Today fired my Blueline Champ up let it warm up.
Pulled throttle out
Turned pump on and engine stalls.
Check water reserve it's empty forgot to turn water on, turn water on let tank fill up.
Engine stalls 2 more times after I turn pump on finally on the third time it was fine. What's going on ?

Yep I agree if it wouldn't be for the low hours I'd probably be trying to sell it and use the funds for a downpay on a Sapphire or something with less headaches.... remember I bought it from a hack that beat it to kingdom come I think once I get everything serviced and taken care of with a little TLC it'll be fine

I never worked with a champ but I did run the blue wave and the thermal wave.... they are some bitcchy problematic ass machines.... Its what happens when a big truck builder decides to start building slideins instead....

I would have been in business many years earlier had I known about tmf... I didnt really start using computers until 2008 and didnt even think about a carpet cleaning forum until 2012... It took me 2 more years to finally get my ass in gear on it and had it not been for this forum It might not have happened....

Honestly I don't think it's your pump. It may be a fuel issue, or
A battery issue. But hey you got a truck mount, work with it. Good luck.

Does the machine have a no water/lower water kill switch?

It can't be a battery issue as I just had a custom charging system installed due to the stock system wasn't able to power the TM and the stand along HX
