    low disk space

    Hi all, I've inherited a nice little laptop (Acer Spin1 SP111-31 series) and have reloaded Win10 but it now keeps coming up with the message 'low disk space'. Settings tells me that 12.5GB is used up with system files. Is this normal or have I got the old software (from the previous user)...

    Patching plastic so it is watertight

    Gone with this stuff, suggested by FreddieMercury's twin. https://www.toolstation.com/big-boy...rn6q3dtRlGTxYHjvjSBoCA8EQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Did one sheet of fibreglass and resin/hardener and, two hours later, another sheet and resin/hardener. Will leave to cure overnight and test tomorrow...

    Patching plastic so it is watertight

    Mmm. My feeling is, that with only a couple mill to play with, I won't get a very effective seal. FreddieMercury'stwin, is this the stuff you are suggesting? Is it waterproof...

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    Success...of a sort. All the congealed fat is now removed and the same thing happened but then it struck me that when I installed the pump I neglected to reinstall the little white clip that fits where the impellor faces the sump. Replaced that and the 15 min cycle finished. No error codes...

    Patching plastic so it is watertight

    Mmm, l like your lateral thinking Nozzle. Trouble is I don't want to obscure the water/air/fat pathway. If I could get some threaded plugs with a thread 5mm wide and no more than 2 or 3 mm deep that may work

    Patching plastic so it is watertight

    Thanks FM's twin. I was thinking to use a square flat bit of plastic cut from the lid of a washing tabs box fixing it to the HE with araldite. Do you think I should source a sheet of fibreglass instead? What should I use to fix it then if not araldite? Thanks Alec. Not sure what max temp would...

    Patching plastic so it is watertight

    Hi all, I have had to drill some holes in the heat exchanger of my dishwasher in order to clean out some accumulated grease. See link: https://www.diynot.com/diy/threads/siemens-dishwasher-e23-error.597315/post-5310232 My problem is now to seal the holes. I'm thinking to cut some squares of...

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    Well, the drain pump arrived. I popped it on and no E23. I ran a 15min cycle and all went well untill the final drain (1 min left on the cycle) whereupon the drain pump turned over (and stopped) 3 times before flagging up an E25 error. I searched on this forum for that error and found this well...

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    Thanks T&B. I cannot find a vent hole anywhere near that square bit. Is it at the rear of the heat exchanger contraption? If so, any tips for removing it so as to access the vent hole? Opps, the waste path from drain motor to the end of the waste hose is clear. The only blockage is as mentioned...

    Thanks Assuhors, Any idea what that discolouration on the LHS of the heat exchanger is and if it might affect the operation of the machine?

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    By passed the contraption and same thing happened. Removed the drain pump, found no blockages and the pump moves freely. Decided to buy a new (compatible) pump off ebay and try that. I may be wasting £22 but even the chance of saving the £500+ a new dishwasher would cost has gotta be worth a go.

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    No. My earlier repairs were conducted without removing any covers. I have now checked the hose from the pump outlet to the contraption I posted a picture of. It was clear of restrictions but full of water, as I expected. Do you have any idea what the darkened areas of the picture I posted are? I...

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    Update. I've got the LHS off and find this contraption. There seem to be 2 waste hoses at the bottom LHS. One from the drain pump? and the other to the outside. a) what is this contraption? and b) can I just pull both hoses off and join them?

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    Hi all, My Siemens dishwasher suffered from E15 error. After switching off/on the drain motor was rotating constantly so after doing the usual checks (filter, drain moter rotating freely, outlet hose, U bend) I pulled it out, rocked it forward and it worked for a while. This process was followed...
