I have a Franklin control box that keeps tripping . This has been going for 3 or 4 days now and i only have400 gal of water left in the storage tank.
yesterday morning it didnt trip and pumped water for one 15 min run of the pump,but it tripped all day.
This morning It didnt trip and gave me 250 more gallons,but tripped the rest of the day
Im assuming the trip sensor may be bad since it worked when it was 56 degrees at 4am (which isnt normal anyhow) and quickly rises to 85-90 degrees or it could be something worse .
(update) may 24 Fri: I tried this proceedure again and this time it didnt run..So that looks like thats it?
I just happen to have another franklin control box for a possible replacement in whole or as parts.
ive added a picture of both for your comparison cause they are a little different from each other.
My questions are these :
1-How can i determine why its tripping?
2-if i cant determine that,would it be advisable for me to try and swap out the control boxes ?
Is this an easy doable option ? My skills set may be iffy.
Notice that both franklin control boxes are a bit different. I see one trip switch on my current box . The replacement has 2 trip switches. (See the control box labels as listed below.
3. Control box IDs: On my well now is model 2823008110 HP1/1.5 V230 Hz 26
my pic "parts" control box is model 2823018110 HP 1/2.0v230 sf max 13.2 amps
4. i hope this is clearer now.Advice please.
