How to fix a household rainwater pump?

Q =20l/min HZ = 50 When I turn on a household tap the Automatic Pump Control "failure" light comes on. No water is delivered. If I turn power off and rotate motor fan blade then turn power on... pump works. Also noticed that house lights dim when turn tap on at start. Thanks for advice.

SOURCE: pump humms but won't pump water out

It sounds like the pump motor or the impeller may be damaged. The "F02" error code is usually attributed to a pump failure or clog somewhere in the drain system. If you have made sure that the drain lines and pump reservoir are clean, and the pump still does not run properly, I would replace it. The first link explains the "F02" error and how to check the pump.

This second link explains how to replace the drain pump:

A replacement pump can be found at Just type in your model number and the pump can be found under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading as item number 10 (part #8181684). This is a simple repair. Just read through the instructions thoroughly before starting any repairs. If you need further assistance, please let me know. If you do not wish to purchase parts on line, use the part number provided and take to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this is helpful to you.

I had the same problem, it turned out to be the "U-Joint", which was a fairly easy repair. The part comes as a kit, (It is probably very common), the cost I got from Sears was $112. With tax and a $44 overnight delivery charge, my total was $170. And while I had it apart, I also cleaned all the gunk out.

probably better change the pump if you feel any up and down slack in the impellor. you may have an ingress of water through the seal.

Could a po178 code cause a repeated fuel pump failure on a 2003 chevy tahoe?

From reading the circuit description from the factory service info . I would say no .
Alcohol content and fuel temperature information is supplied to the powertrain control module (PCM) from the fuel composition sensor (FCS). The FCS has an ignition 1 circuit, a signal circuit, and a ground circuit. The FCS uses a microprocessor inside the sensor to measure the ethanol percentage and fuel temperature, and changes output signals accordingly. The signal circuit carries both the ethanol percentage, and the fuel temperature within the same signal. The signal is both variable frequency and variable pulse width. The frequency signal indicates the ethanol percentage, and the pulse width indicates fuel temperature. The PCM provides an internal pull up to 5 volts on the signal circuit, and the FCS pulls the 5 volts to ground in pulses. The normal range of operating frequency is between 50-150 Hz. The normal pulse width ranges between 1-5 milliseconds. If the PCM detects a signal less than 45 Hz DTC P0178 will set.

How often have you have to replace the pump and how many times ? Just off the top of my head , without test the fuel pump pressure and doing some testing on the electrical circuit , i'd say you have a resistance problem . Something making the pump work harded then it should . Plus how full do you keep your fuel tank ? If you let it get below a 1/4 of a tank regularly ,this could cause premature failure. Also it would be a good idea to do amp draw testing ! Fuel Pump Current Draw

Reaction: Cycle stops, drain pump drains out,failure indication.


F5 or 5 times flashing.
SPM blocked (MPH motor unit)

Failure condition:
- This failure is only indicated during the active test program
- The electronic detects an irregular deviation of the motor current consumption.

Spray pump blocked = check pump housing
Short circuit in motor or wiring = check motor values

Reaction: After 5 attempts to reactivate the spray pump motor the cycle stops, drain pump drains out, failure indication.

Big rainwater tank ran dry and so electric Onga pump that normally pumps water from big tank to little overhead tank kept failing. Have since refilled big rainwater tank, but pump keeps failing. Have

Release AIR lock. Air has got trapped in the pump hence it cannot create necessary level of suction. The way normally you do this by filling the water path of the pump with water and get the air released.

Grunfos ch2-50

Can you describe the pump you have? Is it used for household water or a sprinkler system? Typically a household pump will have a storage tank and a pressure switch. 90% of the problems with a pump not turning off is due to the pressure switch.

How do I program the H5CX ASN timer to turn on 5 mins and off 25 mins in an endless cycle. I don't understand the term Output Mode so from that point the instructions become meaningless.


I believe you have 230Volt 50 Hz electric power.
Omron is rated 50-60 hz
US timers are rated 60 Hz.
Maximum load on Omron timer is 5amp at 230 volt
Timer should be connected to 2-pole contactor (relay) instead of directly connected to pump.

Does Amazon sell percentage cycle timer in your country?
A cycle timer makes one full revolution each hour, or 4-hours, or 12 hours. Then percentage is set for 8% for 1 hour cycle.
Contact Intermatic and ask if they have 50 cycle percentage cycle timer, or ordinary cycle timer in 50 Hz.
