Ice Thickness Adjustment

The Clear Ice Maker uses advanced technology to make
ice that is crystal clear. This technology cascades a flow
of water over a chilled ice mold that is mounted verti-
cally so no water sits in it. Because of this ice making
technology, clear ice cubes differ significantly from regu-
lar ice cubes.

Differences are as follows:

• Dimples. Electrolux clear ice cubes have "dimples"
on one side from the cascading water process.
• Cube Variations. Cubes made from different batches,
or even cubes within the same batch may have
varying dimples, thicknesses and/or sizes due to the
cascading water process.
• Cube "slabbing". The Electrolux clear ice maker
makes a "slab" of ice that falls from the vertical mold
relying on gravity to break the ice bridges.
Depending on the control setting, and the fullness of
the ice bucket, it maybe necessary to tap the ice
slab with the scoop to break it apart.
ICE BRIDGE
The ice cube thickness control is factory set for best
overall performance. The factory setting is designed to
maintain an ice bridge of approximately 1/16" to 1/8"
under normal conditions resulting in a dimple of
approximately 1/4" to 1/2" in depth.
1/4" TO 1/2"
DIMPLE
A fuller cube with less of a dimple results in a thicker ice
bridge. As the ice bridge becomes thicker, the tendency
for the cubes to stay together as a slab increases.
DIMPLE
TOO DEEP
DIMPLE
A bridge thicker than 1/8" may cause cubes to overfill
the ice bucket.
