4 Product Features

Échelon Model CLR2160 Clear Ice Maker, Model CLRCO2175 Clear Ice Maker/Refrigerator

CLR2160

This model produces up to 60 lbs (27.2 kg) of ice per day, will store 30 lbs (13.6 kg).

Stainless steel model is deemed suitable for outdoor use by UL.

An electronic control panel with digital display allows you to control all operating functions.

CLRCO2175

This model produces up to 40 lbs (18.1 kg) of ice per day, will store 15 lbs (6.8 kg), and provides 2.5 cu ft (71 L) of refrigeration capacity.

An electronic control panel with digital display allows you to display the interior refrigerator temperature and adjust the setting to your preference.

Automatic (cycle) defrost eliminates the need for manual defrosting.

Three fully encapsulated, contoured shelves contain spills and are easy to clean.

Recessed shelf channels, supporting the encapsulated shelves, provide a sleek, clean appearance to the interior of the cabinet by eliminating protruding shelf supports.

Two contoured, inner door “pick-off” shelves are adjustable for storage of a variety of different bottle, can, and container sizes and shapes.

An interior light will illuminate automatically as the cabinet door is opened. However, you can easily select another mode of operation. A blackout/Sabbath mode (not Star K certified) allows you to darken both interior light and the LED display, while maintaining complete temperature control in the unit.

Exclusive Features of Échelon

An easy, self-cleaning process for the clear ice maker eliminates complicated procedures.

Black and white models feature a slightly contoured, across the top, integrated door handle design that permits the door to be easily reversed. The door comes standard with a factory-installed flush panel. These models can accommodate a 1/4 in. (0.64 cm) thick custom panel to achieve a custom, built-in look by matching surrounding cabinets.

An optional full overlay door panel kit for black and white units, using a customer provided 3/4" (1.9 cm) thick panel, is available that provides a fully integrated appearance with surrounding cabinets. The overlay panel is easily attached to the door.

Stainless steel model doors are not field-reversible.

All stainless steel models have a stainless steel full wrap cabinet, door and sculpted handle that distinguishes the Echelon™ stainless steel units from other heavier “commercial” looks.

Black and white models have vinyl clad steel cabinets that feature a rich textured look, and resist scratching, peeling, or flaking.

Self-closing door hinges engage when the door is open approximately 8-10 in. (20-25 cm), ensuring a positive door seal and preventing door bounce back.

Features and specifications are subject to change without notice.

5 Operation

ULIN_0080_A

Figure 2

IMPORTANT

Proper air flow (Figure 2) is required for your unit to operate at its highest efficiently. A grille, located in the base of the unit, must not be blocked at any time, or your unit will not perform as expected.

Initial Startup

All U-Line units are shipped with controls that are preset. No initial adjustments are required.

IMPORTANT

U-Line recommends the unit be allowed to run overnight prior to loading the Model CLRCO2175 refrigerator with product.

On ice maker equipped units, it is possible that dirt or scale will dislodge in the water line. Always throw away all ice cubes made during the first two to three hours of operation.

Figure 3

To turn the unit on or off, touch and hold the POWER icon (Figure 3, 1) on the display panel for approximately five seconds until the °F symbol flashes and release.

A small LED above the icon will illuminate to confirm the touch of any controller icon.

The CLRCO2175 display (Figure 3, 3) will show the unit set-point temperature (38°F) when the unit is on and will show OFF when the unit is off. The CLR2160 display (Figure 3, 3) will show ICE when the unit is on and will show OFF when the unit is off.

Turning the unit off will override any other control function.

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 23.

Water Supply

The unit requires a 1/4-inch OD water supply line and a shut-off valve. For more information see Page 22.

Drain

The unit’s generous 7-inch drain connection height extends the distance the unit can be located from a gravity drain. For more information see Page 19.

IMPORTANT

Drain can NOT be located directly below unit. Unit has a solid base that will not allow unit to drain below itself.

Environmental Requirements

Many U-Line models are designed to operate in harsh outdoor/marine environments. Special considerations include the following:

The units are designed to operate between 50°F (10°C) and 110°F (40°C). High ambient temperatures (110°F [40°C] or higher) may reduce the unit’s ability to reach low temperatures and may also reduce the ice production rate for those models with icemakers.

If the ambient temperature is expected to drop below 45°F (7°C), drain all water from the unit to prevent freezing damage not covered by the warranty.

For best performance, keep the unit out of direct sunlight and away from heat generating equipment.

For best performance and life outdoors, place under a counter or provide shelter of some kind.

In climates where high humidity and dew points are present, condensation may appear on outside surfaces. This is considered normal. The condensation will disappear when the humidity drops.

Place the bottle in the refrigerator area for 24 hours. Refrain from opening the unit during the testing period. After 24 hours, check the temperature of the water. If required, adjust the temperature control in a small increment (See ADJUSTING TEMPERATURE).

Factors which affect the internal temperatures of the cabinet include:

Temperature setting.

Ambient temperature where installed.

Number of times and length of time the door is opened and closed.

Installation in direct sunlight or near a heat source.

Interior Lighting

The interior of Model CLR2160 is not illuminated. The refrigerator section of Model CLRCO2175 is illuminated whenever the door is opened.

The LIGHT icon (Figure 3, 5) on the control panel is used to control an additional Model CLRCO2175 lighting function. The blackout/Sabbath mode (not Star K certified) will turn the interior light and display (Figure 3, 3) off.

To access the blackout/Sabbath mode (not Star K certified):

1.Touch and hold the LIGHT icon (Figure 3, 5) for ten seconds and release (the °F symbol will flash briefly at the end of the five second period).

2.The interior light and control display (Figure 3, 3) will go dark for 36 hours.

NOTE: Although the display will not be visible, the temperature controls in the unit remain active, and the interior temperature will be maintained.

3.To exit the blackout/Sabbath mode (not Star K certified) before the 36-hour period, repeat Step 1.

3.The change will be set five seconds after adjusting the temperature, and the new set-point temperature will be displayed.

Normal Operating Sounds

All models incorporate rigid foam insulated cabinets to provide high thermal efficiency and maximum sound reduction for its internal working components. In spite of this technology, your model may make sounds that are unfamiliar.

Normal operating sounds may be more noticeable because of the unit’s environment. Hard surfaces such as cabinets, wood/vinyl/tiled floors and paneled walls have a tendency to reflect normal appliance operating noises.

Common refrigeration components, and a brief description of the normal operating sounds they make, are listed below. NOTE: Your product may not contain all of the components listed.

Compressor: The compressor makes a hum or pulsing sound that may be heard when it operates.

Evaporator: Refrigerant flowing through an evaporator may sound like boiling liquid.

Condenser Fan: Air moving through a condenser may be heard.

Automatic Defrost/Drain Pan: Water may be heard dripping or running into the drain pan when the unit is in the defrost cycle.

Automatic Ice Maker: You will hear ice as it drops from the mold into the ice bin/tray.

Water Valve: The water valve will make an occasional buzzing sound and running water will be heard.

Outdoor Usage

Some U-Line models are designed to operate in outdoor environments. For best performance, keep the unit out of direct sunlight.

If the unit will be shut off for five days or more, prop door open to allow for air circulation and prevent mold and mildew.

IMPORTANT

If the ambient temperature is expected to drop below 45°F, turn off and unplug unit, and drain all water from the unit to prevent freezing damage not covered by the warranty.

High ambient temperatures (110°F or higher) may reduce the unit’s ability to reach low temperatures.
