    Why would you want to? Never tried to don't think you'll have much luck with it.

    The code points to the water sensor. I wanted to test the rest of the machine to see what other parts may be bad. It's a old ice maker and only so many parts will be worth fixing it.

    I found the water level sensor diagnostics for the black and blue controllers

    Was you able to jump or bypass the water level sensor?

    If you pop the water level sensor apart, you can clean the eyes, just like cleaning the bin eyes. The water pump cooling fan tends to blow dust into the water level sensor over time.

    also over time the float stem that holds the float cuts into the sensor housing and the white plastic sump cover. This can jam the float and cause problems. If you see a notch where the float stem is cutting into the sump cover, place a piece of 3/8 copper between the legs of the water sensor and the float stem. glue it down with silicone.

    Thanks craig1,
    When i checked the sensor eyes one of the bottom ones had some rust on it. The board had no shorts in it. I cleaned the best i could but i was still getting a 2 code flash on water problem. I found the voltage reading to check the sensor and will go back with that info.
    Thanks,
    Vince

    I was working on a scotsman today and ran across this in my laptop.

    Did not know if you had this or not.
