Re: ice bucket broke on my edgestar, IP210TI, ice maker
The solution is correct. I received a free bucket with instructions. I had already repaired and reinforced my bucket where the motor shaft connects so the new bucket is a spare for future use. My latest issue is "ice full" sensor not working. I have to purchase a new circuit board with the sensor already attached. I can replace the sensor if I could find one. Edgestar can't help with this.

There is a sensor at the water outlet which fills the ice-making trough, which appears to be poorly assembled. The fix is quite easy.
Remove the rear cover by removing six screws located underneath the unit at the back and sides. Keep the ice-maker upright at all times, per user instructions.
Once you have gently pried the back cover off, remove the top cover and hinged lid by removing two screws on each side, located underneath the top rim.
With the top off, you can see the water outlet at the back left side. Above the inlet is the offending sensor, which has a metal prong angled down. This prong must touch the water stream to detect the flow, but is probably too high. You can check this by filling the unit with water and turning it on. Watch the water as it fills the trough. With the tip of a screwdriver, bend the metal tip down so that it touches the water stream. Run the unit for a while to test.
If everything is ok, then reassemble and enjoy!
Thanks to jimbo from Tampa who provided the hint for this fix.
The ice bucket is probably cracked we have had three that have all done the exact same thing all different name brands. Just order a new ice bucket. Good Luck and my advice is to purchase a extended warranty on these because its not a matter of if it will break its when. Edgestar lasted the longest it lasted 1yr and 7months.
Mine has been doing this for years. You can check if the door gasket is good and sealing well. If not you can oder one and easily replace it yourself.
Also, if I did not run my generator when I took a short ride ice inside would start to melt while the unit is off, usually around the case perimeter which would drip down to the bottom under the bucket and then when it was put back on it would refreeze under the bucket like a block and make it impossible to remove. I would sometimes just turn it off, put the ice in a ziplock in my frezzer to save it, let it defrost to get the bucket out and dry up the standing water.
