1.5 hp waterway champion pool pump issue

We bought a 1.5 hp waterway champion pool pump on 7/12 for our 16X32 inground pool at Namco, and it's now turning itself off (3x already) after being on for less than half hour. Why? Am I doing something wrong?

Be sure you have connected the motor to the line leads correctly and that the motor is set for the proper line voltage.

A somewhat common problem is that most motors are dual voltage (can be ran on 115 or 230 volt) and come factory set for 230 volts. If you connect it to a 115 volt circuit it will run for a while and then overheat and shut off.

    So does that mean there is a reset right on the motor?

    A better way to say it is there is a reset in the motor...it is internal and operates automatically. If it trips due to overheating it will reset itself once the motor has cooled enough.

Sounds like you don't have the pump lid "0" ring seated properly under the lid, or there is dirt or leaves on the "0" ring. This has to seal perfectly or the pump will not pump much if any water.

I have just bought a waterway 3/4 hp. Can you give instructions ( or Diagram ) for changing wiring in motor over to 110 V from 220 V. Thanks, Pat


Is there a coverplate where the wires come out of the pump? If so, remove the plate and there should be a wiring diagram inside for both the 110 or the 220V convertions.

Not self priming itself. when it turns off the water pushes back out of the skimmer and pushes the basket up. it loses water and the pump cant re-prime itself.


PRIME PUMP, OPEN AIR VALVE ON FILTER. OR TAKE THE LID OFF YOUR FILTER AND SEE IF IT STARTS TO PUMP... YOU DO HAVE IT PLUMBED RIGHT? THE PIPE COMING OUT OF THE PUMP GOES TO THE FILTER !! I'M YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA. WHERE THE POOL IS ALWAYS OPEN
