As NECESSARY as a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) would be if ONE were prone to stuffing a fork into a plugged in toaster... full of flaming toast... while reclined in a bathtub full of bubble bath...

Seriously... a decade ago+

We had a machine MALFUNCTION... WHICH was covered BY OUR INSURANCE (included code coverage)... topped $50K... We added an additional $50, 000.00 to get things up to snuff :appliances & stuff... back to normal (with a few upgrades)... Six months later.

(environmental asbestos and lead tests... demolition... marital deprivation... no heat (practically camping) in the winter and a 62 mile one way commute... when I could rejoin my wife... unkind).

If you tamper with safety equipment... (a "DELIBERATE" act)
you will be taking all that expense on YOURSELF...

That is not adjusted for INFLATION... and assumes no one is killed or injured in the catastrophe that is guaranteed to follow... I'm just saying.

Try this instead...
Playing catch with a loaded black-powder antique flintlock would be faster, cheaper, kinder and smarter.

Just my humble opinion.

Door is leaking


The first thing I would check is the overfill protection float. Check under the float for objects that may keep the protector from moving up or down.

How to fix a refill valve


  • Brass-style toilet refill valves can often be repaired. To take a valve apart, remove the lever's screws. This allows you to lift out the float arm and valve plunger. Check the flat rubber washer on the end of the plunger. If it's worn, you can pull it out with pliers and either turn it around or replace it. This procedure usually corrects an overfilling problem. Next, reassemble the valve. If the tank continues to overfill, check to make sure the operating lever at the end of the float arm is functioning properly.

  • New refill valve. To replace the entire refill valve assembly, first turn off the water supply. The tank should then be flushed and sponged out, as detailed previously. Remove the inlet nut and riser tube from the bottom of the refill valve beneath the tank. Hold the refill valve inside the tank with a padded locking plier/wrench to keep it from turning, and remove the nut beneath the tank. With the nut off, the refill valve assembly can be lifted out and a new one inserted in its place. Follow the exact instructions included with the unit you purchase.

  • Finally, reconnect the riser tube and turn the water on. The tank should fill, allowing you to adjust the water level according to the instructions that were included with the valve.

  • Anti-siphon valves. The best refill valves offer anti-siphon protection. In fact, this may be a requirement. This protection prevents back siphonage of toilet tank water into your home's potable water supply system if a vacuum occurs in the toilet's water supply system. Whether or not this is a code requirement, the anti-siphon valve is a good idea to protect your family and public health.

Clean light is flashing


please read your instruction manual and go the section troubleshooting
press down the overfill protection float on the floor of the dishwasher's tub in the right, front corner near the door. If it cannot move up and down freely, the "clean" light will flash.

I have a 2003 superglide and the carb keeps building up with fuel and runs really rich and u can smell fuel .. any help


It sounds like you have a bad needle in the carb allowing the float bowl to overfill. It depends on what type of carb is on the engine as well. If it's the original Keihin CV carb, you'll have to remove the carburetor from the engine and remove the float bowl, the float, and the needle. Replace the needle and reset the float height is necessary. There is a special way of setting the float height on this carb. It must be set with the carbuetor body positioned at an angle. If you'll contact me directly at [email protected] , I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level on the Keihin CV. If your bike has a different type of carburetor, let me know this and I'll try to help you with that as well. Don't forget to tell me what you need.

Good Luck

Leaking?


I had this problem, our kenmore dw would leak maybe 1 out of 5 runs. found that the overfill float was so full of crud and calcium that it was weighing it down, and alowing too much water in - thus leaking out the top of the shaft of the float.
You must unlatch the float below the dw, very difficult, try a mirror, you also must remove the micro switch attached to the bottom of the float first. This fixed the problem!

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - leaks from Overfill Protection Float


I had the same problem, but mine leaked every time. I have a kenmore ultra wash dishwasher no. 665.15762. I took the bottom rotating sprayer off and found that the plastic piece under the sprayer had a few loose screws and the rubber gasket, under that piece, had blown out at the corner facing the overfill protection float. I took out all the screws and re-mounted the gasket in place and put all the screws back and tightened them. It solved the problem. I hope that this helps others.

Water leaking from my washer


hi sir Dishwashers are usually protected from overfilling by a float switch. This switch is located in the bottom of the unit. Here's how to check and replace it:Step 1: Open the door and remove the bottom dish rack. Check to see if the float valve is stuck. If it is, clean away food debris around the float. With a screwdriver handle, lightly tap the top of the float to free it.
thanks.................rate it

Overfill Protection tripped on ASKO D3112 dishwasher


Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.
