FOR THE INSTALLER

Location:

After uncrating and inspection, the unit is ready for installation. It is important that the machine be installed in a location where it has enough space around it to be accessible for service, and a minimum of 6" be allowed at the back for air circulation on air cooled models. Try to avoid hot, dirty and crowded locations. Be sure that the location for the machine is within the environmental limitations.

Storage Bin:

Tip the storage bin on its back, using parts of the carton to protect the exterior finish. Install the legs into the threaded holes in the bottom of the bin.

Turn the leg levelers all the way in preparation for leveling later. Return the bin to the upright position, remove paper covering the bin gasket.

Note: Do not push bin into position, but lift it there.

Pushing a bin, especially one with ice in it, can cause damage to the legs and the leg mounts.

Install the appropriate bin top on the bin, according to the instructions for the bin top.

Ice Maker:

The machine is heavy, so the use of a mechanical lift is recommended for lifting the machine high enough to install on top of the bin. After the unit is placed on the bin, line it up so it is even with the back side. Secure the machine to the bin with the hardware provided with the machine.

Remove the front panel and remove any shipping blocks.

Note: When placing 2 of these machines on a

BH800 without the bin top, removal of the 2 service panels facing each other will make future service easier:

1. Remove the 2 top panel screws that will face each other.

2. Remove the 2 service panels that will face each other.

3. Add a strip of gasket, such as Scotsman part number 19-0503-04, to the 2 base edges that will face each other and around service panel space on the 2 panels that will face each other.

When the 2 machines are placed on the bin, the gaskets will seal the bin top area and the space between the machines.

Water Limitations:

An ice machine is a food manufacturing plant: it takes a raw material, water, and transforms it into a food product, ice. The purity of the water is very important in obtaining pure ice and in maximizing product life. This section is not intended as a complete resource for water related questions, but it does offer these general recommendations:

1. Check with a water treatment specialist for a water test, and recommendations regarding filters and treatment.

2. In most cases, the water used to make ice should be filtered or treated, depending upon the water. There is no one type of water filter that is effective in all situations. That is why a water test is important.

Note:

Scotsman Ice Systems are designed and manufactured with the highest regard for safety and performance. They meet or exceed the standards of UL, NSF, and CUL.

Scotsman assumes no liability or responsibility of any kind for products manufactured by Scotsman that have been altered in any way, including the use of any part and/or other components not specifically approved by Scotsman.

Scotsman reserves the right to make design changes and/or improvements at any time.

Specifications and design are subject to change without notice.

FOR THE PLUMBER

CONFORM TO ALL APPLICABLE CODES

Water Inlet

Air Cooled Models: The recommended water supply is clean, cold water. Use 3/8" O.D. copper tubing, connect to the 3/8" male flare at the back of the cabinet. Install a hand valve near the machine to control the water supply.

Water Treatment: In most areas, a water filter of some type will be useful. In areas where the water is highly concentrated with minerals the water should be tested by a water treatment specialist, and the recommendations of the specialist regarding filtration and/or treatment should be followed.

Water Cooled Models: A separate 3/8" O.D.

copper line is recommended, with a separate hand valve to control it. It is connected to a 3/8" FPT condenser inlet at the back of the cabinet. The water pressure to all lines must always be above

20 psig, and below 80 psig.

Drains

Air Cooled Models: There is one 3/4" FPT drain at the back of the cabinet, the drain line is of the gravity type, and 1/4 inch per foot fall is an acceptable pitch for the drain tubing. There should be a vent at the highest point of the drain line, and the ideal drain receptacle would be a trapped and vented floor drain. Use only 3/4" rigid tubing.

Water Cooled Models: In addition to the above mentioned drain, a separate condenser drain must be installed. Connect it to the 1/2" condenser drain connection at the back of the cabinet.

Storage Bin: A separate gravity type drain needs to be run, similar to the air cooled drain. Insulation of this drain line is recommended.

FOR THE ELECTRICIAN

CONFORM TO ALL APPLICABLE CODES

The electrical power to the unit is supplied through the junction box at the rear of the machine.

Check the nameplate (located on the back panel) for the voltage requirements, and for the minimum circuit ampacity. The machine requires a solid chassis to earth ground wire.

