My Hayward pump was very noisy but now trips the breaker. I can turn the impeller from the rear pretty easily.

Hayward is synonymous with junk. Let me guess. It's been in service for about two or so years when the noise started. Eventually the motor will burn out. I've gone through two motors and a diffuser on my Hayward pump. It's already making noise again.

If my hayward pool vac (AquaBug) is always connected when the pump is on (4 hrs/day), do I need (will I benefit) from a variable speed or 2-speed motor? Or, will I do fine just by downsizing from 1.5 HP to...

Probably go for the 2 speed, manufacturers often embellish on the hp ratings of pumps, you will definitely see more energy savings from a 2 speed. Just stay away from hayward, easy to work on for service tech's for break alot. Go with Pentair or Jandy they are worth the money.

Powerflo matrix pump is humming not pumping

I think you have a start/run capacitor issue or your impeller has spun its center out. Check the impeller first. If the impeller is intact, take your motor to your full service pool professional for repair.

This June, I had to replace my strainer housing on my Hayward Power-Flo Matrix pump. It cracked in cold weather before I remembered to remove it. On installing a replacement, I noticed that the pump showed...

One or more of a couple issues is at play here. First would be the seal replacement. Even if you used the correct seal if you touched the surfaces or failed to install it properly it can and will leak. Second, inspect the housing around the seal fit and the stem of the impeller for cracks. A hairline crack is enough when placed under pump operating pressure to allow a leak. Somewhere in there is your solution.

Sounds like the motor is not turning. Check your impeller and motor to see if it spins freely by hand.

If not then you either have something stuck in the pump or the bearings are bad. If it is freely spinning, check your start capacitor
