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!

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
