Hi,

This can be 1 or 3 things.
In theis machine your inlet valve is protected by a filter. When the inlet filter is clogged by limescale it will whistle like crazy.
That is one
2 the inlet valve can be defective ( number M210) in the sites I will provide.
3 the seal of the airbraker can be leaking.

HERE is service manual of the LDF6810 which is actually more or less the same machine.

HERE you can see similar drawing +parts list so you can order

Good luck

Can you adjust the pressure setting on a Davey Torrium T45 pump to reduce the power of water when taps are turned on?


No. The pressure can only be adjusted at the expansion tank and pressure switch. Keep in mind that your tank pressure needs to be 2 lbs lower than your cut-in pressure. The pressure in your tank can be bled off at the schrader valve(tire valve) at the top of the tank. You MUST adjust both the tank AND the press switch.

Valve Pressure Reducing or Pressure Reducing Valve


dfef4ee.jpgThe pressure reducing valve on a boiler is the way that the water pressure in the boiler is controlled. The standard pressure for many hot water boilers is considered to be 12 PSI. To keep the boiler pressure at or near the 12 PSI mark a small valve is used for pressure reducing. Most domestic water systems run between 20 and 60 PSI, so the pressure must be reduced for the boiler.

This pressure reducing valve is installed in the pipe that goes from the domestic cold water to somewhere in the piping on the heating system, usually at or near the expansion tank. The valve is mostly maintenance free but will create some problems at times. Some of the things that can go wrong are:

  1. The valve seat can get dirt stuck under it causing water to leak by and increase the pressure in the boiler, causing the relief valve to release water periodically.
  2. The valve can become plugged with dirt causing the boiler to not have enough water pressure, which will cause circulation problems with the boiler pumps.
  3. The valve can leak causing a mess around the boiler area.

Replacement of the pressure reducing valve is not difficult if the installer strategically placed manual valves so that the reducing valve can be isolated from the rest of the system for replacement.
If the water pressure reducing valve fails in any way, it is usually best to just replace the whole valve rather than trying to repair or fix it. I have tried a number of times with only temporary results. These valves are not a high dollar item and the time it takes to fix them is not worth it.

Have a Rinnai convector 404 that has a ear piercing whistle to it as soon as you turn it on, have had a look with covers off and it seems like the noise is coming from where the gas comes into the heater.


Most likely it is a problem with the gas pressure or the air adjustment. You will need a Manometer to be able to check it and adjust it so I would recommend you call your local gas technician. If you have a shut-off on the unit, you can test this by throttling down the valve till the whistle diminishes however this is not a fix, just a diagnosis.

I just replaced the icemaker in my Kenmore Refrigerator with the WR30X10093 Kit that fits many other models of refrigerators also. The water slightly overfills the ice tray and freezes the cubes together...


Congratulations, you have very good water pressure. I am not aware of any adjustment for the time the fill solenoid opens. The easiest thing I can suggest is to adjust the water flow with the supply valve. If you have the typical saddle valve, it has quite a taper to the piercing needle, and you could possibly use that to reduce the water flow, thus the volume of the fill. A little trial and error will be needed to find the right number of turns for the valve to be opened. I also recommend a water filter in the line to reduce contaminants, which makes the ice taste better. The filter should be replaced every 6-months or so depending on the amount of impurities.

How do you adjust the water pressure on a flotec fp4012-10 water pump?


You can not adjust the 'water pressure' the pump delivers but you can regulate the flow by installing a valve on the pump discharge and then partially closing it to reduce flow and increase pressure.

New water valve makes ahigh pitched whistling


I had exactly the same problem. Just turn down the water pressure @ the valve on the water inlet line. While you have the toilet lid off, you may want to remove the fill valve (1/2 turn counterclockwise on the plastic nut attached to the water-in line), and clean the rubber diaphrams (there are 2). They will sometimes get gritty and this will cause some fill noises and leaking.

How do I set my water pressure regulator.


On the top of the regulator is a stem/threaded rod with two nuts on it.

Loosen the bottom nut and that will allow you to turn the stem, which adjusts the pressure.

clockwise usually increases pressue, although I have encountered PRV's (Pressure Reducing Valve) that decreases pressure with a clockwise turn.

When A PRV starts malfuntioning, they often cannot be adjusted and need to be replaced or rebuilt.

I have installed an AS 2555.501 Pressure Balance Vave and now the water pressure in the shower is low


this problem happens quite regularly as the valve will reduce the pressure but sometimes it will reduce too much, you can adjust it up, but you havent mentioned which type of shower valve it serves?
as the shower may not be suitable for the plumbing supplies it connects too , & how they are installed?
i am thinking its from the cold water main & that the valve requires storage feed instead of incoming water main supply? possibly thats why you installed a reducing valve??

Let me know?

Kindly
