GENERAL INFORMATION AND INSTALLATION
A. INTRODUCTION
This manual provides the specifications and the
step-by-step procedures for the installation, startup and operation, maintenance and cleaning for
the SCOTSMAN EF series icemakers.
The Electronic Flakers are quality designed,
engineered and manufactured.
Their ice making systems are thoroughly tested
providing the utmost in flexibility to fit the needs
of a particular user.
NOTE. To retain the safety and performance
built into this icemaker, it is important that
installation and maintenance be conducted
in the manner outlined in this manual.
9. See data plate on the rear side of the unit
and check that local main voltage corresponds
with the voltage specified on it.
CAUTION. Incorrect voltage supplied to
the icemaker will void your parts
replacement program.
10. Remove the manufacturer’s registration card
from the inside of the User Manual and fill-in all
parts including: Model and Serial Number taken
from the data plate.
Forward the completed self-addressed
registration card to SCOTSMAN EUROPE
factory.
11. If necessary fit the four legs into their seats
on the machine base and adjust them to the
desired level.
B. UNPACKING AND INSPECTION
1. Call your authorized SCOTSMAN Distributor
or Dealer for proper installation.
2. Visually inspect the exterior of the packing
and skid. Any severe damage noted should be
reported to the delivering carrier and a concealed
damage claim form filled in subjet to inspection of
the contents with the carrier’s representative
present.
3. a) Cut and remove the plastic strip securing
the carton box to the skid.
b) Cut open the top of the carton and remove
the polystyre protection sheet.
c) Pull out the polystyre posts from the
corners and then remove the carton.
4. Remove the front and the rear panels of the
unit and inspect for any concealed damage.
Notify carrier of your claim for the concealed
damage as stated in step 2 above.
5. Remove all internal support packing and
masking tape. (Leg package and water inlet and
outlet hoses are located in the storage bin
compartment).
6. Check that refrigerant lines do not rub against
or touch other lines or surfaces, and that the fan
blades move freely.
C. LOCATION AND LEVELLING
WARNING. This Ice Flaker is designed for
indoor installation only. Extended periods
of operation at temperature exceeding
the following limitations will constitute
misuse under the terms of the SCOTSMAN
Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty
resulting in LOSS of warranty coverage.
1. Position the unit in the selected permanent
location.
Criteria for selection of location include:
a) Minimum room temperature 10°C (50°F)
and maximum room temperature 40°C (100°F).
b) Water inlet temperatures: minimum 5°C
(40°F) and maximum 35°C (90°F).
c) Well ventilated location for air cooled models
(Clean the air cooled condenser at frequent
intervals).
d) Service access: adequate space must be
left for all service connections through the rear of
the ice maker. A minimum clearance of 15 cm
(6") must be left at the sides of the unit for routing
cooling air drawn into and exhausted out of the
compartment to maintain proper condensing
operation of air cooled models.
2. Level the unit in both the left to right and front
to rear directions.
7. Check that the compressor fits snugly onto
all its mounting pads.
D. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
8. Use clean damp cloth to wipe the surfaces
inside the storage bin and the outside of the
cabinet.
See data plate for current requirements to
determine wire size to be used for electrical
connections. All SCOTSMAN icemakers require
a solid earth wire.
Page 12
Page 12
All SCOTSMAN ice machines are supplied from
the factory completely pre-wired and require only
electrical power connections to the wire cord
provided at the rear of the unit.
Make sure that the ice machine is connected to
its own circuit and individually fused (see data
plate for fuse size).
The maximum allowable voltage variation should
not exceed -10% and +10% of the data plate
rating. Low voltage can cause faulty functioning
and may be responsible for serious damage to
the overload switch and motor windings.
NOTE. All external wiring should conform to
national, state and local standards and
regulations.
Check voltage on the line and the ice maker’s
data plate before connecting the unit.
Connect the 3/4" GAS male fitting of the water
inlet, using the flexible hose supplied to the cold
water supply line with regular plumbing fitting
and a shut-off valve installed in an accessible
position between the water supply line and the
unit.
WATER DRAIN
The recommended drain tube is a plastic or
flexible hose with 18 mm (3/4") I.D. which runs to
an open trapped and vented drain. When the
drain is a long run, allow 3 cm pitch per meter
(1/4" pitch per foot).
Install a vertical open vent on drain line high point
at the unit drain connection to ensure good
draining.
