Electrical Connection
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. The power
cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug that mates with a
standard 3-prong grounding wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock
hazard from the appliance. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall
outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. The ice maker should always be plugged into
its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating
label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated
wires. Never unplug your ice maker by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the
plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet. Repair or replace immediately all
4
power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that
shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the
ice maker, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended
that you do not use an extension cord with this ice maker.

• To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front of the unit must be completely
unobstructed. Allow at least 101 mm (4”) clearance at rear, and 15 mm (0.6”) at top and sides
for proper air circulation. The installation should allow the ice maker to be pulled forward for
servicing if necessary.
• When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the recommended spacing dimensions
shown. Place electrical and water supplies and drain fixtures in the recommended locations
as shown.
• Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 55ºF (13ºC) and below 80ºF (27ºC).
This unit MUST be installed in an area protected from the elements, such as wind, rain, water
spray or drips.
• The unit should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.
• Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet of 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) soft
copper tubing with a shut-off valve and a gravity-drain system.
(NOTE: Run-off water can also be drained into a sink via a pump – not included – when a
gravity drain is not available.)
• The ice maker requires a continuous water supply with a minimum pressure of 20psig and a
static pressure not to exceed 80psig. The temperature of the water feeding into the ice
maker should be between 41ºF (5ºC) and 77ºF (25ºC) for proper operation.
Normal operating ambient temperature should be between 55ºF
(13ºC) to 80ºF (27ºC). Normal operating water temperature
should be between 41ºF (5ºC) and 77ºF (25ºC). Operation of
the ice maker for extended periods outside of these normal
temperature ranges may affect production capacity.
• In general, it is always a good idea to filter the water. A water filter, if it is of the proper type,
can remove taste and odors as well as particles. Where water is very hard, softened water may
result in white, mushy cubes that stick together. Deionized water is not recommended.
• The ice maker must be installed with all electrical, water and drain connections in accordance
with state and local codes.
• The unit should be located on a firm and level surface. It is important for the ice maker to be
leveled in order to work properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of the ice maker by
revolving the feet. See the Leveling the Ice Maker section.

Never use an adapter.
Never use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire,
electrical shock or death.
 IMPORTANT: Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord between the ice maker and
wall or cabinet.
 Before you move your ice maker into its final location, it is important to make sure you
have the proper electrical connection.
 A standard electrical supply (115 VAC only, 60 Hz, 15 A), properly grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.
 It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice maker, be provided. Use
receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
 The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amperes.
Recommended grounding method
For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. This appliance is equipped with a
power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To minimize possible shock hazard,
the cord must be plugged into a mating 3-pronged and grounding-type wall receptacle,
grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. If
a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to
have a properly grounded, 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
10
Leveling the Ice Maker
It is important for the ice maker to be leveled in order to work properly. It can be raised or
lowered by rotating the plastic sheaths around each of the four rolling casters on the bottom
of the machine. If you find that the surface is not level, rotate the casters until the ice
maker becomes level. You may need to make several adjustments to level it. We recommend
using a carpenter’s level to check the machine.
You will find that the casters make it easy for one person to move the machine. This is
useful for cleaning and sanitizing the surface on which the ice maker is installed because it
allows you to move the unit and have easy access to the surface to be cleaned.
IMPORTANT: Once you are ready to install the ice maker in a cabinet or directly on the
floor, you must adjust the feet to level the ice maker and lock the rollers. If the floor is
level, just revolve the two front feet to touch the floor. (See illustration.)
Water Supply and Drain Connections
The water supply and drain should be ready at the point of installation. A wall outlet directly
behind the ice maker will make installation easier.
IMPORTANT:
1. All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements. Professional
installation is recommended.
2. Make certain that the hoses are not pinched or kinked or damaged during installation.
3. Check for leaks after connection.
Tools required:
 ½ inch open-end wrench
 Phillips screwdriver
11
Connecting the water line:
1. Turn off main water supply. Turn on nearest faucet long enough to clear the line of water.
2. Find a ½ in. to ¾ in. vertical cold water pipe near the installation location. The distance
should be less than 9 feet. The water supply hose provided with the ice maker is about
9 feet.
3. A shut-off valve must be installed to the main water supply. If the water pipe has a
plain piece of copper tubing, attach a ¼” O.D. compression union to the tubing and
remove the nut.
4. Connect nuts of water supply hose to tap and water inlet valve. Tighten firmly by hand,
then one-half turn with wrench.
5. Turn on main water supply and tap. Check for water supply connection leaks. Tighten
any connections (including connections at the valve) or nuts that leak.

