Ice-O-Matic GEMU090 85 lbs/day Undercounter Pearl Ice Machine is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Machine This ice machine is exactly as advertised, Makes tons of sonic style ice, best purchase I have made in a while. It is actually quieter than the ice maker that it replaced. My only caution is to check the unit before you sign off with the shipper. I didn't because the box looked fine from the outside, after I installed the unit and took off the plastic that protects the stainless steel there was a dent in the door from the package strapping. Prima warns you about this and I recommend that you check every unit before signing off with the shipper. I would highly recommend this machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product and good service I bought this unit from Prima Supply because it was the best price and service I could find. the unit was shipped timely with all components. The unit is small, compact and relatively quiet. The ice is chewable "Sonic" ice as advertised. The only problem I had was the installation of the optional pump. The included installation instructions were very detailed on disconnecting the internal components and removing the cabinet for installation of the pump. About half way through, I realized that the removal of the cabinet was completely unnecessary. All that was needed is to remove the back cover, front bottom cover, and side access panel. The pump installed easily. Better installation instructions would have save a lot of time and trouble. Once I put everything back together, it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted After much research, we ordered this machine as we wanted the soft ice. It was a bit of a pain to install the pump, but I figured it out. The instructions were more of a reminder to someone that may have done it once before rather than for someone that will only do it once. I had to figure out which panels to remove. The actual install was painless, but we planned ahead for the water and drain lines. It was churning out ice within minutes once we turned it on. The ice is everything we wanted - the soft chewable kind that mixes well with drinks. Soft drinks, that is. For adult beverages I still use the cube ice as this stuff dilutes the drink too much. The pump runs often for a couple seconds at a time which is something to get used to. Overall, it works great. Time will tell if it's reliable or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has been a great little machine so far We have been using the machine about 2 weeks and it has worked perfectly for what we ordered it for. I would suggest an automatic arm to level the ice so the sonic sensor will not stop production until the bin is completely full. Overall a huge help with best product presentation for customers in my caf. THANKS...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our sonic ice machine! We bought the ice machine about a month ago. We love everything about it. The service with delivery was smooth. A plumber installed for us. I'm sure you could do it yourself but we wanted to make sure it was done correctly. It began making ice right away. I have another ice maker in my wet bar area and I have not used it since we received the new machine. All of my neighbors love it also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes great "Sonic" style ice Prima made it easy to purchase this ice machine. Great price and communication. Installation was fairly easy. Good looking machine. Makes plenty of ice and replenishes the bin fast. My only concern is the required service/cleaning appears to be more involved than other models.

Does this machine continually mae ice and drain water out as new ice is being made

Asked by: Ladee
This will continue to make ice until the bin is full (up to 22 lbs) and the pause production until there is room for more ice in the bin. As the ice melts the water will drain out and more ice will be produced.

Do I need the pump in order for ice maker to work?

Asked by: Kremedog
If you do not have a floor drain, you would need a KPU090 pump kit for this ice machine. With a floor drain no pump is required.

Can this unit be installed outside, understanding that the temperature may limit ice production?

Asked by: ScottThornton
Before installing this unit outside, please contact Ice-O-Matic at 800-423-3367 about what this would do to the warranty on your unit. It is definitely not designed to be installed outside and depending on your climate, could cause significant damage and production problems.
