Question about Culligan Sediment Water Filter Heavy Duty

1 Answer

My (mark 100 automatic) water conditioner was unpluged for a couple of weeks. Since pluging it back in, it has regenerated every night for the last 10. The salt container is half full and shut off valve is in the operating position. I recently cleaned the salt storage tank, as suggested in the manual. There have been no other changes to explain why its operation like this. Plaese help, losing sleep!

    I have checked the back flush and brine times, but thats about it. The clock was still on the correct time so I did not have to reset that either.

  • foxwood620 Mar 10, 2009

    I understand what you are saying.This particular softener has a sensor in the unit for regeneration. There is no set time or volume between regenerations.

  • foxwood620 Mar 13, 2009

    Hi again. The only settings that I was able to check were as follows. Time of day, time of regeneration, salt dosage, backwash time, brine rinse time, hardness level. These are all set to the levels they were when the unit was installed. I have booked a service call for this Monday. And have unpluged the unit for now. If you have any ideas, I will try them first. Thanks.

    Hi, There is not a lock on the display, and I am able to change the settings. But as far as a setting for regen interval, this unit has an aqua-sensor which regenerates when needed. It may be the the sensor has gone a little screwy!

    Hi, You know, I have never asked if you see a little lock on your display. I am sorry I just assumed you would know if it was locked or not. If it is, you can only adjust the time of day without a service call. I should still display the interval though.

    Hi, The next status push after Hardness should be regen interval. It is in days on time clock models and gallons on metered models. Then you may have one or two settings after that which would be lock or unlock and enable or disable for the display. If you are not getting the regen display it is possible that there is a control board problem, but check your sensor connections to be sure. Let me know!

    Hi, Sorry been out of town for a few days, If you have a mark 100 it has those settings i am looking for. The auqa sensor is the device that tells the program head to go ahead with the regen cycle but you have to have something to set the interval. This is not optional or automatic. It is either a program setting or a mechanical timer.

    Hi, It must have been a coincidence that the time was the same. Never the less, it needs to be reprogrammed!
    There are defaults, but if you looked at the program what was the Regen Interval? If it shows a 1 it will regen everyday, if you have a time clock model. If you have a metered it works by gallons.

    Hi, After being unplugged for that period of time it has to be reprogrammed. Have you done this?

If this is an Aquasensor model. The probe is sending a signal to regenerate. It needs to be pulled and cleaned. You would need to call culligan for this repair.

My water softener has been regenerating for over 8 hours. will not stop. It is a MARK 100 water softener

Try upluging it or turning off the power --it may just need to be rebooted -- I think it is a computer controlled unit?

My LG portable AC Model #LP1111WXR wouldn't turn off had to unplug it. Now won't turn on.

Unplugging the unit lets the tiny computer like microprocessor reset--means problem is in the brain of the unit or its power circuit.

If I am not mistaken, your dishwasher comes equipped with a water softener unit.
At some stage the regeneration cycle for the water softerner takes place. I am assuming the sound you hear is the solenoids of the regeneration system working.

If you are unsure you can refer to the user manual or this site for details. You will need to provide me the full model number in case you want further information.

Regeneration is nightly as oppsoed to the prrprogrammed 14 days

"DAYS00" indicates it is set to run every day. You may have lost power and it reset to factory settings. If the Gold series softener you have is the Aqua Sensor model (this is a probe in the resin tank that senses a change in the water chemistry and sends a signal to regenerate) the probe can get coated with iron and will either send NO signal or a Constant signal which will make it regen every night.
Usually a Gold series softener is either set up as metered or aqua sensor. There is an option for an override (such as 14 days) or it can be set up as a time clock model. Unplug the softener for 2 minutes and plug back in, re-program the controls to "DAY14". Make sure what the system is suppose to be set up as, Meter, AS, Time Clock.
Here is a link to Culligan for the Gold manual.

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.

You should try looking inside the tip of the power coard. Alot of the tobisha notebook power coards break when they are unpluged and pluged back in check to see if there is a smal copper wire inside the tip of the charger. if it does not simpily replace the charger.
