The Tank Pressure switch issue? Reply To: Pressure switch issue?

Hello, In troubleshooting pressure switches, you usually just jumper across it so it looks like a solid wire to the control. Do this only when the unit is trying to fire up, so it is in the correct sequence. ~~ If you get no continuity however, it sounds like the contacts in the switch are shot and the switch should be replaced. Jumpering across it will let you know if that is what’s keeping the heater from firing up. Do NOT leave the jumper in place as you’re disabling a safety device! 😛

Yours, Larry
