Water Quality
All water, including potable water supplied by
municipalities, contains some impurities or
minerals. Water absorbs impurities from the air as
rain and/or as it flows through the ground. Some of
the impurities are solid particles, these are known
as suspended solids, and a fine particle filter will
remove them. Other impurities are chemically
bonded to the water molecules, and cannot be
filtered out, these are called dissolved solids.
Filters and Treatment
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. Some
methods of water treatment for dissolved solids
include reverse osmosis, and polyphosphate
feeders.
RO Water
Ice made by this machine will have a lower mineral
content than the water it was made from. This is
due to the method of making ice. Purer water will
freeze first in the ice making molds. The reason for
this is that anything dissolved in water lowers the
water’s freezing temperature. This concentrates
most of the impurities in the ice machine water
reservoir where they may form hard deposits
known as scale. The machine dilutes the
concentration of minerals by over-filling the
reservoir during the harvest cycle (with the excess
water flowing down the drain). s. Between 2 and 4
pints of water flow into the unit each cycle.
Between 1 and 3.5 pints of that rinses the reservoir
and goes down the drain.
This machine can be supplied with Reverse
Osmosis water, but the water conductivity must be
no less than 10 microSiemens/cm. A reverse
osmosis system should include post treatment to
satisfy the R.O. water’s potential aggressiveness.
Deionized water is not recommended.
Because water softeners exchange one mineral for
another, softened water may not improve water
conditions when used with ice machines. Where
water is very hard, softened water could result in
white, mushy cubes that stick together.
If in doubt about the water, contact a local point of

1. Turn on the water supply.
6. Replace the service access panel.
2. Switch on the electrical power.
7. Level the unit as needed.
3. Push and release the On/Off switch to start the
machine. The Ice Making light next to the

water pump and fan motor will begin to operate
and the first ice making cycle will have begun.
No adjustments are needed.
After about a half hour, ice will fall into the ice
storage bin. The machine makes 24 cubes per
batch. It is normal for the first batches of ice to
melt, that continues until the bin has cooled. It will
take 8 to 10 hours of continuous run time to fill the
ice bin. When the bin is full of ice, the ice machine
will shut off. It will automatically restart when the
ice level falls, either from use or normal meltage.

Installation and User's Manual
Use
No special instructions are needed for use. Just
take as much ice as you need, the machine will
replace it. A scoop is provided, and it can be stored
in the machine using the loop of tubing on the right
side as a holder. That tubing is also the ice level
sensor; ice will fill the storage bin until it's near to or
on that tube and then the machine will shut off.
The machine can be shut off anytime by just
pushing and releasing the On/Off button. The
machine will shut off at the end of the next cycle.
To shut off immediately, push and hold the On/Off
button in until the machine stops.
What shouldn’t be done?
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is
not ice. Objects like wine or beer bottles are not
only unsanitary, but the labels can slip off and plug
up the drain.
Never allow the machine to operate without regular
cleaning. The machine will last longer if it is kept
clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least
once per year, and preferably twice. Some water
conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning
of the ice making section, and some carpets or
pets will dictate more frequent cleaning of the
condenser.
Normal cubes are tapered cylinders. If the cubes
are ragged and mis-shaped, mineral scale must be
removed from the ice making system
Maintenance
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The outside cabinet & door.
2. The ice storage bin.
3. The condenser.

