Not sure how to do that? Do I just pull it out of the freezer?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 7 years ago

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
Bucket is on the door
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 7 years ago
open the door, remove the screw on the bottom next to the right side wall, remove the plastic cover and pull the icemaker out and unplug it

No ice Larry. Did the test on the sensors, also took them out and cleaned them. Light stays steady when I close the flap. Water is on and working. Thoughts?

do you have a way to check the temp in the freezer
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
Not really. Is colder better? I had it set on the left side of the B, and have moved it to the center of the C yesterday.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 7 years ago
the colder the better in the freezer for the icemaker to run and make ice
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
Should I turn it even more? C seems to be the coldest but it does allow for it to go a little past. What else could be the issue?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 7 years ago
set it on c and it should be cold enough to make ice faster
