SOURCE: waterproof system activated. close stopcock. The

Hi, it's caused by a leak of water into the tray at the bottom, which activates a sensor to shut the water in flow off and thus prevent a flood. The fix is as for a posting by halldor to a question about the w4146 - ie. Turn off and unplug, drain by the filter plug, lean the machine forward - the water flows out the bottom, plug in and it should work. You do need to establish the cause of the leak first. Mine was a draw cord on some trousers dangling out of the door, thus preventing a proper seal, the water dribbled down the front and into the tray. Miele stated it could only be fixed by their service mechanics

I have a Miele W 2389. Message saying waterproof system has activated. Turn off stop ****. What does it mean?


Hi Dear. Seems like your machine had internal leak. Float switch has been activated. That triggers error message on the display. What you can do is: Tilt the machine 45 degree (Back or forward which ever easy for you) wait for leaked water come out underneath the machine. If water comes out of machine, it's a indication of one of the plastic component failed(it could be drain hose- tub to pin trap hose- may be inlet valve etc....) If there is no water coming out of machine, float switch may be malfunctioning. In that cases you need to contact Miele center to get help.Thanks.

My miele wt 2679 wpm has appeared waterproof system activated.how to deactivate it.


Make sure the door is closed, then pull the plug out of the wall or turn off the 15 A breaker at the panel for 30 secondsd, then plug back in, or turn the breaker back on.

This is like a hard boot for a computer or to clear a problem which is locked like this.

That is the first easier fix to try first.

I hope this may help!

My miele dishwasher shows intake/drain light flashes, it seems to me that drain works but no water goes into the dishwasher


hi, firstly check the filter in the waterproof system where the tap is to make sure it is not blocked. turn off the water and remove the connection with the white box attached this is the waterproof system. remove the black seal and you will see the filter. pull it out with a pair of pliers and clean it.

if this is ok check to see if you have a restrictor on the tap or inside the tap and also make sure water is flowing from the tap prior to reconnecting the waterproof system.
run the unit again and when it is time for the machine to call for water you can manually fill it and see if it works using a saucepan or bucket. if this works ok you may have a stuck waterproof system and probably need to replace this.
Hope this helps

My miele touchtronic w 3039 will not start. the waterproof system activated keeps blinking in the display window with the start button blinking as well and beeping


Hi,

Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.

You may just have over sudded the unit by using the wrong detergent or too much. After you have the unit running again test the unit with no detergent and see if you activate the waterproof system again. if you do then you will probably have a split hose inside the unit.

IS THIS CAMERA WATERPROOF AND HO DO U TURN ON THE FLASLIGHT


No, the camera is not waterproof.


Touch the lightning bolt icon area until the flash icon appears on the left side of the display. This will activate the flash.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the flash symbol appears on the LCD screen. This forces the flash function.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the eyeball icon appears on the left. This activates the red-eye reduction mode.

To turn off the flash, touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the no-flash icon (lightning bolt inside a circle) appears on the left.

This is covered on pages 13-14 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://vivitar.com

Simply disconnect it. Water completes the circuit - so you want to make sure it is open.

I have a TWX955 cordless phone. one of the recievers is a waterproof phone. Instructions said the rechargeable battery was already in the phone. (all of the other phones required me to install the battery...


Take the cradle for the waterproof phone and plug it into the outlet close to the answering machine base. Hold the waterproof phone in one hand, with the other press the "menu" button, press up to the "register phone", then press "menu" again. The answering machine base should say "registering phone". Once it does press the "#" key on the waterproof phone and it should say registering phone. When they beep the waterproof phone should be working. The reset instructions in the owners manual may work if you move the WP phone and cradle close to the base. I stumbled onto this method after reading about a newer model. As i took the WP phone downstairs the # key would activate the registering feature but would when I walked back upstairs. So i figured Id take both downstairs and BAMMM, it worked. Good Luck all! BTW mine came with a battery, and uniden probably hasnt figured this out either.

MIele waterproof system reacted


That means that there is a leak that passed throught the waterproof system, and the water protection system had reacted putting the machine on error mode, as the water can damage electric parts, and cause serious hazard.

Sometimes you can reset the error by unplugging power cord, however you should call immediately a technician, as using the appliance when there is a problem with the waterproof system, you can be seriously injured by electric shock.
