Were having issues with the pump stopping after a few minutes of operation. Wait a few minutes and it starts back up only to fail again.

Is it a relay switch maybe? The pump works fine when its on......

We can't find any restrictions anywhere.

The water box runs out of water. Was hoping the float was the problem but that's not the case.

The pump justs shuts down after about 20 min of use and wont come back on for 10 min or so. After that it will only run for about 5 min.

Most of the time those pumps have a pressure switch on them so that when the water box is full, the pump stops. Try disconnecting the fill hose from the water box and see if the pump does the same thing on an open flow. Just let it run on the ground for half an hour or so. If it works ok open flow, it may be a bad pressure switch.

Hydramaster is sending new pump. They told me they are using a different one on the newer units because this one was problematic.
