There is no need to take it apart. Let it soak in a "bath" of vinegar. Do this over night and then put the shower head back on and try it again. Repeat if necessary. The vinegar will dissolve the deposits that are causing the problem.

Anyone know how to clear a clogged print head in an Epson PP-100 Discproducer disc printer? I’ve tried using the utility software but it’s still clogged. Can I syringe cleaning fluid into the tube? Can...

The very last resort is to syringe fluid into the print heads, often that will damage the heads and require head replacement. Head replacement likely will cost more than your printer. Repeated utility cleaning, "under head" cleaning with alcohol/ammonia can help.

What does the Vie brew head look like. Or the K-Cup pack holder

If you lift the handle and look up inside it looks like a thick metal needle. The Kcup holder snaps apart easily and you can see the needle once it comes apart. You can clean clogs out of both with a paper clip.

Self Cleaning filters are not cleaning themselves.

Pl check the over-head tank of your premises. Clean the tank.

Alternatively you can install a master filter in a accessable level( height ) for the easy cleaning. There are no self cleaning systems. If the filter is removed it will go and clog the out-let valve and you will end up in more maintenance cost.

We have an Ondine Hand Shower. Ondine Interbath 112.18.1M 25GPM/9.5 LPM MAX and the head is clogged and we do not get a full spray - How do I clean it? S. Seipp

Either remove it and soak it in CLR (calcium,lime, rust remover) or fill a container and tie it to shower outlet in such a way that head is emersed in the CLR. You can buy it at pretty well any hardware store, or home depot. If you don't want to try that, use vinegar, and soak it as well, I usually try to do it at end of day when shower won't be used, then let it sit in solution overnight.

I don't have enough water pressure to make cofee. Very little water comes out of the shower head. The shower head is clean, it is not plugged. I suspect it is the pump? Please advise

I had the same problem: clean showerhead, machine pumps hot water just fine, but very little brewhead flow. Descale made it worse but that was a big clue! I took apart the brewhead and found grains of scale in the boiler, like pulverized beach shell:
Some of those bits apparently made their way into the three way valve and clogged it. I could not blow air through the channel between the plunger and the boiler. Not surprising: the inlet hole inside the valve is TINY and clogs easily.a0bc8304-2405-4fdb-a444-21cf80e7701a.jpg
Once I got this part cleared up inside (and cleaned out the rest of the scale from my boiler so it didn't immediately re-clog!), my brew flow was restored.

Disconnect the hose and head and wands. Drop a quarter thru the hose, the handle sometimes clogs. peer thru the wands and inspect the elbow on the head for blockage as well

PIXMA MP830 is Printing Stripes

Really sounds like the black portion of your print head is clogged. Do the "deep clean" on the black head a couple of times. If it's still not working you may have either a bad head or a clogged purge unit.
Clogged purge units are very common on inkjets.

You can try soaking the bottom of the head on a very wet paper towel overnight. Retry using the head the next day and see if the black is working (print more text documents).

If that doesn't work, you'll have to find a way to check the purge unit/capping assembly under the home position of the head. It will require taking the unit apart and removing the purge unit and cleaning it. Make sure the two tubes are not clogged, Use a piece of wire and feed it through the tubes to try and remove any dried ink.

If you're not into trying to take the unit apart, it's time for a service shop or a replacement printer

Review my previous posts on under head cleaning. Believe me, you do not want to take it apart to clean the heads.
