Question about Hayward 1hp Power Flo Matrix Above Ground Pool Pump # Sp1592
I have a Hayward power-flo Matrix pump and can not get the top to come off. I am turning it in the right direction but can not get the top to rotate. Prior to putting my pump together back in May it was moving freely in fact I even greased the rubber o-ring prior to attaching the hose. Could it be to much preasure causing it not to turn? Any ideas?
Too Much Pressure????
Are you trying to remove lid when the pump is on? NO, NO, NO
If not, then good! If you have valves before and after the equipment, then close them. Then remove the small 1/4" drain plug to empty the pot. Then try removing the lock ring and open it up.

suction side leak... your grabbing air somewhere in the suction line.... take a hose at low pressure and with the pump running put it over various parts of the suction line... including your pump lid... if the problem goes away and you have no more air in the pump then you know what your problem is

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
It is likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.
If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.
As a rule it is not worth 'rewiring' these motors as the cost to replace them is so low.

Please post the model and serial number from the motor. The number you have is the part number Hayward assigned to the AOSmith motor on your pump. I'll need AOSmith's info to get you pricing on the correct switch. Do you need the stationary only or the stationary and govenor?
