When you have a pressure switch ... its purpose is to read pressure and to allow the power to pass only when the requisite pressure has been reached.

If you have power on one side and not the other ... the switch is "open". Either there is no pressure or the switch is faulty. You could pput a gage in the place of the switch to rule out lack of pressure. Dont 'jump' the switch to make it work. If it is faulty, replace it. It is there for system protection.

Thank you for your interest in

I have a pump at cabin it pumps water but won t build up pressure and shut off got this pump 7 years first problem

Normally there is a pressure TANK, used in conjunction with a Booster pump. Do you have one on this system? That's where the pressure is stored. If no pressure, the bladder is either failing or has failed.

My 8 Yr old 1hp jet pump model JRD10 cycles on and off when i try to use hose at facuet?

I think the pressure switch is cycling your pump when there is a low demand. If your system has a pressure tank, it is waterlogged (has no air in it). If you shut down you system, drain the tank, and the restart you system, it should work. Most tanks are made to be pressurized to a certain pressure before starting up your system. Some tanks have a 'tire valve' on them for pressurizing with air.

Pump has not pressure and will not restart automatically

It may be the back flow check valve. If that valve is bad water will recirculate and never build pressure. If that is OK power it down then power back up. If it does not start then the controller is probably bad.

My pump when reaches 40 psi clicks on and off contineously

check for a slow leak like a toilet valve. leaking tap in the garden or it may be the non-return valve in the unit is not sealing off and allowing the pressure to leak back into the pump so causing it to cycle. Mostly it will require a new unit to fix.

My goulds pump J15 does not engage

These pumps can be wired to operate on either 115 or 230 volts. This shouldn't be an issue if it was previously working. If a new installation, make sure it isn't be connected for 230 volt operation and supplied with 115 volts - and of course; vice versa. Correct improper wiring before continuing. It is very possible that the motor has catastrophically failed due to incorrect voltage being supplied - hopefully this isn't the case.

Check and replace / reset any open fuses / tripped circuit breakers. and try again.

These pumps are often operated automatically via pressure switch. If the correct power is available to the pump it may be a problem with the pressure switch. There are many different types of pressure switches so it will be difficult to go beyond what I have told you already. You might want to see if you can locate a pressure adjustment screw and try varying it to see if it has been set too low to allow the pump to come on.

If no luck, tell me what the application for the pump is (point well pump, etc.) and what controls the pump (pressure switch, etc.). Provide the make and model of the control device and any visible settings. Do not remove any covers unless the power is first shut off.

I hope this helps & good luck!
