Could be an intermittent under-voltage event temporarily boosting the startup current. Intermittent problems are the worst.

At startup you have 100% slip so no current flows in the rotor. Inrush is all stator driven. So that means you get lower current. That’s the whole point of why star-delta and electronic soft starts work.

I missed where the OP listed the starter. I just saw the breaker info

Well the job got concealed because another pump clogged up and had to be addressed yesterday. They had to remove the pump and take it to their shop, so all I did was disconnect the wires at the pecker head.

On another note, I wear the crapest cloths I have and many pairs of latex gloves and I always still manage to get that black ugly whatever stuff on me.

No matter what, if you EVER get even the tiniest cut or puncture wound when working in that stuff, stop whatever you are doing, clean it out and sterilize the crap out of it, DO NOT keep working and deal with it later. A friend of mine nicked his knee coming up a wet well ladder, finished the job before dealing with it and they ended up having to amputate his leg to save his life!

Im glad i learnt mechanics before becoming a turd wrestler. One of the first lessons in mechanics is never to touch your face with your hands. You also learn how to use tools as hands.

I would still rather work with crap then sulfuric acid, caustic, chlorine, fluoride and a bunch of other stuff you come across in food grade plants.

With proper planning you can stay clean and keep your tools clean. We keep a plastic box on the truck and any dirty tool goes in the box to be deal with later. We also carry trash bags, small water tank, disposable gloves, hand soap and disinfectant spray.

Ain't that the truth from more standpoints than one. Then again, I don't have the butt crack for the job anyway...

When you get good at these jobs, you can tell what people ate for dinner

My dad says when you are in the army and you are told to dig latrines and you’re good at it... you will dig latrines.
