Customer Question
Ice maker is making too...
Ice maker is making too much ice. Ice bin is on the door. Checked for the
sensor light, and it doesn't seem to be doing anything. It is not on at all.
Also the bottom hydrator drawer in the refrigerator section is freezing food.
I turned the control down on the meat drawer. Could have gotten changed
as I cleaned the drawer yesterday.

The only thing that can cause the icemaker to make too much ice is the emitter boards. This is the board behind the sensor light so below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace to fix the issue.
