I have the same model pump. When I had it put in, the installer said that the auto prime function had some bugs in the software. He suggested changing the setting to 3 minute prime. You can change it in the configuration menu. I assume that your pump is actually priming and not running dry. Hope that helps. Please reply if you need more help. Good luck!

SOURCE: have hayward pool model 712 2 no idea how to start, prime, etc.

what I do isto take the top off the filter collectot just before the motor, insert your hose and fill the line from the strainer basket to the motor basket.let it runn for acouple of minutes.quikly take out hose and screw on basket cover,turn on motor and wait about one minute.you will see pool water start to volume to motor and filter.You will have to fix the shorting out of the motot first though.since I do not know how the unit is configured ,it's hard to say.

SOURCE: NOT FILTERING, NO SUCTION, CHANGE SAND,,,SINCE DAY ONE..WRONG HP?

You are correct. Your lines are extremely small for this system and the pump is to small for this system. You are going to have to do a total upgrade. from the pump to all the lines. I know this is bad news, but it is a common problem for system that where put in more then 10 years ago

I have a Hayward sp3400vsp. The pump runs all night some times, the screen say is priming, it will shot off manually, and it wont do it all the time. help??


Sounds like the pump is sensing that there is a problem with water flow on the suction side.

Could be caused by air being sucked into the system. Do you notice air in the strainer chamber? Or bubbles coming from the inlets in the pool?

Could also be caused by something clogging or restricting the suction line.

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

What is broken in your motor? Don't count it out until you have your pool place give it a check. If it is dead, get a 1 1/2 Hayward Super Pump just like the one you have.

Try taking the pool filters cartridge out and following these steps to make sure that it is installed properly.
1. Clean debris from bottom of filter tank.
2. Replace element evenly on the collector hub in bottom of the filter body.
3. Place lid evenly on filter body and turn Easy-Lok™ ring clockwise until the safety latches engage securely.
4. Close and secure drain plug (located at the base of filter body).
5. Open air relief valve (Turn lever to left).
6. Open valves (Optional suction & return valves).
7. Prime and start the pump.
8. Once air has escaped the filter and a steady stream of water is flowing from the air relief valve, close the air relief valve and note the pressure gauge reading.

I think your impeller may be stuck OR your start capacitor has failed. Your pump is going off on over load because it cannot turn or cannot start.

My Hayward Super II Pool Pump isn't priming. The motor will start, and hum for a few seconds but then it just shuts off. The motor will try again after a minute or two only to shut off again. The cycle...


Pull the six bolts on the back of the pump and pull the motor and pump housing back. remove the difuser and try spinning the impeller. If it wont spin you may need a new motor. If you pull the wires. You can find a motor shop in your phone book and they can rebuild it for you usually for about 100 bucks. Or replace it with new for a lot cheaper than what your talking. Good luck.

Looking for a diagram on a hayward pool pump electrical wiring model super 11


What specifically are you looking for (beside the fact you asked for a diagram)?

It should be setup for 220 Volts ... the only thing inside is a start cap.

Can you tell me more? I maintain 5 2 and 1 1.5 hp such pumps.

Pump is leaking from the bottom what do I need to do to fix it? Only leaks when running, also looses prime when turned off.


The mechanical seal. We sell them for about $4 or you can get them locally. The superpump uses a 201 seal.
