How to replace floating ball

The floating ball that normally wiggles when the pump is running is stuck. How should I go about replacing the ball and gasket? The tank also has bleach water in it. I do not want to start unscrewing stuff and have a bleach water flood.

Hear the motor to dishwasher turn on, but no water is running. I have checked to make sure that water supply is conected.

Open the door and look for the water level float in the bottom of the dishwasher. Make sure nothing is stuck under the float and wiggle it up and down to make sure it moves freely then try starting the dishwasher again to see if it fills.
If the dishwasher still does not fill you may need to replace the water inlet valve. If you have a volt meter you could check the water inlet valve to see if it is getting voltage.
If the valve is getting voltage, but does not open to let water in then replace the valve.
If your float is not stuck chances are you will need to replace the water valve.

We just installed the Cimerron two piece. After flushing the toilet, it will not stop running. Water just goes into the over flow section.

  • The exact cause of a Kohler Cimarron toilet running non-stop depends on the exact model of toilet owned. In some, the lift chain connected to the handle can become kinked, preventing the ball seal from covering the drain completely. Just unkink the chain to fix this. In other cases, the float ball is stuck against the side of the tank, preventing it from returning to its normal horizontal position. When this happens, the toilet's tank doesn't stop filling with water. The excess continuously flows into the overflow pipe. Dislodge the float ball from the side of the toilet and this should clear the problem. Likewise, you might consider shortening the armature on which the float ball sits, so it won't become stuck again.

    Pump will not shut off

    Either the float has gone bad or the float is stuck...
    give it a kick or a slap and see if that dislodges the float...
    If the pump continues to run, open it up and make sure the float has dropped...if it has then the float will need to be replaced...

    Dishwasher wont run water or turn off

    This sounds like the float switch is stuck or bad. You might be able to wiggle the float or float rod around to free it up. Otherwise you will need to check the float switch itself and replace. This is easy and inexpensive. This link will walk you thru checking and replacing the float switch. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. If you need a diagram or illustration of your specific model enter your model # there.

    How to troubleshoot toilet sump pump?

    Unplug the sump pump. Bail out the sump pump to expose the pump's machinery.

    Inspect the rod attached to the motor on the top of the sump pump. Move it up and down manually to see if it moves smoothly. Corrosion will keep the rod from moving smoothly. Clean the float road with steel wool.

    Inspect the float ball. If it contains water, you need to replace it. Unscrew the float ball from the end of the float rod and screw on a replacement float ball.

    Inspect your sump pump's check valve. It has an arrow on it. The arrow should be pointing away from the pump. If it's pointing towards the pump, remove and reinstall the check valve.

    Locate the small weep hole between the check valve and the pump. Clean it out with a pipe cleaner.

    Inspect the impeller, which is the fan-like piece that sits near the bottom of the pump's tank. If it is clogged by debris, then it will not turn properly. Unbolt the impeller and clean away any debris you find. Reinstall the impeller with new gaskets and sealant. Locate and replace the mesh filter in the sump pump, since only a damaged or missing filter would allow debris to get near the impeller.
    Below is troubleshooting work, web link, through to assist you in that.
