Question about Hayward Super Pump 1 1/2 - Hp for In Ground Pools
My hayward pump is clicking very 2 seconds and then over heats
I'd say you have a problem. The clicking sound is likely a thermal overload from too much current being drawn and the temp rising.
Once it cools off a little it tries again; draws too much currrent, heats up and the thermal overload kicks it off again.
It could blow the breaker as well, it just hasn't yet. Probably because there isn't a short circuit, just thermal overload from too much current for too long. It's a built in safety device internal to the pump motor.
My guess is the pump is bad -- and either the impellers are shot or a bearing is bad.
It would be nice if you could manually turn the pump shaft and see if it feels stiff or it makes unusual grinding noises, but you probably can't get to it.
I'd also guess that a pump repair is not cost effective, 'cause if the pump is that worn, fixing it will only keep it going 'till the next odd-ball thing goes wrong with it.
