Reya fresh water pump won’t start


Mohammad Shirloo
 

We arrived on Kokomo today after wintering her for 6 months in Greece. When I turn on the fresh water breaker, the pump does not start and the breaker trips after about 2-3 seconds..

The pump was working perfectly before we left, so I’m assuming it has something to do with the pump sitting for 6 months.

Any ideas on how to get her Re-started?

Mohammad and Aty,

My first guess would be the impeller has seized.


With best regards,

Mohammad,
The brushes may be wearing or something a bit seized. I found that giving it a firm knock as soon as you switch it on gets it going. In my case it was brushes.

Hi I have 54# 101 and just replaced my pump.  It was inconsistently running and not turning off then working properly for a while then screwing up again.  Bill recommend a replacement easy peasy and now no worries (the best) pump a little expensive but......
I figured after 10 years about time Cheers!!

See if you can manually turn the pump. If you don't see a way to turn the motor shaft, open the round impeller cover and turn a few turns.

I have two of the original fresh water pumps that I am not using. We have gone to an on-demand pump.  They both functioned last time I tested them, but I don’t know what shape they are in now..  I believe both could be resurrected, or at least be a good source of parts.
if anyone wants them, I’m happy to give them to you for the cost of shipping.

Please contact me privately if you are interested.
