Well somehow air is obviously getting into the pump line. Easiest fix is to move the pump below the water level of the tub and then gravity will keep water in there. If you do have the pump below the water level, then make sure you don't have jets shooting a bunch of air directly at the intake in the tub. If that's not the case and it is below water level, then make sure you don't have a leak in the line somewhere.

double the amps, 230 runs cooler (my fav) . 1.5 is 9.6 amps at 230 volt. you will need to set the motor to run on on the lower voltage this is why you are having problems.. also the motor is thermally protected . this why it will run for awhile and shot off .. remember to prime the pump after any pump repair !!!! . jay the pool pump repair guy in longwood florida

Your black and white wires go on L1 and L2. It will not matter which wire goes on with line terminal as long as you just put one cord wire on L1 and one on L2. Be sure you properly switch the motor to run on 115V since it will facotry prepped for 230.<br /> <br /> John

USQ1102 pump gets power, buzzes, trips breaker

The motor-start capacitor is bad. This is a very common problem. It can be easily and cheaply fixed by replacing the capacitor. Replacements are usually less than $10.

See for a step=by=step guide.

When you have the capacitor in hand, check the model# which is printed on it. Alternatively, you can Google the motor brand & model to find the parts list which will identify the right one. Then Google the part number, to find a seller.
