GENERAL PRECAUTIONS

! DANGER !

Risk of child entrapment. Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer, take off the doors and leave shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

!WARNING

Never attempt to repair or perform maintenance on the unit until the electricity has been disconnected.

Altering, cutting of power cord, removal of power cord, removal of power plug, or direct wiring can cause serious injury, fire and/or loss of property and/or life and will void the warranty.

The anti-tip kit must be installed on these units if they are built-in and before it is used. Never use the wine racks or shelves as steps or a shelf to support more than their content.

CAUTION

Do not lift unit by door handle.

Use care when moving the unit. Some edges are sharp and may cause personal injury. Wear gloves when moving or positioning the unit.

Never install the unit behind closed doors. Be sure front grille is free of obstruction. Obstructing free air flow can cause the unit to malfunction, and may void the warranty.

Allow unit temperature to stabilize for 24 hours before use.

Never use an ice pick or other sharp instrument to help speed up defrosting. These instruments can puncture the inner lining or damage cooling unit.

Failure to clean the condenser every three months can cause the unit to malfunction. This could void the warranty.

User’s Manual

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS (CONTINUED)

CAUTION

Using a heater to speed up defrosting can damage the inner lining. DO NOT use any type of electrical heater to defrost.

Use only genuine U-Line replacement parts. Imitation parts can reduce ice rate, cause water to overflow from ice maker mold, damage the unit, and may void the warranty.

6

INSTALLATION

SITE PREPARATION

Your U-Line product is designed to be installed in a wall or under a counter or freestanding.

NOTE

The 75 BEV must be ordered for right or left hand door. The 75 BEV doors are not reversible. Any reference to reversing the door, does not apply to the 75 BEV.

1.Position the unit on a flat, level surface, capable of supporting the entire weight of the unit. Remember the unit will be significantly heavier once it is fully loaded.

It is extremely important that the unit is level. If it is not level, the ice mold will not fill evenly. This can cause a reduction in ice rate, uneven sized cubes or water spilling into the storage area which will cause the ice in the bin to melt prematurely. Remember that floors near drains have a tendency to slope towards the drain.

2.The surrounding air temperature must be at least 50°F (10°C) but must not exceed 110°F (40°C).

3.The unit must not be located near heat-generating equipment or in direct sunlight.

4.The unit must be located to allow clearance for water, drain and electrical connections in the rear when applicable.

5.Connect the unit to its own grounded and polarized 115 VAC, 60 Hz, 15A circuit (normal household current).

6.Avoid connecting the unit to a Ground Fault Interruptor (GFI). GFIs are prone to nuisance tripping which will cause the unit to shut down. GFIs are generally not used on circuits which power equipment that must run unattended for long periods of time.

7.The unit must be installed according to your local codes and ordinances.

! DANGER !

ELECTROCUTION HAZARD!

Electrical Grounding Required. This appliance is equipped with a three prong (grounding) polarized plug for your protection against possible shock hazards. It must be plugged into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle.

NEVER remove the round grounding prong from the plug.

NEVER use a two-prong grounding adapter.

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

Where a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered or a longer power cord is required, contact a qualified electrician to have it replaced in accordance with applicable electrical codes.

8.Connect the water supply line. See CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY for installation requirements.

These U-Line products are designed so they can be installed next to a wall on either side (Figure 1).

NOTE

Keep in mind that the door of the unit may be mounted on either side of the cabinet (see REVERSING THE DOOR) except for the 75 BEV. All U-Line units have a zero clearance for the door to open when the hinge is on the right, except for Stainless Steel Doors.

Additional clearance is needed for the Combo Models 29A, 29FF, and 75A only when the door hinge is on the left. See built-in installation for additional clearance requirements for these models.

Allow extra clearance, on hinge side, for a 90° door opening when installed against a wall on all Stainless Steel models.

U-Line recommends you consider additional clearance in front of the open door for convenience.

9.Position the unit to allow free air flow through the front grille (Figure 2).

User’s Manual

LEVELING THE UNIT

It is important that these units, primarily the ice maker assembly and 75 BEV are level. All 75 and 15 Series units are equipped with adjustable feet for leveling and height adjustment (Figure 3). All other units have rubber feet.

To level units with adjustable feet:

1.Adjust all four leveling feet evenly so that the top of the cabinet is at the desired installation height and level.

2.Using a level of at least two feet in length, measure the level of the floor where the unit is to be installed. Measure back-to-front and side-to-side and note the measurements.

3.With the unit on a level surface, adjust the feet, as appropriate, to compensate for the floor level measurements noted in Step 2.

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY -

ICE MAKER MODELS ONLY

Install a 1/4" outside diameter copper water line (not supplied with unit) from the nearest COLD water pipe. When connecting the water supply, follow these guidelines:

Review the local plumbing codes before you install the unit.

In most instances, the cold water supply will come from the basement through a hole in the floor.

The water pressure should be between 15 and 150 psi.

Install a shut-off valve in the 1/4" outside diameter supply line (not supplied with unit).

Connect sufficient tubing to the unit to allow the unit to be moved for cleaning and servicing. However, make certain that the tubing is not pinched or damaged during installation.

U-Line recommends the use of copper tubing for installation.

On BI-95 and BI-98 models, the water line is inserted through the hole in the rear of the unit to connect to the solenoid valve in the front (Figure 5).

1.Locate the compression fitting and ferrule packed in the unit. Slide the compression fitting and ferrule over the 1/4" outside diameter water supply line. Do not use thread sealing compound or tape. Using two wrenches, tighten the compression fitting on the supply line (see Figure 6). Do not overtighten.

2.Carefully bend the water supply line into position and connect the line to the solenoid valve (see Figure 7). Avoid kinking the water supply line.

3.For recessed installations, allow extra water supply line length to provide slack for easy removal from the recessed area (see Figure 8). This will also safeguard against kinking the line.

NOTE

On BI-95 and BI-98 models, route the water supply line through the unit so it does not come into contact with any internal components other than the solenoid valve (Figure 9). Normal operation creates some vibration. A water supply line contacting an internal component or cabinet wall can cause excessive noise during operation or damage to the line.

CAUTION

If you are not intending to use the ice maker and do not connect the water supply (or turn the supply valve off), it is imperative to raise the bucket arm of the ice maker (Figure 10). Failure to raise the bucket arm may result in damage to the water valve.
