SOURCE: how do i get to the sensors for full bin to clean

These units have a real problem with the bin controls. I can't begin to tell you how bad. There are two - for lack of a better term - paddles - that are basically just pushed into the left and right side of the drop area that have small lenses in them with a low level beam that when broken indicates a full bin. You have to reach in from under the bin opening and feel to the left and right, pull the paddles toward the middle and there should be enough slack on the wires to get a good hold of them and clean the lenses with a Q-tip soaked in grapefruit juice. Pop them back in and try them - if that doesn't work (and sorry but most of the time it doesn't) then they will have to be replaced.

Yes, all ice machines have a means of automatic shut down when the bin is full. What is the model number of your machine and your bin?

Is it dumping water or is it pouring water back into the ice bin? if it is pouring water back into ice bin than check your water float to make sure it is not calling for water also make sure the water valve is not letting water seep buy you can cut power to machine and if you here water still entering sump tray then replace water valve. if not then turn machine back on check and see it the water full light is on if so and water is still entering sump tray then replace float switch. If water full light is not on and the sump tray is full of water than remove the water sensor and clean or replace it.

Does dump valve shut off after making ice


is your bin line and dump line tied together if so it could be just ice melting. If not can you here water filling up constantly while machine is off? if so is it running over sump tray into ice bin. if dump valve was stuck open then machine will not make ice.

Remove front cover, remove ice deflector shield, remove the plastic grate in the sump tray that keeps ice from falling into it. Now just behind the water sump tray where ice falls into bin on the right and left side are the bin full sensors you can see where the wire runs through cabinet from controller to them. grab them and pull straight out to the left and right some times you have to wiggle them while pulling. There is plenty of wire on them so you can pull them out and clean.
