I think I might have a unique problem. Searched and came up empty.

Noticed lack of ice and found some troubleshooting steps. Ran test 59 and failed so I replaced the ice maker unit WPW10764668.

Now it is still not making ice. I can fill the ice tray with water using test 45. I can harvest the ice using test 57. Bin sensors test good Solid LED and test 15 says bin is not full.

It has been 7 days and no ice unless I force it with 45 & 57.

Any ideas?

Bought ice cream for the 1st time in a while. Noticed it was staying pretty soft. Tossed a thermometer in there and it was 17F. Found the freezer coils completely iced over.

Thawed it all out and things are working great. Hoping the cause was just kid left the freezer open. Keeping an eye on it for now.
