This model operates at 115 volts except for the
cutter grid circuit which operates at 8.5 volts at
The compressor runs at all times except when
the Bin Thermostat becomes satisfied and
opens the circuit. This de-energizes the system
except for the transformer and cutter grid.
Under normal operating conditions, when the
evaporator reaches the preset temperature
(+lO" to -3°F [-12" to -19%], depending on
thickness of ice) the evaporator thermostat
opens, terminating operation of the fan motor
and pump motor. The hot gas solenoid and the
water valve solenoid are energized at this time
and remain so until the evaporator reaches
38" + 2°F (3" + 1 "C).
