Question about Goulds Pumps Goulds J15 - Convertible Jet Pump
These pumps can be wired to operate on either 115 or 230 volts. This shouldn't be an issue if it was previously working. If a new installation, make sure it isn't be connected for 230 volt operation and supplied with 115 volts - and of course; vice versa. Correct improper wiring before continuing. It is very possible that the motor has catastrophically failed due to incorrect voltage being supplied - hopefully this isn't the case.
Check and replace / reset any open fuses / tripped circuit breakers. and try again.
These pumps are often operated automatically via pressure switch. If the correct power is available to the pump it may be a problem with the pressure switch. There are many different types of pressure switches so it will be difficult to go beyond what I have told you already. You might want to see if you can locate a pressure adjustment screw and try varying it to see if it has been set too low to allow the pump to come on.
If no luck, tell me what the application for the pump is (point well pump, etc.) and what controls the pump (pressure switch, etc.). Provide the make and model of the control device and any visible settings. Do not remove any covers unless the power is first shut off.
I hope this helps & good luck!