NOTE: Connection to the water line may vary according to installation requirements.
Drain Line:
IMPORTANT: This ice maker is not a freezer. It must connect to a drain line. Your
machine comes equipped with a gravity drain. Depending on your plumbing setup, a
condensation pump may be required. Poor drainage will cause a high rate of melting in
the ice storage bin and may cause flooding or your machine to shut off.
Connecting the drain line:
NOTE: If there is a drain line near the ice maker or the ice maker will be used as an
outdoor unit, the best choice is to drain water to the drain line through the drain hose
provided with ice maker.
1. Locate the floor drain near the ice maker. The distance should be less than 5 feet since
the length of the long drain hose provided with the ice maker is about 5 feet.
2. Find the drain outlet on the back of ice maker, then take off the rear drainage plug.
Connect the nut of the drain outlet to the water draining hose, and insert the other side of
the hose into the drain line.
NOTE: The drain hose should never be allowed to hang or loop higher than the bottom
12
of the ice storage bin.
3. All horizontal runs of drain lines must have a fall of ¼” per foot. An air gap will likely
be required between the ice maker drain hose and the drain/waste receptacle. A stand
pipe with a trap below it would be acceptable for the drain/waste receptacle. A floor drain
is also acceptable.
4. Pour 1 gallon of water into the ice storage bin to check for leaks at all drain connections
and at the nut of the drain water hole. Tighten any connections or nuts that leak.
Installation Types
This ice maker has been designed for Mobile (free-standing), Enclosed (as under a cabinet)
or Built-in (sealed) installation, indoor or outdoor. In any case, there must be adequate air
space around the unit for proper ventilation. (See diagrams on page 8.)
Mobile installation:
A mobile installation will allow you to install the ice maker free-standing in any place you
desire provided you have access to a water supply. You must follow the stated instructions
for
a. Electrical requirements

