My submersible water well keeps blowing capacitors
Posted by Eric Osterhout on June 03, 2001 at 11:34:28:
I am just curious if anybody else has ever had this problem... I have a 9 year old submersible well pump that has suddenly started blowing capacitors... Voltage up top is okay, What I do notice is that I'm drawing about 14.2 amps which is slightly over rating for my 1.5 horse pump ( should be around 13 amps)... I have replaced the relays and the capacitors twice now... My Well Guy says it's time to replace the pump which will cost me about 3 grand...Any other ideas before I do that??
