Forward bilge pump in 280 cxi not pumping. Just getting a hum. Bought a new one same problem. Any ideas on where to look for the problem? It's a Johnson 2200 gph.

Thansk guys. Delayed the launch I'll get in there over the weekend.

5 years of being exposed to salt water can do a lot to wiring, connectors and the float switch
Try hooking the Pump(s) directly to a battery and see if it/they run.

I wondered about the wiring, but the boat is a 2005 so it shouldn't be bad. I will def. check the hose next. Any other thoughts?

Is the hose clear and not obstructed?

Wiring good?
