Pump doesn't turn off and it doesn't pump water either. I don't know what to do!

I have a 2010 Flying Cloud and my pump won't shut up when turn on and this started after taking a shower and emptied the tank. Usually when I fill it up it fix the problem but no this time! :-/

I found the pump under my closet but I don't know what to do as I have 0- ability for mechanic.

I also turned on my focet and the shower but still doesn't want turn off. The water coming out of the sink is very weak too.

Hope there is a solution for that, anybody had the same problem? I hope it's easy to fix...

You're likely airlocked.

Fill tank completely with water and run sink and shower faucets, both hot and cold.

This will likely resolve the problem.

If not, one possible cause is an air leak in the pump suction line... there may be a strainer between the water tank and your pump; check if this is plugge or leaking.

Yes it was an Airlock.

Since that filling it up didn't work this time i tough of emptying it a bit the water tank with the little faucet underneath the trailer.
I shot off the city water so there is no confusion in between and turned on the pump and the faucet again and it fix it self! youpi!

My water pump just failed to work today. I've got a whole tank of white water I wanted to shower in because I'm at a campground where the iron content is too high. So I turned on the pump and NADA, Zip, zilch. Worked fine the last time I used it. All the big breakers are working. Does this pump run off of a blade fuse. It's a 25 Eddie Bauer 2012 and I'm sure I'm the first person to use this pump.

Any help appreciated.

Paula

Paula, it is 12volt. I am sure you have some kind of fuse. Could be a "breaker" tho. It's like a fuse. Open your 12v breaker panel. There should be a black tab on the breakers. You press it back in.

Let us know is if it helps.

OK, I located the fuse and it was in tightly. Pushed in all of the 12 volt stuff just to make sure. Turned on the water pump and thought I heard something... then turned off the a/c and sure enough the pump was running - no faucets open, and I'd run the tank pretty dry last time I used it. Tonight I'll turn off the city water, open the white water intake and all the faucets and try again.

If that doesn't work, I'll start to look for clogged filters, etc.

Sounds like you need to prime the pump as it appears to have air on the intake side.
Try opening all of the faucets and see if it will prime. If not, shut the pump off, disconnect the discharge line at the pump. Turn the pump on. If water squirts out, shut the pump off and reconnect the discharge line.
Are you sure you don't have a drain valve open and you are pumping the water outside?

I'm on a concrete pad, If the drain line were open I'd know it.

I'll try to prime it by opening all the faucets tonight. Then I get my head inside the tiny closet and work on the pump itself. If you don't hear from me tomorrow, send help - I'm stuck!

OK it won't prime itself. I haven't had time to work on it, but plan to do it tomorrow.

Are you sure you have water at the intake of the pump?
Have you switch from city water to house water? There may be valves involved with the change over.
Is there a strainer in the line going to the intake of the pump? It may be plugged.
There may be an obstruction in the outlet of the FW tank. Try blowing it out with low pressure (40 psi or less) air.
