result in substantial water leakage and pooling with severe and costly water damage
and related consequential damages and harm.
Site Preparation
PREPARING THE SITE
IMPOR
TANT
IMPORT
It is extremely important that the unit is level. If it is not level, the ice mold will not fill
evenly. This can cause a reduction in ice rate, uneven sized cubes or water spilling into
the storage area which will cause the ice in the bin to melt pre-maturely. Remember that
floors near drains have a tendency to slope towards the drain.
1
Position the unit on a flat, level surface, capable of supporting the entire
weight of the unit. Remember that the unit will be significantly heavier once it
is fully loaded.
2
The surrounding air temperature must be at least 50°F (10°C) but must not
exceed 110°F (43°C).
3
The unit must not be located near heat-generating equipment or in direct
sunlight.

DANGER
ELECTROCUTION HAZARD!
Electrical Grounding Required. This appliance is equipped with a three prong
(grounding) polarized plug for your protection against possible shock hazards.
• NEVER remove the round grounding prong from the plug.
• NEVER use a two-prong grounding adapter.
• NEVER use an extension cord to connect power to the unit.
Where a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered or a longer power cord is required,
contact a qualified electrician to have it replaced in accordance with applicable
electrical codes.
4
The unit must be located to allow clearance for water, drain and electrical
connections in the rear of the ice maker.
5
Connect the unit to a grounded and polarized 115 VAC, 60 Hz, 15 A circuit
(normal household current).

Start-up
INITIAL START-UP
Once installation and leveling is complete, the unit is ready for initial start-up and
operation. Your unit is shipped in the OFF position, however, you may turn it ON/
OFF using the cycle selector switch located in the access panel above the grille
(see Figure 26).
1
Plug the appliance cord into a 115V polarized and
grounded electrical outlet.
2
Open the water supply valve in the main water source.
3
Place the cycle selector switch in the ON position. The
water fill valve will energize and fill the water reservoir.
The water fill valve shuts off after 180 seconds. The
compressor begins to operate and water flows over the
evaporator assembly (ice cube tray).

CYCLE
SELECTOR SWITCH
Upon initial start-up, water flow over the evaporator may
be uneven. This may cause uneven sized cubes or
water spilling into the ice storage bin. This is a normal
situation and will correct itself within the first 24 hours of
operation. After the initial start-up period, the water will
cascade evenly over the evaporator.
IMPOR

It is possible that dirt or scale will dislodge in the water line. Always throw away all ice
cubes made during the first two to three hours of operation.

22 Operation
NORMAL OPERATION
The ice maker is designed to make clear ice from most water sources on a
consistent basis. Water is constantly circulated over the evaporator assembly. As
the water freezes, gravity causes any sediment to drop into the water trough and
not become imbedded in the ice. This gives a clearer ice cube with a low mineral
content. When the ice reaches the desired thickness, it falls off the evaporator and
into the storage bin. The cycle is then repeated. When the level of ice reaches the
top of the storage bin the unit shuts off. As the ice level in the bin drops the unit will
automatically restart to keep the bin full. Your unit’s ice production rate may vary
depending on many considerations. Ambient air temperatures, water
temperatures, condenser cleanliness and ice-maker cleanliness are all
contributing factors to how quickly the unit produces ice. Certain sounds are
normal during the unit’s operation. You may hear the compressor or fan motor, the
water valve, the water circulation pump or ice dropping into the ice storage bin.
Ice Cube Thickness
Your Electrolux ice maker uses advanced technology to make ice that is crystal
clear. This technology cascades a flow of water over a chilled ice mold that is
mounted vertically so no water sits in it. Because of this ice making technology,
clear ice cubes differ significantly from regular ice cubes. Differences are
illustrated in Figure 27:
•
Dimples. Electrolux clear ice cubes
have “dimples” on one side from the
cascading water process.
•
Cube Variations. Cubes made from
different batches, or even cubes
within the same batch may have
varying dimples, thickness and/or
sizes due to the cascading water
process.
•
Cube “slabbing”. Electrolux clear
ice makers produce a “slab” of ice
that falls from the vertical mold,
relying on gravity to break the ice
bridges. Depending on the control
setting, and the fullness of the ice
bucket, it maybe necessary to tap the
ice slab with the ice scoop to break it
apart.

the cubes to stay together as a slab
increases. A bridge thicker than 1/8"
may cause cubes to over-fill the ice
bucket.

Maintenance
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS
•
For best performance, keep the unit out of direct sunlight.
•
Turn the unit OFF and dispose of any ice cubes if the unit will not be used for
5 days or more. Prop door open to allow for air circulation and prevent mold
and mildew.
•
If the ambient temperature is expected to drop below 45°F (7°C), drain all
water from the unit to prevent freezing damage not covered by the warranty.
•
High ambient temperatures, 110°F (43°C) or higher, may reduce the unit’s
ability to reach low temperatures and may also reduce the ice production
rate.
MAINTAINING AND CLEANING YOUR ICEMAKER
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 other special considerations.
Exterior Cleaning - As Required
The door, grille and cabinet may be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water
solution. 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 Models
•
Stainless steel models may discolor when exposed to chlorine gas, pool
chemicals, salt water or cleaners with bleach.
•
Keep your stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a high quality, all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner/polish on a monthly basis. Frequent cleaning will
remove surface contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations will
require cleaning on a weekly basis.
25
26 Maintenance
• DO NOT CLEAN WITH STEEL WOOL PADS.
• DO NOT USE CLEANERS THAT ARE NOT SPECIFICALLY INTENDED FOR
STAINLESS STEEL (this includes glass, tile and counter cleansers).
• If any surface discolors or rusting appears, clean it quickly with Bon-Ami or
Barkeepers Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive cloth. Always clean in the
direction of the grain. Always finish this process with a high quality, all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner/polish to prevent further problems.
• USE OF ABRASIVE PADS SUCH AS SCOTCHBRITE WILL CAUSE THE
GRAINING IN THE STAINLESS TO BECOME BLURRED.
• Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate into the surface of the stainless
steel and become impossible to remove.
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
Stainless steel models exposed to chlorine gas and moisture, such as areas with spas
or swimming pools, may have some discoloration of the stainless steel. Discoloration
from chlorine gas is normal. Follow exterior cleaning instructions.
Interior Cleaning - As Required
1
Disconnect power to the ice maker.
2
Open the door and remove any ice from the storage bin.
