Jacuzzi Brothers 1/2 Hp 8gpm 2 Wire Sumbersible Well Pump R5sub82 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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.

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.

The self contained ignition module and coil generally has a single wire that goes to the on/off switch.

There only is the possibility of a switch problem, the failure of the switch to ground the wire or there is a fault with the wire itself. If there is no external fault then the fault must be within the coil.

You meant air filter is saturated with fuel?

Yes, then likely the carburetor inlet needle valve is not functioning. Could be stuck valve, bad float, debris in fuel. Remove carburetor bowl for inspection.

We aren't mind readers, we have absolutely no idea what you have!!!

On most small garden items like trimmers and chainsaws, yes. On mowers with 4 stroke engines, no! Does it have valves? Valves mean 4 stroke, no oil, No valves means 2 stoke, so oil mix.


make model manual


make model gas oil mix

Old ones are 20 or 25 to 1, modern are 40 to 50 to 1.
