PRE-INSTALLATION INFORMATION
These two models are modular ice cube machines
that are designed to be connected to a remote
condenser.
The remote condenser coil must be of adequate
size and must NOT have been used with a
mineral oil refrigeration system. Specific Scotsman
remote condensers are recommended.
A stacking kit (KSCMS) is required for stacking
these ice machines. It interconnects the sonor bin
ice level controls. A CME865 or CME1002 may
only be stacked onto models CME865, CME1002,
MCM860, MCM1062 or CMS1002.
These models will fit any 30" wide Scotsman bin,
such as the BH550 or HTB555, without a bin top.
Other bins require a bin top.
Note: The sonar transducer, located in the base of
the machine, must NOT be covered by installation
material (such as a non-Scotsman bin top). The
transducer must have clear access to the ice to be
able to sense the ice level. See page 5 for location.

FOR THE INSTALLER: Environmental Limitations
Installation Limitations
Water Limitations
The ice making portion of this ice system is
designed to be installed indoors, in a controlled
environment.
An ice machine is a food manufacturing plant; it
takes a raw material, water, and turns it into a food
product, ice. The purity of the water is very
important in obtaining pure ice and in maximizing
product life. These general recommendations
should help keep the ice maker clean:

Operating the ice machine outside of the above
limitations, or outdoors, is potentially damaging to
the machine; also it is misuse of the machine,
which may void the warranty.
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 CSA.
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.
1. Filter the water used to produce ice. Water filters
vary greatly in ability and function. Install one that
filters out suspended solids to a dimension of 5
microns or smaller. The finer the filter the better,
but finer filters will clog sooner than course ones. It
may be necessary to add a course filter ahead of
the fine filter to prolong filter life.
2. Check with a water treatment specialist for a
water test, and recommendations regarding filters
and treatment.
Service Limitations
Some space on the sides, the back and the top
should be allowed for service and utility
connections.
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 INSTALLER: Machine & Bin Assembly
Overview:
Storage Bin:
This ice system consists of 4 major assemblies:
1. Measure the location of the ice machine floor
drain relative to the installed location of the bin.
Route all drain lines so that when the machine is
installed in its normal position, the drain tubes
terminate just above the floor drain.
1. The ice storage bin.
2. The ice maker itself.
3. The interconnecting refrigerant lines.
4. The remote condenser.
Additionally, there will be interconnecting wires
between the ice maker and the condenser. The
Scotsman remote condenser is powered from the
ice maker. The condenser must be located above
the ice maker, usually on the roof.
On the back of the cabinet is the following notice:
2. Using corner posts from the bin’s carton as a
cushion, lay the bin on its back.
3. Install the legs into the leg sockets.
4. Move bin back to an upright position.
5. Remove all material that is packed inside the bin.
Ice Maker:
1. Arrange for proper electric, water and drain.
REMOTE CONDENSER NOTICE
This unit has been designed for use with
Underwriter’s Laboratories Inc. listed forced air
cooled condensers, Scotsman models
RCE1001-32A or RCE1002-32A or ERC301. The
ice maker, condenser and connecting line sets are
factory charged with the correct amount of
refrigerant and therefore require no charging in the
field unless the system should be opened for
service repairs.
If other forced air cooled condensers are being
considered for use with this ice maker, prior
approval from Scotsman is necessary to insure
proper system operation.
Any alternate forced air cooled condenser being
considered must be listed with Underwriters
Laboratories, Inc. Certified with C.S.A. and have a
minimum design pressure of 500 P.S.I.G.
CAUTION
A suitable ground path must be provided between
the remote condenser cabinet and the ice maker
cabinet if the condenser fan is powered from the
ice maker.
IMPORTANT
In order to prevent compressor damage due to
refrigerant migration, and to insure acceptable
start up, a crankcase heater has been installed on
the compressor. This heater is wired to operate at
all times. Upon initial start up and any time the unit
power supply is interrupted for more than one
hour, the machine should not be started for at
least 4 hours after the power supply has been
reconnected to the machine.
See instructions for the plumber and for the
electrician.
2. Position the ice storage bin in the selected
location which should have a minimum room
temperature of 50-degrees F. and maximum room
temperature of 100 degrees F.
3. Inspect the bin top mounting gasket which
should be flat, with no wrinkles, to provide a good
water seal when the cuber is installed on top of the
bin.
4. Install the modular cuber on top of the bin using
care to be sure a good seal is made between the
two cabinets, use of a mechanical lift is
recommended. Align the holes in the bottom back
of the cabinet to mate with the two mounting straps
on the top rear of the bin.
5. Use bolts and straps found in the hardware
package to secure the ice machine to the ice
storage bin.
When alignment and leveling are completed,
tighten the bolts to secure the mounting straps.
Remote Condenser:
A new condenser coil designed for the machine’s
capacity MUST be used. Because of the possibility
of mineral oil contamination, coils and line sets
that had been connected to R-12, R-502 or R-22
units MAY NOT BE CONNECTED TO THIS
SYSTEM. Doing so voids the refrigeration system
warranty.
January 1998

