Question about Hayward 3/4hp Super Pump Inground Pool Pump 115/230 Volt # Sp2605x7

1 Answer

I have a new 1 HP Hayward superpump. The pump

I have a new 1 HP Hayward superpump. The pump starts and runs for about 3-5 secs and then shuts off. The shut off results in the circuit breaker triping. The voltage stays above 230V until the the pump shuts down. The owners manual suggested that shut down is the result of low voltage but I have ruled this out. I am thinking the pump may be bad.
Any other suggestions.

    Is the pump set to the 230v position?

SOURCE: frig trips circuit breaker

Hello gonzomg69,
The two other comments posed at you from Blue Dog and 20YRSEXP are good ones and necessary to get to the root cause of the problem however I have a few ideas to share with you that may help.. First off, I am assuming that the circuit breaker you mention is the one that protects the outlet that feeds your fridge power. If thats correct, and you just started to have breaker trips, the obvious question is ..does that circuit breaker also supply power to other receptacles and do those have any additional appliances or 'loads' on them that are drawing current? The circuit breaker current rating is based on the wire size so that regardless of what you plug into a receptacle, that breaker limits current so you won't melt the insulation or have a fire. Also, you should be aware that circuit breakers do go bad and that may be your problem too..
I hope this information helps you...

SOURCE: new hayward 1 HP super pump runs 1 or 2 seconds,

Check that the motor is set for the proper voltage. They are usually factory connected for 230V and if you have a 115V line feeding it the motor will overheat and cycle the overload as you describe.

Overheating hayward super pump

Superpumps have been a workhorse in the industry for decades. Your results are highly unusual. The motors that run these pumps have bee manufactured by Century/Magnetek and A.O. Smith for the past 20+ years. These same motors power the vast majority of pumps built by a wide range of pool pump manufacturers. (They are not Hayward specific)
You may want to get a second opinion from another electrician, or call out a pool pro to check out the installation to see what could be causing these frequent failures. This is WAY abnormal.

I just installed a New 1 hp Hayward Super Pump. The electrical service is a 20amp GFCI breaker> Old pump was a plug in connection, re-used the existing wiring. I changed the internal connection on the...

I see what you said ... still I want to say the following: It is to your benefit to keep the motor at 220 VAC ... Since you want to run it on 120 (I presume the motor is internally wired for 120 now - right?) did you change the white wire in your pannel to the neutral bus making the line 120? Also check the motor that it is wired for 120. It sounds to me like you did the line but not the load.

If the line and the load are both correct the next thing to check would be the start capacitor. It should be good since this is a new motor ... but it is not running. Have it checked.

It will not matter where you put the hot and neautral as long as one goes on line 1 and the other on line 2. Just be sure to reset the voltage indicator to read the 115V like before and your all set.

I'm need assistance wiring my hayward 2 speed super pump up with my pool timer. the pump is working now but it's running real hot and making alot of noise.

You may have a faulty bearing ... causing the noise. The pump is actually water cooled. Do you have 2 inch line for your 2 HP pump? Small pipe makes the pump work harder. If your lines are smaller, you may want to consider a smaller pump.

the motors will run pretty warm.

Run your pump on high for best results.

If you are using a timer ... you will need a double pole switch to turn it off if it is setup for 220 VAC (which it should be, for most econimical operation)
