Is this a grinder pump with float switch? Or is it built into toilet sump?

First in either case if you can identify the capacitor, get one and replace it, they wear out over time anyway. If that fixes it, you are done the easy way.

Many of these type motors are throw aways, and finding the switch, let alone getting it apart and replacing it is more trouble than buying a new motor if available.

If you are plumbed in, and have no other choice but major construction to replace an up toilet, we can attempt a repair at our shop, if that is against the rules here, sorry, but I know what a complicated and near impossible fix this might be, sometimes the motors are riveted together, so if you need help and want to mail it to me for an estimate, we are happy to take a quick look.

Foodsaver Professional II locked up. 3 green lights blink on and off. Is the problem fixable?


I completely diassembeled my unit and could find nothing wrong. I reassembled it and had the same problem.

In my opnion the controlled board has failed; time to guy a new Foodsaver.

The small black rubber covered hole on the left side of the vacuum channel is not the reset button, it is the "lid closed" button.

The seal is not the issue as the lights start blinking right after you turn the unit on.

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.

I was sitting at my computer, with my space heater running, and suddenly both of them went out. Assuming that I had drawn too much power, I went to the fuse box to flip the switch back. Much to my...


The service to your basement needs to be upgraded if you are going to run the heater and other electrical units. I would guess that you have a 15 amp line and need to upgrade it up to at least a 20 amp and with a 12 gauge grounded line. In the short term you may be able to get by using a heater that draws fewer amps.
This definitely sounds like your need to consult an electrician.

Have to hold down toil handle for 4 secs to flush


Assuming we are talking about a standard flush toilet, it sounds like the internal flush actuator lever is hitting the top of the toilet on the inside. Remove the lid, hold the exterior handle. and carefully bend the lever down a little. Also make sure the lever hasn't slipped or is loose. Put the lid back on try again. Repeat until the toilet flushes with the lid on.

Hi there, we have a Saniflo system for a basement bathroom installed. The system stopped working so we checked the fuse box and it had tripped. We switched it back on and it worked fine for an hour. We had...


The saniflo system uses 2 stages stage one works sorta like a garbage disposal it breakes up waste, stage two is a high flo pump. one fo these has gone bad meaning the motor has burned up and shorted the sparking in the breaker pannel you refered to. As far as I know theese systems are self contained so you will have to have the unit repaced here is a link to the website so you can find a dealer or installer near you

Hope this helps.

What is a thermal overload switch? We had a storm and lost power in the house. The fuse did not blow but the next day the pump would not work. We changed the fuse as a precaution. I believe the thermal...


A TOC is a bi-metal strip in a canister , they are normally placed on the motor windings and in most cases are auto-resetting.

All they do is sense the temperature of the windings and when they exceed the limit of the TOC (Which is set by the motor maker) they flip the Bi-Metal strip and open circuit the supply.

Normally once the motor has cooled down the strip relaxes back to the original position and the supply is restored.

It is not a standard practice to have a push button re-set however on that will depend on the makers whims

What you may have is a Thermal Fuse which melts if the motor gets too hot and you then need to strip the unit down to both check it and if possible replace it.

By looking at the rating plate on the motor you may find the manufacturer and approach them for a data sheet

I have a Marathon Electric 1-1/2hp pool pump motor with a bad front bearing. Is the motor repairable and if so how do I get it apart?


First go to a motor repair shop or Neely Bearing shop and see if they can get a replacement battery, then post a picture of the motor and I will tell you how to repair or replace the bearing. I need to know the frame type, it's located on the motor tag and is it 110 or 220?

My washer flooded my basement causing my pilot light to go out on my hot water heater. Now it won't ignite.


I don't know how high the water got but if only the burner was covered it is probably just dirt. Try replacing the thermocouple this is usually less than $10. If the gas valve itself was wet REPLACE THE WATER HEATER!!!!!!! Never trust a gas valve that has been wet!!!!! It can seem to work just fine but get stuck in the open position defeating all safety measures.
