Initial complaint : No ice production.

Initial findings: After machine is turned on it produces 1 nice slab of ice. Subsequent slabs are wafer thin.

Things tried: Unplugged evaporator thermistor. With that the unit produces for 12 min and goes into harvest for 4 min. Per techsheet the unit is supposed to produce for 25 min and go into harvest for 4 min with disconnected thermistor.

Replaced evaporator thermistor, reservoir sensor and mainboard.

With those parts replaced unit produces 1 nice slab of ice then fills and drains constantly without going into production mode.

Unplugged evaporator thermistor then unit constantly repeats harvest cycle without going into production mode.

Waiting for help with a bottle of rum in my hand.

Thanks

Did you check the condenser fan? It seems to me like the condenser is getting too hot.

...the link for the manual you sent me is for an older model....i agree that it is similar to the appliance i am working on, but this one is a newer model and has electronic water valve , waterlevel sensor in reservoir and so on. if you have the manual for the newer model i would greatly appreciate the link for it.

similar to Whirlpool / Kenmore KUIA15NRHS11 (buy Whirlpool replacement parts) :whistling:
