ok so its making ice, BUT, it keeps making ice if it gets full, you open the door and it falls out and it is to the top of the cutter grid. So I guess that would be the bin thermistor? And why would everything go bad all together?

your on the right track...not sure about the cascading failures. Seems like we might have not been communicating very well on some issues...
at this point, ya have to deal with symptoms as they arise. TodAYS symptoms say bad bin thermistor.

mareedj,  I'm trying to debug a tracking problem.  Would you mind posting the order number that RC would have sent you for the bin thermistor so I can use it to help debug this tracking problem?

 

Domo!
