Question Fresh water pump wont pump

Have a Aquajet fresh water pump worked great couple of months ago.
Now just the electric motor makes noise but wont pump any water.
The screen is clean and the water tank is full and water flows from it.
Any help would be greatful.

Thanks
John

Did you remember to switch the water fill valve back to the city water position after you filled the tank?

As the other post said, Make sure your valves are set in the correct position. Loosen the hose on the outlet side. Sometimes you can have a problem priming. Also make sure the inlet side hose is tight. If loose, it will suck air.

Thanks

Tried all of the information you's have given me,
still nothing, the pump motor is just humming ?
The date on it is from the year 2000.
Can these be rebuilt or just buy new?

Thanks to all
John

John they do have kits to change the pump portion of pump.
The pump maybe just jammed try reversing battery feeds and see if kick can loosen the shaft to spin..

My water pump will not prime unless I have a faucet open. When you de-winterized, did you remember to close the anti-freeze siphon hose valve? Yup, that's how I knew to ask; done that.

Mine did the same thing first time out this spring. I did a lot of head scratching until I figured out that the shop that winterized for me closed a valve I didn't know I had, between the fresh tank and water pump. Trace the line from tank to pump and see if you have a valve along the way that could be closed.

Lightbulb Done

Thanks to you all for the great advice, but the pump is done,
ordered a new one from Fresh water Systems, hate to get stuck some
where and have no water, my other half would not be a happy camper.

Thanks again