The ideal drain receptacle is a trapped and
vented floor drain.
WATER DRAIN - WATER COOLED MODELS
E.
WATER SUPPLY AND DRAIN
CONNECTIONS
GENERAL
When choosing the water supply for the ice flaker
consideration should be given to:
a) Length of run
b) Water clarity and purity
c) Adequate water supply pressure
Since water is the most important single ingredient
in producting ice you cannot emphasize too
much the three items listed above.
Low water pressure, below 1 bar may cause
malfunction of the ice maker unit.
Water containing excessive minerals will tend to
produce scale build-up on the interior parts of the
water system while too soft water (with too lo
contents of mineral salts), will produce a very
hard flaker ice.
Connect the 3/4" GAS male fitting of the
condenser water drain, utilizing a second flexible
hose to the open trapped and vented drain.
This additional drain line must not interconnect to
any other of the units drains.
NOTE. The water supply and the water drain
must be installed to conform with the local
code. In some case a licensed plumber and/
or a plumbing permit is required.
The water can be pumped out up to 1.5 m rise
or

7. Have the bolts holding the compressor down
been checked to ensure that the compressor is
snugly fitted onto the mounting pads?
8. Check all refrigerant lines and conduit lines
to guard against vibrations and possible failure.
2. Is there at least a 15 cm (6") clearance
around the unit for proper air circulation?
9. Have the bin liner and cabinet been wiped
clean?
3.
10. Has the owner/user been given the User
Manual and been instructed on the importance of
periodic maintenance checks?
F.
FINAL CHECK LIST
Is the unit level? (IMPORTANT)
4. Have all the electrical and plumbing
connections been made, and is the water supply
shut-off valve open?
5. Has the voltage been tested and checked
against the data plate rating?
11. Has the Manufacturer’s registration card
been filled in properly? Check for correct model
and serial number against the serial plate and
mail the registration card to the factory.
6. Has the water supply pressure been checked
to ensure a water pressure of at least 1 bar
(14 psi).
12. Has the owner been given the name and the
phone number of the authorized SCOTSMAN
Service Agency serving him?
G. INSTALLATION PRACTICE
WARNING. This icemaker is not designed for outdoor installation and will not function in
ambient temperatures below 10°C (50°F) or above 40°C (100°F).
This icemaker will malfunction with water temperatures below 5°C (40°F) or above 35°C
(90°F).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
START UP
B. Elapsed the 3 minutes - stand by period - the
unit starts operating with the activation in
sequence of the following assemblies:
GEAR MOTOR
COMPRESSOR
FAN MOTOR (if unit is an air cooled version)
kept under control by the condenser temperature sensor which has its probe within the condenser
fins (Fig.2).
After having correctly installed the ice maker and
completed the plumbing and electrical
connections, perform the following “Start-up”
procedure.
A. Open the water supply line shutoff valve and
put the unit under electrical power by moving the
main switch, on the power supply line, to the ON
position.
The first LED - GREEN - will glow to signal that
unit is under power.
C. After 2 or 3 minutes from the compressor
start up, observe that flaker ice begins dropping
off the ice spout to fall into the storage bin.
NOTE. Every time the unit is put under
power, after being kept for sometime in shutoff conditions (electrically disconnected) the
RED LED will blink for 3 minutes after which
the unit will start up with the immediate
operation of the gear motor assembly and,
after few seconds, of the compressor assy
(Fig.1).
NOTE. The first ice bits that drop into the ice
storage bin are not so hard as the evaporating
temperature has not yet reached the correct
operating value. It is necessary to allow the
ice - just made - to cure itself and wait for
about ten minutes for the evaporating temperature to reach the correct value so to
make more hard bits of ice.

NOTE. If, after ten minutes from the
compressor start-up, the evaporating temperature has not dropped down to a value
lower than -1°C (30°F) due to an insufficient
quantity of refrigerant in the system, the
evaporating temperature sensor detects such
an abnormal situation and stops consequently
the unit operation (drive motor keeps on
working for 3' delay then stops).
In this circustance, the 5th warning YELLOW
LED will blink.
NOTE. On air cooled models, the condenser
temperature sensor, which is located within
the condenser fins, keep the head (condensing) pressure between 17 and 18 bar.
