleaning.
* Do not remove ground prong. Disconnect power before servicing.
* Do not use an adapter. ® Replace all panels before operating.
* Do not use an extension cord. e Use two or more people to move or install
ice maker.
eneral Information
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and
install ice maker.
Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
. Lay carton on rear face and break open
bottom flaps.
2. Set carton upright with all four
flaps outward.
. Lift carton up and off of machine.
4. Remove all tape and packaging materi-
als from the outside and inside of the Remove
cabinet. interior
NOTE: The Installation Instructions are packing
located in a plastic bag inside the ice bin.
5. Remove the lower access panel by Open bottom flaps
removing the two screws securing the
grille at the bottom and the one screw at
the top, and lift it free of cabinet.
6. Turn the fan by hand to make certain it
moves freely.
7. Loosen thumb screws holding cutter grid
and water pan to “thumb tight.”
8. Replace the lower access panel and
the screws.
Utilities required
(observe local codes)
Each installation is unique but will require:
1. A cold water inlet of 14" (6 mm) OD soft
copper tubing and a shut-off valve.
Water Electricity Drain
continued on the next page
General Information
2. A properly grounded 115 Volt, 60 Hz,
AC only, 15 ampere fused electrical
circuit, installed in accordance with the
National Electrical Code and with local
codes and ordinances.
NOTE: For proper location, see the
Built-In Opening Dimensions diagram
on page 6.
3. Either a gravity drain system or a sump
pump to lift the water to an existing drain.
Thermostat calibrations
If ice maker is to be operated at an elevation
of 2,000 feet (600 m) or more above sea
level, both the Bin Thermostat and the Ice
Thickness Thermostat will need to be
recalibrated. Call your dealer or an autho-
rized service group to have the necessary
changes made.
Shipboard operation
When this ice maker is installed aboard a
ship, it may be necessary to purchase and
install a water deflector. The deflector hangs
between the lower edge of the evaporator
and the cutter grid. It keeps the water
flowing over the evaporator from spilling into
the storage bin area. Order the necessary
parts from your local ice maker dealer.
Locate unit
Place unit so the front side will be
completely unobstructed to provide
proper airflow.
. Area should be well ventilated with tem-
perature 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).
. Provisions for electricity, water, and
drain connections should be determined.
. The unit may be closed in on the top and
three sides, but the front must be unob-
structed for air circulation and proper
operation. Installation should be such
that the cabinet can be moved forward
for servicing, if necessary.
This unit
must be 90°F
installed in (32°C)
an area
from the 70°F
elements, (21°C)
such as wind,
rain, and
water spray
or drip.

Level unit
. After placing unit in position, check to
make certain the unit is level side-to-side
and front-to-back.
. Accurate leveling is essential for proper
. Unit should be shimmed so that it is solid
as well as level. The shims should be of
hard, permanent type material.
. If you are installing this ice maker in a
commercial setting that requires National
Sanitation Foundation (NSF) installation
procedures, NSF requires that the ice
maker be sealed to the floor at the bottom
rail. For compliance with this NSF sealing
procedure, we recommend a silicone-type
1 nstallation
Connect to water
(observe local codes)
Use 74" (6 mm) 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.
. Always purge the water line before
making the final connection to the inlet of
the water valve to prevent possible water
valve malfunction.
- Slide the cabinet into place, bringing the
tubing through the rear access hole. Bend
the tubing to meet the connection at the
water valve. The garden hose threaded
compression fitting is found in the parts
bag, which is shipped under the ice
scoop. This joint provides a convenient
disconnect for service. Be sure the tubing
is clear of compressor to prevent rattle.

‘Things to Remember
* Water enters only during the defrost cycle.
Therefore the first cycle will be completed
without water in the system.
* As the room and water temperatures vary,
so will the amount of ice produced. This
means that higher operating temperatures
will result in reduced ice production.
* The unit will shut off when ice in the
storage bin touches the bin thermostat
well and will automatically cycle to keep
the bin full.
* The storage bin is not refrigerated and
some melting will occur. This also varies
with the room temperature.
* The unit needs good air circulation to
perform efficiently. Keep the front grille and
the condenser clean.
e The water system needs to be cleaned
periodically for good circulation. Instruc-
tions are located in the Use and Care
How ihe Ice Maker Works
* Compressor runs
* Condenser fan runs
* Water pump runs (circulates water)
e Cutter grid is warm to touch
When the desired ice slab thickness is
reached, the harvest cycle begins and
the following happens:
es Evaporator thermostat is satisfied
* Compressor keeps running
* Condenser fan stops or turns very slowly
* Water pump stops
* Hot gas solenoid opens
e Water inlet valve opens
e Excess water is flushed out of the
drain pan
e Cutter grid is warm to the touch
NOTE: Normal harvest cycle takes 1 to
2 minutes.
Machine resumes freezing after slab is
released from evaporator and the cutting
process begins.
When the storage bin is filled, bin
thermostat opens.
* Cutter grid remains on
