How much vinegar do you add to the dishwasher?


For regular monthly maintenance fill the dishwasher soap dish with vinegar once a month and run a regular cycle with an empty dishwasher. If you're having problems with dishes not getting clean or dishwasher soap build up on the floor of your dishwasher do the above now. You may need to run the empty dishwasher with vinegar a few times to clean the drain lines; running empty once a week with vinegar is not too often.

IRobot Mirra 530 Tips & Tricks


Tips from iRobot Resources:


Run Mirra only when in the water.
Mirra has a very strong motor system that needs to stay cool for optimal performance and life. Your pool water around the motor helps keep it cool during operation. Therefore Mirra should not be run outside of the pool due to the risk of overheating the motor.

Choose the correct filter canister.
Use the Large Debris Filter Canisters when the pool contains a significant amount of large debris (leaves, insects, etc.) and when the pool is opened for the season or cleaning during the Fall. The Fine Filter Canisters are ideal for filtering small debris such as algae, sand, silt and bacteria and for regular pool cleaning maintenance during the peak of your pool season.

Keep Mirra working at peak performance.
Mirra uses the powerful force of water pumped through its filter to clean and circulate pool water and to propel itself around your pool. It pumps and filters more than a gallon of water every second! Clean the filter canisters regularly by removing them from Mirra, emptying its contents and hosing it out. Keeping the filter canisters clean will ensure optimal cleaning results and strong pump suction.

Allow the motor to cool before removing the robot from the pool.
Mirra's power supply has an automatic timer that shuts Mirra off after each cleaning cycle. Wait 20 minutes before removing Mirra from the pool to allow the pump motor to cool. Turn the power supply off and unplug it from the electrical outlet before removing Mirra from the pool.

Dishwasher Maintenance


Your dishwasher is one of the most used appliances in your kitchen.
No matter what dishwasher model you have, you need to give some thought to giving it regular maintenance. Dishwasher cleaning is one of the things that many people wonder about. The best dishwasher is the one that is kept in good running order by keeping it in top working condition.

If your dishwasher is used regularly you really do not need to clean a dishwasher. Dishwasher cleaning is only needed if you do not use it for a week or more and it begins to smell bad inside. Other wise the only cleaning needed is to keep food particles and waste from building up inside. Some dishwasher can discharge larger particles then others. If you have one that does not do well in this area, then you need to remove the leftover food often. A paper towels works very well to do this. There are commercial dishwasher cleaners that you can run through your dishwasher, to make it clean and smell nice again if you have not used it for a long time.

If you are noticing that your dishes are not being cleaned properly, it may be because you are not getting enough water in the dishwasher. The water inlet valve is what allows the water to flow into you dishwasher. This valve will wear over time and then not allow the water to enter properly. This valve is located right behind the kick panel, and is a very easy replacement for most handyman type people. It is recommended that this valve be replaced as a preventative measure, every three to seven years.

Check the racks in your dishwasher for places that the plastic coating has worn off. When this happens the rack will rust and can stain what is being washed. There are repair kits available to repair the coatings on your racks. If you sand the rust off of the racks first the repair will stack better and last longer.

The spray arms inside your dishwasher can also become clogged. Bits of food, paper, and other things can become stuck in the small holes. Take the time to remove these and clean out all of the little holes. This will allow the pump to move more water and also ensure that you get a good spray pattern again to give you the best cleaning possible.
If you find glass in the spray arms, you should also remove and disassemble the pump. Check it for damage from the glass. Glass can damage the seals in the pump. If left too long it will cause the pump seals to leak. If you have a leak at your pump, it may have been caused by glass.

On some dishwashers there is a filter before the pump. This is located under the lower spray arm, near the bottom of the dishwasher. Clean this filter often and if it becomes damaged replace it to protect your pump. If you do not know how to clean it, check your owner’s manual to see how to do it properly.

These things will help your dishwasher to work well and give you great service for a long time. If you provide service to your dishwasher you will also be assured that you are getting the best performance from your dishwasher also.

CLEANING PREFILTER(S), CELL(S) AND POSTFILTER(S) CAUTION Sharp edges. Can cause personal injury. Carefully handle cell(s) or wear protective gloves to avoid cuts from sharp metal edges. Setting a regular cleaning schedule To ensure optimum performance from the air cleaner, the prefilter(s) and cell(s) must be cleaned regularly- twice a year with normal use or more frequently with heavy use. Use the wash reminder schedule below to help establish and maintain a regular cleaning schedule. Mount the wash reminder schedule in a convenient location. NOTE: You may let the heating or air conditioning system operate normally while the cell(s) are being washed. Simply turn off the air cleaner switch. Cleaning your Prefilter 1. The quickest and easiest way to clean your prefilter is to use the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner to vacuum the lint off the dirty side of the prefilter. Greasy dirt may require soaking the prefilter in a tub or rinsing with the garden hose. Do not wash the prefilter in the dishwasher or car wash 2. The prefilter should be cleaned every 6 months or more frequently with heavy use. This will keep the prefilter clean of air choking lint that can make your system work harder. Vacuum the prefilter with a brush attachment, rinse it with a hose, or soak it in a tub. Do not wash the prefilter(s) in the dishwasher or car wash. Cleaning your Cells 1. A quick cleaning of the cells can be done by simply wiping down the ionizer wires with a damp cloth. This will help boost the efficiency of the air cleaner between full cleaning cycles. Ths quick clean can be done every time the prefilters are cleaned. 2. A full cleaning of the cells will return the air cleaner to its peak efficiency. An easy way to wash the cells is in a tub of hot, soapy water. Just soak the cells until the water cools, agitate and rinse. For details on cleaning cells, see below for Washing the cell(s) in a tub or Washing the cell(s) in your automatic dishwasher. 3. Because the efficiency of the air cleaner remains high even as it loads up with dirt, a full cleaning of the cells can be put off for yearly maintenance and a quick cleaning can be done more often. Those wishing to renew to peak efficiency or with heavier use may want to wash more frequently. Replacing your Postfilter 1. The postfilter is an optional filter that boosts the efficiency of the air cleaner. Do not wash the postfilter because that will neutralize the factory applied charge. 2. The postfilter should be replaced every six months to ensure peak performance.

There is a maintenance light on with an exclamation point. What does this mean


It reminds you to do your 'regular scheduled maintenance' of your car.
Example: 50,000-miles, 70,000-miles, 100,000-miles, etc. These warnings are already programmed in your car's computers to simply remind you so the car is kept in top shape, and peak performance.
In some cases, if this maintenance warning is ignored, the car may not keep its peak performance or even break down, having to be towed.
The concerned car's authorized dealer usual performs these regularly scheduled maintenance, but competent independent auto repair shops, such as Midas, are able to do these reagular maintenance as well.

My Kenmore ELITE keeps shutting off before the


Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
