Late model classic 3 way valve
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:12:40 AM »
Hi all,
I recently purchased a new classic model number RI9403/11 and notice there is no outlet/exhaust pipe as in earlier models.
I have two questions, firstly, does this mean the late model classics don’t have a 3 way valve (therefore I shouldn’t back flush it) and secondly, if it does have a 3 way valve where does the waste water go?
Thanks in advance.

I don't know one serial number from another, but if your machine has a stainless steel boiler, then it does not have a 3-way solenoid and you do not want to to backflush.

Ah.... I see. So it doesn’t have a 3 way valve. Thanks for your responses.
