No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.

If your generator puts out 240 volts and has the amperage to handle the pump load, I believe it can. Your generator installer could answer that.

Their should be a breaker dedicated to just the pump and you can shut it off there.

The clicking you hear inside the little box is the contacts that send power to the pump. They have probably gotten corroded to the point they would not make contact. By kicking on and off you probably loosened some carbon, it was still making a poor connection and carboned up again. Only this time causing the points to stick open (so no clicking) You can take this switch apart and give it a good cleaning then reset the points. Or you can get a new switch and install it on the system. Ether way be sure that the power is off for these operations as this is all the power going to the pump.

I believe sediment filter inline would take care off this.The only thing I can think of is that you have the wrong kind of sediment filter on your line. You may want to check what the size of the screen is, or what the micron size the filter will take out. Too big of filter will let the small **** through, but too little will plug up super fast. Sometime you have to take the good with the bad until what ever caused the disturbance in your well is done.

Replace your starting compassator or starter relay.

LS45 is a rebranded Toro. The following should be close enough (for free).

It has a safety interlock relay, start relay, kill relay, starter solenoid and 4 fuses.

Engine crank requires;
  1. Brake ON
  2. Operator in seat
  3. PTO OFF
If starter/solenoid is good, begin at the "S" terminal of the ignition switch and work you way towards the solenoid using a simple auto test light or DMM.

Likely it is flooded. Try starting without choke. Move control lever into choke position, then back to start position. This sets a high idle throttle/no choke. Don't touch throttle or it will drop throttle position from high idle to idle. Set decompress and pull starter cord no more than 3x.

You may have to remove spark plug and pull start cord several times to get the excess fuel out of the cylinder and crankcase. Dry spark plug with compressed air or starter fluid. Reinstall spark plug. Pull starter cord no more than 3x. If it doesn't fire, remove plug and inspect tip. If completely dry, no fuel. If wet either no spark or it has flooded again, check for spark.
