other obvious damage.
b. Check that all control box components are se-
curely attached to their mounting surfaces,
and that the electrical connections are tight
and free of corrosion.
c. Compare the amperes, phase, voltage and
hertz indicated on the pump motor nameplate
to the ratings indicated for the control box.

CONTROL BOX INSTALLATION
The control box furnished with the
pump is designed to operate the pump.
The control box provides overload pro-
tection and power
control. Do not con-
nect the pump motor directly to the in-
coming power lines.
The control box is a NEMA Type 10, MSHA certified
The enclosure is not designed to be
watertight, and should not be submerged.
No mounting hardware is furnished with the con-
trol box. Secure the control box vertically on a level
surface, above flood level. The control should be
mounted on a flat surface. If the mounting surface
is not perfectly flat, it may be necessary to use
shims (not supplied) with the enclosure.The box
should be easily accessible to the operator, and lo-
cated close enough to the pump to avoid exces-
sive voltage drop due to cable length.
Failure to mount the control box vertically
on a level surface may affect operation of
the pump controls.
After the box is securely installed, make certain the
front cover latches properly before installing any
