These facets are shipped with plastic plugs in them to keep stuff from getting inside them during shipping. Did you remove the plastic plugs where the supply lines hook up?

Balance Spool Maintenance
The precise and instantaneous pressure control illustrated has been
achieved through the balancing spool, which has been manufactured to
exacting tolerances.
During construction or valve installation, foreign material such as solder
flux, pipe cuttings sand, dirt or wood is unavoidably introduced into the
water system. Occasionally, however, rare, these foreign materials can
cause the balancing spool to become stuck temporarily between the
rough-in and trim-out operations. If this happens, it will be apparent at
the trim-out test, in that the valve will deliver only a small trickle of water
or it will deliver only hot or cold water. If this occurs, proceed as follows:
1. Make sure that both the hot and cold water service lines are ON. Also,
make sure that both screwdriver stop-check valves are open. The valve
WILL NOT OPERATE unless both supplies are ON.
2. If the valve still does not function properly, turn off both the hot and
cold supplies and remove the balancing spool, using a wide blade
screwdriver. The inner piston of the balancing spool should shake
back and forth freely. If this is not the case, jar the spool on either
end to remove the foreign material and free the spool. When the
spool is free, replace it; turn ON both water supplies and the valve
will function properly. If you are unable to free the inner piston,
replace the entire spool.

GE washing maching not filling


Several factors can cause a GE washing machine not to allow water to enter the drum, including closed valves, kinked hoses, a faulty electrical breaker or sediment in the water lines. Sediment occurs most often when the water to the home is off due to electrical outages or when installing items in the plumbing. Cleaning the screens will remove a sediment blockage, allowing water into a washing machine.
    • 1 Check each water valve for the hot and cold water lines to make sure they are open completely. Open valves are turned completely to the left. Check the fuse at the electrical box to make sure it is not faulty, and check to make sure the washer is plugged securely into the outlet. Observe the water supply hoses to make sure there are no kinks from the supply valves to the back of the appliance.
      Observe the water supply valve handles to see if they are cracked. If so, they need replacing.
    • 2 Turn off both the hot and cold water supply valves. Turn each knob completely counterclockwise to turn them to the off position. Pull the washer forward to reach the water supply valves, hoses and the back of the washing machine. Place one hand on each side of the washing machine and slightly lift the front while pulling straight out from the wall.
    • 3 Place a bucket at the rear of the appliance. Use adjustable pliers to unscrew the hot and cold water hoses on the back of the washing machine. Turn each hose counterclockwise to unscrew and remove from the washing machine while pointing them into the bucket to catch any water in the hoses.
    • 4 Turn on the hot water supply valve and hold the hose pointing into the bucket. Observe to see if water is coming out of the hose or trickling out of the hose. Repeat this procedure for the cold water supply hose. Limited water or no water flow indicates that the lack of flow is at the valve end of the water supply hoses.
    • 5 Pull the filters out of the washer valves with needle-nose pliers. Rinse under warm water to clean out any sediment and replace them in the hot and cold water washer valves on the appliance.
    • 6 Unscrew the hot water supply hose from the valve using adjustable pliers. Turn the hose connector clockwise to unscrew and remove. Repeat this procedure with the cold water supply hose. Pull out the screen from each hose with needle-nose pliers and rinse under warm water to clean. Replace the screens.
    • 7 Replace both water supply hoses on the washer valves and the washing machine and tighten them with adjustable pliers. Slide the washing machine back into place and level the legs by slightly lifting the front of the washing machine and setting it back down.

No water coming out of the dispenser


Hello there and welcome to fixya
Dispenser Does Not Operate
  • 1 Ensure that the water supply line is installed according to the manufacturer's directions. Turn the water supply shutoff valve counter-clockwise to fully open it.
  • 2 Replace the water filter or remove the filter and install the plug. A clogged filter will prevent the water dispenser from functioning properly.
  • 3 Place a large container under the water dispenser. Press and hold the dispenser lever for at least two minutes to remove air in the water system.
Does Not Dispense Water
  • 1 Inspect the supply line and shutoff valve for clogs. Call a plumber to remove clogs in the line or shutoff valve.
  • 2 Replace the water filter cartridge or remove the filter and install the plug.
  • 3 Ensure that the filter cartridge is installed properly. Remove it and reinstall the filter cartridge. The cartridge will lock into place when installed correctly.

