IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS ARE VERY IMPORTANT. It is important that you read these instructions before using your portable ice maker and we strongly recommend that you keep them in a safe place for future reference.
- Do not operate this or any other appliance with a damaged cord. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer its service agent, or a similarly qualified person to avoid a hazard. This ice-maker must be positioned so that the plug is accessible. Connect to properly polarized outlets only. No other appliance should be plugged into the same outlet. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted into the receptacle.
- Do not run the power cord over carpeting or other heat insulators. Do not cover the cord. Keep the cord away from high-traffic areas, and do not submerge in water.
- We do not recommend the use of an extension cord, as it may overheat and become a risk of fire. If you must use an extension cord, use No.14AWG minimum size and rated no less than 1875 watts.
- Unplug the ice maker before cleaning, making any repairs, or servicing.
- Exercise caution and use reasonable supervision when the appliance is used near children.
- Do not use your ice maker outdoors. Place the ice maker away from direct sunlight. Make sure that there is at least 4 inches of unobstructed space between each side of your unit.
- Do not use any other liquid to make ice cubes other than water.
- Do not clean your ice maker with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
- Do not tip over.
- If the ice maker is brought in from outside storage in wintertime, give it a few hours to warm up to room temperature before plugging it in. Let stand in an upright position for 4 hours (if transported in a position other than the normal operations position.)

- Remove the adhesives securing the ice shovel, ice basket & ice scoop. Clean the tank & ice basket.
3. Put the ice maker on a level & fl at the countertop without direct sunlight and other sources of heat (i.e.: stove, furnace,
radiator). Make sure that there is at least a 4-inch gap between the back & left-hand/right-hand sides of the wall.
- Allow 4 hours to pass for the refrigerant fluid to settle before plugging the ice maker in.
- The appliance must be positioned so that the plug and outlet are easily accessible.
CLEANING AND MAINTAINING YOUR ICE MAKER
Before using your ice maker, it is strongly recommended to clean it thoroughly.
- Take out the ice basket.
- Clean the interior with diluted detergent, warm water, and a soft cloth.
- Then, use water to rinse the inside parts, and drain out the water by unplugging the drain cap on the front bottom side.
- The outside of the ice maker should be cleaned regularly with a mild detergent solution and warm water.
- Dry the interior and exterior with a clean soft cloth.
- When the machine is not to be used for a long time, drain water completely & dry the interior.
USING YOUR ICE MAKER
- Open the cover, remove the ice basket, and pour water into the tank. Keep the water level below the water level mark.
- Press the “Power” button on the control panel to begin the ice-making cycle.
- Select the ice cube size by pressing the “Select” button. If the room temperature is lower than 60°F (15.5°C), it is recommended to select a small ice cube to avoid ice sticking together.
- The ice-making cycle lasts approx. 6 to 13 minutes, depending on selection of ice cube size and the room temperature. The recommended room temperature is 50°F to 105°F (10°C to 40.5°C).
- If the water pump can’t inject water, the ice maker will stop automatically, and the “Add Water” indicator will be on. Press the “Power” button, and fill the water up to the max. water level mark and press the “Power” button again to turn on the unit again. Allow the refrigerant liquid inside the compressor at least 3 minutes to settle before restarting.
- The ice maker stops when the ice basket is full and the “Ice” indicator turns on. Warning: Direct sunlight or sunlight refl ection may cause infrared sensor malfunction. If the unit doesn’t stop until ice cubes obstruct the sensor, move the unit away from light.
- Change water in the water reservoir every 24 hours to ensure a safe hygiene level. If the unit isn’t to be used, drain all the water and dry the tank.
