Shur flo 2088 403 144 just died any suggestions for replacement before next weekend?

O my shur flo water pump motor just died today :( searched online and sent shur flo customer service an email hopefully get an email tomorrow. So all you wonderful water pump pros what should I get as a replacement?
I only have 1 set of 6v batts so want to stay on the low end for amp hour use but loved the demand feature on the old pump. The old one was 40psi, 2.8 gpm @ 4 amp. All ideas welcome.
Thanks in advance. Ron

Died how?
1. Not running
2. running not pumping
3. pumping but just a trickle
4. runs, pumps, but won't shut off

A little better description of what you have going on may yield some helpful info rather than just a bunch of guesses.

Died as in no longer works at all- motor housing was almost too hot to touch. Called shurflo this morning and then CW. Got the new 4001 model for $89.99 free shipping. Direct replacement for my old one and it's 55psi so the showers will be better. I can't complain as the old pump lasted 16 years!

I've never heard of a 4001, and Shurflo doesn't list one, so I suspect what you mean is 4008. I installed a 4008 last year and am very happy with it. Quiet and plenty of pressure and volume.

Like JP, I replaced a Shurflo pump with a 4008 also. Haven't had a chance to use it yet so can't attest to it's effectiveness.

It is the 4008 and I have it temporarily hooked up until the new controller gets here.
Hug a vet, salute the flag and say a prayer for those still serving! Today is a day for remembering.

Ok, so I hooked it up hot to hot and black to ground, it pressurized and when you turn on the water you get good pressure for a few seconds and I mean seconds only! Then it becomes a dribble! What could cause this? Would not-having the pump controller yet cause this?
The old pump was steady pressure until it died. This new one is great pressure for 3 seconds then little until you shut it off and it's back for 3 seconds only. Any ideas?

Clogged filter

If there is a filter in the line it may be clogged.

None that I can see and I followed the line from the tank to the pump and then forward to the sink. The pump is less than 6 inches from the tank ( yes the tank is full of water)

Just for ducks

Take the aerator off the faucet and see what happens.

I did and it loses pressure sooner then down to a dribble.

It sounds like.....

Tough one. It's going to be a PITA but at this point I would remove and test the pump itself. Draw water from a bucket or something and see if the pump itself is the source of this weird behavior.

Wonder if the old pump spit out some big chunks of (technical term) crap and it's blocking the flow under pressure and falling back down. Something like a piece of one of the diaphragms? Did you take the old pump apart? Chunks missing?

I haven't taken the old head unit apart, guess I'll check that next.
