Installing the Ice Maker
Warning: Use two or more people to move and install the ice maker. Failure to do so can result in
back or other injury.
The ice maker should be installed by a licensed plumber in accordance with local electrical and
plumbing code requirements.
Before you plug the ice maker in, be sure to let it stand upright for at least 24 hours to allow the
compressor’s oils to settle.
Unpacking the Ice Maker
Important: Do not remove any safety, warning, or product information labels from your ice maker.
Carefully remove the packaging materials. Remove any shipping tape and glue from your ice maker
before using. Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners
to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your icemaker.
Types of Installation
This ice maker has been designed for freestanding, recessed, or built-in installation. In each case,
there must be adequate ventilation and access for service in a location where the ambient
temperature is between 50° and 100° F. Do not install near heat sources.
Freestanding installation:
Freestanding installation will allow you to install the icemaker in any place with access to a water
supply and a drain. You must follow the instructions for electrical requirements, water supply and
drain, and leveling the icemaker.
Recessed installation:
Recessed installation will allow you to install the icemaker under a counter or in a kitchen cabinet
provided the required clearance space around the ice maker is followed. This installation has the
same requirements as a built-in installation.
Built-in installation:
It is necessary to allow adequate ventilation space around the unit (make sure there is at least
some ventilation room for the back of the unit). The following additional items must be observed.
1. Place the ice maker in front of the installation location. Remove the feet and place the unit flat
on the floor or on a platform depending on your installation requirements.
2. The water supply pipe must be plumbed before connecting to the ice maker. Install the drain
line into your drain.
3. Turn on the main water supply and tap. Check for water supply connection leaks. Tighten any
connections (including connections at the tie-in).
4. If the electrical outlet for the ice maker is behind the cabinet, plug in the ice maker.
5. Push the ice maker into position.
6. Seal all around the cabinet to the floor with an approved caulking compound.
3
Installation Clearance Requirements
Note: This icemaker should be installed by a licensed plumber only.
• To ensure proper service access and ventilation, allow more than 2” of clearance at the rear
and 1/4” at the top and sides. The installation should allow the icemaker 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 50° F and below 100° F. This unit
MUST be installed in an area protected from the elements, e.g., wind, rain, water spray, or
drips.
• The icemaker should not be located next to ovens, grills, or other high heat sources.
• The ice maker requires a continuous water supply with a minimum pressure of 15 psi and a
static pressure not to exceed 80 psi. The temperature of the water feeding into the ice
maker should be between 41° F and 90° F for proper operation. The ambient operational
temperature should be between 50° F and 100° F. Operation outside these temperatures
may result in lowered production or other adverse effects.
•
•
The unit should be located on a firm and level surface. It is important for the ice maker to be level
in order to work properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of the ice maker by rotating the feet.
See the “Leveling the Ice Maker” section.
A standard electrical supply (115 VAC only, 60 Hz, 15 A), properly grounded in accordance with
National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances is required.
Important: Don’t kink or pinch the power supply cord between the ice maker and the wall or
cabinet.
4
Electrical Requirements
Electrical Shock Hazard
• Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
• Never remove the grounding prong from the plug.
• Never use an adapter.
• Never use an extension cord.
• Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire, electrical shock, or death
Before you move your icemaker into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the
proper electrical connection:
A standard electrical supply (115 V, 60Hz.), 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 icemaker, be provided. Use receptacles
that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amps.
Recommended Grounding Method
For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. It 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, 3prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.
5
Leveling the Ice Maker
It is important for the icemaker to be leveled in order to work properly. It can be raised or lowered by
rotating the four feet on the bottom of the machine. If you find that the surface is not level, rotate the
feet 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.
1. Place a carpenter’s level on top of the icemaker to see if it is level from front to back and side to
side.
2. Adjust the height of the feet as follows:
Turn the leveling feet to the right to lower that corner of the ice maker.
Turn the leveling feet to the left to raise that corner of the icemaker.
Important: Once you are ready to install it in a cabinet or directly on the floor, you must adjust the
feet to level the ice maker.
Reversing the Door Swing
Tools needed: flathead screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver
Important: Before you begin, unplug the ice maker or disconnect the power.
1. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, remove the screws and take off the top hinge. Keep the
parts together and set them aside.
2. Lift the door off of the bottom hinge and turn it upside down so that the handle is on the right.
Set the door aside.
3. Using a flathead screwdriver, remove the plugs from the screw holes opposite the top hinge.
Set them aside.
4. Using a Phillips screwdriver remove the bottom hinge and install it on the opposite side.
5. Position the door on the bottom hinge.
6. Align the door on the bottom hinge and replace the top hinge.
7. Replace the plugs on top and screws for the lower hinge opposite from where they were
removed.
6
Water Supply and Drain Connections
The water supply should be ready at the point of installation. The water supply pressure should be a
minimum of 15 psi with a static pressure of no more than 80 psi. (A wall outlet directly behind the ice
maker will make installation easier.) When you connect the water supply hose and drain hose, pay
attention to the label on the back that indicates the location of the water inlet and water outlet.
Important:
1. All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
2. Make certain that the pipes are not pinched or kinked or damaged during installation.
3. Check for leaks after connection.
Connecting the Water Supply Line
1. Turn off main water supply. Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear the line of water.
2. Find a ½” to ¾” 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 long.
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 the water supply hose to the tap and water inlet valve. Tighten firmly by
hand, then tighten one-half turn with a 1/2 “ open-end wrench.
5. Turn on the main water supply and tap. Check for water supply connection leaks. Tighten
every connection (including connections at the water inlet).
Note: In general, it is always a good idea to filter the water. A water filter 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.
Connecting the Drain Line
Note: There is a drain outlet on the ice maker. Please drain water through the drain hose provided
with the ice maker.
1. Locate the floor drain near the ice maker. The distance should be less than 4.5 feet since the
length of the long drain hose provided with the ice maker is about 4.5 feet.
2. Connect the drain hose to the back of the ice maker, then insert the other end of the hose into
the floor drain.
3. All horizontal runs of drain lines must have a fall of 1/4” 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 would also
be acceptable.
4. Pour 1 gallon of water into the ice storage bin to check for proper drainage.
Note: A condensate pump can allow for installation further from your drain. Consult your plumber
for advice.
7
Operation
Final Check List before Operation
1. Have all packing materials and tape been removed from the interior and exterior of the ice
maker?
2. Did you clean the ice storage bin?
3. Have the installation instructions been followed, including connecting the machine to water and
electricity? Does the unit have proper drainage?
4. Has the machine been leveled?
5. Is the ice maker in a site where the ambient temperature is between 50º F and 100º F and the
water temperature is between 41º F and 90º F all year round?
6. Has the water supply pressure been checked to ensure a minimum of 15 psig with a static
pressure not to exceed 80 psig?
7. Is there a clearance of at least 2” at the rear and 1/4” at the top and the sides for proper air
circulation?
8. Has the power supply voltage been checked or tested against the nameplate rating? And has
proper grounding been installed for the ice maker?
9. Is the ice maker plugged in?
10. Have you turned on the main water supply and the tap?
11. Have you checked for leaks at all water supply connections and at the drain?
Operating Method
1. Turn on the water tap, let the water trough fill, then switch the ICE/OFF/WASH switch on the front
panel to the ICE position. The ice maker will start working automatically.
2. After three minutes, the machine will automatically go to the ice making stage, and the sound of
flowing water will be heard.
3. When the batch of ice has been fully formed, ice will automatically be harvested to the ice
storage bin.
4. When the ice storage bin is full, the sheet of cubes will not fall completely and will hold the ice
slide down. The machine stops making ice automatically.
5. The unit will start making ice again after the ice cubes are removed. At that time, the ice slide will
swing back to operating position.
Important:
• Although the unit has been tested and cleaned 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 ice maker is working.
• Never touch the evaporator when the machine is running.
• Except to take ice from the unit, keep the door closed to reduce melting and ensure proper ice
formation.
