critical information and easy operational control.
When desired, optional controls can add features
like ultrasonic bin ice level sensing, seven day
programmable bin ice level setting, remote lock out
and more.

locate the machine away from heat producing
appliances and heating ducts. Provide several feet

The quality of the water supplied to the ice machine
will have an impact on the time between cleanings
and ultimately on the life of the product. There are
two ways water can contain impurities: in
suspension or in solution. Suspended solids can be
filtered out. In solution or dissolved solids cannot
be filtered, they must be diluted or treated. Water
filters are recommended to remove suspended
solids. Some filters have treatment in them for
suspended solids. Check with a water treatment
service for a recommendation.
Scotsman filters:
Cube ice machines use more water than what ends
up in the bin as ice. While most water is used
during ice making, a portion is designed to be
drained out every cycle to reduce the amount of
hard water scale in the machine. That’s known as
water flush, and an effective flush can increase the
time between needed water system cleaning.
In addition, this product is designed to
automatically vary the amount of water flushed
based on the purity of the water supplied to it. The
water flush rate can also be set manually.
Adjustments of flush due to local water conditions
are not covered by warranty.
A triple head filter is recommended for the potable
water. Either the Scotsman SSM3 taste and odor
filter system, or the ADS-AP3 Aqua Patrol system.
RO water. This machine can be supplied with
Reverse Osmosis water, but the water conductivity
must be no less than 10 microSiemens/cm.
Condenser Water Supply - filtration not

GPH, 70 degree water
Potential for Airborne Contamination
Installing an ice machine near a source of yeast or
similar material can result in the need for more
frequent sanitation cleanings due to the tendency
of these materials to contaminate the machine.
Most water filters remove chlorine from the water
supply to the machine which contributes to this
situation. Testing has shown that using a filter that
does not remove chlorine, such as the Scotsman
Aqua Patrol, will greatly improve this situation,
while the ice making process itself will remove the
chlorine from the ice, resulting in no taste or odor
impact. Additionally, devices intended to enhance
ice machine sanitation, such as the Scotsman
Aqua Bullet, can be placed in the machine to keep
it cleaner between manual cleanings

Push and release the ON button. The indicator
light will begin to blink F.
The flush valve will open and the water pump will
start. The inlet water valve will open to add water to
the reservoir. After a few seconds the flush valve
will close and the water pump will stop. Water will
flow into the machine until the reservoir is full. The
hot gas valves and harvest assist devices will
activate then the compressor and water pump will
start. If its an air cooled model the fan(s) motors
will begin to turn. The display will show a
continuous F. Five seconds later the hot gas valves
will close and the harvest assist device will return
to its standby position. Warm air will be discharged
from air cooled models.

The control will ignore that signal for the first 6
minutes of freeze.
During the Freeze cycle open and close the
curtains. The SW1 and SW2 lights on the
control board will blink ON when each curtain is
opened and OFF when closed.
Note: Moving a curtain during the Freeze cycle has
no affect on the control, but will cause water to flow
into the cube chute.
When the ice has frozen enough, the Ready for
Harvest indicator light will be on steady. After
it’s been on steady for a few seconds Harvest
will begin.
The display shows an H.
The hot gas valves open, the air cooled fan motors
shut off and the harvest assist mechanisms are
activated. The flush valve opens to drain some
water, when it does the inlet water valve opens to
refill the reservoir. After a few seconds the flush
valve closes but the inlet water valve continues to
fill the reservoir. Harvest continues until the ice is
released as a unit and forces the curtain to open.
When both curtains re-close the controller returns
the unit to a freeze cycle.
10 Check the ice harvested for proper bridge
thickness. The ice bridge is factory set at 3/16
inch. If needed, adjust bridge thickness. Do
NOT make it too thin.

below. If desired, change the setting to
accommodate the local water conditions.

Use and Operation
Once started, the ice machine will automatically
make ice until the bin or dispenser is full of ice.
When ice level drops, the ice machine will resume
making ice.
Caution: Do not place anything on top of the ice
machine, including the ice scoop. Debris and
moisture from objects on top of the machine can
work their way into the cabinet and cause serious
damage. Damage caused by foreign material is not
covered by warranty.
There are four indicator lights at the front of the
machine that provide information on the condition
of the machine.

but some large sections may remain on top of the
ice in the bin. When removing ice, tap the groups of
ice with an ice scoop to separate them into smaller

The ice machine will make noise when it is in ice
making mode. The compressor, fan motors if air
cooled and water pump all produce some sound. It
is also normal to hear some cracking just before
the harvest cycle begins. In addition, during the
harvest cycle the harvest assist solenoid will click
twice as it pushes the ice out and returns to its
normal position. The ice harvests as a unit or slab,
which makes some noise when it impacts the bin or

Cleaning, Sanitation and Maintenance
This ice system requires three types of
• Remove the build up of mineral scale from the ice machine’s water system and sensors.
• Sanitize the ice machine’s water system and the ice storage bin or dispenser.
• Clean or replace the air filter and clean the air cooled condenser (air cooled models only).
It is the User’s responsibility to keep the ice machine and ice storage bin in a sanitary condition. Without
human intervention, sanitation will not be maintained. Ice machines also require occasional cleaning of
their water systems with a specifically designed chemical. This chemical dissolves mineral build up that
forms during the ice making process.
Sanitize the ice storage bin as frequently as local health codes require, and every time the ice machine
is cleaned and sanitized.
The ice machine’s water system should be cleaned and sanitized a minimum of twice per year.

place except during cleaning.
Push and release the Off button. Wait until the
machine stops.
If there is imbedded grease, use a commercial coil
cleaner to wash out the grease. Dust can be blown
out with compressed air from the back with a
vacuum cleaner operating in the fan area. Be
careful not to damage the condenser’s fins. Use a
fin comb to straighten any bent fins.
Exterior Panels
The front and side panels are durable stainless
steel. Fingerprints, dust and grease will require
cleaning with a good quality stainless steel cleaner.
Water filters
If the machine has been connected to water filters,
check the cartridges for the date they were
replaced or for the pressure on the gauge. Change
cartridges if they’ve been installed more than x
months or if the pressure drops too much when the
ice machine fills with water.

What to do before calling for service
Reasons the machine might shut itself off:
Lack of water.
Freeze cycle takes too long.
Harvest cycle takes too long.
High discharge temperature.
Controller self test failure.
Check the following:
1. Has the water supply to the ice machine or
building been shut off? If yes, the ice machine will
automatically restart within 25 minutes after water
begins to flow to it.
2. Has power been shut off to the ice machine? If
yes, the ice machine will automatically restart when
power is restored.
3. Has someone shut the water off to a water
cooled unit? If yes, the ice machine may need to be
manually reset.
4. Is the curtain open because some ice is stuck
under it? If so, remove the ice and the machine
should start in a few minutes.
Note: Curtain can be removed & replaced anytime
the machine is in a standby mode or when it is in a
freeze cycle. Removal of the curtain during harvest
terminates harvest at that point and, if left off, will
result in the machine shutting off.
Check For
