BEFORE FIRST USE
This portable icemaker uses a fully automatic control system, with an advanced microcomputer for easy and convenient ice making. Making ice is simple and fast. Just add water, plug into an outlet, and press the ON button. You can select one of the two ice cube sizes with the touch of a button. When first turning on the unit or during icemaking cycles, the compressor will stay idle for 3 minutes, while energizing.
There are warning indicators that alert you to fill water when the reservoir is empty and to remove ice when the storage basket is full. The icemaker also has built-in safeguards that can limit accidental damage, automatically shutting down the system when necessary.
Please read carefully.
- The incline angle of the icemaker cabinet should not exceed 45˚ during transportation or use. Do not turn the icemaker upside down.
Doing so could cause the compressor or refrigerating system to operate incorrectly. When the icemaker is moved or transported, please allow time for the fluids in the compressor to settle. Before using the icemaker for the first time, please wait 2 hours after the unit has been leveled and positioned in its proper place.
- Please ensure the icemaker is level and on a stable table or platform
to avoid malfunction.
- The machine must be placed on a dry and level surface with sufficient ventilation, far from heat sources such as ovens, heaters and corrosive gases. Leave an 8-inch clearance on all sides of the icemaker for proper ventilation.
- Do not fill the water reservoir with hot water. This may damage the icemaker. It is best to fill the water reservoir with water of room temperature or lower.

- To change between either the small or large ice size, press the Select Button until the light is lit up beside the desired ice size.The first ice making cycle will last approximately 8 – 13 minutes depending on the ice size that is selected. The ice making cycle starts with water being pumped into the Water Tray situated below the Evaporator Fingers. Over the next 8 – 13 minutes ice forms on the Evaporator Fingers. Once this has completed, the Ice Tray will tilt backwards and the remaining water in the Ice Tray is drained back into the Water Reservoir. The ice cubes are then dropped from the Evaporator Fingers and pushed forward into the Ice Basket by the Ice Shovel. The Ice Tray will automatically move back into position under the Evaporator Fingers and start the next cycle.
- The ‘Ice Full’ LED light will light up when the ice basket is full and the Ice Maker will stop the ice making cycle automatically. Gently remove the ice from the Ice Basket with the Ice Scoop. Once the Ice Basket has been emptied and the Cover closed, the Ice Maker will restart its ice making function automatically. IMPORTANT: Wait 3 minutes then press the Power Button to restart the ice making function.
- The ‘Add Water’ LED light will light up when there is no more water in
the Water Reservoir and the ice making cycle will stop automatically. Press the Power Button once (the Power Button will flash every 5 seconds). Remove the Ice Basket and add water to the Water Reservoir.
NOTE: Do not fill above the MAX water level mark at the back of the Water Reservoir. Replace the Ice Basket and close the Cover. IMPORTANT: Wait 3 minutes then press the Power Button to restart the ice making function.
