Pumps should not be connected to GFCI circuits they do pull a lot of juice at start time and this causes your GFCI to trip

It sounds like the motor shaft is stuck. The back end of the motor has an end cap that comes off so you can access the end of the motor shaft. Try this with the power off; Remove the cap (center rear of the motor),Using an open ended 9/16 wrench you should be able to turn the shaft back and forth. A motor that has sat for a while will sometimes act like yours did. A nudge with the wrench usually breaks it free. Remove your wrench and turn pump on. If it still won't start the motor may be defective.

It is probably only getting 115V from your circuit which will cause it to overheat and trip the overload yet it will not draw high current which would trip the breaker. Can you confirm your line voltage with a meter? If it is suppoed to be a 230V line then look for a bad leg of power, again, checking each leg to ground using a meter.

Very possibly a bad GFI. GFI's are cheap and worth replacing if in question. also might try hooking up directly to another source and see if it trips a breaker

The pump comes factory set for 230v. Power to the motor is 115v so I switched the jumper as indicated. The jumper is set on 2 posts with an arrow pointing to 230v. I moved it to 1 post and the arrow now...


CHECK YOUR BREAKER IT MIGHT BE THAT YOU ARE 230V .. IF IT IS A WIDE BREAKER ITS 230 OR IF IT IS A SLIM BREAKER ITS 115V , A VOLT METER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND.. REMEMBER TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE FIXIT GUY ! THANKS JAY

If by "trips the breaker" you mean the GFI then you are leaking current to ground, GFI's trip when there is an imbalance between the current going to the motor on the HOT side and returning from the motor on the NEUTRAL side, if it is tripping the GFI it is likely the sign of a failing motor.

Switching my hayward pool pump from 230v to 115v. I was told i could just move the jumper, line up the arrows for 115 and be fine but my gfi keeps tripping out?


Setting the pump for 115V wont by itself cause the trip. There is either a ground in the circuit or the GFI is bad. You may want an electrician to test any further than this.

Pump trips breaker


If the seals are damaged, water will leak into motor section and cause GFI to trip and yet the pump will seem that it is running fine if plugged into a non-GFI receptacle
