Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Please provide me with the nameplate rating of the motor? Is the motor 240 volts and what is the motor FLA rating? How many amps?

2) What is the size of the circuit breaker? that protects the well pump motor?

I have not heard back from you on my previous questions.

Therefore, I will opt out of the question and place it back to the open board. No need to reply back to me. You will be notified if another expert picks up the question.
