Automatic clarifying water filter

Hello,
I bought my home a year ago. We are on well for our water. The Kenmore Solid State Automatic Clarifying Filter will NOT quit flushing and it is alot of water. I have to keep shutting off the water to the house and even unpluging the thing won't stop it from flushing. Is there some kind of a manual you can send me online to set it? The previous gardener used to set it and I can't figure the thing out. I got it to quit flushing again, but it looks like in about 7 hours it will flood the driveway again..YIKES..please HELP ME!!
thanks.

SOURCE: Everything freezes in the refrigerator

Your damper that controls the air to the fridge side is stuck open. It can be caused by moisture getting on it and freezing it so it wont close or by a failure in the electrical circuit that controls it. There was a service bulletin from about 3-4 years ago about defective control assemblys. I have replaced several and as far as I know Frigidaire is still replacing some of them for free if they fall under the model and serial numbers that were affected.
You can tell if it is frozen by turning the controls off and thawing the damper at the upper left rear of the fridge section with a hair dryer.. After you have it thawed out, turn the controls back on and you should hear the damper door motor running. Keep your thermometer in it and check it after a while and see if it shuts off before it freezes.
Post back with the complete model and serial numbers and I will try to locate the service bulletin at my shop computer tomorrow.

SOURCE: flooding! Help

This is usually a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. The pressure switch is located in the operator console behind the load (or water) level knob. It is cylindrical in shape and has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. In many cases, the only problem is that the air hose has come loose and fallen off the fitting on the pressure switch. All you have to do is reattach it. HINT: placing a small zip tie around the air hose where it connects onto the pressure switch will create enough resistance to keep the hose from vibrating loose again. Just a snug fit will do. Over tightening can break the fitting on the pressure switch. You will need to open the console and inspect it. To open the console, it comes off in a few different ways depending on the year and model of the washer:

1. If you have removable end caps on the console, they simply pry off by lifting from the the back exposing a screw under either end. Remove the screws and the console lifts up.

2. If the end caps do not come off, place a putty knife in the front corner of either end of the console where it meets the washer top and push in while lifting up. This depresses a retaining clip and the console will lift up.

3. Some consoles have a screw located on either side in the back that you need to remove and it will then lift up.

Be careful when you lift the console. There are small plastic hinges holding it in place and they can break if you aren't careful. Place the console in its resting position by laying it over the back of the washer. The pressure switch will be easily accessible. Double check the hose like I previously stated and double check to make sure all the electrical connections are in place.

If you check the switch and find that everything is in place as it should be, you may have to replace the switch. Post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the rim of the washer tub opening) and I can track down a part number for you.

I hope this helps.

Sounds like a bad batch of filters. Stop using them and return them to Brita for analysis and replacement

Follow the main water supply line. It goes to a solenoid valve which is normally located front left side under the dishwasher.

1. Turn off the main circuit breaker for the dishwasher.
2. Turn off Water supply to the dishwasher.
3. Remove lower front panel.
4. Remove Water supply line from solenoid.
5. remover wire connections from solenoid.
6. Remove 2 mounting screws from solenoid.
7. Take solenoid valve out.
8. Look inside the valve where the water supply line was connect to, You will be able to see the filter. it is just a screen and you can easily clean it.

Good Luck

Water not clear


cloudy water is mainly due to poor pool maintainence.
Your purchase of the salt water system only helped you with not needing to pour chlorine in or float tablets.
You will still need to use chemecals.
I use a good stabilizer to hold the chlorine level longer
I use a non foaming algecide once a week
I also use a water clarifying product once a week

Now on to the clouds :-)

cloudy water is because of not enough sanitizer mixwd with a crappy pump from intex

I do not know the size of your pool so I will just use mine to show you #'s

I have a 7000gl pool with a 2500gl ph pump
A pool needs to be turned over at LEAST 3 times a day so for me it takes at least 8 hours of filtering alone this does not include making chlorine.
Bottom line is you should run your system 24/7 between generating and straight filtering

The only cure for less filtering is to get a sand filter with at least a 1 horse power pump to pump 4000gl and uphaving a sand filter helps trap more small particles than the cartridge filter.

I noticed the difference the first night I had my sand filter. It ran for 6 hours before me turning my pool light on and to my surprise I did not see as many particles passing my light as with the cartridge filter and the second night nothing Crystal clear.

Bottom line is intex pumps and so on are not big enough for the pool it comes with.

The salt system alone with a sand filter is great

My pool water is a little cloudy, the test strip says everything is ok what should I do?


you can use a clarifyer but most likely you are not filtering enough.
A pool needs turned over At Least 3 times in a filtering cycle. Figure out how many gallons an hour your pump will do and then filter accordingly.
If you have 7000gl and your pump is 2000gph then you should be running you pump 10 1/2 hours a day/night.

Kenmore Top Mount Refrigerator - leaking water from the Cold Control Defrost Timer/Automatic Defrost Control Housing


It freezes up for a few reasons. First the water is not running down fast enough. That is why the wire was added to add heat from the heater to the drain hole. The metal pan under the evaporator coil may not be lined up with the drain hole well enough and holding water there. If that looks ok the drain tube that runs down the inside back of the unit might be slightly restricted. Not much you can do about that. I would make sure that the aluminum wire goes in the hole about 2 inches and that the unit is tilted slightly back to help water flow.
