I'm a new boat owner, one of my aerators are working the other isnt. I could fix it on my own with my father in law but wanted to know where to find it I click the switch and it doesnt turn on so I dont think its a fuse, but the pump might have went out I didnt know if anyone can help me with this issue and get me an idea of how to get it back to working.
God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28

I have changed aerators on a 201 pro. It was very easy. On mine, there is an access panel in the battery compartment that lowers down with the removal of a few screws. Once lowered, you can see the aerators and the bilge pumps. Then it is just a matter of removing the old pump and replacing with the new. Probably less than thirty minutes. Of course, I am assuming it is not the switch. My boat has four aerators and I have replaced three. I never replaced a switch. I will send you a pm with my cell in case you want more detail.

Fresh water (aerator) pumps are in the rear transom area, recirculate pumps are located forward at the livewell. Which one is not functioning?

Your aerator pumps are located on the step up from the transom pad. Probably visible when you open the rear lid and look back toward transom. Be sure and check the wires to the motor that is not working, may be wire loose somewhere. I have had problems with wiring at the bow switches.
If I'm not fishing or hunting I'm hunting a place to fish or hunt.

If you replace make sure it is one with a replacable cartridge if it does not already have one. My old Ranger had the one piece. Getting the whole unit off the hose was a pain. Ranger used garden hose. While very durable they are stiff and hard to deal with. I replaced some with auto heater hose. Champion has Tsunamis. Very easy cartridge replacement.