The ice maker should be connected to its own electrical circuit so it would be individually fused.

Voltage variation must remain within design limitations, even under starting conditions.

All external wiring must conform to national, state, and local electrical codes. The use of a licensed electrician is required to perform the electrical installation.

START UP

Pre-Start Inspection

1. Remove the front and side service panels.

2. Check that the styrofoam shipping blocks have been removed.

3. Inspect the interior of the machine for loose screws or wires. Check that no refrigerant lines are rubbing each other. Check that the fan blade turns freely (air cooled).

4. Check that the unit is installed correctly according to the final check list (page 8).

1. Go through the prestart inspection.

2. Open the hand valve, observe that water enters the water reservoir, fills the tube from the reservoir to the evaporator, and then shuts off. Check for leaks.

3. Switch the master switch on.

The electrical start up sequence is now on automatic.

A. There should be a short (15 second) delay before the gearmotor starts.

B. After the gearmotor starts, the compressor will start.

Start Up

The air cooled discharge pressure will depend upon air and water temperatures, but should be between 220 psig and 300 psig.

The water cooled discharge pressure should be constant at about 245 psig.

The above numbers are for new, clean machines, you can expect to see some values higher, and some lower between different units.

6. THERE ARE NO ADJUSTMENTS TO MAKE, so replace the panels.

7. Clean and/or sanitize the storage bin interior, wipe off the exterior with a clean, damp cloth.

4. On air cooled models, the condenser will begin to discharge warm air, on water cooled models, the water regulating valve will open, and warm water will be discharged into the drain.

8. Give the owner/user the service manual, instruct him/her in the operation of the unit, and make sure they know who to call for service.

9. Fill out the manufacturers registration card, and mail it to the Scotsman Factory.

5. The unit should soon be making ice, if desired, the low side pressure can be checked: it should be

34 psig + or - 4 psig.

The suction line temperature at the compressor is normally very cold, nearly to the point of frost up to the compressor body, but not on it.

10. Fill out the field quality audit form, and mail it to the Scotsman factory.

ELECTRICAL SEQUENCE:

Refer the wiring diagram as needed.

If the machine is switched off at the master switch, but is otherwise ready to go, switching the master switch to on does the following:

The bin empty light on the circuit board goes on

There is a 15 second delay

If there is enough water in the reservoir, the circuit board will allow the machine to start up.

Start up consists of:

The compressor relay and auger motor relay become energized, connecting power to the windings of the auger motor.

The auger motor starts, and the centrifugal switch closes, connecting power to the compressor contactor coil.

The contactor is energized, connecting power to the compressor, and the compressor starts.

As ice goes past the ice level sensors, the bin empty light will stay on, and the machine will continue to run, unless the ice stays between the sensors for more than 15 seconds (bin full).

At that point, the bin empty light goes out, and the machine shuts down.

Shut Down consists of:

The compressor relay opens.

The compressor contactor opens

The compressor stops

The auger motor is run by the circuit board for 2 more minutes, clearing out ice in the evaporator, and then

The auger motor relay opens, and the auger motor stops.

If the ice level sensor is clear (bin empty) for more than 15 seconds, the machine will start up again.

Another purpose of the circuit board is to turn the machine off if there is not enough water in the machine.

When the water level in the reservoir falls below the water level sensor, the machine will

“shut down”

When the water refills the reservoir, the machine will start up again.

Separate from the circuit board:

If the high pressure control (cut out switch) opens, the machine will stop immediately

(through the relays on the circuit board). It must be manually reset at the control.

If the low pressure control (cut out switch) opens, the machine will stop immediately

(through the relays on the circuit board). It must be manually reset at the control.

The master switch is the manual control for the complete machine, but it is not a service disconnect.

February 1997

Page 13

NME650 & FME800

OPERATION: Water

Water enters the machine through the 3/8" male flare at the rear of the cabinet, goes to a strainer and then to the water reservoir which it enters through the float valve. The water then goes out the bottom of the reservoir tank to the bottom of the evaporator.

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.

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

OPERATION: Refrigeration

Beginning at the compressor, the refrigerant is compressed into a high temperature gas. The discharge line directs this gas to the condenser. At the condenser (air or water cooled) the gas is cooled by either air or water and it then condenses into a liquid. This high pressure liquid then goes through the liquid line to the expansion valve.