CME865R & CME1002R
FOR THE PLUMBER
Water Supply
The recommended water supply line is a 3/8-inch
O.D. tubing with a minimum operating pressure of
20 PSIG and a maximum of 80 PSIG.
Connect to cold water supply line with standard
plumbing fittings, with shut off valve installed in an
accessible place between the water supply and
the cuber. In some cases a plumber will be
required.
The drains to be installed must conform with the
local plumbing codes. Use only 3/4" rigid tubing.
The ice machine’s drain must be separate from the
bin’s drain. Both use 3/4" FPT fittings. Insulation of
the bin drain is recommended.
Install a vertical open vent on the drain line(s) high
point to ensure proper draining. The ideal drain
receptacle is a trapped and vented floor drain.
CONFORM TO ALL LOCAL CODES.
Drain Connections:
All drains are gravity type and must have a
minimum of 1/4 inch per foot fall on horizontal
runs.

FOR THE INSTALLER: Remote Condenser
Locate the condenser as near as possible to the
interior location of the ice maker.
Location of the condenser is limited by the
specific length of pre-charged refrigerant tubing
supplied for the application. The pre-charged
tubing connects the ice maker to the remote
condenser. The condenser must be above the ice
maker.
SCOTSMAN REMOTE
CONDENSER
Select the best available location, protecting the
condenser from extremes of dirt, dust, and sun.
Meet all applicable building codes.
Roof Attachment:
Install and attach the remote condenser unit 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.
Pre-charged Line Routing
CAUTION
Do not connect pre-charged tubing until all
routing and forming of the tubing is complete.
See the coupling instructions for connecting
instructions.
PRE-CHARGED
REFRIGERANT
LINE SET
1. Each set of precharged refrigerant lines
consists of a 3/8 inch diameter liquid line, and a
1/2 inch diameter discharge line. Both ends of
each line have quick connect couplings, one end
has access valves: that end goes to the ice maker.
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.
2. Have the roofing contractor cut a minimum hole
for the refrigerant lines of 1.75". Check local
codes, a separate hole may be required for the
electrical power to the condenser.
CAUTION
DO NOT KINK OR CRIMP REFRIGERANT
TUBING WHEN INSTALLING IT.
3. Route the refrigerant lines through the roof
opening.
Any excess tubing MUST be retained within the
building.
4. Spiral any excess length of pre charged tubing
inside the building. Use a horizontal spiral (as
illustrated) to avoid any traps in the lines.
Note: Actual spiral need not be as tight as shown.
5. Have the roofing contractor seal the holes in the
roof per local codes.
Note: Only a holding charge is in the precharged
line set.
Follow straight line routing whenever possible.

CME865R & CME1002R
FOR THE INSTALLER: Coupling Instructions
CAUTION
The couplings on the sets of precharged lines are
self sealing when installed properly. Carefully
follow the instructions:
1. Remove the protector caps and plugs. Wipe the
seats and threaded surfaces with a clean cloth to
be certain that no foreign matter remains on them.
2. Lubricate the inside of the couplings, especially
the O-Rings with refrigerant oil.
• The 3/8 inch liquid line (schrader valve end)
goes to the remote condenser fitting marked
“liquid line”.
• The other end of the liquid line goes to the ice
maker fitting marked “liquid line.”
• The 1/2 inch discharge line (schrader valve
end) goes to the remote condenser fitting
marked “discharge line”.
• The other end of the discharge line goes to the
ice maker fitting marked “discharge line”.
3. Begin tightening the couplings together by
hand, then using two wrenches (it is important that
ONLY the nut on the precharged lines be turned,
the other parts of the couplings must NOT be
allowed to turn or the process will tear out the
diaphragms and they will be loose in the
refrigeration system) tighten the coupling until it
bottoms out or a definite increase in resistance is
felt.
ONLY TURN NUT ON
TUBING KIT, HOLD
TUBING STATIONARY
USE TWO
WRENCHES
4. Using a marker or pen, mark a line lengthwise
from the coupling union nut to the bulkhead. Then
tighten the coupling and additional 1/4 turn. As the
nut turns, the line will show when 1/4 turn is made.
5. After all connections are made, and after the
king valve has been opened, check the couplings
for leaks.

