Cleaning Before Use 14¹⁄₂" (36.8 cm) 34" (86.4 cm) Min. 34¹⁄₂" (87.6 cm) Max. After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of your ice maker before using it. See the cleaning instructions in the “Ice Maker Care” section. A 28¹⁄₂" (72.4 cm) 9" 3¹⁄₂" (22.9 cm) (8.9 cm) 24" (60.1 cm) B ■ ■ To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front side must be completely unobstructed. The ice maker may be closed-in on the top and three sides, but the installation should allow the ice maker to be pulled forward for servicing if necessary. Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet of ¹⁄₄" (6.35 mm) OD soft copper tubing with a shutoff valve and either a gravity-drain system or condensate pump to carry the water to an existing drain. Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F (13°C) and below 100°F (38°C). Best results are obtained between 70°F (21°C) and 90°F (32°C). 18" (45.7 cm) A. Recommended location for electrical and plumbing fixtures B. Floor level ■ Choose a location where the floor is even. It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of the ice maker by changing the height of the leveling legs. See the “Leveling” section. 3 Electrical Requirements WARNING NOTE: The reverse osmosis system must provide 1 gal. (3.8 L) of water per hour to the ice maker for proper ice maker operation. If a reverse osmosis system is desired, only a whole-house capacity reverse osmosis system, capable of maintaining the steady water supply required by the ice maker, is recommended. Faucet capacity reverse osmosis systems are not able to maintain the steady water supply required by the ice maker. If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa): ■ Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary. ■ Electrical Shock Hazard Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill after heavy usage. If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber. Do not remove ground prong. Leveling Do not use an adapter. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock. Before you move your ice maker into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection: A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply, properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice maker, be provided. Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain. IMPORTANT: If this product is connected to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) equipped outlet, nuisance tripping of the power supply may occur, resulting in loss of cooling. Ice quality may be affected. If nuisance tripping has occurred, and if the condition of the ice appears poor, dispose of it. Recommended grounding method The ice maker must be grounded. The ice maker is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug. The cord must be plugged into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-type wall receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to have a properly grounded, 3 prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. Water Supply Requirements It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work properly. Depending upon where you install the ice maker, you may need to make several adjustments to level it. You may also use the leveling legs to lower the height of the ice maker for undercounter installations. Tools needed: Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation. ■ 9" level ■ Adjustable wrench NOTE: It is easier to adjust the leveling legs if you have another person to assist you. 1. Move the ice maker to its final location. NOTE: If this is a built-in installation, move the ice maker as close as possible to the final location. 2. Place the level on top of the product to see if the ice maker is level from front to back and side to side. 3. Push up on the top front of the ice maker, and then locate the leveling screws that are on the bottom front of the ice maker. 4. Using an adjustable wrench, change the height of the legs as follows: ■ Turn the leveling leg to the right to lower that side of the ice maker. ■ Turn the leveling leg to the left to raise that side of the ice maker. NOTE: The ice maker should not wobble. Use shims to add stability when needed. A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber. Reverse Osmosis Water Supply IMPORTANT: ■ Reverse osmosis water filtration systems can be used only with ice maker installations that have a gravity drain. A reverse osmosis system is not recommended for ice makers that have a drain pump installed. ■ The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the ice maker needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa). If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa). 4 5. Push up on the top rear of the ice maker and locate the leveling legs that are on the bottom rear of the ice maker. 6. Follow the instructions in Step 4 to change the height of the legs. 7. Use the level to recheck the ice maker to see that it is even from front to back and side to side. If the ice maker is not level, repeat steps 2 to 5. If the ice maker is level, go to the “Connect Water Supply” section. Connect Water Supply Read all directions before you begin. IMPORTANT: ■ Plumbing shall be installed in accordance with the International Plumbing Code and any local codes and ordinances. ■ Use copper tubing or Whirlpool supply line, Part Number 8212547RP, and check for leaks. ■ Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain above freezing. Tools needed Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation: ■ Flat-blade screwdriver 4. Place the free end of the tubing into a container or sink, and turn on main water supply and flush out tubing until water is clear. Turn off shutoff valve on the water pipe. NOTE: Always drain the water line before making the final connection to the inlet of the water valve to avoid possible water valve malfunction. 5. Bend the copper tubing to meet the water line inlet which is located on the back of the ice maker cabinet as shown. Leave a coil of copper tubing to allow the ice maker to be pulled out of the cabinet or away from the wall for service. REAR VIEW ■ ⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" open-end wrenches or two adjustable wrenches A ■ ¹⁄₄" nut driver B NOTE: Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄₁₆" (4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.

