Sounds like the capacitor has given up. If you can, remove the back of the pump, turn on and see if you can start it by hand. If so then it is capacitor. Take to a pool shop/ service centre for repair

My aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump runs warm and stops after a few seconds after i switch it on then goes on after a few minutes And this continues. Why


Thermal Overload Switch: Something is creating an overload on the pump. Once it is overworked, the motor will overheat. This will be sensed by the T.O. switch. Once the switch senses that the motor has cooled, it will start again.
Reasons for overload:
  • Bearings no longer spinning freely & without restriction
  • Foreign debris in the volute, jamming against the impeller
  • Failing T.O. switch
Good Luck

Why does my aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump work in intervals of a few seconds.it goes on for a few seconds then stops and after a few minutes it goes on again


Check for restrictions causing the pump motor to be overworked.
Motor is overheating, the the Thermal Overload Switch senses that and will trip. Once the motor cools, it will restart.

My electrolytic cell and hose have bright aqua chalky feeling substance in them, what should I do and why is this happening?


you have some metals in your water and the cell needs to be cleaned. Aqua color Normally means Copper.

Did you use a Copper Based Algaecide?

Clean out the cell with a high pressure nozzle on the garden hose and a little bit of vinegar splashed on the cell before rinsing.

I have an aqua flow master 3.8 hp xp2 pump in my hot tub, it sounds like it is receiving power as it is clicking on but it will not start. have i fried the motor? the shaft turns ok but nothing is...


Many of these pump motors have a capacitor and start & run windings. I had a pump motor a week ago that was free to rotate, but only hummed. I looked inside the back end, everything looked good, I bought a capacitor online for $7 + $15 shipping, installed it and it worked. The capacitor will have voltage & rating on the side.
BE CAREFUL, CAPACITORS KEEP VOLTAGE EVEN WHEN NOT PLUGGED IN. If you don't know how to handle them, take the motor to a local motor repair shop.

Humming pump throws beaker


It's because you may have a defective starting capacitor or a stuck-up motor or pump. If you know how to check a capacitor, do so. If not try replacing the old one. If the problem still persist, try to turn the shaft with your hand. If you can't turn it. You might have a defective motor or pump bearings.

Tiger shark just doesnt clean very well


I the filter is not very clean the pump will not push hard enough to hold the tracks onto the walls. Try running without filter in a very clean pool for a few minutes to see if it solves the climb walls replace the filter and clean the unit
