INSTALLATION
Excessive
Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
ice maker.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Removing
Packaging
Materials
Remove tape and glue from your ice maker before using.
To remove any remaining tape or glue from the exterior of the
ice maker, rub the area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue
residue can also be easily removed by rubbing a small
amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with your
fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. Do not
use chlorine bleach on the stainless steel surfaces of the ice
maker. These products can damage the surface of your ice
maker.
Cleaning Before Use
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside
of your ice maker before using it. See the cleaning instructions
in
the "Ice Maker Care" section.
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 V4" (6.35 ram) 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 90°F (32°C).
INSTRUCTIONS
The ice maker must be installed in an area sheltered from the
elements, such as wind, rain, water spray, or drip.
When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the
recommended
opening dimensions shown. Place electrical
and plumbing fixtures in the recommended
location as
shown.
NOTES:
Be sure the power supply cord is not pinched between
the ice maker and the cabinet.
Be sure the water supply line is not pinched between the
ice maker and the cabinet.
Be sure the drain line (on some models) is not pinched
between the ice maker and the cabinet.
