Question about Smith AO Pool Pump Motor
Pump overheats and trips off internally - breakers do not trip. Pump cools and restarts and runs for 5 minutes then trips off again.
Internal thermal over loads in motor are working properly! how old is the motor? double check all vavles on the intake and discharge line to make sure that they are open? sounds like the pump is pushing against what is known as dead head pressure. obstruction in discharge line! if valves are ok you can take the jet covers off (the piece that helps direct flow of water) which will relieve some of the pressure should allow it to run without tripping tgermal overloads. if none of this works replace motor!!
