    We got to the bladder because the question stated water came out the bladder’s air valve, meaning water is in the bladder.

    I believe they have to reset the contacts manually, wait a couple of hours, etc. because the pump motor is overheating from the pump running constantly when water is being used. The thermal protection in the motor shuts off when the motor heats up so it doesn’t burn itself up, which is what is slowly happening anyway.

    The pump motor shuts off because the thermal protection, when the motor becomes excessively hot, shuts it off. This continual overheating is detrimental to the life of the motor’s winding insulation and will eventually lead to the motor burning out.
