Went to check out a friends ice maker ( CME506as) and right off I notice the bin full light is on yet the bin is only half full. Have reset, unplugged, tried to disconnect the send and receive plugs from the controller, etc. Any way to bypass these 'electronic eyes' till the new set comes in? He can fill the bin and then shut off the water to keep from jamming it too full if so.
I also notice that the compressor never seemed to come on to keep what ice was in there frozen. Not sure if this is a timed event or a sensor somewhere.
Once reset it would run for a minute and then shut completely off. Is it possible that if the bin is seen as full it doesn't refrigerate?
elect water valve sticks flowing water too sometimes but that is the easy part.. I don't work on these so I just don't know what makes them tick so to speak or how to con it into working for now.
