Pump cuts off when water gets on motor

Why does the motor shut off when I'm cleaning the filter? Does it get wet? why doesn't it cut off when it rains?

Hot water pours out, cold water trickles. This just started happening this week. Is there a pump that forces the water to move or is the problem more likely the hose is plugged? or is there another...

The dual water inlet valve cold side is just stopped up with sediment. There is a screen filter in the water hose where it connects to the water supply. Cut the water off and unscrew the hose and look in the end of it for the cone shaped filter and clean it out. If that doesn't fix the problem you may have to clean or replace the inlet valve which is at the other end of the hose. The hot water doesn't usually have a problem because any sediment has a chance to settle out in the hot water tank.

Ryobi 7" wet saw. water

Direct the water on to the slate itself just ahead of the cut. When you spray the blade, centrifugal force causes the water to fly back off. Good luck!

After hydroplaning into a ditch My Bronco will not start....have a new motor and Transmission...acts as if starved for fuel

The problem could be that the air filter has become wet, or water has entered an electrical control device in the engine compartment, or a wire connector or a bulk-head connector might have become loose or dis-connected, the fuse to the ECM or fuel pump might have blown out, or the fuel shut-off inertia switch has been tripped.

Check the fuse to the fuel pump and the fuel shut-off or "inertia" switch, usually located behind the passenger side kick panel, or it will sometimes be located under the carpet just under the heater assembly, and check the red reset button on the top to see if it has been tripped, and push the red button all the way down to see if it will reset. Here is an image of the inertia switch or fuel cut-off switch, and a diagram that shows the location of the fuel cut-off switch under the passenger side carpet to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Ridgid Wet Tile saw water pump operates, however the water is not getting directed onto the blade. Hose partially plugged? How to clean nozzle?

You could clean the hose ... however, I think Id get to the hardware store and get a new piece.

Clean the end with a broom straw. You could trim a small piece of the hose off. Dont neglect to clean the filter on the pump. Slide the bottomoff the pump to expose the filter.

Motor starts and pump is not working. No water is flowing at all..what do i need to do?

Water is supposed to flow slightly through the pump without it running so disassemble the wand and cut on water supply, see if water comes out of the wand on-off handle. The motor does not have to be running. Got water flowing? YES - clean out the wand filter or nozzle hole. A partially clogged filter will prevent hi pressure activation.
NO? disassemble pump and clean out chamber paths.

Also - A pressure pump is not suppose to be running and not used for over ten minutes. The pump can overheat from lack of water passing through and damage the pump seals. A clogged wand is the same as not using it while you try to figger out why it doesn't have high pressure. I found my clogged filter and stopped up nozzle but haven't gotten my real high pressure back yet. Sears doesn't sell the valve seal kit but someone does.

Called Beckett at 1-800-OIL-BURN and explained the problem. They told me that the solenoid on the oil pump (Clean Cut) was the cause. I purchased a new pump for $50 at the local plumbing supply and installed it. Problem solved.
