    Hey Jim,
    Do you have a submersible pump?
    And you're certain that you have power to the control box?
    Then several things could be wrong.
    1) You could have open windings in the motor.
    2) The water table could have fallen and you're pulling air.
    3) If a surface pump there could be a leak or open in the suction line that's losing suction.
    All things that you should be checking. Good luck, Tom
