5 About the controls and features. GEAppliances.com Ice scoop Control panel Ice making area Front service panel Kickplate Starting the ice machine. This machine takes in room temperature air at the lower right front and forces warm air out the lower left front. Restricting the airflow or operating the machine in a hot or cold environment will adversely affect the ability of the ice machine to make ice. When the door is opened, the control panel, ice making area and ice storage bin are visible. The scoop is located in a holder along the right side wall. This is a gravity drain model that must have a building drain connection below the level of the drain tube at the back of the cabinet. A pump can be installed, which can force drain water up a maximum of 10 feet, allowing it to be located where a gravity drain isn't available. See Accessories on page 10 for more information on the drain pump. Initial Start Up 1. Turn on the water supply. 2. Switch on the electrical power. 3. Push and release the ON/OFF switch to start the machine. The ICE MAKING light next to the ON/OFF switch will glow white. 4. Water will begin to flow into the unit.

Skill level Installation of this appliance requires basic mechanical skills. Completion time Installation can vary Water Line Installation 30 minutes Proper installation is the responsibility of the installer. Product failure due to improper installation is not covered under the Warranty. ICE MACHINE LOCATION AND PREPARATION This ice machine is designed to be used indoors, in a controlled environment or outdoors within certain limits. It is made up of two major systems: the ice making system and the ice storage system. The ice making system is a continuous flow that makes ice when the ice level becomes low and stops when it is full. IMPORTANT: Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice. Objects like wine or beer bottles are not only unsanitary, but the labels can slip off and plug up the drain. IMPORTANT: Never allow the machine to operate without regular cleaning. The machine will last longer if it is kept clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least once per year, and preferably twice. Some water conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning of the ice making section, and some carpets or pets will dictate more frequent cleaning of the condenser Specifications The ice machine will operate adequately within the limits, but functions best in temperatures between 70 F and 80 F. Minimum air temperature: 50 F (10 C) Maximum air temperature: 100 F (38 C) Minimum water temperature: 40 F (4.5 C) Maximum water temperature: 100 F. (38 C) Minimum water pressure: 20 psi (1.4 bar) Maximum water pressure: 80 psi (5.5 bar) Electrical voltage limits: Minimum volts Maximum volts 8

9 Installation Instructions ICE MACHINE LOCATION AND PREPARATION (Cont) Water Quality Filters and Treatment All water, including potable water supplied by municipalities, contains some impurities or minerals. Water absorbs impurities from the air as rain and/or as it flows through the ground. Some of the impurities are solid particles. These are known as suspended solids, and a fine particle filter will remove them. Other impurities are chemically bonded to the water molecules and cannot be filtered out. These are called dissolved solids. Ice made by this machine will have a lower mineral content than the water it was made from. This is due to the method of making ice. Purer water will freeze first in the ice making molds. The reason for this is that anything dissolved in water lowers the water's freezing temperature. This concentrates most of the impurities of the ice machine water reservoir where they may form hard deposits known as scale. The machine dilutes the concentration of minerals by over-filling the reservoir during the harvest cycle (with the excess water flowing down the drain). Water use varies with air and water temperatures. Between 2 and 4 pints of water flow into the unit each cycle. Between 1 and 3.5 pints of that rinses the reservoir and goes down the drain. Some impurities will inevitably remain, and will stick to the parts in the machine. This will cause malformed ice cubes. Eventually, built up mineral scale can shorten machine life. To keep the machine operating properly, these impurities or minerals will have to be regularly dissolved by an acid cleaner. Directions for this may be found in the Care and Cleaning section. In general, it is always a good idea to filter the water. A proper water filter can remove taste and odors as well as particles. We recommend using a GE Water Filter on your water inlet line such as GE Model Number GXRLQ. Please go to to review the installation instructions and determine which filter will suit your application. In Canada visit Some other methods of water treatment for dissolved solids include reverse osmosis, and polyphosphate feeders. RO Water This machine can be supplied with Reverse Osmosis water, but the water conductivity must be no less than 10 microsiements/cm. A reverse osmosis system should include post treatment to satisfy the R.O. water's potential aggressiveness. Deionized water is not recommended. Because water softeners exchange one mineral for another, softened water may not improve water conditions when used with ice machines. Where water is very hard, softened water could result in white, mushy cubes that stick together. If in doubt about the water, contact a local point of use water specialist for recommendations on water treatment. Installation Overview The ice machine must: - be connected to cold, potable water - be connected to a drain - be connected to the proper power supply - be able to circulate air through the vents at the front. NOTE: Do not build in so that the door is recessed. 9
