Bilge light on but pump is not working

Recommended Posts

Ok so I took our 03 hurricane out and the bilge light would turn on but no pump. When I hit the switch the same thing light on but no pump. Usually you can hear the pump run. Luckily my boat is pretty good on leakage. Does anyone know what the factory pump is so I can order one? I keep my boat 45 min in a storage so I can’t access it unless I run up there

The light simply indicates that the switch is sending electrons down the wires; it doesn't tell you that your pump is bad (that's what the lack of pumping sounds tells you :-)  ).

Try and find the same pump so that R&R is easy....  you get a different form factor pump, and then you have to do work.

Its likely a 3/4" outlet. Id go at least a 750 or 1000 gph as long as its the same outlet size. Good chance its also an external float. If so, id upgrade to a internal float/water sensor 3-wire pump.
