IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

FOLLOW THESE BASIC PRECAUTIONS TO

 

REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL

 

SHOCK, OR INJURY WHEN USING YOUR ICE

 

MAKER.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE ICE MAKER.

DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT.

CHILD ENTRAPMENT AND SUFFOCATION ARE NOT PROBLEMS OF THE PAST. JUNKED OR ABANDONED APPLIANCES ARE STILL DANGEROUS.

BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR ICE MAKER: TAKE OFF THE DOOR.

NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO OPERATE, PLAY WITH, OR CRAWL INSIDE THE APPLIANCE.

NEVER CLEAN ICE MAKER PARTS WITH FLAMMABLE FLUIDS. THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.

DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR ANY OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE. THE FUMES CAN CREATE A FIRE HAZARD OR EXPLOSION.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

¾BEFORE USING YOUR ICE MAKER

REMOVE THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR PACKING.

CHECK TO BE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING PARTS:

1 ICE BUCKET

1 PLASTIC SCOOP

1 HOSE, 25 FT.

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 WITH LUKEWARM WATER USING A SOFT CLOTH.

¾INSTALLATION OF YOUR ICE MAKER

THIS APPLIANCE IS DESIGNED TO VENT HOT AIR THROUGH THE FRONT VENT. THIS ALLOWS FOR INSTALLATION IN A RECESSED OR BUILT-IN APPLICATION, IF DESIRED.

PLACE YOUR ICE MAKER ON A LEVEL SURFACE THAT IS STRONG ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE ICE MAKER WHEN IT IS FULLY LOADED. REMEMBER THAT THE UNIT WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY HEAVIER ONCE IT IS OPERATIONAL AND FULLY LOADED. LEVEL YOUR ICE MAKER BY ADJUSTING THE LEGS AT THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER.

LOCATE THE ICE MAKER AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND SOURCES OF HEAT (STOVE, HEATER, RADIATOR, ETC.). DIRECT SUNLIGHT MAY AFFECT THE FINISH AND HEAT SOURCES MAY INCREASE ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION. EXTREME COLD AMBIENT TEMPERATURES MAY ALSO CAUSE THE ICE MAKER MALFUNCTION. THIS ICE MAKER IS DESIGNED FOR INSTALLATION INDOORS IN “ROOM TEMPERATURE” AMBIENT CONDITIONS.

AVOID LOCATING THE ICE MAKER IN MOIST/HUMID AREAS. TOO MUCH MOISTURE IN THE AIR WILL CAUSE FROST TO FORM QUICKLY ON THE EVAPORATOR REQUIRING FREQUENT DEFROSTING.

PLUG THE ICE MAKER INTO AN EXCLUSIVE PROPERLY INSTALLED GROUNDED WALL OUTLET. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD. ANY QUESTIONS CONCERNING POWER AND/OR GROUNDING SHOULD BE DIRECTED TOWARD A CERTIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

FIGURE 1

¾ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

WARNING

IMPROPER USE OF THE GROUNDED PLUG CAN RESULT IN THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. IF THE POWER CORD IS DAMAGED, HAVE IT REPLACED BY AN AUTHORIZED SERVICER.

THIS ICE MAKER SHOULD BE PROPERLY GROUNDED FOR YOUR SAFETY. THE POWER CORD OF THIS ICE MAKER IS EQUIPPED WITH A THREE-PRONG PLUG WHICH MATES WITH STANDARD THREE PRONG WALL OUTLETS TO MINIMIZE THE POSSIBILITY OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD GROUND PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD SUPPLIED.

DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD TO CONNECT POWER TO THE UNIT.

DO NOT USE A TWO-PRONG GROUNDING ADAPTER.

IF YOU ONLY HAVE A TWO-PRONG WALL RECEPTACLE, CONTACT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN TO HAVE IT REPLACED WITH A 3-PRONG RECEPTACLE IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE ELECTRICAL CODES.

THIS ICE MAKER REQUIRES A STANDARD 115 VOLTS A.C. 60HZ ELECTRICAL OUTLET WITH THREE-PRONG GROUND.

THE CORD SHOULD BE SECURED BEHIND THE ICE MAKER AND NOT LEFT EXPOSED OR LOOSE.

¾EXTENSION CORD

BECAUSE OF POTENTIAL SAFETY HAZARDS, THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH AN EXTENSION CORD. HOWEVER, IF YOU MUST USE AN EXTENSION CORD, USE ONLY A UL/CUL-LISTED, 3-WIRE GROUNDING TYPE APPLIANCE EXTENSION CORD WITH A GROUNDING TYPE PLUG AND OUTLET. THE ELECTRICAL RATING OF THE CORD MUST BE 115 VOLTS AND AT LEAST 10 AMPS.

¾CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY

WARNING

IMPROPER WATER LINE CONNECTION MAY RESULT IN FLOODING

YOU MUST USE A LICENSED PLUMBER

REVIEW STATE AND LOCAL PLUMBING CODES BEFORE INSTALLATION

• ALL THE NECESSARY HARDWARE IS NOT PROVIDED (AS THE PLUMBING FIXTURES AT THE INSTALLATION POINT MAY DIFFER) FOR INSTALLATION SO IT IS NECESSARY TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL LICENSED PLUMBER TO COMPLETE THE INSTALLATION.

• CONNECT TUBING (SUPPLIED WITH UNIT) TO THE NEAREST COLD WATER SOURCE. CONNECT SUFFICIENT TUBING TO THE UNIT TO ALLOW THE

APPLIANCE TO BE MOVED FREELY FOR CLEANING AND SERVICE.

ALSO MAKE SURE THAT THE TUBING IS NOT PINCHED OR DAMAGED DURING TRANSPORTATION/INSTALLATION.

