    Default place diverter bleeding

    Okay, I'm about ready to start punching random people in the face because of this place diverter. All the electric is fine. It'll work for maybe 2. Up/down. Cycles, then. Stop. What is the deal with this thing?! What is the proper procedure for bleeding the lines? Ive already spent way too long fighting this!

    They are pretty simple devices. Those Bennett pumps are self bleeding. Typically issue occur when there is not a good solid connection straight to the battery for both power and ground or when a solenoid does not have a good ground to the pump body. The solenoids should only be lightly tightened with your fingers. I had an issue with mine last season with it not wanting to move up more than once or twice. I screwed the solenoids in and out about a 1/4 turn several times and the issue went away for the rest of the season. Is this a new unit or a used one? Are you using diodes or just switches?

    Haha, yeah, you'd better watch it!

    Well, I searched around before I posted, I disconnected the solenoids from the wiring harness, and went straight to battery with them to bypass any power/ground problems. No diodes, just switch. (i didn't wire it, guy before me did. Worked last year beforr the motor went out.)

    Read your other thread. I have no idea. Maybe buy a new pump and move on.

    Lol, I know right?! I think we came to the conclusion that it has to be the pump. I'm taking it buy the place that replaced the motor for me and see if he has any ideas.

    When I had issues like this the problem was always the wiring. My ground wasnt solid. Also note the the Bennett pump requires a full 12 volts. to function. Try placing a battery charger on the battery if all your wiring is solid. i recently left my bilge pump and lights on all night along with some other electrical items that killed my battery enough to keep the pump from functioning.

    This happened to me twice. The last time was just before the Elsinore race. It would go up but only go down when I would play with the up - down buttons. Replaced the Hydraulic cylinder, problem solved. Turned out to be a bad O-ring in the cylinder both times.
    I may be growing older, but I refuse to grow up!
