Ice bin is nearly empty-Ice machine starts up, full bin light flickers, then stay lit solidly. freeze light comes on and machine starts pumping water, then the compressor starts. Runs for about 30 seconds and then everything shuts off.
Full bin light stays on. Acts like the bin is full.
Service manual is scarce on details about testing this sensor
Is the bin sensor whacked?
I've never changed one before, and I looked at the spot where the ice drops and it looks like the sensor is an IR type but it's covered with a layer of calcium deposits. I tried scraping the crap off, but no difference.
I also disconnected the sensor wires at the control board(blue) and it does the same thing.
I'm guessing I need a new bin sensor assy.