In case of condenser clogging such to prevent
the proper flow of the cooling air or, in case
the fan motor is out of operation or shortage
of water in the water cooled condenser, the
condenser temperature rises and when it
reaches 70°C (160°F) - for air cooled version
- and 60°C (140°F) - for water cooled version
- the condenser temperature sensor shutsoff the ice maker (drive motor keeps on
working for 3' delay then stops) with the
consequent light-up of the RED WARNING
LIGHT (Fig.3).
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY. After having diagnosed and
eliminated the cause of the poor evaporating
temperature (insufficient refrigerant in the
system, etc.) it is necessary to unplug and
plug in again to restart the machine.
The unit, before resuming the total operation,
will go through the usual 3 minutes STANDBY period.
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
After having diagnosed the reason of the
temperature rise and removed its cause, it is

This will cause a gradual decrease of the water
level in the float reservoir and as soon as the level
gets below the sensors, the flaker stops to operate (drive motor keeps on working by 3' delay
then stops) and the YELLOW warning LED will
glow to signal the shortage of water (Fig. 4).
F. Check for correct operation of the ice level
control, by putting some ice so to cut the light
beam of the sensing eyes.
This interruption will cause an immediate blinking
of the Bin Full YELLOW LED located on the front
of the P.C. Board and after about 10 seconds
causes the shutoff of the unit (compressor first
and 3' later the gear reducer) with the simultaneous lighting (steady) of the Same LED
signalling the full bin situation (Fig. 5).
NOTE. The water level sensor detects the
presence of sufficient water in the float
reservoir and confirms it to the micro
processor by maintaining a low voltage
current flow between the two sensors using
the water as conductor.
Remove the ice bin so to allow the resumption of
the light beam previously interrupted. After about
10 seconds the flaker will resume - through the 3
minutes STAND-BY period - the ice making
process with the extinguishing of the YELLOW
LED.
WARNING. The use of de-mineralized
water (water with no salt content) having
an electrical conductivity lower than 30
µS, will cause the ability of the water
sensors to vanish with the consequent
CUT-OUT of the flaker operations and the
glowing of the YELLOW LED of shortage
of water, even though that water is indeed
in the reservoir.
NOTE. The ICE LEVEL CONTROL
(INFRA-RED SYSTEM) is independent of
the temperature however, the reliability of
its detection can be affected by external
light radiations or by any sort of dirt and
scale sediment which may deposit
directly on the light source and on the
receiver.
To prevent any possible ice maker
malfunction, due to negative affection of
the light detector, it is advisable to locate
the unit where it is not reached by any
direct light beam or light radiation, also
it is recommended to keep the bin door
constantly closed.
After this, open the water supply line shutoff
valve to fill up again the float reservoir, the
YELLOW LED goes off while the RED LED
starts blinking.
After 3 minutes the unit resumes its total operation
with the immediate start-up of the gear motor
and, 2 seconds later, of the compressor.

NOTE. During the life of the machine the Ice
Level Control may require a recalibration
mainly when the glass of the two optical eyes
are covered by a thin lay of scale.
To do it just follow the following procedure:
• With unit OFF push and old the Reset
Button of the PC Board
• Give power to the machine through the
Green Master Switch
• Hold the PC Board Reset Button till the
leds start to blink/flash (more or less 10
seconds)
• Release the PC Board Reset Button
The Optical Ice Level Control is now
recalibrated.
Check for the correct operation of the Optical
Ice Level Control by plasing a handfull of ice
in between the two eyes.
The Bin Full yellow led must start to blink/
flash immediately and, 10 seconds later, the
machine must trip OFF.
G. If previously installed, remove the refrigerant
service gauges and re-fit the unit service panels
previously removed.
H. Instruct the owner/user on the general
operation of the ice machine and about the
cleaning and care it requires.
As soon as the water into the Sealed Water
Reservoir reaches the maximum level, the two
metal pins close the electrical contact through
the water, transmitting a low voltage current to
the PC Board.
The PC Board activates the Water Drain
Pump for 15 seconds pumping out most of
the water contained into the Sealed Water
Reservoir.

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
WATER CIRCUIT
The water enter in the machine through the water
inlet fitting which incorporates a strainer and it is
located at the rear side of the cabinet and then it
goes to the water reservoir flowing through a float
valve.
