My ice maker was working perfectly. I shut it down for a couple of months while I was away. When I returned home I cleaned the ice maker with the proper solution. Everything seemed to work. It went to the cleaning cycle then shut down. I started the unit up but now it won't make ice. The compressor cools down the grids but the water is not being pumped up to the grid plate. I was told that it needs a pump and circuit board at a cost of $800.00. Do I need to replace both units or did the pump seize up from not being used? Also I would like the dimensions of the unit. I cannot find them in the manual. The new units seem to be larger than the opening. Thanks Bob

Q:

What part do I need to replace when the ice maker makes too much ice?

A:

In some cases it was found the bin thermistor was mounted to close to the grid. The heat from the grid was causing the thermistor to send a false signal to the board, thus it keeps filling. What can be done for this is to reverse the mounting bracket the thermistor fits in. Before attempting this make sure the power to the ice machine has been turned off. If the thermistor sits above the mounting screw just reverse it so the thermistor is on the down side. If yours is like this already then the bin thermistor #2313633 will need to be replaced. It can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com . If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.

My local parts house said a thermister was a circuit board, I have a GE under counter ice maker, ZDIC150WWWB. making way to much ice after I cleaned it. I can see the thermocouple you call a thermister on the side of the hopper. I will replace it first.
