i bought a home (HUD) and am having trouble with the well. it is a 5" well and according to the county is about 135' deep. the water line comes out through the top, over to the old well house into the switch and tank. I have unhooked the line (water) from the switch, turned it away to free flow onto the yard. I have applied power through a 20 amp breaker 230 volt. the pump runs for about 3 seconds with a good amount of water coming out, then stops for about 45 seconds and repeats this indefinitely. i dont believe the pump is down any where near 135'. It has 1 red 1 black and 1 green wire, no pitless and the well has been used no more than two years and has been sitting unused for about two years. any ideas?
