How Your Ice Maker Works
When you rst start your ice maker, the water pan will ll and the
system will rinse itself before starting to make ice. The rinsing process
takes about 5 minutes.
Under normal operating conditions, the ice maker will cycle at preset
temperatures. The ice level sensor located in the ice storage bin will
monitor the ice levels.
IMPORTANT: If the water supply to the ice maker is turned off, be
sure to set the ice maker control to OFF.
The Ice Making Process
1. Water is constantly circulated over a freezing plate. As the water
freezes into ice, the minerals in the water are rejected. This
produces a sheet of ice with a low mineral content.
2. When the desired thickness is reached, the ice sheet is released
and slides onto a cutter grid. The grid divides the sheet into
individual cubes.
3. The water containing the rejected minerals is drained after each
freezing cycle.
4. Fresh water enters the machine for the next ice making cycle.
5. Cubes fall into the storage bin. When the bin is full, the ice maker
shuts off automatically and restarts when more ice is needed. The
ice bin is not refrigerated, and some melting will occur. The
amount of melting varies with room temperature.
NOTE: As the room and water temperatures vary, so will the amount
of ice produced and stored. This means that higher operating
temperatures result in reduced ice production.
Using the Controls
1. To start ice production, press ON/OFF.
2. To stop ice maker operation, press ON/OFF.
Pressing the On/Off button does not shut off power to the ice
Allow 24 hours to produce the rst batch of ice. Discard the rst 2
batches produced.
Max Ice Mode
Select the Max Ice feature when you have an upcoming need for a
large amount of ice and the ice bin is low or empty. Max Ice mode will
produce a greater quantity of ice in a 24-hour period.
Press MAX ICE while the ice maker is on. The indicator light will
Press MAX ICE again to turn off the Max Ice feature. The indicator
light will turn off.
The Max Ice mode will be on when you rst turn on the product.
It will turn off after 24 hours. To turn Max Ice back on, press MAX
It is recommended that you clean the ice maker when the “Cleaning
Needed” light is illuminated or 9 months has elapsed, or ice
production decreases signicantly. To clean your ice maker, see
“Ice Maker System” in the “Cleaning” section.
Door Ajar Alarm
The Door Ajar Alarm feature sounds an alarm when the ice maker
door is open for 5 minutes. The alarm will repeat every 2 minutes.
Close the door to turn off. The feature then resets and will reactivate
when the door is left open again for 5 minutes.
Water Filtration System
Installing a Water Filter
1. Purchase a KitchenAid approved water lter.
2. Take the water lter out of its packaging and remove the cover
from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the
cover is removed.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
