Question about Hayward Sp2607x10 Super 1 Hp Swimming Pool Pump

1 Answer

Proline 1.5 hp pump gets hot and trips breaker.

Just opened our pool which was new last year. The filter was in storage in my garage for the winter and was completely emptied and cleaned at the end of the last season. After setting it up it ran for about 8 hrs the first day. After starting to vacuum the second day I kept losing suction so I back washed a couple times then decided to just completely take apart, clean then recharge the D.E filter again. When I turned off the pump I noticed it was hot. After setting it all back up again I turned on the pump it was noisy for two seconds then tripped the breaker. I tried three more times with the same results. The pump was hot to the touch. Any suggestions??

Motor is locked up in the motor are two bearings they will rust if they are set up for a while.you can take the back off the motor and where the shaft goes thru the houseing take a pair of needle nose plires and try to free it up.

GFCI Breaker tripping when turned on


Try running the motor in the dark. You may find it arcs to the chassis of the motor and that is your culprit. Had same thing on a hot tub 10 years ago. The professional techs tried everything for me. i finished the last part at 10pm and turned the motor on and saw the arc then trip the gfci. Good luck

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.

My opinion is that new pump is defective.

You posted under Intermatic pool timer.
The timer will not have any effect on the new pump overheating.

Insufficient wiring can cause new pump to overheat.
However if wiring is undersized, and/or if both pumps are turned ON at same time, the circuit breaker would get hot and trip.

Instead of the breaker tripping, your new pump is getting hot, and turning off.
Remember, any pump that slows down and overheats is getting damaged.
Replace the defective pump.

Pool pump shutting down -- heater?


Trying to get the TA correct before you kill the alge? Leslies diagnosis?
You probally just need to kill the alge before you do anything. Nevermind the TA for now and just add about ten gallons of liquid chlorine. The alge untill you kill it will plug the filter constantly. This will give you the code on the heater and will make the pump run very hot and will hurt the plumbing by shrinking it. This will stop water flo by letting air in also it will leak water at the pump discharge.
A lot of liquid will break the alge as it is unstable, but use a lot.Once you kill the most of the alge then add probally another four gallons and now brugh the whole thing real good. now you can start running again and start with all the stuff they will sell you to adjust the PH and TA. I hope this helps, and good luck.

6 years is a good time - you must have house for your pump :)

If you are close to a pool shop - take it in and get it tested - somtimes it will just need a service.
