Question about Flotec 1 - 1/2 Sprinkler Pump Composite Quick Priming High - Capacity 115/230v
Purchased a new flotec 1 1/2hp sprinkler pump today. I wired it at the 230v setting just like the one it replaced. I have 12 gauge braided wire and have one hot under one screw and the other hot under the other. Ground is secure. Pump runs for about 10 minutes and shuts off. I have tested current and have 245v at the timer and at the motor and also made sure the dial was set to 230. Any suggestions???

L1- L2 doesn't care if blk or red. Make sure there is 220vac (240vac) on the supply wires. If there is there is something amiss with the pump. Eric

The impeller screws on the motor shaft. First replace the through bolts in the motor. These are the long bolts, they will just cause headachs. On the back of the motor their will be a place to hold the shaft from turning, If you hold the shaft the impeller just unscrews. If you look in the center of the impeller it may have a set screw holding it to the shaft. If you have one of these it will be a left hand screw. Then you will need to break the impeller free as the brass that holds the impeller on will stick to the stainless steel of the shaft. Don't let how tight this is fool you when you put this back together it just goes on hand tight. Good luck

The motor is locked and you cannot reverse it... the pump will need to be pulled and replaced...
Replace it with a "sandhandler" type pump that will pump the grit through it with out hurting it..
