    You might want to post a picture of your " posts behind the main wires coming in" and your "nodes". http://www.pumpvendor.com/Sta-Rite_MSE-7.html

    If you were knowlegable to repair it you would know whats wrong LOL

    I assume the "nodes" would be the contacts on the pressure switch which if you have to push the contacts in manually means that either the pressure switch is bad (probably not) or the tube or pipe it is attached to or the inlet to the pressure switch itself is plugged with something and needs to be cleaned out.