• POSITION UNIT TO ALLOW FREE AIRFLOW THROUGH THE FRONT GRILL (SEE FIGURE 1).

• WIPE OUT INSIDE OF UNIT AND ICE BUCKET WITH A DAMP CLOTH.

¾REVERSING THE DOOR SWING OF YOUR ICE MAKER

THIS APPLIANCE HAS THE CAPABILITY OF THE DOOR OPENING FROM EITHER THE LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE. THE UNIT IS DELIVERED TO YOU WITH THE DOOR OPENING FROM THE LEFT SIDE (HINGED ON THE RIGHT). TO REVERSE THE OPENING DIRECTION, PLEASE CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR DIRECTIONS.

OPERATING YOUR ICE MAKER

¾INITIAL START-UP OPERATION

1.MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS PROPERLY INSTALLED BY A LICENCED PLUMBER.

2.MAKE SURE THE ON-OFF SWITCH IS IN THE “OFF” POSITION.

3.PLUG THE APPLIANCE INTO AN 115V POLARIZED AND GROUNDED WALL 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 REACHES THE PROPER TEMPERATURE, THE ICEMAKER COMPONENT WILL FILL THE MOLD WITH WATER.

6.THE FIRST CUBES MAY BE SMALL BECAUSE OF AIR IN THE WATER LINE. LATER CUBES WILL BE OF STANDARD CRESCENT MOON TYPE SIZE AND SHAPE.

7.THE APPROXIMATE TIME FOR THE FIRST CYCLE IS BETWEEN 30-40 MINUTES.

8.EACH CYCLE WILL TAKE ABOUT 5 OUNCES OF WATER SO YOU SHOULD HAVE A FULL TRAY AFTER ABOUT 11 HOURS.

IMPORTANT: THROW AWAY ALL ICE CUBES MADE DURING THE FIRST 3 HOURS OF OPERATION.

• WHEN THE ICE BUCKET IS FULL, THE ICE MAKING MECHANISM WILL

 

 

AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF. THE REFRIGERATION SYSTEM WILL

 

 

CONTINUE TO COOL AND MAINTAIN FREEZING TEMPERATURES WITHIN

 

THE UNIT.

 

THE ICE MAKING FUNCTION MAY BE TEMPORARILY STOPPED BY

 

 

RAISING THE METAL ARM INTO AN UPRIGHT POSITION (SEE FIGURE 2)

 

FIGURE 2

IF THE ICEMAKER IS NOT USED REGULARLY, WE RECOMMEND THAT THE

 

ICE BUCKET BE EMPTIED PERIODICALLY TO ENSURE FRESH ICE.

SOMETIMES THE CUBES MAY APPEAR CLOUDY. THIS SHOULD NOT BE A CAUSE FOR CONCERN AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TASTE OR CHEMICAL MAKE-UP OF THE WATER.

THE FRONT GRILL SHOULD BE KEPT FREE OF DUST AND LINT TO PERMIT FREE AIRFLOW.

THIS UNIT SHOULD BE DEFROSTED ABOUT EVERY 4-6 WEEKS OR WHEN FROST ON THE ICE MAKER WALLS IS EXCESSIVE (¼” THICK OR THICKER). TO DEFROST, TURN THE UNIT OFF, REMOVE/DISCARD THE EXISTING 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.

DO NOT SCRAPE OFF THE FROST WITH ANYTHING EXCEPT A PLASTIC SCRAPER.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

¾CLEANING YOUR ICE MAKER

TURN THE SWITCH CONTROL TO "OFF", UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER AND REMOVE THE BUCKET.

WASH THE INSIDE 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 BUCKET WITH A MILD DETERGENT SOLUTION.

THE OUTSIDE OF THE ICE MAKER SHOULD BE CLEANED WITH MILD DETERGENT AND WARM WATER.

3

THE STAINLESS STEEL COMPONENTS OF THE DOOR SHOULD BE CLEANED WITH STAINLESS STEEL CLEANER

THE CONDENSER COILS SHOULD BE VACUUMED WHEN THEY ARE DUSTY OR DIRTY.

CAUTION

FAILURE TO UNPLUG THE ICE MAKER WHEN CLEANING, MOVING, OR SERVICING IT COULD RESULT IN ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR PERSONAL INJURY.

¾POWER 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 SHOULD TAKE THE PROPER STEPS TO DISCONNECT YOUR APPLIANCE.

¾VACATION TIME/STORAGE

1.SHUT OFF THE WATER SUPPLY AT THE MAIN WATER VALVE.

2.DISCONNECT THE WATER SUPPLY LINE FROM THE VALVE.

3.ALLOW THE UNIT TO RUN FOR AN HOUR OR TWO UNTIL ALL REMAINING ICE CUBES HAVE BEEN EJECTED AND ALL WATER HAS CYCLED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AND HAS BEEN MADE INTO ICE CUBES.

4.DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM THE MAIN POWER SOURCE.

5.DRY OUT EXCESS WATER FROM THE ICE MAKER ASSEMBLY

6.LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN AT LEAST TWO INCHES.

¾MOVING YOUR ICE MAKER

SECURELY TAPE DOWN ALL LOOSE ITEMS INSIDE YOUR ICE MAKER.

TURN THE LEVELING SCREWS UP TO THE BASE (THEIR SHORTEST LENGTH POSSIBLE) TO AVOID DAMAGE.

TAPE THE DOOR SHUT.

MAKE SURE THE ICE MAKER STAYS IN THE UPRIGHT POSITION DURING TRANSPORTATION.

¾ENERGY SAVING TIPS

THE ICE MAKER SHOULD BE LOCATED IN THE COOLEST AREA OF THE ROOM, AWAY FROM HEAT SOURCES, AND OUT OF THE DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
