506 Undercounter Ice Maker Water Use & Ice Production

Core Issue:

  • How much water does Undercounter Ice Maker Model 506 use per day?
  • How much ice does model 506 make per day?
  • How much ice does model 505 or 505ISC make per day?
  • How much ice does the bin on a model 506 hold?


Model 506 Undercounter Ice Maker uses up to 25 gallons of water per day and can produce up to 46 pounds of ice per day in 70°F ambient temperatures.
  • Ice production will vary based on how much ice is used.
  • The ice in a model 506 icemaker continuously melts so use and ambient temperature factor into how much ice is made each day.
  • The ice bin holds 35 lbs. of ice.
  • If the icemaker has not been cleaned recently, cleaning may help improve ice production speed.
