on the bottom left is where you need to put the female plug to stop water flow. Its hidden by the strap but just take off the hose and screw in plug

this is where the water is going into the waste tank. If you plug one end you need to plug this end. take off the hose and fitting and insert male plug

these are the two parts you need. I got them at Parker distributor.

this will hold you over until you get a new selinoid

I know, your thinking what happens if my water box overheats? It has no place to go. Well I took a thermometer and watched the temps. It never got close to the temp the selinoid opens. not the best solution but you gotta use your machine until you get a new part.

Mine happened just after I got my machine too. Havent had a problem since.

Not sure why Jon Don didnt know. its pretty simple.

"Gas TM is so much easier" they say...well...mrotto's 7+ responses make me want to start with an electric set up. I live in a 400 sq. ft. studio built in the 90's. It has 7 separate 20 amps circuits...

Got two slide-in Apex 570's. No issues that have ever stopped me from completing a day of work in 18 months.

The Mytex Vortex Lite portable I bought shut off first time I used it (live wires on the inside were loose), leaks a little bit from the fresh water inlet (had to put a towel under it).

SO moral of the story is, ANY machine can have issues.

But to be fair my TM with 1000 horus developed a minor coolant leak. No big deal to repair.

Consider talking to someone who has had an electric rig
• • • like a Bane-Clean. Someone here probably has or has had the TM system you are looking at buying • it always helps to get an owner’s opinion. The rest of us usually learn something new too & it’s cool to read to boot !

Whats also cool is that this kind of stuff stays relevant forever.

Was it the solenoid like Jadon‘s TM ?

Thanks. I have been trying to talk to as many operators as possible.

go for it. my responses were to give him the specific answer to his question visually.
I can tell by your answer that you are pulling from a deep knowledge base. I have no knowledge of the components of a gas TM. The components of electric machines are more familiar to me. Pumps, fans, tubing, wiring and the like are things I have fixed before. I am torn between a used TM and van and an electric set up.

I've used a few different types of gas tm, both slide in and direct drive, and my number one issue that stalls me out is usually wiring failure. Loose or shorted or broken connector. Little things that can happen on any machine. I've had both tm's and portables catch on fire. Either way you go there's going to be similar problems that can occur.
