WX-203 146S30, 32 Gal WELL-X-TROL Well Tank Stand low pressure upstairs


There is a schraeder valve at the top of the tank. Check the air pressure with a tire gauge. It should be two psi lower that the cut in pressure. eg: If you have a 40/60 pressure switch, the tank should read 38 psi.If it is lower, charge it up with air. If it loses the air again, the tank needs to be replaced. The gauge at the tank is rarely accurate so I would an outside sillcock pressure gauge to determine your system pressure so you can set the tank pressure properly. Good luck!

Yearly maintenance on Reddy Heaters


If your unit is more than a couple of years old you probably need to change the filter in the back and set the pump pressure. A good indication that you need to do this is if your unit turns on, starts to heat, and almost immediately stops and blows smoke out of the end. The air/fuel mixture is not correct, probably due to a partially clogged filter. These heaters use the air pressure to determine the amount of fuel to pump. Obviously if the pressure is not correct, too little or too much fuel will be pumped. Either situation causes the unit to shut down and smoke.

Both the filters and the gauges to set the pressure can be found at www.reddyparts.com along with a good explanation as to why you need the gauges. If you want your unit to run properly, and efficiently, I recommend purchasing the gauges. They make setting the units easy as well as possible.

The pressure is set by bleed air pressure and must be exactly 3.5 psig. The gauge is the only accurate way to do it. The filters clog and change the pressure. When the difference is enough the unit will not run.

Now with that said there are several other things which you should check yearly. Check the fuel tank for water. Remove any you find by draining the unit. Remove the cover on the right side, as you look at the unit from the front, and remove the circuit board. Check for cracked connections. These things vibrate alot. If you find any broken solder connections resolder them and reattach the board. Until I completely resoldered my board I kept having problems.

That should take care of the unit and get you back to making heat.

Starts in the morning, stays on C for a half hr but blowing warm air. What's wrong?


The dealer doesn't want to be bothered with making a warranty repair. It is not unusual for thermostat operation to change over time, but you might want to get a second opinion from a trusted repairer.

Is there a special trick for setting the fuel level for a 95 kawasaki vn 1500


Hi Edwin, you could have a faulty sending unit or gauge, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left-hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace the gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly. If your fuel gauge registers the incorrect amount of fuel in the tank you can try bending the float arm the necessary amount for a more accurate reading.

My 1970 f250 is having a problem with its fuel gauge. I first assumed it was the pump and replaced it. But the gauge is only accurate if it is full or empty. That was the problem that it had before the...


ground out the power wire from the gauge and it it moves to full and back to empty as you touch and remove the wire , the gauge is ok
then check the grounding for the sender unit in the tank

How do i hook my manifold gauges to my residental condensing unit to check pressures


The AC manifold gauges set have the three chambers: the low pressure chamber (left side), utility chamber (middle), and the high pressure chamber (right side).

When technicians connect the HVAC manifold gauge to the air conditioner units, he connects the low pressure side of air conditioner unit to low pressure gauge side.

If he wants to read the pressure in discharge line he connects the high pressure gauge hose to the air conditioner high pressure side.

The utility port (the middle chamber) is a place you connect the hose to vacuum pump, recovery units or add or remove refrigerant from AC units.

Air conditioning gauges is used to measure air conditioner units pressure within closed-system to evaluate or troubleshoot the AC units. Gauges manifold set is the most frequently used item when it comes to refrigerant or pressure.

Air conditioning gauge set allows the HVAC technician to check AC units operating pressures, transfer AC refrigerant, pressure test system, purge the system with nitrogen, and perform other necessary tasks.

The gauges manifold set includes the hoses, the manifold, the valves, the compound gauge (low pressure gauges) and high pressure gauge.

I have a Reddy Pro 115 BTU kerosene heater the fan starts but shuts off after about 5 to 10 seconds


When you say that the fan starts then stops I assume you also mean that the burner starts and stops. If this is correct and the unit is more than a couple of years old you probably need to change the filter in the back and set the pump pressure. Both the filters and the gauges to set the pressure can be found at www.reddyheat.com along with a good explanation as to why you need the gauges. The pressure is set by bleed air pressure and must be exactly 3.5 psig. The gauge is the only accurate way to do it. The filters clog and change the pressure.

That should take care of the unit and get you back to making heat. Let me know if you need anything else.

Accurate when still display changing inaccurate


You might have air bubbles trapped on surface of transducer. Use soap on it so water sticks to surface, no wax, oil, or grease.
If transducer is mounted inside the boat, you have air trapped between it.
