Water-cooled ice machine installation steps

Step 1: Prepare

Before starting the installation process, have all necessary tools and equipment ready. You’ll typically need a wrench, screwdriver, pipe cutter, level, and drill. Please check the accessories list, which usually includes: Ice scoop, Storage refrigerator drain pipe, Ice machine drain pipe, Condensate drain pipe, Condensate inlet pipe, Ice machine inlet pipe.

Step 2: Choose a suitable installation location

Choose the right location for your water-cooled ice machine. It should be well ventilated, protected from direct sunlight, and have enough clearance to allow air to circulate around the equipment. Also, make sure water and drainage connections are easy to access.

Step 3: Install the Ice Maker

Begin by mounting the ice machine securely to the floor or stable surface using the mounting brackets provided. Use a level to ensure that the equipment is perfectly level, as this is essential for its proper operation.

Step 4: Install the storage refrigerator drain pipe

The drain pipe is located at the bottom of the box machine. Fix it to the drain pipe port with a clamp and install it to the bottom drain outlet. Use a wrench to tighten the connection securely, making sure there are no leaks. If necessary, install a water filter to improve the quality of water entering the machine.

Remove the screws and open the cover, secure the clamp to the drain pipe port, connect it to the ice making drain port, and tighten it to make sure it is secure. One end of the ice making water inlet pipe is connected to the ice making water inlet, and the other end is connected to the tap water inlet. The pipe passes through the reserved opening of the cover plate, the power cord passes through the reserved opening, the buckle is tightened and fixed, and the cover plate is fixed and reset with screws.