The thermostatic expansion valve meters liquid refrigerant into the evaporator, the volume of liquid refrigerant depending upon the temperature of the evaporator.

At the evaporator, the refrigerant enters an area of relatively low pressure, where it can easily "boil off" or evaporate. As it evaporates, it absorbs heat from the evaporator and whatever is in contact with it (such as the water inside it). After the evaporator, the refrigerant, now a low pressure vapor, goes through the suction line back to compressor, where the cycle is repeated.

CLEANING & SANITIZING

A Scotsman Ice System represents a sizable investment of time and money in any company’s business. In order to receive the best return for that investment, it MUST receive periodic maintenance.

It is the USER’S RESPONSIBILITY to see that the unit is properly maintained. It is always preferable, and less costly in the long run, to avoid possible down time by keeping it clean; adjusting it as needed; and by replacing worn parts before they can cause failure. The following is a list of recommended maintenance that will help keep the machine running with a minimum of problems.

Maintenance and Cleaning should be scheduled at a minimum of twice per year.

Note: Electrical power will be ON when doing

in place cleaning.

ICE MAKING SYSTEM: In place cleaning

1. Check and clean any water treatment devices, if any are installed.

2. Remove screws and the front and top panels.

3. Move the ON-OFF switch to OFF.

4. Remove all the ice from the storage bin.

5. Remove the cover to the water reservoir and block the float up.

6. Drain the water reservoir and freezer assembly using the drain tube attached to the freezer water inlet. Return the drain tube to its normal upright position and replace the end cap.

7. Prepare the cleaning solution: Mix eight ounces of Scotsman Ice Machine Cleaner with three quarts of hot water. The water should be between 90-115 degrees F.

Scotsman Ice Machine

Cleaner contains acids.

These compounds may

cause burns.

If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Give large amounts of water or milk. Call Physician immediately. In case of external contact, flush with water.

KEEP OUT OF THE

REACH OF CHILDREN.

8. Slowly pour the cleaning solution into the water reservoir until it is full. Wait 15 minutes, then switch the master switch to ON.

9. As the ice maker begins to use water from the reservoir, continue to add more cleaning solution to maintain a full reservoir.

10. After all of the cleaning solution has been added to the reservoir, and the reservoir is nearly empty, switch the master switch to OFF.

11. Drain the water reservoir and freezer assembly using the drain tube attached to the freezer water inlet. Return the drain tube to its normal upright position and replace the end cap. Wash and rinse the water reservoir.

Sanitizing:

To sanitize, use an approved sanitizing solution or mix one ounce of household bleach to 2 gallons of warm (95 o

F.-115 o

F.) water. Repeat steps 8-11 using the sanitizer solution in place of the cleaning solution.

12. Remove the block from the float in the water reservoir.

13. Switch the master switch to ON

14. Continue ice making for at least 15 minutes, to flush out any cleaning solution.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

DO NOT USE any ice produced from the cleaning solution.

Be sure no ice remains in the bin.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

15. Remove all ice from the storage bin.

16. Add warm water to the ice storage bin and thoroughly wash and rinse all surfaces within the bin.

17. Sanitize the bin interior with an approved sanitizer using the directions for that sanitizer.

18. Replace the panels.

February 1997

NME650 & FME800

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING

1. The bin control uses devices that sense light, therefore they must be kept clean enough so that they can “see”. At least twice a year, remove the bin control sensors from the base of the ice chute, and wipe the inside clean, as illustrated.

2. The ice machine senses water level by a probe located in the water reservoir. At least twice a year, the probe should be removed from the reservoir, and the tip wiped clean of mineral build-up.

4. Check and tighten all bolts and screws.

Moving Parts Hazard.

A. Check the bearing by:

• switching the machine OFF

• removing the ice chute cover

• unscrewing the ice sweep

• removing the water shed

• unscrewing the breaker cover.

• unscrewing the auger stud

Inspect the assembly, looking for wear.

5. Clean the air cooled condenser.

The air flow on this model is from front to back, so the inside of the machine will have to be available to clean the air cooled condenser. Use a vacuum cleaner or coil cleaner if needed. Do NOT use a wire brush.

