replace pressure switch , someone else took off. 4 wires from box.


What type of pump is this? Is this an in the well pump? Is there a control box for the pump or just the pressure switch? I am trying to understand why there are four wires from the panel. What colour are they?

you have to trace them out .. make sure of motor leads..they go to load....may need to open panel to see what wire go where.... may be a picture...

If you don't know where they go, and you don't know where they come from, and you can't post a pic, HOW do you expect us to help you???
