    sounds like a popit valve is sticking. try taking the box cover off and remove the valves and cleaning them. It's the box on the drivers side where the hoses come out. Makes sure you hook up the contacts correct when done.

    check the S2 (3-way angle right) valve shown in the diagram to see if it is stuck. Also check the chamber (were the valve came out of) to see if there is any foreign material stuck inside. I also attach a diagram to show how to test the valve
