So you're ready to start shaving those tasty Snow Cones? Before you get started with your S700 machine, open your box and you should find the following parts:
To begin assembling your Snow Cone Machine, ensure that the appliance is switched off and not plugged into an electrical outlet. Start by placing the machine base/stand on a flat sturdy counter or table. Go ahead and insert the drive gear (motor unit) into the base by aligning the parts. The interior bowl, gear hoop, bushing and exterior bowl and blade will already be assembled for you. Simply align the bowl unit with the drive gear and gently press down to secure.
Place an empty bowl (not supplied) on the base of the unit just below the exterior bowl. This will be used to collect the snow as it's shaved. Fill the interior bowl with fully frozen household ice cubes. Most ice made from residential ice makers will work. Some commercially bagged ice may work as well. However, if your ice is too hard and has been in the freezer too long, you may need to allow the ice cubes to temper or thaw for a few minutes before shaving. Allowing the ice to temper, the machine will produce a fluffier snow, which is a common practice with commercial ice shavers as well.
Now it's time for the fun part! Align the clear lid on top of the bowl unit while lining up the lidís flange. When you're ready to go, turn the lid counter clockwise until the flange activates the safety switch. This process does two things. First, it allows the lid to lock in place and prevent injury. It also triggers the motor and will begin producing snow cone ice!
To stop shaving ice, turn the lid clockwise to deactivate the safety switch. Unplug the ice shaver from the power supply after each use.
Finally, you can transfer your ice to a snow cone cup and add your favorite Premium Syrup from HawaiianShavedIce.com!
Cleaning your snow cone maker is a breeze! Dismantle the appliance in reverse order of the procedure described for assembly. While cleaning, carefully pay attention to the stainless steel blade. Avoid all contact with the blade to prevent injury to yourself or others. Avoid using abrasive detergents or cloths. The motor unit may be cleaned with a slightly damp cloth but do not soak or immerse the motor unit in water or other liquid. All the machine parts other than the motor assembly may be washed in warm water with mild soap and rinsed with water. Do not wash any of the parts or motor in a dishwasher. Dry all of the parts paying particular attention to the blade before putting the appliance away.
Hawaiian Shaved Ice has designed this machine to make changing your blade easy! We suggest changing your blade every year. Your machine comes with one blade but we offer additional blades when it's time for a replacement. Always inspect your current blade before changing, taking note of the way it's installed will help you when installing your new blade. To remove the blade, unscrew the top nut in the interior bowl. Gently remove the interior bowl to expose the blade. Use a phillips head screwdriver to loosen the two screws and slide the blade up into the exterior bowl. Once your blade is removed, carefully place your new blade in from the top of the exterior bowl down the open blade area. Slide the notches in the blade under the washers and screw heads. Adjust your blade so the bottom aligns with the bottom of the angled blade support. For smoother ice, adjust your blade down and for a courser ice adjust your blade slightly higher. Finally, tighten your screws firmly, re-install the interior bowl and fasten with the nut.
