The drain **** is either blocked or bend or is making a big bend which is blocking water in it a this making dificult for the drain water to flow. Their is also a smal chance the main drain pipe to be blocked so you can try to put the drain hose inside a bucket to check if the water can run through you drain hose

Water is draing to the bottom catch basin in my Frigidaire Model FRT18B4A refrigerator. Under the 2 bottom drawers there is a catch basin. It takes a week to fill with water. I spounge it out before...


The source of that water is from the automatic defrost cycle in the freezer,the water is supposed to run through a drain in the freezer but that drain is blocked so the water is draining into the refrigerator vents and ultimately to the catch basin instead of draining .
This tip i wrote will help ya to clear that drain in the freezer

What are the recommended settings for grinding espresso on the astoria jada ak? as well as recommended temp and compression?

it depends what coffees you are using, Arabicas can go in higher temperatures and give you very good performance but in same temperature robustas or mixture of both will give you weaker result.
as guide you should use steam from 1 - to 1.3 kg cm2 pressure of pump 7 - 9 kg cm2
the grinder: 1 turn on grinder 2screw inn the plate until you start to hear metal sound. 3 go back for 4 positions 4 grind small amount coffee for testing 5 A ) if it goes to fast and cream is too white than go more fine 5B ) if it goes to slow = drop by drop than you go to larger grinding 6 repeat this with small amounts until you don't find ideal position.
i hope you will be patient in grinding process and you will go step by step.

Hi I do have a problem with my Astoria SAE2 Coffee Machine. One side of the machine working perfectly. On the other one there are 4 buttons and those are flashing red. during this process we can not serve...

Sounds like the flowmeter which sits under the drain tray is not working properly for that side, or the programming is off, or the head is blocked. There is a manual switch for that head when you press it does water flow? If yes then problem is flowmeter.

Dish washer stays on water drain dishwaser comes on with door open


The reason this is happening is the overflow basin has likely filled and activated the overflow float switch. The cause is a little more involved to explain from afar, I`ll try.

The number one cause is a clogged drain hose, check at the point of entry to the household plumbing, usually under the sink.

Other possible causes (among many) include, baking pans like cookie sheets being placed along the right hand side of the lower rack which in turn cover`s over the vent.
An improper install of the dishwasher by the absence of a ``hi-loop`` in the drain line,(refer to the installation guide, you`ll see what I mean) this can manifest in dirty water being allowed to ``backflow`` into the dishwasher creating an overfill scenario.
Drain hoses connected to food disposer`s/garberator`s with-out a check valve...a hi-loop isn`t sufficient in these situation`s, I`ll explain.

In the event a home owner has a full sink of water, and a continuous feed disposer heavily loaded, then turn`s the disposer ``on`` the volume of water being pushed out the garberator into the drain can and often does flow back to the dishwasher ultimately filling the overfill basin, hence activating the overfill float. This will automatically activate the drain pump which will run until the water level in the basin evaporates ( there is no automatic device built in to the basin to drain it, hence it must evaporate or be physically absorbed via a sponge, towel etc.) to an acceptable level to satisfy the float switch and shut off the pump, and the pump will run whether the door is opened or`s a safety device which overrides all other function`s.

Another possible cause is a contaminated/dirty float switch has become ``stuck`` in the overfill position. The float is located in the basin, but the switch is located on the left side of the dishwasher in the switch housing assembly and activated via a linkage. The switch can be accessed by removing the left side panel, which is fairly involved and I`d suggest hiring a pro for such a matter.

Those are a few possibilities. I hope this was helpful without seeming overwhelming, such is the case from afar unfortunately. I believe it`s needed to provide possible solution`s to explain actual causes.

If you`ve found the info I provided here for you at fixya, please take a second and rate it. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance. Thank you.

Good luck.
