1. The ice maker should not be placed in an outdoor environment. It is best to install it in a safe, clean, and well ventilated environment, and avoid direct sunlight and rain.
2. The ice maker should not be close to heat sources, and the operating environment should not be lower than 5 ℃ or higher than 40 ℃ to avoid excessive temperature affecting the heat dissipation of the condenser and not achieving good ice making results.
3. The ice maker should be installed on a stable platform and the foundation screws at the bottom of the machine should be adjusted to ensure that the machine is placed horizontally, otherwise it may cause non deicing and noise during operation. There should be space left around the machine, and in order to facilitate heat dissipation, the space on the left, right, and rear of the machine should not be less than 150mm.
4. The ice maker should use an independent power supply that meets national standards. The power supply should ensure reliable grounding, and be equipped with fuses and leakage protection switches. The voltage fluctuation should not exceed ± 10% of the rated voltage.
5. The ice maker should use a water source that meets local drinking water standards, and install filters to remove impurities in the water, avoid clogging water pipes, polluting water tanks and ice molds, and affecting ice making performance. The minimum water temperature is 2 ℃ and the maximum does not exceed 35 ℃. The minimum water pressure is 0.02Mpa and the maximum water pressure is 0.8Mpa.
6. The ice maker must unscrew the inlet hose head for two months, clean the inlet valve filter screen, and prevent sand and mud impurities in the water from blocking the inlet, resulting in a decrease in the amount of water entering and not making ice. Although the ice maker will discharge the cooled residual water from the sink at the end of each ice making process to achieve cleaning effect, which can effectively reduce the generation of scale in the evaporator and water circulation system, it is generally necessary to use ice maker cleaning agents and disinfectants to clean and disinfect the water distribution pipe, sink, refrigerator, and water baffle after about six months, and rinse thoroughly. The ice cubes generated during the cleaning process cannot be consumed. When not in use for a long time, it should be cleaned thoroughly, and the ice mold and the moisture inside the box should be dried with an electric hair dryer. It should be placed in a well ventilated and dry place without corrosive gases, avoiding outdoor storage.
7. When handling the ice maker, care should be taken to prevent severe vibrations. The handling slope should not be less than 45 degrees. After long-distance transportation, the ice maker should be left for 2 to 6 hours before it can be turned on for ice making.
