You can splice a new line in. You'll just need the 1/4 inch connectors you can get from an appliance parts store or online from sears etc.

No water going to ice maker and water dispenser in the door. replaced the "dual water inlet valve" 2 weeks ago and thought the problem was solved. No problems until yesterday when the same thing start


If your water line to the refridge has a shutoff where it is connected into a house water line, this shutoff can become plugged up. A lot of them have a needle type shutoff that when screwed in shuts the water off. This is where the house line gets punctured. When screwed out this little hole can become plugged up.. Screw shutoff in and out a couple of times and if you can disconnect line from this shutoff. Then open the shutoff and see if you can get water out of it. This may allow you to flush the hole and debris out of the shutoff. Then reconnect line and see if this helps. If it happens again you may want to replace the shutoff valve with a new one.

What are the dangers of using a brass fitting to splice a fuel(gasoline) line?


You should be good. You might talk to you local marina about a quick disconnect. They have a stop valve built into them so you don't come back to a boat full of gas.

What happens if the humidifier runs out of water? Humidifier is new and working fine. I Does the humidifier shut off automatically when it runs out of water?


The humidifier has a float valve in it much like a toilet tank does. If the water gets to low, the float valve should allow more water to enter the tank automatically. When it reaches the proper level, the float valve stops the water. The water line (either copper or plastic) coming into the humidifier should have a shutoff valve on it. Make sure that it is turned on.

The installation seemed to go without a hitch until I turned on the water. The water would not enter the tank. It is like a valve is closed in the tank which will not permit water into the tank.(669709...

Turned off the hot water to fix a leaking tap. now the tap has no hot or cold water and the hot water tank valve is leaking?


It sounds like two problems.
Problem 1) Clog inside faucet or clog inside pipes at faucet
Remove supply tubes leading to faucet and see if problem is inside pipes or inside faucet.
My bet is clog inside faucet.

If you have galvanized pipe that meets copper pipe, this can be trouble spot.

Problem 2) Water heater leak ... you say tank valve is leaking? Is that cold-water shut-off valve? Or tank drain valve? Or TP valve?

If cold water shut-off is leaking, then replace shut off.

If tank drain valve is leaking, then check if plastic valve is cracked. If drain valve is cracked, then replace with a brass valve from Home Depot. If plastic valve breaks off, then use hammer and screwdriver to gently chip out the broken plastic valve. New valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe. If valve is just dripping, then put garden-hose cap over end of valve and screw down tight.

If TP valve is leaking, then replace with same temperature and pressure rating.
New TP valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe.

Problem 3) If pressure is low all over house:
Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.

Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
Open faucet and check if pressure drops. This says if problem is inside pipes that enter house.

Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
This says if pressure problem is before -or- after water heater.

If problem is before the water heater, then shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
If problem is after water heater, it could be in hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.

Remove hot water line leading from water heater and check pressure. This says if problem is where hot water leaves tank.
Read articles above about clogs inside water lines.

Toilet refills and water stops running. a couple seconds later get the sound of air which continues. if I push black float down a bit it stops manually but when I let go continues??


It can be one of two things first you either have air in your watter line in this case let water run for a while and see if you get air if so let it run until it quits spitting or contact your water company for help.Second the diaphram is worn in the top of the valve in this case the whole valve will need to be replaced turn off water flush toilet put pan or bowl under water line at toilet remove water line at toilet .Unscrew the fitting and remove hose next remove the large plastic nut on the bottom of tank .Some water will leak out hence the bowl! remove valve replace wit new one line up in same direction it was removed put on new rubber washer supplied,Tighten plastic nut replace hose and tighten turn on water that should fix it!

Tank wont refill after flushing.


The ball **** controls the water flow into the tank when flushed. If the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not fill the tank or the valve could be defective. If after pushing down the float and observing little or no water you need to replace the ball **** or the water valve is turned off. Turn the water off at the shutoff valve. Put a towel under the water supply hose and unscrew the water supply hose at the bottom of the ball ****. Drain any excess water at the bottom of the tank using a shop towel or paper towels ringing them out when they become saturated with water. Remove the ball **** and replace the old one with a new one available from a hardware store. Make sure to follow instructions on washer placement to avoid leaks. Replace the water supply hose and tighten snugly and be careful not to over tighten to crack any plastic. Turn on the water shutoff valve and adjust the float so the water stops at the tank water line.
