I(it,h -mlqpam Automatic Ice Maker@ lMode’ KU’s’85S I’ CHANGING THE BIN DOOR AND LOWER PANEL The storage bin door and lower panel are designed to accept an optional decorative wood panel of your choice. DOOR BIN LOWER PANEL WOOD PANEL DIMENSIONS The wood panel should be no more than V4 inch (6 mm) thick. Cut it to the same size as the production metal panel. See Figure 1. To change the bin door panel: 1. Open the bin door. 2. Remove the two screws on top of the door which hold the handle. 3. Remove the handle. 4. Slide the metal panels out. 5. Break off the ribs on the door insulation for the wood thickness. See Figure 2. 6. Slide the wood panel into the door frame. 7. Replace handle and screws. - &l/4” 17-w # FIGURE 1 to allow To change the lower panel: 1. Remove the two screws at the bottom that hold the lower panel assembly to the ice maker. 2.

Disconnect remove thermostat and follow the electricity, directions for turning the altitude adjustment screw as shown in the label on each thermostat. SHIPBOARD OPERATION When this ice cube maker is installed aboard a ship, it will be necessary to purchase and install a water deflector. This 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. 2 GENERAL INFORMATION UNPACK l 2 Either a gravity drain system or a sump Ihe water lo an existing drain. 3 l OPEN BOTTOM FIGURE 1 Lay carton flaps FIGURE 2 Set carton upright See Figure 3. face and with all break four open flaps bottom outward.

REMOVE INTERIOR PACKING pump Compliance with National Sanitation Foundation standards require that this type of product be sealed to the floor at the bottom rail in order to prevent contamination from spills or the entrance of vermin. Therefore, we recommend that when installing this product you seal it to the floor in accordance with those standards. A silicone-type sealer is recommended. and 3 FOR THE PLUMBER CONNECT TO WATER CONDENSATE (observe local codes) 1 Use l/o” OD soft copper tubing for the cold 1.

Run power cord thru hole into unit compartment Figure 5A) Position the tubing so It can enter the access hole located in the right-hand rear of the cabrnet. The tubing should extend beyond the cabinet front when the cabinet is pushed back into position. See Figure 5. 4. Remove lower grille assembly. (See (See Figure 5B) 5. Remove shunt from receptable and plug in condensate pump. (See Figure 5C) NOTE: NOTE: Always purge the water line before making the final connection to the inlet of the water valve to prevent possible water valve malfunction. Do not discard shunt that is removed from receptable. This must be replaced if unit is to be operated without condensate pump. After the cabinet is in place, bend the tubing to meet the connection at the water valve. The garden hose threaded compression fitting is found in the parts bag. This joint provides a convenient disconnect for service. Be sure the tubing is clear of compressor, to prevent rattle.

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 ordrnances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. See Figure 6. GROUNDING POWER SUPPLY FIGURE 6 ALTERNATE GROUNDING MtrnOD DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, REMOVE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD GROUND PRONG. If changing and properly cle IS impossible and grounding the wall receptawhere local codes permit (consult your electrical inspector), a temporary adapter may be plugged into the existing 2-prong wall receptacle to mate wrth the Z&prong power supply cord. See Figure 7. THIS, HOWEVER, IS NOT RE- COMMENDED. HOW IT WORKS If this is done, you must connect the grounding eyelet on the adapter to the wall receptacle cover plate screw and from this same screw, you must connect a separate copper ground wire (No. 4 minimum) to a grounded cold water pipe’. See Figure 7. Do not ground to a gas supply pipe Do not connect to electrical supply until appliance is permanently grounded. 0 Compressor runs 0 Condenser fan runs ‘Cold WHEN THE DESIRED ICE SLAB THICKNESS IS REACHED, THE HARVEST CYCLE BEGINS AND THE FOLLOWING HAPPENS: water ground pipe and must have metal not be Interrupted electrrcally tnsulatrng pump) wrthout addrng connectors a lumper conttnurty by plastrc. to electrrcal rubber or other (tncludrng water meter wrre al these connectrons or 0 Water pump 0 Cutter grid runs (circulates is warm water) to touch GROUND ASSEMBLY (ATTACH TO GROUNDED COLD WATER PIPE) MUST GROUND 0 Evaporator thermostat 0 Compressor keeps 0 Condenser fan stops 0 Water 0 Hot gas solenoid opens 0 Water opens MINIMUM) 0 Excess / 0 Cutter ELECTRICALLY GROUNDED COLD WATER PIPE (REMOVE BE TIGHT WIRE tit4 NOTE: pump running or turns very slowly stops inlet valve water grid is satisfied is flushed is warm Normal out of the drain pan to the touch harvest cycle takes 60 to 120 seconds. 3-PRONG GROUNDING PLUG f WALL POWER SUPPLY WHEN THE STORAGE BIN IS FILLED, BIN THERMOSTAT OPENS.

Therefore the first cycle will be completed without water in the system. 0 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. 0 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. 0 The storage bin is not refngerated and some meltage will occur. This, too, varies with the room temperature. 0 The unit efficiently. clean. 0 The water system, including filter screen in the water inlet solenoid valve, needs to be cleaned periodically for good circulation.
