No Water From Indicator Nipple

Most times we check out a motor for this problem, it is simply a clogged nipple or hose that leads to the nipple.

FIRST make sure the water pump and thermostat are working properly.

SECOND thing to try is to insert a small wire into the nipple hole about 1" while the motor is running.  This will clear out a clog most of the time.

THIRD would be to blast the nipple with compressed air while running.


Thank you Gregory and Carlo!
