    Kappa Problem

    I am having an issue with the solenoid, the water won't turn off. I ran the K35 test and it says they are opening and closing, yet still water. Any ideas, or do these things just plain 'ol wear out?

    Take solenoid apart and clean. The "piston portion" may have build up not allowing travel to open and close properly. A magnetic field actuates the movement but with not alot of force. Lightly sand all moving pieces and reassemble. Good Luck

    Thanks! I'll pull it out tomorrow, and of course it's buried up under the cabinet. Doesn't look like much comes apart, but I'll give it a shot.
