Default Bilge Pump Problems

Hi, I have had a new auto bilge pump put in last week and I used the boat for the first time yesterday and now my bilge pump is DONE it worked fine yesterday kicked on 3 times for about 1 minute each time it kicked on, Went to the lake again today didn't kick on after about 3 hours so I flipped the switch and nothing. Thanks for the help

Did you check to see if it blew a fuse? Also are you sure that something didn't get lodged under the float and cause it to stay on and burn up?
You only live once. But if you do it right, once is enough.

Take the wiring apart jumper to battery if it works its a fuse or breaker in between,odds are without a float switch and a manual on off it has a fuse or breaker behind that switch or one in between in the wiring.Bilge pumps tend to last for years,as not used that much.
