This was working fine up until a month or so ago. The low salt level indicator came on and the softner hasn't been working since.
I refilled the unit with salt and tried to reset the low salt level and light. Doesn't allow me to. Just beeps. Tried to manually regenerate. Wont let me. Button doesn't do anything.
I can change the other settings (regen time, hardness level, etc), but nothing else. I don't believe it's auto-regenerating either. The salt has remained at one level for a few weeks now.
Skip does that work on all Kenmores? And what else does it allow you to do?
So doing a regen now would NOT turn the motor? the Motor would not run?
If you push regen now and the control face changes then that part is working but if the motor is not turning then I would say that the motor is gone.. cheap motors..
If it is under a year you might be able to get it under warranty..
The motor does not run. It's totally silent. Nothing happens.
Have a 24 volt trans former around to try a jump on the motor?
Or might you have some small jumpers to go from the in line of power to and go straight to the motor ?
I am betting on the motor is shot...
Thanks, do you have a book for this info and if so where can I get one?
I'll take another look to see if I get the error code.
Other than that, i do not have the equipment or know-how to perform a jump on the motor.
Is there anyway, via diagnostic mode, to tell how many times this thing has regerated or cycled? It's practically brand new. Out of warranty but under utilized until about 4 months ago.
