Bought a new shurflo pump for our motorhome it is sucking in air and does not stop running

fix the air leak or fill the water tank under the motor home
once you have no air in the plumbing , it will stop running unless there is a faulty pressure switch as well

Water not pumping from the tank

If the pump is primed, water will come out of the tank when the pump is running. It make take a little time for the tank to fill, but you should hear the pump making some noise. An un-primed pump just makes a motor noise, not very loud.

Krups XP6010 won't pump water after running dry

The pump should not refuse to pump just because it was momentarily run dry. We do not have that model here in NZ so I'm not familiar with it. Is there a way to apply some air pressure (lungs) to the top of the tank and operate it, or maybe you can find some plastic tubing (2 feet of garden hose maybe) that fits the tank socket, full the hose with water and pressurise the top of the hose while operating the pump. If that doesn't work you are doomed to have to open it up and look inside.

I can't find your particular model pump but, in the picture shown, if thats yours, it looks like two pumps in one. Anyway, I'm pretty familiar with Shurflo pumps and they are diaphram pumps and, the antifreeze may have taken out the diaphams. I'd like to see a bigger picture of it.
The pump head should look something like this. I'd replace the diaphram assy.

We have just installed a new shurflo pump in our trailer. The pump is working but we cannot get it to stop and there seems to be air in the line. We have tried leaving the taps open but does not seem to...

Water water everywhere.... The pump you installed has no way of knowing when to stop. Shurflo also has a pump with a pressure switch that senses pressure drop to turn on and back pressure to stop. I'm sure the dealer that sold you the one you now have will have the proper modell for your application.. Good luck and be sure to put a filter in the line coming from the fresh water tank. You should be all set with this recommendation._Ned_

I have a Snyder Industries sprayer for and ATV with a Shurflo Diaphram Pump 1.4gpm, 12V 7A 60 PSI. Seems to run ok, when first spraying it flows well then turns to a trickle or drip....I have disconnedted...

There is a filter screen on the pickup tube in the tank (or there should be) if there is a lot of debris in the tank it will slowly start to plug up the screen and reduce the liquid intake for the pump. If that is not the case then take the spray nasals off and clear the debris from them. Hope this helps you.

Motor on reverse osmosis runs constantly

If this is a booster pump, many booster pumps like Shurflo have an adjustment at the top (allen screw) to back off on the pump pressure, turn to left to back off on pressure. If it never shuts off this can be an indication of a bad membrane, capillary tube, flow restrictor or automatic shutoff, causing all the water to run to drain. If you have low quantities of water, but pump always runs, this could part of the problem. Also high TDS (total dissolved solids) will cause the pump to work more. The higher the TDS 500+ppm the harder it is to produce quality water. With high TDS it's almost like taking muddy water, running it through filters and getting drinkable water. So the RO and pump have to work much harder to produce any quantity and quality of water.
