    The microphone is tested through the control panel. Go to time and temperature. And look for 10hz and 100hz.
    There will be random numbers in the low to mid hundreds.

    Lift the thickness probe and tap it with your finger a few times. The numbers should jump way up into the 5000 or higher range.
    If this occurs then the thickness probe is fine

    As far as those leds ive never used them i just watch those numbers on the panel

    yes use the panel to check the hertz as well , this machine is really is really a PIA, goes to safe mode , but then switchs off , because I turned it off , this wipes out logged history, so cant operate in safe mode , or does not go to safe mode and stops , or does not harvest and gets several inches of ice there are lots of leds flashing on and off on this board , trying to understand them .

    There are a few indigos that do the random freeze up. Nobody knows the fix.

    I believe the ITP light is a yes or no light...... only lit in harvest.

    Is this a intermittent problem.

    Turning off or disconnecting power will not erase the data log or the event log. They are accessed through the screen or downloaded to a thumb drive and on a computer

    Fwiw there is a ohm test of the ITP that seem to be finding any issues I've seen with them. Also slightly dirty water level probe screws with the machine just like the S model

    I agree. A problem with the water level probe will cause an indigo to do strange things.

    Do you have the service handbook?
    There is a flowchart dealing with ice not releasing

    correct does not wipe out logged history of events , but does remove stored history of the last 5 ice drops , safe mode refers to this history and runs production for 72 hrs until a tech is called. not come across safe mode before . yes have hand book , the 3 probes on the water level high , miser , low , correct ?.

    Common
    High
    Low

    Any "Event" that initiated a safe mode should be in the event log

    If you are in a safe mode the cycle info is useless

    Safe mode just runs timed cycles mimicking the last good cycle in memory

    And I'm lucky enough to service 3 of them.... One of which I installed. Thankfully I managed to dispose of 2 of the customers that I didn't install the machines for. The 3rd one I just go and defrost it once or twice a year
