Question and Answers

Q:

I keep getting dripping from the elbow, part number 7011785, on a Kenmore Model 625-349224 iron filter. Why?

A:

You were told correctly that there should be not pressure on the line to the permanganate bottle. Put the filter in bypass and remove the tubing from the elbow. Place the end of the tube in a bottle or pan and put the filter back into the service mode. If water comes out the end of the tubing you disconnected from the elbow, replace the rotor inside the valve. This is the part that runs on the seals you replaced inside the valve.

If there is no water coming from the tubing, use pipe dope or teflon tape on the threads of the nipple. It might be leaking around the threads that screw into the valve on the bottle.

Q:

Iron filter model 625.349224 not drawing potassium permanganate 625349224 Kenmore Iron filter

A:

Make sure the float is not stuck in the up position. Check all the tubing and connections between the valve on the pottassium permanganate bottle and valve body on the mineral tank for any air leaks. Any air leaks will prevent the venturi from drawing the pottassium permanganate into the valve and mineral tank. 

The diaphragm will have to be taken out and inspected for any damage or rips/holes. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your iron filter.

Q:

My potassium permanganate bottle for my iron filtration system leaks water through the cap. Could I have a problem with the valve body assembly on my bottle?

A:

The rotor and seal inside the valve should turn the water off to the nozzle/venturi when you are not in the fill or solution draw positions.

You need to replace the rotor and seal in the valve. The instructions for doing this are in the owners manual on page 23. It sounds like you are pretty handy, so replacing these parts should be fairly easy. Before you take the valve apart, note the position of the valve as indicated by the letters on the cam. After the repairs are made, put the valve back in the position it was in before applying power.
