#320910 K-Aid undercounter IM -- KUIS18PNXB0 -- does everything too fast

Posted by Thirstytech on Yesterday, 07:42 AM

Tech line always says "don't replace the board" it's their mantra. I have seen crusty connections for the pump but they always resulted in the pump not running.


Replace the board.

Shine a flashlight by the flapper and see if any gaps are present. A common thing is to have broken/cracked mounting tabs on the door which will cause the flapper to be all loose. They make this kit for that condition: Part number: ap3872692

You can usually tell right when you pull in the driveway if your'e going to be "booting up" for the call.


Kind of makes you appreciate laundry set ups like this one at a local farmers migrant camp, laugh all you want he pays cash every time!

I think on these you have to remove the bottom kick plate to get to the mod/ser tag.

By your statement it does sound like you could have a main control problem. You will only be able to confirm by checking your input and output voltages on the control fir the components not working correctly.

Tough love - but still love. Sage advice.

If it continues to leak with the unit unplugged, replace the water inlet valve.

It may be the motor but, I've encountered a few of these where the fan blade seems to walk back on the motor shaft to the point where the back of the fan blade makes contact with the motor causing the noise.


The fix has been to pull off the fan blade and put a small spacer (usually a copper ferule) on the motor shaft between the blade and motor.

Will it go into diagnostic mode?


I recall working on one of these that would very intermittently stop cooling. It would not go into diagnostic mode, or more accurately it would not go all the way through diagnostics. it ended up being the infamous control board.
