To attempt to solve the over filling, clean the probes in the back right corner. Use a green scrubby pad.

There is also two probes under the front screen. Clean them too.

As far as the booster not working, there could be many reasons. One of the few things that you can attempt is resetting the hi-limit. Turn off the breaker. Remove the bottom panel. Look to the right side. Look for a black mushroom platic piece with a little button in the middle. It will click if it was tripped.

Some booster use a disc type of hi-limit. These type are a little stainless and plastic barrel. There is a red button between two electrical connectors. It will click also.

Good luck - Mike

The water on my Kenmoore fridge is not working


Pull the machine out and remove the lower back cover. Locate the water valve. With the water turned on and connected remove the 5/16" water line (the bigger one) and then have someone else press the water in the door. If the cylinoid is operating correctly it should spray water out. If it is not operating properly it should at least hum and vibrate. If that does not occur your problem lies elsewhere. As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve.

Hobart sr24h dishwasher won't get up to temp.


the water level is low (should cover the bottom of the tank about a 1/4")and the pump is starving - therefor probably not washing very well.

three things to check

1. check braided fill hose for kinks (you will have to pull the machine out if under a counter). run the machine while pulled out if possible to ensure its not kinking when you push it in.

2. pressure reducing valve-prv (if installed) on the incomming water line before the braided hose (probably under a sink). turn the screw on top clockwise to increse pressure.
TURN THE BREAKER OFF TO DO THE FOLLOWING!!
3. flow regulator (if installed) - installed under the bottom pannel at the end of the braided fill hose (about 2" long and silver). turn off water. you can simply remove it, drill out the centre or just remove the rubber peice inside.

inrease the temp by adjusting the thermostat on the right side under the bottom pannel in front of the booster.(dail is hard to see and breaker must be turned off)

remember - the machine must be turned on for several minuets to truly get up to temp.

Rinse not hot enough


145 degree is just your hot water temp and that your dishwasher hot water booster is not working assuming that this machine has worked in the past to produce final rinse water above 180 degrees. Remove the bottom panel and to the right you will see the booster tank, look for a nickel size component with a small red button on it. Try pushing on it to reset it. If that does not work, check for voltage at your heating element on your booster tank. (the thicker wires) If voltage is present then your heating elements need replacing.

Water temp is reading 180 while driving is that okay? is that normal


Hi.Yes,normal operating tenpeture for these vehicles is anythere between 180 an 205. At about 205 degree,the ECM turns on the coolant fans.The only time the coolant fans are on at all times is when the a/c is on.As far as the funny smell,it could be the heatercore starting to leak.If it smells like coolant,it will be the heater core.I suggest you take it to your local dealership.This repair will be covered under the factory warrenty.

Not reaching temp


On the machine that we have, there are two [2]push button switches in line for the heater tank. One is on the front of the tank and the other is around the right side. I have always called them clicks-on's but.. they are red in color and need to be rested if ever they get to hot. Be sure to relise that they did infact pop for some resone. Did the tank for some resone run dry?
