Installing the Ice Maker

The ice maker should be installed by a licensed plumber to be in accordance with local electrical and plumbing code requirements.

Before you plug the ice maker in to a power supply, be sure to let it stand upright for at least 24 hours to allow the compressor’s oils to settle.

Unpacking the Ice Maker

WARNING: Use two more people to move and install the ice maker. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.

Carefully remove the packaging materials. Remove any shipping tape and glue from your ice maker before using. Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your icemaker. IMPORTANT: Do not remove any safety, warning, or product information labels from your ice maker.

Types of Installation

This ice maker has been designed for free-standing, recessed, or built-in installation. In every case, there must be adequate ventilation and access for service.

Free-standing installation:

A free-standing installation will allow you to install the icemaker in any place you desire provided you have access to a water supply and a drain. You must follow the stated instructions for electrical requirements, water supply and drain, and leveling the icemaker.

Recessed installation:

A recessed installation will allow you to install the ice maker under a counter or in a kitchen cabinet provided the required clearance space around the ice maker is followed. This installation has the same requirements as a built-in installation.

Built-in installation:

It is necessary to allow adequate ventilation space around the unit (make sure there is at least some ventilation room for the back of the unit). The following additional items must be observed.

1.Place the ice maker in front of the installation location. Remove the feet and place the unit flat on the floor or on a platform depending on your installation requirements.

2.The water supply pipe must be plumbed before connecting to the ice maker. Install the drain line into your drain.

3.Turn on main water supply and tap. Check for water supply connection leaks. Tighten any connections (including connections at the tie-in).

4.If the electrical outlet for the ice maker is behind the cabinet, plug in the ice maker.

5.Push the ice maker into position.

6.Seal all around the cabinet to the floor with an approved caulking compound.

3

Installation Clearance Requirements

*This icemaker should be installed by a licensed plumber only.

*To ensure proper service access and ventilation, allow more 4” clearance at rear, and 1/2” at top and 1/2” at sides. The installation should allow the icemaker to be pulled forward for servicing if necessary.

*When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the recommended spacing dimensions shown. Place electrical and water supplies and drain fixtures in the recommended locations as shown.

*Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F and below 90°F.This unit MUST be installed in an area protected from the elements, e.g., wind, rain, water spray or drips.

*The icemaker should not be located next to ovens, grills or other high heat resources.

*The ice maker requires a continuous water supply with a minimum pressure of 0.05Mpa and a static pressure not to exceed 0.8Mpa. The temperature of the water feeding into the ice maker should be between 41°F and 77°F for proper operation. The ambient operational temperature should be between 55°F and 90°F. Operation outside these temperatures may result in lowered production or other adverse effects.

Electrical Requirements

Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.

Never remove the grounding prong from the plug.

Never use an adapter. Never use an extension cord.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire, electrical shock, or death

Before you move your icemaker into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection:

A standard electrical supply (115 V, 60Hz.), 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 icemaker, be provided. Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.

The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amps.

Recommended grounding method

For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. It is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating 3-pronged and 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.

5

Water Supply Connections

The water supply should be ready at the point of installation. The water supply pressure should be a minimum of 20 psig with a static pressure not more than 80 psig. (A wall outlet directly behind the ice maker will make installation easier.)

IMPORTANT:

1.All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.

2.Make certain that the pipes are not pinched or kinked or damaged during installation.

3.Check for leaks after connection.

Tools required: ½ in. open-end wrench, Phillips screwdriver

Connecting the water line:

1.Turn off main water supply. Turn on nearest faucet long enough to clear line of water.

2.Find a ½ in. to ¾ in. vertical cold water pipe near the installation location. The distance should be less than 9 feet. The water supply hose provided with the ice maker is about 9 feet long.

3.A shut-off valve must be installed to the main water supply. If the water pipe has a plain piece of copper tubing, attach a ¼” O.D. compression union to the tubing and remove the nut.

4.Connect nuts of the water supply hose to tap and water inlet valve. Tighten firmly by hand, then one-half turn with wrench.

5.Turn on main water supply and tap. Check for water supply connection leaks. Tighten every connection (including connections at the water inlet).

IMPORTANT: When you connect the water supply hose, pay attention to the indications of “Water inlet” on the machine.

• In general, it is always a good idea to filter the water. A water filter can remove taste and odors as well as particles. Where water is very hard, softened water may result in white, mushy cubes that stick together.

Deionized water is not recommended.

Drain

NOTE: There is a drain line on the ice maker. Please drain water to your drain through the drain line provided with ice maker.

1.Locate the floor drain near the ice maker. The distance should be less than 4.5 feet since the length of the long drain hose provided with the ice maker is about 4.5 feet.

2.Find the drain hose on the back of ice maker, then insert the other side of the hose into the drain line.

3.All horizontal runs of drain lines must have a fall of 1/4” per foot. An air gap will likely be required between the ice maker drain hose and the drain/waste receptacle. A stand pipe with a trap below it would be acceptable for the drain/waste receptacle. A floor drain is also acceptable.

4.Pour 1 gallon of water into the ice storage bin to check for proper

drainage.

