    I already have the manual solution - I am looking for assistance with locating the exact location of the positioning button on the housing pump.

Press the positioning button located on pump housing and rotate discharge port to desired position.

Note: the Discharge port will only rotate 1/4 turn.

    That is exactly what the manual says ... however where is the positioning button on the pump housing? For example - where is it in relationship to the discharge tube, left side, right side, etc...

Which connection is the suction and which is the discharge for this model pump?

Inlet/Suction is always the port that is Horizontal.
Discharge/Pressure is normally Vertical.
So to answer your question specifically about this pump: The answers are above.
For others that may have a pump body that rotates, the discharge/outlet/pressure can/may also by choice, be horizontally exiting. But the horizontal port for discharge will now be "Perpindicular" to the motor vs. "Parallel" with the motor.
A "Horizontal" port Parallel with the motor will always be "Suction/Inlet"

How to rotate a design that is to big vertical, will fit hortiz. on a singer future 6000.

Isn't your fabirc big enough to hoop it vertically, but stitch it
Do you own a Singer PSW? Easy to edit with this program.
Or you should be able to do in your Singer XL-6000 conversion tools.
Failing that you can rotate a design in the machine itself, simply on the machine by touching the hoop tab on the touch screen (second icon from the right) and then selecting the rotate icon (second from the top) then rotate the design?
Although I have known some designs to not rotate - due to the needle positions during the sewing and jumping process.
Hope some of these ideas are helpful to you.

I am installing a 1592SP Power-Flo Matrix pump and I cannot seem to press the positioning button (it does not depress) to rotate the discharge port. I have taken off the strainer housing, but no matter...

I just went out and did mine. My button didn't depress at all at first. While trying to push the button in, jiggle the discharge both ways; the button will move in and the housing rotates very easily.

By mistake, when removing the water to replace it, I turned the cap and it came off. realizing my mistake I replaced the cap, pressed the button and tried to pull it straight out per the instructions on...

the directions state To change the filter you would 1.) remove the cartridge cap (counterclockwise to a vertical position) and pull the filter out through the base grille. Directions state there will be water in the cartridge so some spilling may occur. 2.) remove the cartridge cap by sliding it off the end of the old cartridge. The cap will slide to the left or right. Do not discard the cap. 3.) Take the new cartridge out of the package and remove protective cover from O-rings. 4.) Slide the cartridge cap onto the new cartridge. 5.) With cartridge cap in the vertical position, push the new filter cartridge into the base grille until it stops. Rotate the cartridge cap clockwise to a horizontal position. Its the first part of doing this thats a real pain but after you get by the first instructions the replacement becomes easy if you have any further questions message me back Thanks again Rick

Vertical positioning setting is frozen

lets see what i can do
sometimes under the screen edge either side or bottom they have the menu buttons these have become hard to find but there on your screen on one of the buttons the select should be de gaus (spell check) this sends a powerful power signal to monitor to reset its self some times its scary to watch but when it does that it should release the buttons parameters back to working state then use the buttons to set your parameters

the other thing is there is something stuck or broke in the button which was pushed a little harder then most
if this is the case
and you dont want to mess with monitor then take to computer tech. they will tear down and replace button backing sometimes the button backing points break off or disalign do to tomuch preasure on the button
i hope this helped you
