Are you sure the ballcock is correctly adjusted to fill the tank to the required level? The float should have a screw on it which changes the height at which the valve is closed. if set too low you may not get enough head of water to feed the system. If set too high the tank will overflow.

This video deals with a toilet (WC) cistern but the principal is the same for any ballcock valve system.

HOW TO CHANGE A BALLCOCK ON COMMODE


HOW TO REPLACE A BALLCOCK ON A WATER CLOSET, COMMODE: FIRST SHUT WATER OFF TO COMMODE. THER WILL BE A WATER SHUTOFF VALVE BETWEEN THE FLOOR AND THE COMMODE ON THE WATER LINE TO YOUR BALLCOCK, TURN WATER OFF, FLUSH COMODE SO YOU CAN CLEAR MOST ALL OF THE WATER OUT OF IT. THEN UNCREW THE NUT FOR THE WATER SUPPLY, THEN UNSREW THE NUT FOR THE BALLCOCK ITSELF, OPEN THE TOP OF THE COMMODE, YOU WILL SEE A FLAPPER ON THE BALLCOCK, REMOVE IT, THEN TAKE THE BALLCOCK OUT, SOME HAVE A ROD AND FLOAT SOME DO NOT, EITHER WAY IF IT DOES WHEN YOU PUT THE BALLCOCK BACK IN THE SAME WAY THE OLD ONE CAME OUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE GASKET ON WHEN YOU STICK THE END OF THE BALLCOCK BACK, TIGHTEN THE NUT, THEN MAKE SURE YOUR WASHER IS IN THE NUT ON THE WATER LINE AND RE CIONNECT WATER LINE, YOU CAN ADUST FLOAT VALVE BY BENDING THE ROD DOWN TO THE AMOUNT OF WATER YOU WILL WANT CONNECT FLAPPER BACK, TO THE NEW BALLCOCK, IF THE BALLCOCK DOES NOT HAVE A FLOAT, YOU CAN ADJUST PER INSTRUCTION, SO AFTER ALL THIS IS DONE AND TUBE IS CONNECTED FROM BALLCOCK TO THE TOP OF IT WITH CLIP, TO DIRECT YOUR FILL WATER, TURN YOUR WATER ON AND ADJUST SOME MORE IF NEED BE, UNTILL YOUR CORRECT AMOUNT OF WATER IS LIKE YOU WANT IT...THIS IS REALLY EASY COMPARED TO PAYING A PLUMBER FOR THIS JOB, AND IT HAS TO BE DONE QUITE OFTEN, LARRY VEAL MASTER PLUMBER TEXAS

Can't get system fill message off jura impress z5


My guess would be that your water tank float is trapped.
The remidy would be to descale the watertank itself.
If you use the Calris filter cartridge. remove it before descaling with a mild commercially available descaler. Don't forget to rinse thorrowly afterwards and reinsert the filter. Always use cold water to fill the watertank.
Hope this helps

I installed a new ballcock assy and float. the toilet fills and shuts off but i can still hear an intermittant water flow. there were no instructions with the new valve so i dont know how to adjust.this is...


Without knowing what type of ballcock assembly you used I can't tell you how to adjust it. However there is one easy thing that you can check. If you have a plastic line going from the ballcock to fill/overflow in tank make sure that the bottom of that line is not below the water in the tank or it can create a siphon and make the water to run a small amount nostop. Hope this helps you. Have a good day and thank you.

When i discale my Z5 the machine stops after cleaning the caputower and then stays in his programm and doesn't go fearther. What can I do to make the programm go to the end.


Be sure to measure up the correct amount of water before starting up the descaling program. It should be 600ml. Then be aware that the program takes about 45 minutes, and is in two steps. The first 35 minutes is for the 600ml in the watertank. You will then be asked to empty tray, and fill watertank. You can now fill up the watertank with fresh, cold water. Then the machine will complete the program (about 10 minutes) with fresh water, rinsing the system.

So; Be accurate in measuring the correct amount of water (solvent)-600ml
and be patient, this takes about 45 minutes.

I've got a problem with my Saeco Vienna Digital. It says that I've got to fill the watertank and ventilate. But the watertank is filled, that little 'thing' in the corner of the watertank is still going up...


Check the end of the steam wand it might be blocked, if it is not, then remove the steam wand and check the top there is a small teflon insert (this part is in some models) remove insert and toss. If that does not solve problem then machine needs to be descaled.
