Question about Kitchenaid KUIC15PLTS 15 Inch Wide 25lb Cap Architect II Left Hinged Icemaker Stainless Steel
Kitchenaid ice maker kuic15plts1 plug in and the icemaker starts and minute later you hear a click and it shuts down. The drain pump is still working, but the light inside go off and it will not do anything. You can wait a half hour after unplugging it and it will turn on for a few minutes and then shutdown again. Problem has been on again and off again for a year or more. At one time the drain line was crimped when it was put back under the counter. It might have burnt something out and now it is causing it to turn off more.

J, sounds like your dispensor flapper is not closing properly and you are drawing warm air up into the ice bucket. This model had an issue where the flapper pin holder was part of the housing and would break off. They have a kit now that fixes that problem. The only other thing it could be would be low freezer temps or it's staying in defrost too long. With out being there, I would start with the dispensor flapper. Check it out and post back.. Catriver.

S, the interior light is timed. If you leave the door open for more than 5 minutes, it'll shut off automatically. Close the light switch manually (at the top up there) and hold for 5 seconds. After you release it, you may see a red LED where the clean light is... disregard for now.
Now replace all of the hoses you removed for cleaning. These can be cleaned using the "cleaning method" posted and labeled on the inside of you IM door.
Now go get some of this, or something similar and follow the cleaning instructions.
As an aside here... I ran a service call for a guy who did exactly what you did, except that he chose to go to Home Depot and get all new tubing. (!!!!) Well, the tubing didn't fit and even if it di it was routed improperly. Then he called me to come fix it.
Close to $200 later everything was back to normal. All he had to do in the first place was to maintain his IM like it was a swimming pool. Get the right chemicals and use them as instructed on the label.
Please don't misunderstand. I'm not scolding or anything like that... it's just that sometimes the simplest approach is the best approach. Your high dollar IM is a complicated and computer controlled piece of equipment, when you start pulling the guts out, the "brain" has a difficult time interpreting what your doing, that's all.
Let us know how it goes. If there are any additional symptoms, please let us know immediately.

Replace the icemaker . The laser receiver (on right side ) is supposed to blink twice then pause then twice repeatedly .Normal. Also clean the coils under fridge .
