Question about Flotec Corrosion Resistant Shallow Well Jet Pump 1/2HP, 8GPM

1 Answer

I have a flotec jet pump for a shallow well. It keeps throwing the GFI and shutting off after only 10-15 seconds. I have replaced receptacle, water level is fine (has a float).

    I have already changed out the GFI so I know it's not that. The motor turns freely. I was suspecting the start capacitor.

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.

Why wont my Jet pump shut off?


Is the little pipe that connects to the pressure switch clear?

I suggest you remove it and blow through it to make sure it is clear. If the pressure is getting to the switch, it has to shut off ... your switch should be set around 30/50 (on at 30 - off at 50)

Pump stopped working while pumping


Yes, most motors are thermally protected. It is usually bi-metallic, and resets itself.

I have a Flotec FP 4022-10 3/4 hp shallow well pump. It was working fine yesterday afternoon and then in the evening I had no water. I replaced the pressure switch and checked the pressure in the tank...


If heating up, the motor thermal switch is opening to shut down the motor; this is by design. During the brief run time does it pump at all? It sounds as if there may be mechanical issues on the pump itself and the motor (from the extra draw) is heating up and shutting down. I'd look in to the pump to see if anything had failed within it.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
