I have two SideKIC sous vide units and the pump has died in both of them. Does anyone know the model number of the pump that is used, I'd like to try and replace them. They are both out of warranty so going that route won't help unfortunately.

I would not bother. If both died, replacement will not last either.


Just get a separate pump and see how long the heater will last. The heat will need fast moving water around it.

The SideKIC was poorly made. I had two that died in short time. Luckily got my money back. Save your money and consider an Anova

I was unable to find a replacement part when mine died, so I wound up switching to the Anova.
