Check motor with hand after it stops for excessive heat. Thermo coupler shuts motor off if overheating, to protect windings. Bad motor bearing can cause overheating, if so should hear bearing noise when running.
Also check start capacitor, by removing and checking with ohm meter, or plug in oposite terminals of capacitor to charge. Place rubber glove on hand, and contact two oposite terminals with screwdriver should produce a small spark.

After the heater cycle runs the circulation pump runs forever i have to shut the breaker to stop it

It sounds to me as if the cycle for filter may be set to 24 hours per day. Is the tub staying hot?
Look at your manual and see if there is a way to set the filter cycle. You may need to reset it to the filter cycle you want again.

Intake valve make a vibrating noise after a few minutes

From what you are explaining it sounds like the pump is taking on air, which I have seen when the water level is just a tad low & the pump creates a "vortex" at the skimmer box & air is sucked in. Double check the "flap" at the skimmer to make sure it is working properly (not stuck upright)

Low flow code 90

hello first try bleeding the system.
Unscrew the cap above the cartridge just enough so water and air come out. Continue to run the pump for a few minutes to help air escape then close the valve.
If this does not work then take the electro cell apart and spray a hard jet of water over the flow sensor and even soak it in vinegar if there is a lot of calcium buil up on it.

Put it back together and follow the top directions again.

Also it wouldnt hurt to clean your filter cartridge I clean mine every day better yet get a second one. A dry filter to start works better than spraying one and putting it back in. So while you put in a dry one and use it the second one is drying and ready for use the next day.

Hmm, that's an odd one. It could be either a fault with the PCB or the pump.

The first thing to check is the voltage to the twin speed pump. If that's ok the motor is probably the cause of the fault.

As always, with anything electrical you need to be very careful with what you're doing and if you're unsure seek professional help.

Try backwashing again, this cleaner will pick up enough dirt in a couple of hours to clog the filter. Untill the pool is clean you need to backwash and check the baskets, (skimmer and pump pot) Probally two to three times in the first day, then once after a couple of days. After that you can get back to a regular routine.

The pump on my system stopped working for a few days and now the water is really green. Would the pump clear the water back up when its running again or do I need to add something to the water to help it....

Get the pump going and add 3 jugs of liquid chorline and let the pump run overnight. The next day clean the filter and add 2 more jugs. This will get you into shape until you can test the water and get exact needs from your local pool supply store.
