OK F27 is an Overflow Condition error. If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds an Overflow condition will occur. The unit is likely trying to run the pump, but the pump is bad or something is blocking it. You would have to get to the pump on the unit to check the pump filter and pump to see if it is running or not. Can you do that?
