I can't seem to fill my live well past 1/3 of the way. My switch allows for a
Empty/ Recirc/Auto. I had a new pump installed a while back. Yet think i should be able to fill past1/3 of the way? I can flip the aerator on and the water will not rise? Is there some type of crest adjustment? It's on Ranger R83. Thanks in advance.

One of your pumps is not working. Normally the port side pump is not working when it does this.

Your valve needs repair, could be leaking by and only recirculating the same water.

Your valve could something stuck in it, remove it and inspect it.

Thanks for the insight and direction. Never pulled the pump or valve so it will be a learning experience hammer

Mine did the same thing last year. Replace the three way valve and a pump. Very easy and parts are available online. I spent less than 80 bucks. If your in a hurry a Ranger dealer will have the valve
