SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius CTD00 dryer won't heat

I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: HOTPOINT AQUARIUS CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYER CTD40

Not sure but try this..it workd with my Whirlpool dryer. Remove the condenser (clean it with water and a toothbrush too coz it will probably be clogged up) and pop a tea towel in the hole where the condenser was. Tip the dryer on its side and any trapped water will run out onto the tea towel or the floor OR the water reservoir where it should have gone in the first place......

Empty water light, empty condenser


I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

Keurig model B40 How do I empty the resevoir , I can empty the cold watet tank. We are moving so need to completely empty all water.


Hi,

The water reservoir lifts out. There are two tabs on the side which lock it in place. You may have to pres on them to remove it. If you are wanting to completely empty the entire machine, I have found an instruction manual and have instructions for purging: Fill reservoir with clean water and replace on machine with lid on it. Raise and lower handle without K cup inserted. Wait for the red light next to "heating goes off.
The blue lights on the control center will begin flashing. Put a cup on the drip tray and press "Brew"

When finished, repeat brew procedure 2 or 3 times and inner tank should be empty.

Hope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me.

Good luck with your move,

Can you you tell me why there is a flashing red light on the coffee machine


Descaling light:
• on and fl ashing: signals the need to perform a descaling cycle

Machine ready light:
• permanently on: signals that the machine is ready for use.
• on and fl ashing: signals that the machine is warming up.

Alarm light:
• permanently on : signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full (in this case, also empty
the coffee grounds drawer in order to prevent failures).
• on and fl ashing slowly: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the
dregdrawer is not inserted the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service
door is open or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the
desired position.
• on and quickly fl ashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit.

How do you descale my Delonghi Magnifica?


10.3 DESCALING Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale. When the light starts flashing (section 12 - point 5), it is time to descale the machine. NOTE: when the light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to prepare coffee. Proceed as follows: • Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical service centers. Note: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive to acid such as marble, limestone and granite. • place a container with a minimum capacity of 34 oz. under the cappuccino frother (Fig. 3); • turn the machine on by pressing the button (Fig. 4). • wait for the green and indicator lights to come on steady. • press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds (Fig.14). The decalcification warning light will illuminate (section 11 - point 8) to indicated the start of the descaling program (the and lights remain off to indicate that it is not possible to make coffee). • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig.5). The descaling solution will come out of the cappuccino frother and start to fill the container underneath. • the descaling program automatically performs a series of deliveries and pauses, so as to remove the lime scale deposits from inside the coffee maker. Fig.32 The two red buttons have snapped out CORRECTLY The two red buttons have not snapped out CORRECT INCORRECT 17 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS • after around 30 minutes, when the light comes on (section 12 - point 1), turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise (Fig.6) until it stops. The machine must be rinsed so as to eliminate the residues of descaling solution from inside the machine. Proceed as follows: • remove the water tank, rinse it and fill it with clean water. • reposition the tank. • empty the collection container (located under the milk frother) that is full of liquid, and then replace it under the milk frother. • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig. 5). Hot water will come out of the milk frother and fill the container underneath. • when the tank is empty, the l ight goes off and the light comes on (section 12 - point 1). • turn the steam knob all the way clockwise (Fig. 6) and fill the water tank with clean water again. • the program of descaling is now terminated and the machine is ready to make coffee again. NOTE: if the descaling procedure is interrupted before completion, the alarm (section 12 - point 5) is not deactivated and the procedure must be started again form the beginning.

Ink red light on . which colour is out?


When red ink light flashes - one or more ink cartridges is low. When you print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

When red ink light remains on - one or more ink cartridges is empty. When you try to print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

Furthermore: When following the procedure for installing a new cartridge, if the red ink light was on or flashing, pressing the ink button will cause the carriage to stop with the cartridge that needs replacing under the "ink out mark" (ink droplet with a slash through it).

Red descale light is on


I use distilled white vinegar, but you can use specialized coffee cleaners with this model:

Descaling
Descaling 11
Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
operating at full potential.
1
Descaling products are widely available from stores selling coffeemakers and espresso
machines. Only use a product intended for descaling. Mix the descaling product
directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling
packaging. Replace the water container on the machine.
2 Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down,
and close the brew mechanism. When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release
the start/stop button. The brew cycle will fill the machine with descaling solution. Empty
the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
3 Open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. When the
machine stops running, empty the cup, and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness. Discard the
remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it thoroughly and refill
with fresh, cold water.
4 Open and close the brew mechanism again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and hold the start/stop button to flush water
through the machine. The MANUAL light will flash. When the cup is full, release the
start/stop button, empty the cup, and replace it on the cup stand.
5 Repeat step 4, flushing clean water through the machine in the same manner and
emptying the cup as it fills. To ensure that all the descaling solution is completely rinsed
away, flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
