Thank you for your question and I understand your concern with your ice maker.

Below is the procedure of testing the ice bin sensor.

  1. Unplug ice maker or disconnect power.
  2. Set the ohmmeter to the appropriate scale.
  3. For the most accurate measurement, immerse the thermistor in ice water for 5 minutes, then use the 32°F/0°C reading in the chart.
  4. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to the two bin thermistor connectors. The meter should indicate as shown in the following chart.
Sensor Temperature Ohm resistance:
0 degrees- 81,715 - 99,874 Ohms
10 degrees -59,422 - 72.627 Ohms
32 degrees - 30,266 - 36,992 Ohms
50 degrees - 18,219 - 22,267 Ohms
70 degrees - 10,280 - 12,564 Ohms
90 degrees - 6,387 - 7,807 Ohms

The service light will flash if the bin thermistor is disconnected or faulty or if the evaporator thermistor/sensor is disconnected or faulty. The evaporator sensor/thermistor should have the same Ohm resistance as the bin sensor/thermistor as shown above. The evaporator thermistor/sensor is clipped to the bottom of the evaporator.

I hope information is helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply.
