IMPORTANT INFORMATION
UNPACKING
After removing the packing materials, check the appearance of the ice maker for possible defects or irregularity.
If the product shows any irregularity in its appearance, contact the dealer to inquire about it.
All the packing materials (strings, box, styrofoam, and wood, etc.) should not be left within reach of children and
should be disposed of responsibly.
For safety, the product should be installed and used with caution in accordance with this manual. Incorrect
installation or careless use of the product may cause damage or injury to the environment, humans, animals,
and/or materials and property. The manufacturer does not bear any responsibility for any damage or injury.
The ice maker should NOT be installed near heat generators such as heaters, stoves, dish washers, or grills.
VENTILATION
The ice maker draws air through the left part of the kick plate/grill using a fan and expels hot air through the
right parts of the kick plate/grill. If any material is placed in front of the kick plate/grill, the flow of air flow will be
disrupted, and can result in reduced performance and/or malfunction. The ice maker should be operated within
a temperature range of 50° F to 100° F.
CAUTION: Do not cover the kick plate/grill parts.
Note: A decoration door may be installed at the front but the ventilation holes of the kick plate/grill should not
be blocked.
WATER SUPPLY
The ice maker requires a continuous supply of potable water from 20-80psi.
WATER QUALITY
There is no such thing as “perfectly pure” water. All water contains some impurities. Rainwater absorbs impurities
from the atmosphere or when it passes through soil. Some impurities consist of solid particles called suspended
solids and are filtered through micro filters. Any remaining impurities cannot be filtered because they are chemically
combined with water molecules. These impurities are called dissolved solids.
The mineral content of the ice produced by the product is reduced compared to the content in the water before
conversion into ice. Water containing a low level of impurities is rapidly frozen. The reason for this is that the
impurities elevate the temperature of water. Through such an action, most of the impurities condensed in the
water-tank of the ice maker form a hard precipitation called scale.
If a large quantity of mineral scale accumulates, the lifespan of the ice maker may be reduced.
For best operation of the ice maker, impurities and minerals should be decomposed by washing with vinegar
periodically. See the SERVICING AND CLEANING section for details.
In general, it is best to use filtered water. Filters may remove not only bad odor but also particulates. Neutral
water is not recommended.
Water softener is not recommended because it exchanges minerals. If the hardness of the water is very high,
softening may lead to the attachment of opaque pieces of ice.
If you have any questions about the purity of your water, contact your local water department.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Proper operation of the ice maker requires routine maintenance and cleaning, see the ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
AND CLEANING section for details.
INTERIOR OF UNIT
This product was thoroughly washed at the factory. However, check the cleanness of the inside before use and
keep it clean during use.
WARNING: Used refrigerators and freezers should be safely stored or disposed of. Ensure that the product’s
door has been removed or permanently closed. If children are able to enter the ice maker, a serious
accident may occur.

4. Good-quality ice is produced 1-2 hours later.
USING THE ICE MAKER
Turn the switch at the lower end of the product to the “ICE”
position. The product automatically starts ice production, which
continues until the ice container has been filled with ice. Remove
the ice using the supplied ice scoop found on the inside left
wall of the ice maker. (If you place the ice scoop on the ice, it
may be covered over by ice.)
Fig. 11-1 Switch
The ice maker produces 24 pieces of ice every 30 minutes.
Important: Do not put anything other than ice in the ice
container. Wine or beer bottles are unsanitary
and a detached label may block the drain pipe.
The ice maker is not a freezer. It is a refrigerator with
a freezer section. The ice in the container is slowly
melting and replenished as needed.
ICE
The ice has a top hat shape (see Fig. 11-2). Newly produced
ice is clear and transparent. The inside of the ice is sometimes
cracked; however, such cracks commonly occur in the production
process and disappear with time. Ice stored in the container
for a long time may gather frost on the outside and look cloudy.
This is normal and once water is poured on the ice, the frost
disappears.
Fig. 11-2 Ice cube
ICE CONTAINER
The product continues making ice until the level of ice reaches the
temperature sensing tube (right side). It then ceases operation.
Models with a drain pump drain away melted ice when the ice
maker is turned off. The pump works for only several seconds.
OPERATION TIME
It takes about 20-35 minutes to produce a set of 24 ice pieces.
The length of one cycle of the ice maker (ice production and
ice removal) differs depending upon the cleanness of the ice
maker, the surrounding temperature, and the temperature of
the water supplied to the ice maker. It takes about 10-12 hours
to fill the empty ice container with ice.

L-C2-499
OPERATION (cont.)
ICE PRODUCTION
The ice production process largely consists of two cycles – ice production and ice removal. 24 pieces of ice are
produced with each cycle of ice production and ice removal.
When water is sprayed on to the surface of the frozen ice-forming mold, the ice production cycle is started. When
ice is removed and water is supplied to ice maker, the ice removal cycle is started.
ICE REMOVAL CYCLE
The compressor works during the progression of the ice removal cycle, but the pump motor and fan motor are
stopped. The hot gas valve and water supply valve work. When the two valves are opened and the frozen surfaces
are heated, ice drops down into the container. Then the ice removal cycle is stopped and the ice production
cycle is started again by the program installed in the ice maker.
HOW IT MAKES ICE
The ice maker starts its work with the fixed quantity that has been fed into the water container. When water
is sprayed on to the surface of the ice-forming mold, the water not containing mineral impurities freezes and
attaches to the ice-forming mold. The water containing impurities drops down into the water container. During
the progression of the ice production cycle, the mineral impurity level of the water in the water container rises.
During the progression of the ice removal cycle, water is fed to the ice maker, thereby diluting the water in the
container, and washes a part of the concentrated minerals through the drain pipe.

L-C2-499
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
All the exterior parts, door, ice container, condenser, circulatory
parts for ice-production water, and ice scoop of the product
should be kept clean.
The ice maker should be cleaned periodically. If the ice maker is
kept clean, its lifespan will be extended. Regular cleaning should
be performed at least once a year; twice a year is recommended,
see the ICE-PRODUCTION SYSTEM section on following page.
The frequency of cleaning the ice-production system should be
increased depending upon the water quality.
CAUTION: Before service or cleaning is performed, ensure the
switch is in the OFF position, the power supply is
disconnected, and all components of the unit are
completely cool.

The exterior of the appliance should be cleaned by first using
stainless steel cleaner to remove grease and dirt. Always wipe
with the grain (see Fig. 13-1). Next, apply stainless steel polish
and wipe down using polish wipes to restore the stainless
steel color.
If the gasket has spots/stains on its surface, remove and clean
using soap and warm water. Use non-abrasive cloths or pads.

home bleaching agent and 2 gallons of warm water at 95°-115°
(35-45° C) for use as the cleansing fluid. Moisten clean cloths
with the cleansing fluid and scrub the inside of the ice container
with the cloths. Pour a small quantity of the fluid into the drain
pipe. See Fig. 13-2. Thoroughly rinse with clean water and
dry the interior.
