This ice maker can be installed as free standing, enclosed under a countertop, or built-in (sealed to the floor). In any case, there must be adequate air space around the unit for ventilation.

Installation Types:


  • Free-standing installation: This will allow you to install the ice maker in any place you desire provided you have access to a water supply.

  • Enclosed Installation: An enclosed installation will allow you to install the ice maker under a counter top or in a kitchen cabinet provided the required clearance space around the ice maker is respected. This installation has the same requirements as a free standing installation.

  • Built-in Installation:  Built-in installations require you to remove the feet and place the unit flat on the floor or on a platform depending on your installation requirements. It will still be necessary to allow adequate ventilation space around the unit. Seal all around the cabinet to the floor with an approved caulking compound.


Consult the Owner's Manual for Installation Instructions for each type of installation.


Installation Considerations:


  • This ice maker should be properly installed by qualified personnel.

  • The unit should be located on a firm and level surface. It is important for the ice maker to be leveled in order to work properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of the ice maker by rotating the plastic
    sheaths around each of the four rolling casters on the bottom of the machine.

  • To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front of the unit must be completely unobstructed.

  • When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the recommended spacing dimensions (clearances) outlined in the owner's manual.  The installation should allow the ice maker to be pulled forward for servicing if necessary.

  • Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 50°F (10°C) and below 100°F (38°C). Operation of the ice maker for extended periods outside of these normal temperature ranges may affect production capacity.

  • This unit MUST be installed in an area protected from the elements, such as wind, rain, water spray or drips.

  • The unit should not be located next to ovens, grills or other high heat sources.


Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet of ¼-in. (6.35mm) soft copper tubing with a shut-off valve and requires a continuous water supply with a minimum pressure of 15 psig and a static pressure not to exceed 80 psig. The temperature of the water feeding into the ice maker should be between 41°F (5°C) and 90°F (32°C) for proper operation.
