

This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power
cord of this appliance is equipped with a three-prong plug, which is
compatible with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the
possibility of electric shock.
This appliance requires a standard 115 volt, 60Hz electrical outlet
with a three-prong ground.
Plug the ice maker into a dedicated, grounded wall outlet. Do not,
under any circumstances, remove the third (grounded) prong from
the power cord. Direct any questions concerning power and/or
grounding to a certified electrician.
Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord.
Only connect the ice maker to a properly polarized outlet. No other
appliance should be plugged into the same outlet. Make sure the
plug is fully inserted into the receptacle.
Do not run the power cord over carpeting or heat insulators. Do not
cover the cord. Keep the cord away from high traffic areas and
never submerge it in water.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT NOTICE! After unpacking your ice
maker, it must rest in an upright position for at
least one hour before you plug it in or the
compressor may be damaged, shortening the life
span of the unit.
1. Remove the exterior and interior packaging. Check that the ice
basket and ice scoop are included. If any parts are missing, please
contact customer service.
2. Clean the interior with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Take out
the ice basket and clean it. See Cleaning & Maintenance below for
complete cleaning instructions.
3. Place your ice maker in a location that is protected from direct
sunlight and other heat sources such as stoves, furnaces, and
radiators.
4. Place the ice maker on a level surface. All a minimum of 6 inches of
space between the back and sides of the unit and the wall.
5. Allow the unit’s refrigerant to settle for one hour before plugging in
the ice maker for the first time. Also ensure that the ice maker is
positioned so that the plug is fully accessible.
Notice: The recommended room temperature for this ice maker is 50°F
to 105°F. Operating the unit outside this range may cause the ice maker
to malfunction.
IMPORTANT! To avoid damaging the compressor,
after turning off the power to the ice maker,
wait at least 3 minutes before turning the
power on again.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
HOW TO MAKE ICE
1. Open the ice maker’s top cover, remove the ice basket and pour
clean water into the reservoir. Keep the water level below the
maximum water level line.
2. Press the ON/OFF button on the control panel to begin the ice
making cycle.
3. Select the ice cube size by pressing the SELECT button. If the room
temperature is lower than 60°F, we recommend selecting small size
ice cubes in order to prevent ice from sticking together.
4. The ice making cycle will last approximately 6 to 13 minutes,
depending on the selected ice cube size and the ambient room
temperature. The ice maker makes 9 pieces of ice per cycle.
REFILLING THE WATER RESERVOIR
The ADD WATER indicator light will turn on and the ice maker will
automatically stop when the water reservoir is empty or the water
pump within the reservoir cannot inject water through the ice making
mechanism.
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
2. Fill the water reservoir up to the maximum water level line.
3. Allow the refrigerant in the compressor to settle for at least 3
minutes.
4. Press the ON/OFF button again to restart the unit.
Direct or indirect sunlight may cause the infrared sensor within the unit
to malfunction. If the unit does not stop producing ice even when the
basket is full, move the unit to an area away from sunlight.
EMPTYING THE ICE BUCKET
The ice maker will stop producing more ice when the ice basket is full. If
this occurs, the ICE FULL indicator will turn on. Empty the ice into a
freezer or use as needed. Unused ice will melt back into the reservoir
and be recycled into fresh ice.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
HOW TO DRAIN YOUR ICE MAKER
To drain the ice maker, position the drainage port on the bottom of the
unit over a sink, or place a small container or receptacle under the
drainage port. Remove the plug and allow water to drain out
completely.
Change the water in the water reservoir every 24 hours to ensure clean
ice. If the unit will not be used for an extended period of time, drain all
of the water from the reservoir and dry the reservoir and ice basket.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR ICE MAKER
Clean your ice maker before use. To properly clean your ice maker,
follow these instructions:
1. Unplug the unit from the power supply.
2. Place a small container or receptacle under the drainage port and
clean the interior with diluted detergent, warm water and a soft
cloth. First pour the warm water with diluted detergent into the
internal water reservoir and then into the space below the top
cover.
3. Use this water and detergent solution to clean the rest of the ice
maker’s interior and drain out the water by unplugging the drain
cap located on the bottom of the unit. Dry the interior with a soft
cloth. Use warm water and diluted detergent to clean the exterior
of the ice maker. Dry the exterior with a soft cloth.
To remove the build-up of calcium or other impurities, add a capful of
vinegar or lemon juice to the water in the reservoir and run for two or
three ice-making cycles. Drain and refill the reservoir with clean, warm
water. Run two more cycles to rinse the vinegar or lemon-juice.

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
The “ADD WATER”
indicator light is on.
POSSIBLE CAUSE
There is not enough
water in the tank.
The “ICE FULL” indicator
light is on.
There is too much ice
in the basket.
The ice making cycle
appears to be normal
but no ice is being
produced.
The room temperature
or the water
temperature in the
inner tank is too high.
The ice cubes stick
together.
The refrigerant may be
leaking.
A pipe in the cooling
system may be
blocked.
The ice making cycle is
too long.
The water temperature
in the inner tank is too
low.
SOLUTION
Turn off the ice maker,
fill it with water, and
press the ON/OFF button
again to restart the unit.
Remove ice from the
basket. Continuously
press the SELECT button
for 5 seconds. The unit
could make ice for 10
cycles even if the ICE
FULL indicator light is on.
The room temperature
should be between 50°F
- 105°F while the water
temperature should be
between 15°F - 90°F.
Change the water in the
reservoir or move the ice
maker to a cooler
location.
Consult a qualified
technician.
Consult a qualified
technician.
Turn off the ice maker
and restart it when the
ice is melted. Select
small size ice cubes with
the next cycle.
Replace the water in the
reservoir. The
recommended water

The ice has a “plastic”
taste.
The unit’s interior may
need to be cleaned.
The ice cubes have a
cloudy appearance.
There may be trace
minerals in your water
or ice is being
produced too quickly.
Unit is not draining
properly
The drain plug is stuck
inside the unit
Add a tablespoon of
lemon juice or vinegar to
a full tank of water and
allow the ice maker to
cycle a few times.
Ice cubes may develop
cloudiness when water is
frozen quickly. As ice
develops on the surface
of water, certain gases
can no longer remain
dissolved and begin to
surface as microscopic
bubbles. This cloudiness
is normal.
Manually drain the unit
by emptying the water
through the top. Use a
thin, blunt object to
clear the drain hole of
the plastic plug from the
top of the unit. Warning,
do not use sharp objects
as these may damage
the plug and its ability to
seal.
