SOURCE: Rule H53sp-24 pool cover pump trips GFI breaker

GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.

I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.

Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.

Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).

SOURCE: rule 1800 pool cover pump trips breaker

It sounds like the pump motor has shorted. Probably time to invest in another one.

SOURCE: I have a Rule 1800 pool cover pump with leaf

You are probally just getting an air lock and can fix this by taking the hose off till it's under water or hold it upside down in water till it starts. If you hold the cord while it's in the water an just make sure it's taught you should be able to feel the vibration through the cord to tell if the pump is indeed running while under water.
If this does not help you may have to take the bottom end apart and check the impeller for clogs.
I hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: Need repair manual or schematics for a Danner 350

You are wasting your time...the whole new pump is under $50 and no manufacturer is going to have an aftermarket parts program or repair manual for such an item. Once they fail you replace them.

Your float switch is stuck and/or the hole that lets water in and out is plugged. Clean the switch.

Had ice on cover and it stopped running only 3 yrs old


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the pump. Unfortunately there is no reset or other means of restoring your pump to operating condition. If the unit is out of warranty there is no cost effective means to get parts or to have it repaired.

You may be interested in knowing they warranty the pumps for 3 years.

Rule 1800 gph pool cover pump will not run


The sensor that checks for h20 every 10 seconds may not be working properly. First make sure the pump is unplugged then clean the pump making sure the impeller is free never do this with it plugged in. tap the pump lightly with a screw driver handle to make sure the bearings are not frozen if it still does not work send it back to the manufacturer

I have a rule 1800 computerized pool cover pump. As soon as I plug it in, it runs a few seconds then shuts right off, WON"T keep running. (this is outside of the water, dry) any help?


That's a good thing. That pump uses resistance on the impeller to alert it to the presence of water. It will periodically start and run for a few seconds. If there is any water present, it will keep running, otherwise it will shut off until the next time it tries. Put it in water, and see if it works there.