Note: a condensate pump can allow for installation further from your drain. Consult your plumber for advice.

OPERATION

Final Check List before Operation

1.Have all packing materials and tape been removed from the interior and exterior of the ice maker?

2.Did you clean the ice storage bin?

3.Have the installation instructions been followed, including connecting the machine to water and electricity? Does the unit have proper drainage?

4.Has the machine been leveled?

5.Is the ice maker in a site where the ambient temperature is between 55º F and 90ºF and the water temperature between 41º F and 77º F all year round?

6.Has the water supply pressure been checked to ensure a minimum of

20psig with a static pressure not to exceed 80 psig?

7.Is there a clearance of at least 4” at the rear, 1/2” at the top and 1/2” at the sides for proper air circulation?

8.Has the power supply voltage been checked or tested against the nameplate rating? And has proper grounding been installed for the ice maker?

9.Is the ice maker plugged in?

10.Have you turned on the main water supply and the tap?

11.Have you checked for leaks at all water supply connectionsand at the drain?

Operating Method

1.Turn on the water tap, let the water trough fill, then turn the power switch on the front panel to the ON position. The ice maker will start working automatically.

2.After the first feeding of water, the machine will automatically go to the ice making stage, and the sound of spraying water will be heard.

3.Ice will be harvested to the ice storage bin. When the storage bin is filled to the point that the ice-full sensor is covered, the ice maker will automatically stop working. The machine will restart making ice once the storage bin is less than full.

4.Excess water will flow through the drain outlet at the back of the machine and empty into the floor drain.

IMPORTANT:

Although the unit has been tested and cleaned at the factory, due to long-term transit and storage, the first batch of cubes must be discarded.

Never turn the water supply tap off when the ice maker is working.

Never touch the evaporator when the machine is running.

Except to take ice from the unit, keep the door closed to reduce melting and insure proper ice formation.

7

How the machine Makes Ice

Turn the power switch to the ON position. The machine will automatically start the ice making stage. There are two distinct cycles: freeze and harvest. During the freeze cycle, water is sprayed against the evaporator surface. In the harvest cycle, the ice is released and water enters the machine. A complete cycle can take 20 to 40 minutes, depending on temperature and operating conditions.

Freeze: During the freeze cycle the compressor is pumping refrigerant, the fan motor is blowing air, and the water pump is circulating water. When the batch of ice has been fully formed, the ice maker stops the freeze cycle and begins the harvest cycle.

Harvest: During the harvest cycle the compressor is still operating, but the water pump has stopped. Two other components have been energized: the hot gas valve and the water inlet valve. These two valves open and warm up the freezing surface, allowing the cubes to fall into the bin. The freeze cycle will restart when all the cubes have been harvested.

How the machine uses the water

The ice maker begins with a fixed charge of water that is contained in the water sump. As the water is sprayed against the freezing evaporator surface, the portion of water that does not contain mineral impurities will freeze and stick to the ice cube molds. The water containing impurities falls back into the water sump. Gradually, during the freezing portion of the ice-making cycle, the water in the sump will become highly concentrated with mineral impurities. During the harvest cycle, fresh water flows into the machine to dilute the bin water and rinse the concentrated minerals down the drain.

Normal Sounds

Your new icemaker may make sounds that are not familiar to you. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces like the floor, walls 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.

Ratting noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or the water line, Items stored on top of the icemaker can also make noises.

The high efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or highpitched sound.

Water running from the evaporator to the water bin may make a splashing sound.

You will hear a swooshing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water sump for each cycle.

As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your icemaker.

You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.

During the harvest cycle, you may hear the of ice cubes falling into the ice storing bin.

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.

Preparing the Icemaker for Long Storage

If the ice maker will not be used for a long time, or is to be moved to another place, it will be necessary to drain the system of water.

1.Shut off the water supply at the main water source.

2.Disconnect the water supply line from the water inlet.

3.Disconnect the drain pipe to the drain line or floor drain.

4.Allow the ice maker to run for an hour or more until all remaining ice cubes have been ejected from the ice maker assembly.

5.Shut off the electric supply at the main electrical power source.

6.Screw off the nut of the water drain hole at the back of the machine, drain out water residue completely (do not loosen or screw off the nut at other times), then tighten the nut after finishing.

7.Drop the door open to allow for air circulation and prevent mold and mildew.

8.Leave the water supply line and power cord disconnected until ready to reuse.

IMPORTANT:

Do not touch the power plug when your hands are wet.

Never unplug the unit by pulling on the plug.

9

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

The icemaker must be thoroughly cleaned if it has been left unused for a long time. Follow carefully any instructions provided for cleaning or use of sanitizing solution. Do not leave any solution inside the icemaker after cleaning.

Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will ensure efficiency, top performance, and long life. The maintenance intervals listed are based on normal conditions. You may want to shorten the intervals if you have pets, or there are other special considerations.

Note: Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice: objects like wine or beer bottles are not only unsanitary, but the labels may slip off and plug up the drain.

What should be kept clean

There are 5 things to keep clean:

1.The exterior.

2.The interior.

