Thanks, ***** ***** a lot about your technical skill sets and I will coach you the tricky trouble shooting if you have those skills.

If not tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will locate a well rated service provider for you.

So far it seems like the unit may just need cleaning and possibly replacement of its high pressure cut out switch.

I also need to know about how old system is.

We can go from there.
