    Water well- I have a breaker going to Franklin Electric model 2823008110 motor control and a Square D pumptrol model 9013FSG 2. My breaker has kicked off twice during last 3-4 days and tank goes empty. I flip breaker and pumps starts. Red button on Franklin box does not flip.

    What do you think is going on?

    Could be a bad breaker, or more likely, you have something else going on.

    You need to check the amps the pump is pulling.

    What size is your breaker?
