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. 3 General Information 1. Lay carton on rear face and break open 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. - Open bottom flaps 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.

Best results are obtained between 70°F (21 “C) and 90°F (32°C). 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 operation. Installation should be such that the cabinet can be moved forward for servicing, if necessary. This unit MUST be installed in an area rotected Prom the elements, such as wind, rain, and water spray or drip. 90°F (32°C) 1 BEST RANGE 70°F (21°C) level unit 1. After placing unit in position, check to make certain the unit is level side-to-side and front-to-back. 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. 5 For the Plumber Connect to water (observe local codes) 1. Use W (6 mm) OD soft copper tubing for the cold water supply. RIGHT END VlEW W (19 mm) 2. Provide a convenient manual shut-off valve in the water line. Water inlet solenoid valve 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. BACK VIEW 17%’ I.

MACHINE RESUMES FREEZING AFTER SLAB IS RELEASED FROM EVAPORATOR AND THE CUTTING PROCESS BEGINS. WHEN THE STORAGE BIN IS FILLED, BIN THERMOSTAT OPENS. l Cutter grid remains on 5 ings to Remember l l l 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. 10 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%). Electrical Shock Hazard Disconnect power before servicing unit. Failure to do so could result in electrical shock. NOTE: Maximum fuse size: 15 amps. Check Operation Start the unit by turning the service a0 switch to “ON” and opening the line d Check for even water flow over freezing plate. Unit must be level for proper operation. d Check for desired cube thickness and after 24 hours adjust if necessary. Maximum ice yield will be obtained with ice thickness at l/i’ (13 mm) to %” (16 mm). d Replace grille. water valve. tH NOTE: Left is “OFF’ - Middle is “ON” Right is “CLEAN.” In ‘CLEAN” position, only the pump operates. d d Check condenser fan to make sure it is revolving. Check for airflow. Do not insert hand into fan area. Water will not enter pump pan until freezing plate gets cold and machine goes into a harvest cycle. 11 Part No. 2175675 cb 1994 KlkhenAld QDRegIstered Trademark /TM Trademark 01 KItchenAM.
