Automatic ice maker operation needs water pressure of 147~834kPa (1.5~8.5
kgf/cm2) (That is, an instant paper cup (180 cc) will be fully filled within 3 sec.).
If water pressure does not reach the rating 147 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm2) or below, it is
necessary to purchase a separate pressure pump for normal automatic icing and
cool water feed.
Keep the total length of the feed water pipe tube within 12 m and be careful for the