8
How the Machine Makes Ice
Turn the ICE/OFF/WASH switch to the ICE position. The machine will automatically start the ice
making stage. There are two distinct cycles: freeze and harvest. During the freeze cycle, water flows
across the evaporator surface to form the ice. In the harvest cycle, the ice is released. A complete
cycle can take 15 to 40 minutes, depending 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 the harvest cycle.
Harvest
During the harvest cycle the compressor is still operating, but the water pump has stopped. The hot gas
valve opens, diverting hot refrigerant gas into the evaporator. The gas warms the evaporator, causing the
cubes to slide, as a unit, off the evaporator and into the storage bin. The freeze cycle will restart when all
the cubes have been harvested.
How the Machine Uses the Water
The ice maker begins with a fixed charge of water that is contained in the water trough. During the
ice-making process, fresh water enters the water trough continuously as the water from the trough
freezes on the evaporator.
9
Control Panel (rear of unit)
1. Ice Full (Red) LED: Ice Full indicator light.
When this LED is lit, the ice storage bin is full of ice or there is something obstructing the ice
slide. The unit will stop producing ice. When ice cubes are removed from the ice storage bin,
clearing the ice slide, the red LED will keep flashing for 3 minutes. Then the unit will restart
and return to the ice making mode.
2. Ice Making (Green) LED: Ice Making indicator light.
When this LED is lit or flashing, the unit is working in the ice making mode.
3. Ice Harvest (Yellow) LED: Ice Harvest indicator light.
When this LED is lit, the unit is working in the Ice Harvest mode.
4. Mode button: Mainly for service.
When this button is pressed, the unit can change from Ice Making mode to Ice Harvest
mode, or from Ice Harvest mode to Ice Making mode. The mode can be determined from the
status of the green and yellow LEDs.
5. Ice Size Adjust button: When this is pressed and held for 3 seconds, the unit will enter the
Ice Size Adjustment mode. Once in this mode, press 'Clean' to decrease the ice size, or
press 'Mode' to increase the ice size. Please note that there are five larger ice sizes and five
smaller ice sizes from the default setting. The current ice size can be determined from the
status of the red, green, and yellow LEDs. The green, yellow, and red LEDs flashing
synchronously indicates the default ice size. When decreasing the ice size with the ‘Clean’
button, the red LED will flash once and the green LED will flash continuously. The red and
green LEDs flashing synchronously indicate that the smallest ice size has been reached.
When increasing the ice size with the ‘Mode’ button, the yellow LED will flash once and the
green LED will flash continuously. The yellow and green LEDs flashing synchronously
indicate that the largest ice size has been reached.
Important:
• It’s not recommended that the ice size be adjusted unnecessarily since this could damage the
machine’s controls.
• Do not let water contact the control panel.
10
Normal Sounds
Your new icemaker 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.
• Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or the water line. Items stored on top of
the icemaker can also make noises.
• The high efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
• Water running from the evaporator to the water bin may make a splashing sound.
• As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your
icemaker.
• 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 storing bin.
Preparing the Icemaker for Long Storage
Important: Do not touch the power plug when your hands are wet. Never unplug the unit by pulling
on the plug.
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.
1. Shut off the water supply at the main water source.
2. Disconnect the water supply line from the water inlet.
3. Shut off the electric supply at the main electrical power source.
4. Take out the ice storage bin to remove ice and water. Dry it.
6. Pull off the drainage tube of the water trough to drain off all water. Wipe it Dry.
7. Leave the door open to allow for circulation and to prevent mold and mildew.
8. Leave the water supply line and power cord disconnected until ready to reuse.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Caution: The icemaker must be thoroughly cleaned if it has been left unused for a long time.
Carefully follow any instructions provided for cleaning or use of sanitizing solution. Do not leave
any solution inside the icemaker 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 there are other special considerations.
Note: 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.
11
What Should be Kept Clean?
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The exterior
2. The ice bin and water trough
3. The condenser
4. The water distribution tube
5. The ice-making system
Warning: 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: Cleaning of ice-making
system)
Exterior Cleaning
The door and cabinet may be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water solution such as 1
ounce 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. If the door panel has a stainless finish, it can discolor when exposed to
chlorine gas and moisture. Clean stainless finish with a cloth dampened with a mild detergent and
warm water solution. Never use an abrasive cleaning agent.
