: i am having the oppposite problem -- the high-end cutoff is not tripping, the pump never stops; i can't find anything about troubleshooting on the 'net but is suspect my diaphragm is shot.

I find that one of three things happen to a pressure switch to cause it to malfunction. I have experienced two of the three. 1- contact points get burned--I simply turn power off and file them back into shape.2- Mud gets into the diaphram tube and stops it up-- I simply clean it out-gently. 3-diaphram goes-I have never experienced that one. I used to buy a new switch everytime something went wrong-but found that the problem was easy for me to fix(I like to fix things and not replace now--sounds cheap-HUH) Good luck
