Before installing the units in closed cupboards cognizance must be taken of the fact that the units will not operate in conditions of high ambient heat. Please take precautions to ensure sufficient airflow around the machines, both the front and sides. The air intake grills are located on the front and discharge on the front and sides of the units.
Ideal conditions for the operation of the machine are 21 deg. Ambient and 10 degree water. Any increase in these temperatures will reduce the daily production capacity of the units, as specified.

Professional installation and commissioning is strongly recommended for plumbed in models, in support of the warranty policy.
The following on-site services are required within one meter of the location of the unit.
Our quote does not cover the provision of these services.

We strongly recommend the installation of a water filter to your ice machine; this not only ensures pure clean water into the machine, but also reduces future maintenance costs and extends the life of the machine.
Per machine one filter cartridge has a life expectancy of approx. 12 months.

This should be done at least every three months.
Regular Servicing will lengthen the overall life of your ice maker.
