How The Ice Maker
. Condenser fan runs
Water pump runs (circulates water)
Cutter grid is warm to touch
WHEN THE DESIRED ICE SLAB THICK-
NESS IS REACHED, THE HARVEST CYCLE
BEGINS AND THE FOLLOWING HAPPENS:
Evaporator thermostat is satisfied
. Compressor keeps running
Condenser fan stops or turns very slowly
Water pump stops
Hot gas solenoid opens
Water inlet valve opens
Excess water is flushed out of the drain pan
Cutter grid is warm to the touch
NOTE: Normal harvest cycle takes 1 to
MACHINE RESUMES FREEZING AFTER
SLAB IS RELEASED FROM EVAPORATOR
AND THE CUlTING
WHEN THE STORAGE BIN IS FILLED, BIN
Cutter grid remains on
Water enters only during the defrost cycle
Therefore the first cycle will be completed
without water in the system.
As the room and water temperatures vary, so
will the amount of ice produced. This means
that higher operating temperatures will result
in reduced ice production.
The unit will shut off when ice in the storage
bin touches the bin thermostat well and will
automatically cycle to keep the bin full.
The storage bin is not refrigerated and some
melting will occur. This also varies with the
The unit needs good air circulation to
perform efficiently. Keep the front grille and
the condenser clean.
The water system, including filter screen in
the water inlet solenoid valve, needs to be
cleaned periodically for good circulation.
