Same issue on P185WJD

Please see the recently posted manual for this unit, here:


(take the link from the that page)

Then if that doesn't help, post a follow-up.

As to the crack, personally, I'd probably just monitor it to see if it shows signs of getting longer / wider.

But I can't see it, so maybe I'd replace it. It's your life and responsibility, should it explode and injure or kill you or someone else.

Maybe you could post a pic or two? Preferably post a new question with the pix and the question regarding the separator tank (that's what you meant, right?) in the P185 section.

Fixed a shorted hot wire near alternator. Now unit starts but as soon as key returns to run dies. No history just purchased - P185WJD.
Also noticed a vertical hairline crack inside seperator tank about eight inches in length - doesn't show through to outside. Holds air when back fed. Should this be a concern enough to be replaced?

Fact checking here...

Had this machine been working for you, or did you just acquire it?

You replace fuse, key at off

you switch to "on" or "auto", and the fuse blows immediately?

Is there any noise/action preceding the fuse blowing?
