Question about Cecilware CL-100E Stainless Steel

1 Answer

1. We have a CL100 electric sn D108302 purchased nearly 30 yrs ago. Some problems have surfaced which are probably minor. 1. Water comes out of what appears to be an overflow on the front of the tank. Is something malfunctioning to cause this? 2. And maybe related there is a float located in a small "tank" at one end of the coffee maker. There is no water in the "tank" to cause the float to rise. As a result a circuit closes and "hums" continuously but nothing ever happens. Is a low level suppose to cause a pump to run and fill the tank? Is the float suppose to sit on the bottom and the circuit to be continuously closed causing the hum?

It sounds ike the float is working, and trying to get the unit to fill. I found little information on the net about this unit, but I did find the following webpage that has parts, one of them being a "dump valve": http://www.3wire.com/webstore/Parts/PartsByManufacturer.aspx?mfrcode=CECILWARE&gclid=CNO9q4WWkKYCFQgHbAodvy7log
In order to be able to figure out if the valve is bad, you will have to figure out the wiring from the float and make sure it goes to the valve, and measure the signal. If the valve is getting voltage, but not opening, it is stuck or bad.
Here is Cecilware's support site, and you might contact them to see if they can recognize the bad part by the symptoms in their database- they often can:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

High Electric Bill due to Well Pump Cycling On Frequently


The short run time of the pump indicates very litttle water volume is needed to reach to turn off pressure. To me this indicates you may have two problems. There is a leak somewhere in the system that allows the pressure to drop to the turn on point. Any check valve will fail eventually so barring any other leak that is your problem. I would think only one check valve is needed in the system so the second one may have been added to crutch the first one leaking. Normally the one check valve is placed on the pump before it is attached to the well pipe. The pump must be removed from the well to accomplish the replacement.

The second problem has something to do with the storage tank. If the pumps runs whenever you open a faucet or in your short cycle situation, then your tank is way too small or it is "water logged". Assuming it has been sized correctly, which means at least 20 gallon capacity then air needs to be added to the tank which will compress when the pump adds water until the high pressure setting is reached. When water is release to the house the air will expand until the low pressure setting is reached and the cycle repeats. The point here is that a significant quanity of water flows between pump cycles.

If your tank was installed in perhaps the last 20 years then it is likely a bladder type whitch contains the water so it never comes in contact with the steel tank, preventing internal corrosion and leaching of metals into the water. If the bladder has failed then the formally isolated air will have been absorbed by the water and your short cycling condition develops. That is what happens in non bladder tanks so air needs to be added periodically. I think all bladder tanks have a car tire like valve stem attached to the tank so that the opperating pressure can be set by the manufacture. The valve stem rairly leaks so bladder failure causes the loss of the air in the tank. There should be a label on the tank specifying the factory pressure. Use a tire gauge to test for the proper pressure. Add air if it is below setting.

Lost the 9.6 v battery charger for the remote control truc


I would try a Radio Shack dealer if you have one near you, as long as the electric rating is exactly the same as is the plug connection it should work fine.

The problem; water drips from beneath the ice maker inside the cooling area. This water eventually freezes and turns the whole ice maker compartment into a block of ice.


YOUR ICE MAKER IS OVER FLOWING, MAY HAVE DEBRI IN THE WATER VAULVE BEHIND YOUR FRIDGE, I HAD THIS PROBLEM 2 YRS AGO AND REPLACED ALL KINDS OF GADGETS IN THE FREEZER, AND FOR ME IT WAS CALCIM DEPOSIT IN THE VALVE , NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT. I HOPE THIS HELPS, AND I HOPE YOUR PROBLEM IS MINOR. YOU HAVE A GOOD DAY. LYNDA

Aprilaire Model 700 - not achieving 40% humidity


if it is set up right, you should be able to run your fan 100% of the time and the humidifier will come on when there is a need for humidity. you can experiment with leaving the fan on and see if this helps. it will run your electric bill up a little and also you will have a lot of waste water. that is a drawback to the bypass type humidifiers. also a factor is if the water supply is hooked up to the hot or cold side. it will humidify better on the hot side, but you tend to get more deposits that plug the solenoid over time and you will be running your water heater quite a bit. 1600 sqft may be pushing the limit of this humidifier.
