will have an impact on the time between cleanings and ultimately on the life of the product. Water can contain impurities either in suspension or in solution.

Suspended solids can be filtered out. In solution or dissolved solids cannot be filtered, they must be diluted or treated. Water filters are recommended to remove suspended solids. Some filters have treatment in them for dissolved solids.

Check with a water treatment service for a recommendation.

Installing an ice machine near a source of yeast or similar material can result in the need for more frequent sanitation cleanings due to the tendency of these materials to contaminate the machine.

Most water filters remove chlorine from the water supply to the machine which contributes to this situation. Testing has shown that using a filter that does not remove chlorine, such as the Scotsman

Aqua Patrol, will greatly improve this situation.

Warranty Information

The warranty statement for this product is provided separately from this manual. Refer to it for applicable coverage. In general warranty covers defects in material or workmanship. It does not cover maintenance, corrections to installations, or situations when the machine is operated in circumstances that exceed the limitations printed above.

Air, Water or Remote Service Manual

Location:

While the machine will operate satisfactorily within the listed air and water temperature limits, it will produce more ice when those temperatures are nearer the lower limits. Avoid locations that are hot, dusty, greasy or confined. Air cooled models need plenty of room air to breathe. Air cooled models must have at least six inches of space at the back for air discharge; however, more space will allow better performance.

Bin compatibility

All models have the same footprint: 22 inches wide by 24 inches deep. Confirm available space when replacing a prior model.

Bin & adapter list:

• B322S – no adapter needed

Airflow

Air flows into the front of the cabinet and out the back.

The air filters are on the outside of the front panel and are easily removed for cleaning.

• B330P or B530P or B530S – Use KBT27

• B842S – KBT39

• B948S – KBT38 for single unit

• B948S – KBT38-2X for two units side by side

• BH1100, BH1300 and BH1600 upright bins include filler panels to accommodate a single 22 inch wide ice machine. No adapter is needed.

Dispenser compatibility

Only nugget ice models may be used with ice dispensers. Flaked ice is not dispensable.

• ID150 – use KBT42 and KDIL-PN-150, includes

KVS, KNUGDIV and R629088514

• ID200 – use KBT43 and KNUGDIV and KVS

Options

Side air flow kits KPFSA223 or KPFSA227 are available for air cooled models. A filter kit for the remote condenser is KERCF

Ice is made until it fills the bin enough to block an infrared light beam inside the base of the machine. A field installed kit is available to adjust the maintained ice level lower. The kit number is KVS.

The standard controller has excellent diagnostic capabilities and communicates to the user through the

AutoAlert light panel, seen through the front panel.

Field installed kits are available that can log data and provide additional information when the front panel is removed. The kit numbers are KSBU and KSB-NU.

See page 21.

• ID250 – use KBT43 and KNUGDIV and KVS

See sales literature for other brand model ice and beverage dispenser applications.

Refrigeration - Remote Condenser Models

Remote condenser models have additional installation needs.

The correct remote condenser fan and coil must be connected to the ice making head. Liquid and discharge tubing connections are on the back of the ice machine cabinet. Pre-charged tubing kits are available in several lengths to accommodate most installations. Order the one that just exceeds the length needed for the installation.

The kit numbers are:

• RTE10

• RTE25

• RTE40

• RTE75

There are limits as to how far away from the ice machine and where the remote condenser can be located. See the next page for those limits.

The correct condenser must be used.

Remote Condenser Location - Limits

Use the following for planning the placement of the condenser relative to the ice machine

Configurations that do NOT meet these requirements must receive prior written authorization from

Scotsman to maintain warranty.

Location Limits - condenser location must not exceed

ANY of the following limits: Do NOT:

• Route a line set that rises, then falls, then rises.

• Maximum rise from the ice machine to the condenser is 35 physical feet

• Maximum drop from the ice machine to the condenser is 15 physical feet

• Physical line set maximum length is 100 feet.

• Calculated line set length maximum is 150.

Calculation Formula:

• Drop = dd x 6.6 (dd = distance in feet)

• Route a line set that falls, then rises, then falls.

Calculation Example 1:

The condenser is to be located 5 feet below the ice machine and then 20 feet away horizontally.

5 feet x 6.6 = 33. 33 + 20 = 53. This location would be acceptable

Calculation Example 2:

• Rise = rd x 1.7 (rd = distance in feet)

• Horizontal Run = hd x 1 (hd = distance in feet)

• Calculation: Drop(s) + Rise(s) + Horizontal

• Run = dd+rd+hd = Calculated Line Length

The condenser is to be located 35 feet above and then 100 feet away horizontally. 35 x 1.7 = 59.5.

