SOURCE: hot tub pump will not

This can be one of three issues.
1.  Starting capacitor as you have suggested.  You can take the capacitor to a motor shop and have it tested or test it yourself if you have a meter that will check capacitance. 2.  Low/High voltage.  If the voltage is not at the proper levels (10% up or down) then the unit may have a hard time starting. 3.  Something might be binding up the impeller.  Disconnect the power and carefully check to see if the shaft of the motor spins freely. 4.  A short in the windings.  If none of these seem to be the problem, then you will probably need to replace the motor.

SOURCE: Pump will not work in high speed

Clean the relay contacts on the board. Cut the power, ofcourse. Also, try switching the hot wire on the low side of the pump to the high side to rule out the pump.

SOURCE: pump stops running on high speed

You have a magnetek motor and it is overheating and cycling its thermal overload. A local electric motor repair shop may be able to fix it however it will likely need to be replaced. It is to costly to repair the motor if the damage is in the windings.

Assuming at that low a horsepower it is 115V, the likely replacement motor is a catalog #BN37. We sell it for $157. You are usually better off replacing the seal when you replace the motor and most Jacuzzi pumps are either a 200 or 1000. They should be around $5.

SOURCE: Motor is hooked up correctly according to

You have 220v running into your motor, the red and the plack are in most cases the same 110v line and what your calling a white netural is a common line. In other words the second half of your 220v line. If your red and black are the two opposing 110v lines that make up your 220v and they are put on the motor and turned on they short aginst each other and blow the breaker. One of your 220v lines should come into your hi -low switch and then split to your high and low on the pump. The other half of your 220v line will go to the common or what your calling nuteral. The difference is a netural completes a 110v circut and a common completes the 220v circut it will take to run the motor. One of the splits will complete the low speed circut and the other will complete the high speed circut. You need to check your voltage comming into the spa, the way the spa is wired (110v-220v), and how the motor is wired (110v-220v). For your spa this will be in your owners manuel or on a scematic inside a panel or door and is quite often a plug you change from one spot to another. On your motor will have a scematic on the back of the motor that will tell you haw to adjust the wireing already in place on the wire board of the motor. This may sound deep but if all your voltages are set the same and your high and low are the same leg of power, this should fix your problem.

Aqua Flo Flo Master won't start on low speed


Water flow error on hot tub means low water flow. This is not enough water flow to turn the system on.
Some motors do have a start capacitor on them. you can certainly check that or take it to your local motor repair shop and they can check that for you.

3 hp hot tub motor Sta-Rite tub has two speed low for filtering and high for jets low starts and then stops high speed works fine


make sure you make a wiring diagram or just unplug the plug from the mother board and search your area for your local pool pump repair guy with free testing. these are a high $$$ motor and not a good one to practice on, save it for a pro ! it might just be a dirty switch or need to be reset I don't charge any thing for that, and while your there ask him how to take better care of your $$$ pump ?

The fault is most likely to be the condensor. They can and do fail at an early age.

You don't need to dismantle the pump, on the rear of the pump you'll find a slot on the motor shaft which can be turned with a screwdriver.

If you've only just reffiled the hot tub it could also be an airlock.

I have a 2004 great lakes hot tub with a balboa controler. My hot tub heats up fine when the pump runs on high but the temp light never comes on when the pump runs in low.


check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

My 2 speed jandy pool pump is over heating


you may either have a bad start/run capacitor for the high speed side or bad supply voltage feeding the high speed side. If there are no loud bearing noises, it should just be either of those two problems.

Jacuzzi hot tub will not shut off


I take it for granted that you know when the tub is in cycle mode for water circulation, ( the tub will do this every 4 to 8 hours unless programed otherwise). If it is truly going into the low speed on the pump, the problem lies in the circuit board. The double click you hear is the relay for the pump turning off and then on again. This is a costly problem to diagnose as circuit boards start at 200.00 and go up. If it is the relay, the only way to replace one is to replace the circuit board.

Installed new 2 speed motor olny low works


IF the filter is clean, then your problem is electrical. First make sure you are not using an extenesion cord. These pumps do not work well with a cord over 6ft long. Then make sure that the pump is on a dedicated outlet. No Microwaves, computers competing for power. Most likely the pump is not able to draw enough power and is shutting off.

My LG washer, model wm2277hw gives me the OE on the display. I have cleaned out all the possible areas where it could be clogged around the pump, but still makes a bad noise when it gets to the rinse...


You may have a broken pump impeller - you will have to order the whole pump (the filter on this machine allows BIG stuff through and it can ultimately damage the impeller)

Have you run this through diagnostics and determined if it is the drain or recirculating pump?

To run diagnostics:

Press and hold the "Spin Speed" and "Soil Level" buttons at the same time - then hit the power on the button

All lights should display - Press the Start Pause button throught the following cycles:

1 - Tumble clockwise
2 - Low speed spin
3 - High speed spin
4 - Prewash inlet (let it run for a few seconds to put some water in the tub)
5 - Wash Inlet
6 - Hot Water inlet
7 - Bleach inlet
8 - tumble counter clockwise
9 - Heater
10 - Circulation pump (see if your noise occurs here)
11- Drain pump (let this run until the tub is empty)
12 - Power off, finished

Once you figure out which pump, order the correct replacelement

Pump is running ever 5 minutes. The heat in the


Sounds as if the 'mode' for the tub is set to sense the temperature of the water. see if there is a setting on the control box to a 'timed' setting for filtering and heating instead of controlled by the temperature setting. the problem is the the control box is away from the water and when it calls for heat it is because the water is cooler there than in the hot tub. so when it calls for heat and the water starts to circulate it gets the hot water from the body of the hot tub and then shut down because it senses the 'hot water'. make sense?
