When you say the unit runs for 15 minutes then stops.

Do you mean it just stops making noise or that everything including the indicator lights also turn off?

And when it does stop how do you get it to start back up again?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Lights turn off and it stops. To start again I have to hit cycle and start

ok so your issue is with in the electronic control board software.

Have you tried to REBOOT the electronic control board yet?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No, how would I do that?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

ok Let`s unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 5 minutes then plug it in and see if the unit will run and stay running.

And I do realize this will take time to see if it will stay running or not!!
