High speed setting on pump won't work.

I have a Hayward SmartMax filter pump, and last week the high speed stopped working. Low speed works fine. What happened? Had the pool for just under 2 years. HELP!

Pentair WhisperFlo 1hp, 230v, Dual Speed won't start in morning


If the high speed side of a two speed pump will not operate it is because there is a problem with the windings on the high side of the motor.
You will need to either take it to a motor shop and have them fix it or replace the complete motor.

3 hp hot tub motor Sta-Rite tub has two speed low for filtering and high for jets low starts and then stops high speed works fine


make sure you make a wiring diagram or just unplug the plug from the mother board and search your area for your local pool pump repair guy with free testing. these are a high $$$ motor and not a good one to practice on, save it for a pro ! it might just be a dirty switch or need to be reset I don't charge any thing for that, and while your there ask him how to take better care of your $$$ pump ?

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

Just had my Hayward Tristar 2-spd pump/motor replaced a month ago. I've been running it on high speed for about 3 weeks because my control pad went out and I couldn't get it to run on low speed. ...


running the pump on high speed will not have caused the problem, they are meant to run 3,450 rpm's continually. It's more than likely a supply power problem like you mentioned. Check GFI's, and breakers to see if anything has tripped.

If I am following your description correctly it sounds like the booster is tied to the wrong clock...You want the booster to run with the high speed which is 'the other' timer it sounds like.
