If this is just on the outside faucet then you probably have a shut off in the house for winter/maintenance shut down. Look in the ceiling from the basement where the pipes come in and follow that until you see a valve. Turn it on and you should have water. Most of the times the shut off is just inside the wall from where the faucet is.

My Simpson ezi sett 7.5 always fills to full even when set to low. i have replaced the pressure switch and still fills to full.


Check the rubber hose from the pressure switch down to the bowl for any holes or splits allowing the air pressure to escape. Also check that water valve is stopping the flow. Start to fill then press pause. Water flow should stop immediately. If it keeps flowing or is slow to stop then replace the inlet valve. Try it several times to be sure.

Keep getting a E4 Code


This E4 Phenomena means "no water":
No or slow water fill (not
reaching the full level in 15 min),
therby computer sends display message "E4"
Reasons:
1) The house water tap is not open, or
2) This is the most common E4 reason- The water inlet valve (that the hose is connected to) is blocked.
3) The water pressure is too low and the flow is too weak.
Solutions;
1) Open the water tap, then push the START/PAUSE button again.
2) Clean the water inlet valve. Shut off house water supply on the wall then, unscrew (lefty loosy) each hose from the house and the machine and look for a screen and clean the junk away from the screens. You may have 1 or 2 screens depending on the hose there may be 1 screen where the hose connects to the house and another screen inside the machine valve. Then, return hoses and turn on the water pressure again, Then push the START/PAUSE button again.
3) Wait for the normal water pressure to return to the house before use.

Very slow flow of water when the power is on?


Make sure water supply valves are not stuck half way. Test flow by attaching a hose to each valve and opening with full pressure to an empty bucket. If flow is good for each valve (hot and cold). You much check the troubleshooting steps in you manufacture specific operator's manual.

Slow ice cycle


Are you having any temperature related symptoms, i.e., soft ice cream that appears to have melted slightly and refrozen, soft breads in the freezer, warm or hot outer surfaces anywhere? If cooling is not a problem whatsoever, are any of your ice cubes smaller than normal, or do you have hollow ice cubes; you would be able to crush the cubes in your hand? If either of these pertains to you, you have not enough water coming to the ice maker, due to a faulty water valve not opening completely, or your water source pressure is low. disconnect your water line from the fridge, test pressure of the water line by placing end in a bucket, turning water on. It will be obvious how the pressure is. if pressure is good to really good, you have a bad water valve on the fridge. If pressure is so-so to bad, change source water valve.
If cubes are not small nor hollow, but rather normal full size cubes, just not enough, you probably have an intermittent problem with your icemaker, replace that.

No water from well.


If the water pressure reads 50 psi, then, the submersible pump is running okey. Do these:
1. Shut the power off.
2. Release the pressure of the tank by opening the
gate valve and free the air inside.
3.Drain the water inside your pressure tank empty by
opening the drain plug at the bottom.
4. Then, replace the drain plug .
5. Check the flow control valve. From full close
position, adjust to 1/4 open position. However, if it
is using a gate valve as flow control, Just open two
full turn counter clockwise.
6. Put the power on.
7. And start the submersible pump and allow it to
run until the pressure tank is pressurized.
8. At 20 psi pressure, open your faucet, and see if
you've got water.

I would like to know the result, so just send in your e-mail . Thanks and God bless you.

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.

Three possible reasons for low pressure. 1. faucet cartridge has debris in valve body. 2. aerator has debris ,just unscrew and clean out. 3. Water valves under sink are not opened up. hope this helps
