I have a Goulds shallow well jet water pump. Model Number J15 5 Serial Number CO162251. It was running fine for years. It just stopped working - no previous problems or weird sounds. when we turn the electrical breaker on it just hums/buzzes - nothing
in the motor tries to move or turn - no sounds from motor at all. Checked power at pressure switch and it's getting 230 volts. What should I Do next?

Did you check both Line and Load on the switch?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yes I Checked both line and load and both have power. When I have the breaker on it will buzz for about 5 seconds and then the breaker will trip itself off. After the breaker trips a couple of times in a row it trips off quicker - about on a second before tripping.
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 2 years ago
Swap the breaker with another to eliminate breaker failure. Also check for signs of arcing on the jaws.
