Not making steam

Suddenly the steam pump seems to working at a higher rate, something like 10 pulses per second, than when the unit was new and produces just a stream of hot water from the steam wand. Everything else works fine.

Hi tried99X. couple of possibilities: have you made sure steam wand is completely clean? allowed adequate time for water to heat? try looking inside: unplug machine, remove the ten screws on the bottom and gently lift away base: it does have wires connecting it to rest of machine so be carefull not to yank on them. locate the hose leading from the pump to the steam-arm (may be hard to see; use a good penlight and a small telescoping mirror if you have to; Autozone & other auto parts stores sell them for a couple of bucks-if you don't want to take off the entire casing of the machine. does the hose look okay?) also see if the pump has vibrated out of position. also, when's the last time you descaled? good luck!

Why is there No steam from morphy Richards 42247 model steam generator?


It may be calcified or have lime scale. If the heater is "gummed up", it cannot heat properly. Try using either vinegar (takes longer) or an iron cleaner. You pour it in and it breaks up the scale. CLR works quite well too. Use pipe cleaners to clear out the holes in the sole plate.

What is the correct pulse rate for a 57 year old male


Vital signs are specific to every person but as a general rule,
Typically a normal resting pulse rate is anywhere between 60 and 100 beats per minute. Middle age good physical condition 80 beats per minute plus or minus 10 beats per minute is about right. If you're out of shape closer to 100 per minute very athletic closer to 60. A bigger concern is blood pressure as this will also influence pulse rate. There are too many factors to consider to simply post online. Such as overall health, cardiac function, as well as medications and life style. For example, caffeine and stress will increase your rate.
hope this helps.

What size oil furnace is needed for 1200 square feet?


75000 to 85000 btu Or British thermal pound.
Two units of measure are important in sizing an oil furnace. The first is the British Thermal Unit or BTU, which represents the energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit at normal atmospheric pressure. The input capacity of an oil furnace is often stated using this unit of measure. The second number is the fuel efficiency rating, which is expressed as a percentage. This represents the amount of energy that gets converted to heat, with higher numbers being better. To determine the energy output in BTUs per hour, multiply the input BTU by the efficiency rating. For example, a furnace with 100,000 BTU of input and an efficiency rating of 89 produces 89,000 BTUs of output. One with an efficiency rating of 80 and the same input amount, produces only 80,000 BTUs of output.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Water, not steam from the nozzle


Most likely a faulty valve the lets the water come out before building the steam pressure. I have not seen a repair manual but it is not that easy to replace he valves. The valves come as a set and are made of plastic. Not that expensive but you will need to open the unit completely to replace them.

We have a water softener and I think the water has too much salt and therefore, our Vicks vaporizer has too much steam. Any suggestion?


If your softener is working properly, you should never get any salt in your water. The salt is used only to reactivate the ionic media in your softener cartridge, and during the backflush cycle, all that salt is removed, down to PPM (Parts Per Million) levels.
In any case, even if you used salt water in your vaporizer, it would not increase the amount of steam that it produces. Salt water has a higher boiling point than fresh water. You would also notice salt buildup inside the tank as the water level goes down.
The Vicks Vaporizer works by using only heat to produce steam- the hotter it gets, the more steam it makes. The only practical way to get too much steam outside of a malfunction that causes your heating element to get abnormally hot would be if you live at a very high altitude where water boils at a lower temperature.
High humidity in your home will make it appear as if your vaporizer is making too much steam since the surrounding air will be less capable of absorbing it.
A slightly "off topic" note- if you chose the Vicks Vaporizer/humidifier and have children, you have made a wise decision. Because it produces water vapor by heating instead of ultrasonics, contaminants and minerals (such as salt, iron, calcium, etc.) remain in the tank and will not enter the vapor stream.

My husband took his blood pressure and an E appeared for Sys reading. We could not get it to operate correctly. Why?


E appeared because the monitor was not able to read his blood pressure. I have the same problem myself if I take my blood pressure after sitting down for a while because my pulse rate is 40 beats per minute and the monitor is set to expect a higher reading. If his pulse rate is too low the monitor thinks it's not reading it properly.

It could also be unable to read his blood pressure because the sensor was not pressed against his pulse. Try moving it around a little. Also it's a good idea to check the monitor on a second person as there could be a fault in the monitor itself.

I hope this helps.

Check the thermostats on the steam boiler, one of them is not working, also check the main board for damage, if the pump is not pulsing when you are steaming.
