Low water pressure


Hi Bob,

You can determine if the tank is the problem by connecting a garden hose to the drain that is provided on most water heaters. Before doing this, be sure to shut of the electrical supply to the heater - otherwise you can damage heating elements if an electric type or waste fuel by heating an empty tank if a gas / propane fired type.

If you get a slow flow out of this drain, it means that somewhere in the cold water supply side to / in the tank - there is a problem. Inside the tank, the cold water is delivered by a "dip tube" that distributes the cold water to the bottom in the tank. Dip tubes are used in both electric and gas / propane fueled heaters. Here's a cut away view of a typical tank:

If the tube is clogged, or there is build up, scale or debris in the supply (cold water) side of the heater, flow rates will suffer. Likewise, if there is a problem with the output of the tank, it will directly affect flow as well.

If you get a good flow rate from the drain, then the issue is going to be on the hot water output side of the heater. Again, the same build up, scale, debris issues on the hot water out put pipe will cause problems with flow. Typcial tanks do not have dip tubes for the hot water side of the tank - as taking hot water from the top of the tank is most desireable and is furthest away from the cold water that rushes in to make up the hot hot water going out.

There's nothing really in the tank itself that can cause issues with flow outside of the dip tube, and piping to and from the tank.

Good luck!

How to fix fill water shooting up and over when flushing?


I don't exactly know what you mean so i will cover all the basics. The fill valve sends fills water in 2 locations. 1) the fill valve fills at the low end (from the bottom to the top) of the tank. This is the flush water level. It needs to be stopped by a float switch before the water overflows into the over flow tube.
2) the fill valve fills water via a small tube at the top of it which this tube NEEDS to be pointed into the overflow tube with a high arch. THIS water is filling your toilet bowl section to proper flushing height. If your water in your bowl does not reach proper height and someone removes this tube to aim it into the tank where the other water is stored, THEN you may have the problems you described and you will need to do several flushes to remove waste.
SO to reiterate 1) make sure your float cuts off and stops the filling cycle before the water flows into the over flow tube. This is done from 1 or 2 adjustment screws. and 2) make sure the small black tube is aimed down into the over flow tube with a good arch. The arch prevents back siphon.

Ge side by side refrigerator/freezer. Water flow is very slow from water dispenser. I have changed the water filter but water flow is still very slow. What might the problem be?


Could be low water pressure coming into the refrigerator or some kind of partial blockage in the water tubing within the refrigerator. I would first check at the on-off valve that connects the house water to the refrigerator tubing. Turn off the valve, disconnect it from the refrigerator line, hold the valve over a bucket, and open the valve. Does the water flow look good? The openings in these valves are very small and are easily stopped up with mineral deposits.

If the water flow is good at the valve, the problem is somewhere within the refrigerator tubing. I have found that plastic weedeater line is good for opening up blockages in these lines.

I have a General Humidifier Model 1042-L that is leaking water out of the bottom pan. How do I fix this?


Check the bottom of the drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the bottom end of the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray may be clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

Also, if the humidifier has not been used in a long while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube. Tell the spider to find a new home.

Another possible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.

And lastly, is the unit installed properly, parallel to the ground? If tilted, water flowing through the unit may catch the sides and flow out where it should not.

No flow of water


You can use any readily available tubing, but don't use sealants - they make their way into the water.

Ice maker isn't filling with water. Water is on and ice maker is on. It's been humid.


Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow


I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.
