Replace the Water Filter

Replace the Water Filter

To purchase a replacement water filter, see “Accessories.”

Replace the disposable water filter when indicated on the water filter status display or at least every 9 months. If the ice making rate decreases before the Replace Filter light illuminates, then replace the filter.

1.Locate the water filter compartment in the right-hand side of the control housing. See Step 3 in the “Install Water Filter” section.

2.Turn the water filter counterclockwise (to the left), and pull it straight out of the compartment.

NOTE: There may be some water in the filter. Some spilling may occur.

3.Install the replacement water filter by following steps 2 through 5 in the “Install the Water Filter” section.


How Your Ice Maker Works

When you first start your ice maker, the water pan will fill and the system will rinse itself before starting to make ice. The rinsing process takes about 5 minutes.

Under normal operating conditions, the ice maker will cycle at preset temperatures. The ice level sensor located in the ice storage bin will monitor the ice levels.

IMPORTANT: If the water supply to the ice maker is turned off, be sure to set the ice maker control to OFF.

5.Cubes fall into the storage bin. When the bin is full, the ice maker shuts off automatically and restarts when more ice is needed. The ice bin is not refrigerated, and some melting will occur. The amount of melting varies with room temperature.

The Ice Making Process

1.Water is constantly circulated over a freezing plate. As the water freezes into ice, the minerals in the water are rejected. This produces a sheet of ice with a low mineral content.

2.When the desired thickness is reached, the ice sheet is released and slides onto a cutter grid. The grid divides the sheet into individual cubes.

3.The water containing the rejected minerals is drained after each freezing cycle.

4.Fresh water enters the machine for the next ice making cycle.

NOTE: As the room and water temperatures vary, so will the amount of ice produced and stored. This means that higher operating temperatures result in reduced ice production.

Using the Controls

1.To start ice production, press ON/OFF.

2.To stop ice maker operation, press ON/OFF.


Pressing the On/Off button does not shut off power to the ice maker.

Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the first 2 batches produced.
