Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
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!!
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.

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