Customer Q&AAsk a Question

Why is a water filter automatically added to my cart with this item?
The use of poor quality feed water may void your equipment's warranty. Therefore, it’s important that your water be filtered to the highest quality and a compatible water filter will be included when you add this piece of equipment to your cart. You may remove the filter from the cart prior to purchase.
My ice machine has been shut down, or not in use since the COVID-19 shutdowns, how should I restart it?
If your ice machine has been shut down or not in use for a prolonged period time, please reference your machine's user-manual for a restart procedure, often called “Winterization." Please reference your user manual or contact customer service with any questions.
What does the "T" or "F" mean in the new Manitowoc model numbers?
This indicates that the unit is using R290 refrigerant, a more eco-friendly refrigerant. Although the new models are identical to the older models, Manitowoc has phased out the production of units without R290 refrigerants in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations. Refrigerant Regulations.
Will this ice machine meet my business’s ice demand?
Every business type has unique demands for ice. If you have any questions about how much ice you’ll need please reference our Types of Ice Machines buying guide.
How do I ensure my new Manitowoc product’s warranty is activated?

Customer Reviews


Extremely happy with the Manitowoc Ice Maker. Instruction book was easy to follow for installation, ice adjustment, and bin fullness adjustment. It is high quality stainless steal on the top and all sides, except the back. Looks great by itself or fits nicely under a counter top. It can fill the bin in about 12 hours. Only negative is that the ice builds up at the drop point, so to fill the bin occasionally you need to push the ice further back in the bin. The included plastic ice scoop is functional but for a lot of use, I don't anticipate it will last long. It is a commercial unit, so it is a bit loud if you plan to use in a residential setting.

We love this ice maker and it installs easily. The only issue we had was we thought it came with a drain pump. After reading the Spec. we realized it was optional and you could purchase separate. We ended up buying one and it works perfect now.

Ceciley S. from Oakwood Steel Fabrication on 02/06/2019

Awesome ice machine! It never runs out and is always ready to go for us with great clear ice. Will be buying another one very soon.
