Question about Water ACE SUBMERSIBLE SUMP PUMP 1/3 HP

1 Answer

I have a brand new 1hp water ace water pump 230/115 switched to 115. The motor hums for 30sec then stops, but the pump does not turn. Then it will hum again in about 4min. I shut it off after that.

    It comes with an slide switch to move from the 230 to 115 position. (not just hard wired for 230).

If it was initally wired for 230, I question who rewired it for 115, the reason is 230 is a foreign relation in the metric world, 220 in our world, in which case two of the wires wires hooked up according to non American standards. The scamatic showed the change over inside the cap, but in china the white is the ground and the green is reversed with the red to make the motor in reverse, confused, you should be, cause I'm not looking at the motor so there is no way for me to know what you have there! What I'm saying is stop before you burn up the motor and take it to a motor shop that knows about the proper rewiring to change it from 220 to 110. 4 Min. is a long time, you may have already fried it. Good Luck!

My R520-T7 pump hums but will not turn on


sounds like a jammed or detached impeller, located at the bottom of the pump motor. Repairs are unreliable and replacement is inexpensive ($130 for a comparable pump) recommend replacing the pump.

Motor hums attemps to turn but does not


If motor hums and does not rotate, the motor winding is bad.
Motor is overheating and will stop humming and it will not work again.
30 years ago, motors were rewound at local electric shop.
Today the copper winding and steel parts are recycled or thrown into landfill.
Check warranty papers and then buy new pump.

MY PENTAIR 1HP PUMP WILL NOT START. THE PUMP IS GETTING POWER BUT WILL NOT START. HAS WATER IN THE PUMP. I THINK IT MAY BE THE CAPACITOR


If it does hum, but not start it couuld be the capicator. Check to be sure the motor turns free. If it does and won't start , and it has a capacitor (hump on motor or in back cover) try replacing. (Be sure motor is turned off)

1hp Water Ace dual jet water pump hums, doesn't pump


DOES YOUR NEW MOTOR HAVE A START CAPACITOR BUILT INSIDE OF IT TO HELP IT START. OR DOES IT REQUIRE A CAPCITOR START / RELAY BOX ABOVEGROUND. ALSO IF YOUR OLD MOTOR WAS 220V AND THE NEW ONE IS 115V YOU HAVE 2 HOT WIRES AND NO NEUTRAL. THE NEW MOTOR REQUIRES 1 HOT AND 1 NEUTRAL. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

Hayward 1hp super pump stops working


Your motor has a thermal protection switch in it the reacts to an overheating condition. Once the motor cools enough it will turn back on. You may be able to have the motor rebuilt for about half the cost of new if it is not damaged to severely. Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for service. If it is damaged beyond repair, you can shop around for a new one. If you would like a quote, contact us at www.arrowpools.net with your pump model number and we can quote it.
