    Push button circuit breaker popped

    Getting to the bottom of the punch list. The push button breaker for the black water overboard pump is popped.
    I am trying to learn where the actual pump is located. I don't know if it has ever been used; I purchased the boat with the beaker popped.
    I can't fix it if I can't find the pump. Any ideas?

    3988? At least that's your photo. If so it is under the steps from the salon to the staterooms.

    My Cabin lights abruptly stopped working on my 3270 but I can't find any breakers ??
    Plus my Navigation lights are very dim even with both engines running and showing positive charging ...
    Shore power is on ...

      Dim nav lights....All these lights work off your 12 volt DC system. Sounds like a bad 12volt negative connection somewhere, maybe at the negative buss at/near the fuse panel.

    checked all the fuses behind the instrument panel?

      The macerator is most likely seized up and that’s why the breaker popped. The macerator motor has a slot on the end of the shaft that will take a blade screwdriver.
      Try turning the pump/motor with a screw driver to free it up then reset the breaker. If that doesn’t do it or the motor turns freely you’ll have to do some trouble shooting.
      Check that it’s getting power, and that the circuit isn’t shorted.
      If it’s not getting power to the motor check all the connections for security and corrosion.
      The 47 has duel momentary switches that both have to be held down to power the pump. I assume the 39 has the same.
