    The techncian identified the burnt out board in the unit. This is mainly caused by no water flowing through the pump and the pump was running dry. I was away on a month holiday and the water level in the pool dipped below the minimum level due to evaporation. Although I relied on my neighbour to assist me to maintain the pool, he failed. My suggestion is to keep the water level up to avoid this problem.

Sorry, I don't know this pump. Some pumps have a red button somewhere for reset. Look for it. When a start capacitor - a voltage booster for starting fails, this is the problem. Get a new one if all else fails. By the way, can you tell if the motor smells burnt. That would mean failure. Hope this helps.

Cold water isnt working when pump on in 1998 terry 5th wheel


All water flow is pushed by the water pump unless you are connected to a hydrant with a drinking water safe hose. Make sure all valves are set for water flow from the proper source. The water pump has a switch or two in the RV, usually near sinks or toilet. If the switch is on and no pump sound, check the fuse at the house 12v fuse panel (interior lights, furnace, refrigerator, etc.) If the fuse is O.K., it's either the pump or the pump controller. Amazon com Intellitec 00 00145 100 WATER PUMP CONTROLLER 10A Automotive

Test the pump by hooking it directly to 12v supply or use a test light to see if power is available at pump wires.

Pump does not turn on. there is power to the board but nothing lights up


No power supply to "board" possibly 24vac, or an air type of control, so that the air supply pump is not active. Possibly the power supply to the pump and control board has "popped" the
circuit breaker. Check, the circuit breaker. There may also be a GFI Ground Fault Indicator that acts like a circuit breaker but is more sensitive, especially near water. Look at the receptacle that the motor plugs into. GFI has a test button and a reset button.

I need help hooking up new headlights, with halos and LEDs, i nned them to turn on right wen the car turns on... Not wen i turn lights on


For that you will need to be able to do some serious wiring. You will need to find a relay in the engine compartment fuse/relay box that turns on when you turn on the key, like the electric fuel pump relay, for example. Next you will need to calculate the amperage draw of all of the lights you are going to hook up. If the fuse for the relay you chose is smaller than the amperage you need to serve both the fuel pump and the lights then you will need to make a fuse connection at a spare in the fuse box to connect to the new relay output and input (see below). The fuel pump relay has control and supply wires on it. The supply wires actually supply the power to the fuel pump. The control wires simply turn on the relay when you turn on the key in the ignition. You need to hook up the control wires of the fuel pump relay to the control wires of the new lights relay. As stated earlier, the supply wires are then hooked to the relay and, in turn to the supply fuse. Make certain that you use some heavier wire for the supply circuits. Thinner wires may be substituted for the control wires. Solder at the fuse box side and use spade connectors at the lights side...good luck!

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

I HAVE NO DISPLAY PUMP DOES NOT TURN ON I HAVE POWER COMING INTO THE PUMP


I looked up the users manual for this unit and it said if the display was not working then "ensure the main breaker (located at the power supply panel) and the disconnect switch (located near the heat pump) are both turned ON."

If power is truly comming into the pump then the problem is likely either a bad power supply, connector problem or the display board. There could also be a fuse blown but that would likely be caused by a bad power supply.

I am not sure HeaWave will help but I recommend you call the HeatWave technicalsupport at 800-786-7751 and they might be able to help you figure this issueout. I hope this helps.

Please vote on this answer. Thank you.

Fuel pump not geting power


CHECK THE INERTIA SWITCH FIRST , IT'S LOCATED BEHIND THE PASSENGER SIDE KICK PANEL THERE IS A ACCESS HOLE TO CHECK RESET BUTTON.. CHECK FOR POWER AT THE TERMINALS WHILE THERE ...THE FUEL PUMP WILL RECIEVE POWER FOR 2 SECONDS WHEN IGNITION IS TURNED ON IF NO POWER (12VOLTS) CHECK FUEL PUMP RELAY IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT RELAY BOX , IF NEEDED SWAP RELAYS AND RETEST , ALSO THE POWER RELAY SUPPLIES VOLTAGE TO PCM WHICH IN TURN ENERGIZES FUEL PUMP RELAY SO CHECK BOTH RELAYS ALSO

HOPE THIS HELPS

Pentair pool pump vs 3050


These pumps should not be hooked into an intermatic mechanical timer. It should always have power supplied to it, meaning it should be installed to the line side of the power supply. Scheduling is done either in pump itself or thru an external controller such as a suntouch or easytouch controller, etc. When you have it wired into a timer like intermatic, power is interupted to the pump every day when the timer setting is for off. It is very hard on the drive of this pump, it does not like it, and will shorten the life of the drive. The pump was designed to always have power supplied to it, even when it is not scheduled to run. This may be the problem you are experiencing. HTH
