If this is a thermistor and not a thermostat you will have to remove the wires from the board and find a legend of values for the thermistor at a given temperature (usually @ 32' which a glass of ice water will do) If the reading is correct then your problem is in the board either not putting out the voltage or not picking the voltage back up.

Or not likely but possibly it could have been a film covering the connection when you removed the wires. Retry and if it still doesn't work its board time.

How do you get an icemaker in a subzero 650 refrigerator to stop making ice when the bin is full?


There should be a metal bar that flips when it hits the ice at a certain level. It should stop automatically. There is a problem with the sensor.

The ice maker stopped making ice one day


A typical problem with these is some type of bin sensor that tells the icemaker that the bin is full. it is usually some type of "arm" that shuts it off when the ice rises to a level that raises the "arm" to "kill" the icemaker

Where do I turn ice maker off and on? I have misplaced owner's manual on model gss251frf ww.


Ice makers make ice until the ice bin is full, and as you use the ice, it replaces what is used. This is accomplished by a wire that measures the amount of ice in the bin. The wire moves up and drops the ice and then moves down to measure the ice. If the bin is full, the wire will be held in the "up" position which turns the ice maker off. You can manually lock the wire in the up position and it will never make ice. Releasing the wire will start the ice making process.

How do I control the amount of ice in the freezer? When I open the freezer door ice pours out onto the floor and in the freezer itself.


Hello,

That is going to a internal problem in the icemaker,is has a sensor that when it detects that the ice bin is full its supposed to cut off the icemaker so it doesnt overflow and continue making ice such as your experiencing. By replacing the icemaker it will shut off when the storage bin is full.

My KUIC15prts2 is producing way too much ice. What do I need to check to make it stop?


there is a bin thermister, when you open the door look on the right side of the bin and you will see a white (L) shaped bar thant has wires connected above the cutter grid. the bar (bin thermister) is what senses the ice level, when ice reaches it the machine would turn itself off. replace this bin thermister. the part# is 2313633

Ice maker stopped working


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

Bin Full light stays on all the time


This is usually an indication that the photo eyes are probably dirty. They "See" across the opening where the ice drops through. If they are dirty, it registers as a fill machine.
A bin stat can cause the same problem.
The eyes and sometimes be a major problem finding them getting to them. On smaller machines like this one, it's hard to get your hands on them.
Good Luck and hope this helps.

U-Line undercounter frost free ice maker refrigerator


All units made today have defrost timers to clear ice from the evaporator. Some of the ice sublimates...turns directly into humidity in the air in the box. It re-condenses in the ice tray area. It is possible that nothing is wrong other than excessive opening of the bin area or the defrost timer is running slow and staying on too long. You may also be consuming the ice too slowly. Can you either change the amount of ice in the bin by adding something to simulate part of the ice content or shut off ice production against low demand?