NOTE. The presence of the water in the float
reservoir is detected by a system of two
sensors which operates in conjunction with
the P.C. Board. The two sensors use the
water as a conductor to maintain a low voltage
current flow between them signalling in this
way to the P.C. Board the presence of the
water in the reservoir. In case the water used
is very soft (de-mineralized) or the float
reservoir gets empty the current flow between
the sensors become so weak or is no longer
maintained that, as consequence, the P.C.
Board shutoff the flaker operation (drive motor
keeps on working by 3' delay then stops) with
the simultaneous glowing of the YELLOW
LED signalling “Shortage of water”.
The float reservoir is positioned at the side of the
freezing cylinder at such an height to be able to
maintain a constant water level around the freezer
auger.
In fact, the water flows from the reservoir into the
bottom inlet of the freezing cylinder to sorround
the stainless steel auger which is vertically fitted
in the center of the freezer.
In the freezer the incoming water gets chilled into
soft (slush) ice which is moved upward by the
rotating action of the auger. The stainless steel
auger that rotates counter-clockwise within the
freezer, is powered by a direct drive gear motor
and carries the ice upward along the refrigerated
freezer inner walls and by doing so the ice gets
progressively thicker and harder.
ICE SPOUT

FLOAT VALVE
WATER INLET LINE

The ice, being costantly lifted up, meet the toothed
point of the ice breaker which is fitted on the top
end of the auger, where it gets compacted,
cracked and forced to change from vertical into
horizontal motion to be discharged out, through
the ice spout, into the storage bin.
By running the ice maker, i.e. by putting the unit
under power, starts the automatic and continuous
icemaking process which would not stop until the
ice storage bin gets filled-up to the level of the
control “eyes” located on the sides of the ice spout.
As the ice level raises to interrupt the light beam
running between the two infrared Leds, the unit
stops after six seconds (compressor first and 3'
later the gear reducer), with the simulteneous
glowing of the YELLOW LED signalling the “Full
Bin” situation.
NOTE. The interruption of the light beam
between the two light sensors is immediately
signalled by the blinking of the BIN FULL
YELLOW LED located on the front of the
P.C. Board.
After about 10" of steady interruption of
the light beam the unit stops (drive motor
keeps on working by 3' delay then stops) and
the “Full Bin” YELLOW LED glows steady.
The ten seconds of delay prevent the unit
from stopping for any undue reason like the
momentarily interruption of the light beam
caused by the flakes that slides along the ice
spout before dropping into the bin.
As some ice gets scooped out from the storage
bin, the light beam between the two sensors
resumes (fast blinking of YELLOW LED) and ten
seconds later the ice machine restarts the ice
making process - going always through the 3'
stand by - and the YELLOW LED goes off.
REFRIGERANT CIRCUIT
The hot gas refrigerant discharged out from the
compressor reaches the condenser where, being
cooled down, condenses into liquid.
Flowing into the liquid line it passes through the
drier filter, then it goes all the way through the
capillary tube where it looses some of its pressure
so that its pressure and temperature are lowered.
Next, the refrigerant enters into the evaporator
coil wrapped around the freezer inner tube.
The water being constantly fed at the interior of
the freezer inner tube, exchange heat with the
refrigerant circulating into the evaporator coil,
this cause the refrigerant to boil-off and evaporate, thereby it changes from liquid into vapor.
The vapor refrigerant then passes through the
suction accumulator and through the suction line
where the refrigerant exchanges heat with the
one flowing into the capillary tube (warmer) before
being sucked into the compressor to be recirculated.
The refrigerant heat pressure is kept between
two pre-set values 17÷18 bar - 245÷260 psig by
the condenser temperature sensor which has its
probe located within the condenser fins - in air
cooled versions.
This condenser temperature sensor, when
senses a rising of the condenser temperature
beyond the pre-fixed limit, changes its electrical
resistance and send a low voltage power flow to
Page 21
Page 21
the MICRO-PROCESSOR of the P.C. Board
which energizes, through a TRIAC, the Fan
Motor in ON-OFF mode.
When the opposite situation occures, i.e. the
condenser temperature gets below the pre-fixed
NOTE. In case the condenser temperature probe
senses that the condenser temperature has
rised to 70°C (160°F) - on air cooled versions
- or 60°C (140°F) - on water cooled versions for one of the following abnormal reasons:

AMBIENT TEMPERATURE HIGHER THEN
43°C (110°F)
it causes the total and immediate SHUT-OFF
of the machine (drive motor keeps on working
by 3' delay then stops) in order to prevent the
unit from operating in abnormal and dangerous
conditions. When the ice maker stops on
account of this protective device, there is a
simultaneous glowing of the RED LED, warning
the user of the Hi Temperature situation. The
machine will remain in OFF mode for one hour
then it will restart automatically. In case the unit
trips OFF again in alarm for 3 times in 3 hours,
the machine SHUTS OFF DEFINITIVELY.
