SOURCE: We have an onga pump

I don't know this product specifically. I looked it up and it appears that when you are on mains water, the pump doesn't run at all; city water pressure is used and fully adequate.
However, when you are on the tank, the pump runs. All pumps have pressure switches associated with them in a system like this. The pressure switch is supposed to sense the shutoff pressure of the pump & system and stop the pump. Apparently this did work like this in the past. This means that something has changed in the system that lowered the pump shutoff pressure. In most systems you can locate the pressure switch and lower the setting to just below the shutoff pressure of the pump so when there is no water being used, the pump stops. If your Onga switch really has no user serviceable parts then it will have to be replaced. If it can be accessed by the user, lowering the setting slightly will stop the pump.
Sorry that I couldn't be more help.

SHE44 pump keeps trying to empty but there isn't any water


she44-pump-keeps-trying-empty-but-isnt-3dor230cw2fd2t5j4bvk0sa4-4-0.jpg

she44-pump-keeps-trying-empty-but-isnt-3dor230cw2fd2t5j4bvk0sa4-4-1.jpg Hello. First, when looking up info on your model, I came across this recall on the SHE44C unit. Check your model number and serial number to verify if your unit falls into the recall range. (fire hazard)
Next, study the schematic diagram for your unit--the drain pump is connected directly to the main board--the fact that it's running even with the door open suggests that the main board might have a stuck relay and will have to be replaced if that is the case. The part number is 444813. The drain motor (see close-up, pic 4, is designated M3) has one side wired to the board, the other side goes through the on/off switch to incoming power, (see pic 3, lower right corner). I hope this helps you!

I have a RUUD Heat Pump Model UPPB-024JAZ the outdoor pump stopped working last week. The reset button fixed the issue but whhy does it keep going off.


To start with, the tech charged you for an hours worth of service and only pushed the button. GET YOUR HOURS WORTH!
•The outdoor coil needs to be cleaned. Turn off power at the breaker and t-stat, clean the coil with water hose
•The outdoor fan motor may be slowing down or stopping due to motor bearings dry or weak run capacitor. Any noise/squealing from motor?
•Too much freon in the system.
•A restriction in the freon system.
•A improperly installed/mismatched system
•A (kynk) in the liquid line(3/8 copper)
•A stopped up or clogged filter dryer
•A dirty indoor coil that has an expansion valve(txv) will run too cold and the valve can close near "seated"
All of these, and more, can cause a HIGH PRESSURE SWITCH to open. When yours open, you have the red button to push which resets it(the switch). I have also found that the plenum(duct box that connects to your indoor unit at the discharge air) is supposed to be tapered to the air opening size of the blower outlet but that's hard to explain. If the plenum size is the same size of your indoor unit, width and depth in the upright position, the your plenum is not "tappered"(goes from one larger size to smaller size where connected to the I.d. unit). In that scenario, the high pressure switch opens during heat operation, not cool. I know, confusing. Try cleaning your o.d. coil first. And try to get an hour of work(or close) for an hour paid. And WORK SAFE!

Fisher and Paykel DW920 dishwasher pump wont stop


This means the flood circuit is triggered. There is a leak in the dishwasher causing water to collect in the motor chamber. The leak is usually through the door seals or broken hose. Disconnect mains electric and water connections and pull dishwasher out from under kitchen bench. Tilt it from side to side to get the water out from under the base. Wait a little for water to dry up. Reconnect mains power and turn on to see if pump stops running. As mentioned source of leak needs to be fixed.

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on


This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

My front end loader washer keeps saying e10 error


E10- Problems with water drain during washing
-Drain hose kinked, filter blocked, drain pump, water distributor, wiring , main PCB, pressure switches


Usually due to debris trapped in the drain pump (pebbles/coins/hairgrips etc) jamming it. Clean it all out including all pipes.

Blinking "Normal" button


PROBLEM: STOPPED RUNNING, WILL NOT START AND
CLEAN LED BLINKS 7 TIMES, THEN REPEATS
(WATER HEATING FAULT)
Control is programmed to stop
running and not allow any
further cycles if it detects a
water heating problem (no
temperature increase detected
in heated Main Wash on
3 consecutive cycles). Control
blinks the Clean LED 7 times
repeatedly and disables the
Start/Resume key until
cleared.
Running Diagnostics clears the
control and allows it to operate
again. The water heating problem
must be fixed or the control will
stop running again. See potential
causes below.
Heater circuit problem:
■ Open in heater.
■ Open connection or
component in heater circuit.
■ Faulty heater drive circuit on
control.
1. Check operation of heater in
Diagnostics cycle.
2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect
power.
3. Check resistance of heater and all
components and connections in the
water heating circuit or heat dry
circuit.
Wash pump not pumping water
past the heater efficiently.
See “WASH PUMP WILL NOT
PUMP”.
Door switch not making
contact consistently:
■ Faulty or sloppy door latch
assembly (which can be
aggravated by high door
closure force keeping strike
plate from fully seating).
■ Faulty door switch (high
resistance).
NOTE: Neutral switch on
plastic tub models is only in
series with motor and heater;
other loads are not affected.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect
power.
2. Measure resistance of door
switch contacts while checking
mechanical operation of latch
assembly. Confirm switches not
loose from assembly. Check strike
plate and door closure.
Lack of water to heat. See “WILL NOT FILL OR LOW
WATER”.
PROBLEM: WON’T START AND START/RESUME K
