Scotsman® FAQs

  • Will your products accept a custom panel?
    Yes! All Scotsman residential ice machines accept custom panels.
  • If I have a custom panel made for my older model DC33/DCE33, can I reuse it on one of your newer SCC or SCN models?
    Yes, but you would need to buy accessory KDFR.
  • Some ice cubes are smaller than others. Is that normal?
    Because our units have insulated storage bins that are not refrigerated, it is normal to see the cubes change shape and get smaller inside the bin.
  • Should I use a filter when installing one of your icemakers?
    Yes. We recommend installing an in-line water filter. In-line water filters are available at most hardware stores.
  • How do I know whether to buy a gravity model or pump model?
    You can only use a gravity model when a drain is accessible in the floor or below the floor where the unit will be installed. Pump models are mostly used in high rises and homes that are on a slab. Pump models are commonly installed where the only drain available is in a nearby sink and the water must be pushed up.
  • I heard that Scotsman Ice Machines are loud. Is this true?
    Ice machines by their design and very nature create some level of noise. The Scotsman Nugget is one of the quietest ice machines available.
  • Where can I locate warranty information for my Scotsman ice machine?

  • Where can I access the cleaning video for my Brilliance® Nugget Ice Machine?
