Sounds clogged. with the water line off, look into the top of the valve at the screen and see if it is dirty. It may be a bad valve also. The do go bad from time to time

After hot water demand, burner stays lit, blew up Pex supply line


Thermocouple has 2 ends. One end attaches to gas control valve, other end sits inside the pilot flame.
Flame heats thermocouple, causing tiny electrical current that is detected inside the gas control valve and keeps the gas valve open so water heater can turn on when thermostat calls for heating.
If pilot goes out, then no electric current reaches gas control, and all gas to burner and pilot is shut off.

If pex line burst, that implies very high pressure, caused by closed system with check valve that stops expansion, or possible clog in the water line, or high local water pressure, or clogged factory-installed heat traps.
Put pressure gauge like BTG100 on the drain valve to check pressure, should not exceed 80psi, install pressure reducing valve on cold water line, install expansion tank on cold water line. Remove heat traps and install ordinary pex-lined di-electric nipples from hardware store.

If the water was super hot, then overheating could have caused the pipe explosion.
However the gas control thermostat is ECO protected, and if ECO (energy cut off) trips because of high heat detected inside the tank or combustion chamber, the gas control will trip off and no longer work, gas control needs to be replaced. Some newer electronic gas controls can be reset, but that type heater uses a thermopile instead of thermocouple.
Thermopile is basically a group of thermocouples, that product more electric current that is used to power electronics inside the gas control valve, which issues an error code on the gas control, and some day will send a text message each time out-of-range event occurs.

No Water Coming Out of The Water Dispensor on G E Refrigerator ?


If you are not getting water thru the door dispenser , first thing to check is if you are getting water to the water valve behind the refrigerator . This is the part in the back of the refrig , that the wall water line connects to .
If your ice maker is making normal size cubes , then you ARE getting water TO the water valve .
However , there are 2 coils on the water valve ( G E ) of which 1 is for the ice maker , and , the other , is for the water dispenser .

1 ) Remove the kick plate from the bottom front of the refrig . On some models , the kick plate " snaps " on , and other models , it is held on by a small screw on each side on the top portion of the kick plate .
Once the kick plate is removed , follow the plastic water line from the bottom of the freezer door , about 6 " , to a small coupling . This coupling , has a " ring " on both ends , one of which has to be pushed in as you pull the tubing from the coupler . Once this is accomplished , put a towel under the end of both ends of the tubing , to keep the floor dry .
2 ) Activate the water dispenser arm . If water comes out in a good stream , from the tubing which goes under the refrig , the water line inside the freezer door is frozen . You can either turn the freezer temp warmer for several days for the line to un-thaw or use compressed air ( I have heard using computer cleaner air bottles with the small tube works ) to the water line going up form the bottom of the freezer door to blow out the frozen ice .
Once the ice thaws , G E has a dispenser heater , part # WR49X10173 which comes with installation instructions , to keep this from happening again . If NO water comes out of either hose , then either the water tank inside the bottom of the refrig is frozen ( which would require several days of warmer temperature settings ) OR the refrig could have a bad coil on the water valve , which would require replacing the complete water valve .
I have only come across maybe 1 tank which was frozen , and the rest have been either the line in the door was frozen OR the water valve needed replaced .

Please note....if using compressed air in the door water line , DO NOT USE EXTREME HIGH PRESSURE , as this could burst the line in the door , causing the complete door to have to be replaced . Just the water line inside the door , is not replaceable .

I have an Atwood water heater G6A-7E, heater heats up but no hot water flow after 15 seconds...Flushed system with water and air, put water to it and the hot water flow stops after a few seconds....


