I don't remember ever seeing a box like that for 1/2, 3/4 or 1 hp pumps
Roger that--so I am okay with that box? I just need to test or just replace relay before I pull the pump?You can get the CSCR box for any size pump. The running capacitor just makes the pump a little more efficient like power factor correction capacitors. But if that little blue relay is bad noting will work.
I have found nothing on Franklin site saying you have to use one vs the other. Just the one is more efficient. But who know maybe this pump like the more simple model.I don't remember ever seeing a box like that for 1/2, 3/4 or 1 hp pumps
Thanks, I hope that is the case. Having a heck of a time finding one locally. Probably have to order and wait.I was looking at
http://www.franklin-electric.com/media/documents/M1311_60_Hz_AIM_Catalog.pdf table 9 on page 13. It says the pump designed for use with that control box that has a motor model prefix of 214505 for use with the 282 405 5015 (CRC) control box listed in table 49. The one for the non-CRC box also has prefix 214505 if I now read that right. So based on the manual, this would seem to indicate that that either box could be used with the same motor.
Anyway, K Bar would seem to have confirmed Valveman's suspicion of the bad relay.
Yep I was thinking of ordering that box and giving it a try before pulling the pump. So far its cheaper than buying just the starter relay.While waiting for QD relay "223 415 902" (according to table 49), I suggest carefully re-checking your resistances. http://franklinaid.com/2012/06/14/column-by-column-winding-resistance-in-ohms/ Accurately measuring those low resistances with an ordinary ohmmeter is hard.
Make sure you have wired things correctly. Also, see the tests starting at page 45 of the AIM manual. Table 46A of the AIM manual has the resistances of wires that you will add to the expected winding resistances, since you are measuring up top.
It might be as cheap to buy a whole 2801054915 control box -- the one without the run capacitor.
A new C-box is about $70 at a big box store. Replace the box and make sure the right wires are connected (R, Y, B). If it still doesn't work something else is going on.
Thanks will check that tomorrow.Nice.
Running 40-60 PSI, the pressure tank precharge air should be 38 PSI. Set/check that with the pump off and the water pressure at zero.
This is awkward, but...
