Ice Maker
Changing the Bin Door and
Lower Panels
The storage bin door is designed to accept an optional decorative wood panel of your
choice. The wood panel should be no more than l/4 inch (6 mm) thick. Cut it to the same
size as the production metal panel.
To change the bin door panel:
1. Open the bin door.
2. Remove the two screws on top of the
Ktoor
(26; mm)
door that secure the handle.
3. Remove the handle and handle insert.
DIMENSIONS

4. Slide the metal panel out.
5. Break off all door insulation ribs to allow
room for the wood panel’s thickness.
6. Slide the wood panel into the door
frame.
7. Replace the handle and screws.
To change the lower panel:
1. Remove the three screws that hold the
lower panel assembly to the ice maker.
2. Remove the two screws on the top of the
panel assembly.
3. Slide the metal panels and spacers out.
4. Slide the wood panel into the door
frame.
5. Replace the top of the panel assembly.
NOTE: Make sure the galvanized panel is
replaced in back of the panel assembly.

Thermostat calibrations
If ice maker is installed more than 2,000 feet
(600 m) above sea level, the Bin and Ice
Thickness Thermostats must be adjusted
to a warmer setting. Disconnect electricity,
remove thermostat, and follow the directions
for turning the altitude adjustment screw as
shown in the label on each thermostat.
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.

bottom flaps.
2. Set carton upright with all four
flaps outward.
3. Lii carton up and off of machine.
4. Remove all tape and packaging
materials from the outside and inside
of the cabinet.
5. Remove the lower access panel by
removing the two screws securing the
grille at the bottom and the one screw at
the top, and lift it free of cabinet.

3. Provisions for electricity, water, and drain
connections should be determined.
4. The unit may be closed in on the top and
three sides, but the front MUST BE
unobstructed for air circulation and proper

1. After placing unit in position, check to
make certain the unit is level side-to-side

2. Accurate leveling is essential for proper
operation.
3. Unit should be shimmed so that it is solid
as well as level. The shims should be of
hard permanent type material such as
Masonite.
4. 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 sealer.

3. 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.
NOTES:
Always purge the water line before making
the final connection to the inlet of the water
valve to prevent possible water valve
malfunction.
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 the Electrician
Electrical requirements
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15 or 20
ampere electrical supply circuit, 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 this appliance, be provided.
Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off
with a switch or pull chain. DO NOT use an
extension cord.
Grounding method
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,
REMOVE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD
GROUND PRONG.
For your personal safety, this appliance
must be grounded. This appliance is
equipped with a power supply cord which
has 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 and obligation of the customer
to have a properly grounded 3-prong wall
receptacle installed by a qualified electriiian.

Electrical Shock Hazard
. Electrical ground Is requlred on this
appliance.
. Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
. Do Not modify the power supply cord
plug. If It does not fit the outlet, have
a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
l Do Not have a fuse in the neutral or
grounding circuit. A fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit could
result in an electrical shock.
l Do Not use an extension
cord with
this appliance.
l Check with a qualified
electrician if
you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
Failure to follow these instructions could
result in death, electrical shock, or
serious injury.

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.

l
l
l
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.
The water system, including filter screen in
the water inlet solenoid valve, needs to be
cleaned periodically for good circulation.
Instructions are located on the inner
door panel.
21nit Wiring Diagrams
This model operates at 115 volts except for
the cutter grid circuit which operates at 8.5
volts at 1 amp.
The compressor runs at all times except
when the Bin Thermostat becomes satisfied
and opens the circuit. This de-energizes the
system except for the transformer and cutter
grid.
Under normal operating conditions, when
the evaporator reaches the preset temperature (+lO” to -3°F [-12” to -1 9”C], depending
on thickness of ice) the evaporator thermostat opens, terminating operation of the fan
motor and pump motor. The hot gas solenoid and the water valve solenoid are
energized at this time and remain so until the
evaporator reaches 38” + 2°F (3” + 1%).

Failure to do so could result in electrical
shock.
