Livewell Pump?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys just wondering if someone can help me out. I have a 1700 Lund Fisherman and my livewell pump has gone out. This is the first time and I am not the handiest when it comes to fixing things but at the same time I would like to figure some of this stuff out. Can anyone explain to me how to replace the pump? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Process is very similar to a bilge pump, depending on how your pumps are mounted. See here for some info to get you started.

Your livewell pump may be a thru-transom style, in that case there would be a large plastic nut on the outside of the transom holding the pump in place (nut might be covered by a debris screen of some sort). When you replace this style you should use silicon or similar to seal the mounting to keep it waterproof. Hope this helps.

Not meaning to be a SA, but first and foremost check the fuse below the livewell (aerator) on off toggle switch. May save alot of time and money.

Be sure to check the impeller on the pump for weeds, Sometimes the pump is fine but the impeller is clogged. You should be able to take it apart with out having to removal it.

I have a Lund 1700 ProSport. The livewell pump has stopped working twice. Off the water, reach down in the access. twist off the pump cover and spin the impeller, no weeds or debris were found. Pump cover back on, power back on and the pump works fine.

First time out this season was the same thing.

May not need to replace the pump just yet.

Good Luck!

    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results.

    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!

    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
