Water is supposed to flow slightly through the pump without it running so disassemble the wand and cut on water supply, see if water comes out of the wand on-off handle. The motor does not have to be running. Got water flowing? YES - clean out the wand filter or nozzle hole. A partially clogged filter will prevent hi pressure activation.
NO? disassemble pump and clean out chamber paths.

Also - A pressure pump is not suppose to be running and not used for over ten minutes. The pump can overheat from lack of water passing through and damage the pump seals. A clogged wand is the same as not using it while you try to figger out why it doesn't have high pressure. I found my clogged filter and stopped up nozzle but haven't gotten my real high pressure back yet. Sears doesn't sell the valve seal kit but someone does.

Sounds like a well pump with a leaky foot valve. I beleive you are correct in that it air lockes then when you shut it off the water flows back eliminiting the air lock.

My 2 year old frigidaire dishwasher is not filling up with water, goes through cycle but no water is coming out, valve is open all the way?


If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

What the difference between pressure set-up and free flow set-up water pumps?


Certain in-line water pumps utilize different impellers depending if the pump is designed for a pressurized or a free flow application. If a pump is to be used on a free flow set-up, a smaller motor with a free flow impeller can be used to push as much water as the larger motor with an impeller that handles pressurized systems.

Have an Onga JJ400 jet water pump several years old, pump is working but delivering poor water flow


Is the pump building pressure and shutting off? If the pump keeps running but not building pressure than there is most likely a problem with the well (low volume). Also check for a water logged bladder tank.

If you can meet your needs with the pressure you have now, reduce the pressure cut off switch pressure until it shuts off. Your housing is probabbly sealed to the motor. Try shocking it with a rubber mallet to break the seal.

Pump worked yesterday but would not shut off. I left pressure in system over night, today pressure gone, when I turn pump on, the motor runs, but no pressure or water pumped.


1.Turn off the power going to the pump.
2.Drain all the water inside the pressure tank.
3.Open the priming port plug of the pump, and fill it
full with water.
4. Put the priming port plug back in place. Close the
flow control valve and start the pump.
5. Slowly open the flow control valve to 1/8 to 1/4
open and see the flow stabilize at 20 psi of the
pressure gauge.
Hope this will help.

No pressure on gauge,pool is filtering but on off,cell tube fills up with water then emptys then fills up again


you aren't getting a good suction. Try placing your hand over the jet or jets going into your pool as to build up the pressure once again. Gradually allow the water to flow out of the jet(s) as you feel the pressure building up again. As of current you pump is just allowing the water to flow right through instead of sucking with force and pumping with force. No issues with filter or pump. Just need to restore proper suction/pumping

What does code 90 mean


code 90 means low water flow

start by cleaning your filter with high pressure from garden hose
check all tubes for blockage
also check where the inlet tube connects to your pump, sometimes hair builds up there and blocks other debris
also check your electro cell for build up
also check your flow sensor this can be removed easily
