I assume this is a new instalation or you just removed and reinstalled to pump. As you have power on the load side and we assume your wiring to the pump is correst, you need to open a valve on the output side of the pum and bleed the pump. They will become air bound, Leave the valve open until it flow freeley. That should do it

Good Luck

Pump will not build enough pressure to shut off. New Bladder Tank set at 38 PSI. New switch set to cut on at 40-42 Psi. New Foot Valve, New Tank, New Pump. Blew line to well water a few days ago. Pump

check the water level in the well as it may be too deep for the pump to lift the water and maintain the pressure. Are you using a straight pump or an injection pump that helps lift the water to the pump. remember that centrifugal pumps only supply a vacuum in the suction line and atmospheric pressure on the water does the rest. when the weight of the water is equal to the pressure of the air the pump will not lift any more

Submersible pump with only two wires going to the motor. how do i connect it to the control box?

Brown wire should be active and blue should be neutral. the motor will still spin the correct direction as it is single phase . Have a look in the connector box and which ever wire is connected to the active then that will be the wire for the motor.

My new Little Giant 8-CBA Pump is hooked up underwater and plugged in. Not a sound. Electricity is working. And it's the same pump we have had for the last 7 years.

You say it's new? On some pumps they will secure the float switch when shipping. Be sure you followed directions and removed anything that may interfere with the switch.

I recently purchased a Delta 50-760 Dust Collector and was told I could convert the motor to 220 volt. I presently have a 220 volt saw and wanted to run them both on 220 so I looked at the book and it said...

I am currently in the process of doing the same thing. Look at the inside cover of the switch case. This is where the capacitor is housed and is attached to the motor. On the inside cover there is a wire schematic. Not a very good one. I have yet to fully trace out the current wire connections. Don't forget to change your plug. You do not need to replace the switch, just rewire input power to the motor.

Just replaced inducer motor, runs great but furnace will not ignite

Check the pressure switch and the little hoses going to the pressure switch. If the pressure switch does not get a vacum from the blower it will not let the furnace light.
