What is wrong when the pump runs but there is no water?

Answer

If the pump runs but there is no water there are many problems that might be causing it. The pump may be air locked which can be fixed by stopping and starting the pump several times. The water level in the pump may be too low and can be fixed by waiting for the well to recover. There could be a leak in the drop pipe which requires the user checking for leaks. The pump parts could be worn which would be solved by replacing the worn parts. Other problems include a loose motor shaft, the pump check being jammed or the discharge line check valve was put in incorrectly.
