I would be more inclined to think that pump impeller has something caught in it. There should be a flex coupling of some kind that you can lossen to remove pump from basin. Unplug electrical cord and pull pump out. There should be a removeable slotted cover on the bottom that you can take off to clean impeller. Remove all debris from bottom, wash out with water. Depending on what type of switch you have on your pump you can make sure all water is out of pump and plug in momentarily,rise float to turn it on and see if it runs. If it has apressure switch you won't be able to do this. If you can make it try to run make sure you only try for a few seconds. These pumps are not designed to be run dry. If it runs put bottom cover back on and reinstall pump. If it doesn"t you probably will need a new pump. Thank. Hope this helps.

1991 s-10 pu//////electric fuel pump not working,is it a blown fuse


i'll try to help. have you checked the fuses and the relays under the hood in the black fuse box? with the key in the on position, can you hear the fuel pump humming? you may have to turn the key on and off several times 15 seconds at a time. if all fuses are good and the fuel pump relays good, try with key on, tap on bottom of gas tank to see if the pump will start to hum. if pump does start to hum, you'll need to replace that pump soon. you may get a couple of starts out of it, but usually not very many. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Hello. Your shower pump is sensitive to the other taps because your installer failed to install check valves in the system to prevent the backflow of water whenever another tap was turned on. J.
