    I installed a new utilitech 1/2hp shallow well pump. It took forever to get primed but after it was primed sometimes it would stop pumping water but the pump was still running I could unplug it and plug it back in and it would start pumping water again and work fine for few days and then it would do this all over again. Any idea's whats wrong.

    You could have a suction side leak or you are pumping the well dry.
