What is "everything", and what are you considering "fine"? Also, how exactly are you testing the water?

The manuals I have are after 2008..but don't show me any pictures anyway. If the pump has unions, gently loosen the top one. You should hear air escaping, and then see water running out. Tighten it back up, and try it then. If could also be something else, such as a frozen motor (tends to sound the same as a working motor to the untrained ear), or a broken impeller.

 I pressed the other pump button (which is also my circulation pump) and got nothing.


 Was there any noise or humming from the pump? If not, either your pump is bad or there's some electrical issue that's not allowing power to the pump.

I would get a volt meter and actually test for electricity at the element, and if there's none, trace back to determine where/what is causing the problem. However, in your case, since this is something you haven't even considered, I would suggest calling in a professional to diagnose the problem.....it will probably cost you FAR more to just start blindly replacing things. Yes, it 'could" be a bad flow switch, bu there's 10 to 20 other things it could be, and without properly testing things, you have no way of knowing.

Gunk, crap, stuff. One more thing, you say "The water Chem is perfect". But what YOU consider perfect, and what the experts here consider perfect, quite possibly are two different things. What are the exact readings, and how are you determining this....well water or city water.
