Question about The Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

My Triton Dove mixer drips. I cleaned flow control cartridge. I could not strip the thermostatic cartridge. Now the water runs constantly with only small variation by turning the flow control knob.

I could not strip the thermostatic cartridge, so simply refitted it. Could I have damaged it or tightened it too much?

SOURCE: Water flow through humidifier

The solenoid that turns on the water to the unit should not change the water flow, so you should get the same amount of water that flows into the solenoid. If you want less water, you can partially close the valve at the water source.

SOURCE: Problem Water Flow in the Cusinart EM-100 Model

I might have answered this one already, but:
Confirm one more time that the knob is lined up with the "o" in the middle - if it is leaning even slightly toward the coffee cup icon or the water/steam icon, water may come forth.

If the knob is perfectly in the middle, then the calibration is probably off (although I can think of one other possibility). Rather than deal with an expensive and warranty-voiding repair, I would just call Cuisinart - that unit has a three-year warranty, and I believe every single one of the EM-100's was introduced less than three years ago. Just write down the serial number that is on the bottom of the espresso maker, and call up Cuisinart - no receipt will be required as the serial number will almost invariably be enough in this case. If you live outside of California, you will have to pay for shipping - probably about $25 all together. But you will be getting a brand-new unit in return.

SOURCE: water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer

the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

SOURCE: The water comes out of both the shower head and

I will have to assume this issue developed and was not present at first use after the initial installation.

There are generally only two reasons for your problem. The first is that the diverter mechanism is simply wearing out and/or broken. The second it that there is a foreign object preventing it from doing its job correctly. Either way the diverter must come out. I have provided a couple of links below that should help get it out.

Once out, put a wadded up towel over the end of the tub spout opening so as to prevent any water from coming out of it. Then, for just a moment, turn your shower on full and adjust your temperature from full cold to full hot. This process should dislodge any foreign matter and send it out the opening the diverter came out of and also will probably get you wet. I usually plug the tub so I can catch what, if anything, comes out. Having a second person holding a bowl over the diverter opening helps reduce the water splash.

Rinse off the diverter and reinstall it. Turn the shower on and see if there is any difference in how much water comes out the spout while in the shower mode. If nothing has changed then the next step is to replace the diverter.

The diverter assembly part number is A603819

True back bar freezing up


Most models have a metal drip collector below the evaporator that has a drain hole in it where the defrosted water goes into before it goes down to the drip trap and then out the drain hose. If the area around the drain hole has cracks, or was punctured during servicing, the drain water can get underneath the tray and run out beside and around the drip tray and never gets into the drain tube and freeze in that location. A careful inspection of this area will reveal any issues.

Hansgrohe ecostat not at full water flow


The most likely cause for a decrease in flow on the Ecostat mixer is debris in the filter screens. Try removing the thermostatic cartridge and cleaning the filter screens on the the cartridge. Doing so will most likely resolve the low flow issue. If you need instructions feel free to contact me at Hansgrohe Tech. 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for Tech and ask for David Scarborough. I'll be happy to provide instructions for the Ecostat mixer.

Excess Hit Water Bill from Solar/electric Hot Water System


10-30-12
Cost calculations for recirculation system vary widely.
These systems cost more, and they cause higher operation cost of water heater.

1) When pump is OFF, then hot water is no longer leaving the tank.
Most recirculation systems have choice of timer for setting specific times of operation, or thermostatic operation that activates pump when sensor detects temperature less than 90 degrees
BUT...

2) Condition of plumbing is suspect here because you are not receiving fully 90 degree hot water from the recirculation system.?.

Bad single-handle faucet cartridge, or bad recirculation check valve, are causes of crossover. Clean recirculation check valve with white vinegar. Replace worn faucet cartridge.
Test for crossover.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

3) There are other suspects, such as water leak.
Drips, broken pipe, bad TP valve.
Turn off all taps and put ear against pipe to listen for running water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#listen

4) High costs: Lifting single-handle faucet in middle will immediately cause cold water to enter tank. Even if no hot arrives at tap, because the cartridge is drawing both hot and cold in equal amounts when handle is lifted in middle.
Today it is more efficient to install dual-handle faucets so tank is not receiving constant dose of cold water when single-handle faucet is not used correctly or tediously.

I do not have a 'drip' but a constant flow,volume


I take it it is a shower only, no tub fill? Is it a single handle or two? Either way, shut off the water, pull off the handle(s), pull out the cartridge or valve, take it to the store and match it up, replace the faulty seals, springs, o-rings, you should be all set. Single handles are a bit more tricky. Hope this helps.

My shower/bath control just turns and the water the does not turn on.It initially was dripping constantly then stopped working completely. (Moen)


sounds like the cartridge is stripped where it goes into the handle. If it is not coming on at all from either the hot or the cold....I would say there is a blockage inside the valve body.

Shower either runs cold or extremely hot


hi ya, if its a triton shower valve & only 2 years old it should have a 5 year guarantee, ring Triton & arrange a service call.
it sounds as though the filters could be blocked & more than likely the thermostat requires replacing as its more than likely scaled up?

You never mentioned where your based UK or abroad?
