Question about Franklin Industries Franklin Chef FIM200 Ice Machine

1 Answer

We have a new out of the box machine and the water isn't getting into the water tank. the line has water and pressure, i primed the line, placed water in the holding bin (which produced ice) but the water line still isn't getting water to the machine. is it packed with a plug or something that doesn't allow the water to enter the intake until removed?

If you put water in the tank, water won't come in until the tank is low. plus, it should be cold water. the manual should provide you with information about any plug or what needs to be done before making ice. the manual is invaluable.

Pump will not build enough pressure to shut off. New Bladder Tank set at 38 PSI. New switch set to cut on at 40-42 Psi. New Foot Valve, New Tank, New Pump. Blew line to well water a few days ago. Pump


check the water level in the well as it may be too deep for the pump to lift the water and maintain the pressure. Are you using a straight pump or an injection pump that helps lift the water to the pump. remember that centrifugal pumps only supply a vacuum in the suction line and atmospheric pressure on the water does the rest. when the weight of the water is equal to the pressure of the air the pump will not lift any more

NO COLD WATER


"Solenoid". No, you probably don't need one. You shouldn't even HAVE one.

I suspect strongly that you need to prime the new pump. There should be a priming plug on the top of the pump. Remove the plug and pour water into it. Replace the plug quickly and turn on the pump immediately.

You may need to do this several times before the pump starts drawing water. You can hear the change in pump sound when it starts moving water.

It does help, while you're priming, to close any valve you find between the pump and the pressure tank. As soon as the pump draws water, slightly open that valve or the pump will cycle on & off very rapidly. When the pressure tank is pretty full of water (you're getting fairly significant pressure on the gauge), open that valve fully.

I always liked to have a globe valve on top of the pump with a bell reducer and cap above that for priming purposes. The globe valve permits VERY fast pump repriming, and the bell reducer acts like a funnel, making it easy to pour water in. With the globe valve closed (normal operation), the cap doesn't even have to be tight - I need no tools to prime my pump that way.

PRIME A GOULD PUMP


whats your question how to prime the pump? if so at the bottom is a 3/4 inch plug screwed into it, or at top, once the pump is hooked up to the lines turn off the power, and unscrew the prime plug fill with water, then screw in tight DO NOT USE THREAD SEALANT THEN THROW THE POWER TO THE PUMP, of course house supply valve must be off 3/4 turn valve off until the line is primed then open the supply line to house slowly to supply the water to all the lines, NOTE WHEN YOU FIRST INSTALL A NEW PUMP, HAS TO BE PRIMED, HAVE TO HAVE SUPPLY LINES FROM WELL TO HOUSE CLOSED TO PRESSURE THE TANK AND TO FILL THE LINES.

Nespresso Maestria pump isn't primed


We had the same problem and were ready to return the device when we were able to fix it. Here is what we did:
1. Fill the water tank all of the way and place in machine
2. Let the tank sit in position for a few hours (we let ours sit for 3)
3. Run the descaling option
4. Run a few cycles of the "longo"
5. If the machine is still not working repeat the process (Ours started to run after the 2nd cycle)

It just appears that the pumps are shipping with air in them and needs patience to get it out. Once you get it going though you won't regret it :)

What does prime mean on keurig coffee maker?


Prime means.... pumping. In other words the water in the machine goes through a water pump. That pump, pumps the water from the fresh water container in your machine and pumps it up through the machine, then goes into a heating element that heats the water and then of course flows over the coffee or tea that you put in your machine to give you a nice cup of hot tea or coffee. Priming is in a sense getting the air out or allowing the water to start flowing. If you have a vapor lock or air lock, you need to prime it to kind of help this pump start pulling the water up to the coffee.

Hello, this is common. The pumps on these machines are not real good pressure. Sometimes you have to help it prime for the pump to work.
So one very good way to solve the problem is to turn the machine on and lift the water reservoir up just a couple of inches and then jam it back in place fast and hard. With this way is like it injects just enough pressure into the system to open the check valve and when the motor pump will run you will realize that immediately water will passing through from reservoir to brewer tank. This procedure has to be done often between cups.

From what we seen in internet their hundreds about the same problem but we have not see any serious response about it From Keurig's customer service yet.
One other important and related problem frequently reported is the irregulars doses of coffee like HALF-FILLED CUPS of coffee e.t.a

This must be redesign from Keuring factory since there is not much we can do about it to solve once for all even if they will replace your machine with a new one you will have the same problem in few weeks. And definitely this not a problem due your Electricity in your area or due to hard water. However hard water areas will face bigger and more intensive the above problem so one more suggestion is to descaling the machine every week this will help a lot.

If you find the above helpful please remember to vote for it Thanks Mike

Have installed a 1/2 HP wayne jet pump, getting water ,


If we go down the list of possible causes, it may help;
  • All fitting on the new pump and jet are tight.
  • No break in the well line
  • FOOT valve operating OK. If the foot valve is not operating correctly, the pump can lose its prime and **** air into the system.
  • New pump has been purged of air(primed adequately)
  • holding tank has appropriate pre charge
  • bladder in holding tank not ruptured.
