Water Quality (ice making circuit)
Installing an ice machine near a source of yeast or
similar material can result in the need for more
frequent sanitation cleanings due to the tendency
of these materials to contaminate the machine.
Most water filters remove chlorine from the water
supply to the machine which contributes to this
situation. Testing has shown that using a filter that
does not remove chlorine, such as the Scotsman
Aqua Patrol, will greatly improve this situation.
Warranty Information
The warranty statement for this product is provided
separately from this manual. Refer to it for
applicable coverage. In general warranty covers
defects in material or workmanship. It does not
cover maintenance, corrections to installations, or
situations when the machine is operated in
circumstances that exceed the limitations printed
above.

Air, Water or Remote User Manual
Location:
While the machine will operate satisfactorily within
the listed air and water temperature limits, it will
produce more ice when those temperatures are
nearer the lower limits. Avoid locations that are hot,
dusty, greasy or confined. Air cooled models need
plenty of room air to breathe. Air cooled models
must have at least six inches of space at the back
for air discharge; however, more space will allow
better performance.
Airflow
Air flows into the front of the cabinet and out the
back. The air filters are on the outside of the front
panel and are easily removed for cleaning.
Bin compatibility
All models have the same footprint: 22 inches wide
by 24 inches deep. Confirm available space when
replacing a prior model.

Do not reuse condenser coils contaminated with
mineral oil (used with R-502 for example). They will
cause compressor failure and will void the
warranty.
A headmaster is required for all remote condenser
systems. Prior condensers did not have a
headmaster. New head / prior condenser retrofits
can use headmaster kit KPFHM.
Use of non-Scotsman condensers requires
pre-approval from Scotsman Engineering.

• Calculated line set length maximum is 150.
5 feet x 6.6 = 33. 33 + 20 = 53. This location would
be acceptable
Calculation Formula:
Calculation Example 2:
• Drop = dd x 6.6 (dd = distance in feet)
• Rise = rd x 1.7 (rd = distance in feet)
• Horizontal Run = hd x 1 (hd = distance in
feet)
• Calculation: Drop(s) + Rise(s) + Horizontal
• Run = dd+rd+hd = Calculated Line Length
Configurations that do NOT meet these
requirements must receive prior written
authorization from Scotsman to maintain warranty.
The condenser is to be located 35 feet above and
then 100 feet away horizontally. 35 x 1.7 = 59.5.
59.5 +100 = 159.5. 159.5 is greater than the 150
maximum and is NOT acceptable.
Operating a machine with an unacceptable
configuration is misuse and will void the warranty.

For The Installer: Remote Condenser
Locate the condenser as near as possible to the
interior location of the ice machine. Allow it plenty
of space for air and cleaning: keep it a minimum of
two feet away from a wall or other rooftop unit.
Note: The location of the condenser relative to the
ice machine is LIMITED by the specification on the
prior page.

Precharged Line Routing - Remote Only
Do not connect the precharged tubing until all
routing and forming of the tubing is complete. See
the Coupling Instructions for final connections.
Caution: Do NOT kink the refrigerant tubing while
routing it.
1. Each set of pre-charged tubing lines contains a
3/8” diameter liquid line, and a 1/2” diameter
discharge line. Both ends of each line have quick
connect couplings.
3. Route the refrigerant tubes thru the roof opening.
Follow straight line routing whenever possible.
Excess tubing may EITHER be coiled up INSIDE
the building OR cut out prior to connection to the
ice maker and condenser.
Note: The openings in the building ceiling or wall,
listed in the next step, are the minimum sizes
recommended for passing the refrigerant lines
through.
If the excess tubing is cut out, after re-brazing the
tubing must be evacuated prior to connection to the
ice maker or condenser.
2. Have the roofing contractor cut a minimum hole
for the refrigerant lines of 2”. Check local codes, a
separate hole may be required for the electrical
power supply to the condenser.
If the excess tubing is to be coiled, spiral it
horizontally to avoid excess trapping in the lines.
5. Have the roofing contractor seal the holes in the
roof per local codes

that happens, there will be some resistance to
tightening the swivel nut.
These steps must be performed by an EPA
Certified Type II or higher technician.
Initial Connections
1. Remove the protector caps and plugs. Wipe the
seats and threaded surfaces with a clean cloth to
remove any possible foreign matter.
2. Lubricate the inside of the couplings, especially
the O-rings, with refrigerant oil. Oil packets are
supplied with Scotsman line sets.

The control that senses bin full and empty is a
photo-electric eye, therefore it must be kept clean
so it can “see”. At least twice a year, remove the
ice level sensors from the base of the ice chute,
and wipe the inside clean, as illustrated.
The ice machine senses water by a probe located
near the water reservoir. At least twice a year, the
probe should be wiped clean of mineral build-up.

What to do before calling for service
Normal Operation:
Ice
The machine will make either flaked or nugget ice,
depending upon the model. The ice will be
produced continuously until the bin is full. It is
normal for a few drops of water to occasionally fall
with the ice.
Heat
On remote models most heat is exhausted at the
remote condenser, the ice machine should not
generate significant heat. Water cooled models
also put most of the heat from ice making into the
discharge water. Air cooled models will generate
heat, and it will be discharged into the room.
Noise
Does not make ice
Auger motor overload
High discharge pressure.
Low refrigeration system pressure.
Controller self test failure.
Check the following:
1. Has the water supply to the ice machine or
building been shut off? If yes, the ice machine will
automatically restart within minutes after water
begins to flow to it.
2. Has power been shut off to the ice machine? If
yes, the ice machine will automatically restart when
power is restored.
3. Has someone shut the power off to the remote
condenser while the ice machine still had power? If
yes, the ice machine may need to be manually
reset.
The ice machine will make noise when it is in ice
making mode. The compressor and gear reducer
will produce sound. Air cooled models will add fan
noise. Some ice making noise could also occur.
To Manually Reset the machine.
These noises are all normal for this machine.
To Shut the Machine Off:
Reasons the machine might shut itself off:
Push and hold the Off button for 3 seconds or until
the machine stops.
• Push and release the Off button.
• Push and release the On button.
• Lack of water.
