Freestanding marvel ice maker leaks water. is there a universal water overflow pump valve that would stop the overflow of water

just a thought
if you have the room in the container, consider a water level control unit such as is used to cisterns
they are self contained units that are adjustable for the water level required and fit in a space of around 3" dia and about 12" high

What would cause the icemaker to suddenly start overfilling?

The water flow timer is in the ice maker under the cover. It is a tiny hole that a pocket screw driver will fit in. Use a small blade screwdriver to adjust . Move it only a very small amount to the left and watch the level. If,after several attempts at adjusting and it still overflows, look at the water inlet solenoid for internal leaking.

Ive replaced 3 toilet fill valve with 440a Fluid master fill valves height is good water level good.After a while it sounds like there is leak by from all toilet.Flappers have been replaced. What coul

check the overflow pipe in the cistern tank as some fill valves do not stop completely but allow input of water after the noise has stopped. This allows the water level to rise up and the water to flow out into the toilet bowl. Reduce the water level height by adjusting the cut off level and when the water rises past the new level the increase pressure on the valve will shut it off.

How to change water level ?

The level is determined by a floating device connected to the water valve. Some are on an angled arm and some move up and down.
Determine how your valve is shut off and either change the big round float or adjust the clips on the rising one.
Just keep the level below the overflow and the flush handle to avoid a running toilet or a leak.

Water will not turn off

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve If the washer is overflowing and power is shut off to the washer, the water inlet valve has failed. Replace it.
Pressure Switch If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Low Water Pressure from House Supply If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.

Float is adjusted to the proper height but water continues to slowly rise until it reaches the overflow

Hi lucy edwards...
Change the inlet valve (ballcock) it is leaking and non-repairable
Once you replace your ballcock with a new one and set the water level that will solve your problem.

Fluid level keeps rising n the tank, eventually leaking through the flush handle. How do you lower the flush level to stop?

First of all, the overflow tube should be lower than the flush handle hole. If not, any malfunction will cause this.
Secondly, every fill valve is different. On some, you have to lower the ball float.
or, some have a screw at the top of the fill valve to adjust water level.
or some you have to rotate the body of the valve to set the height.
Also, if the level rises slowly, there may be debris in the valve or the valve should be replaced.

Did you replace the flush valve or the flapper?

There must either be a problem with the seal between the two surfaces of the flapper and flush valve or the flapper is being prevented by the flush system to returning to make a seal against the flush valve after the water completes draining during the flush cycle or more likely water is draining through the overflow tube.

Make sure the sealing surfaces are clean and not damaged.

Make sure the flapper is not being interfered with and is able to return to the closed position to make a complete seal against the flush valve.

Check adjustment of the water fill level to make sure the water is not filling above the water overflow. If the inlet valve does not shut-off when the level is adjusted to the proper level the water inlet valve may need replacing.

I've just fitted a Nabis breeze and am having flushing problems.

Well many toilets flush very high before flushing, they appear to almost overflow, but if that doesn't seem like your problem, I would recommend adjusting the float on the Fluid-master fill valve so that there is less water in the tank when it flushes.