FOR THE ELECTRICIAN: Electrical Connections
See the NAMEPLATE for current requirements to
determine wire size to be used for electrical
hookup. The cuber requires a solid chassis to
chassis earth ground wire. See Wiring Diagram.
Be certain the cuber is connected to its own
electrical circuit and individually fused. Voltage
variation should not exceed ten percent of the
nameplate rating, even under starting conditions.
Low voltages can cause erratic operation and may
be responsible for serious damage to the ice
maker.
Electrical connections are made at the rear of the
ice maker, inside the junction box.
CAUTION
Do not switch the ice maker on at this time, make
certain the master and compressor switches are
OFF when power is connected to the ice maker.
Power must be connected to the ice maker long
enough in advance of start up to allow the
crankcase heater to warm the compressor,
usually about 12 hours.
Scotsman Condenser:
Separate electrical connections are made from the
ice maker to the condenser, as there is line power
interconnecting the ice maker to the condenser.
All external wiring should conform to the
national, state and local electrical code
requirements. Usually an electrical permit and
services of a licensed electrician will be
required.

10. Observe water fill cycle: The water pump will
be operating and the water inlet solenoid valve will
OPEN. Incoming water flows from the valve
through the tubing, the reservoir fills and excess
water drains out the machine drain.
At the end of the harvest cycle, the water inlet
solenoid valve will close and the water fill cycle is
complete. If the reservoir is not full, turn the shaft
of the timer clockwise into a new harvest cycle;
this opens the water valve again.
The water pump pumps water up to the water
distributor at the top of each evaporator plate,
where water is uniformly dispensed, cascades
down both sides of each evaporator plate and
drains back into the reservoir for recirculation.
11. Check that the water cascades down over the
cube molds and into the reservoir. Note: some
spray is normal when the machine is new.
12. When the reservoir is full, move the
compressor ON-OFF switch, to the ON position.

13. Observe the first freezing cycle: Feel the metal
parts of the evaporator plate; they should feel cold,
and very shortly ice will begin to form. The tubing
will become frosted at the top of the evaporator
plate. Freezing time will be longer than average for
the first cycle. Average complete cycle time is
about 13 - 16 minutes.

INITIAL START UP
14. Check CUBE SIZE
CUBES (ACTUAL SIZE)
The dimensions of the cubes are fixed by the size
and shape of the molds on the evaporator plate,
except that the thickness of the cube MAY need to
be adjusted at start up. There is only one size of
cube that is correct; adjusting the cube size control
to that size of cube will allow the ice maker to
produce ice at its most efficient size. The correct
size cubes will be fully formed at the edges; will
harvest off of the evaporators beginning with
individual cubes at the top of the evaporator, then
vertical strips for the balance; and will appear
similar to the illustration for “Correct Size Cube”.

To produce SMALLER sized ice cubes:
Locate cube size control knob, in the front of the
control box. Rotate this knob one eighth of a turn
counter clockwise. Observe size of the ice cubes
in the next ice cube harvest and adjust again if
needed, until the correct ice cube is achieved.

CUBE
To produce LARGER ice cubes:
Locate cube size control on the front of the control
box. Rotate the knob one eighth of a turn
clockwise. Observe size of ice cubes in the next
cube harvest and adjust again until correct the ice
cube size is achieved.
Note: Optimum performance will be achieved when
the ice machine is adjusted to produce this size and
shape of cube. The typical batch weight at this
setting is between 8.25 and 9 pounds.
15. Check harvest time. The machine must harvest
all of the cubes before returning to a freeze cycle.
Increase the harvest time if there is less than 15
seconds of harvest time after the last cube has
fallen into the bin.
Decrease the harvest time if there is much more
than 15 seconds of harvest time after the last cube
has fallen into the bin. Note: Harvest time is
dependent upon the water and air temperatures at
the ice machine. Do not adjust harvest time too
short, as this will cause a freeze up.

