Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your ice maker into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection:
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 chain.
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. Ice quality
may be affected. If nuisance tripping has occurred, and if the
condition of the ice appears poor, dispose of it.
Recommended
grounding
method
The ice maker must be grounded. The ice maker is equipped with
a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug. The cord
must be plugged into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-type
wall
receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National Electrical
Code and local codes and ordinances.
If a mating wall receptacle
is not available, it is the personal responsibility
of the customer to
have a properly grounded, 3 prong wall receptacle installed by a
qualified electrician.
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If
you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Reverse
Osmosis
Water Supply
IM PORTANT:
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 supply 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 (276 to 414 kPa).
NOTE: The reverse osmosis system must provide 1 gal. (3.8 L) of
water per hour to the ice maker for proper ice maker operation. If
a reverse osmosis system is desired, only a whole-house
capacity reverse osmosis system, capable of maintaining the
steady water supply required by the ice maker, is recommended.
Faucet capacity reverse osmosis systems are not able to
maintain the steady water supply required by the ice maker.
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work
properly. Depending upon where you install the ice maker, you
may need to make several adjustments to level it. You may also
use the leveling legs to lower the height of the ice maker for
undercounter
installations.
Tools needed:
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
9" level
Adjustable wrench
NOTE: It is easier to adjust the leveling legs if you have another
person to assist you.
1. Move the ice maker to its final location.
NOTE: If this is a built-in installation, move the ice maker as
close as possible to the final location.
2. Place the level on top of the product to see if the ice maker is
level from front to back and side to side.
3. Push up on the top front of the ice maker, and then locate the
leveling screws that are on the bottom front of the ice maker.
4. Using an adjustable wrench, change the height of the legs as
follows:
Turn the leveling leg to the right to lower that side of the
ice maker.
Turn the leveling leg to the left to raise that side of the ice
maker.
NOTE: The ice maker should not wobble. Use shims to add
stability when needed.
5. Push up on the top rear of the ice maker and locate the
leveling legs that are on the bottom rear of the ice maker.
6. Follow the instructions
in Step 4 to change the height of the
legs.
7. Use the level to recheck the ice maker to see that it is even
from front to back and side to side. If the ice maker is not
level, repeat steps 2 to 5. If the ice maker is level, go to the
"Connect Water Supply" section.