59.5 +100 = 159.5. 159.5 is greater than the 150 maximum and is NOT acceptable.

Operating a machine with an unacceptable configuration is misuse and will void the warranty.

For The Installer: Remote Condenser

Locate the condenser as near as possible to the interior location of the ice machine. Allow it plenty of space for air and cleaning: keep it a minimum of two feet away from a wall or other rooftop unit.

Note: The location of the condenser relative to the ice machine is LIMITED by the specification on the prior page.

Roof penetration. In many cases a roofing contractor will need to make and seal the hole in the roof for the line sets. The suggested hole diameter is 2 inches.

Meet all applicable building codes.

Roof Attachment

Install and attach the remote condenser to the roof of the building, using the methods and practices of construction that conform to the local building codes, including having a roofing contractor secure the condenser to the roof

Precharged Line Routing - Remote Only

Do not connect the precharged tubing until all routing and forming of the tubing is complete. See the

Coupling Instructions for final connections.

3. Route the refrigerant tubes thru the roof opening.

Follow straight line routing whenever possible.

1. Each set of pre-charged tubing lines contains a 3/8” diameter liquid line, and a 1/2” diameter discharge line. Both ends of each line have quick connect couplings.

4. Excess tubing may EITHER be coiled up INSIDE the building OR cut out prior to connection to the ice maker and condenser.

If the excess tubing is cut out, after re-brazing the tubing must be evacuated prior to connection to the ice maker or condenser.

Note: The openings in the building ceiling or wall, listed in the next step, are the minimum sizes recommended for passing the refrigerant lines through.

If the excess tubing is to be coiled, spiral it horizontally to avoid excess trapping in the lines.

2. Have the roofing contractor cut a minimum hole for the refrigerant lines of 2”. Check local codes, a separate hole may be required for the electrical power supply to the condenser.

5. Have the roofing contractor seal the holes in the roof per local codes

Caution: Do NOT kink the refrigerant tubing while routing it.

Coupling Instructions - Remote Only

The couplings on the ends of the pre-charged line sets are self-sealing when installed properly.

Follow these instructions carefully.

6. Continue tightening the swivel nut until it bottoms out or a very definite increase in resistance is felt

(no threads should be showing).

These steps must be performed by an EPA Certified

Type II or higher technician.

Initial Connections

1. Remove the protector caps and plugs. Wipe the seats and threaded surfaces with a clean cloth to remove any possible foreign matter.

2. Lubricate the inside of the couplings, especially the O-rings, with refrigerant oil. Oil packets are supplied with Scotsman line sets.

3. Position the fittings on the correct connections on the condenser and ice machine.

Final Connections:

4. Tighten the couplings together by hand until it is certain that the threads are properly engaged.

Critical Step!!!!!

7. Mark a line on the coupling nut and unit panel.

Then tighten the coupling nut an additional onequarter turn. The line will show the amount that the nut turns. Do NOT over tighten.

5. Use two wrenches tighten the coupling until it bottoms out or a definite increase in resistance is felt. It is important that ONLY the nut on the precharged tube be turned, or the diaphragms will be torn out by the piercing knives and they will be loose in the refrigeration system.

8. After all connections have been made, and after the receiver outlet valve has been opened (do not open yet), check the couplings for leaks.

Note: As the couplings are tightened, the diaphragms in the quick connect couplings will begin to be pierced. As that happens, there will be some resistance to tightening the swivel nut.

Water - Remote Models

The water supply for ice making must be cold, potable water. There is a single 3 8” male flare potable water connection on the back panel.

Backflow

Do not Tee ice machine drains into the drain tube from the ice storage bin or dispenser. Back ups could contaminate and / or melt the ice in the bin or dispenser. Be sure to vent the bin drain.

The design of the float valve and reservoir prevents potable water backflow by means of a 1" air gap between the reservoir's maximum water level and the float valve water inlet orifice.

Follow all local and national codes for tubing, traps and air gaps.

Drain

There is one ¾” FPT condensate drain fitting at the back of the cabinet.

Sequence of Operation

The ice machine’s function is to continuously produce ice until the ice level control senses that there is enough ice in the bin or dispenser. There are three systems that operate in close coordination to make ice. They are the electrical system, the water system and the refrigeration system.

The electrical system includes the compressor, auger drive assembly, fan motor and control system (the auger drive assembly includes the gear reducer, auger and top bearing).

