It sounds like the contacts in your switch have fused. What kind of pump are you running? Make sure the pump isn't pulling more amps than the switch is rated for and is wired correctly.

    It's a Pentair. Don't think it's a wiring or amp issue b/c the pump has run without issue for months. The issue arose after the breaker tripped after changing a fitting on the power feed. Must be a bad switch. Thanks.

SOURCE: Pump comes on for about a minute...then shuts off..

Has this pump worked at all -pumped water?
When it's running for about a minute, is it pumping water?
Is this a self priming pump or do you need to prime it?

SOURCE: haywood 1.5hp power-flo matrix pool pump stopped

There is a overload switch - somtimes inside the starter solenoid area.
While you have the pump disconected from mains power - check to see if pump impella turns freely.

SOURCE: USQ1102 pump gets power, buzzes, trips breaker

The motor-start capacitor is bad. This is a very common problem. It can be easily and cheaply fixed by replacing the capacitor. Replacements are usually less than $10.

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEIv5ClLqXg for a step=by=step guide.

When you have the capacitor in hand, check the model# which is printed on it. Alternatively, you can Google the motor brand & model to find the parts list which will identify the right one. Then Google the part number, to find a seller.

1989 f-250 inertia fuel shut-off switch switch location


This should be in the owner's manual. I found the below on autozone.com, their repair help location:
An inertia switch is used as a safety device in the fuel system. The inertia switch is located in the cab, generally under the dashboard on the right side. It is designed to open the fuel pump power circuit in the event of a collision. The switch is reset by pushing each of 2 buttons on the switch simultaneously (some models use switches with only one reset button). The inertia switch should not be reset until the fuel system has been inspected for damage or leaks.
When the ignition switch is ON , it turns the EEC power relay ON . The EEC power relay provides power to the powertrain control module (PCM) and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump(s) is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse, current flows through the fuel pump relay and inertia switch to the fuel pump(s). The fuel pump relay is controlled by the PCM.
When the ignition switch is turned ON , the fuel pump(s) will operate. If the ignition switch is not turned to the START position the PCM will shut the fuel pump(s) OFF after 1 second. The PCM will operate the fuel pump(s) operate the fuel pump(s) when the ignition switch is turn to START position to provide fuel while cranking.
After the engine starts, the PCM will continue to operate the fuel pump(s) unless the engine stops, drops below 120 rpm or the inertia switch is tripped.

Breaker keeps tripping when water pressure switch kicks in


I don't know what the pressure switch operates, but I suspect when the pressure switch is actuated, it turns on a pump or a similar load. The breaker is reacting to the load after the pressure switch - not the the pressure switch itself. The switch doesn't make use of electricity - rather it stops the the flow of it, or sends it to something that makes either heat, light or magnetism (as in a motor).

Look at the load that is supposed to start or shut off when the pressure switch "kicks in" There is likely a problem with it - anything from a jammed pump, shorted winding in the motor, water in the motor, crushed / shorted wire, etc.

Drilled well - no pressure, no water - what,s wrong?


1) Click the breaker all the way off as far as it will go, and then click back on. Check if well is pumping.

2) Turn power off. Go to pressure switch and remove cover.
Following link shows pressure switch.
http://www.northerntool.com/images/product/images/16151_lg.jpg
Remove cover on pressure switch. Power if OFF!!!
Check if all the wires are firmly screwed down under each screw terminal.
Next, see if contact points are stuck together. There are 4 sets of points.
Push contact points apart if they are stuck.
Inset nail file between points. Push points together and hold firmly and draw out nail file to file off the carbon deposits.
Repeat 2-3 times to each set of points.
Turn breaker ON and check for sound of pump.

3) Move wires to another same size circuit breaker.

4) call local well service company

5) Make sure husband does physical therapy exercises to improve function of hip. Hope you're doing better soon.

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

Car will turn over but won't start. Through the


No noise from fuel pump when you turn over the car .First thing get voltage at fuel pump relay checked, is there 12 volt to the relay.If no, then problem is again the relay.--------- To reconfirm the problem, try other test, that is remove the relay and by pass the relay terminals with a jumper wire .Then with 12 volt external battery give power to fuel pump connector and see, if the fuel pump starts, then its clear that fuel pump relay is faulty.----------- Also other problem can be fuel pump inertia switch.If the inertia switch is faulty then also fuel pump will not start.-------- The fuel pump relay on a 1995 Ford Explorer is in the power distribution
box, in the engine compartment, driver's side near the firewall.----------
The fuel pump inertia switch is in the right front passenger area
it is below the dash but above the carpet in the right hand corner.--------
Its a push button type inertia switch.
--------
Fuel Pump Activation
When ignition switch is turned to START position, PCM operates fuel pump relay to provide fuel for starting engine. PCM senses engine speed and shuts off fuel pump by opening ground circuit to fuel pump relay when engine stops or engine speed drops to less than 120 RPM. When ignition switch is in ON position, EEC power relay is energized (contacts closed). Power is provided to fuel pump relay and timer in PCM. Fuel pump receives power through fuel pump relay contacts.
Inertia Fuel Shutoff (IFS) Switch
All models use an electrical interrupt switch in fuel system. During a collision or vehicle rollover, electrical contacts within inertia switch open, shutting off fuel supply to electric fuel pump. Fuel supply is interrupted even when engine is running.
A reset button is located on switch assembly. If electrical circuit trips, vehicle will not restart until switch is reset. Fuel system should be inspected before resetting switch.
IFS switch is located under instrument panel, near right side of transmission hump.
----------- If the fuel pump relay, the inertia switch and fuel pump all checked ok, and fuel pump is working with direct 12 volt source to fuel pump.Then problem relates to computer.The computer (power control module, PCM) is faulty and has to be replaced.--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a 99 ford expedition and my fuel pump stop pumping Trying to find the fuel pump fuse do not have owners manuel Where is the fuel pump fuse


Here is the manual
FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The "Fuel Reset" indicator light will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt. 1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position. 2. Check the fuel system for leaks. 3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by pushing in the reset button. 4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and return the key to the OFF position. 5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in the passenger's foot well, behind the kick panel.

My sump pump doesn't shut off, I am assuming it has to do with a float switch. It is a model number 506158..can I just replace the switch (where is it) or should I purchase a new pump. Thanks for your...


These units are normally factory sealed. You can buy a secondary float switch from a hardware store which intercepts the pumps power at the wall outlet and takes over the float switch duty. compare the costs as it may be more benificail to replace the pump

My pentair controller will not shut the filter pump off


Chances are that you have a bad relay, but the problem could be the main logic board. If there is a spare relay in the box switch all the wires from the pump relay onto the spare. Remember to shut off the breaker, and also you will need to change the wires on the top of the relay too, or you will have to do some reprogramming.
