What type of water should I add to my portable ice maker?

Please refer to the below water requirements when using your portable ice maker.

  • Only use potable water or water suitable for drinking.
  • The temperature of the water should be between 51°F and 90°F.
  • Change the water in the water reservoir every 24 hours to ensure a reasonable hygiene level.

Please Note: The "Add Water" light relies on an electronic sensor that may not detect purified, filtered, reverse osmosis, or distilled water. You may need to add a pinch of salt to the water to increase the mineral content. A small amount of salt will be undetectable to taste however will add a detectable level of mineral content for the add water sensor to properly detect water in the reservoir.
