Kitchenaid Refrigerator Error Codes

Kitchenaid Refrigerator Error Code 15E

Error code 15E on your KitchenAid refrigerator indicates a problem with the ice room sensor. This sensor plays a crucial role in monitoring the conditions of the ice compartment. The error suggests that the sensor is either not functioning correctly or is providing inaccurate readings.

  1. Loose Sensor Wires: The wires connecting the ice room sensor may be loose or improperly connected.
  2. Faulty Sensor: The ice room sensor itself may be malfunctioning and needs attention.
  3. Wire Harness Issues: The wire harness connecting various components, including the sensor, may have faults or damage.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Inspect Sensor Wires:
    • Open the refrigerator compartment and locate the ice room sensor. It’s typically situated near the ice-making mechanism.
    • Check for any visibly loose or disconnected wires connected to the sensor.
  2. Reconnect Loose Wires:
    • If you find any loose wires, carefully reconnect them to the sensor. Ensure a secure and snug fit to prevent future issues.
  3. Check for Sensor Damage:
    • Inspect the ice room sensor for any signs of physical damage or wear. If visible issues are detected, professional assistance may be required for sensor replacement.
  4. Examine Wire Harness:
    • Inspect the wire harness that connects to the ice room sensor and other components. Look for any frayed wires or visible damage.
  5. Resolve Wire Harness Issues:
    • If faults are found in the wire harness, they should be addressed promptly. Repair or replace damaged sections of the harness.
  6. Reset the Refrigerator:
    • Power cycle the refrigerator by unplugging it for a few minutes and then plugging it back in. This can sometimes reset the error code.