A. Disconnect electrical power, and remove the filter. The filter may be cleaned or replaced.

B. Clean the condenser: the condenser may appear to be clean on the surface, but it can still be clogged internally. Check with a flash light from the front to see if light can be seen though the condenser fins. Reverse to reassemble.

Step 2: Remove the top portion of the fan shroud.

Step 1: Remove the top panel.

Step 3: Clean the condenser.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING: Auger

Hazardous Moving

Parts.

Moving auger can cause personal injury.

Disconnect electrical power before beginning.

After the auger has been removed, allow the auger to dry: if the auger is not bright and shiny, it must be cleaned.

Clean the auger and evaporator as required. DO

NOT HONE THE EVAPORATOR.

7. Replace the water seal.

8. Reverse to reassemble.

In some areas, the water supply to the ice maker will contain a high concentration of minerals, and that will result in an evaporator and auger becoming coated with these minerals, requiring a more frequent removal than twice per year. If in doubt about the condition of the evaporator and auger, the auger can be removed so the parts can be inspected.

Note: Water filters can filter out suspended solids, but not dissolved solids. “Soft” water may not be the complete answer. Check with a water treatment specialist regarding water treatment.

For more information on removal of these parts, see REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT.

1. To remove the auger, remove the front and top panels.

SERVICE DIAGNOSIS: Condition - No Ice Being Produced

STATUS: NOTHING OPERATES

A. Check: Voltage to the unit, restore it if there is none. Compare to the nameplate.

B. Check: The master switch, switch ON if off.

C. Check: The reset switches, ( high and low pressure): depress and release each switch. If the still does not start, check the high and low side pressures.

D. Check the low pressure cut out, if closed, go to E; if open, it could be due to:

Low refrigerant charge

The auger not turning

Restricted system

TXV not opening

1. Check the low side pressure, the low pressure cut out opens at pressure below 4 psig.

If open, reset and: a. Check if the auger is turning, if it is not, remove the gearbox and:

Check for internal damage, repair and replace in the machine.

b. Check for low charge, add some refrigerant, if the unit will operate,(normal low side pressure being about 32-34 psig) stop and look for a leak, repair, replace the drier, evacuate, and weigh in the nameplate charge. If, with added charge, the unit does not operate:

Check for a restricted system, replace the drier, evacuate, and weigh in a

nameplate charge.

Check for a Thermostatic Expansion Valve that does not open, if defective, replace it. Replace the drier, evacuate, and weigh in the nameplate charge.

E. Check the high pressure cut out, if closed go to F; if open check:

1. The pressure control opens at 450 psig. Check the high side pressure, reset the control,

and observe: on water cooled, that water soon begins to flow from the condenser drain; or, on air cooled, that the fan is forcing air through the condenser. If the unit trips out on pressures below 450 psig, replace the control. If the pressures rise above the trip out point, and the unit shuts down: a. Check for adequate water flow on water cooled, if adequate, clean the interior of the condenser. If the pressures are still too high replace the water regulating valve.

b. Check for adequate air flow on air cooled. Clean the condenser and (if used) the filter. If the air flow is poor because of the installation, advise the user that the unit should be moved, or the air around it kept cooler.

Check the fan motor for tight bearings and proper rotation.

Check that the fan blades are clean, and the fan secure to the fan motor shaft.

F. Check the water level in the reservoir. The machine must have enough water in the reservoir.

1. Restore/adjust water level. See the next step.

SERVICE DIAGNOSIS: Condition - No Ice Being Produced

STATUS: NOTHING OPERATES

G. Check: The gear motor, the motor must turn at full speed or the compressor contactor will not pull in. If the motor will not turn fast enough, check the auger and evaporator for scale build up.

If no power to the motor:

Check: The indicator lights on the circuit board, the bin empty light should be ON, the no water light should be OFF .

1. If the bin empty and no water lights are off, check the transformer. a. Transformer “load” side should have 12 to 15 volts. If not, check the “line” side. The line side should be at line voltage. If the line side has the correct voltage and the load side does not, replace the transformer.

