I ran my Jabsco pump 18950 dry and now it won't run at all.

Customer Question

I ran my Jabsco pump 18950 dry and now it won't run at all. The book says the run dry protection feature shuts it off. How do you restart it? Thanks Bob

Hello. My name is***** will be assisting you. On the back of the pump there is a slot in the shaft turn the shaft this should start the pump again if it is stuck. If it doesn't work we need to make sure the pump is getting voltage. You will have to remove the cap. Did that work?

Are you saying I have to remove" the" cap in order to stick a screw driver in the slot then turn it clockwise?
Expert:  Tan replied 2 years ago.
Correct. It's just a rubber cap/plastic cap.

This pump is mounted in a tuff place to work on........what does it take to remove the cap?
Expert:  Tan replied 2 years ago.
It will just pop off with your fingers or the screwdriver. You might check for voltage to the pump first.

OK I'll give it a Go in the morning and let you know. Thanks. Bob

Is there a in line fuse located at the pump, do you know?
Expert:  Tan replied 2 years ago.
It's possible but usually the fuse is in the fuse panel for the switches. It depends on the boat manufacturer. The fuse is usually in a convenient place.
