    Is the drain on the water heater closed? You will soon know as there will be water under your van as it pumps out?

    Have you opened all the taps to let the air out?

    Try checking for a cracked pump or strainer housing.

    Ice might have cracked the plastic over winter and your pump might just be sucking air!