Water Quality:
All water, including potable water supplied by
municipalities, contains some impurities or
minerals. Water absorbs impurities from the air as
rain and/or as it flows through the ground. Some of
the impurities are solid particles, these are known
as suspended solids, and a fine particle filter will
remove them. Other impurities are chemically
bonded to the water molecules, and cannot be
filtered out, these are called dissolved solids.
Ice made by this machine will have a lower mineral
content than the water it was made from. This is
due to the method of making ice. Purer water will
freeze first in the ice making molds. The reason for
this is that anything dissolved in water lowers the
water’s freezing temperature. This concentrates
most of the impurities in the ice machine water
reservoir where they may form hard deposits
known as scale. The machine dilutes the
concentration of minerals by over-filling the
reservoir during the harvest cycle (with the excess
water flowing down the drain). About 3 quarts of
water flow into the unit each cycle. About 1 quart of
that rinses the reservoir and goes down the drain.
water is very hard, softened water could result in
white, mushy cubes that stick together.
If in doubt about the water, contact a local point of
use water specialist for recommendations on water
treatment.
Installation Overview
The ice machine must be connected to cold,
potable water; it must have a drain; it must be
connected to the proper power supply and must be
able circulate air through the vents at the front.
Some impurities will inevitably remain, and will stick
to the parts in the machine, and will cause
malformed ice cubes. Eventually, built up mineral
scale can shorten machine life.
To keep the machine operating properly, these
impurities or minerals will have to be regularly
dissolved by an acid cleaning, using Scotsman Ice
Scale Remover. Directions for this may be found in
the section under cleaning.
Filters and Treatment
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. Some
methods of water treatment for dissolved solids
include reverse osmosis, and polyphosphate
feeders. A reverse osmosis system should include
post treatment to satisfy the R.O. water’s potential
aggressiveness. Deionized water is not
recommended.
Because water softeners exchange one mineral for
another, softened water may not improve water
conditions when used with ice machines. Where

Installation Notes
Built In Situations: If a finished floor is to be
installed in the area after the ice machine has been
built in, shims the expected thickness of the floor
should be installed under the unit to keep the
machine level with the planned floor level.
Installations on a slab: Use a pump model and
pump the water to the point of drainage. Pump
models will pump 1 story (10 feet) high.
Installations over a crawl space or basement:
Either gravity drain or pump model units may be
used, if there is not enough room behind the
machine for a drain/waste receptacle, the drain will
have to be below the floor.
Note: When installed in a corner, the door swing
may be limited due to handle contact with the wall
or cabinet face.

INSTALLATION
To properly make and store ice, the DCE33
requires access to air, potable water, 115 volt
electricity and a drain. The machine must be
installed indoors, in a controlled environment.
Air: The ice machine uses a fan to take in room air
at the front of the machine through the right side of
the kick plate. It discharges warm air out the left
side of the kick plate. Anything placed in front of
the kick plate will restrict air flow and cause a
decrease in performance and efficiency. The
minimum air temperature the machine will operate
in is 500 F., and the maximum is 1000 F.
Water Supply: The ice machine requires a
continuous supply of potable water at no less than
20 p.s.i.g. of flowing pressure. Static water
pressure should not exceed 80 p.s.i.g. The
minimum water temperature the machine will
operate in is 400 F., and the maximum is 1000 F.
Water Quality:
There is no such thing as “pure” water; all water,
including potable water supplied by municipalities,
contains some “impurities”. Water absorbs
impurities from the air as rain and/or as it flows
through the ground. Some of the impurities are
solid particles, these are known as suspended
solids, and a fine particle filter will remove them.
Other impurities are chemically bonded to the
water molecules, and cannot be filtered out, these
are called dissolved solids.
Ice made by the DCE33 will have a lower
mineral content than the water it was made from.
To keep the machine operating properly, these
impurities or minerals will have to be regularly
dissolved by an acid cleaning, using Scotsman Ice
Machine Cleaner. Directions for this may be found
in the section under cleaning.
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. Some
methods of water treatment for dissolved solids
include reverse osmosis, and polyphosphate
feeders. A reverse osmosis system should include
post treatment to satisfy the R.O. water’s
“aggressiveness”.
Deionized water is not recommended.
Because water softeners exchange one mineral for
another, Scotsman does not recommend their use
for ice machines. Where water is very hard,
softened water may result in white, mushy cubes
that stick together.
Scotsman suggests, that if in doubt about the
water, that a local point of use water specialist be
contacted for recommendations on water
treatment.
Electricity: The machine is supplied with a cord,
and may be plugged into a wall outlet. The ice
machine should be the only device using that
circuit.
The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15
amps.
Drain: There are two DCE33 models:
Purer water will freeze first in the ice making
molds. The reason for this is that anything
dissolved in water lowers the water’s freezing
temperature.
The DCE33A-1 is a gravity drain model that
requires a drain tube that’s pitched down from the
outlet at the back of the cabinet to the connection
to the sanitary sewer.
This concentrates most of the impurities in the ice
machine water reservoir where they may form hard
deposits known as scale. The DCE33 dilutes the
concentration of minerals by over-filling the
reservoir during the harvest cycle (with the excess
water flowing down the drain). About 3 quarts of
water flow into the unit each cycle. About 1 quart
of that rinses the reservoir and goes down the
drain.
The DCE33PA-1 has a built in drain pump that will
pump water up to a drain point, such as a nearby
sink.
Some impurities will inevitably remain, and will
stick to the parts in the machine, and will cause
malformed ice cubes. Eventually, built up mineral
scale can shorten machine life.

