    An electrician can check the wiring leading to the pump to see if the pump has failed; sounds like the wiring leading to the pump wasn't protected which caused it to short out/burn up.

    You need a pump guy or well driller, or a plumber that is capable of pulling the pump, to check out the electrical components of the system. You may have a bad control box or pump motor windings or a shorted cable etc..

    Not anything against electricians, but I would get a qualified pump person to check the wiring. This is what they do.

    The gauge is obviously stuck there. This is a normal thing with gauges and well water.

    Default Call a pump man!

    Burn't wires and blown fuses indicate a short somewhere. If you have an Amprobe and a Volt meter and know how to use them, we can walk you through some further DIY tests. If you don't have them I recommend that you contract a trusted/qualified/certified pump installer.
