Your flush valve (flapper) is leaking. Some of these rubber flappers snap on to posts. Others, slide down the overflow tube. Others are the plunger type that lift straight up and down (some of these have a gasket on the bottom that go bad.) In any case be sure flapper closes properly. Make sure the chain to the handle isn't so long as to get between valve and seat holding flapper open. If all else fails buy a fluidmasgter flush fixer repair kit and follow directions. I had a similar problem one winter and wasted about 200.00 on water.,

2018 Cruiser RV funfinder plumbing - what are the 3 drains under the camper?


On my rv they are low point drains for emptying the lines before winterization. Blue is cold water and red is hot water. There should be valves somewhere near them. For normal operation the valves should be closed. Sounds like one is partially open or leaking.

How much water can leak from a toilet inlet valve


Make sure the flapper seals properly. If not the tank empties out into the bowl slowly, the the refill valve allows more water into tank. Then it leaks out and cycle is repeated If the refill valve does not close properly the tank will continue to fill - you will always hear it - and the excess goes down the overflow and is wasted. Unless you have money to burn you should not contact a plumber. The replacement of these parts is a simple operation and you can get these parts at any home depot store.

Why does my water container fill up even though my machine is plumbed in?


This looks like a fault. The plastic tank has two reed switches that measure 'tank empty' and 'tank half full'. When the tank is empty the inlet solenoids (there are 2 for safety) open and water enters the tank but not so much to fill the tank to the half way level. In normal operation the level water in the tank will drop and then more water is allowed in. In your case it appears the 'half full' reed switch is being activated because the solenoids are not closing off properly and water is leaking in and filling the tank. If you do not empty it then eventually it will fill and leak into the leak. The problem can be caused by either low water pressure (below 145 psi) or sticky solenoid. If is the solenoid then the Miele solution will be to replace both solenoids. Alternately you may be able to remove, take apart and clean. Also check that you have a mesh filter at connection to tap. Also you can temporarily fix the problem by turning off the water at the tap and re-programming machine to 'turn off' the plumed water line. regards

Try holding the handle down until the tank empties completely. If the tank leaks into the bowl during or after refill, the flapper is defective and not sealing correctly.

Compressor squeaks as pressure begins to build. Not from belt. Does not squeak when no pressure in tank.


Air leaking back from tank check valve or leaking reed valves can make a squeaking or vibrating noise. With pressure in tank remove fitting at the tank check valve and test for leak with soapy water. If leaking, replace with generic valve. If no leak, reinstall fitting and let all the air out of the tank. With empty tank and air filter removed, start compressor and feel strength of suction at intake. When you hear the squeak retest strength of suction at intake and compare. If reed valves are leaking, you will feel less suction as tank pressure increases, and in severe leaking valves, you will actually feel air blowing out of intake. Repair/replace reeds and /or leaking gaskets in head of compressor. Good luck

Blue light blinking, tank full, water not heating up

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

Starter valve dont close hatachi ec119sa (air compressor)


The start valve gives your motor a running start before the motor begins to load as the pressure increases from an empty tank. The motor strain is more profound when there is pressure in the tank. If you plug the valve, the motor will instantly encounter a heavy load because it has to force air into a partially filled tank. This extra load without the valve will shorten the life of the capacitors and motor windings. There could be two problems with your unit that can revealed by test. What actually closes the valve is a certain volume of air produced by the compressor. If the compressor is not pumping to full efficiency or there are leaks in the discharge hose the valve will not close. Or the valve is faulty. With an empty tank, plug the valve and run compressor and test airline for leaks with soapy water. If no leaks, empty tank of air and restart compressor and take note of the amount of time it takes to fill the tanks to shut off. If it takes an unusually long time to fill, then the compressor probably has valve problems causing low air volume. If the compressor fills to shut off in a short time frame as compared to a similar model then replace the valve. Leaking valves in the head will also cause the pump and discharge tube to run very hot. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck with your repair.

2001 VW Passat leakin water


I would highly suggest a pressure test to really pin point this leak. I can tell from diagram that the coolant expansion tank line goes right thru that area. I would also caution you to the obvious with this vehicle- everything is a tight fit and coolant leaking from the t-stat housing and or water pump could look similiar. I strongly suggest a pressure test to keep from throwing good money away.
