There is no melting or recycling of ice in this unit with the built-in freezer. The ice produced will go into the removable plastic bin and the machine will stop producing. It can produce two full bins of ice each day if the fridge is indoors, and it will make about one full bin if it is outdoor. Once the bucket is full it won’t continue making ice, will be stopped by the arm. A single bucket has a 6 lb. capacity. And the arm is released as you remove the ice bucket.
There is no need for draining and you just need to do it when you defrost it manually. You will need to defrost it every few months or so. You can use it outdoors but there will more temperature fluctuations and their warranty applies only to indoor installations.
