Question about Kenmore Elite Hybrid Water Softener Gray More than 6
Pressing SELECT button does nothing.
Posted by Anonymous on
Very common with this type of unit. The switches are prone to corrosion and failure. You can buy a new timer from Sears (~$150) or off Ebay (~$100), or use a simple, no tools procedure, I use on my Sears softener.
-Unplug the softener.
-Carefully remove the top cover from the softener (usually 2 tabs in front and 2 in back).
-remove the timer panel (mine is held on by 2 tabs, one on each side).
-unplug the wiring to the timer.
-remove the timer (mine is held in place by a little plastic hook at each corner, remove one side and first and then the other.
-with the timer out, you can see the switches. while pressing on one of the switches, move your finger in a circular pattern (this rubs the contacts together on the inside of the switch, allowing the contact material to "grind" through the corrosion). Do this with all the switches.
-to reinstall, reverse the processes.

Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:
1. Unplug the breadmaker.
2. Confirm the power source you're accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.
3. Plug the breadmaker in.
4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:
3. No, you were not able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or simply discard it.
4. Yes, you have confirmed that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing down continuously on the Start button until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Beware: Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press and hold the Start button to reboot the system.
That should fix it. Hope this helps!
Special Note: Often the + and - Timer Delay buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours. If you suspect the Timer Delay feature has been engaged accidentally, you'll need to reboot the breadmaker's electronics. You can do this by pressing down on the Start button continuously until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Beware: Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press and hold the Start button to reboot the system.
