PRODUCT MODEL NUMBER
Electrical: A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply,
properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local
codes and ordinances, is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice maker, be
provided. Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off by a switch or pull
IMPORTANT: If this product is connected to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter) equipped outlet, nuisance tripping of the power supply may
occur, resulting in loss of cooling. Food quality and flavor may be affected. If
nuisance tripping has occurred, and if the condition of the food appears poor,
dispose of it.
Water: A cold water supply with water pressure between 30 and 120 psi
(207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate ice maker and water dispenser. If
you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply:
Reverse osmosis water filtration systems can be used only with ice maker
installations that have a gravity drain. A reverse osmosis system is not
recommended for ice makers that have a drain pump installed.
The pressure of the water coming out of a reverse osmosis system going
to the water inlet valve of the ice maker needs to be between 30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa). If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse
osmosis system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (207 and
To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front side must be
completely unobstructed. The ice maker may be closed-in on the top and
three sides, but the installation should allow the ice maker to be pulled
forward for servicing if necessary.
Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet of
(6.35 mm) OD soft copper tubing with a shutoff valve and either a gravity-
drain system or condensate pump to carry the water to an existing drain.
Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F (13°C) and
below 110°F (43°C). Best results are obtained between 70°F (21°C) and
