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.

SOURCE: maxi flow spa booster pump, buzzing...then cuts out

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.

Good luck!

SOURCE: I have an XP2 in my 6 year old above ground spa.

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.

I just bought a used older garden leisure spa, it won;t turn off. The manual says push button once for low pump, twice for high pump and a third time for off. I only get low and high pump speeds.


This can be normal depending in the settings. It may continue to run for upto 15 minutes, its just looking to satisfy it's heat or filter cycle.

Heat Pump comes on, fans slow down, switches off?


Sounds like a bad temp sensor or switch. Like in cars my guess is that the switch is failing to work causing the fans to stop despite the pump getting hot.

Dreammaker x-400 clicking sound and pump surge


This might be a problem with the topside control. When the spa is clicking, try unplugging the topside control and see whether or not the problem stops. If the jet button is stuck on the topside, the pump will turn on-off-on-off-on-off until the topside is unplugged.

If unplugging the topside worked, replace it.

My pump works on low speed but not high speed


these are a bear to work on.. there are start switches inside of the motor, and will break if you even look at them wrong.(fragile) you can try compressed air to blow out the trash that might be in the switch..or unhook power cord of the motor from the motherboard and remove the pump and motor from the spa , bring it to your local pool pump moor repair guy with free testing have it tested. if removing wires from motor YOU MUST REINSTALL THEM EXACTLY AS THEY CAME OFF ! OR YOU WILL BURN UP THE expensive 2 speed motor .. jay Florida

I have a proline pool pump model # SD-15-1N11CC and it worked fine until I back washed my pool and now it stopped working. It makes a humming noise and nothing else.


C. MOTOR HUMS, BUT DOES NOT START—
Check for:
1. Centrifugal switch stuck in open position.or if capacitator start could be bad capacitator. Possible loose connection.
2. Binding of motor shaft. (something stuck in impeller) Does motor turn free. IF not check for jamed impeller. If it she sp2605x7 you can view a manual here:
