Question about Melnor 3280 Digital Aqua Timer Watering System with Four Valves

Open Question

Number two does not turn off.

I can hear the click of the valve when I turn manual on and off. However, it does not shut off automatically. Wires inside appear clean. Worked well last season when it was new. My other signel valve unit still works well.

My 32000 btu unit lights and runs when it reaches desired temp and shuts off the pilot stays on and you hear a click then a minute later a second click and the pilot light shuts off.

The clicking you are hearing is the gas valve trying to open but because the pilot light is out the valve shut back off. Sounds like the thermocouple is bad on the unit. The thermocouple sits net to the pilot light and allows the gas valve to open. Hope this helps.

I have a john deer stx38 fuel shutoff solenoid is bad can I bypass this

Unless the solenoid is shorted or opened electrically; or physically damaged have it ultrasonically cleaned. No chemical dip as it will damage the enamel coated wires.

Removing and bypassing can cause exhaust system damage from raw fuel igniting in the exhaust during shut down.

Kenmore side by side refrigerator water dispensor will not shut off

Your water control valve is defective and will need to be replaced. Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze

The Dryer is running too hot (red hot) and not turning off or running it's cycle.

You want to do a few things to correct this. First make sure your air flow is good. then replace the cycling thermostat. That stat is mounted on the blower housing right next to the fuse:

I recently worked on a dryer that was doing this exact thing and I replaced the control thermostat.
My friend Larry brought it by because it was overheating and he had already changed the fuse once.
I always see the tough or the strange. LOL. Anyway I took the dryer completely apart and cleaned it up real good. Replaced the fuse and observed the dryer with the back off. I watched the heating element and it just stayed on way too long. Normally you can hear the control clicking and observ the element coming on and off. The cycling thermostat has 4 wires. 2 small wires and 2 large wires. The large wires carry the current to the heater element. The 2 small wires are use to warm up the klixon so that it will shut down even faster for knits and perma press items. So what goes wrong? The bimetal inside the control simply gets fatigued and don't shut down no more. The dryer overheats and the fuse blows.

Our automatic ice maker will not quit dripping in the freezer. It keeps clogging the ice maker with icicles and large blocks of ice. Essentially, it keeps "freezing over." We have defrosted it...

if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

Have Kleenmaid "Super silent system"

Dishwasher Doesn't Fill

1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.

2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.

3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded).

Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.

4) If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (he or she will probably need to replace the water intake valve).

5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts-including the water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch-may be faulty.

Hi, yes for a heat only you will have 2 wires red and white. On the knob, you should have an off, pilot, and on position. It should be in the pilot when it is lite. Once the pilot is on you say you slowly turn it to on and you hear a click and off it goes? Turn the pilot screw back down some, about 1/2 an inch. Did you wire the control wires to the gas valve itself? This sounds like what is happening, the wires from the stat and if it has a pilot generator with a red and white wire that connect to the screws are in the wrong place and shuts it down as soon as you turn the valve to on. It is doing this for safety as it is not wired right. It should have come with a wiring diagram to show how it is wired. For all I know it may have come prewired, is this true? Did you do any wiring at all? Can you describe to me how many wires are there and the markings on the gas valve such as th or tr and so on? It sounds as though the 2 stat wires are on the wrong terminals and will shut down everything. Double check this and it should have a diagram showing you how it should be. Let me know. This should be very easy for us to get going.
PS, does it have a ground wire that's not connected?

Runs for about 5 min then a click and shuts off,turn gas off and restart and runs again for 5min and a click and shuts off, has remote control.

If the flame lifts off the burner and yellows, you are starving for combustion air. You will need to inspect the air intake and associated piping. If the flame does not change but all of a sudden you hear a click, you may have a bad thermopile. A thermopile is a large probe approx 3/8" dia located at the pilot light. It will have either two wires that go back to the gas valve or it may have a screw in terminal. You can test it by unscrewing it from the gas valve while the flame is on and if it acts like it does after the 5 min, replace it.

Valve makes a loud clicking noise and activates over and over again

Sounds like your humidistat is the problem. Try turning it off, if still clicking, disconnect one of the wires at the valve (if accessable). If the valve doesn't close, replace valve. Otherwise replace humidistrat.
