Diamond shallow well jet pump wont rotate, froze up.

I have a diamond shallow well jet pump model # SJC50, 230V, 4amps, 60Hz, .5 HP that froze up and wouldnt turn over. I've taken it apart and dont see anything that would cause it not to rotate. circuit breaker keeps kicking off when the over temperature switch kicks on.

You need to look at the start capacitor, check it with a meter, look at, and spin bearings. make sure they spin free

Jet pumps are inherently noisy, has it always been this loud? Loud is a subjective measurement and varies from person to person.

I have a Utilitech 3/4 HP jet shallow well pump #0003134. On start up, it hums a long! time before turning, sometimes tripping the 15 AMP breaker. Anything I can do?


Try replacing first the capacitor. If it will not solve your problem, check the integrity of the motor winding insulation by doing a line to body resistance measurement. If it is okay, replace the motor bearings.

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)
