How to replace the water level sensor in an Alen

How do I replace the water level sensor in an Alen C360 portable A/C?

I have removed the sides and front panel of the unit. I assume the water tank is at the bottom of the unit but it has several copper pipes going into it so does not look removable. I have a new sensor unit but can't see how to open the water tank in order to replace the sensor.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

PS: The "Water Full" light is always on yet the pump seems to have pumped all the water out of the tank.

P2 code is on Alen AC portable unit. Have emptied tank, unplugged, reset and still have P2 code on.


I am not completely familiar with these units but I believe they use a float to determine condensate levels. This float may be stuck in the raised position.

Danby portable dishwasher ddw1899wp starts taking in water and then stops working with pre-rinse light blinking. Please help me on this issue. Any answer would be much appreciated.


If the water level sensor does not electrically shut off when the level needed is reached, the pre-rinse cycle will error out thinking that the level has not been reached. That sensor is a float device and probably needs to be replaced...

My c360 model hasn't been cooling the room like it used to. I don't know what the problem is.


First thing to check is a dirty filter. Maybe a dirty coil behind the filter. Do you have good air flow?

Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft Washer water won't stop filing, cycle doesn't start...


most likely cause
kenmore pressure sensors work off a tube that runs from the bottom of the drum to the sensor, either the tube has come off the sensor body inside the control panel
  • open control panel reattach tube, wrap wiretie or twisttie to keep in plpace
or less likely cause
kenmore level sensors fail
there is a spring inside that stretches over time and mis reads, it is adjustable
  • control panel is still open from previous check
  • remove level selector from control panel, usually an unlock latch on the right side, rotate 45deg counter clockwise withdraw.
  • there is a 1/8 inch bolt head, turn right raise water level, turl left lower water level

Kenmore 80 washing machine -water sensor not working


Yes,
Kenmore is uniformly easy to work on, everything comes off from the front.
There are two 80 models,
on the most common, newer model, the edge trims on the console pop off, there is a phillips screw in each corner, remove the screw, slide the console forward, lift up and flip over.
on the older one the console is released by sliding a putty knife or other blunt blade under the corners of the console to uncatch a clip, lift up flip over
  • ensure air tube is attached (water level sensor operates off air tube from bottom of drum to control body, (bottom is not loose or there is water all over the floor))
  • Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing (usually makes water level lower)
  • ensure wires are connected to control body.
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test
  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed - dont shock yourself on the cable connectors
  6. test, adjust, test adjust. (water level switch may need to be flicked hi-med & back to test adjustment
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
The water level switch body contains a small spring that is not really up to the job and stretches over years,
do this repair, on call, no parts, takes 15 minutes,, 3-4 times a month

Waher wont stop filling


If you had the unit apart, It is possible as well as Lumpy816 correct answers, for a surge in the pressure sensing line to stretch the tiny spring inside the level sensing body.
if replacing the hose does not rectify the problem
Before replacing the pressure switch there are more tests of function
Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing(usually makes water level lower so doubt this is the fault)
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test whether just the adjustment is required,

  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed
  6. test, adjust, test adjust.
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
