Pool pump not working

Hi, I bought a Flotec Submersible Pool/Spa Cover Drainer (Model # FPOS1790PCA) about 2 months ago, worked great, suddenly it stopped..we cleaned out the leaves and debri from the filter and checked the hose for a clog but it was clear. We also made sure the outlet was live. When we plug it in the red light doesn't come on, I tried resetting it. Is there a fuse or something? Thanks for your help. :) I don't know what category to if you can't help me can you suggest someone else?

I purchased and installed this model pump (FPOS1790PCA). The first couple of times there was water on the pool cover, the pump seemed to work fine. I have several inches of rain water on the cover...

You may want to check with Flotec first since many of the manufacturers handle warranty claims directly instead of the store being involved. If the unit falls within the stores return period then just take it back and excahange/return it...if not, Flotec is at:

Select warranty from the drop down menu and go from there.

I have a Flotech FPOS1790PCA Pool pump that will run for 15 seconds and then shut do I get it to stay running?

I have the same model and found that it frequently shuts off when it gets too much pine needles clogging the strainer.
I have unscrew the bottom "skirt" almost once a month and clean it out.

Good luck!

Pump keeps turning off

this pump needs about 21/4" of water to operate properly, this pump will not remove all the water from the cover and will cycle on and off as it looses prime. If the motor turns completely off, it may be a an issue with low line voltage. you can try using a lager gauge extension cord to try and fix it, otherwise have an electrician test the line voltage.

Here is a pdf of the manual:

Low water flow

sounds like air is trapped in the system somewhere. that is why any pump will surge. check the lines going in to make sure it isn't sucking air somewhere along the way and make sure the discharge line is clear so it can pump out fully.
