    I have a myers pump on my well and it will pump water, but when the pressure in the tank goes down it will not come back on, but you can turn the shaft with a screw driver and it will run. What could be the problem>

    You probably have a bad start capacitor or a bad centrifugal switch in the back of the motor.
