WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD — Electrical Grounding Required.
• Keep the unit unplugged throughout installation
except during testing.
Your unit is Black, White or Stainless Steel. Black and
White units have a reversible door with a slightly
contoured handle across the top. They come with a flush
mounted door panel that, when removed, will accept a
custom 1/4-inch thick door panel or a 3/4-inch thick full
overlay door panel. Stainless Steel units are covered with
a protective coating and have been ordered left- or righthand hinged. The Stainless doors are not reversible and
do not accept custom panels. Please carefully follow the
directions that apply to your unit and your intended
design.
• Never remove the round grounding prong from
the plug and never use a two-prong grounding
adapter.
• Never use an extension cord to connect power to
the unit.
• Always keep your working area dry.
CAUTION
• Use care when moving and handling the unit. Use
gloves to prevent personal injury from sharp edges.
Tools/Materials Required
• Do not lift the unit by the door or door handle.
• Screwdrivers — slotted and Phillips head
• Do not install the unit behind closed doors or in any
way that would obstruct airflow to the front grille,
which may cause the unit to malfunction.
• 1/4-inch OD copper tubing and shut-off valve for water
supply line
• 1/4-inch thick door panel material and cutting tools
(Black or White units) (If installing a 1/4”Panel)
• Full Overlay Door Panel Kit (part number U-OL2115B —
Black or part number U-OL2115W — White), 3/4-inch
door panel overlay, cutting tools, drill and bits (Black or
White units) (If installing a 3/4” Full Overlay)
Inspection
Unwrap and inspect the unit on a flat, level surface
capable of supporting its entire weight.
Removing Protective Coating
(Stainless Steel Units Only)

door and not the handle on Stainless Steel models (see
Figure 2).
• Do not clean with steel wool pads.
• Do not use cleaners that are not specifically
intended for stainless steel (this includes glass,
tile and counter cleaners).
• If any surface discolors or rusting appears, clean it
quickly with Bon-Ami or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser
and a non-abrasive cloth. Always clean in the direction
of the grain. Always finish this process with Claire
Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable
product to prevent further problems.
• Use of abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite will
cause the graining in the stainless to become
blurred.
• Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate into the
surface of the stainless steel and complete removal of
the rust may not be possible.

ULIN_0003_A
Figure 7
Many U-Line models are designed to operate in harsh
outdoor/marine environments. Special considerations
include the following:
Figure 8
5. Remove existing bottom hinge (3 screws) and remount
on opposite side TOP. Remove hinge screw pin.
• The units are designed to operate between 50°F (10°C)
and 110°F (40°C). High ambient temperatures (110°F
[40°C] or higher) may reduce the unit’s ability to reach
low temperatures and may also reduce the ice
production rate for those models with icemakers.
6. Remove the plastic hole plug from the top of the door
to allow the pivot pin to be inserted in the new
location. Install the plug into the vacated hole on the
opposite side.
• If the ambient temperature is expected to drop below
45°F (7°C), drain all water from the unit to prevent
freezing damage not covered by the warranty.
7. With bottom of door facing up, remove pivot plate
(2 screws), flip over, and remount on opposite side of
door (see Figure 9). Be sure notch in plate faces center.
• For best performance, keep the unit out of direct
sunlight and away from heat generating equipment.
• For best performance and life outdoors, place under a
counter or provide shelter of some kind.
• In climates where high humidity and dew points are
present, condensation may appear on outside surfaces.
This is considered normal. The condensation will
disappear when the humidity drops.
Figure 9
8. Holding door upright with top of door tilted forward,
place hole of door pivot plate on bottom hinge screw
pin (see Figure 10).
9. Tilt top of door into
position in top hinge and
install top hinge screw pin.

Side-By-Side Installation
Instructions
4 Prepare and Install Door Panel
(Black and White Units Only)
For a complete refreshment center, install your BI2115 Ice
Maker beside a U-Line Refrigerator, Combo, or Wine
Captain Model (see Figure 11 for typical cut-out). Note
that each Side-By-Side Installation will be different.
Two types of custom door panels can be installed on your
Black or White unit to harmonize with or accent the
surrounding décor: a Custom 1/4" Insert or a Full Overlay.
If no custom door panel is used, go on to 5 Adjust Door.
• Cut-out width for a side-by-side installation is the total
of the widths listed under Cut-Out Dimensions in each
unit’s Installation Guide.
Custom 1/4'' Door Panel Insert
For example:
Door Panel Preparation
Placing a BI2115 Ice Maker next to a 2115 series unit
would require a cut-out width of:
15-3/16" + 15-3/16" = 30-3/8"
A custom door panel can be inserted into the doorframe.
Custom door panels can be flat or raised, as long as the
maximum panel thickness where inserted into the door
reveal (channel) is 1/4"-thick. For raised panels, the depth
of the reveal is 1/4" on all four sides.
Placing a BI2115 Ice Maker next to a 2175 series unit
would require a cut-out width of:
15-3/16" + 24-3/16" = 39-3/8"
IMPORTANT
• No trim kit is required. However, 1/4-inch space needs to
be maintained between the units to ensure
unobstructed door swing.
Raised panels will reduce the door’s 90° swing/zero
clearance if the unit is installed next to a wall or similar
type of structure.
• Units must operate from separate, properly grounded
electrical receptacles placed according to each unit’s
Electrical Specifications.
For 2175 models cut the panel insert to the following
dimensions.

