Take a tie strap and readjust the float,, lower the float so it won't let the float get to the top of the pump or zip tie it to the pipe away from the pump,, you don't need a new pump or switch

I have steamvac 120 V 60 HZ 7.9 A im going to use in my country Argentina 220 V 50 HZ input i need a tranfo 220V 110 V and who many watts?????


220 volts at 7.39 amps = 1738 watts
120 volts at 7.9amps = 948 watts so any unit capable of 1000 watts at the 110 volts will do the trick

Unfree it when its stuck by paper?


Gene:

If the shredder is stuck that badly, unplug it and use a phillips screwdriver to open the plastic shredder head. Once you get the plastic shroud out of the way, you'll be able to get to the shredder rollers and clear the jam.

You could have a blown fuse because of a clogged vent or a bad thermistor. A thermistor is used by electronic controls to measure temp changes inside the dryer. If the sensor is open then the brain does not have a clue how hot the dryer is. So it shuts down. Repair clinic has an excellent thermistor replacement video.

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

My generator is not putting out the proper voltage? it's only putting out approx 75 volts on the 120 volt circit. i adjust the idle to full out and i get approx 112v.


Most low voltage conditions on generators are simply due to a low engine rpm. Most modern generators are 2- pole windings. So your engine rpm should theoretically run @ 3600 rpm. which will produce 120/240 volts @ 60 HZ. In actuality You want to set your rpm's @ Approx. 3720rpm no load. About 62.5 Hz. Without getting to technical this will give you your desired 120/240 volts loaded. Hope this helps.

Hooking up a Hot tub


Everything above tells me this is 120V unit...if thats the case a single pole breaker is sufficient. Also by what you have written, a 15 amp breaker should suffice.
