You probably need to purge the pressure tank.
Well Pressure Tank Installation Instructions

Pressure tanks lose their Pre Charge pressure and have to be serviced. The well Pump needs to OFF. The Pressure tank needs to be emptied of water. There should be an air valve on the tank. Check the pressure .If this is a Bladder tank and Water comes out of the air valve- then the bladder is broken and the tank needs to be replaced. The Pre Charge pressure is set to 2 psi Below the cut-in pressure set by the pressure switch. If your system operates at 20-40 psi, The Pre Charge pressure will be 18 psi. Hope this helps.....

I have a Hayward Pro series Model S 180T and my pump is not pulling in the water through the skimmer like it did, therefore I am not getting the circulation in my pool like I had in the past. I checked all...

There are a few things to look at here. First is filter pressure.
Check the pressure guage on the filter . If it is at a normal pressure, you sand is probably fine, but do a 20 minute backwash anyways.

Next, are you out doors? if so, when the last time you serviced your pump. All it takes is a bad shaft seal, some pine needles, or some leaves to completely block the impeller in the pump. The is easy to check, simply remove the wet-end of the pump and look inside.

If its the shaft seal, the pump wouuld be dripping water in between the wet-end and the motor.

Also, make sure all skimmer baskets and/or main drains are clear of debris.

Also, make sure all valves are in the correct position.

If the pressure on the filter is normal, again, i wouldnt think its the filter sand.

My water stops have to go hit pressure switch to start water what is the problem i tried to clean points with sand paper and sprayed contact spray on them did not work

If the contacts were that bad chances are the springs are no good any more and the contact points are not making good contact. Best way to go is to replace the switch with a new one.
FYI if the old one is not a low pressure cut-off model spend the extra $2 and put one in.

How do you set the water well pressure switch so that it does not cycle from low pressure to high pressure? Can you not set it to where you have good pressure all the time when watering the yard?

There will usually be a difference in water pressure between the pump cycling on and off. The larger, spring loaded nut near the end of the case is the shut off adjustment. The small spring loaded nut next to it is for setting the differential between the stopping point and when the pump will restart. Getting these two points as close as possible will minimize the pressure differential while doing yard work but short cycling is not good for motors of any kind.

Our pump is going continuously. If we stop the motor it stops but then as soon as we switch on again it starts up again. Can you help?

Most likely could be a problem with the float switch. There is a black rubber membrane which water pressure pushes up on hte membrane and activates the pump on and off. Could be something stuck at the bottom of the membrane keeping it on the on position, the membrane could be warped or the micro switch may be stuck on the on position. Depending on the pump model you may have to open up the unit and remove the pressure chamber or inspect the level pressure switch.

A lot of these pumps do have automatic thermal switches built into the motor end cap, Double check that its being fed the name plate voltage and that the voltage doesn't drop when the pump is running (which would indicate a loose or bad connection or just undersized wire in the circuit)

Pump stopped working

Inside the back case on the motor you'll see a white piece with two copper colored arms that have two silver points that almost touch. If these are rusty I've found that the motor won't turn over
. A quick fix is to take some 600+ grit Aluminum oxide sandpaper and give each of those contact points a brisk sanding to remove any oxidation. This will help the points make a positive contact . Make sure while very obvious that the motor is unplugged first.
If your pump has been leaking water it could be that rust has formed on the inside and is preventing the motor from operating properly. Which requires more aggressive dis-assembly to diagnose.
You can take it to a motor repair shop if the above listed doesn't work

Washer won't stop filling up and overflows out drain hose. Help

Your water level switch has a tube mounted on it. This tube comes up from the bottom of the washer tub. As the water level rises the pressure in the tube pushes against the switch and when the pressure gets right the switch shuts down the water and powers up the motor. Remove that tube and blow through it to get the sand out the bottom of the tub2e57bc4.jpg, pump the water out and retry

test the machine empty without clothes in it, if all is well then i think your problem may be the motor carbons, take them off and check for damage, make sure one of them has not spit down the middle, also look at the armature for signs of sparking,a worn armature or carbons will work fine at slow speeds

you haven't mentioned the carbons, its trying to spin so may not be the pcb
