Now you got me nervous, My pressure switch is in my basement along with pressure tank! But then it is dry and warm!! Just hope it don't get hote like yours. Think I will pop the cover and take a look. It is only 20 years old!!

Glad you didn't have more problems than you did.

Wierd. Just did mine yesterday. The outlet pipe came off the pump (wife says "no water" run like heck to the poompenhausen) Got pipe fixed, plugged back in - gauge goes to 80 psi-unplug. Get new switch, install (boy is threading the fitting into the motor a PITA!) plug in -same results. Brain finally kicked in. The little hose that goes to the back of the switch is on a hose barb at the pump end, remove hose and poke into the barb-plugged solid. Did it once before. Same thing 20+ yrs old-gonna replace the whole thing. Now I have a spare switch. Never ends does it ?

keep it.

I usually keep an extra pressure switch on hand. normally I get 5ys out of them. tis one only lasted 2.

if you buy the same model.. many times you can swap inthe points contacts from a new one to the old one without dismantling the entire thing past some wires and 4 screws. at least the kind I buy .. that's how the fixed side comes out. the moveable side is even easier.. they slide out..

having a spare one means the difference in no water on a sunday christmas morning, or having water.. :) ( btdt! )

in the last 12 ys, I've replaced about ? 3 pressure switches.

1 from ants, one from.. well.. this fire, and another because a set of contacts broke / crumbled under the points area, leaving the electrical contacts floating free when the plastic crumbled. ( probably ant predation on that one too!
