My Kenmore Ultrasoft 400 water softener tome light will not stop blinking. How do I reset it

It's been 10 years since I worked at EcoWater, but the Kenmore Ultrasoft 400 shouldn't have changed much. The brine tank light shouldn't blink at all. It should light for 4 minutes and then go out if you leave the door open if I remember correctly. How old is your softener and does it have a light bulb or an LED to light up the brine well? It's most likely a damaged control board that's creating your problem. You'll have to contact Sears for a replacement.

(EcoWater Systems LLC is the OEM [Original Equipment Manufacturer] of water softeners for Sears Kenmore, GE, Whirlpool, Morton Salt, EcoWater Systems dealers and a few others.)

There is a problem with your softner,if softener is equipped with bypass valve ,should say push to bypass,push the bypass valve in,unplug the unit , call the customer service number on the unit. Nothing more you could do.

Rusty water after installing a water filter?

Leave it like it is. Unless you had sand coming through your water. The softener will regenerate and rinse alot of what your filter would plug with down the drain,
