    I had the same problem following a move and 1 month storage. it worked perfectly prior to the move. water flows out through the casing and no steam goes through either the coffee part or the steam part. 


    I took the top off and looked inside and can't see any corrosion around the boiler part (sorry i don't know the proper names for the parts!). is this seal actually inside the boiler part? it's not obvious to me how i would take that apart. 


    gxmason - how did you ever resolve the problem?

Sounds like the machine was exposed to freezing temperatures?

If so, you probably cracked the boiler and the boiler section needs to be replaced.

    Sorry didn't the model.
    If it's leaking from the group head the internal boiler seal will have perished.
    To confirm this remove the top cabinet screws,have a quick look, it will be all white with corrosion.
    It's a fairly involved job so if your not sure take it to a service agent.
    Good luck

Can not remember how to pair my nokia bh208 headst


Try this:

Pair the headset
1. Ensure that your phone is switched on and the headset is
switched off.
2. Press and hold the power key until the green indicator light
starts to flash quickly.
3. Activate the Bluetooth feature on the phone, and set the phone
to search for Bluetooth devices.
4. Select the headset from the list of found devices.
5. Enter the passcode 0000 to pair and connect the headset to your phone. In some phones you may need to make the connection separately after pairing.

You only need to pair the headset with your phone once.
If the pairing is successful, the headset beeps and appears in the
phone menu where you can view the currently paired Bluetooth
devices. The headset is now ready to use.

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray


Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.
