Culligan super S won't suck bleech

The unit won't suck-up the bleach solution, I have checked the line and cleaned the actuater under the steel plate on top of the unit. When I activate the recharge, the motor runs and water bypasses, but it doesn't have any suction on the bleach line.

SOURCE: Water leaking from unit

It may be the drain line is not dripping into the catch bucket under the back side, visually check to see if the line is reaching into the bucket and that it's not clogged up on the inside of the unit floor. The back panel being wet may just be condensation in between cooling cycles as the frost melts. If the unit is OK with keeping temps the refrigerant charge is likely OK.

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher model LDF7811 doesn't clean

LG DOES ****. We had this dishwasher and from the very beginning it didn't seem to dry and within a few months it was not cleaning as well as we had hoped. Within 9 months it had gotten so bad that we were really unhappy and then we got an error code. LG arranged for a local repair company to take a look at it. They ended up replacing EVERY part of the dishwasher except the tub itself. They replace the pump, the heater, the whole door assembly, the wiring harness (the wires had started melting into the sound proofing material), the electronics. Literally everything. From that point on we really noticed that we were getting food chunks on everything. Not only that, all the dishes were greasy and it wasn't even coming close to drying. There was mildew and mold growing inside the tub! Finally I got fed up and threw a fit with LG. They sent another repair guy out and he told us it was going to take 3 weeks to get a brand new pump and heater because the replaced heater had failed. After I complained to LG the repair guy got the parts in a week. He quickly replaced it and tested it and it flooded our kitchen (hardwood flooring) and leaked through the floor to the ceiling downstairs. The new heater was faulty. Not only that, the repair guy told us that the first repair, 9 months earlier, had not been completed and our turbulence detector had never been hooked up. Our solution? We fought with LG and Home Depot, where we got it, and LG offered to replace it with a new dishwasher. I said forget it, we didn't ever want an LG dishwasher again. Home Depot stepped up and took back our 2 year old dishwasher and refunded all our money. We bought a KitchenAid and we LOVE IT!

Make sure the line to RO tank is not pinched. The automatic shutoff may have some carbon fines in it. It can be taken apart and cleaned. Also if you are using a piercing valve to feed the RO make sure there is enough water coming from the valve. I would take the filters out again just to double check them also.

SOURCE: Leaks on the top of black box of culligan water

Is this a reverse osmosis drinking water system? If it is it is an H8 RO. If so shut the water off that feeds the RO. The leak is probably coming from one of the fittings, they can be cut by the compression fittings and leak.

I have had my Pelonis water cooler for approx 2 years now the cold water tastes like mildew. I tried cleaning it with a product from Culligan but the problem seems worse. Any suggestions

I would suggest a 50/50 mix of water and bleech, and make sure you let it soak long enough to kill the germs. Then flush is well with plenty of water.

Culligan Super-S model 405AA38-556 C No bleach feed during regeneration. At end of cycle removed bleach feed tube from valve - liquid under pressure.

It normally is under pressure. There is a "check ball" in the tube to prevent water from coming out of the tube in service. The feed tube has to be flooded with water in service position so when system goes in to draw cycle vacuum is created in the tube to draw bleach. You may have a plugged eductor assembly or feed tube may be restricted.

The clothes come out smelly mouldy and I want to clean it out

Just a suggestion but if you let the water level to the lowest level and then use several gallons of bleech in the water, it should kill any mold that is growing in the unit. And you won't have to take things apart to see if it works.

I would run the bleach solution first, and then run another load with just rags or something and see if there was an improvement or not.

Then do another load (without clothes) with a lot of lemon juice to finish the cleaning process.

Leak at one of the fittings on my Culligan RO system

Too much pressure in holding tank will not cause leaks in the RO unit. All too much pressure in tank will do is cause low or no product water in RO tank. Older Culligan RO systems (H8, H83, H5) had fittings that used metal locking washers and these can cut the RO line after the RO has been moved around while changing filters. Newer styles (AC30, Water Tower) use quick connect fittings and the RO line may work loose after filter changes and system being moved around under sink.
Turn the incoming water off to RO, turn the water off on RO tank, open the RO faucet to relieve pressure and pull the line off feeding the RO tank, inspect (you may want to cut off a small portion of the line at the filter) check the o-ring and re-install.

When replacing the filters it says to put bleach in the 5 micron housing and carbon filter . do you put both filters in and add bleach to both

I prefer to clean the housings out with about a tablespoon of bleach before installing filters. TFC membranes used in almost all RO systems are susceptible to chlorine degradation. So unless you pull all the filters and sanitize the system it is NOT a good idea to add bleach to housing when installing filters. It helps to use latex gloves when changing filters to prevent bacterial contamination from your hands. This is the main reason RO systems need to be sanitized with filter changes.

How to replace filter on an undersink culligan reverse osmosis filter

Turn off the incoming water supply, turn off the valve on storage tank, open the RO faucet and let pressure off. Have a pan ready, remove the sediment pre-filter housing and post-carbon housing.
Use latex gloves when changing filters, add 1 tsp bleach to each housing and clean them thoroughly before installing filters. Make sure all bleach is rinsed out before installing filters. Turn the water back on to system, turn the tank back on and run 2 tanks of water out before using water again.

I'm looking for info on Culligan Super "S" water conditioner. Serial # V06244773 Part# 01014773 Can I get a manual? The water smells like rotten eggs. I need to know does it uptake bleach every 30 days or...

The Culligan Super S filtration system needs to have 1 gallon of 5% household bleach at least weekly. If your water is high in H2S it needs a gallon of bleach with every regeneration. Set the system to regenerate every day for 1 week and bleach at least 3x that week. Super S filters are recommended to be re-bedded every 750,000ppm. Regen cycle example: 2ppm iron, .5ppm H2S this system is set to regenerate every other and use 1 gallon of bleach per week. This system is now 13 years old and has exceeded the 750,000ppm suggested re-bed but is still performing with great water.
You also need to check the water heater to see if smell is coming from there. The anode rod in WH degrades and gives off a sulfur type smell. Here is a link for the Super S manual.

I have a Culligan Gold Series Whole House filter that is not drawing chlorine at all.

This is a Super S filter for iron and H2S removal. The venturi nozzle is plugged in the eductor assembly. It is under the chrome plate on top of valve. Put unit in bypass, run it though a quick manual cycle to relieve pressure, take the plate off, it will be plugged with oxidized iron, clean it completely, there is a screen, throat and nozzle, clean all and reassemble.
