SOURCE: My cold water on my

first thing to do is of course check to make sure the cold water is turned on.  sorry i had to put that in there.  you can take off the cold hose at the washer and check to see if there is a blockage such as calcium deposits which can block the line. if all that is clear then you will probably need to have the inlet valve replaced.

Soloniod faulty


check the filters

at the intake the solinoids {water intake valves}
there is a small filter

you need to turn of the hot and cold water
like under the sink
take off both hozes hot and cold
then take out the filters at the machine intakes
and clean them
you can take out the filters
using flat nose plyers to gently pull them out
clean them out from brown crypto spyridion carcus
and other rubbish
you can leave the filters out and run thru the whole machine on like 30deg with a calgon tab
does help {not scotland no lime here }
then place the filters in the intakes again
or replace the valve if it leaks water after cleaning
then the spring in the valve of the valves solinoid coils isnt so good
and needs replaced
but can just be a blockage

above all if its a new machine you just got
perhaps it been in a low presure area so the valves will be
low presure hot and cold
usually its just the hot that is low presure

so you need to check the cold water is getting plenty on like 2 -3 bar presure...

What is the best way to clean your air purifier that has cigarette smoke


Try vinegar and water solution. Some people prefer Javex with water for tougher stains but be careful to air it out before exposing anyone to the fumes. Read the instructions for the ratio of Javex to water. Good luck

My Vulcan bonair evaporative cooler when turned on is making noise like its working but no air is coming through the vents. The pads disintegrated a few weeks ago and came through the vents. Has worked...


I would think you have to get new pads for it, they hold the water so the van can blow the moisture through them and then into the air. You should be adding a drop or 2 of bleach/javex to the water every week or so to prevent the grown of bacteria in the unit. it will cut down on colds etc. hope this helps.

I have a faema x1 grandaitalia machine , the water coming out of the boiler is only getting to 33 deg can you send me or a diagram of hot water system thanks or tell me what to fix problem


Ope you mean from hot water spout if so several problems exsist as this machine has a cold mix system to bring the roughly 120c water from boiler down to roughly 94c to use for americano. check spout and descale hot water nozzle or see if any black/brown particals in defuser(fine mesh in spout)as boiler pressure is roughly 1.3/1.4bar and mains water is roughly 2/4bar thus cold water will win if black brown particals in mesh poosible boiler contamination causing restriction to which once again cold water will win. question did any one take any pipes apart about 5 months ago????? as there are restrictors within the system.

Sweet smell from refrigerator


empty it out and wipe it all down with a solution of 1 cup of white vinegar in 4 cups of water. get all of the nooks and crannies. Then finish up that part of the job by wiping the surfaces with straight vanilla flavoring.

finally remove the lower front grill and clean the drip pan..........that should do it.

Does not fill with water. There are 3 wires to the water level control it is getting power to the brown wire but not to the pink wire. The best I can tell it is not actuating the water control solinoids....


Find the wiring diagram, it sounds like you have power to the pressure switch and none coming out. you need to look at the wiring diagram and determine which color wire runs to the water valve.

Now be very careful and check for power out of the pressure switch, with the timer on at the beginning of the wash cycle where the machine would fill with water, if you have power coming from the pressure switch you could have a bad mixing valve.

Is the water turned on for both the Hot and Cold supply?

If you select cold does the machine fill, with cold? also check warm, and Hot. if the macine fills with any water the pressure switch is not you problem. It could be the mixing valve.

Hotpoint aquarius dwf30 dishwasher


you can plumb into hot but there are some snags
first hot water pressure is often a lot lower than cold so the machine may take a long time to fill
second if the water is too hot it will destroy the resin of the water softener and you will see brown marks on the crockery.
third it a bit uneconomical as you will use a lot of hot water
