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.

Pre-Operating Instructions

Please read carefully.

1. 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.

2. Please ensure the icemaker is level and on a stable table or platform to avoid malfunction.

3. 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.

4. 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.

Pre-Operating Instructions

Operating Instructions

1. Open the top cover, take out the ice storage basket and fill the water reservoir with drinkable (tap, purified or bottled) 2.3 quarts water to the level mark and replace the ice storage basket.

Operating Instructions

Make sure that the water level does not reach above the level mark or the
bottom of the ice storage basket. Close the top cover.

Note: During the operation process, if the level of water in the water reservoir becomes too low, the machine will automatically stop operating and the “Add Water” indicator will display on the LED.

2. Plug the unit into a grounded outlet. Push the ON / OFF button on the control panel to turn on the machine.
3. Select the desired size of ice cube by pressing the S or L ice selector button.

S = Small ice cubes (Approx. 7 minutes)
L = Large ice cubes (Approx. 12 minutes)

The icemaker will start making ice soon after. The next cycle of 9 ice cubes is complete (based on water temperature, ambient room temperature and selected ice cube size).

Note: To stop the operation, press the ON/OFF button.

Operating Process

1. Water is pumped from the water storage tank to the water box, which may take up to 1 minute.

2. The icemaking cycle begins when the evaporator rods are dipped into the water box. You will hear the compressor working.

3. It will take approximately 5-13 minutes for each icemaking cycle, depending on the size selected. The larger the size, the more time is needed to make the ice. After the cycle is finished, the water box will tilt forward and the remaining water will flow back into the water storage tank. The evaporator rods will then release the ice cubes.

Note: If the room ambient temperature is below 60° F, then small ice cube sizes are suggested to prevent ice cubes from fusing together.

4. Approximately 60 seconds later, the water box will tilt backwards and the ice pusher will push the ice into the ice storage basket. After the water box flips back to its original position, the next icemaking cycle will begin.

5. When the maximum capacity of ice cubes is collected and the ice reaches the temperature sensor, the icemaker will automatically stop operating. The “ICE FULL” LED indicator will light up.

If more ice is needed, remove the ice from the ice storage basket; then replace the basket into the machine, making sure that the basket is placed back to its original position. Note: When replacing the basket, ensure that the temperature sensor is above the basket so that the machine operates properly.

6. To continue making ice, check that there is water in the water storage tank. If there is no water in the water storage tank, then no water will be pumped into the water box, and the operation will stop. The “Add Water” LED display will light up. Press the “OFF” button. Fill the water storage tank with water, and then press the “ON” button for the icemaker to begin operating again. Allow the refrigerant inside the compressor at least 3 minutes to settle before

7. If the compressor stops for any reason such as water shortage, too much ice, power off, etc., do not restart the machine right away. Wait at least 3 minutes before restarting the machine.


Before using your icemaker, it is strongly recommended that you clean the icemaker thoroughly. Be sure to clean the icemaker regularly.

1. When cleaning, please make sure the power has been turned off and the plug is disconnected from the outlet. When plugging or unplugging the unit from the outlet, pull directly on the plug. Never pull on the power cord.

2. Remove the ice storage basket.

3. Drain remaining water from unit. Remove the cap, then the
rubber plug from the spout. When assembling back together,
the rubber plug must be inserted first into the spout, and then
capped. Otherwise, the icemaker will leak.

4. Use a mild detergent diluted in warm water and wipe with a soft
towel or sponge. Solvents, detergents and abrasives must never be used for cleaning.

5. Wipe the inner parts, such as the ice storage basket, water reservoir, water box, ice pusher, and evaporator rods.

6. The outside of the icemaker should be cleaned regularly with a mild detergent solution, warm water, and a soft cloth.

7. Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.

8. To begin making ice once the unit has been cleaned, pour clean water into the water reservoir and fill up to the level line follow operating instructions. Never tilt or place the icemaker on its side, otherwise you must wait 10 hours for compressor coolant to settle.

9. To ensure the cleanliness of the ice cubes, the water in the water storage tank should be replaced every 24 hours.

10. When the machine is not in use or will not be used for an extended period of time, unscrew the drain cap, then remove the rubber plug behind the unit to empty the remaining water in the water reservoir completely. (Follow the instructions in number 4 above.)
