No, unless you are switching it. This sounds like a thermal overload problem. If the motor is fan cooled, it may be blocked or clogged with grass. If the motor has become wet inside this can also trip overload. That may be a shock hazard, so the source of water must be found and/or the motor must be replaced.

Pool pump turns on, starts clicking then turns off


It appears that the motor is overheating, and then it turns off. There is a thermal overload switch that will turn off the heater, and when it cools back down, the motor will turn back on.

A few things to check:
  • Debris in the impeller
    • If so, remove it, this is causing the motor to overwork
  • Was motor / impeller recently changed?
    • if motor was downsized from the one prior, it is overworking, because the impeller is still sized larger.
    • if impeller was upsized with an undersized motor, the motor is overworking
  • Is the motor louder than normal?
    • The bearings are probably failing and the creating the motor to labor.
Good luck

Is a knob that won't tighten on hayward pump normal wear and tear?


it is possible that the knob was overtightened. check the slipping knob to see if there is a crack in the shaft. the other option is that it is stripped.
either way, it will not be considered normal wear but you should be able to find a replacement knob at your local store

Sand filter overheats


your pump shaft must be tight to turn , this could be caused by improper pump off season storage/or normal worn out or your sand charge is getting thru the filter , either one spells disaster for pump

How to use backwash to waste


When the filter get clogged the pressure in the filter increases and there is less water flow returning to the pool.
If your filter is a sand filter, when you turn the valve to backwash and turn on the pump it reverses the water flow in the sand filter to flush the dirt out of the filter to waste. Look at the window openning in the waste pipe and keep the backwashing goinging until you see clear water.
Then turn off the pump and move the control valve to Rinse, turn on the pump for a few minutes, this returns the water flow back to normal but the water goes to waste to make sure the sand filter is clean.
Turn off the pump and move the control valve to filter and turn on the pump. This mode is the normal operating mode and the pressure gauge in the sand filter will show a drop in pressure.
Some pressure gauge shows a red section to indicate when backwashing should be carried out.

I just bought a used balboa hot tub and have no expertise. Does the pump kick in automatically even when you turn it off it will turn back on instantly? Is that normal? If it is not normal what could be...


This does not sound normal, but in order to better diagnose this I need to know exactly what model of controls your spa has. This is easily found on a label on top of the control box in the spa cabinet. If the label is missing, then remove the control box cover and look at the inside of the cover for the schematic, should be a model number on it.

Doesn't get fire since replacing fuel pump.


Normally after replacement of the fuel pump you need to get the fuel flowing back through the system again. To do this, turn the ignition key until you hear the fuel pump kick in for a few seconds, then turn key back to off. Repeat this several times to get the fuel flowing. If this doesn't help, you will need to ensure that the fuel pump is actually coming on. Let me know

Steering system


It very possible that the new power steering pump is defective. I would take it back for a possible warranty issue.

I'm confused about the part where the water pump damaged the power steering pump. The power steering pump doesn't require any cooling from the water pump. The power steering pump only needs the belt to run it properly.
