It's sounds normal the motor will get hot. If it were overheating it should automatically shut down wait to cool off and restart.

Emerson pool spa pump leaking water-how to change gaskets


Emerson is not the name of the pump, that's the brand of the motor attached to the wet end, and the two together make a pump.
1081/1563 only means that it meets the standards for a pool motor.
provide make and model, for your pump.

Emerson EB848 is leaking, running hot and tripping the circuit breaker


How old is the motor?
If new is it the same hp as the old one?
if no and it's a lower hp motor did you replace the impeller to match the decrease in hp?
if no..this is why it's running hot.

the leak is an easy fix. you need to replace the pump seal. there are four main seals used in pools and spas but I cant tell you the one you need with out knowing the brand of the wet end.

water + electricity will usually trip a braker......

I have emerson 1081 pool pump, stop running the other day, motor just humms when turned on. replaced capacitor, still have same problem. motor turns freely by hand. what else could be the problem.


probably should pull it out and take it to a motor repair shop. sounds as if maybe the windings are bad.
double check the installation of the capacitor but doesn't sound like the motor is any good. they may be able to repair it though.

I purchased a new 3/4hp Emerson pool pump installed it and the only thing it will do is hum.


OUT THE BACK SIDE OF THE MOTOR IS A SLOT IN THE SHAFT FOR A SCREWDRIVER , SEE IF YOU CAN TURN THE MOTOR OVER(BREAKER OFF !) YOU MAY HAVE BOUND THE IMPELLER OR IT COULD BE SET FOR 230 VOLTS AND YOU ARE RUNNING IT ON 115VOLT.....
IT MAY HAVE A BAD START CAP OR THE SWITCH MIGHT NEED CLEANING. THESE EMERSON MOTORS CAN BE HARD TO WORK ON DO TO THE HUGE AMOUNT OF PLASTIC PARTS
