The pump has a thermosthat like device, so if the pump does get to hot, it will by itself turn on & off. You should try running the pump only @ nite on hot days. Your not supposed to have the pump on while your in the pool anyway. I however have had 2 pumps go bad both in the matter of 2 weeks of use. The plastic smell you describe is the impeller shaft (plastic) getting overheated. I'm going to purchase an after market pump & filter, that way my daughter can actually use the pool !

Are you keeping the pump out of the sun while it is running? I think it can overheat when it is a hot day and the pump is running. My pools usually outlast the pumps so I just buy a replacement pump on eBay or amazon. The Intex website also sells them. My pumps seem to last 12 to 18 months

Hi, How long is the extension cord you are using? if it is longer than 20 or 30 feet, that could be causing an issue with the current to the pump, and cause it to burn out prematurely.
If you have a manual for the pump, check to see if there is a limitation on the length of cord or distance from the outlet that you can set up the pump.

Pilot assebly is rusted and pilot supply tube is broken.. so heater will not light.. Can this be replaced easily on a Raypak 2100m 336,000 btu NG?

This is an easy part to get and may be in stock at a good parts orented pool store. It will come with a new tube or any generic will fit.
In your water header is a by=pass assembly and what is called a thermal govoner. One or both of these has gone bad and should be replased. They regulate the internal temp of the water in the heater and keep it from causing condasation on the fins of the exchanger. This condasation driping on the pilot is what causes this damage due to the fact the water that drips is highley asidic. These can be a project to change. The pilot itself is held in place with one screw and the bracket swings out on a hook. That part is easy. Good luck.

The blades broke off the impeller. Can i purchase just the blade assembly from a local store like Leslies pool supply?

You can not buy that part other than perhaps intex. Even then it is not going to be an easy task.
If you have a valid receipt and it is less than a year old intex will replace it for free.
Call them to get a claim # and their fax # fill out the e-mail form and you will have a new pump in a week

I have an Intex 15' x 42" Easy Set pool. I bought chlorine tablets for it, and thought I could put them into the skimmer basket. Now I'm not so sure, and I can't get the DVD to play, and I've lost the...

Buy an inexpensive floater for in the water and put them in there. Putting them in the skimmer will just shorten the life of a pump that will already struggle to give you 3 years of service.

I had boughten a intex pool from a garage sale and the pool is fine but the filter is leaking water everywhere and all the water that is in the pool keeps coming out.

if it has hose clamps tighten them if the area that is leaking has o rings (they can become brittle and leak water) you can purchase them at local harware store
If it is a cracked housing they can be purchased at
call them up and order your parts

Water is cloudy in easy set pool. How do I clear

not enough info like what kind of chlorine and if salt water set up Cloudy water is usually not enough filtering or low chlorine for an extended period of time Be more specific.

No matter what method salt or regular water you need to turn the pool water over at least 3 times a day/night

Lets use generic #'s if you have a 4000gl pool and a 2000gph pump you need to filter at least 6 hours you will need to adjust the #'s for you and figure out how long to filter.

It is also important to keep the chlorine between 1.0 and 1.5 then set your ph level with either ph up or ph down depending on what yours registers at after the chlorine is set.

Remeber that you must first set the chlorine since the ph is affected by chlorine level.

once both are set then the ph will go up and down with your chlorine so keep it in check after initial setting

for now add a little extra chlorine and filter for 24 hours then vaccum remeber to take out the filter cartridge once or twice a week and hose it hard with the garden hose. I am on my 3rd season with the same cartridge

Intex Easy Set 530 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump does this keep your pool clean when running all the time?

No, the filters/pumps are much to weak. Not only is that filter too small for the pool but it is a cartridge filter which is the cheapest form of filtration. I hate to break it to you but a good pump/motor/filter is going to cost you around $600-$800.

I purchased a 15'x42'' easy set pool with no pump

I would agree on the turnover. Don't know if this is a self-priming pump or not. If not, it has to be installed below the top of the pool -- but I assume that's what you're doing, anyway.
