Manitowoc Cuber Model QD1802A
Incoming power terminal. This unit is rated 208/230 1PH and 28.8 amp min circuit. It is on a 30 amp breaker.
I do not trust plastic terminal blocks over 20 amps and here is the reason why and what happens when it gets too hot.
See how nice it marks the top of the ice maker?
See what happens if you don't catch it in time?
How about this view?
Can you see what the terminal block (what is left of it) it up against?? Is it the terminal block mounting screws? Yep!
They said the flames were 5 or 6 feet high but the ceiling tile was fire resistant. The staff grabbed the fire extinguisher and put it out then called me at 10 PM last night.
Yeah.. Happy New Years! They have 3500 people coming tonight for their celebration and only the one ice maker left you saw in the first picture. Ohhh Boyyyy..
We pulled the terminal block out of the other one and tied it together with wire nuts.
Sooo, what those plastic terminal blocks boys!
That’s what happens when the Bean Counters get involved! “Yea we can save 25 cents per unit".
Just 1 question. 30 Amp 2 #10 wires. Shouldn’t that be a red bug nut?