TO INSTALL: Plumbing
The water supply and drain should be roughed in
and ready at the point of installation. A wall outlet
directly behind the ice machine will make
undercounter installation easier. All electrical,
water and drain connections must conform to local
codes.
Installation Cautions: Although the DCE33 has
been designed to be serviced in place, in some
cases it may be necessary to pull the unit out for
service. For that reason do not restrict access to
the cabinet at the front - top and bottom.
Installations on a slab: Use a pump
(DCE33PA-1) model and pump the water to the
point of drainage. Pump models will pump 1 story
high.
Installations over a crawl space or basement:
Either gravity drain or pump model units may be
used, if there is not enough room behind the
machine for a drain/waste receptacle, the drain will
have to be below the floor.
ALL PLUMBING MUST MEET LOCAL CODES
Note: When installed in a corner, the door

Shims
If a floor is to be installed after the ice machine,
shims the thickness of the floor should be installed
under the DCE33 to keep the machine level with
the floor. Also, allow 1/8" clearance on each side of
the cabinet.

AFTER INSTALLATION - OPERATION
Final Check List
How To Use:
1. Has the machine been properly uncrated, and
have all packing materials and tape been removed
from inside the bin?
The ice machine is extremely simple to use, just
turn the ice machine control knob to the on
position. The DCE33 will automatically begin to
freeze ice and will continue to do so until the bin is
full. A new machine, warm out of the box, could
take as long as 48 hours to fill and shut off.
2. Have the installation instructions been followed,
including connecting the machine to water, drain
and electricity?
Use the scoop to remove ice and place the ice
scoop in the holder provided (do not leave the
scoop on the ice, as it will gradually disappear into
the ice).
3. Has the machine been leveled?
Initial Start Up - DCE33A-1BD,
DCE33PA-1BD, DCE33A-1SSD or
DCE33PA-1SSD
What to expect from the DCE33
1. Turn on water supply.
2. With unit plugged in, rotate ice machine control
knob to the ON position.
3. Allow the unit to operate for 1 hour, and check
the size of the cubes, if they are not correct, adjust
as recommended on page 18.
4. After the cubes are confirmed to be the correct
size, replace all panels.
5. Locate the nameplate on the control box cover.
Record the serial number and date of start up here
in the manual. Keep the manual handy for future
reference.
Serial Number:___________________________
Date of initial start up:_____________________
6. Fill out and mail the Warranty Registration.
The DCE33 will release a batch of 8 ice cubes
about every 30 minutes. At the same time the
cubes fall into the storage bin, water will be
entering the ice machine and draining out.
Ice: The ice cubes are tapered cylinders about 1 14"
in diameter at the widest end; taper down to 1"
wide at the top; and are 1 18" high. When the
machine is adjusted properly, there should be a 14"
indent in the base of the cube. The ice will appear
wet when fresh, this is normal. It may also develop
frost on the outside and look cloudy - this is also
normal (the frost will disappear when liquid is
poured over the ice).
Storage: All restaurant type ice machine operate
on this principal: The ice storage bin is not
refrigerated; instead it’s heavily insulated, much
like a picnic cooler or ice chest. If the ice bin were
to be refrigerated, the ice would freeze together
into one very large cluster of ice, and would begin
to evaporate. This would yield ice that is very poor
in quality, and difficult to remove from the machine.
The DCE33 will continue to operate until ice builds
up high enough to contact the bin thermostat
sensor tube, then it will shut off. Models with a
drain pump will occasionally pump out melt water
when the machine is off. The pump will only be on
for a few seconds.
Run Time: The amount of time the DCE33 will run
to replace melted ice is about 6 hours per day. The
amount of time the ice machine will run to replace
ice removed is dependent upon how much is
removed, how clean the ice machine is, and how
hot the air and water supplied to the machine are.
A machine that has been emptied will usually take
about 24-36 hours to re-fill.
April 2013

