hi, my shurflo pump has stopped working for some reason. I have a digital varistream controller, at normal operating rates i would have it on 1. sometimes 2 if things were really grubby but usuallly 1 was more than adequate. i fired it up last week and long story short ended up running it on 0. Before 0 would barely punch water out and yet now its flying out like the equivalent of 3 or 4. Then it started shutting itself off because the rate was too fast. After priming it every two mins i managed a day running it on 0...although i did give up by about 12. The next day was the same for the first two houses then it just wouldnt run. It turns on and runs for about half a second and the light flashes from green to red, its beghaving like there is a restriction. I took it apart today and cleaned the strainer etc and replaced a few wires etc. I also checked the diapragm and it seemed ok. Even in my kitchen with no water supply it keeps shutting off like theres a restriction. I really dont know what to do. I would appreciate any help you guys could offer...seriously...i will try anything. I would prefer not to have to buy as new one just yet. Thanks, mike

Been having the same kinda problems i found that if i make sure there is no pressure in my hoses when i trun the pump off, i get no problems when i turn it on. How do you prime your pump?
