5
ings to Remember
l
Water enters only during the defrost cycle.
Therefore the first cycle will be completed
without water in the system.
l
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.
l
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.
l
The storage bin is not refrigerated and
some melting will occur. This also varies
with the room temperature.
l
The unit needs good air circulation to
perform efficiently. Keep the front grille and
the condenser clean.
l
The water system, including filter screen in
the water inlet solenoid valve, needs to be
cleaned periodically
for good circulation.
Instructions
are located on the inner
door panel.
