Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

The water temperature is too low and is there a procedure for cleaning out particles (a flush) for either the heating element or flow switch? Where can I get a manual for the unit?

SOURCE: Kenmore coldspot refrigerator

checked the pump action????its a water valve powered by 110v.se if you can rig a test cord and plug into the valve itself see if you get water then. also check to tubing leading to the ice maker for possibly being frozen, as a result of poor water flow in the first place

SOURCE: Cannot get the heating element to turn off properly on Lasko 5620

From whatI have seen on base board heaters if I recall correctly, the thermostat may be sepperate. Usually thermostats on these have a round knob. 1 line goes to this and the other side of the thermostat goes to 1 end of th element and the othe line attaches to the other side of the element. Its possible you have the element wired in directky if it came without a thermostat and without instructions it may till be connected directly. You should have an L1 and L2 connection and hope there is a wire diagram on the cover.
THE reason these basebord heaters used to come without a thermostat is because they are (OR WERE)set up to add on additional heaters comming right on down the wall. At the last one you could tie in and get a correct rated thermostat installed in the center of the series.
Return to LOWES and ask them to remove the instructions and copy them for you from another like model. Or have them contact the manufacturer and request they fax a copy of instructions with a diagram. Also ask if the heater comes with a thermostat. It may stoill be sepperate in another kit.

SOURCE: Low flow indicator light comes on chronically.

If you have excessive calcium in your pool the calcium will solidify on your titanium plates. Look for little bits of white scale (looks like paint chips) in the pool usually by the outflow. To fix, unplug the chlorinator, remove the inflow and outflow hoses from the chlorinator, also remove the flow meter (piece of pipe that has the wire attached to it. Look in at the titanium plates. If it has white calcium coating it, then flush with the hose till it all comes off, if it doesn't come off remove that piece of PVC and soak in vinegar (haven't had to do that but thats what the manual says). Manuall says to drain 25% of your pool and refill with fresh water but I elected to just keep cleaning it out when the alarm went off untill all the calcium in the water turned to solid (had to clean 3 or 4 times). Be sure and vacuum up the calcium in the pool.

No hot water in shower. Sometimes runs hot then goes cold or runs cold. I have less than 2 year old Kohler Faucet K-T10448-4-CP. I replaced the pressure balance valve unit. No luck. I changed the hot...


Refer to the manufacturer's recommendations for back-flushing/descaling to flush out mineral deposits and build-up in the heat exchanger. You can check to see if this is a problem by comparing the full cold water flow with full hot water flow at the faucet. If the hot water flow is significantly slower than the cold then the heat exchanger is likely clogged with deposits and will not transfer heat sufficiently. If the flow is good then the heating element(s) maybe defective.

Heater is very poor


Has the vehicle been run with anti-freeze its whole life? If not, then flush heater matrix.

With vehicle in cold state, disconnect heater matrix feed and return pipes from within engin bay. Turn the vehicle's internal temperature setting to hot. If the vehicle is fitted with climate control, then do this with the ignition in the 'on' position.

Take a garden hose and with low pressure first, try flushing the matrix. If the water pressure is not enough to flow through matrix at low to medium pressure, then a blockage is almost a certainty. If water does not flow at first, then try using a high pressure air-line to force air and any blockage material through the matrix and out of the exit pipe. You can also reverse the flow to blow or flush any dirt out of the other end.

Once all is clean and free flowing, reconnect and fill entire system with a 50-50 anti freeze-water solution.

If blockage cannot be resolved, then replace heater matrix.

If no blockage is present then continue to check heater control switches and wires.

On our AE125, the thermal cut-off is tripping AFTER the water is turned off. The heating element is getting so hot you cannot touch it


The elements are getting over heated then set temperature.You have a defective thermostat. The elements will continue to heat until they reach the set point of the thermostat. Try to lower the temp setting first. If that does not fix it, you'll need to repalce the thermostat, located very near the element, under the screwed cover on the side of the tank.------------- To know how this heater works, read as follows:---

Because electric tankless water heaters have to instantaneously raise the temperature of incoming water to a selected hot water temperature, they require very powerful heating elements. To power the heating elements of this 27,000 Watt model, you will need to upgrade the electrical service you were using for your storage tank water heater. The PowerStar AE125 will require a 240V, 200 Amp service. In addition you will need to install three 40 amp dedicated double pole breakers in your electrical box. In Canada, you will require one 120 Amp breaker.

The PowerStar AE125 electric tankless water heater incorporates a very sensitive flow sensor, and three heating elements. The heat from the electric elements is electronically modulated on the basis of the flow rate of the water entering the water heater, and the temperature rise that the water heater must achieve. Through its electronic modulation system, the AE125 maintains a very precise hot water temperature. As a safety precaution, each of the three heating modules is protected by an electro-mechanical thermal cut-out. This device will cut power to a particular module if the temperature gets too hot.

I have a ATLAS COPCO GA 160 w at my work and it is shutting down on high element temprature. I noticed that the oil level in the seperator is low and have topped it up a few times but everytime i run it...


Without more info or knowing your compressor my first question to you is,is the oil cooler clean and does the unit have good water flow. DO you have good water flow / pressure. The oil level should be about half way the sight glass running loaded. If the oil level was low ,when the thermostat opens it allows oil to flow to the cooler which lowers the oil level.Typical problems during this time of year are , , dirty oil cooler, Faulty thermostat, Faulty element temperature sensor, Low oil levels and bad oil. Also dirty oil filters restrict oil flow and can cause high element temp. problems. Try back flushing the water side of the oil cooler. Have you checked to make sure the water solenoid is opening. May have a bad coil or valve. May also have water solenoid plugged with something. What is the cooling water inlet temp and outlet temp. The W usually indicates water cooled. If not water cooled, most of the above also applies to air cooled units. just replace water with air if it fits.

1999 Taurus-NO HEAT-replaced thermostat,flushed heater core,still NO HEAT,ANY SUGGESTIONS?


Sounds like the problem has to be the valve is not opening and thus not allowing the hot coolant to enter the heater coil. Manualy open the valve (engine firewall) and see if heat is present. If this works check your cable from the dash switch as it isn't working the valve properly and needs replacing.

HM603222A moffat dishwasher...not cleaning dishes. Food particles are being circulated around and drying on dishes


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

The heater core may very well be plugged and in need of replacement. a repair centre can confirm that.
