I have been having issues with my water kicking on and off several times, we found a short in the wiring to the well. We fixed that, water worked about 3 hrs then no water, I changed the filter which was full of mud from pulling the well. Water worked great about a week, then yesterday the beaker started tripping! My well is about 300 ft with about 200ft of reservoir. Its a 1.5 hp submersible pump. The pump is about 3 yrs old. I haven't had asnt leaks or freezes I have no idea why I'm having so much trouble.
I think Jeff Fortgang summed it up in his song "Some guys have all the luck" that Rod Stewart made famous.

Run a new temporary wire on the surface to the wellhead. That should narrow down whether the problem is in the ground or in the hole.
