Install the Hatsuyuki HC-8E on a sturdy, level, and waterproof surface. Be sure to use a grounded, three-prong 115V electrical receptacle and keep water away from the electrical portions of the machine. To operate the ice shaver, use an ice scoop and fill the hopper with cubed ice. Next, close the lid and turn the blade adjustment knob counter clockwise until it comes to a stop. Flip the on/off switch on the front of the machine or easily step on the optional foot pedal. The shaved ice will start dispensing immediately. Slowly turn the blade adjustment knob clockwise until you reach your desired ice consistency. Simply catch the shaved ice in your desired serving container, add your favorite Hawaiian Shaved Ice syrup and complete it with a spoon straw or a plastic spoon. To stop shaving ice, remove your foot from the foot pedal or simply move the on/off switch to off.
To clean your machine, first, disconnect the power cord from the socket. Loosen the two white-headed screws which secure the ice outlet chute. Pull downward to remove. Next, unscrew the four white-headed screws on the top cover and remove. The top cover cannot be removed unless the lid is fully open. Go ahead and pull out the lid connecting shaft and remove the lid. Grip the clear plastic water-seal cover by this bottom edge and pull out and up to remove. If it's too tight and you struggle to remove it by hand, pry up carefully with a screwdriver. Remove the screws which attach the clear plastic rotary hopper to the metal rotary hopper. Remove the plastic rotary hopper. Unscrew and remove the large nut which attaches the metal rotary wing to the shaving case. Lift the metal rotary wing upward to remove. Remove the three screws which fasten the conical shaving case and life upward to remove. Remove the two screws which attach the shaver blade assembly. Simply wipe down the machine parts and with a clean, dry, soft cloth. You may use a damp cloth with diluted dish detergent. Do not clean any parts with harsh detergents, solvents or abrasive cleaners. You can use the same solution for the exterior of the machine. To re-assemble, simply follow the above instructions in reverse order.
We recommend changing your blade every 2,000-4,000 servings. One spare blade is included with your machine and additional blades may be purchased when adding the machine to your shopping cart. To change the blade, first, disconnect the power cord from the socket. Loosen the two white-headed screws which secure the ice outlet chute. Push the chute toward the rear of the machine so the screw heads line up with the key-hole openings in the chute. Pull downward to remove. Next, remove the two screws holding the blade and pull out the blade making sure not to cut yourself. Install the new blade and tighten the screws which hold the blade in place. Ensure the blade tip is parallel to the opening of the conical shaving case. Reassemble the parts in reverse order as above.
