I thought I'd put this out there (in the coffee bar of course) and ask since there are so many experts here.
Last week our well pump started tripping the breaker where the meter is. Seemed to be random and not while water was running. Called electrician Friday but before holiday weekend got no response.
This last time it tripped the breaker (about 40 mins ago) the breaker wouldn't stay on.....kept tripping right back off. I suggested turning on the hoses and flipping it back. I'm simple minded so I thought let the pump do what it is trying to do (pump water) and it wouldn't trip it. So far it seems to be working. I made sure to open every possible faucet and run the washer. And so far it hasn't tripped it again. It is happening about 4 times a day. Not usually when water is running.
Any suggestions on what a cause might be? Electrical? Or a pump issue?
We really just are clueless.
