Measured Fill not Measuring Properly

Everything on my Kenmore 55683 is working properly, except for the Measured Fill feature. It measures slightly over the amount requested, usually when set to "ounces" setting.

Really most folks have to keep their setting on their fridge on about a 6-7 or-8 setting with the amount of food that is kept in the fridge now.
YOU CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE RELATIVE temp if you like by placing a fridge thermometer in the appliance. Optimal fresh food should be around 40-43 degrees F on average to keep things on the cooler side without freezing.
Hope this helps

Try setting the freezer temperature a couple of degrees lower then reset the fridge temperature lower...You may not have enough differential between the freezer and the fridge temps...

If it still does not work right then check you manual and reset everything back to factory settings and start over...

if that does not work then you have a bad board...

It comes on and off very often is that normal, sometimes it comes on for 1 sec and goes off.

There is probably nothing wrong.
When the device senses that it is too humid in the room, it turns on. Due to a slight error in its humidity measuring system, it switches on, then it realizes that it isn't humid enough to be on, and turns back off.
I have had several and have heard other stories of similar items behaving in this way.
Or, it is perhaps that the adjustment the machine wants to make in the humidity level is low enough that it only needs to be on for a second.
Nonetheless, check to make sure everything is working properly.

I have trouble steering...the truck wanders over the road...i have replaced idler arms, pitman arm, center link, shocks, brakes, new tires, front end alignment, bearings...the right front tire sits...

when the steering wheel is centred, the front wheels should both point slightly inwards.
after the amount of parts changed, i would recommend that you get the tracking checked at a garage using the proper, calibrated measuring systems, to make sure that the steering is set up properly and safely.

What is the difference between ml and grams. My

one is for measuring liquids (ml) and one is for measuring solids or dry materials (gms). A reference 237 ml is equal to 1 cup which should work for cottage cheese.

Dishes in upper tray coming out not so clean!


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

What causes high co percentage in emission test

Measured in percent, this is the result of incomplete combustion. In other words, the fuel mixture has been compressed and ignited, but could not complete the combustion process due to the lack of oxygen. This failure is always mixture or ignition timing related. The ideal reading for CO is 0%. A normal reading for CO is usually around .25 to .75% with 1.2% being the failure mark in most areas for vehicles 1984 and newer. Earlier cars are allowed higher readings. Any car equipped with an Oxygen sensor will try to run under 1.0% as measured before the Catalytic converter (use that test connection for set-up). A vehicle with a CAT, O2 sensor, and an AIR system (Air Injection Reaction) will read almost 0% with everything working properly.

1993 Grand Jeep Cherokee has fluctuating High emissions

everthing effects the reading. pedal position, rpm load engine temp. air temp. all that stuff you added was just a waste of time and money. What you should of done wa diagnosed it correctly so your not cheating an emission test. Since barley failed the first time I would of recommended a tunup if not done in 40,000 miles. I would have looked at the scanner data to see if the inputs were correct. Iwould have serviced the oil if its been awhile. If everything checked out i would of recommended a catalytic converter. But there are 3 test to determine if the cat is dead we do first. If your car was barley failing and you needed a tunup and the cat was still good the need for a tuneup could toast the cat within a couple weeks.
