Information on the Cleaning Cycle - Freestanding Ice Maker
Does the Ice Maker need to be clean and why it should be cleaned.
The ice-making system and the air-cooled condenser need to be cleaned regularly for the ice maker to operate at peak efficiency and to avoid premature failure of system components.
It is recommended that you clean the ice Maker when the "Cleaning Needed" or "Cleaning Cycle" button is illuminated, after 9 months or if ice production has decreased significantly.
Minerals that are removed from water during the freezing cycle will eventually form a hard scaly deposit in the water system. Cleaning the system regularly helps remove the mineral scale buildup. How often you need to clean the system depends on how hard your water is, for harder water, you may need to clean the system as often as every 6 months.
