Preparing the Site

IMPORTANT
It is extremely important that the unit is level. If it
is not level, the ice mold will not fill evenly. This
can cause a reduction in ice rate, uneven sized
cubes or water spilling into the storage area
which will cause the ice in the bin to melt pre-
maturely. Remember that floors near drains have
a tendency to slope towards the drain.
1
Position the unit on a flat, level surface,
capable of supporting the entire weight of
the unit. Remember that the unit will be
significantly heavier once it is fully loaded.
2
The surrounding air temperature must be at
least 50°F (10°C) but must not exceed 110°F
(43°C).
3
The unit must not be located near heat-
generating equipment or in direct sunlight.
DANGER
ELECTROCUTION HAZARD!
Electrical Grounding Required. This appliance
is equipped with a three prong (grounding)
polarized plug for your protection against
possible shock hazards.
NEVER remove the round grounding
prong from the plug.
NEVER use a two-prong grounding
adapter.
NEVER use an extension cord to
connect power to the unit.
Where a two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered or a longer power cord is
required, contact a qualified electrician to
have it replaced in accordance with applicable
electrical codes.
4
The unit must be located to allow clearance
for water, drain and electrical
connections in the rear of the ice maker.
5
Connect the unit to a grounded and polarized
115 VAC, 60 Hz, 15 A circuit (normal
household current).
6
Avoid connecting the unit to a Ground
Fault Interruptor (GFI). GFIs are prone to
nuisance tripping which will cause the unit to
shut down. GFIs are generally not used on
circuits which power equipment that must run
unattended for long periods of time.

Site Preparation

7
The unit must be installed according to your
local codes and ordinances.
NOTE
The door of the unit may be mounted on either
side of the cabinet (see REVERSING THE
DOOR). All units require zero clearance when
installed flush with a cabinet or wall (see Figure
2). Electrolux stainless steel models require
a minimum 2-3/4 inch handle clearance when
installed against a wall or cabinet that extends
beyond the front edge of the unit (see Figure 3).
