Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

I have speck pool pump A91 11. It runs on low but surges off and on in high any idea. I think it may be low voltage from the size of extension cord that is run to it. It was already hooked up.

SOURCE: pump stops running on high speed

You have a magnetek motor and it is overheating and cycling its thermal overload. A local electric motor repair shop may be able to fix it however it will likely need to be replaced. It is to costly to repair the motor if the damage is in the windings.

Assuming at that low a horsepower it is 115V, the likely replacement motor is a catalog #BN37. We sell it for $157. You are usually better off replacing the seal when you replace the motor and most Jacuzzi pumps are either a 200 or 1000. They should be around $5.

SOURCE: Replaced Single Speed Pool Pump Motor with 2-Speed Motor

You will need a two speed time clock to really take advantage of real energy efficiency savings. Intermatic makes one that fits in place of the original t104 time clock. You will need to run an additional wire to the pump as well. You will have the ground. Then one common wire that is always hot whether or not you are on high speed or low speed. You could make this a white wire. Then a black wire for your high speed that is energized in high speed and a red wire for the low speed. It is important that the high and low speeds not be energized at the same time, otherwise you will hear a very unpleasant sound coming from the motor, and failure and shortened life of the motor will be realized.

SOURCE: pool pump shutting off/tripping the circuit breaker

What kind of pump are you using?
Sounds like the Intex is restricting water flow there by heating up your pump and shutting it down..
You may need to re plumb everything to handle the flow.
Intex hoses and fittings are different than the industry standards just so the can make you buy from them
Do what ever it takes to get good flow

SOURCE: low flow indicator on saltwater pool filter

If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.

Four winds. My pool pump will not start on the low side when I push the button. It will work on the high side. Also it will pump on the low side automatically after I have run it on the high side. ...

The motor starting switch is probably failing on the low speed side so as long as motor is running on high after starting on high it will continue to run if switched to low. You can try to replace the switch or take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop for them to quote the fix.

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

Can you please tell me the correct wiring for a Hayward 120V pool pump (not 240V) Thank you

Follow diagram on the tag. typically low voltage and high voltage volt are diagramed on the tag. Most manufactures send pumps out already for 220. the A and B terminals are for pump wires. and the lines are for the power cord. follow the diagram and you can't go wrong;

Our pool pump keeps shutting down

the pump is not functioning correctly, it should run constant, and is only controlled by the switch. are you by any chance running this pump off of an extension cord, because that can cause this symptom. an large draw such as a pump compounded by the voltage drop of the cord can cause the motor to overheat and shut down sporatically.

It worked fine last year. This year it throws the breaker on the gen. After 2 or 3 min. The fan works on low and high but it trips on low or high ac its a model 6759c707

If all is the same as when it ran good, such as same power cord (no extension, or properly sized extension ) same generator output voltage etc, then I'd check amp draw when compressor kicks in. Good chance compressor start capacitor may be faulty.

Pump runs 3 mins turns off

Sounds like the pump is overheating and tripping the high limit. If it reaches a certain temperature, the motor will shut down to save itself. This is usually from inadequate line voltage or possibly a bad run capacitor or a problem with the windings. This can also be caused by running the wrong size impeller. If you have a one horsepower motor, you can only run a 1hp impeller or smaller, never bigger. So if you've had work done on this pump recently, make sure the impeller is not rated for more than the motor can handle. So, first check for good voltage, then check the capacitors for "bloating" or leakage, and check that the impeller is properly sized. I may have missed something, I write again if I think of any other reasons...

Pump keeps turning off

this pump needs about 21/4" of water to operate properly, this pump will not remove all the water from the cover and will cycle on and off as it looses prime. If the motor turns completely off, it may be a an issue with low line voltage. you can try using a lager gauge extension cord to try and fix it, otherwise have an electrician test the line voltage.
