Question about Pool & Spa
Posted by Anonymous on
Do you have an auxiliary remote control panel?
Is it plugged into the cable of the main control topside panel?
If you do you have a remote panel, and it is not plugged into its own receptacle on the circuitboard, but onto the cable of the main top side panel, that remote panel may have a short. As it would override the ability for proper operation at the main panel. Disconnect that remote panel, it will not lessen the ability of spa operation, other than the convenience factor of having a remote panel, it should repair your problem.

SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off
The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

hi the capacitor needs replacing in the pump connection box, this needs to be exactly the same uF value as the one you are taking out.

You have a gage on your filter? Anywhere on your system? I would suspect yout system should run at about 18 to 28 lbs PSIG when clean and go up about 10 lbs PSIG when it needs to be back washed.

SOURCE: I have a Hayward Power-Flo
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.
