Try replacing first the capacitor. If it will not solve your problem, check the integrity of the motor winding insulation by doing a line to body resistance measurement. If it is okay, replace the motor bearings.

Can the pressure switch on the Utilitech 1hp convertible shallow well pump be changed from 20/40 to 30/50?


Yes, if the plumbing can handle the extra pressure. There should be a nut in the middle of a large spring inside the pressure switch. Turn that nut clockwise to increase the pressure. You may need to run some water to keep the pump cycling while you do this.

Low water pressure how do i increase the pressure


The water pressure is adjusted with the pressure switch, which turns the pump on and off. The pressure switch is typically set for a cut-in and cut-out pressure of 20-40 psi, or 30-50 psi. Usually there are adjustment directions on the inside of the switch cover. But, there are several other factors that may affect the house pressure. If there is a pressure tank that is pre-charged, the tank pressure may need to be reset, or the tank bladder may be ruptured. Have the entire system checked out.

I have a Utilitech 1hp shallow well jet pump which turns off and on rapidly while using water. I have 25 psi in the air tank. I replaced the pressure switch and still have problems.


Good you got it working. Please post again if you have more trouble on this or another item. Also be sure and check what I mentioned just in case you are operating at the margins, don't want a failure right after you got it going!
