How do I fix a water softener?

** Please make a category for Household Appliances-Water Softener ******

Sears/Kenmore Ultra Soft 200 water softener
Model # 625.388250

I use the pebble salt( about the size/diameter of a penny or nickel. There are salt level indicators inside the tank, 1-thru 8. The salt does not move below level 6, and is all hardened together. You can still see the individual shapes of the pebble/pcs, but they are stuck together, hard as a rock. I have heard that there is a phone # that you can call (Sears) and they will walk you through it. but since I didn't have any luck with them previously with my dishwasher , & paid for a housecall, I thought I would try this website 1st, as it did sucessfully help me to get my dishwasher working again.

Where can I buy an electronic foot pedal or a rheostat foot pedal ?

I have a Kenmore Stylist 86....a 1959 sewing machine. The only thing wrong with it is that it needs another foot pedal. There is a man here in town where I live but he doesn't guarantee to have one to work as he does not deal with Kenmore. Any info you have would be fabulous!...

Kenmore model 625.388250?

My water softener is full of water and spilling out the escape hose. I closed the intake valve and pulled the A/C plug and it still keeps filling the tank. The owners manual does not give me any information of how to fix this problem. Can you give me an idea on how to fix it? thank you Joh...
