Pump won't run

Hi, New member. I'm not an electrician but I can wire simple stuff. I had power into the top of my Batrow PSR 123 Pump Start Relay. No power coming out to the pump. There is a little "breaker button" on the relay and when I pushed it the pump would run. I assumed that the relay was defective so I replaced it with a new one today. Same result. Power in, None out. Breaker button runs the pump.

Any ideas where I go next?

Thanks for any help.

What controller are you using? It happens that the Batrow pump relay has a fairly heavy current requirement, and some controllers might not be compatible with it. If you could exchange it for an Irritrol SR-1 relay, your problems might be solved.
