Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord.
Only connect the ice maker to a properly polarized outlet. No other
appliance should be plugged into the same outlet. Make sure the plug is
fully inserted into the receptacle.
An extension cord is not recommended, as it may overheat and become a
fire risk. If necessary, use an extension cord with a minimum size of No. 14
AWG and rated for no less than 1875 watts.
Do not place hands or objects on or near the ice maker’s evaporator when
it is in operation.
Do not run the power cord over carpeting or heat insulators. Do not cover
the cord. Keep the cord away from high traffic areas and never submerge it
in water.
Always turn off and unplug the ice maker from the power supply before
cleaning and servicing.
Do not use your ice maker outdoors.
Do not use liquids other than water to make ice cubes.
Exercise caution and make sure there is supervision when this appliance is
being used near children.
If the ice maker is brought in from the outside in the winter, allow the ice
maker to warm up to your room’s temperature for a few hours before
plugging it in.
Do not clean your ice maker with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a
fire hazard or cause an explosion.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION
1.
Remove the exterior and interior packaging. Check that the ice basket and
ice scoop are included. If any parts are missing, please contact customer
service.
2.
Clean the interior with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Take out the ice
basket and clean it.
3.
Place your ice maker in a location that is protected from direct sunlight and
other heat sources (e.g., stove, furnace, and radiator). Make sure it is on a
level surface with at least 4 inches of space between the back and sides of
the unit and the wall.
4.
Allow two hours for the refrigerant fluid to settle in the compressor before
plugging the ice maker in.
NOTICE: After unpacking your ice maker, it must
rest in an upright position for at least two hours
before you plug it in or the compressor may be
damaged, shortening the life span of the unit.
5.
Plug your appliance into an exclusive, properly installed and grounded wall
outlet. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground)
prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or
grounding should be directed to a certified electrician.
We recommend you clean your ice maker thoroughly before using it. Please
see Cleaning & Maintenance on page 10 of this guide.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
MAKING ICE
1.
Open the unit’s cover, remove the ice basket, and pour water into the
water reservoir. Keep the water level below the “MAX” line marked inside
the reservoir.
2.
Plug in the unit to the grounded power supply outlet.
3.
Press the “ON/OFF” button on the control panel to begin the ice making
cycle.
4.
Select the size of the ice cube by pressing the “SELECT” button. If the room
temperature is lower than 60°F, it is recommended to select small or
medium ice in order to avoid the ice sticking together.
5.
The ice making cycle lasts anywhere from 7 to 13 minutes, depending on
the size of the ice cubes you select and the ambient room temperature. Ice
making time may vary significantly in extremely high room temperatures.
6.
Periodically verify the water level in the water reservoir when the ice
maker is on. If the water level is too low, the ice maker will automatically
stop and the “Add Water” indictor light will flash in the LCD display
window. Press the “POWER” button to stop the unit and unplug it. Fill the
reservoir with water up to the level mark. Plug it in and press the “POWER”
button again to restart the unit. Allow at least 3 minutes for the
refrigerant inside the compressor to settle before restarting.
7.
The ice maker automatically stops working when the ice basket is full. The
“Ice Bucket Full” indicator will also turn on at this time.
8.
Change the water in the reservoir every 24 hours to ensure hygienic ice. If
the ice maker will not be used for an extended period of time, drain the
water from the reservoir by unplugging the drain off cap located on the
side of the ice maker.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Clean the outside of the ice maker with a mild detergent solution and warm
water. Use a soft cloth to wipe to avoid scratching or damaging the surface of
the unit.
Use the unit’s self-clean function to clean the interior of the unit:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Remove the ice basket.
Add 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar.
Plug in the unit. Hold down the CLEAN button for at least 6 seconds and
release. The unit will automatically enter the self-clean program. This
process will last about 5-6 minutes, after which the unit will automatically
power down again. During this process the “Add Water Indicator” and the
“Self Cleaning Indicator” will light in the LCD display window, and the fan
blades in the self-clean symbol will always rotate. This process will rinse
the inside parts of the ice maker thoroughly.
After the self-clean program is completed, drain out the water by
unplugging the drain cap on the side. Then close the drain cap.
Unplug the unit and add fresh water into the interior tank, up to the water
level mark.
Re-plug the unit to the power supply, and rerun the self-cleaning program
again as described in Step 3.
When the self-cleaning program is completed, unplug the unit and drain
out the water by unplugging the drain cap on the side.
Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.
Tighten the drain cap. Replace the ice basket and plug the unit in again.
To remove the build-up of calcium or other impurities, add a capful of vinegar
or lemon juice to the water in the reservoir and run for two or three ice-making
cycles. Drain and refill the reservoir with clean, warm water. Run two more
cycles to rinse the vinegar or lemon-juice.
When the machine is not in use open the water drain cap to completely drain
the water reservoir.

STORAGE
Before storing your ice maker, clean it according to the directions above and
allow it to dry thoroughly – at least 24 hours – in order to prevent the growth
of mold or mildew.

Love Your Home
Solution

Press “POWER” to
restart.
Remove ice from the
basket.
Check if ice cubes are
blocking the ice shovel;
otherwise, consult a
certified technician to
check the motor and
micro switch.
Consult a qualified
technician to check the
sensor or change to a
new one.
Stop the ice maker and
allow ice block to melt.
Select smaller size and
restart.
Change the water in the
inner tank. Temperature
of water is best between
45°F - 90°F.
12
Problem
The ice making cycle
appears to be normal
but no ice is being
produced.
The ice cubes are too
small.
Possible Cause
The refrigerant may be
leaking.
Solution
Consult a qualified
technician.
A pipe in the cooling
system may be
blocked.
Ambient temperature
or water temperature
in inner tank is too
high.
The ambient
temperature or water
temperature may be
too high.
The compressor may
need to warm up.
Consult a qualified
technician.
The ice has a “plastic”
taste.
The unit’s interior may
need to be cleaned.
The unit produces a
large block of ice instead
of cubes.
The ambient
temperature may be
too low.
The ice cubes have a
cloudy appearance.
There may be trace
minerals in your water
or ice is being
produced too quickly.
Please run the ice maker
below 90°F and pour
colder water into the
tank.
Select large sized ice
cubes by pressing the
“SELECT” button.
If this is the first time the
unit is being used, allow
the ice maker to cycle a
few times. This should
result in larger cubes.
Add a tablespoon of
lemon juice or vinegar to
a full tank of water and
allow the ice maker to
cycle a few times.
Unplug the unit and let
the ice thaw out. Allow
the ice maker to defrost
for a few hours and
restart the unit.
Ice cubes may develop
cloudiness when water is
frozen quickly. As ice
develops on the surface
of water, certain gases
can no longer remain
dissolved and begin to
surface as microscopic
bubbles. This cloudiness
is normal.
