When I put the top down as it clicks in it trips the mains lve tried different plugs in the house with the same result


YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER MAY BE A RCD SET TO TRIP AT
250 M-AMPS VERY SENSITIVE
TO ME IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A ELECTRICAL COMPONENT OR CABLE SHORTING TO EARTH ,COULD BE SOME DAMP GOT IN SOME WHERE AND IS CAUSING A VERY SMALL ELECTRICAL LEAKAGE, HENCE TRIPPING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER. OR IT COULD BE A COMPONENT FAULT
PROBLEM COULD BE THE LID SWITCH ,GOT WET OR FAULTY, AND IT COULD BE COMPONENT AS PUMP OR MOTOR , AFTER YOU USUALLY CLOSE THE LID WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, DOES IT START FILLING WITH WATER/ COULD BE WATER SOLENOID VALVE FAULTY , WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IF YOU CAN REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS AS SOON AS THE LID IS SHUT ,THAT'S WHAT MAYBE THE THING THAT IS SHORTING OUT, OR IF NOTHING HAPPENS WHEN YOU CLOSE LID NORMALLY UNTIL YOU SET UP CONTROLS
THEN THE PROBLEM COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR WIRING TO IT FROM PROGRAMMER HOPE THIS IS SOME HELP. PS LEAVE IT OVER NIGHT TO DRY OUT IT MAY CLEAR IT'S SELF. GOOD LUCK

If the breaker is not a ground fault breaker, then you you have an over current situation which could be caused by the pump in the well or the wiring in between.
You said it burnt the wires which tell me that one of two things happened. 1 the pump had a short internally which gradually caused the current to increase which would not of blown the breaker. 2 the breaker was defective and allowed the pump to draw excessive current and burn the wires supplying it's power.
As mentioned above you have a bad pump or shorted wiring.

Breaker trips on startup


If your circuit breaker is tripping when you turn the pump on it is caused by a bad motor. The motor probably has a short in it causing the breaker to trip,
Replace your pump and that should solve your problem with the breaker.
There is an outside chance you may have a bad circuit breaker too.

After being turned off for 4 days through Hurricane Irene... the pump will trip the breaker whenever we turn it on. The switch is good. We can only assume maybe the water is wet. Any suggestions?


I assume when you say breaker you mean a Ground Fault Circuit Interupter (GFCI) breaker or receptacle. If this is the case then what happens is water can get into devices such as pumps and the water can cause unintended electrical paths from 120VAC nodes to the motor frame which is grounded. The GFCI is designed to detect a nominal 5 mA of current to ground and trip. If the GFCI is tripping I would let the motor dry out for a day (if the weather is dry) and try it again.

If by tripping you mean a standard beaker without a test button is tripping then it is tripping because of high current. If this is the case then it may be a water problem but you are just as likely to have a short in the wiring or the motor. I would try shutting off the safety switch, disconnecting the wires to the motor and wrapping the exposed wires with electrical tape. If you turn the switches on that would normally turn on the pump and the breaker again trips you have a problem in the switches or wires. If the breaker does not trip you have a motor problem. You can try to dry it out but probably it has an internal metalic short. If you have access to the location is you could fix it but if not the motor will need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

Pump trips GFI when submerged


Check your power cable for any hole and damage, that might be the problem

if not
remove the 2 screw where the cable is connect on the pump, gently pull off the ruber from the cord and check if your 3 wire are wet ? and if any water can come out of the cable hole?
if yes you have to take most of the pump appart to make the stator and rotor get dry and also check for any black part on the stator, to make sure it not burn if you cant find any black spot on the part let it dry for a week and spray some air on the stator everyday and your problem will be fix,
At our big factory we use special oven to dry the part quicker

If you have no water that came out from the inside of the pump it has to be the power cable or your breaker the reason why the pump work fine when only the base is submerge is because the pump have less restriction (Water to push) so the engine work is very light compare when she is submerge and have to push so much water alll the way throught the hose.

I can help you if you need more info,
