Need to know what brand of pump and the model number however with that said it will either be the the switch located in the motor or the control box that pump plugs into that will be the problem. Not very often is it the button on the top lip of the tub, but sometimes it is.
Can you get us the name of the pump? Model number of the pump?
Any information off the controls?

SOURCE: Jacuzzi jets & heater,won't stay running,need electrical schemati

Actually you can ground them to the copper pipe...any piece of metal material that comes in contact with the earth...hence the word water supply line or if you ran conduit..and a receptacle box (metal...) you could ground it to that....'

I hope this helps...good luck...thanks for rating my effort...the Fang.

SOURCE: high speed on pump motor just hums then trips

possibly trying to draw more power than the breaker and wiring are rated for.. check maximum amperage draw from motor, then check breaker.

If breaker is rated lower than High speed amperage draw, then have a qualified electrician install proper size of wiring and breaker.

If not, then the high speed coil of motor may be defective, check for warranty of unit.

I have a Polaris PB4-60 booster pump, less than 3yrs old. I turned the pump and left. When I got back 1hr later, the pump was not running. Breakers had been tripped. Each time we reset the breakers and...

If the device that tripped is a ground fault circuit interupter (GFCI) breaker or receptacle then it is likely caused by 5mA or more of leakage current to ground within the motor. If what tripped is a circuit breaker then there are likely shorted turns within the motor. Usually either of this issues requires a new motor.

If you are not wanting to turn wrenches yourselfthen my best suggestion is to bring it to Leslies Pool Supplies and they oftencan put it right for the price of the parts while you watch (they might not have some parts in stock).

I hope this helps.

Pump has power at back of motor and I can turn shaft at the back of pump. It is not running.

this motor has a run capacitor, have it tested. search your area for your local pool pump motor repair guy with free testing.. ask him how to remove it, caps can hold a charge and make for a nasty surprise.. THIS IS IF THE MOTOR HUMS OR MAKES A BUZZ NOISE if not, you will need to check the power at THE BACK OF THE MOTOR. no power check, timer, breaker, main breaker ..

Did you try an electric motor rebuilder? $500 seems too high to repair a motor. Motors have either a capacitor or dual windings to get them started and it sounds like yours has failed. Get the numbers off the MOTOR and call a motor rebuilder in your area for pricing.

the button is an air switch, check the simple things first. your tub is connected to a gfi plug or breaker, try reseting the breaker is the air hose from the button to the pump connected,is it split or have a hole in it. with the access door removed pump the button and listen for an air leak, if so remove hose just by pulling on it, most hardware stores carry the same hose and sell it by the foot.

I guess it overheated and it stopped working. I cannot find manual to know how to reset and test it to work. Can you tell me how to do this? My e-mail is: Thank you

First, check the breaker box to see if the breaker for the whirlpool has kicked out. It may be a ground fault breaker with a small reyd button to reset it. If you know that the circuit is getting power, then you need to find the motor which runs the pump. Sometimes these are built into the wall and can only be accessed by tearing out sheetrock walls. Once you get to the motor, look for the wire that is running into the motor. There will be a small red button sticking out near the point where the wire enters the motor. Push this button in. If you have power and it has tripped out, this will restart the motor. If you have let this run without water in the tub, it may be all over for this motor. If the pump itself overheated from lack of water, it may have seized up thus burning the motor out as well.

Dishwasher will not drain

If you can close the door, turn the control to drain and, can hear the motor running; you have a clog under the pump screen in the back of the Dish Washer preventing the pump impeller from turning
if you hear nothing: reset the house circuit breaker.
to fix: while the DW is on turn off the DW house circuit breaker then remove the pump screen and, remove the broken glass etc. from the pump then: repower and, test.

I have a 919.167780 2 Stage Twin V Portable

two different problems here! first when it trips the breaker and you try to reset the breaker and not turn off the compressor on its pressure switch it does not unload the air off the head of the pump when you try to start it again,,, ( when it shuts off normally you hear the air drain near the switch,, this unloads the pump to restart)

The most likely reason it is tripping the breaker is that the second stage (smaller cylinder) is not doing the work it needs to do and the first stage (bigger cylinder) is pumping more now!,,,, higher pressure on this side makes the motor work harder.

I would advise rebuilding both sides to get the pump back up to correct running levels it had new.

Pump starts and immediately trips breaker

if it buzzes but doesnt actually turn then check the starting capacitor .. when bad, the motor wont know which way to turn and will just buz and get hot until a thermal breaker or external overload breaker trips .. that should happen in about 5 or 10 seconds .. the same thing will happen if the pump is jammed .. make sure it turns freely ..
