20 Most Recent Culligan Sediment Water Filter - Page 6 Questions & Answers

Please check the timer for proper amount of recharge or back wash time. I think your "in water" for charging or back washing is controlled by a electric valve. Double check that it is closing when it should close. If necessary, check its voltage with a volt/ohm meter. When the water is suppose to be off, you should have no voltage at that valve, it must be closed. There is the possibility it is stuck partly in the open position by a piece of debris.

I am not a Culligan Expert but I am familiar with a variety of water filtering methods and systems.

Do I understand your waste water from this unit goes back to your septic system? Why? Is there a local code that requires that? Do you use salt water in this system? I think if you have salt water going into your septic, a burned septic pump is the least of your worries.

If salt water is involved particularly, or if it is just back wash water, can you dig yourself a dry well and feed this water into that dry well (a dry well is as simple as a hole in the ground filled with gravel and protected from dirt infiltration by a layer of straw).

I hope this helps you

A sediment filter only removes sand and dirt, you might need to go with a carbon filter or a carbon block filter ( http://www.freshwatersystems.com/s-430-carbon-filters.aspx ) to remove bad taste and odor. If you have any questions about these types of filters please give us a call or visit us online.

For the shower try a Culligan WSH-C125 ( https://www.freshwatersystems.com/p-1395-culligan-wall-mount-filtered-shower-head-wsh-c125.aspx ) they work perfect. For your drinking water you might want to try a point of use Reverse Osmosis System.

I think you need to replace some parts with the Culligan-set 01016267 . I did have the same problem and after it was replaced everything went just as normal.

Quoting from link to free manual shown:

There are certain conditions that can be interpreted by the circuit board as a failure of the drive motor or motor
position switch. Upon failure detection the control will cease further operation. A telephone hand set symbol will be
shown in the upper left corner of the display and the error code will be shown. Listed below are the different error
1. Motor Always Turning
Error code "E1" occurs when the circuit board detects changes in the motor program switch when the motor is
not supposed to be turning. The phone icon and "E1" will be lit in the display.
2. Motor Never Turns
The Culligan Medallist Series control is equipped to detect no change in the motor position when the motor is
supposed to be turning (motor or piston locked in a frozen position). The AccuSoft circuit board will apply
power to the motor for 20 seconds. If there is no change in the motor homing or position switch, the control will
power down for 1 minute. The circuit board will repeat this procedure two more times in an attempt to remove the
obstruction. If no movement has been detected, the control will permanently power down and a phone icon and
an "E2" will appear in the display.
3. Homing Error
Error code "E3" occurs when the circuit board detects when the control is unexpectedly in the home position.
The phone icon and "E3" will be lit in the display.
Error Display Cancellation
The error code display can be removed by removing the power to the control for 1 minute. After clearing an error
condition, the control will default to the factory settings when power is restored.
