    My H22A has the sensor on the front water neck. I have noticed that the 5th gens don't have this sensor. I do not want this sensor like the 5th gens, so what exactly is different? Is that sensor located somewhere else on the 5th gens? What will I have to do exactly to get it to work? The motor...
