Brine tank no water in

I would say that you should plan on either replacing the clock mechanism, or you may have a larger issue with the other internal gears (e.g., binding). Personally, I replaced the clock one year, then had to replace the entire unit the next. You didn't mention the model, but many use the same clock/timer/gear head, so check for the parts online using your make/model. You can easily save 50% over retail...

Change o ring

I just tried to replace one of the o-rings on an AE125. The old original one came out distorted do to the fact that there's no groove to hold the o-ring in a uniform position.
Even though I was careful and evenly tightened the cap screws,
the new o-ring started leaking an hour after I had left the job.
My opinion is the mounting of the metal lid to the plastic tank is a bad design.
Good luck on your repairs.

Stelrad ideal mexico super cf100 - electrical problem

There are a couple of things that can be causing your problem. 1. The controller is bad which is tripping the breaker. 2. The breaker needs to be checked or replaced. 3. circuit overload by to many appliances. In any event you will need qualified technicians to do repair. My guess is to start with the controller and have it checked because of its age. After this is done get an electrician if necessary. The kitchen circuit may be a separate issue or part of the problem. If your kitchen or an appliance in it like a stove, fridge or microwave is on the same circuit this will cause a possible overload and trip the breaker. If your kitchen is on a separate circuit and you added another appliance this could cause an overload if in use at the same time.

Trying to look that unit up. I believe it is obsolete. IF there is an electric motor on this unit, I would check that first. Motors are the biggest consumers of electricity and they have moving parts. If there are no motors then you need to check any electric ignitors that are present. They step voltage up and can short out. This means that you should have some way to test things. Using something like a meter is good

My WH40 makes a loud hum, but it works well. It is about 20 years old, and didn't make this noise until fairly recently. Could the motor be requiring replacing?

1) Yes, the noise is from clock motor turning the gears.
When timer is new, parts have a bit of white grease on them.
Turn off power and spray WD 40 or apply some white grease and see if that helps.

2) Yes
WG1573 240Volt clock motor is going bad.
Tip out mechanism using thumb spring located top inside box and check clock motor number.

Installed the timer last week, we have it to cut on at 4pm and shut off at 10pm, it will come on at the right time, and even shut off at the right time, but for the first time only, once it hits the 10pm...

Your clock motor is not correctly wired to the terminal block. Carefully review the connection diagram for the line and load leads and the timer clock leads. Somewhere in there you made a mistake when connecting the wires. If not there is a defect in the clock mechanism and you should replace it. For warranty information please refer to the instructions or the place you purchased it from for assistance.

most have an overrun built in for a few minutes. if much longer have you got a room thermostat anywhere to turn down
If it never turns off check the switch which controls ON/TIMED/OFF and turn to timed or off. if it still continues on timed then it's the timer
