Default Gengrich pressure resets

Anyone ever reset them, I can't get mine started and thought this might be the problem but it's not in the instructions and he won't answer the phone

I'm am a electrics idiot but there is 240 at the plug, tried the motor reset. When I push the start button the relay on the right side of the box clicks. I was starting it up when after failing to kick in after 30 seconds it all shut down.

Quick? is will the machine run if you hold the switch in for 20-30 sec? Lapierre or CDL you have to do that sometimes until the LOW Psi pump relay catches above 20 psi and then it will stay going by itself.

Was looking around for others and see that daryl posted pics of a white box on top of membrane=any reset on it?

Sorry about pics, I'm pretty much past my pissed off point now. I don't see any resetable switches. Yes I was holding the start button down for about 20 seconds when it just stopped( this is how it normally runs)
Time to get the baby a bath and look at it again when momma gets home

Open all you valves, bleed off all the pressure everywhere and try again to start it. Mine did the the same thing you're talking about, I think, and there was some back pressure in the permeate line ( the valve that switches flow from discharge to wash tank) and after I bled that off it started right up,
