FOR THE INSTALLER: Environmental Limitations
Installation Limitations
Water Limitations
The ice making portion of this ice system is
designed to be installed indoors, in a controlled
environment.
An ice machine is a food manufacturing plant; it
takes a raw material, water, and turns it into a food
product, ice. The purity of the water is very
important in obtaining pure ice and in maximizing
product life. These general recommendations
should help keep the ice maker clean:
Minimum
Maximum
Air Temp
0
50 F.
1000F.
Water Temp
400F.
1000F.
Water Pressure
20 PSI
80 PSI
Voltage
197
253
Operating the ice machine outside of the above
limitations, or outdoors, is potentially damaging to
the machine; also it is misuse of the machine,
which may void the warranty.
Scotsman Ice Systems are designed and
manufactured with the highest regard for safety
and performance. They meet or exceed the
standards of UL, NSF, and CSA.
Scotsman assumes no liability or responsibility of
any kind for products manufactured by Scotsman
that have been altered in any way, including the
use of any part and/or other components not
specifically approved by Scotsman.
1. Filter the water used to produce ice. Water filters
vary greatly in ability and function. Install one that
filters out suspended solids to a dimension of 5
microns or smaller. The finer the filter the better,
but finer filters will clog sooner than course ones. It
may be necessary to add a course filter ahead of
the fine filter to prolong filter life.
2. Check with a water treatment specialist for a
water test, and recommendations regarding filters
and treatment.
Service Limitations
Some space on the sides, the back and the top
should be allowed for service and utility
connections.
Scotsman reserves the right to make design
changes and/or improvements at any time.
Specifications and design are subject to change
without notice.

FOR THE INSTALLER: Machine & Bin Assembly
Overview:
Ice Maker:
This ice system is comprised of 2 major
assemblies:
1. Arrange for proper electric, water and drain.
See instructions for the plumber and for the
electrician.
1. The ice storage bin.
2. The ice maker itself.
2. Position the ice storage bin in the selected
location.
Storage Bin:
3. Level the bin, in both the front to rear and side
to side directions. Tighten the caster set screws
when the leveling is complete.
1. Measure the location of the ice machine floor
drain relative to the installed location of the bin.
2. Using corner posts from the bin’s carton as a
cushion, lay the bin on its back.
3. Install the casters into the leg mounting holes.
4. Move bin back to an upright position.
5. Align the back set of casters so that the wheel’s
axles are in a line with each other. This will permit
the bin to be rolled back and forth. Check the
casters so that they are tight against the bottom of
the bin. Do not extend the casters past the
horizontal groove in the caster shank.
6. Remove all material that is packed inside the bin.
7. Hang the scoop and scoop holder from the front
edge of the bin.
4. Inspect the bin top mounting gasket which
should be flat, with no wrinkles, to provide a good
water seal when the cuber is installed on top of
the bin.
5. Install the modular cuber on top of the bin using
care to be sure a good seal is made between the
two cabinets, use of a mechanical lift is
recommended. Align the holes in the bottom back
of the cabinet to mate with the two mounting straps
on the top rear of the bin.
6. Use bolts and straps found in the hardware
package to secure the ice machine to the ice
storage bin. Attach the bin bumpers to the bin with
the bolt holding the mounting strap to the bin.
When alignment and leveling are completed,
tighten the bolts to secure the mounting straps.

FOR THE PLUMBER
Water Supply
The recommended water supply line is a 3/8-inch
O.D. tubing with a minimum operating pressure of
20 PSIG and a maximum of 80 PSIG.
A separate water inlet is required for the
condenser water supply.
Connect to cold water supply line with standard
plumbing fittings, with shut off valve installed in an
accessible place between the water supply and
the cuber. ln some cases a plumber will be
required.
Drain Connections:
Drain tubing and fittings are supplied with the ice
bin. All drains are gravity type and must have a
minimum of 1/4-inch fall per foot on horizontal
runs. The drains to be installed must conform with
the local plumbing code.
The water cooled condenser requires a separate
drain line, and is NOT to be vented.
Install a vertical open vent on the drain line(s) high
point to ensure good draining. The ideal drain
receptacle is a trapped and vented floor drain.
September 1993

