Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Very easy installation.
Tools needed:
- 1/4 inch nut driver or socket & ratchet (or wrench... depending on what you have available.)
- Optional: Flashlight and mirror

1 - I turned the power off.
2 - Grabbing the bottom of the cover (above the ice bin) with both hands, I pulled sharply toward me and the cover was free.
3 - I used the nut driver to remove the screw holding the thermistor in place against the wall of the ice bin.
4 - I used the flashlight and mirror to confirm the placement of the connector.
5 - Used my index finger to depress the locking clip and gently pulled the connector downward.
6 - I attached the new thermistor to the ice bin wall using the nut driver.
7 - I threaded the connector up to the control board and pushed it into place. (This step was the most difficult for me... I had to use the mirror to confirm that I was properly aligned.)
8 - Turned on the power (and shut off the "FAST ICE" option -- may not be available on all ice maker models).
9 - I scooped out a gallon of ice for my tea maker.
10 - A few hours I checked the bin level to confirm that the ice maker was behaving.

All in all, a very simple repair and certainly beats paying someone $200 or $300 for a five minute job.

Ice bin overfilling
I'm an hvac/r technician, and regularly work on ice machines. Begin my pulling the white over beneath the control panel. It snaps in place so pull on the bottom then left out. 1/4 nut driver is all you need, and remove the screw holding the bin thermistor clip to the side. Up to the right , beneath the control panel, behind the plastic panel you previously removed is the mollex connector. Unplug the thermistor and follow instructions in reverse to reinstall.

The ice machine was overfilling with ice
Pull the white cover from the front of the machine. Remove the screw that holds the thermistor body in place. Disconnect the old thermistor. Plug in the new thermistor. Snap the new thermistor body into the cover and reinsert the screw to the sidewall. Replace white cover. Complete!

Ice machine would not turn off when bin was full.
This is the second time for this repair. Seems to occur after cleaning. Make sure you get the right part. Look at the old thermistor for correct model number, they look the same but are different. Turn off machine, unsnap cover plate, unplug old thermistor, remove holding screw with nut driver, replace in reverse order, turn on ice machine. Next time I clean the machine I may remove the thermistor.

Hello,I have a Maytag ice maker model # mim1555zrs0, it won't stop making ice. I cleaned the thermostat but it didn't solve the problem. Should I replace the thermostat? Part # wpw10511923 ?? Thanks
For model number M1M1555ZRS0

Hi Mike, Thank you for the question. I suggest replacing the thermostat first and if this does not fix the issue you may need to replace the Water Inlet Valve,PartSelect Number: PS11738179. Hope this helps!

ICEMACHINE MAKING TOO MUCH ICE. FROM ANSWERS FROM OTHERS SOUNDS LIKE THERMISTOR IS BAD.WHERE IS THERMISTR AND HOW DOES ONE CHANGE IT
For model number KUIC15PHZS0
PartSelect logo
Hello Ron, Thank you for the question. The Thermistor is also called the Bin Temperature Sensor. You will need to pull the white cover off from the front of the machine. Remove the screw that holds the thermistor in place and unplug the plastic connector and reverse the steps to install. We hope this helps!

How to replace the thermistor in a self standing ice maker
PartSelect logo
Hello Cheryl, thank you for your question. Once you locate the thermistor, it would simply unplug from the wire harness and the new thermistor would plug in and be remounted into its holder. If you would like to know where this part is located in your model, please resubmit a new question with the model number information. I hope this helps!

My 6 yr old Kitchen Aid ice maker stopped making ice. Ice plate gets frosty but the recirculation pump is not circulating water. I replaced the pump and that didn’t help, because the pump never gets the signal to start pumping water. Visual inspection of wire harness inside icebox looks good. The unit beeps every two minutes like it’s sending a start signal to the pump but the pump never cycles on. Any ideas on what and how to troubleshoot next?
For model number KUID508ESS1

Our unit is not making ice. Water is running over the freeze plate but not freezing. Runs a clean cycle normally. It almost seems to be stuck in the defrost cycle to drop the ice on the wire cutters.
For model number KUIC18NNZS0
PartSelect logo
Hi Matt, Thank you for your question. If the evaporator chill plate and heat exchanger is not making ice, check to make sure the compressor is coming on. If the compressor is running the issue may be with the sealed system and it will need to be checked by an appliance repairperson. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Ice maker is not making ice
For model number KUIX305ESS1

Hi Cecil, thank you for the question. We would recommend checking the water tubes and the filter for clogging. If these are not the issues, then we would recommend checking the water inlet valve, part number PS11765823, to fix the issue. Glad to be of help!
