COMPONENT LOCATION/IDENTIFICATION Use and Care Guide Manitowoc SEQUENCE OF OPERATION INITIAL START-UP OR START-UP AFTER AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF 1. Before the ice machine starts, the water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to completely purge the sump trough of old water. This feature ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. 2. The compressor and fan motor (air-cooledmodels) start after the water pump and water dump valve de-energize. Figure 3. FREEZE SEQUENCE FREEZE SEQUENCE 3. The water pump restarts after a 30 second delay. When the water pump is running, an even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into cach cube cell, where it freezes. When sufficient ice has formed, the water flow contacts the ice thickness probe. After approximately seven seconds, the harvest sequence is initiated HARVEST SEQUENCE 5. a. Both hot gas valves open, diverting hot refrig erant gas into the evaporators. b. "The water dump solenoid is energized for 45 seconds to purge the water in the sump trough. After the 45 second purge, the water pump and water dump valve de-energize. 000 Figure 4. HARVEST SEQUENCE 6. "The hot refrigerant gas warms the evaporator,calis ing the cubes to slide, as a unit off the evaporators and into the storage bin. The sliding sheet of cubes swings the water curtain out, activating the bin switch. The momentary opening of the bin switch terminates the harvest sequence and returns the ice machine to the freeze sequence (Steps 3-4). AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF 7. When the storage bin is full, the sheet of cubes fail to clear the water curtain and hold it open. If the water curtain is held open for more than seven seconds, the ice machine will shut off. The ice machine remains off until enough ice has been removed from the storage bin that the ice can drop clear of the water curtain. As the water curtain swings back to operating position, the ice machine restarts. (Step 1-2). Figure 5. AUTOMATIC SHUTOFF SELF CLEANING SYSTEM (SeCS) Refer to page 13. Manitowoc Use and Care Guide OPERATIONAL CHECKS ICE THICKNESS CHECK (Figure 7) The ice thickness probe is factory set to maintain the ice bridge thickness at 1/8". Your Manitowoc ice machine is factory operated and adjusted before shipment. Normally, new installations do not require any adjustment. To ensure proper op cration, always follow the Operational Checks when Starting the ice machine for the first time, after a pro longed "out of service" period, and after cleaning and sanitizing Make sure the water curtain is in place when perform ing the Ice Thickness Check, The water curtain prevents water from splashing out of the water frough. Inspect the bridge connecting the cubes. The bridge should be approximately 1/8" thick. Follow the steps below if any adjustment is needed. Routine adjustments and maintenance procedures out lined in this guide are not covered by the warranty: WATER LEVEL CHECK (Figure 6) 1. Check the water level while the machine is in the freeze mode and the water pump is running. 1. Turn the ice thickness probe adjustment screw clockwise to increase the bridge thickness, or coun terclockwise to decrease the bridge thickness. Note A 1/3 turn of the adjustment screw changes the ice thickness approximately 1/16".

Operational Checks: Water Level Ice Thickness 7. Removal from Service/Winterization GENERAL ICE MACHINE INSPECTION 2. Sponge any dust and dirt off the outside of the ice machine with mild soap and water. Wipe dry with a soft clean cloth. Check all water fittings and lines for leaks. Also, make sure the refrigeration tubing is not rubbing or vibrating against other tubing panels, etc. Do not stack anything (boxes, etc.) on or around the ice machine. Do not cover the ice machine while it is operating. There must be adequate airflow through and around the ice machine to ensure long component life and maximize ice production. A Caution Stainless steel panels should be cleaned with a mild soap or a commercial stainless steel cleaner Do not use cleansers containing bleaching agents. They usually contain chlorine, which stains stainless steel. Heavy stains should be removed with stainless steel wool. Never use plain steel wool or abrasive pads. They will scratch the panels and cause rusting. EXTERIOR CLEANING 1. Clean the area around the ice machine as often as necessary to maintain cleanliness and efficient op eration. Manitowoc Use and Care Guide CLEANING THE CONDENSER If further cleaning is required, use one or both of the following procedures: A WARNING Disconnect the electric power to the ice machine and the remote condenser at the electric service switch box before cleaning the condenser. a. Blow compressed air through the condenser from the inside. Take care not to bend the fan blades. Shine a flashlight through the con denser to check that all the dirt is removed. b. Clean with a commercial condenser coil cleaner, according to the directions and cau tions supplied with the cleaner. AIR-COOLED CONDENSER A dirty condenser restricts airflow, resulting in exces sively high operating temperatures. This reduces ice production and shortens component life. Clean the condenser at least every six months. 3. Straighten any bent condenser fins with a fin comb, Figure 9. CONDENSER Caution The condenser fins are sharp. Use care when clean ing them FIN Note Remove the front cover and pull the bottom of the filter out first for removal. "Come" DOWN The washable aluminum filter is designed to catch dust, dirt, lint, and grease. This helps keep the condenser clean. Clean the filter with a mild soap and water solution TAI ! Figure 9. STRAIGHTEN BENT CONDENSER FINS 4. Carefully wipe off the fan blades and motor with a soft cloth, taking care not to bend the fan blades. Wash excessively dirty fan blades with warm soapy water, then rinse thoroughly. Caution If you are cleaning the condenser fan blades with water cover the fan motor to prevent water damage. SVET WATER-COOLED CONDENSER (AND WATER REGULATING VALVE) The water-cooled condenser and the water regulating valve may require cleaning due to scale build-up. Figure 8. SELF-CONTAINED AIR-COOLED FILTER Lowice production, high water consumption and high operating temperatures and pressures all may be symp toms of restrictions in the condenser water circuit. 2. Clean the outside of the condenser with a soft brush or a vacuum with a brush attachment. Brush or wash the condenser from top to bottom- not from side to side. Be careful not to bend the fins. Shine a flashlight through the condenser to check for dirt between the fins. The cleaning procedures require special pumps and cleaning solutions. Therefore, they must be performed by qualified maintenance or service personnel.

Before calling for service, restart the ice machine using the following procedures: 1. a. Move the ICE/OFF/CLEAN switch to OFF and then back to ICE. If the safety limit feature has stopped the ice machine, it will restart after a short delay. Proceed to Step 2 b. If the ice machine does not restart, refer to "Ice Machine Does Not Operate" in the problem checklist. 2. Let the ice machine operate to determine if the condition recurs. a. If the ice machine stops again, the condition recurred. Call for service. b. If the ice machine continues to run, the condition corrected itself. Let the machine run.