After having eliminated the source of the
excessive con-denser temperature, to restart
the ice machine it is necessary to unplug and
plug in again. The RED LED starts blinking
and three minutes later the flaker unit resume
its normal operating mode. The condenser
temperature sensor has a further safety
function which consist in preventing the unit
from operating in Lo-ambient conditions i.e.
when the condenser body temperature equivalent to the ambient temperature - is
lower then 1°C 34°F (Fig.6). As soon as the
ambient temperature rises up to 5°C (40°F)
the PC Board will automatically restarts the
machine through the three minutes delay time.

limit, the temperature sensor changes again its
electrical resistance reducing therefore the current
flow to the P.C. Board to cause a temporary stop
of the Fan Motor.
On the water cooled versions, the refrigerant
head pressure is kept at the constant value of
17 bar (245 psig) by the metered amount of
water passing through the condenser which is
regulated by the action of the Water Regulating
Valve that has its capillary tube connected to the
liquid refrigerant line. As pressure increases, the
water regulating valve opens to increase the flow
of cooling water to the condenser.

The refrigerant suction or Lo-pressure sets - in
normal ambient conditions (21 °C) - on the value
of 2.4 - 2.6 bar (35 - 38 psig) after few minutes
from the unit start-up.
This value can vary of 0.1 or 0.2 bar (1.5÷3 psig)
in relation to the water temperture variations
influencing the freezer cylinder.

COMPONENTS DESCRIPTION
A. GREEN MASTER SWITCH PUSH
BUTTON
Located in the front of the machine it’s used to
switch ON and OFF the unit by pushing its green
push button. When ON, its green light is ON as
well.
NOTE. The machine will remain in OFF
mode for one hour then it will restart
automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
To restart the unit after the shutoff caused by
the hi evaporating temperature, it is necessary to switch OFF and ON the power line
main disconnect Switch.
B. RED ALARM/RE-SET PUSH BUTTON
Located in the front of the machine (just beside
the Master Switch) it works in conjuction with the
PC Board and it’s activated when:
• Consensing temperature is higher then 70°C
(air cooled version) - ON steady with machine
in OFF mode
• Consensing temperature is higher then 60°C
(water cooled version) - ON steady with
machine in OFF mode
• Condenser sensor out of order - Blinking
twice and repeat with machine in OFF mode
• Condenser air filter need to be cleaned - ON
steady with machine in ON mode
• Water system need to be cleaned - Slow
blinking with machine in ON mode.
• Pump discharge system out of order - Blinking
fast with machine in OFF mode
On the first two cases it’s possible to Re-Set the
operation of the machine pushing and hold the
Red Alarm Re-Set Button by 5" till the Red Light
is OFF.
On the third case, it’s necessary first to replace
the condenser sensor then, push and hold for 5"
the Red Re-Set Button.
On the last case (Pump discharge system) to
Re-Set switch OFF and ON the machine.
C. EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE
SENSOR
The evaporator sensor probe is inserted into its
tube well, which is welded on the evaporator
outlet line, it detects the temperature of the
refrigerant on the way out from the evaporator
and signals it by suppying a low voltage current
flow to the P.C. Board Micro-Processor.
According to the current received, the microprocessor let the ice maker to continue its
operations. In case the evaporating temperature, after 10 minutes from the unit start-up, does
not go below -1°C (30°F) due to shortage of
refrigerant in the system the evaporator sensor
signal reaching the microprocessor is such to
stop immediately the unit operation (drive motor
keeps on working by 3' delay then stops), with the
5th Warning YELLOW LED that blinks.
D. WATER LEVEL SENSOR
This sensor system consist of two small stainless
steel rods vertically fitted on the inner face of the
reservoir cover and electrically connected to the
low voltage circuit of the P.C. Board.
When the cover of the reservoir is positioned in
its place the tips of both the rods dip into the
reservoir water and detects and signals its
presence by making use of its electrical
resistance.
