Yes I agree with Master_tech Be sure the shipping retainer was removed if its a new unit, if its an old unit clean it and put an algae tablet in it.

Pump does not shut off and timer does not stop after the 20 minutes.


What is on?
If equipped with a Small (Laing or Grundfos branded) circulation pump, these are normally Constant Duty pumps running 24-7
If not and it is your Low Speed running, then your switching mechanism has failed. This is normally the symptom of a spa that has a Mechanical Timer. Does your spa have one? If so, it may have failed, replacement should take care of it.
If electronic, then a relay has fused together on the PCB, and the only proper repair is replacement of that Board.
Now... If you are referring to HIGH Speed (you were not very specific) then this is a problem! A serious problem that needs correction ASAP!
Why?
Because a pump that runs constantly on high speed will STILL HEAT the water long after the heater turned off! Until it boils!
That is if the high limits have failed as well, don't think it doesn't happen, it does!
A very potentially Dangerous situation.
Kinetic energy or friction of water moving through the plumbing occurs! There is a restriction of the path/flow of water through the spas complete plumbing system, but the pump pushes it still no matter what, over and over. This is energy transferred to the water.
Good Luck.

I have a hot water boiler with 3 zone valves and 2 circulation pumps. I see no relays wired to pumps. Pumps run constantly


Sounds like a lot of unknowns from your article. Here are some basic checks

- if they are the honeywell zone valves and you try to open them and get resistance than 9/10 times the t-stat is not calling for heat and the valve should be closed
-if stat is calling and wants heat zone valve lever should be free of resistance when moving it
- 15-20 psi is a little high but could be normal based on the size of your place and the temperature you are reading these pressures at
-with the pumps always running seems to me that the pumps are hard wired to a constant electrical source, if you want optimal control install a taco zone controller

The Symbols should be there whenever the boiler is in use, it confirms the pump is running and the gas valve is open...i.e firing.
the pump overrun may come on after a firing to dissipate excess heat and is what it says, i.e the pump continues to run to keep the hot water moving to prevent the boiler from getting noisey. Sometimes you may see a radiator symbol which means the boiler is doing a 'heating' cycle as against hot water.

When I start any program on my Miele Novotronic W820, the machine fills with water and drum starts to turn but after a short time the main wash light flashes on and off. I've tried clearing the program,...


you may find that the water pump is not operating properly as the first fill of water is normally pumpt out first before the wash fill is started unplug the machine and take the back panel off and locate the water pump and check if you can move the cooling fan at the rear of the pump freely if not the take the water outlet pipe off and remove whatever is stopping the rotation of the pump replace all parts and run the machine to see if the fault has been found and cleared eric

Juguar over heats water hose are soft and the resavior spills out the over-flow check engine light comes on


if your hoses are soft your problem may be that the bottom radiator hose is flattening when the engine is at normal running temp. & not letting enough water through,to check this get the engine up to normal running temp. & watch the bottom hose while you rev the engine to see if it flattens....hope this helps.....cheers

Saniplus draining in pulses


When you flush the toilet, the Saniplus will turn on and off once or twice, this is normal. If it turns on 3 times or more then could be a problem with venting or the discharge pipe installation may not be properly installed. But when you run the sink or shower it will turn on and off constantly, this is normal. The Saniplus pumps out the water as it comes in.

The motor on my Miele washing machine is running constantly even when not set on a programme. The water seems to empty out as soon as it comes in. I Have to release the Stop /Start button to stop motor.


what motor do you mean the motor that spins the drum or the pump motor if its the pump motor i would check the programmer as it tells the pump when to run, on a rinse water evacuate cycle it would seem that you are stuck in that mode call a loacl engineer
