The pump will not turn on. I think it may have something to do with the switch, which appears to be air operated. Can you help me?

If you can see the pump motor, there is probbly a reset button on the motor which sometimes kicks out if you run it without water.

My compressor keeps pumping but air pressure in tank doesn't go up what is the problem

I have a compressor and the last time I used it, it was doing something similar. I haven't tried anything on it yet but I think there are two possibilities (Either it needs oil ) (It may need some air pumped into the tank to get it to build up pressure.) Either those two or the pressure switch is bad. The switches usually are very tough so not likely that but as a last resort I would try a new one. I do think lack of pressure would likely be the oil is low. I think the oil makes a seal around the piston and that causes it to build pressure. If it will still blow up a tire there should be enough pressure to turn the relay switch off. Mine will still blow up a tire so not sure if it is a pressure problem. May need pressure put into the valve on the tank and if there is one I will try that today.

Is the switch at the end of the air line turning on? Check the air line cracked/plugged, and the switch for proper operation.

It may be helpful for you to get some idea of the mechanism involved in operating the shock absorbers in your vehicle. Refer this information. It may then be a matter of finding the parts involved if replacement is required

I have a 1998 dodge 3500 van. When you turn the air conditioning on it won't let the air come through the vents like it is blocked. It works fine when you have it on fan and defrost

there is vacuum lines that operates door panels in the dash to switch from a/c to defrost i think something came loose or you had something fall throgh vents to stop the door from operating need to take the glove box panel out and watch the lever as you switch from defrost to a/c.

How can I tell if a WM48 Zoeller Sump pump is operational. It appears the water level is over the float.

Depending on the sensitivity of the float switch you may find that the float must be completely upside-down for the pump to turn on. The easiest way to check if the pump works is grab the float by hand and hold it in the inverted position - if your pump kicks in and starts pumping you know the pump itself works and you may want to adjust your float (I use tie-straps around the handle and around the float cord to artificially shorten the float). If your pump does not pump water when the float is inverted try shaking the float to see if the inner switch is stuck. Hope that helps.

WATERMILL SHOWER PUMP - On turning on the shower

This sounds like a problem with the flow switch(es) that control the operation of the pump motor.

When the pressure decreases I assume that the pump has switched itself off - check this before going any further, but I will assume that this is the case. (If the pump is still running when the pressure decreases then you have a really strange problem and I would need to think again).

The pump motor is controlled by flow switches on the outlet side of the pump - when the shower valve is opened the flow of water activates a switch that supplies power to the pump motor. There will be one flow switch on the hot outlet from the pump and another on the cold outlet.

I assume that one or both of the flow switches is not operating correctly. This can be either a fault with the switch(es) or insufficient water pressure on the inlet side. Has anything changed that might have reduced the pressure on the inlet side of the pump? Have you moved the water tank that supplies the pump? (cold water storage tank)

If there is adequate pressure on the inlet then one or both of the flow switches is not working correctly. To further diagnose the problem try turning the shower valve to cold water only and test the operation of the pump, then turn it to hottest and test again.

If the pump operates correctly on cold only or hot only then the associated flow switch is OK, and the other one is faulty.

Replacing a flow switch is not difficult if you are reasonably handy, and I am happy to provide further help if you need it.

Is there a way to check if air shocks are operating correctley before I purchase mark 8

you mean air suspension. yes, there is a switch in the trunk i think on left side. turn it off , then open hood and on the air pump for suspension there is a regular air valve like on tires. Release the air from system, car will lower down.. then turn switch in trunk back on and start engine so the pump wont kill battery , and watch the car rise again to normal height.

I have a 16 year old Aker whirlpool tub. Recently the tub turned on with no one near it. I had to turn the breaker off so the motor did not burn out. It appears the air switch has failed. How do you...

If it is an air switch, the switch itself is located on the pump.Locate the air line that goes from the button and follow it to the pump. It is possible to replace the switch with the pump in a accessible location. If not remove the pump and replace the switch on a work bench. The switch is inside the black or blue box located on the pump motor. Hope this helps.
