Hello.... we have a Jabsco
which drains our grey shower water
tank. A float switch inside the basin actuates the pump
when the basin fills. Of late we have been able to empty the basin 3-4 times during a shower
but then the breaker pops and cannot be reset until I wait an hour or so. I put an ammeter on the red wire right as we turned on the breaker and saw 29 amps which obviously will kick off a 15 amp breaker. When I let it sit for a while, turn on the breaker the normal cycle is approx 11 amps at startup then immediately drops to a running current
of 6-7 amps. This seems normal and the pump cycles on and off perfectly. The motor
does not feel hot at any time either when it faults or runs fine.
Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated.....thanks...