MCM1062W
FOR THE ELECTRICIAN: Electrical Connections
See the NAMEPLATE for current requirements to
determine wire size to be used for electrical
hookup. The cuber requires a solid chassis to
chassis earth ground wire. See Wiring Diagram.
Be certain the cuber is connected to its own
electrical circuit and individually fused. Voltage
variation should not exceed ten percent of the
nameplate rating, even under starting conditions.
Low voltages can cause erratic operation and may
be responsible for serious damage to the
icemaker.
All external wiring should conform to the
national, state and local electrical code
requirements. Usually an electrical permit and
services of a licensed electrician will be
required.
Electrical connections are made at the rear of the
icemaker, inside the junction box.
The cuber is packaged with a flexible cord and
matching receptacle (not attached), use them to
make electrical connection between the icemaker
and the building’s electrical power, if allowed by
local codes.

FOR THE INSTALLER: Final Check List
1. Is the ice maker cabinet in a room where
ambient temperatures are within the minimum and
maximum temperatures specified?
2. Is there clearance at both sides of the cabinet
and at the back and top for service and utility
connections?
3. Has water supply pressure been checked to
insure a minimum of 20 PSIG and a maximum of
80 PSIG operating pressure?
4. Is the cabinet level?
5. Check that any shipping material has been
removed from inside the cabinet.
6. Have all electrical and piping connections been
made?
7. Are the Master and Compressor switches on
OFF?
8. Has power been connected to the ice maker?
9. Is the water supply line shut off valve installed?
10. Check all refrigerant lines and conduit lines, to
guard against vibration or rubbing and possible
failure.
11. Have the bin and cabinet been wiped clean
and sanitized?
12. Has the Field Quality Audit form been properly
filled out? Check for correct model and serial
numbers from Serial nameplate, then mail the

INITIAL START UP
Ice Maker:
1. Remove front panel by pulling out to unsnap.
2. Remove two screws and the control box cover.
3. Remove the evaporator cover.
4. Remove the left side service panel.
5. Check that the ON/WASH/OFF rocker switch
and the Compressor ON-OFF toggle switch are in
the OFF position, on the control box.
6. OPEN the water supply line shut off valve.
7. Inside the control box is the shaft of the timer
and the switch assembly. Rotate the shaft of the
timer and switch assembly clockwise to where the
actuator arm on the microswitch drops off outer
cam into cam slot. See Timer Cam Positions.

Check that the water distributors are seated at the
top of the evaporators and that water flows over all
cube cells.
Note: Some water spray from the evaporators is
normal when the machine is new. The spray wll go
away after a few cycles.
10. Check that the water cascades down over
each cube mold and into the reservoir.
11. When the reservoir is full, move the
compressor ON-OFF switch, to the ON position.
12. Check operation of the freezing cycle: Ice
forms beginning at the top of the evaporators.
Freezing time will range between 17 and 25
minutes. Longer time for temperatures above 70
degrees F. and shorter time required when
temperatures are below 70-degrees F. Average
complete cycle time is about 20 minutes.
13. Check the discharge pressure. To optimize the
balance between water use and ice production,
the freeze cycle discharge pressure should be 220
P.S.I. G. If needed, adjust the water regulating
valve until the freeze cycle discharge pressure is
220 P.S.I.G.
14. Check CUBE SIZE
The dimensions of the cubes are fixed by the size
and shape of the molds on the evaporator plate,
except that the thickness of the cube MAY need to
be adjusted at start up. There is only one size of
cube that is correct; adjusting the cube size control
to that size of cube will allow the ice maker to
produce ice at its most efficient size. The correct
size cubes will be fully formed at the edges; will
harvest off of the evaporators beginning with
individual cubes at the top of the evaporator, then
vertical strips for the balance; and will appear
similar to the illustration for “Correct Size Cube”.

Adjust for the correct size if needed:
Locate cube size control knob, in the front of the
control box. Rotate this knob one eighth of a turn:
8. Move the ON/WASH/OFF rocker switch to the
ON position.
9. Observe water fill cycle: The inlet water valve
will be open and filling the reservoir. This should
take a few minutes. Near the end of that time the
water reservoir should be draining out the reservoir
drain.
Counter clockwise to produce SMALLER sized ice
cubes:
Or clockwise to produce LARGER ice cubes:
Observe size of ice cubes in the next cube harvest
and adjust again if needed, until correct the ice
cube size is achieved.

