live well pump problem- need opinions

4 posts in this topic

Put the batteries in my boat today. Everything seems to work except the live well water pump, it turns on for about 3 seconds and then turns off. I am running it in a dry condition but always did that in the spring before to test it and it always ran as long as I had the switch pulled out. Do you think the pump is likely shot? Thanks for any opinions.

Could just be clogged with debris. Remove the strainer shield and check it out 1st.

Does this livewell have a timer on it, and are you running it in timer mode?

Otherwise it sounds pretty odd that it would repeatedly run for 3 seconds everytime you turn it off and on...

Oops. I discovered that it is a fully automatic pump, so if there is no water present it will shut off after a couple of seconds. I could have sworn that in previous years it would run nonstop while I had it on the trailer. I did take it apart and clean the inside, so now it is ready to go for the season. Thanks for the help.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
