No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.

If your generator puts out 240 volts and has the amperage to handle the pump load, I believe it can. Your generator installer could answer that.

Their should be a breaker dedicated to just the pump and you can shut it off there.

The clicking you hear inside the little box is the contacts that send power to the pump. They have probably gotten corroded to the point they would not make contact. By kicking on and off you probably loosened some carbon, it was still making a poor connection and carboned up again. Only this time causing the points to stick open (so no clicking) You can take this switch apart and give it a good cleaning then reset the points. Or you can get a new switch and install it on the system. Ether way be sure that the power is off for these operations as this is all the power going to the pump.

Hi,

I believe sediment filter inline would take care off this.The only thing I can think of is that you have the wrong kind of sediment filter on your line. You may want to check what the size of the screen is, or what the micron size the filter will take out. Too big of filter will let the small **** through, but too little will plug up super fast. Sometime you have to take the good with the bad until what ever caused the disturbance in your well is done.

Thanks.

Make sure that the deck parts move freely. That the blades and/or bearings or pulleys anr not siezed or blocked. Also you might adjust your carb just a little in air/fuel mixture and idle rpm.

Not sure about the fuel/oil ratio. Modern 2-stroke engines are designed to run with less oil due to concerns about pollution and 50:1 isn't unusual. That was the recommendation for my strimmer but I added a little extra oil to maybe 30 or 40:1 and it gave good service for 30 seasons.

The fashion for anti-pollution measures also spread to the fuelling of small engines especially in some areas. In this case the fuel/air adjustments are either hidden behind plastic or metal plugs or deleted from the carb altogether.
If there are no screws it is a preset type and if dismantling and a thorough clean doesn't restore performance it is reasonable to make one of two assumptions (or maybe both) - either the carb is faulty in some way (diaphragm perhaps) or the crankshaft seals are failing and allowing air into the crankcase preventing a good induction.
It isn't unknown for a small 2-strokes to perform well all season and then be next to useless after standing idle all winter. If this is the case it is worth suspecting those seals have lost flexibility...
