When I add water to my Bissell Symphony, it runs right back out on floor


So it sounds like you have either a split in the water reservoir or the tube connecting the reservoir to the heating elements has come off. Looking up parts I couldn't find a new reservoir available. I also don't know how hard it would be to get at the connecting tube and see if it came loose. There should be an access panel, either on the back of the unit or accessible by removing the dirt bin. Then I would pour some more water into it and see where the water is leaking out. If it is coming out the bottom where the steam is supposed to come out then I think the steam chamber has cracked from the heat of the elements. If this is the case, from the reviews I have read (you are not the first to have this issue) then the cost to fix it is going to be higher than getting a new one. I have noticed many many complaints that this item only seems to last for a 2 year period. I don't know how long you have owned the unit. If it is new you may be able to return it for a new unit.

I have vapour / steam coming out of my oil dipstick tube on my 1.8 diesel Ford Galaxy, is this to do with a faulty / worn pcv unit. Would this also contribute to poor starting if the valve is faulty?


The PCV allows one way flow and vents pressure (gases) from the engine and sends them to the intake side of the air breather for re-introduction into the air intake system of the engine.
A non-working or stopped up PCV can cause a build up of pressure, which must vent somewhere. The oil dip stick is often the choice, especially if there is not a tight seal at the top of the tube.
White smoke or steam/ vapor usually means water is entering the internal workings of the engine. Head gasket leaks, cracked heads, and cracked blocks are the common source of such entry. Also water leaking into a cylinder will cause hard or poor starting as the piston is working against the volume displacement of the water. Upon cranking any water so leaking will be exited through the exhaust system and leave the vehicle as a white vapor out of the tailpipe.
Considering that most diesel engines have some "blow by", some water may be expelled out the PCV circuit.

Filler tube in back leaks or shoots off fitting going to ice maker


WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Ice maker is splashing water all over back of freezer and it builds up til the fan starts to make noise if I turn it off and defrost the ice it will start up noise free til the ice builds again.


What is the model number of your unit? When the ice builds up, does the ice just build up where it is splashing or is the ice also building up behind the back wall of the freezer?

Thank you! Richard

I have considerable steam coming from the area of the rad cap. Temp gauge doesn`t indicate any overheating issues and the coolant reservoir is within the desired fill. However, coolant reservoir it has...


It may be the radiator cap itself, but is most likely a crack that has formed around of near the radiator, causing steam to exit from this area. It seems like it is a small leak, otherwise the coolant loss would not be so gradual. Radiator replacement will most likely solve this problem after the radiator is inspected and a crack is found. I do not recommend the use of Stop leak to correct leaking radiators, in the long run, they do more harm than good.

Why is my washer reservoir leaking? Fills about 1/2 way and runs out and I can't see where its coming from


If you had just plain water in there and that water froze, it would have expanded and cracked the reservoir. You will have to remove and look at the reservoir to see if it is cracked.

the water jackets are part of the casting of the engine block they surround the cylinders water jackets dont corrode away they clog or if they are leaking u have a cracked engine block if u are getting antifreeze into oil and steam out of exhaust more than likely its a head gasket-- because if u crack a water jacket that usually means a blown engine and need to replace or rebuild ---and the additive usually works for radiator leaks and some minor head gasket leaks

Water leaking out of bottom of machine overnight. Stills brews but leaking water from reseviour in back


Suspect the 'pump' tube that runs from the reservoir bottom up to the grounds basket. It may be cracked or the end clamp on the tube is weak, broken, or misplaced on the tube. Check the reservoir for a cracked base or fitting. Remove the bottom plate to get to this. (unplug the cord).

Water leaks


If there is water leaking from under the washer, then you have a water leak from one of your water hoses. Check the back of the washer, where the water comes into the washer, to see if its leaking water or the hose is cracked. If its leaking water from the intake hose, then unscrew the hose and check the rubber washer, to see if it needs reolaced. Sometimes those rubber washers get cracked or broken. If that doesn't help, unplug your washer from the power cord and unscrew your intake water hoses and flip the washer gently on it's side and check the water hoses under the washer for leaks or cracks. Replace the hoses if cracked. Your local hardware store should have replacement hoses. This should solve your problem, but if not, then you need to call a washer repair person to look at it. I hope this helps.:)

My 7142 leaks


There are a few hose connections inside the unit related to the heater element. Water flows from the reservoir down into the unit, takes a turn into a tube with the heater element wrapped around it, then turns back up into the mister area. Any of the four connections (base to first elbow, elbow to heater tube, heater tube to second elbow or second elbow to base) could be leaking.
The white ring around the mister disk cracked on my unit, letting water leak out the bottom as you describe... Take a close look at that.
It's also possible the base itself is cracked somewhere... Look closely at the mister and reservoir areas of the base for cracks.
