I think you have to show the water softener to the technician to get it fixed whatever the problem occur in it because we are new to it and don't have exact knowledge where is the problem or simply you can give call to customer support to get it resolved as quickly as possible.

Check the operation of the water softener as the flakes may be calcium deposits. Use only kiln dried softener salt in the unit as pool salt has impurities that will damage the filter medium

I have a white powdery substance coming out of the steam vents of my Rowenta iron. How do I get rid of this stuff?


The iron has white flakes coming from the steam vents.

The white flakes can be caused by calcium or other minerals in the tap water. To solve this problem, switch to bottled spring water. Once the water is changed it may take several uses before your iron adjusts to the new mixture and the issue is corrected.


In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Are they white flakes? Sounds like you have lime deposits turning loose in the plumbing.

Was the unit purchased and installed new? Maybe the privious owner had a hard water problem.

In either case, you may have to invest in a water softener.

My ice maker produces ice with white flakes in it, and slowly.


If you also get the flakes with the water from the water dispenser it could be the water chiller reservoir behind the crisper in the fridge. If it's just the ice maker the non stick surface in the ice mold may be coming loose.

Undissolved minerals can appear when ice cubes are added to chilled drinking water. Freezing tap water causes dissolved minerals to solidify and scatter, giving a cloudy appearance. When ice cubes melt, any undissolved minerals settle to the bottom. These mineral compounds in our drinking water are naturally occurring and safe.
Sometimes we see black particles which can be the non-stick surface of the ice mold flaking off.

Why are there white flakes in the ice from my icemaker?


The flakes are contaminants (minerals) in the water. Typically a sign of hard water, such as well water. A GOOD filter is highly recommended to control the contaminants, and must be replaced often for best results. Most hardware outlets as well as appliance dealers offer filters just for this application and should make the ice taste better. While the minerals are usually harmless and some even claim they're beneficial, you should have your water tested periodically if on a well just to be safe.

My whites are not comming clean and are not a bright white


I don't know if this is a solution to your particular problem but when we wash whites, first, we wash them twice,with hot water, second, we dont use bleach!!! (this will eventually yellow them). Third, we dont use liquid softner. For the whites we use a softner sheet in the dryer. Since we started to use this procedure I have noticed a marked decrease in areas such as under arm stains in white under shirts. I have some that are 2 years old and have no stains or yellowing like this. Hope this helps

Fabric softner build up in recepticle, and black mold forming


The build up is always going to be there as long as your using softener.The way to beat this is 1.add the softener directly into the tub before last rinse.2.Dillute it with water.3.Stop using softener and this cant ever occur./// The fabric softeners brand may make a difference,try another brand .If its watered down its less sticky.

Microwave Oven Interior Paint


Yes, but if this is not fixed, it may flake off and get in your food, or allow grease or food particles to build up on the surface.

 

The loose paint should really be sanded off, at least.

 

Then when it's clean and dry, you can apply a little high-temperature appliance paint, available from department stores, home improvement centers, and appliance parts stores.
