Is the inlet strainer clean? If so, it can be the unloader. The unloader my also be called spill valve.
# ***** and 8 make up the spill valve.
The parts are expensive,but cleaning the valve may be all that is required. If it does not work after cleaning, I would not recommend spending any money on it!
Just use a light grease, like vaseline. and auto supply carry an assortment of various size o'rings.
Yes, i see no problem with the grease in the pump section.
Take all the time you need! Thanks for reply.
We had 4 more inches today!
The nipple houses the check valve for the washer solution. As long as the nipple or hole is shut, it will not affect operation of the washer. I see no pictures attached. ?? The plunger you speak of does have to be able to push on the switch, or pump keeps pumping!
Use the paperclip icon above the typing bar for attaching photos.
If you send through email, the site gets the pictures. I have no access to your email address. I work from home as a contractor. Did you see what I said about the nipple and switch?
It does have to move to push and release the switch!
Can it move at all? Switch needs very little travel to turn motor on and off. Or just let it pump pressure, and shut if off manually
It will not hurt the pump, it is made to run continuously.
Thanks , please rate to close.
The inlet screen hasn't become restricted from trash?
I don't know, I thought we were on the right track. I can opt out and see if anyone else will answer. Sorry.
