Question about Sta Rite Max - E - Pro 1 1/2 Hp Dual Speed

1 Answer

Pump hums then breaker flips

My sta rite pump is not seized because when I unfasten the clamp that connects the wet and dry side and then turn on the pump power, the motor works fine. Then when I re-connect the clamp and fasten it down, the motor just hums and the breaker flips. Any thoughts on why this happens?

Something is binding in the pump try the impeller to see if it runs true when you have it apart. It may be cross threaded on the shaft. This is a common problem if you have a air leak in your system.

Either the pump is seized or the motor start capacitor is open or blown. If you can spin the impeller with your finger it is most likely a start capacitor problem.

First to be sure shut the breaker off then turn back on. Most breakers require that you do this for safty reasons. Check all your power from the breaker to the back of the motor with a meter. If you have power shut it off then open the pump by removing the steel clamp that goes around the pump. Pull the motor and back half of the pump away from the rest of the pump. Now remove the difusser, the white plate covering the impeller. Then try to spin the impeller. If it spins then try to start thr motor. If it goes then you have a problem with the impellor or the difusser. If it won't start at this point you probally have a bad motor and will need to replace it. I always recomend new but you can get a rebuildt. If it's the impeller that will usually be obvious. You can take it into your local store and have them match the parts and they will usually do the bench work for just the charge for parts.
I hope this helps, good luck.

Any time an electrical appliance trips a breaker there is only several causes:
1 - appliance is pulling more amperage than the breaker was built for.
2 - breaker is faulty
3 - a "hot" wire is touching "ground"
4 - screws (where wire is attached) in the pump or breaker are loose

1 - If the appliance is pulling more amperage than the breaker (or wiring) will allow, then check the appliance to see what amperage it's rated at. If this is more than the breaker will allow, you'll have to plug the appliance into a circuit that will take that amperage. If the appliance rating is within the limits of the wiring & breaker, then check #2, #3 or #4 above. If everything is okay with the remaining possibilities, then you have problems within the pump. Do it yourself'ers usually have a bad time when they open an electric motor. I suggest you take the motor to a electric motor repair shop or seek help from the Sta-Rite pump Customer Service.

if it is a used pump, these have a tendency to have a little rust. just get some pump pliers and rock the shaft gently back and forth. then plug it back in.
