My aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump runs warm and stops after a few seconds after i switch it on then goes on after a few minutes And this continues. Why


Thermal Overload Switch: Something is creating an overload on the pump. Once it is overworked, the motor will overheat. This will be sensed by the T.O. switch. Once the switch senses that the motor has cooled, it will start again.
Reasons for overload:
  • Bearings no longer spinning freely & without restriction
  • Foreign debris in the volute, jamming against the impeller
  • Failing T.O. switch
Good Luck

Will not start...where is the motor thermal overload switch


A motor thermal overload is usually mounted internally in the motor and is not replaceable. You might have a problem with your door switch though, because if the door switch is not making proper contact, the dryer thinks that the door is still open and it will not start. I would start with that and go from there. That will also be a less expensive repair. Hope this helps!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse (part#7 in this picture). When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test the fuse for continuity before replacing, if the fuse is fine then check the thermostat (part#8) and thermal cut off (part#9) in the above picture. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Mixer shuts off when I whip potatoes


It apparently has a thermal overload switch . When it warms up it shuts off.. Only remedy is to buy instant potatos. Just kidding, the thermal switch needs replacing.

What is a thermal overload switch? We had a storm and lost power in the house. The fuse did not blow but the next day the pump would not work. We changed the fuse as a precaution. I believe the thermal...


A TOC is a bi-metal strip in a canister , they are normally placed on the motor windings and in most cases are auto-resetting.

All they do is sense the temperature of the windings and when they exceed the limit of the TOC (Which is set by the motor maker) they flip the Bi-Metal strip and open circuit the supply.

Normally once the motor has cooled down the strip relaxes back to the original position and the supply is restored.

It is not a standard practice to have a push button re-set however on that will depend on the makers whims

What you may have is a Thermal Fuse which melts if the motor gets too hot and you then need to strip the unit down to both check it and if possible replace it.

By looking at the rating plate on the motor you may find the manufacturer and approach them for a data sheet

CLEANER SWITCHES ITSELF OFF AFTER A FEW MINUTES USE. IF LEFT FOR SOME TIME, IT WILL START AGAIN FINE, THEN AFTER A FEW MINUTES MORE USE , IT WILL SWITCH OFF AGAIN.


check all filters, if they can be washed do so, if not clean or replace. next check for a clog in the machine and in the hoses. the machine as a thermal device that if it senses an overload or getting to hot, the machine will shut itself off for safety resons.

Oven not working


I had the same problem. At the back of the stove is a plastic cover with thermal overload written on it.
Switch off your power.Remove the cover, pull out the two luggs and connect the two luggs straight to each other. Make sure the oven knobbs are in the off position. turn on the power. If your oven clock etc. comes on the thermal overload is faulty and needs to be replaced. It is fixed to the stove by a screw from the inside of the oven, so open the door and remove screw to remove thermal overload at the back of oven. Take sample to electrical shop and replace. DO NOT USE OVEN WITHOUT THERMAL OVERLOAD.

Dryer starts then shuts off


it seem like your motor could be faulty (overheating) causing the thermal overload to open, stopping the motor after awhile it will cool down and the thermal will reset, if this the case the bearings or the windings could be faulty
