    this is a brand new motor and is in the water, unclogged in take ports. I can hear the motor running, just no water is pumping up.

Should a deep well pump feel hot?

Usually when the pump is getting hot it is going, unless it lost prime and if it ran any long period that will cause it to prematurely die

Water pump not running

Hi have you removed the pump from the well and tested if it will run without going via the presure switch. It could be that the pump is blocked. If it is blocked and has been for a while it may well have burnt out the pump. How deep is your well and how far from the bottom of the well is the pump. The pump should be positioned a good distance from the bottom of the well to prevent any silt getting into the pump to block it. I have a 110 meter deep well and the water level is 38 meters below ground. I have the pump at 50 meters below ground. I have only changed the pump once in 10 years.
I hope this helps

Do you have a filter this water going to be potable?
I would reccomend a water softener, and an iron filter for brown well water. We have used well water S Cal and Minnesota

I have a deep water well, it has not been used a lot in the last few years & the water is brown, can this problem be rectified

Hi Enslow, I can only guess that if the well hasn't been in use for some time then it's possible that if you run the pump and get brown water it may clear in time. My suggestion is simply continue to run the pump few a decent period of time that maybe a few days . As you do this take samples in say clear glass containers and see if there is improvement. So take samples every couple of hours and it will be apparent if the water is clearing or not. Make sure the pump is a decent distance from the bottom of the well.
Hope that helps

Flotec Float switch did not automatically shut off,enginburn out

Hi Lamont .. I would first check test the float switch and make sure that it is faulty, set it up in a tub of water and manually move the float switch. see if it cycles on and off. sometimes the float will get hung up on its support or on the edges of the sump pit. If the float switch is faulty then YES it can be replaced,. try a building supply store like home depot or the pl;ace where you got the switch originally.