NOTE. In the event of shortage of water in
the reservoir or, in case the water used is too
soft (de-mineralized) to cause greater
resistence to the current flow (conductivity
lower than 30 µS) this sensor system causes
the shutoff of the machine (drive motor
keeps on working by 3' delay then stops), to
protect it from running with an interrupted or
inadequate water supply. In this situation the
YELLOW LED will glow to warn of the
machine shutoff and the reason why.
E.
CONDENSER TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The condenser temperature sensor probe,
located within the condenser fins (air cooled
version) or in contact with the tube coil (water
cooled version) detects the condenser temperature variations and signals them by supplying
current, at low voltage, to the P.C. BOARD.
In case the condenser temperature sensor
detects a temperature at the condenser lower
than +1°C (33°F) that signify that the ambient
temperature is at the same value, therefore it is
too low for the correct unit operation, the sensor
signals to the microprocessor to stop immediately
or to do not start the unit operations up to the
moment that the ambient temperature will rise to
more acceptables conditions (5°C).
In the air cooled versions, in relation to the
different current received, the micro processor of
the P.C. BOARD supplies, through a TRIAC, the
power at high voltage to the fan motor so that it
can cool the condenser and reduce its temperature.
In the event the condenser temperature rises
and reaches 70°C or 60°C the current arriving to
the micro processor is such to cause an immediate and total stop of the machine operation
(drive motor keeps on working by 3' delay then
stops).
Page 25
Page 25
NOTE. The machine will remain in OFF mode
for one hour then it will restart automa-tically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
To restart the unit after the shutoff caused by
the hi condenser temperature, it is necessary
to switch OFF and ON the power line main
disconnect Switch.
F.
GEAR MOTOR ROTATION AND SPEED
SENSOR
This safety device is housed on top of the Drive
Motor and detects - based on Hall Effect principle
- the rotating speed and rotating direction of the
drive Motor.
Should the rotating speed drop below
1300 r.p.m. the magnitude measured by this
device is such to signal to the microprocessor to
stop the unit and light-up the YELLOW LED.
About the same reaction occures when the drive
motor will tend to rotate in the wrong direction
(counterclockwise) situation that, if it occures,
will greatly affect all the freezer and gear reducer
components.
NOTE. The machine will remain in OFF mode
for one hour then it will restart automa-tically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY. To restart the unit after the
shutoff caused by this safety device, it is
necessary first to eliminate the cause that
has generated the intervention of the device
and then switch OFF and ON the power line
main disconnect switch.
interrupted for as long as 10 seconds, the ice
machine stops (drive motor keeps on working by
3' delay then stops) with the glowing-up of the
2nd YELLOW LED to monitor the full ice bin
situation. The 10 seconds of delay prevents that
any minimum interruption of the light beam due
to the regular ice chuting through the ice spout
may stop the operation of the unit.
NOTE. During the life of the machine the Ice
Level Control may require a recalibration
mainly when the glass of the two optical eyes
are covered by a thin lay of scale.
To do it just follow the following procedure:
• With unit OFF push and old the Reset
Button of the PC Board
• Give power to the machine through the
Green Master Switch
• Hold the PC Board Reset Button till the
leds start to blink/flash (more or less 10
seconds)
• Release the PC Board Reset Button
The Optical Ice Level Control is now
recalibrated.
Check for the correct operation of the Optical
Ice Level Control by plasing a handfull of ice
in between the two eyes.
The Bin Full yellow led must start to blink/
flash immediately and, 10 seconds later, the
machine must trip OFF.
As soon as the ice is scooped out (with the
resumption of the light beam between the two
infrared sensor of ice level control) 10 seconds
later the ice machine resumes its operation with
the simul-taneous extinguishing the 2nd YELLOW
LED.
H. P.C. BOARD (Data processor)
G. ICE BIN LEVEL LIGHT CONTROL
The electronic ice bin level control, located into
the ice spout, has the function to stop the operation

K.
FLOAT RESERVOIR
The float reservoir consists of a plastic water pan
on which is fitted a float valve with its setting
screw. The float valve modulate the incoming
water flow to maintain a constant water level in
the reservoir, level that corresponds to the one in
the freezing cylinder to ensure proper ice formation
and fluidity.
On the inner side of the reservoir cover are fitted
the two water level sensors which detects the
presence or the shortage of water in the reservoir.
