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.

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.
