Water Well Pump Repair

 With the very cold weather here in the south my water well pump stopped working. It was too cold to work on it right away with ice storm so finally when it cleared I was able to examine it. If the pump itsel is OK, then the on off switch is the issue. This time it was something in the little black tube that measures the water pressure in the holding tank. Apparently it ices up from humidity and the switch would not turn on. I cleaned things up, sprayed silicone lubricant and now it works.
 I post it here in case someone needs to know how to quick check and repair a water well pump that stops in an ice storm.