INITIAL START UP
15. Check Harvest Time.There must be enough
time in harvest to defrost all the cubes but not an
excessive amount that will waste capacity. The
length of the harvest cycle is determined by the
timer cam positions.
If needed, adjust the harvest time so there are
about 15 seconds of harvest time left after the last
cube has fallen from the evaporators.
Because harvest time varies with the water and air
temperatures at the ice machine, colder air and
water will result in faster ice making but longer
harvest cycles. Do NOT adjust harvest time too
short or the unit will not harvest all the cubes.
CUBES (ACTUAL SIZE)
TOO
THICK
The harvest time is set by: loosening the set screw
on the timer cam, rotating the shaft to open or
close the distance between the high parts of the
cams, and retightening the set screw. More of an
opening between the high parts of the cam = more
harvest time.
Detailed instructions are on the next page.
An adjustment of the cube size control may be
needed after the harvest time has been changed,
so check the cube size again.
16. Check ICE BIN LEVEL CONTROL
The amount of ice maintained in the bin is
adjustable. The normal setting is “full”. The level of
ice in the bin may be set lower to shut off the
machine when the bin is only partially full. The ice
bin level control is designed for the MDB550 ice
storage bin, use of other bins may result in ice
levels that are more or less than the settings on
the control indicate.
To Test The Ice Level Setting:
1. Open the bin door and locate the ice level
sensor. It’s a socket in the base about 2" in
diameter and located left of the evaporator plates.
2. When the machine is running, wait untIl near the
end of a “harvest” cycle.

3. Hold a flat object about the size of this service
manual over the ice level sensor socket.
4. The unit will turn off at the end of the harvest
cycle.

5. Slowly lower the flat object straight down.
6. The ice machine will start again at the point
where it will maintain the ice level.
17. Replace all panels, covers and screws.
18. Fill out and mail in the Warranty Registration
and Customer Evaluation form.
19. Inform the user of the name and telephone
number of the local service company. Also tell the
user the maintenance requirements of the ice
machine.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE TIMER & SWITCH ASSEMBLY
One complete revolution of the cam on the timer
represents eight minutes. If left as factory set,
four and one-half minutes comprise the freezing
cycle portion during cam rotation, and the final
three and one-half minutes is the defrost/harvest
cycle. Rotating the shaft of the timer cam
Clockwise will put the ice machine into the freeze
or harvest cycle, as required in the cleaning
instructions.

