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.

clean the ice sensor on either side of the ice platen and just past the water trough. gently pry the sensor on each side out of their plug and work wiring out until you can get to the two led lights and clean scale off. limestone scale builds up and blocks the sensors.

Ice machine will not work. bin full light will not go out! Please help!


there are lens on the bin that shoot a beam across if there is ice it stops the beam and tells it's full. It can also become covered with calcuim and also tells the bin it is full. I would clean these lens gently with a cacium remover. they make products for this. its like an acid that clean off the calcium without damaging your lens.

Where are the bin full sensors located for cme306as-1c bin full light on will not make ice.


It is a set of eyes located in the very back right and left hand side where the ice drops into the bin. Take some ice machine cleaner and wipe down the eyes. You should be able to pull the holders out to get to them better.