Our ice maker stopped working after our town had a water shortage and shut off supply for a period of time.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

When there is a long term water outtage all kinds of things can be introduced into your water system. Most likely there is debris in your water supply line or water valve assy on your refrigerator.

1. Turn off the water supply to your refigerator.
2. Remove the water supply line
3. Turn on the water and purge the water line. ( If there is not water coming through the line at this point the water shut off valve at the supply connection is probably clogged. ) Then reconnect the line and turn on the water.

4. After purging the supply line unplug the refrigerator
a. Make a test cord for the water valve solenoid by using an old extension cord and cutting off the end and installing female termials available at any applaince parts source or some hardware supply sources.
b. Remove the fiberboard rear cover of the unit and gain access to the water valve
c. Disconnect the 2 terminals of the ice maker water valve solenoid and connect your test cord.
d. Remove the plastic line that goes to the icemaker at the top connection by pulling down and place in a bucket.
e. Plug the test cord into the wall outlet. Water should flow into the bucket.
f. Unplug the water valve solenoid test cord. Water MUST stop.

If you do not get water flow at this point your water valve is clogged. You can either try to reverse flow with water and power to unclog it or... use LP air at a distance pointing into the top plastic line with the test cord connected to the wall outlet. If it does not clear then your only option is to replace the water valve.

g. Remove the test cord and reconnect unit wires to the water valve solenoid.

Here is a link on how to cycle the ice maker:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

Just note that there is only 7.5 seconds that water is supplied when the sweep fingers are near vertical.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a brand new faucet not getting any water pressure? Water Pressure was fine before putting new faucet in. How do i troubleshoot this problem and get my bathroom sink running properly again?


It is very common when you first install any faucet, for the aerator on the very end of the faucet (where the water comes out into the sink) to plug up with rust or sediment. Because you had to turn off water supply, it churns up this sediment in pipes. It initially plugs up the filter/screen in aerator. Just unscrew the end & flush it out with water. Then reattach.

I recently installed new fluidmaster fill valve. Now when i try and turn valve from wall on the water flow from valve shuts off before i can get valve all the way on. Even if i turn it on slow it will...


You have a water restriction, a fluid master can be taken appart it has a cap on top that will pop off that conceals a washer where water comes up.

First turn water off and remove cap and barely crack valve and flush out with cap and washer out just look at it good so you will know how to put it back together.

That way it let you know if the valve is where the problem is. You could take supply line loose from bottom of tank and turn valve on run some in a container to flush out any trash in line.

You don't know how many times I've heard and found the shutoff valve off or partly turned off. Water entering DW is from line pressure not pumping. Items to suspect (again) the water supply valve (would'nt be the first time a new valve is bad). The supply valve (3374621) at the Dw, the float safety switch (normally at front left side,)...remove lower rack, lift float housing up and down. You should hear a click both ways and the housing should be free. Is the Dw fill valve getting control signal from timer. Should be 120v for about 60 sec.

Hot water coming out of overflow pipe on my vulcan everhot water


Assuming you are talking about the temperatur/pressure relief valve, it is stuck open.

1. Turn off gas or electric to water heater
2. Close water supply to water heater
3. open hot water faucet on nearest fixture to depressurize hot water system.
4. close tpr valve (you may have to push in on the center spine. It may be resistant to closing from sediment. If so, opening and closing several times may solve that issue.

Once you get the tpr valve closed, close the faucet and open the supply valve. If the tpr stays closed, go ahead and turn on the gas/electric and re-light pilot and turn on control etc.

If the TPR blows again, you will need to replace it. YOu can buy a new one at any plumbing supply store. Shut down the heater again, drain a bit of water out using the valve on the bottom of the tank. there is probably copper pipe connected to the TPR valve which you may have to cut or maybe can just unscrew. The TPR threads out of the tank, install the new valve (make sure to use pipe dope or teflon tape.