Additionally, the control system uses the photo-eyes to confirm ice making. As the machine makes ice, the falling ice causes breaks in the infrared beam.

In operation, the first 6 minutes of ice making are ignored to give the machine time to start producing ice. After that, the controller will look for a minimum of one beam-break in 10 minutes. If this is not achieved, the control will shut the machine down for 10 minutes and add the incident to a strike counter. During the wait period, a 1 will be flashing in the code display.

The water system includes the float valve, reservoir, inside of the evaporator and the drain tubing.

The refrigeration system includes the compressor, condenser, expansion valve and outside of the evaporator.

After the 10 minute wait, the machine will restart. If no ice is sensed three times in a row, the machine will shut down on a no ice error and must be manually reset. The 1 in the code display will change from flashing to continuous.

Control System

If ice is detected within 10 minutes after any restart, the strike counter will be reset to zero, and the code display will show F, for freeze mode.

As noted, the electrical system includes a control system. The control system consists of a controller and sensors. It automatically operates the machine to make ice only when needed. It also monitors the refrigeration system, water system and auger drive assembly for proper function.

Sensors are used to monitor the machine. A continuity probe water sensor is located near the float reservoir.

A tube from the float tank allows water to touch the sensor’s two stainless steel probes, making a connection between them. That signals to the controller the presence of water. The controller will not allow the machine to make ice unless this sensor's probes have continuity.

The auger drive motor amperage is monitored by the controller. If the auger motor is overloaded and is drawing too many amps, the controller will shut the machine off, and a 2 will be flashing in the code display. The controller will attempt a restart of the auger motor in 4 minutes. If during the first 60 seconds after restart the auger motor current stays within limits, the compressor is restarted and the machine returns to normal operation. If the auger motor’s current is excessive within 60 seconds after the restart, the process will be repeated once more.

If during that try the current is still excessive the machine shuts down and must be manually reset.

The 2 in the code display will change from flashing to continuous.

A set of photo-electric eyes (infrared emitter and receiver) is located at the base of the ice discharge chute. They are used to sense ice. As ice is made, it falls through the infrared beam from the emitter, causing the receiver to detect it. When ice has filled the bin, the top of the ice pile will continuously stop the beam, breaking the light to the receiver, and that signals to the controller that the bin is full

Water System

The water level in the evaporator is maintained by a float valve in a separate reservoir. As ice is made, and water is used, the water level in the reservoir drops, opening the float valve. The open valve adds water to the reservoir to resupply it.

Air, Water or Remote Service Manual

Refrigeration System

The refrigeration system is monitored by the high pressure cut out switch. If the refrigeration discharge pressure exceeds the pre-set point of the switch, it will open, causing the controller to shut the machine off.

The discharge pressure control is an automatic reset switch, and after the discharge pressure drops, the controller will restart the unit. A 4 in the code display indicates high discharge pressure.

The refrigeration system is also monitored by the low pressure cut out switch. If the refrigeration low side pressure drops below a pre-set point, the switch will open. When that occurs, the controller will shut the machine off. The low pressure cut out switch is an automatic reset switch and after the low side pressure increases to the cut in point, the controller will restart the machine. A 4 will show in the code display to indicate low suction pressure.

Electrical Sequence

Pushing and releasing the On button starts the machine. The sequence of operation begins with water. Water must be sensed or the controller will not start the ice making process. If there is no water, a 3 will show it the code display. If there is water, and there is nothing blocking the infrared beam of the ice sensors, the controller will start the machine.

A flashing F will show in the code display while the auger drive motor starts up. When it has started, the compressor will start and the flashing F will change to a continuous F. This continues until the ice level control senses a full bin, at that time the compressor is shut off, and the auger motor continues to operate for a short time to clear the evaporator of any left over ice. A b will show in the code display.

Note: the low pressure control for a Remote is a pump down switch, and when it opens the compressor stops and no change is noted by the controlle

Water System

Water enters the machine through the 3/8" male flare at the rear of the cabinet, goes to the water reservoir which it enters through the float valve.

The float valve maintains a constant level of water in the reservoir and evaporator, as water flows out the bottom of the reservoir tank to fill the evaporator.

Reservoir overflow or evaporator condensation is routed to the drain. Water cooled models have a separate water circuit for the cooling water: it nters the fitting at the rear, goes to the water regulating valve, then to the water cooled condenser and down the drain.

Water Level: The correct water level should be checked when the machine is making ice. Check the water level in the reservoir and compare it to the horizontal line molded into the side of the reservoir.

