Ballast Pumps Making No Noise and Not Working
My ballast punps were all working when the KGB ballast started working sporadically. It quit working at all, but the port and STBD ballast still worked fine. A few hours later they all quit responding. The lights on the switches come on. The impellers look fine and I can turn them easily. When the KGB ballast was giving me trouble I used to be able to reset the fuse on the back port side fuse box, but it isn't even popped out anymore. None of those fuses are popped out, yet it is like the pumps aren't getting power. Is it possible all three pumps have gone out at the same time? Is there one problem that could cause all the pumps to quit?

I am seriously frustated as this boat only has 100 hours and I am already having problems with the trailer and boat. Any help is appreciated.

What year make and model...If it is new that is what your dealer is for

100 hrs it maybe time for NEW ballast impellers

had a fiend with the same issue. He took off the cover for each pump and removed the impellor then turned on the pump and rotated the motor by had. They had frozen up. He put some WD40 on the shaft and no issues since.

It is a 2004 x-star. There is not a mastercraft dealer in Kansas City. I am the second owner and the boat is from Nebraska water sports. I have replaced one impeller. I will try the hand crank solution. It just seems strange that they didnt slowly quit rather one stopped working and then the other two just quit responding at all. Aren't they all independent? Thanks for the replies.
