Check the voltage at the pump while its running. If the electric feed line is too long for the guage wire,
voltage drop will cause the motor to overheat and switch off.

What stops a fuel pump from working ,on a grand am se v-p6 3.4 motor ? I did'nt let it warm up the other mournin g , got down the road and it shut off driving.


A fuel pump does not need to be warmed up to work. They just wear out. If its the fuel pump that's the problem it will have to be replaced.

2009 Honda shadow starts bu will not stay running


You either have a fuel delivery problem or a thermal condition that kills the spark when igniter gets warm. Look at fuel pump, filters, etc. Also make sure that there are no exhaust restrictions that will shut down a motor.

Pool Pump Runs Intermittently (~10 seconds on, ~1 minute off)


Need more info. What is the voltage at the pump? What voltage is the pump wired for? Sounds like your pump is shutting down from heat thru a safety. If the voltage is wrong the pump will heat up very quickly and a thermal switch will cut out, it will then cool off and try again. Get the readings at the motor connections NOT the breaker.

Runs for about 15 secs and then stops


Let's getdown to basics. You have already done the most basic, and time saving task- that being setting and monitoring the pump pressure. What youmust troubleshoot:
  • is the problem fuel related? or
  • is the problem electronics related?
To find outyou must eliminate all fuel related possibilities because there is not much wayto successfully troubleshoot the electronics without access to DESA'sdiagnostic tool- HA1170.Keep inmind that the ignitor only stays red for 5 seconds- just long enough to startthe flame- the flame must perpetuate itself. If at ANYTIME there is a momentaryflameout condition (or off-color flame condition) the heater will shut down.The photocell's job is to monitor the flame condition. If the photocell doesnot see a flame that it likes, then it will shut the heater down.If thisheater was in my shop and the customer described the problem, the first thingthat I would do would be
  1. check the pump pressure- this is ALWAYS the first step.
  2. shine a flash light into the fuel tank- inspect for water droplets in the tank
  3. check for possibilities if a restricted fuel filter
  4. check for possibilities if a restricted nozzle
  5. with soapy water check for air leaks from the pump - all the way to the nozzle.
  6. If all of these check out then remove the top cover. If the heater runs fine with the top removed- replace the nozzle. Desa recommended annual replacement.
  7. The motor has an internal heat sensor. If the temp on the motor exceeds the safe level the sensor will shut the unit down. There is usually a pattern. The heater will run for an extended time, shut down, re-start, but the runtime is short. Let the unit cool and the pattern repeats itself. Feel the motor after shutdown. It should only be warm to touch. If hot, remove motor and bench test.. 2 possible causes- broken or grungy rotor or internal problems in the motor.
Troubleshooting tipsIf theproblem persists, then replace the control board & photocell.

My 95 tahoe starts but dont stay on. Fuel wont stay pumping from tbi. Just swapped a motor from 80's camaro. Was running real good in box chevy perfect. Now fuel wont stay flowing out of injectors. Already...


did you install the oil pressure switch origional to the tahoe? The tahoe uses a low oil pressure shutdown, instead of an inertia switch to shut off the fuel pump in the event of an accident. If the pressure circuit does not close within 3 seconds after the engine starts the fuel pump shuts off. This is in case the truck is on its side or upside down the pump will shut off.

Check oil level and oil pump. Oil pump light should turn off after a few seconds after start up. If light stays on for more then 3 second shut off and do not drive or run motor.
