Automatic ice maker...
There are a few things you will want to know
about your automatic ice maker.
l
The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm.
Downfor
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.
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 to-
ward a higher number. Wait a day and, if neces-
sary, 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 all the way in and lowerthe arm to the ON
position.
l
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.
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 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
