Question about Utilitech Plumbing
I'm getting 120v per leg below the splice on the pump side but the motor isn't working. The breaker isn't switching off, so I don't see a problem there.

SOURCE: no water on submersible pump
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

Be sure you are actually one the L1 and L2 posts and/or screws. On some of the motors there is a third quick connect tab that is not used when set for 230V lines but if you connect one of your incoming line leads to it the motor wont work. If that is not the case, be sure you have a resistance reading somewhere close to 1 ohm across the L1 & L2 terminals. If you get infinite, there is a problem with the motor. I assume the motor is completely silent when you turn on the switch? If not and it is humming but not starting, have the capacitor checked and if necessary, the motor start switch and winding.

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.
