Water pump runs constantly.

Post by MickP on Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:45 pm

Hello all,
I am looking for guidance from all you experienced hands.

The water pump on our 1997 AS Harmony had been working fine but now whenever I turn the 12v on it runs constantly. No water comes from the taps, loo etc. I have tried knocking the tank in case it is an air lock but no joy. I have even tried sucking the water through! Still no joy.
Can anyone please suggest what to do next.
Thank you

It helps us understand how to offer advice to you if you introduce yourself and describe your motorhoming/camping experience at the link above.

First question, is your fresh water tank full?

Ok, then check that any water heater drain plug/valve are closed and, if fitted, the vent heater valve is closed.

Oh. How embarrassing!

First rule for beginners:- never believe what the water tank gauge says.
I will fill out more details as time permits

Thank you again.
