You are correct the capacitor is only used during starting the motor. I assume the motor is getting hot and shutting off. Check the discharge side, filters etc for obstructions, it appears something is causing the pressure to go a bit high.

The wiring diagram should be on the junction box cover. You can go on line and download the manual with this information. There are a lot of A.O. Smith motors out there.

How long has it been since you have the new motor installed? Did it work after the job was completed? Very possible that the starter circuit has failed, usually when it comes on and runs but overheats and stops, the starter and run circuits are both engaged and that causes it to overheat. If you can read the wiring diagram on the motor and make sure it it correctly wired, you may save it if it is a simple loose wire. Otherwise it sounds like you will have to have whoever changed it come back and do a warranty repair.

The impeller is most likely set on a tapered shaft it is not easy to get off . You may need to get a puller to get it off. You can try adding some heat to the area with a hair dryer, don't use a torch. Be gentle.

What are the pumps for and what kind of remote control are you using?

A.O. Smith... | Answered on Aug 23, 2009


Make sure that the supplied voltage matches your motor's setup. Most well pumps can either be configured to run on 120v or 220v. If your pump is set to 220v, and you are running 110v to it, it will run slower. Check that, and repost. I'll check back, and will help in any way thet I can.

Leaking from the stem or handle 90% of the time means all you need is a new cartridge or new O rings or seals, depending on the model of your faucet.
Phister has a warranty https://www.pfisterfaucets.com/parts-support/warranty-information
and if they are like other faucet manufacturers with a similar warranty, just take the bad part(s) to your local authorized Pfister dealer and they will exchange them over the counter. Otherwise, you can contact Pfister through their website.

There are a lot of variables. Are you on a shallow well pump? It sounds like the well doesn't make much water. Check your well tank pressure. With 0 psi of water (drain the pressure) There should be 2 psi of air less than than the start up. If the pump is set to start at 30 psi, there should be 28 psi of air in the tank. It sounds to me like either the tank is shot, or the pump doesn't make much water. If you leave a faucet on while putting air in the tank and air comes out the faucet, then, the bladder is shot.
