Just replaced all my hoses did everything i needed to work on a heater and all went well until I turned on my breaker and the top of the tank where the wires are connected started to smoke


it definitely needs to dry out when dry you need to test the components --thermostat--the element [s] --if damaged repair or replace most reasons hot water heaters are replaced is because the tank leaks or rusts out --the components are easily replaceable and inexpensive

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

When I hook of the water hoses to the back of washing machine and turn on the water, water spews out of hose


Hello Ifox5858,

I understand that when you hook up the hose to the back of your washing machine that the water comes out of the hose. The problem that you are having may be because of washers are missing out of the hose ends. You need to take the hoses off and look and see if you have rubber washers in the side that is leaking. The washers are standard water hose washers you can buy at any hardware store.

1. Place washer in hose
2. Install hose hand tight
3. Turn a quarter turn with wrench
4. Turn water on check for leaks if leaking slowly turn tighter to leak stops

This should fix your problem.

Thank you for choosing FIxya.com

When driaining out water comes out


Where does the water come out from? From under machine or where the drain hose hooks to the drain. If it is coming out the drain where the hose hooks the drain is most likely stopped up. If coming from underneath could be a hose or the pump leaking. I have seen something like a screw get caught and wear a hole in the tub. Check around the bottom of the tub if there is water leaking around the bottom of the tub could be the tub seal is bad. Hope this helps.

Solaris Model #06544860 leaking under the sink. How do I remove and how do I figure out exactly what is leaking?


The first thing I would do is to locate source of the leak. Look carefully at faucet when it is on and see if you have any water leaking from areator and running back down the underside of spout and leaking around base of faucet, also see if you have any leaks around handle. If the leak is from the areator you can just replace it and not have to remove the faucet. when you check under sink on faucet supply lines make sure they aren't leaking at that point. I would use paper towels or rags to wipe everything dry under faucet and let it set for 1/2 hour then check again. If it.s still dry run some water and use both hot and cold water seperatly,checking underside in between. If you determine that leak is coming from top side and leaking thru. Shut off water supply valves if available if not shut off supply to house, make sure water is off before proceeding. Disconnect supply lines from faucet,Remove retaing nuts on either side of base,and remove washers. Remove faucet and check for any obvious faults. If you think it was leaking around base get a small tub of plumbers putty. Most hardware stores stock it. Remove a golf ball sized portion or larger and knead in your hands until it is warm and pliable. Press into place in faucet base. Continue doing this until it's full. Reinstall plastic or rubber base gasket and put faucet back in place Put washers and retaing nuts back on a tighten till snug. Center faucet where you want it and tighten securely. Scrape off excess putty with knife point and wipe with paper towels till clean. Hook up supply lines and turn water back on. Check for leaks and good luck. Thank you

When I turn the cold water faucet off water still runs out unless I back it off a quarter of a turn. It is the cold water valve for my tub. It is less than 5 years old. I can remove the decorative bell...


I dont know the modle fauset you have ,but it sounds like your cartridge has turned in the valve body. It should lock into place in the valve body with a tang in the cartridge and a slot or groove in the fauset body. If the whole cartridge assembly turns in the fauset it will couse this problem.

You will need to replace the o rings. Buy the proper kit from your local hardware store. Turn the water off. Remove the handle (screw under top cap0 and the spout will slide up and off. Replace o rings and lube them with plumbers grease or Vaseline.

My 7142 leaks


There are a few hose connections inside the unit related to the heater element. Water flows from the reservoir down into the unit, takes a turn into a tube with the heater element wrapped around it, then turns back up into the mister area. Any of the four connections (base to first elbow, elbow to heater tube, heater tube to second elbow or second elbow to base) could be leaking.
The white ring around the mister disk cracked on my unit, letting water leak out the bottom as you describe... Take a close look at that.
It's also possible the base itself is cracked somewhere... Look closely at the mister and reservoir areas of the base for cracks.

Hot water hook up leaking


hi bigger
turn off the valves disconnect the hose check the threads on the water intake valve(bit the hose screws onto) are not damaged by cross threading. then try wrapping silk plumbing thread tape(available at all plumbong outlets including B&Q,Homebase etc.) around the threads(wind it clockwise and give it plenty)then check the rubber washer at the end of the hose is not damaged of missing and reconnect the hose

New hook up


That vent hose is called a condensation tube. it runs from the right side of the dishwasher up in a loop then back down into the back base of the machine. it allows the dishwasher to breathe in a sense during a wash since it makes a complete seal. if that tube was obstructed or not directed in the up-loop then back down into the base, then it would be possible for water to pressurize through the seals and leak some water onto the floor. kind of like shaking up a new soda bottle. it helps release pressure from the heat. it wont leak water into the base but the tube will accumulate humidity which is normal and will evaporate quickly.
