|In response to Re: Well Pump Problem|
Most likely and simplest thing first; Prob the contacts are worn out or corroded on that pressure switch (inside the box thingie)
I has same prob after 15 yrs on our deep well press sw too. i shut off electricity to pump (and pressure sw (same breaker for our's) and used an electrical contact "nail file" type tool to clean the contacts. they were pitted so much that we ended up buying a new pressure switch ($10.00 at the time).
here is a link on the pressure switches..am sure home stores have em in stock too:
2nd possible thingie..may have a pressure switch nipple that's plugged..
