Using
the optional
automatic
ice maker
lf you have an automatic ice maker, or
if you plan
to add one later (Part No. ECKMF-go), there are
a few things you will want to know:
l
The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm.
Down . . . to make ice automatically.
up . . . to shut off the ice maker.
. . .
NOTE: Do not turnice
on until It IS
wnnected to the water su?Dlv.tructlons
for
water supply
hook up are & I
Iached to the hck
of the ref~hmm
cabinet.
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
separated
and to obtain increased storage
capacity.
l
It is normal for ice crescents to be attached by
a corner. They will break apart easily.
l
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.
l
The ice maker will not operate until the freezer
is cold enough to make ice. This can take
overnight.
l
Because of new plumbing connections,
the first
ice may be discolored or off-flavored. Discard
the first few batches of ice.
l
If ice is not being made fast enough and more
ice is needed, turn the Refrigerator Control
toward a higher number. Wait a day and, if
necessary, turn the Freezer Control toward A.
l
If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm
to shut off the ice maker. When you return the
bin, push it in all the way and lower the signal
arm to the ON position.
l
If cubes are stored too long, they may develop
an off-flavor . . . like stale water. Throw them
away. Ice maker will make new ice. Cubes in
the ice bin can also become smaller by
evaporation.
l
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 malfunctioning
softener, can damage the
ice maker mold and lead to poor ice quality. If a
softened water supply cannot be avoided, it is
important that the water softener be well
maintained
and operating properly.
Raise
signal
arm to
stop ice.
LOWW
signal
arm to
start it.
