    We have an old inside pump. The switch does over arch, however we can still push it up and down and
    it does not apprear stuck.The hose going into take gets warm because no water is comming in. ???

    Pump wont stop running. No pressure on gauge. Tank and Lines are drained.
    No water pressure. Well is over 2/3 full.

    To start with, did you try priming the pump?

    bob... thanks

    I put a hose on the tank and sucked all the water out and also, drained it.

    I am not sure what you mean by priming? The old Pump sets inside our home in a close. Yep. It's a cabin! I moved out of this urban big life for??? Yikes!

    thanks,

    dar

    I did prime

    I took the hose off and poured about a liter of water into pump. Thats all it would take.

    In that case, it's possible you damaged the impeller and diffuser inside the pump with heat created when the pump lost it's prime.
