View Full Version : bilge and ballast pump switches issues

07-21-2013, 01:09 PM

I started having issues with my starboard ballast tank switch; it would turn the pump to fill but wouldn't hear the pump working when switch to empty. Somehow it started working when I parked the boat. I don't hear pump running to fill or to empty the tank. The port side works OK. As well as the center tank.

In addition to it I noticed that my bilge pump the was set on auto stopped running and it wouldn't run when I switched to manual.

Any suggestions how to troubleshoot the issue?

Here is update on the issue:
Tested with key in the far left position
all switches light up when switched to empty or fill
starboard dont hear motor running in both position
KGB ballast; can hear pump for fill and dont hear pump on empty (was able to turn on once to empty when flipping switch back and forth)
Port works fill and empty (once wouldnt turn on empty when flipping switch)
FWD bilge switch wouldn't work on manual (never heard it going off on auto)
main bilge would't turn on manual (hasn turned in auto lately)
