appliance or property.
IMPORTANT
Indicates important information about the installation, use, and
care of the appliance.
WARNING
The appliance should be destined only to the use for which it has been expressly
conceived. Any other use should be considered improper and therefore dangerous.
The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for injury or damage resulting
from improper, incorrect, and unreasonable use. Failure to install, operate, and
maintain the appliance in accordance with this manual will adversely affect safety,
performance, component life, and warranty coverage and may result in costly water
damage.
To reduce the risk of death, electric shock, serious injury, or fire, follow basic
precautions including the following:
• Only qualified service technicians should install and service the appliance.
• The appliance must be installed in accordance with applicable national, state, and
local codes and regulations.
• Electrical connection must be hard-wired and must meet national, state, and local
electrical code requirements. Failure to meet these code requirements could result
in death, electric shock, serious injury, fire, or damage.
• The icemaker requires an independent power supply of proper capacity. See the
nameplate for electrical specifications. Failure to use an independent power supply
of proper capacity can result in a tripped breaker, blown fuse, damage to existing
wiring, or component failure. This could lead to heat generation or fire.
• THE ICEMAKER MUST BE GROUNDED. Failure to properly ground the icemaker
could result in death or serious injury.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not touch the control switch with damp
hands.
• Move the control switch to the "OFF" position and turn off the power supply before
servicing. Lockout/Tagout to prevent the power supply from being turned back on
inadvertently.
• Do not make any alterations to the appliance. Alterations could result in electric
shock, serious injury, fire, or damage.
• The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the
appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

5. Line Set Installation
Precharged factory line sets, available as optional equipment from Hoshizaki America,
are recommended. For details, see "II.G.5.a) Factory Line Set Installation." Field
fabricated line sets are allowed. For details, see "II.G.5.b) Field Fabricated Line Set
Installation."
a) Factory Line Set Installation
1) Route the factory line set (see "II.G.4 Line Set Size and Refrigerant Charge" for
details) from the remote condenser unit to the icemaker. Leave a service loop behind
the icemaker to allow the icemaker to be pulled out for service. See Fig. 11. Factory
fabricated line sets are precharged and do not need to be evacuated. If the line set is
too long or too short, see "II.G.5.a)(1) Factory Line Set Modification."
NOTICE
• Ensure that there are no traps and no kinks in the line set. The service loop is not
considered an oil trap.
• Do not coil extra line set.
2) Connect the refrigerant lines to the appropriate male fittings on the remote condenser
unit first and then at the icemaker. Make a proper connection as follows:
a. Remove the protective covers from the male fitting and female coupling.
b. Apply Polyol Ester (POE) refrigerant oil or Parker Super O Lube to the entire male
fitting, including O‑ring, diaphragm, and threads before making the connection.
See Fig. 12. NOTICE! Do not use thread sealant on the fittings. Use POE
refrigerant oil or Parker Super O Lube only. Couplings are one-time use only.
c. Make sure the male fitting and female coupling are properly aligned, then start the
connection by hand to ensure that it is not cross threaded.
d. Place a backup wrench on the back of the female coupling, then tighten the
connection with a wrench until it is tight. At this point, the nut has covered most of
the threads on the male fitting. NOTICE! Failure to use a backup wrench may
result in damage to the line set and possible refrigerant leaks.
e. Mark a reference line on the female coupling and the remote condenser unit or
icemaker panel. Using a backup wrench on the back of the female coupling, tighten
the six-sided nut of the female coupling an additional 1/6 turn. See Fig. 13.
NOTICE! Confirm connection is free of leaks.
3) If you lengthened the line set as outlined in "II.G.5.a)(1) Factory Line Set Modification"
and it exceeds 66' (20 m), see "II.G.4. Line Set Size and Refrigerant Charge" for proper
charging of the appliance.
26
(1) Factory Line Set Modification
1) Recover the line set charge through the Schrader access ports on the Parker quick
connect couplings and store it in an approved container. Do not discharge the
refrigerant into the atmosphere. Remove the extra line set length or add extra tubing.
When adding extra tubing, insulate the additional copper tubes separately.
2) Use an electronic leak detector or soap bubbles to check for leaks. Add a trace
of refrigerant to the lines through the Schrader access ports on the Parker quick
connect couplings (if using an electronic leak detector), and then raise the pressure
using nitrogen gas (140 PSIG). WARNING! Do not use R-404A as a mixture with
pressurized air for leak testing.
3) Evacuate through the Schrader access ports on the Parker quick connect couplings and
charge with R-404A refrigerant vapor to a pressure of 15 to 30 PSIG. Go to step 2 in
"II.G.5.a) Factory Line Set Installation."
b) Field Fabricated Line Set Installation
1) Route the copper tube liquid line and copper tube discharge line (see "II.G.4 Line
Set Size and Refrigerant Charge" for details) from the remote condenser unit to the
icemaker. Leave a service loop behind the icemaker to allow the icemaker to be pulled
out for service. See Fig. 11.
NOTICE
• Ensure that there are no traps and no kinks in the line set. The service loop is not
considered an oil trap.
• Do not coil extra line set. Fabricate the line set to the proper length.
2) Insulate the two copper tubes separately.
3) Install Parker quick connect couplings on each end. OS-QUICK, a universal quick
connect coupling kit available as optional equipment from Hoshizaki America, is
recommended. NOTICE! Before brazing, remove the Schrader valve core from the
access port. When brazing, protect the coupling by using a wet cloth to prevent
the coupling from overheating. Do not use silver alloy or copper alloy containing
arsenic.
4) Allow the coupling to cool, then replace the Schrader valve core.
5) Use an electronic leak detector or soap bubbles to check for leaks. Add a trace
of refrigerant to the lines through the Schrader access ports on the Parker quick
connect couplings (if using an electronic leak detector), and then raise the pressure
using nitrogen gas (140 PSIG). WARNING! Do not use R-404A as a mixture with
pressurized air for leak testing.
6) Evacuate through the Schrader access ports on the Parker quick connect couplings and
charge with R-404A refrigerant vapor to a pressure of 15 to 30 PSIG.
27
7) Connect the refrigerant lines to the appropriate male fittings on the remote condenser
unit first and then at the icemaker. Make a proper connection as follows:
a. Remove the protective covers from the male fitting and female coupling.
b. Apply Polyol Ester (POE) refrigerant oil or Parker Super O Lube to the entire male
fitting, including O‑ring, diaphragm, and threads, before making the connection.
See Fig. 12. NOTICE! Do not use thread sealant on the fittings. Use POE
refrigerant oil or Parker Super O Lube only. Couplings are one-time use only.
c. Make sure the male fitting and female coupling are properly aligned, then start the
connection by hand to ensure that it is not cross threaded.
d. Place a backup wrench on the back of the female coupling, then tighten the
connection with a wrench until it is tight. At this point, the nut has covered most of
the threads on the male fitting. NOTICE! Failure to use a backup wrench may
result in damage to the line set and possible refrigerant leaks.
e. Mark a reference line on the female coupling and the remote condenser unit or
icemaker panel. Using a backup wrench on the back of the female coupling, tighten
the six-sided nut of the female coupling an additional 1/6 turn. See Fig. 13.
NOTICE! Confirm connection is free of leaks.
