220 volt wiring trouble shooting?

I have 220 volt well pump that I have had problem with. I understand the black and white wire each carry 110 volts and the copper is ground wire. I discovered the copper ground wire was twisted together and was arching so I fixed the wire with conectors. I found when I disconnected the wires in the well house they checked out okay from the well house to the pump with ohm meter. But when I reconnected them and turned the power on at the breaker it did not matter if the switch to turn on the pump was on or off the pump ran till it got right pressue and shut off. Any ideas how to find the problem or what it is??
they have this wired with a double pole breaker making a 240 volt branch circut and the switch appears to be a 4 way

First off why do people come here and answer electrical question when they have no clue what they are talking about.

I am assuming that your pump it self will be a straight 240V load. It is fine for them to run a 2 conductor(black and white) to this pump. In this situtaion you are supposed to permentaly change the colour of the white wire to some other colour(black or red would be the best choice) this is usally done with electrical tape.

Now if the pressure switch is a 120V load then there should have been a 3 wire ran out ther(black, red, and white) The black and red would be hot and give you 240V. Then you would tie either the black and white, or red and white to the pressure switch for the 120V.

My first place to look would be at the switch. It may look like a 4way but it is a 2P switch for 240V loads. On that switch 2 of the screws should one colour, and the other 2 a differnt colour. Your line in from the breaker would go to two of the screws(the same colour ones) and then the load out would go to the other screws and then to the pump.
