I have a Kenmore Water Softener, model # 625.348591. The Salt Storage
keeps filling up with water. I emptied it 2 days ago and it is
3/4 full again
today. Can anyone give me a hint of what is going
wrong? I cleaned the Venturi
and it parts 2 days ago.
My water softener seems to have quit or at least is working half
The salt tank is half full of brine. It still has some salt ,about 4"
inthe tank and I've been hesitent to add more because of the brine
Sounds like it's not pumping out the brine. I had a couple kenmore
over the years, and had this problem a number of times. Most often
it can be fixed by cleaning the venturi. If it's lask my last one,
take the top off (4 screws) and you will see a plastic dome-like thing
over at the left. Take it off like a jar lid. Wathe carefully where
bits are as you take them out. the venturi itself is just an
impression in the
plastic. Clean it with soft cloth. Also be sure the tiny hole in the
little black rubber plug is clear. Reassemble.
I believe you can see an Owners Manula fot it at the Sears Web site.

Typical failure points are the mixing valve and salt bridges.
You can order a rebuild kit from Sears repair parts on their web site
if you are up to the task.
