Question about Utilitech Plumbing
I'm getting 120v per leg below the splice on the pump side but the motor won't run. The breaker doesn't switch off, so I don't see a problem there.
There is a starting capacitor on the motor pump, check this out if faulty then replace it.

It could be you have an obstruction in water flow. Are you sure your check valve is correctly installed ( not reversed ). If there is no check valve you might want to install one. A quick way to find out is to use an amp meter and monitor the amps. If it goes beyond the F.L.A. on what the pump is designed for and does not come back to norm after a few seconds, than this is what is probably happening. Be safe and always call an electrician.

Typically, there is foreing material in the veins of the pump, I suggest that you disassemble the pump and inspect the impeller, and remove foreign material.

To get a new owner manual send them an email and they will email or send you one,
Is the pump was working fine for a long time before that happen?
There is a motor problem,
You can check your pump power cable try to find any damage or hole in it.
If the cable fine
And if the impeller and wheel still turn before triping the breaker It would be a good thing to check the amperage with a special electronic tool to see how much amperage the pump take,
if you are good in manipulating tool we can send you the breakdown or i can support you to open it and to check the motor trying to find any burn part in it. That way we will know right away if its worth to fix it.
let me know

The difference in the two pumps is that with a three wire pump the start and run capacitors are in the gray box. With a two wire pump the caps. are built into the motor. Because of this with a two wire pump you only need to run the 240v down the well to the pump. The yellow wire on the three wire pumps is the igh voltage wire that come from the start cap. I have used both pums but usually use the two wire because they are easier to hookup and the wire is cheaper because you only need to run three wires. (2 hots and ground) On large HP pumps you will always have three wire motors because the caps. get too big to get them in the motor. It is best to go three phase with big pump if you can.
