Davey XJ70 pumps bore water but flow dwindles when garden hose attached thus requiring pump to be turned off to stop burn out. Marc

possible it is a jet pump that has a return hose back to the foot valve to assist the pump to lift the bore water higher to work the pump
if that is the case ,when you turn on the tap on the pressure to the lift jet is reduced and so the pump cannot lift the water from the bore --it runs out of water
the fix here is to restrict the flow out of the tap so that jet pressure is maintained--- don't turn the tap on more than 1 turn
the reason is the lift height is too great ,indicating that the bore water level is lower than it normally is

99 f 350 vacume pump has no power to it checked

The vaccum pump should only work when put in 4 wheel drive.If the truck is running rough the vaccum pump isnt it.Suspect fuel filter, water in fuel, bad injector harness under valve covers.That truck will run bad also if the oil hasnt been changed periodically because the ipr valve cannot work right due to dirty oil and gives icp sensor a bad signal.That truck has the 7.3L , very good engine.

Water keeps flowing back into the macerator

There should be a check valve installed in the discharge elbow, check if the check valve is installed or it might just be stuck open so when waste water is pumped out, it slowly drains back into the unit creating water pressure that is making it kick on and off.

Maytag dishwasher model DWU9906BAX, 15 years old, in the past 6 months we have been finding dirty water in the bottom between uses. We have made sure the 'drain' cycle emptys the bottom after...

This is truly a drain pump fault as it fails to pump out the dirt and water. In a period of time the drain can get choked and so it will not drain out efficiently. so it is best to remove the pump and clean up the drain section which must solve this issue. keep the washer tilted to drain properly.

When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Gaggia Titanium. Fault suggests ventilation required. Followed manual instructions, nothing happens. Tried rinsing, nothing happens. Tried hot water nothing happens? Have taken out and cleaned all pbvious...

Do you hear the pump working but no water flows?

You should select hot water (the third button from the right) and the display should say "hot water" at the same time it is saying VENTILATE --- open the steam valve all the way and the pump should start and you should see water from the steam wand.

If you don't hear the pump at all, then that is a different problem.

If you do hear the pump but still don't get any water with the steam valve open, then you need to prime the pump by using a turkey baster or the accordian pump that came with the Titanium to pump water into the valve where water from the tank goes. Remove the tank and use the turkey baster to pump water into that valve while the pump is running and the steam valve is open all the way with HOT WATER selected. the second water starts to come out the steam valve you want to stop the pump (turn the power off or turn the steam knob shut) and put the water tank back on and make sure there is plenty of water in the tank - then start the pump again by opening the steam valve all the way and let it pump water out the steam wand for a few minutes.

The water for drinking has dwindled to almost nothing. I have checked the valve in back of the refrigerator. It is ok. I have checked the water supply to the refrigerator. It is ok. Maybe something is...

You should also have a water filter in the refrigerator. They typically are located in the back of the refrigerator compartment on the top right corner, or behind the bottom grill in the front. Possibly some debris got in there and clogged the filter. I would check that first and let me know if that solves your problem.

Pump is running but no water is being drawn from the reservoir

I haven't had this happen where nothing is being dispensed, but if you have small portions being dispensed or the pump is noisy, I tried 2 things that work for me:
1) remove the reservoir and over your kitchen sink, with water still inside the reservoir, use your pinky finger, small chopstick, etc, and gently push the inlet valve a few times from underneath to let water out. After about 2-3 months, our unit seems to stick (rubber seal that closes),
2) put some vinegar into the reservoir with some water and run the unit about 3-4 times on largest cup setting. Clean out the reservoir, replenish with fresh water and run the unit another 6 times. Believe me, you need to flush the vinegar out well, otherwise any residue in your coffee will not only taste bad, it will curdle your milk/cream. I've had my B70 Platinum for 15 months making about 8 cups everyday, Hope this helps..:D

My dishwasher was run without water in it. did i break it?

By the way, was it still running when you put it off. Anyway, If it was for a short period of a few minutes, 2 to 3 minutes, no damage done. For a longer period, you could have damage the pump. Anyway, try it again, but with water, check pump water leak. If it does, put it off. Have the pump mechanical seal replaced, and continue the test. If there's no water pump in it, just continue the test. You may still have it in good working condition.

Ventilate shows, nothing works

There is an air lock in the hydraulic line of the machine, thats why it is calling for ventilate, if hot water valve is open and it is still calling for ventilate, then it is possible that the valve is blocked, it might be at top of the wand or at the tap rod assembly.

Ice and water stopped working

Check the water valve on the back of the unit. Remove the hoses from the refrigerator side of the valve and see if water is coming from the wall through the valve itself. If it doesn't come through the valve, you'll know it's bad.
