Question about Jacuzzi Signa 6 Whirlpool JAC-B540...

1 Answer

Two person jacuzzi that hasn;t been used for several years. Iron

We have high iron content water. I filled the jacuzzi as a treat for my grandkids, and iron colored "kelp-y" looking gunk came out the jets. I filled the tub with a pretty strong bleach solution, turned on the jets, drained and refilled, but still the gunk. Any ideas as to how to clean this up fairly quickly?

You are on the right track. Be sure and chlorinate and run the jets at the same time I would let it set for at least a couple of hours running the jet intermittantly and then drain and repeat.
Sound like you have Iron Bacteria. You may want ot contact a water profeessional who can recommend ways of getting rid of the iron.
Properly Chlorinating your well would be a good first step.

My iron is leaking water. Can it be repaired? I picked it up off the ironing board today and it was sitting in a puddle of water. It continued to pour out the bottom. Is this fixable?


I have had several do this after many many years of use. I did not find a fix but ended up buying a new model. If you do not need to use the steam function, you can still use it. Might want to use a spray bottle with water to add the steam the old fashion way.

My iron smells bad and transfers the smell to clothing. I have had my iron for 10 years and love it, but my housekeeper left water in it.


Hey, You have a "Mildew" issue. Just like leaving clothes in the washer too long before putting them into the dryer. If you read your iron's manual, it is recommended to use "Distilled" water...not tap water. Tap water has impurities...Distilled water does not. Here's the fix...MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOME WHEN YOU DO THIS! Get distilled water (From Grocery Store) Mix 1/2 cup distilled water with 1/2 cup vinegar. Put this into your iron and leave it on. To help it along, push the "Steam" button frequently. You can do this several times...the acid in the vinegar will clean out the residue. Once this is done, fill the iron with water, add a couple of drops of lemon juice and you'll be good to go. I know this to be fact...just did it myself : )

When jacuzzi is on water turns yellow


Are you on well water? If so you may have dissolved iron in the well water, it enters your house as clear water iron and then once areated in the tub it turns yellow as the iron oxidizes. Another sure sign of this is if the water in your toilet yellows after sitting in the bowel with no use after a few days. Solution: have a reputable local water treatment company come test your water, test for disolved iron, total hardness, and pH. If the disolved iron is 5ppm or less then a water softener will fix the problem. Make sure they add a turbulator to the softener and use iron fighter salt or mix iron-out into the salt tank.

It is always better to use distilled water, but this is not essential. However when using normal water, if the water has high salt content, white residue may be left on the bottom plate.

I have a black enamal cast iron jacuzzi kitchem sink with 4 holes for the faucet predrilled..the holes are 3" in dia. where can I find a faucet for this sink?


If you have a 3" hole I would definately say that is a special order faucet, But if 3" is a typo you can get what are called "cockhole covers" to cover the hole you're not using. What i usually do is, find a faucet that will use the 3 holes and install a soap dispenser, filtered water spigot, or a instant hot water spigot to fill the fourth hole.
If 3" is not a typo you might try to contact a granite countertop co. or call Jacuzzi and install a larger plate that will cover large holes and have new (smaller) holes drilled for a standard faucet

hope this helps

Dripping brown-spotted water on clothes while ironing.


Your water could have high iron content, therefore empty out the old water and use Distilled water in the iron.

If you are using Distilled water already then it's a problem with the inside of the iron. Get a new iron.

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:

Mold


First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar.  I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir.  The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times.  Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting.  Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth

CALCIUM BUILDUP COMING OUT OF THE STEAM HOLES...


Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.
