Bilge Breaker Trip

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2006 220ssi, and yesterday i noticed that the bilge pump breaker keeps tripping.  I can reset it, and the bilge will start up again, pump for 30 seconds, and trip.  If i try to press the breaker, it will not reset immediately, however it will reset 1min± later.  The auto float also is not working due to this issue.  From other forum searches, it sounds like there is potentially debris in the bilge water (this is post HEAVY spring cleaning) that is causing the bilge to potentially bind down and trip.   Does that have merit?  What else could it be?

Burnt out bilge pump maybe? Does the pump work when you reset the breaker before it trips again?
