When this happened, it would only run for a second or so and then shut off right away. I checked for dripping faucets, but they were all securely closed. I also checked as best I could for leaks in any water lines, but couldn't find any. Any idea why this happens?
x2 on the check valve leak.

If you looked at an exploded view of the pump, you see the inlet and outlet check valves are most often an umbrella style. Outlet check valve holds line pressure as does your city water check valve. If you see no leakage from city water fill (or its capped off)and none from your faucets, connections or terlit, that is most likely what you're looking at. Depens how annoying that seepage is to you whether you fix it or ignore it

Very small leak somewhere in the system and sooner or later you will find some water dripping out. In my case some yahoo put a screw through a water line while installing an access panel at the factory. Finally discovered where when water dripped out of the front cap!
