Servicing
The Ice Dispenser
Certain conditions will require you to
service the ice maker and dispenser.
The unit has been designed so that you
can do such servicing with a minimum
of effort.
Cold dry air has to circulate in the
freezer to maintain a safe freezing tem-
perature. Thus, cubes stored in the bin
will tend to evaporate and flow together
if not used regularly.
You should remove the bin and
empty the contents:
• After the first few harvests of ice have
been made by a newly installed unit.
This will allow any impurities in the
line to be flushed out.
• If you are going to be gone for longer
than a week. Raise the ice maker
shut-off arm to stop ice production
and prevent the cubes from freezing
into a mass around the ice auger.
• If the ice cubes become frozen to
each other and around the ice auger.
• If the ice cubes become frozen
together on the back ledge of the ice
bin. Periodic cleaning of the ice bin
may alleviate this occurrence. Clean
with warm water and dry before
replacing bin. Do not use an ice pick
to break apart ice.
Ice maker control arm. The wire con-
trolarm on the automatic ice maker has
2 functions:
1. Normal Operation: the wire arm is
in the down position; ice will be
made. (See Fig. 14).

To stop ice production or to remove
the ice bin: take hold of wire arm
near black housing, and lift up. There
will be an audible "click" when ice
maker shuts off. The wire arm stays
in the upper position. (See Fig. 15).
As long as the arm is in this position,
ice will not be made. The unit will
continue to dispense cubes from the
ice bin until all have been used.
