Do not place hands or objects on or near the ice maker’s evaporator
when it is in operation.
Do not run the power cord over carpeting or heat insulators. Do not
cover the cord. Keep the cord away from high traffic areas and never
submerge it in water.
Always turn off and unplug the ice maker from the power supply
before cleaning and servicing.

NOTICE: After unpacking your ice maker, it must rest
in an upright position for at least one hour before you
plug it in or the compressor may be damaged,
shortening the life span of the unit.

5.
Press the “SELECT” button to choose the ice cube size. If the ambient room
temperature is lower than 60°F, it is recommended that you select small or
medium sized ice cubes in order to prevent the ice from sticking together.
Open the unit’s cover, remove the ice basket, and pour water into the
water reservoir. Keep the water level below the “MAX” line marked inside
the reservoir.
Press the “POWER” button on the control panel to begin the ice making
cycle.
The ice making cycle lasts anywhere from 6 to 15 minutes, depending on
the size of the ice cubes you select and the ambient room temperature. Ice
making time may vary significantly in extremely high room temperatures.
Periodically verify the water level in the water reservoir when the ice
maker is on. If the water level is too low, the ice maker will automatically
stop and the “ADD WATER” indicator light will turn on. Press the “POWER”
button, fill the reservoir with water up to the level mark, and press the
“POWER” button again to restart the unit. Allow at least 3 minutes for the
refrigerant inside the compressor to settle before restarting.

The ice maker automatically stops working when the ice basket is full. The
“ICE” indicator light will also turn on at this time.
Change the water in the reservoir every 24 hours to ensure hygienic ice. If
the ice maker will not be used for an extended period of time, drain the
water from the reservoir by unplugging the drain off cap located on the
side of the ice maker.

warm water and a soft cloth.
Clean the outside of the ice maker with a mild detergent solution and
warm water.

Replace the ice basket and plug the unit in again.
To remove the build-up of calcium or other impurities, add a capful of vinegar
or lemon juice to the water in the reservoir and run for two or three ice-making
cycles. Drain and refill the reservoir with clean, warm water. Run two more
cycles to rinse the vinegar or lemon-juice.
When the machine is not in use, open the water drain cap to completely drain
the water reservoir.
STORAGE
Before storing your ice maker, clean it according to the directions above and
allow it to dry thoroughly (at least 24 hours) in order to prevent the growth of

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
The “ADD WATER”
indicator light is on.
Possible Cause
There is not enough
water in the tank.
The “ICE” indicator light
is on.
The “ADD WATER” and
“ICE” lights are both
flashing.
The ice basket is full.
The ice making cycle
appears to be normal
but no ice is being
produced.
The refrigerant may
be leaking.
The ice cubes are too
small.
The ice has a “plastic”
taste.
The ice shovel may be
incorrectly positioned.
Ice may be blocking
the sensor.
A pipe in the cooling
system may be
blocked.
The ambient
temperature or water
temperature may be
too high.
The compressor may
need to warm up.
The unit’s interior may
need to be cleaned.
Solution
Press the “POWER”
button to turn off the
unit. Fill the reservoir
with water. Press
“POWER” to restart.
Remove ice from the
basket.
Make sure the ice
shovel is properly
positioned.
Remove any ice that
may be blocking the
sensor.
Consult a qualified
technician.
Consult a qualified
technician.
Select large sized ice
cubes by pressing the
“SELECT” button.
If this is the first time
the unit is being used,
allow the ice maker to
cycle a few times. This
should result in larger
cubes.
Add a tablespoon of
lemon juice or vinegar
to a full tank of water
and allow the ice maker
to cycle a few times.
12
Problem
The unit produces a
large block of ice
instead of cubes.
Possible Cause
The ambient
temperature may be
too low.
The ice cubes have a
cloudy appearance.
There may be trace
minerals in your water
or ice is being
produced too quickly.
Solution
Unplug the unit and let
the ice thaw out. Allow
the ice maker to defrost
for a few hours and
restart the unit.
Ice cubes may develop
cloudiness when water
is frozen quickly. As ice
develops on the surface
of water, certain gases
can no longer remain
dissolved and begin to
surface as microscopic
bubbles. This cloudiness
is normal.
