Read on Internet to diagnose and get at part.Luckly they sent new fill hose along with level control switchas that was problem. Visually there was nokink or blockage. Upon removing hose, I discovereda slit on hose which did not allow pressureto actuate diaphram. I installed new switchand never thought to return as savings insteadof calling repairman was a no brainer !!!Word of caution " never force"when removing or installing a part.