Ice Bin and Water Trough Cleaning
The ice storage bin should be sanitized occasionally. Clean the water trough before the ice maker is
used for the first time or reused after stopping for an extended period of time. It is usually convenient
to sanitize the trough after the ice making system has been cleaned (see section Ice Making System
Cleaning) and the ice storage bin is empty.
1. Disconnect power to the unit.
2. Open the door and take out the removable storage bin. With a clean cloth, wipe down the interior
of the unit with a sanitizing solution made of a mild detergent and hot water (95º F to 115º F).
3. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
4. Put the cleaned and empty ice storage bin back inside the unit.
5. Reconnect power to the unit.
The ice scoop should be washed regularly. Wash it just like any other utensil.
Warning: 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.
12
Condenser Cleaning
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.
1. Unplug the ice maker or disconnect power.
2. Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the front cover and gently pull it off.
3. Locate the condenser directly behind the front cover.
4. Remove dirt and lint from condenser fans and the unit compartment with a brush attachment on
a vacuum cleaner.
5. Reattach the front cover.
6. Plug in the icemaker or reconnect power.
Warning: DO NOT touch the condenser fins. They are sharp and can be damaged easily.
Water Distribution Tube Cleaning
When you find that the ice cubes are incompletely formed or the output of ice cubes is low, the
water distribution tube may be blocked. Set the ICE/OFF/WASH switch to OFF, rotate the water
distribution tube, and locate the holes in the distribution tube. Using a toothpick or similar tool,
dredge the holes, then rotate the water distribution tube back to its original position. If the tube is
badly blocked, clean it as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Shut off the water supply.
Disconnect the water hose from the distribution tube by cutting the zip tie.
Remove the 2 Phillips screws from the splash guard and set the parts aside.
Lift the right side of the water distribution tube, then remove it.
Remove the inner tube from the outer tube.
With a brush, clean the tubes with a dilute solution of warm water and a mild detergent such as
dishwashing liquid. After removing dirt and debris from the surface, rinse the tubes with clean
water.
7. Replace the inner tube into the outer tube making sure it lines up correctly. The notch on the inner
tube must lock into place. The inner tube should not rotate when inserted correctly. The water
distribution tube will leak in not reassembled correctly.
8. Reconnect the water hose and replace the zip tie.
9. Replace the water distribution tube into the unit.
10. Replace the splash guard.
11. Turn on the water supply.
13
Ice-making System Cleaning
Caution:
• Many ice machine cleaners contain acids.
• DO NOT use or mix with any other solvent-based cleaner products.
• Use rubber gloves to protect your hands.
• Carefully read all safety instructions printed on the container of the ice machine cleaner.
• Discard the first batch of ice produced after cleaning
Minerals that are removed from water during the freezing cycle will eventually form a hard scaly
deposit in the water system. Cleaning the system regularly helps 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/gallon (4 to 5 grains/liter), you may need to
clean the system as often as every 6 months.
1. Make sure that all the ice is off of the evaporator. If ice is being made, wait for cycle completion,
then turn the machine “OFF” at the ICE/OFF/WASH selector switch.
2. Remove all ice from the storage bin.
3. Keep the ice maker connected to the water supply, Pour 200 g of Nickel-Safe Ice Maker Cleaner
Solution into the water trough. After about 5 minutes, initiate the wash cycle at the
ICE/OFF/WASH selector switch by placing the switch in the “WASH” position. The machine will
run the Automatic Clean Mode.
4. Allow 30 minutes for proper cleaning. After cleaning, turn the machine “OFF” at the
ICE/OFF/WASH selector switch. Drain off the waste water to some container by drain pipe in the
left of the water trough.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 (without Ice Maker Cleaning Solution) to rinse the ice making system 3
times.
▪ Note: The use of the Ice Maker Cleaner Solution in the water bin during the rinse is not
needed.
6. Prepare a sanitizing solution made of a mild detergent and hot water (95º F to 115º F). Wipe the
entire bin inside and out.
7. Fill a spray bottle with the sanitizing solution and spray all corners and edges, making sure to
