How to Check the Bin Sensor on Your Whirlpool Ice Maker
The ice level sensor is located on the right side wall of the ice storage bin and monitors the ice levels. If the sensor is blocked or dirty it could cause the ice maker to stop ice production.
Check the following:
- Make sure that the bin sensor is not blocked by the ice scoop or any other items that may be in the bin. We don't recommend storing anything in bin, other than the ice that is produced and the supplied ice scoop. NOTE: Remember to store the ice scoop in the holder to avoid blocking the bin sensor.
- Check to make sure the sensor is not dirty or has a mineral build up. The sensor can be cleaned with a soft towel and warm soapy water.
