Sometimes coffee grounds get into the intake if you don't use the intake filter. Unplug, set the pot aside and then turn the coffe maker upside down in a sink with a good hose sprayer. Direct the water up into the intake side of the coffe maker with the filter out.

Then refill and see if water will flow through. If it works, run vinegar or a pot of water with a tablespoon of dissolved baking soda (dissolve in pot first or it will clog the coffee maker).

It worked for me.

No cold

dear Ali you have a pretty vauge question but i will start with an assumption that you have no cold water going into the tub when machine calls for it. start at the wall where the water supply comes out of the fausct -if it comes out there and it seems like the pressure is as strong as the hot side check the hoses for blockage. lastly make sure there are no clogged screens in line or on the back of the machine. generally the water control valves fail and will not let the water pass. replace that and you should be golden Cheers Denny

My freezer is collecting water in the bottom just below coils how do i repair

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS6R4EQ4 is collecting water in the bottom of the freezer, below the coils. I also see that you think the drain is clogged. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the water is collecting. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Amana furnace model amv9 has water dripping from the exhaust outlet. the exhaust doesnt seem to be clogged and the overflow for water to run into doesnt seem to be clogged. water is makign its way int

You did not say if you have a dehumidifier or air conditioner installed on this unit. If those are not installed on it then the only place moisture could be coming from is down the exhaust connection for the flue. If one or both of those items are installed then the issue is the drain trays might have debris built up that you cannot see.

My Whirlpool Gold Side by Side (counter depth) [model# GC3PHEXNS00] refrigerator stopped making ice. Water dispenser is still working, doesn't seem to be an obstruction in the line. What do I do?

Can be clogged water passing line or faulty water valve.But if you have already checked the water passing line and it seems clear, then its most probably the water valve.---------

The ice maker not working: ---

Its the problem of water inlet valve. It's a dual valve. This valve has two tubes in it. One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber. The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working. The valve is got stuck in one position

IRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum dirt not going into the fliter basket

You can try rinsing the tank very thoroughly with warm water. Be very sure that you rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank (one round, two oval, one curved like Scooba's filter) very thoroughly, because all the dirt and dirty water moves through those openings and can clog things up.