First check that any by-pass valves are in proper position. Remember, cold water has to enter in bottom fitting at back of tank, and hot water comes out at top fitting. Thus any valves that may be there, need to be in open position, and any valve between those 2 lines will need to be closed. If all valves are in proper position and working as they should, I would suspect you have a faulty check valve between top (hot) line fitting and tank. One easy way to check that before replacing it, would be to shut incoming water source off, whether running off pump or hose attached outside. Then relieve all pressure in system by opening taps until all pressure is gone. Now, go outside and open pressure relief valve carefully ( in case it's hot ) and make sure pressure is relieved there as well. Now, carefully hold pressure relief valve open while you have someone turn water back on, and see if you get good flow from pressure relief valve. If you get good pressure coming out of there, that tells you your tank is getting full, and you have water coming in as needed, so problem has to be on hot side ( top fitting ) and/or onward from there, which would be check valve fitting at top next to check. Remove the check valve and If you don't have a new check valve to try it, just put a short galvanized 1/2" pipe nipple in there for now if needed and that should do it, just attach your fitting directly to nipple. Before you do this, make sure you have removed all aerators etc on taps that may be plugged and tested pressure that way as well just in case. I have seen all of them plug up at same time before. If you remove them and get good pressure, then problem solved.

My Atwood RV Water heater does not allow water to pass through. It goes in the bottom but does not come out of the top. No clogs are apparent and the plumbing all passes water. I removed the bypass valve...


The fitting at the top of tank where line connects is usually a check valve, Good chance the check valve has blown apart inside and plunger is blocking flow through it. Either get yourself another or even use a short 1/2" NPT plastic or galvanized pipe nipple to replace it and you should be good.

Our ice maker stopped working after our town had a water shortage and shut off supply for a period of time.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

When there is a long term water outtage all kinds of things can be introduced into your water system. Most likely there is debris in your water supply line or water valve assy on your refrigerator.

1. Turn off the water supply to your refigerator.
2. Remove the water supply line
3. Turn on the water and purge the water line. ( If there is not water coming through the line at this point the water shut off valve at the supply connection is probably clogged. ) Then reconnect the line and turn on the water.

4. After purging the supply line unplug the refrigerator
a. Make a test cord for the water valve solenoid by using an old extension cord and cutting off the end and installing female termials available at any applaince parts source or some hardware supply sources.
b. Remove the fiberboard rear cover of the unit and gain access to the water valve
c. Disconnect the 2 terminals of the ice maker water valve solenoid and connect your test cord.
d. Remove the plastic line that goes to the icemaker at the top connection by pulling down and place in a bucket.
e. Plug the test cord into the wall outlet. Water should flow into the bucket.
f. Unplug the water valve solenoid test cord. Water MUST stop.

If you do not get water flow at this point your water valve is clogged. You can either try to reverse flow with water and power to unclog it or... use LP air at a distance pointing into the top plastic line with the test cord connected to the wall outlet. If it does not clear then your only option is to replace the water valve.

g. Remove the test cord and reconnect unit wires to the water valve solenoid.

Here is a link on how to cycle the ice maker:

Just note that there is only 7.5 seconds that water is supplied when the sweep fingers are near vertical.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Vacuum line schematic 1987 toyota corolla le front wheel drive


It is similar to my rear wheel drive two door.

The main vacuum line from a vacuum source on the intake goes to the multi-hose valve on the top and the distributor vacuum advance.This multi-valve switching valve is the main connection to the other vacuum hoses on mine. Two lines come in from a vacuum source and thre go out to three components according to tempature. On mine the middle one off to side 1)goes to choke opener and switching vacumm valves mounted on the fenders the other middle one 2)second from top goes to another choke opener and EGR Valve and EGRModulator. The bottom hose connection is on when cold 3)and goes to a part on the carburator to help it run better when warming up a AAP valve.

There is a check valve diaprham thing inline to the EGR vlave on the second line from top.

I have another vacuum line on the drivers side of the carburator that has a check vlave inline but larger it goes to the throttle linkage to help slow the closing of the trottle on rapid deceleration.126c338.jpg14b3a33.jpgf95de67.jpg9f023f4.jpga890bd7.jpg5531e92.jpg
