SOURCE: No instruction manual

1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.

The refill/reset light comes on after the water level drops, Did you add water?

If so you might need to clean it twice.

Hope this helps, Matt

Water boiling in the overflow reservoir

Considering that the vehicle was never intended to reach the extremely high mileage it has, it is possible that pressure loss from the one of the cylinder chambers is occurring and leaking into a coolant channel, causing air bubbles to surface at the coolant reservoir. In this case, it may be a bad head gasket or a cracked head. Have you noticed a significant decrease in engine power of late? Is there any oil sheen appearing at the top of the coolant in the reservoir?

Whats causes coolant to stay in reservoir bottle and not return to coolant lines?

I would be looking at cracks in the hose to the reservoir to the radiator . Look for loose fittings. Check that if the hose is in the top of the reservoir in the filler cap that the pick up line is to the bottom of the bottle and not cracked . What you have is air getting into the line when the vacuum from a cooling engine starts to work and that prevents water being sucked back

Check for cracks in the system. It sounds like you have too much air in it. If you are driving, does the temperature gage fluctuate? The cap is designed not to leak, but hot compressed air will blow by it. When it does, it easily confused as coolant "purging" out of the system, but really it is steam and air. By removing the thermostat, you are fully opening the coolant cycle and the water is free to circulate. Also, with the thermostat removed, the system can't build up enough pressure because it is open to the collector bottle, which in turn is open to the atmosphere. The system is designed to work under pressure so you should keep the thermostat in. That said, try to purge the system. Remove the thermostat, plug the overflow tubes, and pull a low vacuum on the reservoir (collector bottle). You want to make sure the reservoir is about half full. My personal experience is using about 5 to 6 inches of vacuum pressure for about 30 minutes. If there's lots of air, you will see bubbles in the reservoir. And as long as you have enough coolant in it, when you remove the vacuum, it will not draw air into the system, so make sure there's enough coolant in the reservoir. I am not sure about this truck, but some vehicles actually have a purge valve on the main coolant line close to the thermostat, and usually at the highest point in the system. It looks like a Schrader valve. So, if you have this, let the car cool down, put some rags around the purge valve, remove the valve cap and purge away (like letting air out of a tire). You'll have to do this a few time after driving to completely vent the system. Finally, if you do overheat again and start spewing coolant, before the car has a chance to cool down, fill the reservoir with coolant at least up to the hot level mark. That way, when the engine (and coolant) cools down, it will draw the fluid into the radiator. Otherwise, you just end up pulling more air into the system making the problem worse. Hope this helps.

My engine is overheating, and when i lift the hood it appears that the coolant in my coolant reservoir is boiling/bubbling....there doesnt seem to be a leak except from the reservoir itself, the reservoir...

With the engine cool open radiator cap. If the level is low you are losing coolant. Go for a 30/40 dollars, radiator compression test. Might be a bad radiator cap seal, water pump leak cylinder head gasket.
If the coolant level is in top, then there are many other reason.

GE Water Cooler Reservoir overflows.

There should be no crack or pin hole in your water bottle.
Water bottle should be air-tight to make proper pressure inside bottle.
Whenever lose pressure, water overflow with no bubble.
Just replace water bottle with no crack or pin hole.
Good luck.

I have oil in my coolant overflow tank. Is this a head gasket problem. No water in the engine oil...

Here is the way to find out pull your spark plug put out and bring each cylinder tdc and put 50 psi air in that cylinder remove radiator cap and check for bubbles do this to all cylinders,if no bubbles I would be checking to see if that engine has a oil cooler that could leak oil into your coolant,some mercededs had oil cooler,

Cooling does not work either

Get in there with a vacuum and clean up the condenser coils then check the compressor relay. If all those are fine bypass the cold control just long enough to see if the water cooler works. Do not leave it bypassed or damage to the reservoir could occur.

I had a similar problem. My PUR 200 water cooler was also leaking from back. The reservoir had crack in it. Since replacement part is not available. I used Super Glue and it is working fine now.
