R/o faucet weep hole has a vacuum issue

After changing the two carbon filters, I am hearing a sucking sound at the faucet weep points, both at the backside of the faucet base and if I cover that spot then sound comes from the point where the flexible r/o drain line connects to the fixed sink plumbing. what is causing the vacuum?

Try installing a check valve, or back-flow preventer. Also try getting all the air out of filters, they may have a purge valve or small screw to remove air from system.

Makes loud sucking sound from the side hole


It probably has a clog or restriction somewhere. The sucking noise you hear is likely the suction release valve. You will need to trace the airflow path from Motor to floor to locate the obstruction.

Electrolux el 7020 Canister Vacuum shuts of continuously do i need to Change the Carbon Brushes


How old? If fairly new you should not need brushes, bad brushes would probably not allow the vacuum to run at all. Last time you changed filter? Sounds like the cover to the filter is not closing well enough. There's also possibility you have a clog in the wand or hose.

Mintcraft kitchen faucet # 630-553 leaking from small hole in back of faucet


The hole is very small in the tail pipe and when you throw food, grease, it clogs this hole either partially or fully. When this happens then the water runs all over the sink through the weep hole. Which is the worst design I ever seen. By hand unscrew the black compression nut. Get a pipe cleaner or piece of wire, clean out the tube and especially the drain saddle. Reassemble and problem should be fixed.

My Culligan RO faucet has an ''air gap'' leak. How do I clear the clogged debris causing the water to constantly run? Culligan told me that the Faucet/Air gap is clogged. Need to dislodge the debris.


Normally when it leaks out the weep hole the drain line is plugged under the sink....turn off the ro to where it's not making water, disconnect the drain hose and flush it out....make sure the adapter that's connected to the drain pipe is still lined up with the hole if it was moved the water can't get to the drain.

GE smartwater R.O. system making noise from hole on side of fauce


Probably some gunk clogging the drain line. First step would be to remove the drain line from underneath the sink and check to see that it is clear. If it isn't, the next thing that may happen is when it gets completely clogged, water will start shooting out of the weep hole. As an added measure< i would say to force compressed air down the weep hole to clean out any clog in the line that you can't reach.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
