Water Connection: A ⅜” compression fitting is located behind the lower panel in the upper righthand corner (from the rear of the machine). You must use a reinforced water line with this unit. Incoming water must have a pressure rating of at least 30PSI (2.1097 kg/cm) and be no greater than 120PSI (8.4388 kg/cm) to operate correctly. You must add an inline water filter with a flow rate of at least 1 gallon (3.78 liters) per minute. Adequate backflow protection might be needed to comply with applicable federal, state, or local codes.
Drain Connection: A ¾” Hose Bib fitting is located on the lower left-hand corner (from the rear of the machine). It is recommended that you use Teflon tape on the threads to help prevent leaks. Only a rigid reinforced hose with at least a ¾” ID can be used to prevent kinking and backflow into the blender chamber. Adequate backflow protection might be needed to comply with applicable federal, state, or local codes.
Loading Ice: Remove the black ice hopper lid from atop the unit (removing the lid will disable the functions of the unit). Carefully pour up to 6 gallons of ice into the ice hopper. Ensure that the ice covers both augers to ensure the most consistent ice dispense. Place the lid back on the top of the unit to re-enable the unit to function. If you are filling an empty ice hopper you should prime the system by putting a blender jar in the blend station and press the ICE button on the control panel.
Making Drinks: Place an empty blender jar in the blend station with the blender lid in place. After programming drinks into the microprocessor, you simply press the drink number (1-64) of the drink, select the size (S, M, or L) and then press GO. The unit will automatically dispense ice and water and then blend. All parameters for drink production can be manipulated to suit your needs.
Dispense Ice Only: This feature will allow you to dispense ice only. Place an empty jar in the blend station and press and hold the ICE button to dispense the desired amount of ice. The ice will dispense as long as the ICE button is held down or up to 25 seconds. Use this feature when your filling an empty ice hopper to prime the system.
Dispense Water Only: By pressing and holding the WATER button you can dispense cold water only as desired. The maximum amount of time the feature will run is 25 seconds.
Run Blender Motor Only: This feature can be used in two ways: as a ramp pulse (gradually increasing speed) or to run a constant speed. To use as a ramp pulse, press and hold the BLEND button until the drink is completed, the motor will stop when the BLEND button is released. To run at a constant speed, select the speed (1-9) and then press and hold the BLEND button. The unit will run until the BLEND button is released or up to 25 seconds.
Due to the size and weight, this will be shipped a pallet via tractor trailer freight.
