Use caution when checking anything electrical. Pumps use 115 volts AC which can injure or kill. Always unplug the pump from power before servicing or inspecting it. If pump is equipped with an anti-airlock hole, be sure it is clear of debris. Lay pump down on its side and stand it upright while in the water to allow air out of, and water into the impeller area. Non-submersible utility pumps need to be primed with water before use. Follow directions in the owners’ manual regarding priming.
Inspect pump’s internal parts for wear or breakage. Install in proper direction to allow water flow. Plug pump directly into a power outlet. If it NEEDS to be plugged into an extension cord, make sure cord is heavy enough gauge to handle the amp draw of the pump. For 12 volt pumps, make sure battery is completely charged and leads are connected properly. Inspect the impeller area for any debris that may have entered.
