    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!

    How to replace the thermistor in a self standing ice maker
    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!

    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
    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!

    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
    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!

        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.

        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.
