Inlet Screen Cleaning —
Every Year
The solenoid valve inlet screen must be cleaned at
least once each year as follows:
1
Shut off the water at the water supply valve.
2
Pull the unit out to access the back panel.
3
Disconnect electrical power to the unit.
4
Disconnect the entire hose connector from
the water solenoid valve (see Figure 33).
5
Use a tooth brush to clean sediment from the
inlet screen. DO NOT remove the screen.
6
Re-connect the water supply line to the water
solenoid valve. Tighten connector securely.
Open the water supply valve and check for
leakage at the water connection. Make sure
the water supply line is not kinked.
7
Reconnect power to the unit before re-
installing.
8
Make sure the drain system is working
properly and the drain hose is not pinched or
kinked. Pour one gallon of cool, fresh water
into the ice bin. The water should drain freely.
If your ice maker is equipped with a drain
pump, the pump should drain the ice bin.
