With voice panel

GLACE BAY Snooker ICE Machine User Manual  & troubleshooting 7

3.3 Sequence of Operation
  • Startup: Switch on the power at the control panel after the unit has been connected to the power and the water supply. The unit Cleaning switch will start and function automatically if no problem is present. (Note: Please turn off the power supply in case of thunderstorms or a long period of inactivity.)
  • Once the Working status display is started, the ice machine will automatically make ice until the bin or dispenser is full of ice. When the ice level drops, the machine will resume making ice.
  • Pre-cooling: The water inlet will automatically turn on after the power has been switched on before the water Power switch pump starts. The water inlet valve continues to take in water until the water reaches the specified level and the float valve switches off the water inlet.
  • Caution: Do not place anything on top of the ice machine, including the ice scoop. Debris and moisture from objects on top of the machine can work their way into the cabinet and cause serious damage. Damage caused by foreign material is not covered by warranty.
  • Ice making: The water pump starts up after pre-cooling for 30 seconds.
    Water continuously flows and ice gradually begins to form as a result. The water float valve will open and close automatically to maintain the proper water level.
  • Ice falling: After reaching the required ice-making time, the water pump shuts down and the drain valve closes within 30 seconds. The water valve opens. An entire sheet of ice will slide from the evaporator into the storage refrigerator. This process takes between 1 and 2 minutes. Hands should be away from the storage refrigerator to avoid falling ice.
  • Noise: The ice machine will make noise when it is in ice-making mode. The compressor, fan motor, and water pump all produce some sound. It is also normal to hear some crackling just before the harvest cycle begins. In addition, during the cycle, the harvesting mechanism may click twice as it pushes the ice out and returns to its normal position. The ice harvests as a
    unit or slab, which makes some noise when it hits the bin or dispenser.
    These noises are all normal for this machine.
  • Shutdown: The machine stops when the switch on the control panel is switched off.
  • Automatic Shut-off: Ice will build up in the bin until the sliding board cannot be reset. After the machine has detected that the ice bin is full, the machine will automatically stop. After the ice bin has been emptied enough so that the level switch is reset, the machine will automatically start again.
  • Other Special Stop Conditions:
    o There isn’t any ice falling in 3x consecutive cycles. When this occurs, the machine will stop automatically.
    o Environmental temperatures exceed the prescribed temperature. This will cause the machine to stop automatically.
    o There is no condensed water inside the water-cooled machine. This will also cause the machine to stop automatically.
  • Ice thickness adjustment: There are two methods to adjust the ice thickness. Please choose one according to the machine prompts.
    o Method I, In the ice-making process, you can click the buttons on the panel to adjust the ice thickness. [see diagram below]
    o 1. If ice is too thin, press “Ice +”. Once this button is pressed, the Arabic number on the display will increase by 1, and the ice-making time will be extended by 1 minute.
    o 2. If ice is too thick, press “Ice -”. Once this button is pressed, the Arabic number on the display will decrease by 1, and the ice-making time will be shortened by 1 minute;
    o 3. Ice thickness criteria: the thickness of the hollow part is 1/3 of the entire ice thickness, seen from the side face of ice. The inappropriate thickness of the ice will result in difficulties or failure in ice removal.
    GLACE BAY Snooker ICE Machine User Manual  & troubleshooting 8

o Method II, Should the ice thickness not be satisfactory, the adjusting nut can be pulled up and rotated to the left or right until the desired thickness is achieved.
Once this adjustment is complete, press down the adjustment device until it locks. Note: The adjustment should be limited to one rotation each time until desired thickness is achieved.
