Electrolux ice maker (upper part of french door) refrigerator ice dispenser has the temperature sensor/tube that is housed with a small plastic/styrofoam piece has come out of the ice maker and is hanging down next to ice cube tray. I cannot find where or how to put this part back into ice maker? I have searched for hours without any photos or help instructions. My ice maker works properly as all diagnostics have been verified, just don't know what to do with this hanging sensor.

Appreciate any help,

The sensor or thermistor attaches to the bottom of the plastic ice cube mold. It has small catches to hold it on and in many cases will fall back off. I had one fall and when customer removed ice bin it pulled and broke thermistor wires and shorted out the main control board. I would recommend replacing the whole icemaker (mold and motor assy.) which runs around $125 if I remember correctly.
