Sounds like you need a new thermostat.

My reserve coolant is boiling but its stay full ...why???

Might be mostly water. Check the gravity of the coolant, one of those little floaty ball things at walmart, $2, If it is not up to par with 50/50 coolant, fill it up or drain some of the water out. It is building up too much pressure and releasing the boiling stuff into the reserve tank, the cap could be bad, not tight, could be a blown head gasket, check this stuff out. Look for oil in the top of the radiator, steam out the exhaust, usually loses water though. Water boils at 220 and coolant 260 in a closed system, keep an eye on the temp gauge, do not let it over heat. It will be shot if it does. Hope this helps.

Why does the water boiled in this kettle smell and taste chemically? Any boiled in a plastic kettle in my home is fine.


the chemical taste of smell from your kettle means that the element in the kettle which provide heat to boiled the water has gone bad due to over heating

this occur when there is shortage of water level in the kettle when the power supply is on

to fix up this problem of smell and chemical taste in your boiled water you will have to make a change of the element (heater)because it has gone bad you can get a replacement of it in the store .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

My gas water heater sometimes sounds like its perculating. Is this a problem?

It can be if it keeps boiling the water. Your tank will have a pressure relief valve with a copper pipe dropping down near the there signs of water coming out of the pipe? Be certain it is working by testing it...lift the lever in the center of the relief (Place a bucket under the pipe first to catch the water that will flow out). Over time these valves can rust up and not work.

In the worst case, boiling the water causes steam build up in the tank which is under pressure. Enough steam can cause the tank to rupture and that is a bad thing.

I am not certain but you probably need a new temperature probe if the tank is over heating the water inside.

2001 Hyundai Accent. Heating and stalls

If the water tends to keep going down then there has to be a leak somewhere. Try also looking at the hose coming from the overflow tank and see if the hose might be kinked. You might also be blowing antifreeze out the tailpipe. Take a look and if there is bluish white smoke then you have confirmed that theory,

Bunn Coffee machine only makes 1/2 pot

What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.

Water Boiling in tank

Unplug the machine and remove the top. You will find a little box with a knob or a "T" on it, this is the thermostat. Just turn it down a little, put the top back on and plug it back it.

I would suggest descaling the unit, or replacing your thermostat.
A defective thermostat would not cut out the heater after the water is boiled, excessive scale would render the thermostat ineffective, but not to the extent you describe.

Hope this helps.

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full

Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.
