Bad water valve?

I'm not sure what a bad water valve is or where I would look. It worked for 3 or 4 days before crapping out.

    Will it be obvious if the valve is bad? Sorry this is all new to me. I'm not very good with things like this (obviously). Thanks!

I have a 1997 toyota tacoma that the heater works sometimes but not other times?


heater, totally dead.

1: blower working and blowing cold air ,

2: engine holds 180F or more all the time, HOLDS !! i use an IR pyro gun to do that as dash gauges suck.

3: heat lever bad, slipping or stuck (look)

4: some cars have no water valve, so use damper , it can stick closed.



if engine coolant was hot at heater failure we can work this easy.

yes< then is both heater hoses hot touch , fan on, engine hot.

see them as they enter fire wall, on both sides.?

you can in fact feel them on all cars.

ever do a real RAD cooling system flush , if not, BINGO, full of crap inside.

How do I check the anode on my bock 32E water heater? I have flushed the tank several times but the water is still brown and now the release valve drains the whole tank every few days.


1) Anode rod is located on top of water heater.
It is 1-1/6" hex head.
It might be under a plastic plug, or you might have to take off metal top of tank.
Sometimes you cannot remove anode rod because it is rusted too badly.
I have used impact wrench sometimes and been unable to budge them.

2) Open following links for anode illustrations and resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html
http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/video/0,,20047047,00.html

3) Rusty water implies that anode is bad.
But water released by TP valve implies overheating, or bad TP valve.

4) Replace TP valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-TP-valve.html

5) Check your burner and combustion parts for orange-or-yellow flame and sooting on parts that implies the water heater needs to be cleaned. You do not want overheated combustion chamber to cause ECO event that might require new gas control thermostat.
Gas should burn with clear blue flame.

6) Overheating tank can also imply that gas control valve thermostat is not working correctly and may soon fail. This would be evidenced if water is very hot and new TP valve doesn't stop hot water release.

7) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.

Hot water continues to run want cut off


Must be a bad water valve. Get it to day for $40 The chances of it being in the control or water level switch or temp switch is slim. Bad water valve. One way to prove it to be bad is to unplug the washer. If the water still enters then it is the water valve for sure.

My water located inside the fridge is not working, changed the filter, lowered the temp, checked the cable, ice maker is working. What could be the problem?


bad water valve,the water enters in the back and then there are two valves,one for the ice maker and one for the drinking water but you have to buy the whole valve to repair it,you just can't replace the valve for the water.call your parts store,give them the model number off of the machine and they will sell you the correct valve,either the solenoid is bad or sediment is in the valve.did you check to make sure the line isn't frozen?under the freezer door there's a connection that you can separate the water line,when it's appart hit the water,if water comes out of the line then the water line is frozen in the door and you can hit the door with a hair dryer or turn the temp.up to make it a little warmer in the freezer and after a couple of days it should work,if no water comes out bad water valve.hope this helps.

My 1/2 hp flowtec pump keeps acting up worked great for 2 weeks Then I replaced pressure switch worked for 3 days then changed plastic hose to switch worked for 1/2 a day. Will not shut off


Three things to check
1. There may be getting sediment in the water line to switch. Flush the well tank at the boiler drain to see how much sediment (if any) comes out. Flush well if heavy sediment and call Well company.
2. Make sure the check valve is OK also.
3. If the impeller is bad on the pump it will not build pressure and keep running.
4. The well may be going bad, low volume. Call well company.

Hi and wlecome to FixYa, I am Kelly. You really have 2 problems.... 1 the inlet water valve has failed causing the water in the ice tray. The only remedy for this is to replace the inlet water valve. If you can squeeze the rubber fill tube at the back of the icemaker and it is / was frozen solid the inlet water valve is for sure bad.
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker until the water valve is replaced or the current problems you have WILL repeat.

The other problem you have is due to the door being open the evaporator coils iced up big time and the normal defrosting process is not removing all of the ice. Unplug the unit and direct a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours with the freezer contents removed. While the unit is manually defrosting... open the back of the unit by removing the lower fiberboard cover and clean the condensor coils and fan along with the drip pan / tray.

After 2 hours clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service. It should work just fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Turn off the water supply valves behind the washer after you complete a lod. If there is no water in the tub a few days later, the machine has a bad internal water valve.

Ice dispensor not working


Most likely reason water not dispensing out door 1) You can turn up the temp in the freezer to see if it thaws in a couple of days, 2) Turn on the dispenser light and leave it on, will thaw the line and keep it thawed, 3) the water tank is frozen in the fresh food side (you can defrost with a blow drier) 6) the fill valve went bad or plugged ( power to fill valve but not opening) ($50) 7) Micro switch went bad in the dispenser for the water side 8) Door switch bad 9) Install a heater kit to thaw the line and it will keep it thawed ($35) PN#1381601 10) You can replace the whole door if insulation gone bad in door ( $500 to $800) 11) a broken wire to the fill valve ( no power to fill valve ) 12) with GE refrigerator bad dispenser boards or control boards ($400 and $150) 13) plugged, faulty or incorrectly installed water filter let me know more about you problem and I can help..
