Ice Production Rate

The ice maker should produce a complete batch of ice
approximately every 3 hours.

To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See “Using the Controls.” Wait 24 hours
between adjustments.


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

The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of
the water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the
ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener
chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker
and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, make sure the water softener is operating
properly and is well maintained.

Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin.

order and replace your water filter. When the yellow (Order) light
is on, it is almost time to change the water filter. When the red

recommended that you replace the water filter when the indicator
light changes to red OR earlier if the flow of water to your water