3.The condenser

4.Water distribution tube

5.The ice-making system

Exterior Cleaning

The door and cabinet may be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water solution such as 1 oz of dishwashing liquid mixed with 2 gallons of warm water. Do not use solvent based or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft sponge and rinse with clean water. Wipe with a soft clean towel to prevent water spotting. If the door panel is stainless finish, it can discolor when exposed to chlorine gas and moisture. Clean stainless finish with a cloth dampened with a mild detergent and warm water solution. Never use an abrasive cleaning agent.

EdgeStar Full Size Ice Maker

10

Interior Cleaning

The ice storage bin should be sanitized occasionally. Clean the water trough before the ice maker is used for the first time and reused after stopping for an extended period of time. It is usually convenient to sanitize the trough after the ice making system has been cleaned and the ice storage bin is empty.

1.Disconnect power to the unit.

2.Open the door and with a clean cloth wipe down the interior of the unit with a sanitizing solution made of 1 ounce of household bleach and 2 gallons of hot water (95º to 115ºF).

3.Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

4.Reconnect power to the unit.

The ice scoop should be washed regularly. Wash it just like any other utensil.

DO NOT use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on the interior. These cleaners may transmit taste to the ice cubes, or damage or discolor the interior.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The sprinkler should only be cleaned when you find that some of the ice cubes are improperly shaped during ice making. Cleaning the ice making system should follow cleaning of the sprinkler.

1. Disconnect power to the unit and open the door.

2. Take out the row of flake covers by snapping one end up and pulling forward.

3. Remove the slideway from the water sump.

4. Find the sprinkler arm and raise it. Disconnect it from the water tube which is connected at the back of the sprinkler arm.

5.A de-scaling solution can be prepared in a plastic basin with NuCalgon Nickel-Safe Ice Machine Cleaner. Mix 4 ounces of the ice machine cleaner per gallon of warm water.

Remove the sprinkler arm from the interior. Thoroughly clean the sprinkler arm by soaking it in the basin filled with the de-scaling solution until it is free of any deposit; use a soft brush to remove any thick or stubborn residue and to help the dissolving action. Rinse under a stream of tap water.

6.Wipe down the interior of the water sump with the de-scaling solution and warm water. Rinse thoroughly with clear water.

7.Reassemble the sprinkler arm, slideway and row of flake covers.

8.Perform steps 1, 3, 6, 7 and 8 of the Ice Making System Cleaning procedure below.

EdgeStar Full Size Ice Maker

12

Condenser Cleaning

A dirty or clogged condenser prevents proper airflow, reduces ice making capacity, and causes higher than recommended operating temperatures that may lead to component failure. Have the condenser cleaned at least once every six months.

1.Unplug the ice maker or disconnect power.

2.Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the front cover and gently pull it off.

3.Locate the condenser filter. This can be lifted out and cleaned with a brush or flowing water.

4. Remove dirt and lint condenser fins and the unit compartment with a brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner.

5. Put back the filter and reassemble the front cover.

6. Plug in the icemaker or reconnect power.

DO NOT touch the condenser fins. They are sharp and can be damaged easily.

13

Ice-making system Cleaning

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 or how effective your filtration may be. 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.

1.Turn off the power to the ice maker. Keep the ice maker connected to the water supply and drain pipe.

2.Open the door and scoop out all of the ice cubes. Either discard them or save them in an ice chest or cooler.

3.Remove the 2 screws in the front cover and push forward to remove the front cover. Locate the control box. Notes: Do not use too much force, as the wire leads connected to the power switch can be inadvertently disconnected. Use care in the area of the control box. Do not expose it to moisture.

4.Turn on the power to the ice maker. Pour 8 oz. of nickel-safe ice machine cleaner solution into the water sump. Add 8 oz. of tap water. After about 5 minutes, press down the “Clean” button on the Control Box. The machine will run the Automatic Clean mode.

5.Allow 30 minutes for proper cleaning. After cleaning, shut off the power switch, and unscrew the nut of the water-draining hole on the rear of the unit. Drain off the waste water to some container, and then screw the nut on tightly when the waste water is fully drained off.

6.Repeat steps 4 and 5 (without Ice Maker Cleaning Solution) to rinse the ice making system 3 times.

NOTE: The use of the Ice Maker Cleaner Solution in the water sump during the rinse is not needed.

7.Prepare a sanitizing solution made of 1 ounce of household bleach and 2 gallons of hot water (95º to 115º F). Remove the flake covers and slideway from the water sump and wipe the entire bin inside and out, covering the entire surface of the walls.

8.Fill a spray bottle with the sanitizing solution and spray all corners and edges, making sure to cover all surfaces with the solution. Soak the flake covers and slideway in the solution and put back in place after drying.

9.Allow the solution to be in contact for at least 3 minutes, then dry.

10.Repeat step 6 to rinse the ice making system one more time.

11.Reassemble the front cover.

12.Turn on the power again. The machine will return to the regular ice making mode.

Notes on ice storage

 

 

 

The ice maker will automatically shut off when the ice bin is full. The ice

 

bin compartment is insulated, but not refrigerated and the ice in the bin

 

will slowly melt and go out the drain. Once enough of the ice has melted,

 

the ice maker will automatically start making more ice.