NOTE. It is very important to make sure of the
correct fitting of the cover on the reservoir in
order to enable the sensor to efficiently control
the water situation avoiding undue shutoff
interventions.

FREEZING CYLINDER (EVAPORATOR)
The freezing cylinder is made of a stainless steel
vertical tube on which exterior is wrapped around
the cooling coil with the evaporating chamber
and in its interior is located the auger which
rotates on its vertical axis and it is maintained
aligned by the top and bottom bearings. A water
seal system is located in the bottom part of the
freezer while at the top end is fitted the ice
breaker.
The water constantly flowing into the cylinder
bottom part, freezes into ice when in contact with
the cylinder inner walls. The ice is then lifted up by
the rotating auger and compacted and forced out
by the ice breaker.
level. All the three gears are encased in case
bearings and are covered by lubricant grease
(MOBILPLEX IP 44).
Two seal rings, one fitted on the rotor shaft and
the other on the output shaft keep the gear case
sealed.
Hovewer, the interior can be inspected and
serviced by unbolting the two halves of the
aluminium gear case housing.
The gear reducer output shaft is connected to the
freezer auger by a ratched coupling which is
made of two toothed halves that engages
themselves only if turned in the correct direction
namely, conterclockwise.
O. FAN MOTOR (Air cooled version)
M. ICE BREAKER
The ice breaker is fitted in the freezer upper part
it has two breaker teeth to break the ice and with
its slanted shape from the rear tooth to the front
one it compacts and forces the ice out in an
horizontal way. By undergoing this, the ice looses
its excess of water content so it drops into the bin
in hard dry bits of ice.
In the ice breaker it is housed the top bearing
which is made of two rolls bearings positioned to
withstand the auger axial and radial loads. This
bearing is lubricated with a food grade - water
resistant grease.
NOTE. It is advisable to check the conditions
of both the lubricant grease and the top
bearing every six months.
The fan motor is controlled through the P.C.
BOARD and the TRIAC by the condenser temperature sensor. Normally it operates to draw cooling
air through the condenser fins.
In cold ambient situation, the fan motor can run
at intermittance as the condenser pressure must
be kept between two corresponding head
pressure values 17÷18 bar-245÷260 psig.
P.
WATER REGULATING VALVE
(Water cooled version)
This valve controls the head pressure in the
refrigerant system by regulating the flow of water
going to the condenser.
As pressure increases, the water regulating valve opens to increase the flow of cooling water.
N. DRIVE GEAR MOTOR
Q. COMPRESSOR
This motoreducer is made of a single phase
electric motor with permanent capacitor directly
fitted on a gear box.
The drive motor rotor is kept aligned on its vertical
axis by two ball bearings permanently lubricated.
The gear case contains a train of three spur gears
the first one of which is in fiber to limit the noise
The hermetic compressor is the heart of the
refrigerant system and it is used to circulate and
retrieve the refrigerant throughout the entire
system. It compresses the low pressure
refrigerant vapor causing its temperature to rise
and become high pressure hot vapor which is
then released through the discharge valve.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTION
A. GENERAL
The periods and the procedures for maintenance
and cleaning are given as guides and are not to
be construed as absolute or invariable.
Cleaning, especially, will vary depending upon
local water and ambient conditions and the ice
volume produced; and, each icemaker must be
maintened individually, in accordance with its
particular location requirements.
9. Check the ice level control sensor to test
shut-off. Put some ice in front of the ice level
control so to cut off the light beam for at least 10
seconds.
This should cause the immediate blinking of the
Bin Full YELLOW LED located in the front of P.C.
Board and, 10seconds later, the total stopping of
the ice maker with the simultaneous light up of
the Full Bin Yellow LED (steady).
NOTE. Test the operation of the Ice Level
Control using ice NOT HAND.
B. ICEMAKER
The following maintenance should be scheduled
at least two times per year on these icemakers.
1.
Check and clean the water line strainer.
2. Remove the cover from the float reservoir care to do not damage the two water sensors and depress the float to make sure that a full
stream of water enters into the reservoir.
3. Check that the icemaker is levelled in side to
side and in front to rear directions.
4. Check that the water level in the water
reservoir is below the overflow but high enough
that it does not run out of the spout opening.
NOTE. The float must close positively the
incoming water flow when its fulcrum, housing
the setting screw, is perpendicular to the
water nozzle.
