Check the water level switch.
This switch is activated by air pressure in a tube connected from the switch to the bottom of the outer tub. If this tube is clear then the switch is bad.

Water diagnose light blinking 0n cm3 scotsman ice machine even after changing water level sensor

Is the sump tray full of water? or is it not filling up fast enough? Water level sensor lets control board it needs water or its full of water. If machine is not getting enough water or slow filling then check the water filter, if water is flowing good through filter good then pull water line off of the water inlet valve to make sure there is no trash blocking water at inlet. If not then make sure the water solenoid is getting power call from board to solenoid, if getting 115v to coil and slow to no water to sump then replace valve, if no power to valve then replace board.

Add water light comes on when it is full

Try using warmer water. At 113 degrees our 2.0 finally admitted that the reservoir did in fact have enough water to operate. I filled the reservoir half full of drinking water and then heated other water in a water kettle. Just before it boiled I began pouring it in the reservoir until the Max level. To my delight when I pushed the continue button this time it worked. Customer Service had said to use luke warm/ room temperature water. For our Keurig, the water needed to be at least 113 degrees. Hope this helps.

yes you are. First of all it wastes energy. Secondly never fill a kettle from the hot water because it contains disolved zinc and rust. That is why recipes say to fill a pot with cold water before heating. The best coffee comes from running the cold water for 30 seconds before filling a kettle. I have a book called The chocolate and coffee bible. It talks of these things and how the air that is mixed in from the aerator adds to the taste as well.

How do I clean

Fill kettle until 3/4 full with 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Boil and allow to stand overnight.

Empty solution from kettle. Fill the kettle with clean water, bring to boil and discard water. Repeat and the kettle will be ready for use.

Or you can use a proprietary kettle descaler, which is available at most hardware stores.

LG washing machine problem

I had the same problem with my LG front load. The second repairman fixed the problem. The water lines going into the machine were clogged with sediment (probably because I have well water). This caused the cups to remain full of water because the water pressure was so low the siphons were not working as they should to empty the cups. This also caused the wash cycles to be extremely long (sometimes 2 hours) because it took so long for the water to enter the machine for the wash & rinse cycles. Since the lines have been cleaned it works fine.

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full

Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.

Washer does not fill

many new machines use what we would only describe as hardly any water, does it do the job properly, if so then fine leave it as is,

this is calculated by computer so that the lowest level of water is used to do the job, hence the lowest amount of electric is used to warm it up, (a bit like filling the kettle to the top for one cup of coffee,its a waste)

its not what we see that matters, its what it does, after all we don't generally sit and watch it do we?

Starts to fill and then stops, and the cycle continues on.

Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. back
