|Solid Yellow Light||Dry Well||Wait for the automatic restart timer to time out. During the time out period, the well should recover and fill with water. |
If the automatic reset timer of the Pumptec-Plus is set to the manual position, push the reset button to reactivate the
unit. If the reset timer is set to manual in the Pumptec, turn off power for 5 seconds to reset the unit.
|Blocked Intake||Clear or replace pump intake screen.|
|Blocked Discharge||Remove blockage in plumbing.|
|Check Valve Stuck||Replace check valve.|
|Broken Shaft||Replace broken parts.|
|Severe Rapid Cycling||Machine gun rapid cycling can cause an underload condition. See flashing red and yellow lights section below.|
|Worn Pump||Replace worn pump parts and recalibrate.|
|Flashing Yellow Light||Stalled Motor||Repair or replace motor. Pump may be sand or mud locked.|
|Float Switch||A bobbing float switch can cause two-wire motors to stall. Arrange plumbing to avoid splashing water. Replace float switch.|
|Ground Fault||Check insulation resistance on motor and control box cable.|
|Solid Red Light||Low Line Voltage||The line voltage is below 207 volts. Pumptec and Pumptec-Plus will try to restart the motor approximately every two |
minutes until the line voltage is normal.
|Loose Connections||Check for excessive voltage drops in the system electrical connections (i.e. circuit breakers, fuse clips, pressure switch, |
and Pumptec-Plus L1 and L2 terminals). Repair connections.
|Flashing Red Light||High Line Voltage||The line voltage is over 253 volts. Check line voltage. Report high line voltage to the power company.|
|Rapid Cycle||The most common cause for the rapid cycle condition is a waterlogged tank. Check for a ruptured bladder in the water tank. Check |
the air volume control or snifter valve for proper operation. Check setting on the pressure switch and examine for defects.
|Leaky Well System||Replace damaged pipes or repair leaks.|
|Stuck Check Valve||Failed valve will not hold pressure. Replace valve.|
|Float Switch||A bobbing float switch may cause the unit to detect a rapid cycle condition on any motor or an overload condition on 2-wire motors. |
To reset a Pumptec, remove power for 5 seconds. To reset a Pumptec-Plus, press and release the reset button. To eliminate float
switch bounce, try to reduce water splash or use a different switch.
