Before Using Your Ice Maker
Remove all exterior and interior packing materials.
Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
• 1 Ice Bucket
• 1 Plastic Scoop
• 25 ft. hose
• 1 instruction manual
Before connecting the ice maker to the power source, let it stand upright for
approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the
cooling system from handling during transportation.
Clean the interior surface and ice bucket with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installation Of Your Ice Maker
• This appliance is designed to be recessed or built-in (fully recessed) or
• Place your ice maker on a flat surface that is strong enough to support the unit
when fully loaded.
• Level your ice maker by adjusting the legs at the front of the unit.
• Do not place the unit in a moist place. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost
to form quickly on the evaporator, requiring more frequent defrosting of the
• Locate the ice maker away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater,
radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may
increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also
cause the ice maker not to perform properly.
• Position appliance to allow airflow through the front grill (see
Connecting the Water Supply

Initial Start-Up Operation
1. Make sure the unit is properly installed by a licensed plumber.
2. Make sure the On/Off switch is in the “OFF” position.
3. Plug the appliance into a standard/grounded electrical outlet.
4. Place the On/Off switch in the “ON” position.
5. Make sure the water supply is on. As soon as the inner mechanism of the ice maker
reaches the proper temperature, the ice maker mold will fill with water.
6. The first ice cubes may be small, because of air initially in the water line. Later ice
cubes will be of standard crescent mood type and size.
7. Approximate time for the first cycle is 30-40 minutes.
8. Each cycle takes approximately 140 ML of water; you should have a full ice bucket
after 11 hours.
IMPORTANT: Discard all ice cubes made during the first 3 hours of operation.
Ice Maker General Operation
• When the ice bucket is full, the ice making mechanism will
automatically shut off. However, the system will continue to cool and
maintain the cube supply as needed.
• Ice delivery may be interrupted by raising the metal arm into an
upright position (see SKETCH 2)
• If the ice maker is not used regularly, it is recommended that the ice
bucket be emptied periodically to ensure ice freshness.
• Sometimes the cubes may appear cloudy. This is not cause for
concern and is not related to the taste of your ice cubes chemical
make-up of the water.

Cleaning Your Ice Maker
• Turn the control to "OFF", unplug the appliance, and remove the ice bucket.
• Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution
should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
• Wash the ice bucket with a mild detergent solution.
• Wash the outside of the ice maker with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse
well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
• The condenser coils should be vacuumed when they become dusty or dirty. Keep front
grill free of dust and lint to permit free airflow.
• WARNING: Failure to unplug the ice maker before cleaning could result in electrical
shock or personal injury.
Defrosting Your Ice Maker
Ice maker should be defrosted approximately every 4-6 weeks or when frost on the ice
maker is excessive (¼” thick or thicker). To defrost, turn the unit off, remove ice cubes,
and keep door open at least two inches. You may want to put a towel down to soak up any
water drainage caused by defrosting the unit.
Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your ice maker if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If
the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps
to disconnect your appliance.
Vacation Time/Storage
• Shut off the water supply at the main water valve.
• Disconnect the water supply line from valve.
• Allow unit to run for an hour or two until all remaining ice cubes have been ejected.
• Disconnect unit from main power source.
• Dry out excess water from ice maker interior.
• Leave the door open at least two inches.
Moving Your Ice Maker
• Remove any remaining ice.
• Securely tape down all loose items remaining inside your ice maker.
• Tape the door shut.
• Be sure the ice maker stays secure in an upright position during transportation. Also,
protect outside of ice maker with a blanket or similar item as needed.
Energy Saving Tips
• Locate your ice maker in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing
appliances or heating ducts and out of direct sunlight.
• Minimize the length and frequency of opening the ice maker door.