DCE33
OPERATION
How does the machine make ice?
There are two distinct cycles: freeze and harvest.
1 freeze cycle + 1 harvest cycle = 1 batch of 8
cubes.
The Freeze cycle happens when water is sprayed
against the freezing surface. The Harvest cycle is
when the ice is released and water enters the
machine. A complete cycle takes about 30
minutes.
Freeze: During the freeze cycle the compressor is
pumping refrigerant, the fan motor is blowing air,
and the water pump is circulating water. As the
refrigerated surface absorbs heat from the water
sprayed against it, that heat is moved to the area
where the fan is blowing air. The heat is
transferred to the air, and the warmed up air is
discharged from the ice machine. At the same time
ice is forming on the refrigerated surface (located
at the upper back of the machine). When the
refrigerated surface gets cold enough, the ice
machine’s timer will start. After a few minutes the
timer will stop the freeze cycle and begin the
harvest.
Schematic Diagram - Shown In
Harvest Cycle
Harvest: During the harvest cycle the compressor
is still operating, but the spray pump and fan motor
have stopped. Two other components have been
energized; the hot gas valve and the inlet water
valve. These two valves open and warm up the
freezing surface, allowing the cubes to fall into the
bin. The timer is still turning, and when it gets to
the end of the harvest cycle, the freeze cycle will
restart.
How does the machine use water? The ice
machine begins with a fixed charge of water that is
contained in the reservoir. As the water is sprayed
against the freezing surface, the part of water that
does not contain mineral impurities will freeze and
stick to the ice cup molds. The water containing
impurities falls back into the reservoir. Gradually,
during the freezing portion of the ice making cycle,
the water in the reservoir will become highly
concentrated with mineral impurities.
During the harvest cycle fresh water flows into the
machine to dilute the reservoir water and to rinse
the concentrated minerals down the drain.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
What shouldn’t be done?
How to clean the condenser.
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is
not ice; objects like wine or beer bottles are not
only unsanitary, but the labels may slip off and plug
up the drain.
The condenser is like the radiator on a car, it has
fins and tubes that can become clogged. To clean:
Never allow the machine to operate without regular
cleaning. The machine will last longer if it is kept
clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least
once per year, and preferably twice. Some water
conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning
of the ice making section, and some carpets or
pets will dictate more frequent cleaning of the
condenser.
1. Remove the kickplate.
2. Locate the condenser surface.
3. Vacuum the surface, removing all dust and lint.
Caution: Do not dent the fins.

3. Drain the water reservoir. See page 24, Spray
Pump Repair and follow the instructions to remove
the pump hose (step 2, bottom hose only).
4. Disconnect the incoming water line at the inlet
water valve.
How to clean the ice storage bin.
The ice storage bin should be sanitized
occasionally. It is usually convenient to sanitize the
bin after the ice making system has been cleaned,
and the storage bin is empty.
A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of
household bleach and two gallons of hot (95 0F. 1150F.) water. Use a clean cloth and wipe the
interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing
solution, pour some of the solution down the drain.
Allow to air dry.

The harvest time can be adjusted so that all the ice
is released during the harvest period, with a few
seconds extra for a safety margin. The adjustment
range is between 2 to 5 minutes.
There is an adjustment screw on the surface of the
electronic timer. Rotate the screw CCW to reduce
harvest time, and CW to increase it. It should be
set to match the machine's performance. If the
machine takes 2 and a half minutes to release the
ice, the harvest time should be set to about 3
minutes.
