Question about Little Giant APCP-1700 Swimming Pool Cover Pump Automatic

2 Answers

How do I "bleed" air from pump ? Motor runs, but it does not pump water.

I put it in water, let it run for 1 minute, then unplug for 1 minute, alternating this five times, still nothing happens.

Check the suction side and see if it is clear to allow water flow.

This style is a pain in the neck...
Try shaking it roughly, while submerged?
while on and off!
Ensure no blockage at inlet.

How do you bleed a diesel pump jeep Cherokee turbo diesel 3.1 5 cylinder 2001


we dont have this engine here, USA.
but i have the WG jeep book,

FUEL INJECTION PUMP BLEEDING
(1) If the fuel injection pump has been replaced,
air should be bled at the overflow valve before
attempting to start engine.
(a) Loosen the overflow valve (Fig. 18) at the
rear of the injection pump.
(b) Place a towel below the valve.
WARNING: WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE TO
BLEED AIR FROM THE INJECTION PUMP, THE
ENGINE MAY START. PLACE THE TRANSMISSION
IN NEUTRAL OR PARK AND SET PARKING BRAKE
BEFORE ENGAGING THE STARTER MOTOR.
CAUTION: Do not engage the starter motor for
more than 30 seconds at a time. Allow 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(2) Crank the engine for 30 seconds at a time to
allow air trapped in the injection pump to vent out
the fuel injector drain tubes. Continue this procedure
until the engine starts. Observe the previous WARNING
and CAUTION.
(3) Tighten overflow valve.
HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL LINE BLEEDING
WARNING: THE INJECTION PUMP SUPPLIES HIGH-
-PRESSURE FUEL OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000 KPA
(6,526 PSI) TO EACH INDIVIDUAL INJECTOR
THROUGH THE HIGH-PRESSURE LINES. FUEL
UNDER THIS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE CAN PENETRATE
THE SKIN AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE
CLOTHING AND AVOID CONTACT WITH
FUEL SPRAY WHEN BLEEDING HIGH-PRESSURE
FUEL LINES.
WARNING: DO NOT BLEED AIR FROM THE FUEL

Overheating 2002 Taurus 3.0 single. We have flushed system, change thermostat and coolant. Heats up in slow traffic or stop, runs okay at speeds over 40. could the water pump be going bad?


Did you make sure that all of the air is bled out of the system? Due to changes in cooling system design in recent years, it is very important to get all of the air out of the system. Some engines have "air bleeds" located at various points on the engine. The first place to look is near the upper radiator hose where it attaches to the motor. If you find these air bleeds, then the procedure is as follows :
1. Make sure that the system is completely full of coolant.
2. Start the engine and allow it to run until the upper radiator hose becomes warm.
3. Loosen the set screw and slowly open the bleed valve until coolant is visible.
4. Tighten the valve and set screw. Repeat this procedure on remaining valves.
Usually when water pumps fail, it is because the fluid seal has failed. This usually causes the pump to leak, leaving a puddle of coolant on the ground. If this is not occurring, then check to see if the coolant fan is working. Run the vehicle until it starts to overheat. You should be able to hear the coolant fan motor start running. If the above procedure does not solve the problem and the coolant fan appears to be running then post a comment and I can get into more advanced diagnostic procedures. Thank you for trying Fixya.com.

Code "F02" sometimes pumps out water sometimes


F-2 Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are turned off
and "F/02" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the
display.
NOTE: After four minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then four
minutes later the "F/02" error code will be displayed.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and
make sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

Our pump was running dry for at least a day because a leak dropped the water level below the skimmer. it runs on 220 and sounds like it's running but no water movement in or out. i need a new pump, right?


not necessarily if running may need to be bleed[air bound and need to let out air ]or may need to be primed if there is a bleeder on pump housing un- screw to release air until water runs out --- if still no water pumping may have damaged the impeller depending on ur pump may have to only replace impeller or pump housing

Hi We had the hose detach from BMW 5 series 1998 car and after putting it back, the car only runs a few hundred yards before registering as overheating again.We did top up the water with de-ionised water.


did the hose blow off and you put it back on? is the engine still losing water?
it no water loss remove water pump and check impeller for damage

Karcher 320H i have the same pressure coming out as i put in from the tap, the motor is running ok


You have an air lock in the pump and or piping.
  • Open all drain cocks and remove the spray hose
  • Connect the inlet water hose and turn it on slow
  • allow water to run from all open ports for 2 minutes or so
  • leave the water running - close drains start motor
  • Shut down reconnect spray hose restart
  • You should now be smiling

I need to bleed air from my radiator/engine block cooling system after installing a new water pump and other items.How do I locate the vent port or bleed valve on the block or wherever?Where is it located?


It is usually located on either the thermostat housing or on the highest point in the cooling system top radiator hose housing going into the engine. Run the motor for approx. ten minutes then turn heater on high unscrew bleeder 3/4 of a turn and then turn back in when coolant squirts out. Repeat after 5 more minutes of run time.

1990 Subaru Liberty Overheats


Hi,

I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.

Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.

This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.
