Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

No, only a thermal overload. If the unit was hot and has had a chance to cool off it should start. If you have voltage to the motor and it will not even hum or buzz, you need a new motor. The short must have blown the winding open.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Use Google and put in Flotec parts.
I did that and several parts dealers came up.
Pick one and put in your model number.
I'm sure you can find a housing, the pump that I looked at had one available.

Well I know it a dirty job but someone has to did. Unhook the pump from the plumbing and take the pump out so you can see what fell into the sump pit and is lodged in the impellers.
If you have it out already turn the impiller backwords and see if that frees it up.

Flotec Model FP4012-D8 stopped pumping water. I took pump apart except for small impeller housing edge break I can see no reason for no suction?????


Hi jandh40...

You have an air leak somewhere in your piping, housing of the pump or maybe the mechanical seal and that is causing your pump not to pump.
Try to disconnect the piping and hook a water hose up to the pump and turn the pressure on, it should show you where the air leak is by spraying water out of the leak area.

I replaced old pump w/ Flotec 1/2HP FP4012 and replaced old pressure tank w new 35gal tank. Pump primed but cycles on-off every minute constantly even w/ no water turned on. Goes to 50PSI, loses pressure...


The water and therefore the pressure has to be going somewhere. If you are sure that there are no leaks in the house or outside, then the water is going back into the well. There is a check valve either in the suction line of the pump between the top of the well and the pump or down in the well.
If this check valve fails, it allows water to go the wrong way and back to the well. The result is that you lose pressure.
Secondly, you have to be sure that there are no air leaks between the top of the well and the inlet to the check valve. Leaks in that piping will make repriming difficult.
Write back with more and I'll try to help more.

My flotec well pump will squirt water and then stop . I keep feeding it water slowly but it won;t prime. What should I be doing?


Check for an air leak in your siphon line. It can be very small and totally prevent the pump from priming.
