The eductor assembly is plugged and the unit is not drawing brine. The eductor assembly looks like a space capsule it is on the left side of the valve. It needs to be taken apart and cleaned.
Here is the link for the manual.

Kenmore Water Softeners Model 625388270 Serial 12756 - Water above the salt level. I have cleaned the venture nozzle. Did not help


Hello,
On this model, the problem is usually the rotor and rotor seal. When they wear, they don't let the softener create a vacuum to pull the brine water from the tank. This is a fairly complex repair. I don't have a service manual for you. The parts are available from Sears. I know this is not much help, but I've worked on hundreds of these and this is the problem 98% of the time.

I have a 606 reliance water heater the pilot will lite but when time to turn knob to on it goes off pls help i cant afford a new water heater right now!!!


Do you know what and where the thermocouple is ? Small probe sitting above pilot flame normally. It should be checked, and should not be expensive to replace. If not familiar with all this, get back to me and I'll explain more thoroughly. Is this a repair your going to try yourself, or just want advice before calling repairman?

I don't have a problem, just a question. I recently purchased a home with a GE Smartwater softening system installed Model GXSF23Z01. What do I need to do to maintain this system. Does it require salt?...


Check the time of day, and make sure it's accuate. Reset if necessary. Add salt if it's low. It's always best to let the salt level run low (about 1-2") so it doesn't mush. Only add 80-100 lbs at a time for best results. This particular softener doesn't keep a water level in the tank, so you won't see any water in the salt area. If there is standing water in the salt area, that could mean it's not working the way it should. Here is a link to the owners manual. It's in PDF format

Our water softener has stopped working. The salt has turned into one big block. What do I do? Can this be fixed? How?


You are going to have to clean the salt block out of the tank. You can try using the end of a broom handle to try breaking it up. Be careful not to go to bottom of tank. Try pouring a couple gallons of hot water over salt bridge if that does not work and retry. Avoid using pellet salt it causes problems like this. If there is currently water at the bottom of salt tank then system is not working and needs repair.
Hope this helps,

I just had a mouse surface in my holding tank how do I clean that out? do I add bleach and cycle the water softener?


The mouse must have been in one of your product bags...depending on the deterioration of the carcus; you may have already injested some of the decomposing material.
1. Turn off the water supply and remove the top cover
2. Make sure you have rubber glvoes. Drain the holding tank and remove and dispose of the remaining salt tablets/product left in the tank.
3. Yes, clean the tank with a disinfectant (bleach) and rinse thoughly. Be sure to rinse the tank...you don't want high levels of bleach in your supply lines.
4. Fill with new/clean softner tablets and return unit to service.

The water is not clear any more we have white residue in the kettle. We did change the filter and emptied the tank 3 times before insulting the new filters.


I don't believe that any filtration system is capable of removing dissolved calcium from water and that is what causes the white deposits. Water softeners will, but I don't like the idea of dissolved salts in our tap water.

Water is coming out of the drain valve shroud / drain valve. How can i stop this? Please help! Many thx!


Do you drain your heater regularly?

I think the water may have eaten or partially eaten the valve stem.

If I were faced with this problem, I believe I would secure the power, take a shower (to take advantage of the hot water you paid to heat - and to get cold water into the tank) Drain the tank - remove the stem replace the washer. If it looks strange ... like the washer screw was eaten, you can replace that valve.

Good luck with your project.

(PS you should clear sediment from the tank semi-annually or more)

My salt storage tank has water up over the salt approximately 12 inches deep. Is there something I need to do to fix this?


Not necessarily.....monitor the level....if continues to rise,then an adjustment may be required.....many salt tanks have water higher than the salt level at different levels as a normal condition.

Try this link. http://www.inyopools.com/HowToPage/how-to-know-when-a-salt-cell-is-bad.aspx?CommentPage=1

step 2 may be a clue that all that needs to be done (to turn out the light) is to depress the diagnostic button for about 3 seconds. Of course, some inspection or cleaning might still need to be done to preserve its life.

Thank you for your service. I haven't seen the name Blankenship since I left home in 58 to join the Navy.
