    U-Line Ice Maker

    I was given a U-line ice maker and it was in pieces. Although I was able to get the ice maker mechanism
    re-installed, I'm not sure where to mount the thermostat bulb. Any answers?

    U-Line Ice Maker

    I was given a U-Line ice maker in pieces. While putting it back together, I notice the thermostat bulb
    just hanging there. I'm not sure where to place it. Should it go in the bin, attach to the mechanism or attach to the evaporator? Any answers?

    How does the machine shut itself off?

    Possibly a bin switch. Stops ice production when ice reaches it.
    ckartson
    I didn't write the book I just read it!

    It sounds like the bin thermostat as ckartson said. The CLR series machines use them.

    I believe the sensing bulb from the thermostat comes in through the back and goes into a hole in the ice mold (called the "Mold & Heater Ass'y".

    Thank you for your input. I just ordered a new ice maker mechanism and will look for that hole.
