It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How does a home well water system work?


Deep well.
Pressure valve located on front of above-ground-storage-tank will turn pump on-off depending on amount of water pressure inside tank.
When water is consumed inside home, the pressure valve responds to the lower pressure and closes electrical contacts... sending electricity to water well pump located deep underground.
The pump turns on and lifts water through a pipe into the above ground storage tank.
When the tank is full of water, the pressure valve senses the higher pressure and turns off electricity going to pump
Pump shuts off.
There is a one-way check valve on the water line going down to pump, and this keeps water from flowing back down into well.
The above ground tank maintains water pressure for the house.
When pressure is reduced by taking a shower, the pressure valve turns pump on again, and cycle repeats.

My new water pump i installed just like the instructions said won't hold pressure, I have a new foot valve and a flow check valve in the suction line from the well?


Just to confirm that the pressure tank was pre-charged with the tank emptied of water. If water comes out of the air valve, then the bladder is ruptured, and the tank needs to be replaced.

What is bladder tank?


A bladder tank is a water storage tank that is used to allow a pump to compress air inside the tank. Water can't be compressed so the tank is built with a bladder or balloon inside that allows the pump to be able to build up pressure inside the tank. This allows a pressure switch to turn on or turn off the pump. Typically if the bladder goes bad inside the tank the pump will cycle rather frequesntly.

I have a 55 gallon tank. What size water pump do I need?


A standard 55 gallontank needs at least 550gph of water circulation. The minimum acceptable water flow for afreshwater aquarium is 10x the tank volume per hour. For saltwater aquariums without corals, thereshould also be a 10-15x tank volume for circulation. As long as the pump you get follows theseguidelines, the itself won't matter.

Pump clicks on and off every time you use water or flush tiolet


This is and indication of a water logged pressure tank. Turn pump off, drain all water from tank, add air to well tank, 2psi below cut in pressure IE: 30-50 switch the air charge should be 28psi in well tank. Make sure water valve after tank is turned off before adding air, so it is not lost before turning pump back on. If problem persists replace well tank.

I have a Zoeller Water Ridd'r II Model 48 Sump pump. The pump comes on okay, but will nit shutoff. The float is not impededd, it's just laying on the bottom of the sump. Is this a defective...


If I undrestand your description, when the resevoir is empty, the float lays on the bottom of the resevoir but, the pump doesn't shut off, after water is pumped out? You have to look at this as opposite of a toilet tank filling with water. In a toilet, the water rises and the foat turn the water flow off. In a sump the water will rise, and the float will turnthe pump on until the resevoir is empty, then it will open the system and turn off the pump. If the float doesn't rise, the resevoir will overflow and the pump won't come on at all. If the float rises and the pump comes on but, the float does "not" drop, the pump will continue to run after the resevoir is empty.

This is Zoellers link. I don't see your pump but they do have a support link. If the float rises and falls with the height of the water, turns pump on, then drops "all the way" and pump doesn't turn off, the switch is bad not the float. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the float dropping to it's full down position.

When turned on ,pump runs for about 8 to 10 sec. stops,then starts back up then repeats as long as water is on


You have a waterlogged pressure tank. To fix this problem, follow these steps:

1. Determine your cut in pressure by looking at the pressure gauge and seeing when the pump turns on.

2. Shut off the electric to the pump and shut off the main water to the house.

3. Drain the water from the pressure tank completely. You can do this by opening the drain at the bottom the the pressure tank.

4. With a air compressor and tire gauge (don't use pressure gauge on the pump) put enough pressure in the tank so that it is two psi less than the cut in pressure. So if your pump turns on at 30 psi, put 28 psi in the tank.

5. Turn the power back on to the pump and let it run till it shuts off.

6. Turn the water back on to the house.

7. This should fix the problem. If it does not, the bladder in the pressure tank is bad and the whole tank needs to be replaced.

This is a general fix without knowing your make and model of pump or pressure tank. This is a universal way of fixing this problem.

Shallow well pump cycles on and off quickly? Stays on while water is running than shuts off when valves are closed.


Do you have a tank in this system? If you don't, this is the way the well pump will operate.

If there is a tank, it will have a pressure switch on it which controls the pump -- it'll cut the pump on when the tank pressure drops to 28 psi, and cuts the pump off at 40 psi.

If you have a tank, the pump behaving as you describe indicates there is something wrong -- need more info.

Stiebel Mini 4 won?t activate using 40l/min pump


You have to make sure that the pump is flowing enough water to activate the Stiebel. The tankless unit has a activation rate of a certain amount of water to turn it on.