than full.
4. Excess water will flow through the drain outlet at the back of the machine and empty into
the floor drain.
IMPORTANT:
• Although the unit has been tested at the factory, due to long-term transit and storage,
the first batch of cubes must be discarded.
• Never turn the water supply tap off when the icemaker is working.
How the Machine Makes Ice
There are two distinct cycles: freeze and harvest. During the freeze cycle, water is sprayed
against the evaporator surface. In the harvest cycle, the ice is released and water enters the
machine. A complete cycle takes about 20 minutes, but is dependent on temperature and
operating conditions.
Freeze: During the freeze cycle the compressor is pumping refrigerant, the fan motor
is blowing air, and the water pump is circulating water. When the batch of ice has been
fully formed, the ice maker stops the freeze cycle and begins to harvest the ice.
ice.
15
Harvest: During the harvest cycle the compressor is still operating, but the water pump has
stopped. Two other components have been energized: the hot gas valve and the water
inlet valve. These two valves open and warm up the freezing surface, allowing the
cubes to fall into the bin. The freeze cycle will restart when all the cubes have been
harvested.
How the machine uses water:
The ice maker
begins with a fixed
charge of water that
is contained in the
water sump. As the
water is sprayed
against the freezing
evaporator surface,
the portion of water
that does not contain
mineral impurities
will freeze and stick
to the ice cube molds.
The water containing
impurities falls back
into the water sump.
Gradually, during the
freezing portion of the ice-making cycle, the water in the sump will become highly
concentrated with mineral impurities.
During the harvest cycle, fresh water flows into the machine to dilute the bin water and
rinse the concentrated minerals down the drain.
Normal Sounds
Your new ice maker may make sounds that are not familiar to you. Most of the new sounds are
normal. Hard surfaces like the floor and walls can make the sounds seem louder than they
actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and what
may be making them.
● You will hear a swooshing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water sump for each
cycle.
● Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or the water line. Items stored on
top of the ice maker can also make noises.
● The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
16
● Water running from the water sump to the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
● Water running from the evaporator to the water sump may make a splashing sound.
● As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice
maker.
● You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
● During the harvest cycle, you may hear the sound of ice cubes falling into the ice storage bin.
● When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker
is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
Preparing the Ice Maker for Long Storage
If the ice maker will not be used for a long time, or is to be moved to another place, it will be
necessary to drain the system of water.
● Shut off the water supply at the main water source.
● Disconnect the water supply line from the water inlet valve.
● Disconnect the drain pipe to the drain line or floor drain.
● Allow the ice maker to run for an hour or more until all remaining ice cubes have been ejected
from the ice maker assembly.
● Shut off the electric supply at the main electrical power source.
● Screw off the nut of the water drain hole at the back of the machine, drain out water residue
completely (do not loosen or screw off the nut at other times), then tighten the nut after
finishing.
● Leave the door open to allow for circulation and prevent mold and mildew.
● Leave water supply line and power cord disconnected until ready to reuse.
17
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
If the ice maker is left unused for a long time, before the next use it must
be thoroughly cleaned. Follow carefully any instructions provided for
cleaning or use of sanitizing solution.
Do not leave any solution inside the ice maker after cleaning.
Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will ensure efficiency, top performance, and long life.
The maintenance intervals listed are based on normal conditions. You may want to shorten the
intervals if you have pets or the unit is used outdoors or there are other special considerations.
What shouldn’t be done
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice: objects like wine and beer bottles are
not only unsanitary, but the labels may slip off and plug up the drain.
What should be kept clean
There are 4 things to keep clean:
1. The exterior
2. The condenser
3. The interior
4. The ice making system
Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations,
make sure the power line of the unit is disconnected and the water
line is shut off (EXCEPTION: Ice maker system cleaning).
Exterior Cleaning
18
The door and cabinet may be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water solution such as 1 oz of
dishwashing liquid mixed with 2 gallons of warm water. Do not use solvent-based or abrasive cleaners.
Use a soft sponge and rinse with clean water. Wipe with a soft clean towel to prevent water spotting.
Stainless steel can discolor when exposed to chlorine gas and should be cleaned. Clean stainless
steel with a mild detergent and warm water solution and a damp cloth. Never use abrasive
cleaning agents.
NOTICE: Stainless steel exposed to chlorine gas and moisture, such as in areas with spas
or swimming pools, may show some discoloration. Discoloration from chlorine gas is normal.
Condenser Cleaning
1. A dirty or clogged condenser prevents proper airflow, reduces ice making capacity, and
causes higher than recommended operating temperatures that may lead to component failure.
Have the condenser cleaned at least once every six months.
2. Unplug the ice maker or disconnect power.
3. Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the front cover. Grasp the lower edge of the front cover
at the right and left sides, raise it a little and then pull down.
NOTE: Do not use too much force, as the wire leads connected to the power switch can be
inadvertently disconnected.
4. Locate the condenser surface.
Condenser surface
5. Remove dirt and lint from the condenser fins and the unit compartment with a brush
attachment on a vacuum cleaner.
6. Reassemble the front cover.
7. Plug in the ice maker or reconnect power.
DO NOT touch condenser fins. They are sharp and
can be damaged easily.
19
Interior Cleaning
The ice storage bin should be sanitized occasionally. Clean the bin before the ice maker is
used for the first time and reused after stopping for an extended period of time. It is usually
convenient to sanitize the bin after the ice making system has been cleaned and the storage
bin is empty.
1.
Disconnect power to the unit.
2. Open the door and with a clean cloth, wipe down the interior with a sanitizing
solution made of 1 ounce of household bleach or chlorine and 2 gallons of warm water
(95º to 115ºF).
3.
Rinse thoroughly with clear water. The waste water will be drained off through the
drainpipe.
4.
Reconnect power to the unit.
The ice scoop should be washed regularly. Wash it just like any other food container.
DO NOT use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on
the interior. These cleaners may transmit taste to the ice
cubes, or damage or discolor the interior.
Cleaning the sprinkler:
IMPORTANT NOTE: The sprinkler should only be cleaned when you find that some of
the ice cubes are improperly shaped during ice making. Cleaning the ice making system
should follow cleaning of the sprinkler.
1. Disconnect power to the unit and open the door.
20
2.
Take out the row of flake covers by snapping one end up and pulling forward.
3.
Remove the slideway from the water sump.
4.
Find the sprinkler arm and raise it. Disconnect it from the water tube which is
connected at the back of the sprinkler arm.
5.
A de-scaling solution can be prepared in a plastic basin with Nu-Calgon Nickel-Safe
Ice Machine Cleaner. Mix 4 ounces of the ice machine cleaner per gallon of warm
water.
Remove the sprinkler arm from the interior. Thoroughly clean the sprinkler arm
by soaking it in the basin filled with the de-scaling solution until it is free of any deposit;
use a soft brush to remove any thick or stubborn residue and to help the dissolving
action. Rinse under a stream of tap water.
6.
Wipe down the interior of the water sump with the de-scaling solution and warm
21
water. Rinse thoroughly with clear water.
7.
Reassemble the sprinkler arm, slideway and row of flake covers.

remove the mineral scale buildup. How
often you need to clean the system depends
upon how hard your water is or how
effective your filtration may be. With hard
water of 15 to 20 grains/gal. (4 to 5
grains/liter), you may need to clean the
system as often as every 6 months.
1. Turn off power to the ice maker. Keep the ice maker connected to the water supply
