My canister will not turn on when a hose is placed into an inlet. I have done the normal trouble shooting. I reset the breaker. It will turn on and off from the canister. The green light is on and if I remove the low voltage wires and squeezed the connection with a needle nose and the canister started.

Sounds like you found the problem-- loose connection?

I don't think that is the problem. The canister should turn on when a hose is put into one of the inlet valves. If I squeeze the low voltage connector then it would just be turned on all the time.

I don't know anything about this though. Other than running the trouble shooting tips that I found online.
