Question about Aqua Flo Aquaflo Flo Master Xp2 Spa Pump 1.5 Hp Two Speed
Either the pump is shutting itself down or the spa pack is shutting it down and indicating a flow problem. The motor is thermally protected and now I am suspicious that it is getting too hot and shutting down...then the spa pack indicates no flow. Or else the spa pack is shutting the pump down. I have jumpered across the pressure switch and it still shuts down. Does a thermally protected motor shut down to avoid getting damaged from too much heat? And what would cause the motor to get too hot. The pump is a 5 hp pump, but only the 1.5 hp product shows up on the list.
Yes a pump does have a thermal cut out. When the motor gets too hot the thermal cut out will activate and the pump won't restart until the motor has cooled.
If you were an electrician, or highly confident/competent with electrics, you could test the motor with a volt meter. Run the spa and as soon as the pump stops running, check the voltage at the pump. If there is voltage at the pump, then the thermal cut out on the motor has activated. Do not try checking this yourself if you're not competent to do so.
You could also do the same test at the spa pack if it's easier to do so, just locate the output to the pump.
What spa and which spa pack have you got?

Thermal switch should not be causing the problem. It is much more likely that the problem is the motor, or shorted wiring. If there is a thermal overload switch it will be mounted inside the tail of the motor, but you may need to completely pull the motor apart to get to it. Is the breaker tripping only when you turn the pump on? what I mean is if the pump is off will the breaker reset, and then only trips when you try and turn on the pump? check wiring closely where it comes into the motor, and look for bad insulation where it might be touching the frame or another wire. If your familiar with motors and windings, you can also disconnect the wires from the motor and check the windings with an ohm meter. How old is the pump? and how long has it been installed. Is this a new problem on an old installation? or did you just install the a new motor? Also if you still suspect the motor, might be worth taking down to a pool pump repair shop if there's one near by most will test a motor for you for free. If you need more help, post a comment and'll I'll reply asap. Good Luck!

I responded to the previous question in regards to the motor only. The xp2 does not have the strainer basket that the max-e-pro has . If this was a regular hot tub, the xp2 would work great, if this is above ground, then you do need a pump with a strainer basket. Again the xp2 will not work for an inground hot tub as the set up is different than an above ground unit.