3. Hold a flat object about the size of this service
manual over the ice level sensor socket.
16. Check ICE BIN LEVEL CONTROL
The amount of ice maintained in the bin is
adjustable. The normal setting is “full”. If desired,
the machine may be adjusted to shut off the
machine when the bin is only partially full.
4. The ice machine should turn off at the end of the
harvest cycle.

ADJUSTMENTS
Adjustment Of The Timer & Switch Assembly
One complete revolution of the cam on the timer
represents eight minutes. If left as factory set, four
and one-half minutes comprise the freezing cycle
portion during cam rotation, and the final three and
one-half minutes is the defrost/harvest cycle.
Rotating the shaft of the timer cam clockwise will
put the ice machine in the freeze or harvest cycle.

3. Replace the control box cover and front panel.
It. is important that the length of the harvest cycle
allow enough time for all the ice cubes to fall from
the evaporator. Too short of a time will cause the
evaporator to freeze up and stop harvesting ice.
Too much time wastes ice making capacity, energy
and water. Adjustment of the harvest cycle may
require an adjustment of the cube size control.
Adjust Bin Ice Level
1. Locate ice level control switch.
2. Move switch to the desired position.
SET SCREW
3. To test, wait until the ice machine is near the
end of a “harvest” cycle, if there is ice in the bin
higher than the position the ice level control is set
for, the ice machine will turn OFF at the end of the
harvest cycle. If no ice in the bin, test again as
described under, “To Test The Ice Level Setting”.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Compressor Contactor
Hot Gas Solenoid Valve
The compressor contactor carries the compressor
line current. The contactor is wired so any control
in the pilot circuit, such as the bin control, and high
pressure controls, etc., will cause the contactor
holding coil to be de energized, when the control
contact OPENS, thereby breaking the circuit to the
compressor.
The hot gas solenoid valve opens only during the
harvest cycle. When it opens, it diverts the hot
discharge gases so that they flow directly into the
evaporator plates, by-passing the condenser and
thermostatic expansion valve. The hot gases warm
the evaporators, releasing the ice cubes from the
ice cube molds. The hot gas solenoid valve is
installed in a branch of the discharge line from the
compressor, and when the timer switches the ice
machine into the harvest cycle, the energized
solenoid coil lifts the valve stem within the valve
body, allowing the hot discharge gas to be diverted
to the evaporators.
Cube Size Control
This reverse acting (closes on temperature fall)
thermostat determines how long the freezing cycle
will be. The cube size control closes its contacts
when the evaporator cools to the set temperature,
starting the timer. A variation in heat load (either
ambient air or incoming water temperature) will
affect the efficiency of the refrigeration system, and
that will vary the length of time it takes the
evaporators to cool to the temperature at which the
cube size control is set to close, which, in turn, will
affect the overall cycle time. See CUBE SIZE
ADJUSTMENT BEFORE attempting to adjust the
control.
High Temperature Cut Out
This temperature sensor is located next to the hot
gas valve, on the outlet side.
During normal operation, it does not affect the ice
machine, but it will shut the machine off if the hot
gas line overheats. It is an automatic reset.
Relay
The multi-function, three pole, double throw, relay
plugs into a socket on the printed circuit board in
the control box. The relay functions in part to
by-pass the bin control during the harvest and
freeze cycles, preventing the ice maker from
shutting off in the middle of a cycle. The bypass
action allows only complete freeze and harvest
cycles; the only time that the ice maker can shut
off on bin control is as the end of the harvest cycle.
Timer - Timer & Switch Assembly
The timer begins to turn when activated by the
cube size control. The outer surface, or large
diameter lobe of the timer cam, determines the
length of time for finish freezing of the ice cubes,
while the inner surface, or small diameter lobe,
determines length of the harvest cycle. The
single-pole, double throw micro switch on the timer
controls the power to the plug in relay coil, making
it either the freezing or harvest cycle. The micro
switch is actuated by a cam assembly directly
connected to the timer motor. The timer cam can
be adjusted to vary the defrost time, as required.
One complete rotation of the cam will take eight
minutes. Harvest is preset at 2 and a quarter
minutes.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Ice Level Control
This electronic control uses sound waves to
measure the distance between the bottom of the
ice machine and the top of the ice in the bin. It is
designed to control the machines ice production to
maintain that distance.
The control is adjustable so that the ice machine
will maintain a certain height of ice. It will not fill
any closer to the ice machine than 8", and will not
work if the distance to the bottom of the bin is
greater than 8 feet.
Because it uses sound waves, a slight “ticking”
sound can be heard coming from the bottom of the
machine.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Electric Water Inlet Valve
Reservoir
The water inlet solenoid valve fills the reservoir
assembly with water. Excess water overflows out
the overflow standpipe located at the back of the
reservoir. This action fills and rinses the reservoir
during each harvest cycle. The flow rate is .75
g.p.m.
The reservoir, located below the evaporators,
stores the inlet water charge, and collects the
water that flows over the evaporator plates.
Water Distribution System
High Pressure Safety Control
This is a manual reset control that shuts down the
ice maker, should the discharge pressure ever
reach 450 PSIG.
The water distribution system evenly supplies
water to all cells of the evaporator plates. The
water pump pumps water from the reservoir up the
vertical tygon tube to the tee. From there water is
channeled through the water manifold to the water
distributors, above each evaporator plate, and
from six holes within each distributor, water flows
to the cells of each side of the evaporator plates.
Gravity flow returns the unfrozen excess portion of
water to the reservoir for recirculation.

