I don't have a solution, but I have experienced the same thing on the Pentair Whisperflo. It was installed when my customer's pool was built in August of 2009. (Your pump is basically a smart Whisperflo.)
The motors are not alike.The whisperflows have been out for over 15 years


Does your pump run on an Intelletouch power center?. I have had had some trouble with the system from the get go, and the Intellechlor chlorine generator had to be disabled out right because it never ran correctly.
If you have the IT system I would suspect that it may be a bug, as my pump is doing the exact same thing, on a system right about the same age as yours (if you have one). Multiple resets and reprograms have had no effect.
If you do not have the IT system I guess it may be possible that the timing programming in the Intelleflo is the same as in the Intelletouch power center, having the same bug. Wish I could be of more help.

We lost our password for our Pentair IntelliFlo VS SVRS pump, part No. 011017. Our serial No. is 03321380901156. Please help us retrieve our password. Thank you.


On the normal vs-3050, you need to reset the whole unit. You do this by holding all 4 speed buttons for 30 seconds. After thi, shut off the power at the breaker. let sit for 2 minutes. Restore power and all setting are reset. I cant find any information about the SVRS model, but it should work the same way.

Low flow error have tried everything that ive been told...at my wits end,unit is only 3 months old...


hello
its either air or blockage

start by cleaning your cartidge with blasting of a garden hose.
spread the individual folds

now take the hose off from the front of the motor
there is a molded plastic screen where the hose slips on
It can get plugged with hair and debris from skimming or not useing the silk basket with the vacuum


check plungers if you have them

now put it all back together

open only top bleeder a few turns on top of cartridge houseing
open bleeder a few turns at motor if your model has one
now open first your outlet side higher one
when water comes out the bleeder open the inlet side high one

now run filter for 30 seconds then close bleeders

Should be good to go

Periodic stop/restart


I had a similar problem for a year and spoke to the pump designer. We ultimately solved it as there was a spring valve in the heat pump I have. ANy type of spring valve is a problem for the intelliflo as the pump is tooo intelligent. When the spring opens and closes it makes the pump think that there is a blockage and it reacts by shutting off.

The solution is to replace all spring valves although I was able to use a manual valve just before the spring valve to reduce the flow so that the spring would not move and thus impact the pump.

Siemens Condensor Dryer E46-38. After a few


Mine is 4 years old and the pump went within 8 months! The dryer has had 6 new pumps in total! It was last fixed 6 months ago and now playing up again! I dont even constantly use my dryer! I am very disappointed with Siemens now, my last dryer lasted me 10 years and it was constantly on the go when my children were young! Here comes, tomorrow I have got to book another repair! No more Siemens for me.

You may have a faulty crank sensor again. Next time it cuts off hot, spray or pour water on it and then try to see if it will crank. These cars had a cutting off problem with ecm #1228253 but most of them would start right back up. If it has that number on it replace it.with #16198264 or newer number. Get a delco and not an aftermarket ecm..

Sharp split system, cutting out


If this is running in A/C mode, then I bet you have a low refrigerant charge. The compressor is dropping out on low suction pressure if it's cutting in and out every 5-10 minutes or so. If it takes hours, then it's likely a different problem.

Reply back and I can help you (been in that business for over 30 years.).

Flair motor shorting out?


There's a thermal cut-off when the unit has overheated. Mine does this quite often and I remedy it by emptying the canister and making sure the filter is clean, especially of lint and things that prevent good air flow.

. Set shuts off after displaying the message "TV will shut down in a few seconds. Please check if the air flow is blocked." After shutdown, it may have a yellow status LED, self diagnostics indicates error code 38. To repair, replace the Lamp Thermal Sensor with the new version, part # 299P313010A. The sensor is located on the Lamp Cartridge Housing. See Service Tip VS-72B. Under rare circumstances, when a replacement thermal sensor is not available, refer to the original Service Tip, VS-72 (page 2 and 3 of VS-72B) If error 3-4 then this maybe problem:. Check to see if the lamp is on when the unit is off (in standby) if it is components on the Power PWB... K9A20 and/or K9A21 are shorted. Also, R9A02 may be open. Possible side effects ... deformed lamp exhaust duct and damaged lamp. Replace PWB-POWER part # 934C228003 and if necessary, Lamp part # 915P049010, Lamp Exhaust Duct part # 642B155010, and/or Lamp Exhaust Duct Cover part # 642B156010. See Service Tip VS-73 2.
