Shurflo pump failure

Hi all,
We had a new pump fitted last year. Just had a month in Spain with no problems. Now back home and it doesnít work. All fuses ok. Tried turning the screw for pressure sensor. Still nothing. Any ideas??🤔🤔

Disconnect the supply to the pump and run another feed directly from the battery. That will tell you if the pump is OK or dead. If the pump is OK Try bypassing the pressure sensor to see if thatís whatís at fault,

Like most faults itís a process of elimination carried out in a logical sequence.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Thank you Andy. That seems complicated for me so Iíve passed the info to f-in-law. Since posting Iíve spoken to the company who fitted it and they are coming out in 2 weeks.

Shurflo pump 'hunting'

Anyone got any idea why my Shurflo water pump (Trail King 10) is 'hunting' when all taps are closed?
It's coming on every 30 seconds for about 1-2 seconds at a time.
When we turn off the valve between the water tank and the pump, the 'hunting' stops. Turn it back on and it begins again.
We recently repaired a leaking sink tap.

Other than that nothings changed to create the 'hunting'.

When you repaired the leaking tap you probably moved the pipes this as caused a leak at the next joint

If the hunting stops when you turn off the valve from the tank, it means that the pressurised part of the system is leaking back through the pump.

It may be that you can dismantle the pump and clean the valves, or they could be worn meaning replacement is necessary.

Do you have a filter on the inlet side of the pump? If not, it may be very small particles have prevented the valves sealing properly and it will simply mean a clean.

I'm daft and proud of it.
