0 Water enters only during the defrost cycle. Therefore
the first cycle will be completed without water in the
0 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
0 The unit will shut off when ice in the storage bin
touches the bin thermostat well and will auto-
matically cycle to keep the bin full.
0 The storage bin is not refrigerated

0 The unit needs good air circulation to perform effi-
ciently. Keep the front grill and the condenser clean.
0 The water system, including filter screen in the water
inlet solenoid valve, needs to be cleaned periodically
for good circulation. Instruction are located on the
inner door panel.

and Care Guide.
0 Before starting, wash out interior of cabinet with a
Baking Soda solution (2 tablespoons soda to a quart
of warm water). Rinse thoroughly.

This model operates at
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 up. This de-
energizes the system except for the transformer, cutter
grid and bin light.
Under normal operating conditions, when the evaporator
reaches the preset temperature (+ loOF, -12.2OC to -3OF,
-19.4%, 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 380 + 2OF (3.30 + 1%).
