Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

I have a newly installed pump (1 month old) it is tripping the breaker.


If your pool has a salt water chlorinator and the salt level is too high then it could trip the circuit breaker as the combined load from the salt water chlorinator and pump motor exceeds the circuit breaker rating.

I have a Polaris PB4-60 booster pump, less than 3yrs old. I turned the pump and left. When I got back 1hr later, the pump was not running. Breakers had been tripped. Each time we reset the breakers and...


If the device that tripped is a ground fault circuit interupter (GFCI) breaker or receptacle then it is likely caused by 5mA or more of leakage current to ground within the motor. If what tripped is a circuit breaker then there are likely shorted turns within the motor. Usually either of this issues requires a new motor.

If you are not wanting to turn wrenches yourselfthen my best suggestion is to bring it to Leslies Pool Supplies and they oftencan put it right for the price of the parts while you watch (they might not have some parts in stock).

I hope this helps.

The motor runs fine with the belt off but when the compressor is on line the motor hums and trips the house breaker.


Turn the compressor pump pulley by hand (with belt off) and air pressure in the tank. It should be very easy to turn. If it is hard to turn, evaluate the check valve for leak. If no leak examine crank bearings for damage. Repair as needed. If easy to turn fault is with motor. Check amp draw with belt removed. When the motor comes on, it should draw about 15 amps and drop lower. The motor should start and reach full rpm in a split second. It should start with a bang and run smoothly with-out getting hot and only pull low amount of amps. If slow start and high amp draw, check capacitor/s and or start winding switch inside of motor. Sometimes the start switch will burn the contacts and give trouble. If both capacitors test within 95% of value and start switch appears to be good, look for damaged copper windings. Windings will be discolored or burned and the tie strings binding the windings will be melted. Replace as needed. Good holidays

1 1/2 HP Pentair Pinnacle Pump keeps tripping the breaker. What would the problem be and how can I fix it?


The motor and/or electrical system is damaged and need to be repaired. With the breaker off, disconnect the motor and insulate the wire ends. Turn the breaker back on and it should remain closed without tripping. If so, it is ok and you can turn it off and leave it so until the motor is fixed or replaced.

Find a local electric motor repair shop and have them inspect the motor. It will likely have to be replaced but taking it to them insures it is not repairable and also makes sure the new one will fit correctly. A new motor and seal would likely run ~$150 or so.

Pump trips breaker


If the seals are damaged, water will leak into motor section and cause GFI to trip and yet the pump will seem that it is running fine if plugged into a non-GFI receptacle
