You could try taking starter solenoid apart and drying / cleaning it.
Spray heaps of WD40 around and inside pump motor (when motor not conected to mains!).
Turn pump impella by hand or screwdriver to free up pump.

My pool man stated my pump clogged and tripping the breaker. After trouble shooting we find its the motor we tested at different sources and find the same issue the breaker trips. Is the capacitor


Might be but unlikely I would have thought if the rcd is tripping. That would indicate a current leak to ground which is very unlikely to be caused by a dodgy capacitor..

If the mcb is tripping immediately it indicates a large overload such as might be caused by shorted turns in the motor windings (or bad wiring).

The mcb might trip after a short time with a faulty capacitor - the usual sign the capacitor has failed is a humming noise and the motor turning very slowly or not at all, usually the latter.

There are some variables depending whether the capacitor is just a start capacitor or a combination start and run type.

My hayward pool pump not working,forget to close the air vent before pump started and is water allover the pump,what to do?


Water sprayed on the pump occasionally shouldn't hurt it but it might cause a ground fault circuit interupter (GFCI) to trip. If you turn on the pump and literally nothing happens then most likely the the GFCI has tripped. If it hums then this is a different issue. If you have a volt meter you can open the timer box and check whether power is available to the timer. If no power is available in the timer then it confirms that the pump is probably ok. Checking your circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker or finding a tripped GFCI then either one can be reset and your pump will probably run without a problem.

I hope this helps.

Where the wire goes into the pump there is a o ring thatis probably leaking and any sort of water the motor might be getting is tripping the breaker. You probably have it plugged into a gfi and it sense very low amounts of water, and trips, You can determine by plugging it into a regular outlet and it should work. But definently fix the oring at the point of entry on the pump

Rule H53sp-24 pool cover pump trips GFI breaker


GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.

I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.

Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.

Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).
