    Default pump problem

    We are having a problem with our Waterous Eclipse cafs system just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas. The problem is the compressior is not kicking on we have chased the wires and can't locate a fuse or any lose wires. We have called american LaFrance but they have not been able to help in the process. We have also checked the cylinoids and changed the compressior oil but that still hasn't fixed the problem please let me know if u have had the same problem or have an idea on how to fix. thanks

    Waterous advised us to add jumper from 2 to 3 relay, worked a few times, we now have a jumper from 3 to 4 relay and compressor is working!
    After lunch, we will operate and spray some cafs. Do you think we are good to leave jumper installed?

    Talking

    If the system was working normally before, And now it's working with the control solenoid jumped then I would start with replacing the solenoid. There is an electrical fault somewhere that is probably a minor low cost part.
    Contact the folks at waterous and they will talk you through the diagnostics to locate the problem and fix it properly.
    We've had an Eclipse system for ten years and have found the folks at Waterous extremely helpful when a question arises.
