    My plug wont get hot

    My plug to the pump GFCI plug of course that goes into a GFCI outlet wont get hot.
    I believe it may have gotten Houston Rain wet
    Can I dry it out by opening the back or do I just wait?

    Many Thanks & Great Days to All

    Re: My plug wont get hot

    I live near Houston and mine quite working with all the rain also. I let it dry out and it started working again. I took a 5"dia. x 18" long length of PVC pipe and slid it inside. It now never gets wet enough to trip the GFI. You may have to open it up if it got really wet.