Copper tubing 5 NOTES: ■ If the drain hose becomes twisted and water cannot drain, your ice maker will not work. Drain Connection Gravity Drain System ■ Connect the ice maker drain to your drain in accordance with all state and local codes and ordinances. If the ice maker is provided with a gravity drain system, follow these guidelines when installing drain lines. This will help keep water from flowing back into the ice maker storage bin and potentially flowing onto the floor, causing water damage. ■ Drain lines must have a minimum of ⁵⁄₈" (15.88 mm) inside diameter. ■ Drain lines must have a 1" drop per 48" (2.54 cm drop per 122 cm) of run or ¹⁄₄" drop per 12" (6.35 mm per 30.48 cm) of run and must not have low points where water can settle. ■ The floor drains must be large enough to accommodate drainage from all drains. ■ The ideal installation has a standpipe with a 1¹⁄₂" (3.81 cm) to 2" (5.08 cm) PVC drain reducer installed directly below the outlet of the drain tube as shown. You must maintain a 1" (2.54 cm) air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe. It may be desirable to insulate the drain line thoroughly up to the drain inlet. An Insulation Sleeve kit, Part Number W10365792, is available for purchase. Connecting the Drain After ensuring that the drain system is adequate, follow these steps to properly place the ice maker: WARNING Electrical Shock Hazard Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. IMPORTANT: A drain pump is necessary when a floor drain is not available. A Drain Pump kit, Part Number 1901, is available for purchase. SIDE VIEW Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter.

Style 1 - For gravity drain system, push the ice maker into position so that the ice maker drain tube is positioned over the PVC drain reducer. Style 2 - For drain pump system connect the drain pump outlet hose to the drain. See “Drain Pump System.” 3. Recheck the ice maker to be sure that it is level. See “Leveling.” 4. If it is required by your local sanitation code, seal the cabinet to the floor with an approved caulking compound after all water and electrical connections have been made. Normal Sounds Drain Pump System (on some models) IMPORTANT: ■ Connect the ice maker drain to your drain in accordance with the International Plumbing Code and any local codes and ordinances. ■ 6 The drain pump discharge line must terminate at an open sited drain. ■ Maximum rise 10 ft (3.1 m) ■ Maximum run 100 ft (30.5 m) Your new ice maker may make sounds that are not familiar to you. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces such as floors, walls and cabinets can make the sounds seem louder than they actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and what may be making them. ■ You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle. ■ Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or the water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises. ■ The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high pitched sound. ■ Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound. ■ Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound. ■ As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker. ■ You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan. ■ During the harvest cycle, you may hear a “thud” when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid. ■ When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice. 3. The water containing the rejected minerals is drained after each freezing cycle. 4. Fresh water enters the machine for the next ice making cycle. 5. Cubes fall into the storage bin. When the bin is full, the ice maker shuts off automatically and restarts when more ice is needed. The ice bin is not refrigerated, and some melting will occur. The amount of melting varies with room temperature. ICE MAKER USE NOTE: As the room and water temperatures vary, so will the amount of ice produced and stored. This means that higher operating temperatures result in reduced ice production. How Your Ice Maker Works When you first start your ice maker, the water pan will fill and the system will rinse itself before starting to make ice. The rinsing process takes about 5 minutes. Under normal operating conditions, the ice maker will cycle at preset temperatures. The ice level sensor located in the ice storage bin will monitor the ice levels. IMPORTANT: ■ If the water supply to the ice maker is turned off, be