FREEZING CYCLE OPERATION
Water from the sump assembly is pumped to the
water distributor system at the top of each
evaporator plate. From the water distributor the
water cascades by gravity over all cells of the plate
and to the sump assembly below.
At the beginning of the freezing cycle the water
pump, fan motor and compressor have power. The
water pump operates continuously, through both
the freezing cycle and the harvest cycle.
During the freezing cycle, the hot gas solenoid
valve and the water inlet solenoid valve are
CLOSED. When the ice cubes are partially
formed, the cube size control will CLOSE. This will
complete an electrical circuit to the timer motor.
The timer will keep the ice maker operating in the
freezing cycle for a selected length of time. This
will give the ice cubes time to fully form. After that
selected length of time, the timer will switch the ice
maker into the harvest cycle, through the contacts
of the timer assembly micro switch.
Low Temperature Freeze:
When the outside air temperature is
low, the Head Pressure Regulator will
close off the liquid line to the receiver,
causing liquid refrigerant to back up
into the condenser until the head
pressure builds up to 220 PSIG. While
this is occurring, the head pressure
regulator passes discharge gas into
the receiver to keep the refrigerant
flowing.

HARVEST CYCLE - HOT GAS BYPASS
When the timer switches the ice maker into the
harvest cycle, high pressure, high temperature
refrigerant gas being discharged from the
compressor is diverted from the condenser
through the hot gas solenoid valve into each
evaporator plate. During this cycle, the refrigerant
bypasses the condenser. In the electrical circuit,
both the compressor and the water pump are
operating and the hot gas solenoid valve is
energized and OPEN and the water inlet solenoid
valve is OPEN.
The finished ice cubes are released from the sides
of each evaporator plate by the warming effect of
the hot gas condensing in each evaporator plate
and the water cascading over the ice cubes. The
released ice cubes drop into the ice storage bin
below. At the end of the harvest cycle, the timer
cam will push the actuator arm to the micro switch
IN. If the ice level control is still CLOSED, a whole
new cycle will begin. If the ice level control is
OPEN, the ice maker will begin to shut OFF.

• Refrigerant should not be added except as a way to determine the

proper operation of the product. If the system was low on refrigerant,
42

132
there is a leak, and it must be found and repaired.

LIQUID CHARGING
Instructions for R-404A
In preparation for charging, the low side hose
should have a sight glass, and/or a restrictor
device (such as a "Charge Faster") installed in it
for metering liquid into the low side of the system.
The discharge hose should be connected to the
receiver’s "king" valve for faster recovery and
recharging.
1. After a thorough evacuation to at least 200
microns, shut off the manifold valves and switch
off the vacuum pump.
2. Place a drum of R-404A onto an electronic
scale.
3. Attach the charging hose to the drum.
4. Open the valve on the drum and purge the
charging hose.
5. Zero out the scale.
6. Shut the low side access valve at the ice
machine.
7. Open the discharge manifold valve full open.
8. Watch the scale, when the correct charge is
shown, shut the manifold valve.
Note: If all of the charge will not "go in" the
discharge side:
A. Shut the discharge access valve at the ice
machine.

B. Switch the machine on.
C. Open the low side access valve at the ice
machine.
D. Open the low side manifold valve and observe
the sight glass to be certain that only gas is flowing
into the system.
