bulb
Ice cube trays...
If cubes are not used, they may shrink. The mov-
rng cold air starts a slow evaporation,
The lonaer
-
cubes are stored, the smaller they get.
To remove
ice:
1. Hold tray at both ends.
2. Slightly twist.
Optional automatic ice maker...
If you have the automatic
ice maker accessory,
or If you plan to add one later [Part No. ECKMF-83),
there are a few things you will want to know:
* The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal
arm.
Down...for
making
ice automatically.
Up...to shut off the ice maker.
DO NOT TURN ICE MAKER ON UNTIL IT IS CON-
NECTED TO THE WATER SUPPLY.
l
The dial or lever on the side of the ice maker
changes
the size of the cubes.
l
Shake the bin occasionally
to keep cubes sepa-
rated, and to obtain
increased
storage
capacity
l
It is normal
for ice crescents
to be attached
by a
corner. They will break
apart
easily.
You will hear water
running
when
ice maker
is
working.
You'll hear ice fall into the bin. Don't let
these sounds bother you.
The ice maker
will not operate
until the freezer
is cold
enough
to make
ice. This con
take
overnight.
Because
of new plumbing
connections,
the first
ice may be discolored
or off-flavored.
Discard
the first few batches
of ice.
If ice is not being
made
fast enough
and more
ice is needed,
turn the Refrigerator
Control
to-
ward a higher number, Wait a day and, if neces-
sary, turn the Freezer Control toward
A.
If you remove
the ice bin, raise the signal arm to
shut off the ice maker, When you return the bin,
push it all the way in and lower the arm to the ON
position.
If cubes
are stored too long, they may develop
an off-flavor...like
stale water. Throw them away.
They will be replaced.
Cubes
in the ice bin can
also become
smaller
by evaporation.
Good
water
quality
is important
for good
ice
quality. It is not recommended
that the ice maker
be connected
to a softened
water supply. Water
softener chemicals
such as salt from a malfunc-
tioning
softener
can
damage
the ice maker
mold and lead to poor quality
ice. If a softened
water supply
cannot
be avoided,
then it is impor-
tant that the water softener
be well maintained
and operating
properly.