sure to set the ice maker control to OFF. ■ The ice maker is designed to make clear ice from the majority of water sources on a daily basis. If your results are unsatisfactory, your water may need to be filtered or treated. The Ice Making Process 1. Water is constantly circulated over a freezing plate. As the water freezes into ice, the minerals in the water are rejected. This produces a sheet of ice with a low mineral content. Using the Controls 1. To start ice production, press ON. 2. To stop ice maker operation, press OFF. NOTES: ■ Pressing the On/Off switch does not shut off power to the ice maker. ■ Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the first batch produced. Max Ice Mode Select the Max Ice feature when you have an upcoming need for a large amount of ice and the ice bin is low or empty. Max Ice mode will produce a greater quantity of ice in a 24-hour period. ■ Press and hold MAX ICE while the ice maker is on. The indicator light will illuminate. ■ 2. When the desired thickness is reached, the ice sheet is released and slides onto a cutter grid. The grid divides the sheet into individual cubes. Press and hold MAX ICE again to turn off the Max Ice feature. The indicator light will turn off. Service The service light indicates when service is needed. If the service light turns on, turn the ice maker off and back on. If the service light turns on again, call for service. Clean/Reset The Cleaning/Reset Status light will help you know when it is time to clean your ice maker. The light will change from green to yellow. This tells you it is almost time to clean your ice maker. It is recommended that you clean the ice maker when the status light changes to red OR ice production decreases significantly. To clean your ice maker, see “Ice Maker System” in the “Cleaning” section. 7 ICE MAKER CARE Cleaning The ice making system and the air cooled condenser need to be cleaned regularly for the ice maker to operate at peak efficiency and to avoid premature failure of system components. See the “Ice Maker System” and the “Condenser” sections. Exterior Surfaces Wash the exterior enamel surfaces and gaskets with warm water and mild soap or detergent. Wipe and dry. Regular use of a good household appliance cleaner and wax will help maintain the finish. Do not use abrasive cleaners on enamel surfaces as they may scratch the finish. For products with a stainless steel exterior, use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners. Do not use chlorine bleach on the stainless steel surfaces. 8. After the cleaning cycle is complete, remove the drain cap from the water pan. Look for any cleaning solution left in the water pan. If cleaning solution drains from the water pan, you should run the clean cycle again. Be sure to replace the drain cap securely on the water pan. If the drain cap is loose, water will empty from the water pan and you will have either thin ice or no ice. NOTE: Severe scale buildup may require repeated cleaning with a fresh quantity of cleaning solution. 9. Push the selector switch to ON to resume ice production. Condenser A dirty or clogged condenser: ■ Obstructs proper airflow. ■ Reduces ice making capacity. ■ Causes higher than recommended operating temperatures which may lead to component failure. Ice Maker System Minerals that are removed from water during the freezing cycle will eventually form a hard scaly deposit in the water system. Cleaning the system regularly helps remove the mineral scale buildup. How often you need to clean the system depends upon how hard your water is. With hard water of 15 to 20 grains/gal. (4 to 5 grains/liter), you may need to clean the system as often as every 6 months. NOTE: Use one 16 oz (473 mL) bottle of approved ice maker cleaner. To order, call 1-800-422-1230 and ask for Part Number 4396808. In Canada, call 1-800-807-6777. 1. Press selector switch to OFF. 2. Wait 5 to 10 minutes for the ice to fall into the storage bin. Remove all ice from the storage bin. 3. Unscrew the drain cap from the bottom of the water pan located inside the storage bin as shown. Allow the water to drain completely. 4. Replace the drain cap securely on the water pan. If the drain cap is loose, water will empty from the water pan and you will have either thin ice or no ice. 5. Read and follow all handling information on the cleaner bottle before completing the steps below. Use one 16 oz (473 mL) bottle of approved ice maker cleaner. 6.
