Pump making a sound!

Pump cycling with many fast small puffs of air?

Check for empty BIB and replace BIB.
If you don't have a new BIB then disconnect the connector from empty bag.
If the sound continues, then press on center of disconnected connector to see if you can get it "unstuck"
*dropping that connector in a bucket or glass of warm water will often "unstick" the connector and stop the problem..

If none of this works, then you can Disconnect the Pump until someone can arrive to repair the issue (Call for service at 713-944-7900).

Pump shooting steady stream of air?
If this is the case the pump is bad and needs replacing.
Disconnect the pump so that you can continue using the other flavors until service personnel arrive.
