KUIS15NRTB2 KitchenAid icemachine

4 posts in this topic

Have above titled icemachine running recirc pump and drain pump, but no compressor.  After drain pump kicks in can hear click from relay board.

 

If unplug icemachine from drain pump, and plug directly into house outlet the unit will run.  We removed drain resivoir, and flushed out and cleaned screw "sensors".  Reinstallled resivoir same thing, unit go through purge and fill, but then "click" unit just keeps restarting.  Of course whirlpool doesn't provide any info on the drain pump although it being pretty simple.  Not sure why unit works if not plugged into drain pump. Outlet on pump shows solid 121 volts properly polarized and grounded.

 

 

Any ideas?

Those drain pumps have a safety inside if the drain hose becomes clogged the unit will not run. Make sure the hose and drain is clear. Otherwise it sounds like something is wrong with the drain pump and that pump is pretty expensive.

There is a screen washer inside the middle connecting hose that can be cleaned.  Kind of a bear to get to and reassemble but should restore good flow.
