General Precautions

Use this appliance for its intended purpose only and follow these general precautions along with those listed throughout this guide:

WARNING

SHOCK HAZARD — Electrical Grounding Required.

Keep the unit unplugged throughout installation except during testing.

Never remove the round grounding prong from the plug and never use a two-prong grounding adapter.

Never use an extension cord to connect power to the unit.

Always keep your working area dry.

CAUTION

Use care when moving and handling the unit. Use gloves to prevent personal injury from sharp edges.

Do not lift the unit by the door or door handle.

Do not install the unit behind closed doors or in any way that would obstruct airflow to the front grille, which may cause the unit to malfunction.

2 Inspect and Plan

You have received a carton containing your BI2015 Ice Maker with a package inside containing a User Manual, a Product Registration Card and water connection parts. Complete and mail the Product Registration Card or register online at www.U-LineService.com. Once your unit is installed, keep the User Manual and this Installation Guide in a safe place for future reference.

Your unit is Black, White or Stainless Steel. Black and White units have a reversible door with a slightly contoured handle across the top. They come with a flush mounted door panel that, when removed, will accept a custom 1/4-inch thick door panel or a 3/4-inch thick full overlay door panel. Stainless Steel units are covered with a protective coating and have been ordered leftor righthand hinged. The Stainless doors are not reversible and do not accept custom panels. Please carefully follow the directions that apply to your unit and your intended design.

Tools/Materials Required

7/64" Allen wrench

Screwdrivers — slotted and Phillips head

1/4-inch OD copper tubing and shut-off valve for water supply line

1/4-inch thick door panel material and cutting tools (Black or White units)

Full Overlay Door Panel Kit (part number U-OL2015B — Black or part number U-OL2015W — White), 3/4-inch door panel overlay, cutting tools, drill and bits (Black or White units)

Inspection

Unwrap and inspect the unit on a flat, level surface capable of supporting its entire weight.

Removing Protective Coating

(Stainless Steel Units Only)

When inspecting/installing a Stainless Steel unit, the protective coating covering the unit must be removed first. Start at a corner of the unit/door and pull back the protective coating to remove it from the unit/door.

After all the protective coating has been removed from the unit/door, clean all Stainless Steel surfaces with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable product or a mild detergent and warm water solution and soft cloth. Do NOT use abrasive cleaning agents.

Note: If cleaning with mild detergent and warm water solution and soft cloth, the unit MUST be treated with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable product to prevent discoloration.

Exterior Cleaning

(As Required)

Black and White Models:

The door, grille and cabinet may be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water solution. 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.

Stainless Steel Models:

Stainless steel models can discolor when exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, salt water or cleaners with bleach.

Keep your stainless steel unit looking new by cleaning with a good quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/ polish on a monthly basis. For best results use Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner, which can be purchased from U-Line Corporation. (The part number is 173348.) Comparable products are acceptable. Frequent cleaning will remove surface contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations may require cleaning on a weekly basis.

Do not clean with steel wool pads.

Do not use cleaners that are not specifically intended for stainless steel (this includes glass, tile and counter cleaners).

If any surface discolors or rusting appears, clean it quickly with Bon-Ami or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive cloth. Always clean in the direction of the grain. Always finish this process with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable product to prevent further problems.

Use of abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite will cause the graining in the stainless to become blurred.

Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate into the surface of the stainless steel and complete removal of the rust may not be possible.

3 Prepare Site

Your U-Line product has been designed for either freestanding or built-in installation. When built-in, your unit does not require additional air space for top, sides or rear. However, the front grille must NOT be obstructed and clearance is required for water, drain and electrical connections in the rear.

Note: Unit can NOT be installed behind a closed cabinet door.

Door Swing/Clearances Information

(Black and White Units Only)

All U-Line units (except Stainless Steel models) may be leftor right-hand opening. The door opening is easily reversed by moving the hinge hardware to the opposite side. The top hinge hardware will be used on the bottom of the other side and the bottom hinge hardware will be used on the top of the other side (see Figure 4).

To reverse the door:

1. Remove top hinge screw pin from door (7/64"

Allen wrench or Phillips screwdriver, depending on your unit’s

construction) (see Figure 5). Remove door by tilting forward and lifting off bottom hinge pin.

2.Remove plastic screw plugs (3 each, top and bottom) from new hinge location. Do not discard (see Figure 6).

Black and White units have a zero clearance for the door

 

to open 90° (see Figure 3). Stainless Steel models require

 

a minimum of 2-1/8" door clearance to accommodate the

 

handle if the unit is installed next to a wall or similar type

Other Site Requirements

Power Supply

The unit requires a grounded and polarized 115 VAC, 60 Hz, 15A circuit (normal household current). See

Electrical Specifications on Page 14.

Water Supply

The unit requires a 1/4-inch OD water supply line and a shut-off valve. For more information see Page 13.

Environmental Requirements

The surrounding air temperature must be at least 50°F (10°C) but must not exceed 110°F (40°C). High ambient temperature ranges and warmer water supply will cause reduced ice production. Black and White units may be installed outdoors in a covered area. Stainless Steel BI2015 units are deemed suitable for outdoor use by UL. The unit must not be located near heat-generating equipment or in direct sunlight.
