What is A/F switch for?

Hi,

Many of the switches and indicators on the hood above the stove have worn off labels. One of the switches says "auto f????" and there's an indicator that says A/F when the switch is on. Anyone knw what this does? Of course I tried it anyway to see if anything happens but only saw a lit indicator come on.

Thanks <again> for any help.
Dave

I "think" it is the water tank autofill. When hooked to exterior water it allowed for the you to fill the onboard tank wihout disconnecting and filling through the exterior door. Only way to check is to hook up and do it.

This is just a guess, but this used to be an option on many models.

That could be it but I didn't hear any sound when I cycled the switch. It might be because there's still about 1/4 tank according to the LED meter. I'll try using up the rest of the fresh water and see if it fills. That might be a way to circumvent (no pun intended) the fill vent problem. Maybe the pressure might blow out the clog in the vent if there is one.

As I remember the auto fill was designed to fill from less than 80% to the 80% point on a tank. If you have city water hooked up and have less than 80 % it should work. It is a slow process so it could take a while to see a change in the tank monitor, Since it is an unknown I would NOT turn it on and leave. Sit down with a favorite beverage and if you have power watch some tv or read the paper. I would give it a 30 Min. test. The fact that the lettering is wore off tells me it did work and your PO used it to fill the tank with some regularity. Ths assumes that it is the auto fill
