    The pump on my Elddis Accordo has been noisy since day 1 but after a recent trip to Scotland on some very bumpy roads it has become even noisier! I want to check it out but I'm not sure how to gain access to it - any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

    You need a bump !

    But if you can hear it you should be able to find it - might not be easy though, like taking out bottom of a cupboard.

    Once you find it:LOL:

    Try getting a couple of erasures (posh name for a pencil rubber)
    cut to size, drill the appropriate sized hole and mount under the four feet, It won't stop the noise, you will have to source longer screws, but it will quieten it a tad

    I have an 2014 Accordo 125. The water pump is in the cupboard below the cutlery drawer. Mine is at the front of the cupboard with its pressure vessel next to it. Mine has easy access.

    The pump in the Miller got slowly louder over a short time period..
    Woman moaned about it but I just said they all do that ..

    In the end it got so loud I had to do something ..
    I got some thick gasket cork and mounted the thing on that.. ( cork is about the best sound deadening stuff around ! )
    It was much quieter but still a tad boisterous ;)

    Decided to bite the bullet and replace the thing..
    It was as I was taking it out to fit the new pump I discovered what the problem was ...
    The 4 screws holding the diaphragm to the motor had come loose !!
    A quick tighten up, a dab of nail varnish on the buggers, and all remained quiet until it was sold almost 3 years later

    Just posted the same problem as outlined above. The screws are in contact with the body, I guess, and it is vibration that causes some of it.
