        I've always had to crack open the line on the other side of the pump to get
        water moving when using a container. I generally loosen the line at the first T
        fitting after the pump. As soon as I get some water flowing there I tighten it
        back up and all is well until I suck a little air into the line by running the
        container too low (which I've only let happen once). Be careful running the
        pump dry or you'll ruin it... If you had line pressure going into the pump this
        may not be necessary.

          Hi Steve,
          I'd start at the pump: disconnect the output tube and stick a plastic tube on it; put the end of the tube in a container, then turn the pump on. If you're getting a good flow there the pump is good: reconnect the output line, and check further up the water path until you find the blockage.

          If the pump fails the 1st step, then I suggest you have it rebuilt, rather than buying a new one: http://www.jcbeverage.com/

          While your pump is rated to pull water from a container beneath it, it's best to place that container above the pump level to keep it from draining the pump between uses. If you do place the container below the pump, put a one-way check valve in the water line to keep the pump from draining. A wet pump is a happy pump! :-)

          Good luck,
          Tex

                      after all i took the vibe pump out, going to get it rebuilt. If i'm going to do this I should do it right!!!!! bioler is out. looks like on second look that there is some wring issues. Imagine that wiring being bad on a 20 year old machine.

                        Vibe pump? What machine are you working on? All the replies you have been receiving are in reference to a rotary pump. Vibe pumps are replaced, not rebuilt.

                          I ve been toying with using a vibe pump. The only problem might be the pump running too long when doing a refill from empty. Sure could save some money if one

                            I've been toying with using a vibe pump. The only problem might be the pump running too long when doing a refill from empty. Sure could save some money if one had a bad motor. I'd pack it in some soundproofing material though.

                              Many possibilities. Taking out the motor & pump leaves a cavernous hole that begs to be filled. Tex
