    Bilge pump fuses

    None of my bilge pumps are working and I suspect one or more blown fuses. I don’t see apn evidence of blown fuses at the lower helm, but an electrical diagram suggests that there may be one or more fuses that are not housed in the fuse blocks behind the helm panel. Anyone have an idea where I might look for fuse holders?

    Are they not working by the helm switch and float if you lift it up? I have seen some boats located the fuses on the battery switch panel.

      Take a look how it's wired,
      inline fuse along the line most likely

        As Joon suggested, the fuse may be located as an "in line" type of fuse, look near the pump itself.

          I agree with Joon and Dave for the float switch power but the helm manual switch is a separate fuse

            My 4087 has inline fuses as well as the helm fuses. Also, I had an issue where the bilge pump didn't run, but checking voltage at the pump indicated indicated it was OK.

            I found a butt splice connection corded that had voltage, but would not carry sufficient current. When I actuated the float switch, the voltage dropped to near zero. I cleaned the connection and replaced the butt splice and it resolved the issue.

              Check the main Battery switch panel, on my 3988 the fuses for the Auto bilge pumps are located there.

              here is a pic of a 3888 panel and the auto bilge pump fuses are upper right on the panel

                On "Mr. Darcy" (a 3270) there is a main fuse for the bilge pumps in the battery switch panel face. Then behind the panel are two inline fuses, one to each of the two engine compartment pumps. The main could be fine but one of the inline fuses behind could be blown.
