WARNING: Modifying or defeating of the grounding plug can result in a
risk of electric shock.
• This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical
short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock.
• This appliance is equipped with a power cord that has a grounding
wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a 3 prong
outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
• Consult a qualified electrician if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
• Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground
prong from the power cord.
• Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is
too short, have a qualified electrician install an outlet near the desired
location of the unit.
• For best operation, plug the appliance securely into its own electrical
outlet on a dedicated circuit not shared with any other appliances to
prevent blowing a fuse or tripping the circuit breaker.

2. Using the illustration on Page 2 that shows a close-up of the bottom of
the unit, locate the Drain and Drain Cap (part # 10 and 11 on the Parts
and Features list) underneath the unit on the rear right-hand side.
3. Place the unit onto a ledge or a counter-top and allow the rear of the
unit to overhang above the sink, bucket, or outdoor area that you

8. The first ice making cycle will last approximately 8 - 13 minutes
depending on the ice size that is selected. The ice making cycle starts
with water being pumped into the Ice Tray (see #9 on Parts and
Features list) situated below the Metal Fingers (see # 5 on Parts
and Features list). Over the next 8 - 13 minutes ice forms on the Metal
Fingers. Once this has completed, the Ice Tray will tilt backwards and
the remaining water in the Ice Tray is drained back into the Water
Reservoir. The ice cubes are then dropped from the Metal Fingers and
pushed forward into the Ice Storage Basket. The Ice Tray will
automatically move back into position under the Metal Fingers and
start the next cycle.
9. The “Ice Storage Basket Full” LED light will light up when the Ice
Storage Basket is full and the Portable Ice Maker will stop the ice
making cycle automatically. Gently remove the ice from the Ice Storage
Basket with the Ice Scoop (see #8 on the Parts and Features list). Once
the Ice Storage Basket has been emptied and the Cover closed, the unit
will restart its ice making function automatically.
10.The ‘Add Water’ Indicator Light (see A on the Parts and Features list)
will light up when there is no more water in the Water Reservoir and
the ice making cycle will stop automatically. Remove the Ice Storage
Basket and add water to the Water Reservoir.
NOTE: Do not fill above the MAX water level mark at the back of the
Water Reservoir. Replace the Ice Storage Basket and close the Cover.
• Never turn the unit upside down or tilt more than 45 degrees. If the unit has
been resting on its side for a long period of time, you must position it in the
upright position for approximately 12 hours before turning it on.
