PK1AM Pside-Kick: Troubleshooting
|Pump is cycling off and on
||Pressure switch not set correctly
||Cut off pressure must be higher than CSV1A set pressure. Increase pressure switch cut off.
|Waterlogged pressure tank
||Replace pressure tank
|Bad or torn diaphragm in CSV1A
|Manifold not assembled correctly
||Verify assembled as instructed
||Demand is more than pump can provide at current pressure setting
||Reduce demand so it is within pump capabilities to maintain desired pressure.
||Too much air in tank
||Reduce air pressure in tank to 5-7 PSI below pressure switch cut in pressure.
|CSV1A setting is too close to pressure switch cut off pressure
||Set pressure switch cut off pressure at least 10 PSI higher than CSV1A setting.
|Pump rapid cycles at start up and then begins to function correctly
||Air pressure in tank too high
||Reduce air pressure in tank to 5-7 psi below cut in pressure.
|Multiple check valves in system working against each other
||Remove all but the check valve or foot valve on the pump itself.
