Question about Flint & Walling/Star Water # 1/2HP Shall Well Pump

Open Question

I have a f&w 1hp jet pump, 60-hz, 1-ph, 115/230 volt model#92F110A There is current to the moter but does not run. The pressure switch is closed and the motor casing is warm. I've shut off power to the pump. I can turn the impeller shaft by hand. Before this the motor would run for a long time before the system would reach presure to open the pressure switch. 30-50 switch. I think I have a faulty control valve which made the motor run for long periods. What part-parts could be bad?

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.

Can the pressure switch on the Utilitech 1hp convertible shallow well pump be changed from 20/40 to 30/50?


Yes, if the plumbing can handle the extra pressure. There should be a nut in the middle of a large spring inside the pressure switch. Turn that nut clockwise to increase the pressure. You may need to run some water to keep the pump cycling while you do this.

Wiring for timer


T101P3 is ordinary 120Volt T101 mechanism inside a beige plastic box.
Rated 40 amp.
Three terminals A 1 2
Very small white wires that power the WG1570 clock motor are connected to terminals A and 1.

White neutral wire from breaker box connects to terminal A
Black Hot wire from breaker connects to terminal 1.
This will power the clock motor, which will switch the timer on-off.
Green ground wire and bare copper wires connect to green ground screw.

115volt motor should have 2 wires.
Connect white wire to terminal A
Connect black wire to terminal B

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

I have a 1hp 115/230 phase 1 sprinkler pump what size pressure switch do i need 20/40 or30/50 ?


The pressure switch needs to be sized for the pressure and the motor current. The pressure would depend on your piping system, and hao many sprinklers you have on a section. You can buy a pressure switch that is adjustable, and you can set the pressure you need. You also must be sure the current rating (amps) of the pressure switch can handle the motor current (amps) there are is a wide range of switches available. You can't go wrong with a square d though. Available Home Depot, graingers, electrical supply etc.

Low voltage only or can timer be used for 110 v


1 hp= 750 watts
125 vac = 125 volts alternating current, wall outlets
5 amp= 5amps

125vac x 5amps= 625 watts

a timer is a switch with a clock on it. just like a switch in a lamp cord.
