Installation of All Models

Unpacking

Remove two of the banding strips securing equipment to pallet.
Remove cardboard carton and packaging material.
Inspect exterior of machine for damage.

Open bin door and remove :

1 x water inlet tube
1 x drain tube complete with clip
1 x leg kit (not supplied on Ice One)

Remove transit tape from ice curtain and spray plate.

Check ID on rear of machine for correct voltage, e.g. 230 volt 50 hz for UK use.

Remove protective film from outer panes.
Installation

Check following services are within 1 metre of machine location:

Cold water supply terminated with a washing machine style stop valve.
Mains drainage with a connection point lower then the drain outlet of the machine. Connection point must be at least 1 ¼" diameter open and trapped (similar to a domestic washing machine). If drain is too high a stand or condensate pump must be used.
13 amp socket outlet. Due to high starting current, a two or three way adaptor with other appliances must not be used.

Note:

If a condensate pump is to be used, then 2 x 13 amp socket outlets are required.

Check the following:

Ambient temperature - minimum 10°C, maximum 40°C
Adequate space at rear of machine for water and drain connections.
Minimum clearance of 15cm to both sides of machine.

Note:

If clearance is less, ice production rate will decrease by as much as 25% due to overheating.

Fit adjustable feet to AC/EC46 and legs to AC/EC56 through to 226.

Level equipment in both directions : left to right and front to rear.

Fit 13 amp plug top (fitted with 13A fuse) to mains lead.

Fit water inlet hose to machine. Do not overtighten.

Fit flexible drain hose to machine and secure using clip provided.

Note:

Both hoses are fitted with one straight end and one angled end. Use which ever is the most suitable for that installation.

Connect water inlet hose to water supply. Do not overtighten.

Connect drain hose to main drain by inserting hose into upstand (similar to domestic washing machine).

Note:

To prevent drainage problems caused by loops in the hose, reduce hose length as far as practicable.

On AC/EC46, 56 & 86, remove front panel of machine.

Locate switch on control panel & move to position II.
Start Up Procedure for AC/EC46/56 & 86

Turn on water and power supply (Green pushbutton on front panel).

At this point water will enter the machine and fill the water tank, the water pump and fan motor will also run.

When the water tank is full and excess water is running through the drain, move switch back to position I. The machine will now start an ice making cycle.

After approximately 25 minutes, ice cubes will fall through the curtain and into the storage bin. The machine will automatically refill with water and start the next cycle.

Count and inspect the cubes:

AC/EC 46 = 18
AC/EC 56 = 24
AC/EC 86 = 24

Each cube should be clear and solid with a small depression of about 6mm at the base.
For AC/EC 46, 56 & 86

If the depression is greater than 6mm adjust the evaporator, fitted with a knob turn one- eighth turn clockwise and recheck after the next cycle.

If the depression is less than 6mm or the cube is rounded at the base, adjust the evaporator counter clockwise one - eighth turn and recheck after next cycle.
Start Up Procedure for AC/EC106, 126, 176, 206 & 226

Turn on water and power supply (Green pushbutton on front panel).

At this point water will enter the machine and fill the water tank, the water pump and fan motor will also run.

When the water tank is full and excess water is running through the drain, The machine will now start an ice making cycle.

After approximately 25 minutes, ice cubes will fall through the curtain and into the storage bin. The machine will automatically refill with water and start the next cycle.

Count and inspect the cubes:

AC/EC 106 = 32
AC/EC 126 = 48
AC/EC 176 = 48
AC/EC 206 = 102
AC/EC 226 = 102

Each cube should be clear and solid with a small depression of about 6mm at the base.

The above procedures are designed to supplement guidance given in the user handbook, not replace it.
