Check your pressure tank. It sounds like it is water logged. This means there is no air pressure in it. If you're cut in pressure is set at 30 pounds you must have 30 psi of air pressure in the pressure tank.

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.

Pump will not stay running. motor gets warm. motor shuts down after running for about 10 to 20 seconds.


Check the voltage at the pump while its running. If the electric feed line is too long for the guage wire,
voltage drop will cause the motor to overheat and switch off.

if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.
