Water maker issues

My water maker was running ver slow. I followed some advice and disconnected the hose at the back , reconnected and it worked fine! For about 3 days. Now it's spurting out at the beginning and then dripping through. Help!

If the fill tube continues to drip water the fill valve is likely going bad. Is there a water filter in the system that you can check? Did you flush the main line in the back into a pan for a few seconds while you had it off to check flow rate, etc.?

Just purchased new Brinkman 5 burner Pro series. Worked fine when I tested it but now the main burner is the only one that will ignite and it won't stay on. The side burner works great.


First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kinks or twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!

Hope this helped you . Please let me know and Happy Grilling.

Ice maker not making ice.


TRY DISCONNECTING THE ICE MAKER FROM INSIDE AND RUN HOT WATER OVER IT UN TIL IT IS COMPLETELY THAWED, THEN RECONNECT IT AND SEE IF IT WILL MAKE ICE NOW. SOMETIMES ICE MAKERS CAN BECOMED BLOCKED BY ICE.

Water wont go all the way into the ice maker


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
Or
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice maker is not working. No water is getting up to maker. Ice maker sounds like it is working. Tube in back has no water in it.Arm is down. Water is coming out of door just fine. There is no built in...


There is a screen in the water inlet valve where the water supply connects.

Why would the water start coming out very slow?


If you are referring to water coming out the fountain it could be a leak in the system somewhere allowing air into the lines that run the water, if you are referring to water coming out of the ice maker itself you need a new ice maker the lining is bad

Clogging Frequently -- Very slow brew


Hello enrichyourli,
I recently had this similar problem. If you still have you machine try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ
