Noisy water lines : When any water line is turned on, you can hear the water running through the lines anywhere in the house. This is a recent problem that started after we came back from vacation and turned the water back on, after shutting it off for the vacation.

This is a commom proplem and not always easy to figure out. It could just be excess air in the lines or even a kinked line will make the pipe sing. Since your say that know matter where you run the water I would start looking for a kinked pipe or even a lose or missing pipe hanger in the main line.

What would cause a gurgling sound at the kitchen sink when no water is running anywhere in the house?


the waste disposal system for your house was installed by a person who was not competent to do the job and didn't make allowances for sufficient air pipes in the system or placed them on the wrong side of the traps
I would have an engineer inspect the installation to pin point the problem so that what you have doesn't occur and if it is installed contrary to plan and engineering requirements seek legal redress from the plumber that did the job

HI I have a problem with tech CS5121 5.8 GHz when someone calls me i pick up the phone i hear a noisy voice while im talking with the person at the same time he doesn't hear that voice, so it actually...


Most likely this is just "bleed" over interferance from another cordless phone on the same frequency and/or channel. For starters I recommend changing whichever you can in respect to these to see if this fixes the issue. You might have to change them a few times to find a good setting without the issue.

This could be a case of lines being crossed anywhere from the wiring at your phone all the way to the phone company. If you live in an apartment environment it is possible for it to be crossed with a neighbors line. Although less likely, it could even be crossed wires from different houses. This could also involve the phone companies wiring anywhere down to their main connections.

Hope this helps...

Irrigation system problem


How big is your pump? How much HP rating? It could be a case of blocked water line. Just check your pipe lines and the gate valve for blockage. Just your e-mail

Dishwasher making loud noise during wash cycle


It's noisy If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve. 

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).


  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.


Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. 

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.
thanks and accept the solution accordingly

Water heater problem (no leak on floor)


shut off the power to the hot water heater wait 5 to 15 min. If the noise stops it is the water heater eating up electricity. Turn it back on if noise starts again feel about 5 or so feet down the hot water line. If this line is hot you have a leak beyond the hot water heater. If you still hear it when the power is off to the water heater. next turn the water off on the cold water line at the water heater with the power off also Look at the water meter and see if the hand or wheel on the meter is moving and it should no be. Also think if the breaker to the hot water is off the electric meter should practically stop if no refrig oe anything else on. Have someone watch the electric meter and switch 1 breaker at a time leaving the one you just shut off in the off position until you cut them all off. Should the meter still be moving you have a main service cable shorting somewhere call the power company to advise you further if this is the problem.. Should just cutting the circuit breaker for the hot water heater stop the noise and down the hot water line is not hot then you are probably wasting power due to a thermostat or element inside the hot water heater.. Thank you j

disconnect the power wires from the valve, if it still fills with water, I would say you have a stuck valve. just because its new, doesnt mean its going to work.

Fridge making "knocking" noise


Remove the light shield and there should be screws under it. Remove the air tower in the back, it snaps in and there is 2 screws behind that as well to remove the damper housing that sits behind the light. Also not sure what your model is but some models have 2 air ducts that run up each side, they come out after the light shield is removed by sliding foward and then pulling down. After the screws are removed in the upper plate the light assy will snap out and there is 2 quick disconnects on the wires.

The first question you need to ask yourself is, "is the drain pump running?" If you can hear the drain pump running when it tries to drain, then more than likely you have a clogged drain pump, or drain line. Here's how you can determine which one: You can check the drain line by seeing if it collapses when the pump starts to run. If it does, then you know you have a clogged line somewhere BEFORE the pump. This usually means an article of clothing has gotten between the wash basket and outer tub and is stuck in the line. If the line is full of water and doesn't seem to be going anywhere, hook up a wet/dry shop vac to the drain hose in the rear of the machine to see if you can pull water from the tub, through lines, and through the pump. If you can't, you know you probably have a clogged pump, or drain line AFTER the pump. If the drain pump does not come on, you may have a pump failure. In either case, you need to drain the water from the tub. A wet/dry shop vac does a great job at pulling water from the tub, so you don't have to bail. Let me know if this helps.

Water stopped coming out of the dispenser


Your filter would have to be VERY dirty and fully plugged up for that to happen along with no ice maker production too. Did you happen to move the frige recently where the line in the back is kinked closed? Any recent plumbing work could have put debris in the line and plugged the screen on the solenoid valve. Simplest test is to pull the frige out and see if you have water from the wall valve. If you disconnect the line at the frige and turn the wall valve back on you should have water flow of course (clean without debris). It may be that the line is frozen up also, that means leaving the unit off for a day to see if the line will defrost. If the solenoid valve is working you would hear the loud "click" of the valve.
