Hello All,

I need some help diagnosing my KitchenAid model KUIC15NRTS1 ice maker's problems.

If I turn off the machine and let it sit overnight then turn it back on it will make ice like normal for about one bin full, then stop. On the last slab, it will harvest it like normal, and the compressor turns back on as if it were starting to freeze the next slab, but the recirculation pump never turns on to circulate the water over the chiller surface (the reservoir empties and fills as usual, so it is not that there is no water for the pump to circulate). It will sit like this for hours (until I turn it off). If I then turn it off and back on, it will usually produce one more slab like normal, harvest it, and then stop just as above.

I cannot figure out what is causing this issue. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to diagnose this without just starting to replace components? There are no error lights present.

Thanks in advance!
