Re: Bilge Pump stopped working completely
If pump does not come on when switched to manual, start by applying power to the pump directly to see if the pump is burned out. If the pump runs, you'll need to do some detective work tracing faulty wires, crimps, connections, switches. Etc.
Once you have the pump working on manual you'll need to check the float switch. And then the wiring to and from the float switch.
Takes some time and focus is all. If you are the DIY type get in there with a label maker, a DVM and a beer.