The correct level should be between 1/8” above and

1/4” below the line. If needed, bend the float arm up or down to adjust the water level.

Note: Water sensor moved to reservoir in 2012, water inlet hose and reservoir revised in 2013 and 2014.

Air Cooled Refrigeration

The compressor concentrates the heat from ice making into high pressure, hot discharge gas. The high pressure forces the gas to the water cooled condenser.

At the condenser, refrigerant gas flows through a serpentine tube that is connected to fins. Room air is forced by a fan motor through the fins. As the relatively cooler air comes in contact with the fins and tubing, heat flows from the hot refrigerant gas into the fins and tubing and into the cooler air passing over them. When the refrigerant cools, it condenses into a liquid.

The low pressure zone where the refrigerant evaporates is the evaporator. The evaporator is a vertical metal tube surrounded by a coil of tubing, which the refrigerant flows through. As refrigerant evaporates in the coil, it absorbs heat from the metal parts of the evaporator and the water inside it. As the auger inside the evaporator turns, ice is continuously forced out of the evaporator and make up water flows in.

From the evaporator, the refrigerant, carrying the heat from ice making, flows back to the compressor through the suction line, and the cycle continues

From the condenser the high pressure liquid refrigerant flows through the liquid line to the metering device - a thermostatic expansion valve.

At the expansion valve, liquid refrigerant passes from a high pressure zone to one of relatively low pressure, and in the low pressure zone it evaporates.

How Ice Is Made

Refrigeration effect is applied to the water between the auger and the evaporator. When that water's temperature drops to its freezing point, ice crystals form throughout it. A continually rotating auger moves the ice up the evaporator tube. At this point the ice is a soft ribbon that fills the space between the auger and evaporator.

Flaked ice machines have 6 oblong and curved slots that ice flows from, and they produce a softer, wetter ice form.

Nugget ice machines have 16 round holes that form the nugget, which is more heavily compressed and contains less water than freshly made flaked ice.

At the top of the evaporator tube, ice emerges from the water and is forced or extruded through relatively small openings. This has the effect of squeezing out excess water and compressing the ice together into a useable form.

Ice flowing from the openings is forced to one side, breaking it into smaller lengths. An ice sweep moves them to the chute.

Maintenance

This ice machine needs five types of maintenance:

• Air cooled and remote models need their air filters or condenser coils cleaned regularly.

• All models need scale removed from the water system.

• All models require regular sanitization.

• All models require sensor cleaning.

• All models require a top bearing check.

Maintenance Frequency:

Air filters: At least twice a year, but in dusty or greasy air, monthly.

Scale removal. At least twice a year, in some water conditions it might be every 3 months.

Sanitizing: Every time the scale is removed or as often as needed to maintain a sanitary unit.

Sensor Cleaning: Every time the scale is removed.

Top bearing check: At least twice a year or every time the scale is removed.

Maintenance: Air filters

1. Pull air filter(s) from panel.

2. Wash the dust and grease off the filter(s).

3. Return it(them) to their original position(s).

Do not operate the machine without the filter in place except during cleaning.

Maintenance: Air cooled condenser

If the machine has been operated without a filter the air cooled condenser fins will need to be cleaned.

They are located under the fan blades. The services of a refrigeration technician will be required to clean the condenser.

Maintenance: Remote air cooled condenser

The condenser fins will occasionally need to be cleaned of leaves, grease or other dirt. Check the coil every time the ice machine is cleaned.

Maintenance: Exterior Panels

The front and side panels are durable stainless steel.

Fingerprints, dust and grease will require cleaning with a good quality stainless steel cleaner.

Note: If using a sanitizer or a cleaner that contains chlorine on the panels, after use be sure to wash the panels with clean water to remove chlorine residue.

Maintenance: Water filters

If the machine has been connected to water filters, check the cartridges for the date they were replaced or for the pressure on the gauge. Change cartridges if they’ve been installed more than 6 months or if the pressure drops too much during ice making.

Maintenance: Sensors

The control that senses bin full and empty is a photoelectric eye, therefore it must be kept clean so it can “see”. At least twice a year, remove the ice level sensors from the base of the ice chute, and wipe the inside clean, as illustrated.

3. Remove the hose from the water sensor, use a hose clamp pliers for this.

Probes

1. Remove front panel.

2. Pull photo eye holders forward to release them.

3. Wipe clean as needed. Do not scratch the photoeye portion.

4. Return the eye holders to their normal positions and return the front panel to its original position.

Note: Eye holders must be mounted properly. They snap into a centered position and are properly located when the wires are routed to the back and the left eye is the one with 2 wires at the connector.

