Leaking Orbit Watermaster 3/4 anti-siphon sprinkler valves Model 57623. Please read the details below.....

We just installed 3 Orbit Watermaster 3/4 anti-siphon sprinkler valves Model 57623. They are brand new. Each one of them leaks a little water from the top of the valve in the seam area where the two pieces meet where the diaphragm is located. These pieces are connected with several screws. PROBLEM: There are always small drops outside this area on all 3 valves. It leaks enough to dampen the dirt underneath. MY QUESTION IS: Is it normal to have a small amount of water leaking from this area? Could it be that the screws that connect the top and bottom are not tight enough? Or, are the valves supposed to be completely dry with no leaking whatsoever? As I said, the 3 valves are brand new and we aren't sure if this leaking is normal. Please help ! THANKS AND BLESSINGS !

SOURCE: Brass Champion Sprinkler Valve

The lowest sprinkler head usually leaks until all the water is out of the system. The valve that controls the sprinkler system has a vaccum breaker valve on it. When there is no pressure from the water main the vaccum valve opens allowing the sprinklers to leak water so the house water won't get contaminated from the grass and dirt in your yard.

SOURCE: Danby counter top dishwasher leaks

This might help with disassembly. Mine was leaking also, but my main problem was no spray. Use my disassembly instructions to remove the pump/motor. If you notice that the leakage is from the pump and not a loose connection, remove the pump cover and apply a thin bead of Blue RTV sealant to the rubber ring. This stopped the leak in my pump.
________________________________
My Danby dishwasher (DW) stopped working. The spray arm stopped spinning completely and very little water was coming out of the arm. When I removed the spray arm (CAUTION: reverse threaded, turn CW to loosen and CCW to tighten) and ran the DW, very little water was spraying out of the pump.

I thought maybe the pump was clogged. So, I followed the recommendations I had seen online about running a few cycles with Vinegar to clear the crud from the pump, but this did not help.

It seemed like the motor was operating, and there were no strange smells to indicate the motor was burned…just no water spraying. So I thought it must be the pump. Before disassembly, I tried to locate a replacement pump. I searched far and wide, both locally and online, and could not locate a replacement pump. So with nothing to lose, I decided to disassemble the DW, take a look and see what I could find. I am glad that I did.

The bottom line is that I disassembled the dishwasher and found that the plastic pump impeller had worked its way off the pump shaft and was not turning. I forced some Teflon plumbers tape over the shaft and forced the impeller back onto the shaft. The impeller has a flat spot to line up with the shaft and I pushed the impeller down on the shaft as far as it would go. I then used a small socket to fit over the shaft and GENTLY tapped the impeller for a final seating. I reassembled the dishwasher and it worked like a charm.

Since I could not find any service manual or instructions online for this DW, I thought I would share my disassembly/reassembly procedure.


Since my instructions are too long to post here, a complete repair document including a link to pictures can be found at:

SOURCE: Hot water heater leaking at the top valvue

I believe the problem you had with the pop off valve is a one time thing since you said you just installed the water h eater

The pop off valve is a pressure relief valve that is activated by build up in the tank from excessive pressure either through too much heat or pressure which works by pressing aginst a spring loaded valve


If you go to the whater heater and look at the valve ther is a handle on it take your hand (stand clear of valve opening) and slowly pull it you will see water start to come out

More than likely a new valve could have had a piece of debris in it or was partially open
re
If the heater was overheating the valve would stay open and you would see extremly hot water rushing out

I do not recommend that you replace the valve unless it continues


Good luck to you

SOURCE: Water leaking from underneath water tank.

I rang Saeco service centre about my leaking water tank and they posted me a new tank - no questions or need to return the faulty item. I believe there may be a bad batch of tanks which leak because of faulty valves.

SOURCE: Water leaking from freezer

Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

Replace the anti-siphon valve

Anti-siphon valves prevent water from siphoning back into the water supply. Also known as vacuum breakers, anti-siphon valves are used on washing machines, faucets, toilets, sprinklers and other water sources. A leak on an anti-siphon valve can cause deterioration of the appliance's external components and damage the flooring material underneath the washing machine. Therefore, a leaking anti-siphon valve should be attended to as soon as possible.

Model 57882 9 station timer I did set up station 1 where do I begin in order to set up station 3


Question is not clear.
Do you have programming problem with the timer?
Or problem locating sprinkler heads?
Or a sprinkler valve problem?
Add a comment with detailed information.

Sprinkler timer turns ON-and-OFF.
Timer does not advance the sprinkler to next station. The sprinkler valve advances to next station when timer turns OFF.
For example, when timer turns ON, then station 1 starts watering.
Timer turns off, and then sprinkler valve automatically advances to station 2.
Timer turns on again, and station 2 starts watering.

There are 3 things this "off power" "light bulb" could be. Blinking red light? means fuse has gone out. Check the power source where the unit is plugged in to. Is the GFI popped out? plug something else like a fan or something into the socket to test. the third thing is a short internally. Call orbit technical assistance. they're great.
