Question about Hayward Pool Products Hayward Super Pump

2 Answers

My new Hayward Super Pump is over Amping

My old Hayward is about 5 years old and had no problem. Opened the pool this year and found the original pump was getting hot. Found Loose wires in the breaker. Tighten, and found the pump was still getting hot. Figured the windings were fried and repalced with new exact pump. This pump is still geting hot to the touch. All voltage is stable but the Amps are 8.0 recommends 7.3. We have constant voltage to the circuit with no drop, replaced Breakers as well.

    Any changes in the discharge piping? New valves, add a fountain?



    Are the amps you list from the motor shown as max load amps, sf amps, just amps? What is the service factor (s.f.) on the motor?



    Temp alone is a poor indicator as the motor Hayward uses is thermally protected and will shut off if it gets 'too hot' all on its own.

If the pump runs hotter than it is engineered for the thermal overload will trip. Most newer pumps run hotter due to design changes. It has a 1 yr warranty let it run.

Sounds like the wire gauge (thickness) is to small

Recheck your wire connection on the motor. You likely put both your line wires on the same terminal. If not, try finding a local warranty center for a repair or replacement... http://www.haywardnet.com/locator/

SOURCE: hayward 1hp super pump stops working

Your motor has a thermal protection switch in it the reacts to an overheating condition. Once the motor cools enough it will turn back on. You may be able to have the motor rebuilt for about half the cost of new if it is not damaged to severely. Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for service. If it is damaged beyond repair, you can shop around for a new one. If you would like a quote, contact us at www.arrowpools.net with your pump model number and we can quote it.

DIRTY START switch or the motor is locked up, breaker off ! remove motor from tank body and see if the motor will turn over if it does could be the switch or the motor is shorted witch there is no fix but a new or rebuilt motor. search your area for your local pool pump motor repair guy with free testing..

Hayward Swimming PoPump is 4 years old - when I opened pool, pump


it you've inspected all the wiring for possible shorts, the most likely problem is that the motor has developed a short in the windings. You may have to replace the motor. First check for loose connections and make sure the wiring going to the pump is good. Also, check the start capacitor, should be under the hump or under the end cover on the motor. If it's bloated or leaking, it's bad.
Most likely the winding have a direct short.

You may have been running it on the wrong voltage for 3 years especiallyif you feeding it 120 volts to a 220 setup. Assuming it is getting the right voltage and it clicks off and on you run winding is bad so the start winding cliicks on to bring it up to run speed opens the switch but the run winding isnt there so it repeats the process forever till it fails.

6 years is a good time - you must have house for your pump :)
