Well pump doesn't work after power outage
 
Dear experts,

We just went through a power outage. Yesterday, I ran a power generator, and was able to use my water well. This morning I tried it again, and the well pump didn't work. Now power is back, but the pump still is not working. I tried to turn the pump power switch on and off, without success.
Could you please help me with this?
Thanks.

shut power(breaker or pull fuse) .. remove cover from press switch.then turnpower back on hold contactor in with piece of wood to energize pump until pressure is reached...turn power back off to replace cover then turn power back on ..
NOTE you can use insulated pliers or screw driver as long as you don't touch side of enclosure while holding contacts in..also ..contactor rocks back and forth..hold to one side to close the open contacts...hope this helps
