Service Light comes on

One minute after initial set-up of the Intex salwater system, the system shuts down and the service light comes on. I have reset the timer four times, followed with the same result each time. Anybody have any suggestions as to how to resolve this issue?

Intex saltwater pump - runs for 3 minutes and shuts off with service light coming on.

It's overheating internally. Overload switch is either doing its job: tripping out when motor overheats, or the overload switch is faulty and has failed.
On either situation = New Pump
Why ? You ? Ask?
Because Intex Sells NO parts for their components!
They want you to buy a whole new unit.
They are not made with quality in mind. Greatly mass produced in China, and unleashed on the world by the Gazillions.
Thats what happens with Toy Equipment.

Intex pool pump runs for five minutes and then shuts down and service light comes on. What could be the problem as it was running fine the day before?

We don't have a service light on our pump, but usually when our is playing up it's because the pump is struggling to push enough water through - for example if the filter needs changing or if the skimmer isn't receiving enough water/water level is too low.

I have a intex saltwater system. I just hooked it up and started using it . I set it up and it ran about 2 minutes and the service light came on. I shut it off and tried it again and same problem.

Contact your pool professional or the place you purchased the device. Ask for direction and possible warranty adjustment BEFORE you fool around with it.

My service light comes on right after the chlorinator light comes. And when the service light comes on everything shuts down.

Service light is only handled by intex.
If you have a valid receipt you can call intex. They will have you fax some info and then send you out a new one.
