Installation method and operation method of ice maker


Today, I will introduce to you the installation method of the ice maker machine and the operation method of ice making.

1. Placement of the ice making machine

⑴The ice maker machine should be placed in a safe and clean place with good air circulation.

⑵The ice machine should not be placed in the open air, and should not be exposed to direct sunlight and rain. The surrounding area should not be close to the heat source.

⑶The operating environment of the machine cannot be lower than 5℃ and not higher than 38℃.

⑷ There should be enough space around the machine, especially the rear side should not be less than 150mm. So that the machine can dissipate heat.

⑸ Please adjust the anchor bolts at the bottom of the machine to ensure that the machine is placed horizontally and stably.

2. Installation of water system

⑴ Please connect to a water source that meets the local drinking water standard.

⑵Connect the filter when necessary to improve the drinking standard of water.

⑶ The water supply system must meet the following conditions:

a. The minimum water temperature is 2℃, and the maximum does not exceed 38℃

b. The lowest water pressure is 0.02Mpa and the highest is 0.8Mpa

3. Installation of power supply

⑴The power supply must be the same as that marked on the nameplate of the machine.

⑵All lines must comply with national standards.

⑶ It must be grounded reliably, and the grounding wire must comply with electrical standards.

⑷The voltage fluctuation shall not exceed ±10% of the rated voltage.


Method of operation

1. Ice making operation process

⑴Before starting the machine, it is necessary to check whether the automatic water supply device is normal and whether the water tank storage capacity is reasonable (the water level has been adjusted to the correct level when the machine leaves the factory, and the user does not need to adjust it).

⑵Plug in the power supply, the ice maker starts to work, first the water pump starts to run (the pump has a short air discharge process) after about 2 minutes, the compressor starts to start, and the machine enters the ice making state.

⑶When the thickness of the ice cube reaches the set thickness, the ice plate probe starts to start, the defrost solenoid valve starts to work, the water pump stops working, the hot air enters the evaporator, and the ice cube falls in about 1 minute. When the ice cube is falling, turn the falling ice baffle over and open the magnetic reed switch. When the reed switch is closed again, the machine enters the ice making process again.

⑷The compressor will not stop during the entire ice making and deicing process.

⑸When the ice storage bin is full and the reed switch cannot be closed automatically, the machine will automatically stop working. When enough ice is removed, the reed switch will be closed again, the machine will start after a delay of 3 minutes, and the ice making process will be re-entered. .

2. Adjust the thickness of the ice bridge

⑴The thickness of the ice bridge should be about 3mm, and the distance between the probe and the evaporator should be about 1.5mm thicker than the actual ice bridge thickness. Turn the adjustment screw clockwise to increase the thickness of the ice bridge (screw rotation 1/3 of the ice bridge thickness Change 1.5mm).

⑵ Check the wiring and connection bracket of the ice plate probe, and ensure that it can rotate freely so that it can return to the correct position after each ice making process.