2. If the transformer is good, and the bin empty light is OFF, check the ice level sensors.

a. Remove sensors by sliding them sideways out of the ice chute. Visually inspect them, clean if needed.

b. Look through the ice chute “eye” hole for something blocking the ice chute.

c. If the unit still does not run, replace the ice level sensors.

d. If the bin empty light is still OFF, check the circuit board.

See the instructions at the end of the manual. If the machine operates with the tester, and not by itself, the ice level sensors should be replaced.

3. If the transformer is fine, and the “no water” light is ON, check the water level sensor. a. Check the water level in the reservoir, restore if low. If the water level is ok: b. Remove the water level sensor from the reservoir and clean the tip if dirty.

CAUTION: THE TIP IS MADE OF GLASS c. Replace the water level sensor. If the no water light is still on, check that the

"water sen" plug is firmly plugged into the circuit board. d. If the no water light is still on, check the circuit board:

1. Unplug the “water sen” connector from the circuit board.

2. Plug “water sen” connector from the Scotsman Electronic Control tester into the circuit board.

a. Move the water switch on the tester to “no water” and the no water light on the circuit board should go on. If not, replace the board.

b. Move the water switch to the “water” position, the no water light should go off and after 15 seconds, the machine should start, if not, replace the circuit board.

If the machine works with the tester, and not by itself, replace the water level sensor.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE TESTER CAN BE FOUND AT THE END OF THE MANUAL.

Check the gearmotor relay on the circuit board.

If the bin empty light is on, and the water level light is off, there should be power (after 15 seconds) at the com. terminal of the gearmotor relay, if not, replace the circuit board.

SERVICE DIAGNOSIS: Condition - Low Ice Production

STATUS: EVERYTHING IS OPERATING

A. Check the air cooled condenser for dirt. Clean as required. Check the head pressure on water cooled. Adjust as required. If the head pressure is very high:

1. Air cooled. Check for high air temperatures, or restrictive air flow. Correct as needed.

2. Water cooled. Check for high water temperatures, or low water pressure.

Correct as needed.

3. The refrigerant may contain non condensable gases, purge, evacuate, and recharge per nameplate.

B. Check the evaporator

1. Clean the evaporator, the mineral build up will adversely affect the ice machines production.

2. Check the evaporator for water leaks, replace the water seal if found to be leaking.

3. Check the low side pressure; normal is about 32-34 psig. If low, assume a refrigerant leak, locate, repair and recharge.

If no leak, the TXV may be restricted, defective or not adjusted properly. If needed, replace the TXV, evacuate, and recharge per nameplate.

4. Check the insulation on the evaporator. It should be dry, with no wet spots or frost.

If the insulation has failed: replace the evaporator or add extra insulation in the form

of foam tape to the evaporator.

.

C. Check the compressor.

1. The compressor may be inefficient. a. Check the amp draw, if low change the compressor.

b. if the amp draw is normal, pinch off the suction line to check the pull down capability of the compressor. The compressor should pull down to 25 inches of vacuum and hold there for three to five minutes.

COMPRESSOR OIL.

Pressure-Temperature Chart for HP62

VAPOR VAPOR

DO NOT USE MINERAL OIL IN THIS

REFRIGERATION SYSTEM.

R-404A is a "Near Azeotrope", and therefore liquid charging is required.

When the system is serviced, a special liquid line dryer is required.

Polyolester oil absorbs water very easily, and therefore when the system is opened for service, it must be re-sealed as soon as possible (15 minutes maximum).

Special leak detection equipment is required to locate small refrigerant leaks. Usually a leak detector capable of detecting a Halogenated refrigerant or HFC-134A will work. Check with the leak detector manufacturer if in doubt.

As with any other refrigerant, do NOT mix HP62 with pressurized air when leak testing.

Evacuate to 300 microns

Recover, reclaim or recycle refrigerant. The method chosen is up to the service company. Any refrigerant placed into a Scotsman ice machine must meet ARI spec 700-88. Reclaim programs are available through most refrigerant wholesalers.

Access Valves: To use the access valves:

Remove the cap from the stem, use a 3/16" allen wrench to check that the valve is CLOSED. The remove the core cap.

Close the valve and replace the caps when the job is finished. The valve must be closed and the caps must be on or the valve will leak.