2. Tighten the set screw.
3. Replace the control box cover and front panel.
lt is important that the length of the harvest cycle
allow enough time for all the ice cubes to fall from
the evaporator. Too short of a time will cause the
evaporator to freeze up and stop ejecting ice into
the bin. Too much time wastes icemaking capacity,
energy and water. Adjustment of the harvest cycle
may require an adjustment of the cube size
control.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Compressor Contactor
Hot Gas Solenoid Valve
The compressor contactor carries the compressor
line current. The contactor is wired so any control
in the pilot circuit, such as the bin control, and high
pressure controls, etc., will cause the contactor
holding coil to be de energized, when the control
contact OPENS, thereby breaking the circuit to the
compressor.
The hot gas solenoid valve opens only during the
harvest cycle. When it opens, it diverts the hot
discharge gases so that they flow directly into the
evaporator plates, by-passing the condenser and
thermostatic expansion valve. The hot gases warm
the evaporators, releasing the ice cubes from the
ice cube molds. The hot gas solenoid valve is
installed in a branch of the discharge line, and
when the timer switches the ice machine into the
harvest cycle, the energized solenoid coil lifts the
valve stem within the valve body, allowing the hot
discharge gas to be diverted to the evaporators.
Cube Size Control
This reverse acting (closes on temperature fall)
thermostat determines how long the freezing cycle
will be. The cube size control closes it’s contacts
when the evaporator cools to the set temperature,
starting the timer. A variation in heat load (either
ambient air or incoming water temperature) will
affect the efficiency of the refrigeration system, and
that will vary the length of time it takes the
evaporators to cool to the temperature at which the
cube size control is set to close, which, in turn, will
affect the overall cycle time. See CUBE SIZE
ADJUSTMENT BEFORE attempting to adJust the
control.
High Temperature Cut Out
This temperature sensor is located next to the hot
gas valve, on the outlet side.
During normal operation, it does not affect the ice
machine, but it will shut the machine off if the hot
gas line overheats. It is an automatic reset.
Relay
The multi-function, three pole, double throw, relay
plugs into a socket on the printed circuit board in
the control box. The relay functions in part to
by-pass the bin control during the harvest and
freeze cycles, preventing the icemaker from
shutting off in the middle of a cycle. The bypass
action allows only complete freeze and harvest
cycles; the only time that the ice maker can shut
off on bin control is as the end of the harvest cycle.
Timer - Timer & Switch Assembly
The timer begins to turn when activated by the
cube size control. The outer surface, or large
diameter lobe of the timer cam, determines the
length of time for finish freezing of the ice cubes,
while the inner surface, or small diameter lobe,
determines length of the harvest cycle. The
single-pole, double throw microswitch on the timer
controls the power to the plug in relay coil, making
it either the freezing or harvest cycle. The
microswitch is actuated by a cam assembly
directly connected to the timer motor. The timer
cam can be adjusted to vary the defrost time, as
required. One complete rotation of the cam will
take eight minutes. Harvest is preset at 2 and one
quarter minutes.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Ice Level Control
This electronic control uses sound waves to
measure the distance between the bottom of the
ice machine and the top of the ice in the bin. It is
designed to control the machine’s ice production to
maintain that distance.
The control is adjustable so that the ice machine
will maintain a certain height of ice. It will not fill
any closer to the ice machine than 8", and will not
work if the distance to the bottom of the bin is
greater than 8 feet.
Because it uses sound waves, a slight “ticking”
sound can be heard coming from the bottom of the
machine.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Electric Water Inlet Valve
Reservoir
The water inlet solenoid valve fills the reservoir
assembly with water. Excess water overflows out
the overflow standpipe located at the back of the
reservoir. This action fills and rinses the reservoir
during each harvest cycle. The flow rate is .75
g.p.m.
The reservoir, located below the evaporators,
stores the inlet water charge, and collects the
water that flows over the evaporator plates. Above
the reservoir, but below the evaporators are the
cube chutes, designed to retain any water splash
from ice making or harvest. Most ice will be falling
into the bin below the center evaporator.
Water Distribution System
The water distribution system evenly supplies
water to all cells of the evaporator plates. The
water pump pumps water from the reservoir up the
vertical tygon tube to the tee. From there water is
channeled through the water manifold to the water
distributors, above each evaporator plate, and
from six holes within each distributor, water flows
to the cells of each side of the evaporator plates.
Gravity flow returns the unfrozen excess portion of
water to the reservoir for recirculation.
Strainer
A water strainer is located in the potable inlet water
line before the water inlet solenoid valve. Clean
the water strainer as needed.
High Pressure Safety Control
This is a manual reset control that shuts down the
icemaker, should the discharge pressure ever
reach 350 PSIG.

PROBABLE CORRECTION
Ice Machine does not run, it has
power to it, the high pressure
control is closed, the on/off switch is
set to ON.
A. Listen for a ticking sound from
transducer.
If no noise, go to C. If there is a
noise, check for a light on the board
(models built after 4/93). If there is a
light on, check relay contacts N.O.
and COM. The contacts should be
CLOSED. If closed, go to D. If not,
replace the board. If light is off, or
prior model, go to B.
B. Open bin door and twist
transducer 1/4 turn and pull out. DO
If the inside of the transducer
(above screen) was wet, replace it.
Set bin level to FULL and aim at an
object about 1-3 feet away.
Machine should restart, if not go to
D.
NOT UNPLUG with power
connected. Examine the
transducer, the inside must be
clean and dry.
Should be 12 volts from
transformer, if not replace
transformer. If there is power go to
D.
C. Check power to bin level
control board.
D. Disconnect electrical power
and test ice machine circuit by
attaching a jumper wire between bin
thermostat posts on circuit board
part no. 12-1912-01 (the circuit
board with the timer on it).
Reconnect power.
If machine does not start go back
to machine circuit. If machine
starts, disconnect electrical power,
remove jumper wire and reconnect
electrical power. Then go to E.
E. Transducer or ice level board
assembly defective.
Replace transducer. Set bin level to
FULL and aim at an object about
1-3 feet away. Machine should
restart. If this does not repair unit,
replace the board.
Machine runs, makes ice, switches
on and off, but ice level cannot be
controlled.
Ice level switch may be defective.
On boards with a light, check by
moving switch & watching light.
Replace ice level switch
Machine runs, but will not shut off.
Board relay stuck closed. Check
relay.