The ice machine senses water by a probe located near the water reservoir. At least twice a year, the probe should be wiped clean of mineral build-up.

1. Shut off the water supply.

2. Remove front panel.

4. Loosen mounting screw and release the water sensor from the frame of the unit.

5. Wipe probes clean,

Check Gear Reducer Lubricant

Although there is no normal access to the gear reducer lubricant, it can be checked without removal and complete disassembly. The auger drive motor must be removed and the lubricant checked through the input shaft area.

Because of a shelf under the motor hole, only about

3/16 of oil should be on the tip of the screwdriver blade. Any more and there may be water in the gear case, any less and it may be low. The correct oil charge is 14 ounces.

Options

Vari-Smart

Use of adjustable ice level control

Optional adjustable ice level control (KVS). When this option is present there is an adjustment post and an additional indicator light to the right of the four indicator lights mentioned earlier.

There are several positions the ice level can be set to, including Off or Max (knob and label indicators lined up), where it fills the bin until the standard bin control shuts the machine off. See the kit’s instructions for complete details.

The ultrasonic ice level control allows the user to control the point that the ice machine will stop making ice before the bin or dispenser is full.

Reasons for this include:

• Seasonal changes in ice used

• Planning to sanitize the bin

• Faster turnover for fresher ice

• Certain dispenser applications where maximum ice level is not desired

Rotate the adjustment post to the desired ice level.

The machine will fill up to that level and when it shuts off the indicator light next to the adjustment post will be On.

Note: The maximum fill position is when the arrow on the knob points to the arrow on the label.

Dispenser applications - Nugget ice only:

Set the adjustment knob arrow to the Norm area between the green arrows. Select either the first or second positions as a starting point and adjust as needed.

Auger and Evaporator Inspection

The auger must be carefully inspected for wear and scale. The wear areas are the top bearing surface, drive junction and the edges of the flights. The edges of the auger have horizontal serrations and there are highly machined areas in between. If the auger has contacted the evaporator wall, it will have very rough flight edges and should be replaced.

Scale forms on the auger during normal ice making.

If scale is still on the auger after cleaning in the ice machine, the scale can be removed using ice machine cleaner and a nylon scrub pad.

Inspect the auger, the critical areas of the auger are:

1. The auger body. It should be clean and shining.

Sometimes an auger will appear clean when wet, but after it is dry it will be seen to be stained. Scrub the auger with ice machine cleaner and hot water.

Caution: Ice machine cleaner is an acid. Handle it with extreme care, keep out of the reach of children.

2. The water seal area. Because the auger has been removed, the water seal will have to be replaced.

Remove the water seal top half from the auger, and remove any sealant or debris from the shoulder of the auger where the water seal was.

Inspect the evaporator's interior. The interior is stainless steel that should be bright and shiny when dry. If it isn't the scale on the surface must be removed. To remove scale:

1. Remove the water seal; it will have to be replaced.

2. Use a brass wire brush and scrub the interior of the evaporator vertically to remove any scale.

3. Clean up any debris from the top of the gear reducer.

Repair Procedures: The Water Seal

(Assuming all steps to remove the auger have been performed.)

To Replace the Water Seal:

1. The gear reducer/evaporator assembly will have to be exposed.

1. Lubricate the water seal with a thin coating of food grade grease or oil, and push the water seal into the bottom of the evaporator slightly past the groove for the snap ring.

2. Remove the 4 hex head cap screws holding the evaporator to the gear reducer assembly. Lift the evaporator up and off of the gear reducer.

2. Replace the snap ring and pull the water seal down against it.

3. The part of the water seal that rotates with the auger must also be replaced. Remove the old part from the auger and clean the mounting area.

4. Place a small bead of food grade silastic sealant

Sealant

3. Remove the snap ring or wire retainer from the groove under the water seal.

Snap Ring

Water Seal

4. Pull or drive out the lower half of the water seal.

Tip: Push one side of seal in so the seal is turned 90 degrees to the evaporator and pull it out.

(such as 732 RTV or Scotsman part number 19-0529-

01) on the area of the auger where the water seal is to be mounted.

5. Carefully push the water seal (rubber side against the auger shoulder and the silastic sealant).

Do not get any sealant onto the face of the seal.

6. Allow the auger and seal to air dry until the sealant is dry on the surface.

7. If the original water seal was leaking, it would be a good idea to inspect the interior of the gear reducer.