5. Clean the water system, water reservoir
and the interior of freezing cylinder using a
solution of SCOTSMAN Ice Machine Cleaner.
Refer to procedure C cleaning instructions and
after cleaning will indicate frequency and procedure to be followed in local areas.
NOTE. Cleaning requirements vary
according to the local water conditions and
individual user operation.
6. If required, polish the two sensor rods
secured to the float reservoir cover, heavy scale
sediment on them can be removed with the help
of a bit of SCOTSMAN Cleaner plain.
Within few seconds from the removal of the ice
between the sensor lights the ice maker resume
its operation.
NOTE. The ice level control uses devices
that sense light, therefore they must be kept
clean enough so they can “see”.
10. Check for refrigerant leaks and for proper
frost line, which should frost as far as approx. 20
cm (8") from the compressor.
When doubtful about refrigerant charge, install
refrigerant gauges on corresponding Schräder
valves and check for correct refrigerant pressures.
(See Operating pressure at page 20 of this
manual).
11. Check that fan blades move freely and are
not touching any surfaces.
12. Remove the retaining ring and the hook and
cap from the top of the freezer assembly then
inspect the top bearing, wipe clean of all grease
and apply a coating of food grade water proof
grease P/N 263612.00
NOTE. It is recommended to use only food
grade and waterproof grease to lubricate the
freezer top bearing.
13. Check the quality of ice. Ice flakes should be
wet when formed, but will cure rapidily to normal
hardness in the bin.
NOTE. It is not abnormal for some water to
emerge from the ice spout with the flaker ice.
7. With the ice machine and fan motor OFF on
air cooled models, clean condenser using vacuum
cleaner, whisk broom or non metallic brush taking
care to do not damage the condenser/ambient
temperature sensor.
C. CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS OF WATER
SYSTEM
8. Check for water leaks and tighten drain line
connections. Pour water down bin drain line to
be sure that drain line is open and clear.
2. Remove all ice stored in the bin to prevent it
from getting contaminated with the cleaning
solution.
1. Switch OFF the Master disconnect switch
on the power line.
Page 39
3. Shut close the water shutoff valve on water
line.
4. Remove the top panels to gain access to the
water reservoir.
5. Remove the float reservoir cover and with a
piece of copper wire jump the two water level
sensors.
6. Place a water pan under the freezer water
inlet port, disconnect the water hose from this
port and allow the water from the freezer to flow
into the pan previously positioned.
Then refit the water hose to the freezer water
inlet port.
7. Prepare the cleaning solution by diluting in
a plastic container one or two liters of warm
water (45°-50°C) with a 0,1-0,2 liters of
SCOTSMAN Ice Machine Cleaner.
WARNING. The SCOTSMAN Ice Machine
Cleaner contains Phosphoric and
Hydroxyacetic acids. These compounds
are corrosive and 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. Switch ON the Master switch to start the unit
then pour the cleaning solution into the float
reservoir.
9. Wait for about three minutes for the unit to
start operating, then continue to slowly pour the
cleaning solution into the water reservoir taking
care to maintain the level just below the overflow.
Page 39
NOTE. The ice made with the cleaning
solution is slushy and coloured also, it may
tend to loose fluidity creating some resistence
in being elevated and extruded; this situation
can be heard by the creacking noise made by
the ice.
Should this occure it is recommended to stop
for few minutes the ice machine in order to
allow the ice in the freezer to partially melt.
10. When all the cleaning solution has been
used up, open the water shutoff valve to allow
new fresh water to flow into the reservoir. Let the
unit to continue to run until the ice resumes the
normal colour and hardness.
11. Stop the icemaker and pour warm water on
the ice deposited into the storage bin to melt it up.
NOTE. DO NOT use ice produced with the
cleaning solution. Be sure none remains in
the bin.
12. Pour into the water reservoir 1 cc. (approx
20 drops) of Scotsman Sanitiser (Antialgae P/N
264000.00) then switch the unit ON.
13. Left the unit running for approx 10 minutes
then remove the copper wire used to jump the
two sensors for the water level and place back
correctly the cover on the float reservoir.
NOTE. DO NOT use ice produced with the
sanitising solution.
14. With a sponge moisted with a sanitising
solution, wipe clean all the bin interior surfaces.
REMEMBER. To prevent the accumulation
of undesirable bacteria it is necessary to
sanitise the interior of the storage bin with an
anti-algae disinfectant solution every week.