Plumbing installation must observe all state and local
codes. All water connections MUST BE made by a licensed/
qualified plumbing contractor. Failure to follow
recommendations and instructions may result in damage
and/or harm.
3. Carefully bend the water
supply line into position
and connect the line to
the solenoid valve (see
Figure 33). Avoid kinking
the water supply line.
WARNING
To prevent accidental electrocution, make certain
that the floor surfaces surrounding the unit are
dry whenever power is removed from, or applied
to, the unit.
Water Supply Connection
Figure 33
When connecting the water supply, follow these
guidelines:
IMPORTANT
• Review the local plumbing codes before you install the
unit.
Normal operation creates some vibration. A water supply
line contacting cabinet wall may cause excessive noise
during operation or damage to the line.
• Connect to the cold water supply.
• The water pressure should be between 20 and 120 psi.
4. For recessed installations, allow extra water supply line
length to provide slack for easy removal from the
recessed area (see Figure 33). This will also safeguard
against kinking the line.
• Install a shut-off valve in the 1/4 inch Outside Diameter
water supply line.
• Connect sufficient tubing to the unit so that tubing
may be looped, allowing the unit to be removed for
cleaning and servicing (see Figure 33). However, make
certain that the tubing is not pinched or damaged
during installation.
5. Go on to 7 Prepare Power Supply.
Note: U-Line recommends the use of copper tubing
for installation. The use of other types of tubing is not
recommended due to potential aftertaste & deterioration
over time.
To connect to water supply:
1. Install the 1/4 inch Outside Diameter copper water line
from the main water source (see Figure 31).

8 Level the Unit
Electrical Specifications
Leveling Information
CAUTION
IMPORTANT
It is extremely important that the unit is level. If it is not
level, the ice mold will not fill evenly.
Electrical installation must observe all state and local
codes. This unit requires connection to a grounded (threeprong), polarized receptacle that has been placed by a
qualified electrician.
1. Use a level to check the
levelness of the ice
maker from front to
back and from side to
side. Level should be
placed along top edge
and side edge as shown
(see Figure 35).
The unit requires a grounded and polarized 115 VAC,
60 Hz, 15A power supply (normal household current).
An individual, properly grounded branch circuit or circuit
breaker is recommended. GFCI (ground fault circuit
interrupter) is usually not required for fixed location
appliances and is not recommended for your unit because
a GFCI could be prone to nuisance tripping. However, be
sure to consult your local codes.
1
See Figure 34 for recommended receptacle location.
ULIN_0043_A

2. If the ice maker is not level, adjust the feet on the
corners of the unit as necessary (see Figure 36).

3. Check the levelness after each adjustment and repeat
the previous steps until the unit is level. Go on to
9 Install the Unit.
SHOCK HAZARD — Electrical Grounding Required.
• Never remove the round grounding prong from
the plug and never use a two-prong grounding
adapter.
Installation Tip
• Never use an extension cord to connect power to
the unit.
If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cut-out
opening, adjust the rear feet to achieve a total unit rear
height of 1/8" less than the opening’s rear height. Shorten
the unit height in the front by adjusting the front feet.
This allows the unit to be gently tipped into the opening.
Readjust the front feet to level the unit after it is correctly
positioned in the opening.

Installation of the BI2115
Initial Start-Up
1. Open the water supply valve in the main water source.
All Units are shipped with controls that are preset. No
initial adjustments are required.
2. Make sure the ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position (see
Figure 37).
Once installation and leveling is complete, the unit is
ready for initial start-up and operation. The ON/OFF
switch is located on the lower front panel (see Figure 37).
3. Plug in the power cord.
4. Gently push the unit into position. Be careful not to
kink the water supply line or entangle the electrical
cord.

5. Re-check the leveling, from front to back and side to
side. Make any necessary adjustments. The unit’s top
surface should be approximately 1/8" below the
countertop.
Installation Troubleshooting
Q: Problem
Figure 37
ULIN_0132_A
Water is leaking under the unit.
A: Solution
1. Put the ON/OFF switch in
the ON position.
A water leak under the unit is most likely caused by a bad
connection in the water supply line. Make sure the water
line’s brass fitting is screwed tight to its valve and
threaded correctly.
2. As soon as the ice maker
mold reaches the proper
temperature, the ice
maker mechanism will fill
the mold with water.
Q: Problem
Note: The first cubes may be
small because of air in the
water line. Subsequent cubes
will be standard size.
The door remains open unless it is pushed closed.
A: Solution
Figure 38
3. The ice maker will
continue to produce until the bin is full. You may
interrupt production by raising the bin arm into an
upright and locked position (see Figure 38). While the
bin arm is locked, the unit will maintain temperature
for ice storage.
The hinges should be self-closing when the door is open
approximately 8". If this is not the case, make sure the
closers (at the bottom of the hinge pin) are clean, greased
and installed correctly. Also, re-check leveling from front
to back of the unit and readjust if necessary. Make sure
that pivot plate is installed correctly.
Q: Problem
IMPORTANT
The custom overlay door was designed to align with the
rest of the cabinet doors, but the unit has crept forward.
It is possible that dirt or scale will dislodge in the water
line. Always throw away all ice cubes made during the
first twenty-four (24) hours of operation.
A: Solution
About Settings
No adjustments should be necessary at this time. For
information about Adjusting the Temperature Control
and Adjusting Ice Cube Size, see the Use and Care Guide.
Make sure that the electrical cord and water supply line
are not obstructing the installation.

BI-2115 — Ice Maker
Start-Up Troubleshooting
Q: Problem
Unit does not appear to turn on when switch is set to ON.
A: Solution
Make sure unit is plugged in and outlet has power (circuit
breaker has not tripped). Remember that the ice maker
mechanism will not fill the mold with water until the
mold reaches the proper temperature.
Q: Problem
Water does not appear to be flowing into unit.
A: Solution
Check that the water is connected and turned on and the
line is not obstructed.
Q: Problem
Ice cubes produced during the first two to three hours of
operation have been discarded. New cubes still appear
cloudy.
A: Solution
This is normal and is caused by air being trapped in the
cube during fast freezing.
