Default Sullivan or Slimline Smoke pumps

Don't know if this is the right forum but....

Is anyone having problems with either the Sullivan Skywriter or the Slimline smoke pump systems? I has a Slimline and it worked for about 5 min. Did'nt even get the chance to program it. Got a new one from slimline and got this thing programmed but the next time I went ot use it ...nothing. Sent it in again. In the meantime I bought a Sullivan, programmed it and flew once wit it but could'nt get it to work again!
[&:][:@] I'm using a 9cap and everything seems straight forward. but I checked them on a straight on off channel(7) and nothing. Uuuughhhhh

Do you have the necessary check valves and filters?

verything is plumbed according to the Diagram with the exception that the 1-way valve is between the pump and the muffler. This is an addendum that is not well known. Its not a problem of getting oil. The problem is after working once or twice it quits and I cant get it to work any more. Both companies use the same processor board internally.
