What does the $199 installation charge for Kenmore 370 Series water softener cover?


A Sears installation includes the following services:

  • Pick up your product and deliver it to you
  • Unpack your product and prepare it for installation
  • Inspect it for any damage or defects
  • Inspect your installation site and provide a quote if any additional work is required
  • Connect your new product to existing, code-approved utilities per manufacturer instructions
  • Level and secure your product, and install any manufacturer-supplied safety hardware
  • Test your product to ensure it performs properly
  • Give you clear, easy-to-understand instructions on how to operate the product
  • Clean up and dispose of any job-related debris
If you do not have the plumbing in place for the installation of the water softener, you will likely need to have a plumber arrange the piping according to the guidelines in this owner's manual/installation guide: Owner's Manual . The installer may be able to give you an estimate for this work if needed. I do not believe that it will be included in the $199 installation charge.

The installation will have a 1 year warranty.

my 199 250 just hums when turn on, blade will not turn, did once get it to turn but very slow????


Thank you for your question.

I can understand not being able to use your radial arm saw.

I am going to assume that the model number you gave me is a 113.199250 Radial arm saw. Hopefully you did not see or smell any smoke from the motor. If you did the motor may have to be replaced.

  • Sometimes the quick fix is to use an air compressor and blow the dust out of the motor near the end bell where the start switch is located.

Most of the time when this symptom happens, the motor start switch has gotten saw dust in between the contacts in the switch and the saw is trying to start on the run windings instead of the start windings.

  • To check and clean the contacts or to replace the switch you will need to raise the arm as high as it will go.

  • Remove the blade and blade guard.

  • Release and turn the motor head so the shaft points towards the table and locate and remove the screws that secure the two halves of the motor cover.

  • Once removed you will see a flat two wire switch mounted the end bell of the motor. In some cases the front of the switch is clear.

  • You will need to remove the screws that secure the switch to the motor and watch where the finger tang protrudes off the side of the switch so you can put the tang back in the same spot on the motor centrifugal switch position.

  • Carefully take the switch apart and clean the contacts. If they are burnt, you will need to replace the switch with a new designed switch that has a rubber boot around it to prevent dust from getting into the switch.

The part number for the new switch is; 64936 and you can purchase the switch from;Sears Parts Direct .

  • If the contacts look good just clean them and re-install the switch onto the motor.

If this does not solve the problem if could be the capacitor under the electrical cover on the motor.

If you need further help, please use the link and I will be glad to help you further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I have a Kenmore furnace. The only filter I can find for it is #FF-1025-B, 199/16X149/16X13/16. Is there a way to get a more efficient allergenic one to use?


I don't see another filter available that matches that one. If you reply with the model number of your Kenmore furnace, I can research the filter more thoroughly to see if there are other alternatives.
