Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

If you are certain of your test results and the line connections being on the correct terminals in the motor the only explanation is an open connection within the motor and the need for it to be repaired or replaced. Of course if it tests fine on a bench even after your trial on site it would seem far more likely there is a wire in the wrong spot. Triple check the connection diagram on the motor to your lead placement one more time and if you are sure everything is as it should be you’ll need to have it looked at be a motor shop to see if the motor can be repaired for a cost that is reasonable compared to the price of new.

Pool pump breaker tripping


1) Not likely the timer is problem, unless there was fire or overheating in timer box. Use nose and eyes to inspect for signs of high heat.

2) Eliminate timer as suspect:
Move wires on timer to test if timer relays have gone bad.
Move terminal 4 to terminal 3
Move terminal 2 to terminal 1

3) Check watt rating of Hayward pump, and voltage.
1Hp motor at 240Volt draws 8 amp, and can draw 6 to 8 times that amount when starting. Up to 100 feet, should be at least 12 gauge wire and double-pole 20 amp breaker. Over 100 feet, 10 gauge wire and 30 amp double-pole breaker is best.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html#motor

4) Intermatic T104 240V timer is rated 40 amps
Can safely handle 1 Hp motor without nearing heat-rating capacity of timer

5) Make sure the motor is wired correctly for 240Volts.
If motor is wired for 120, and 240 is applied, then tripped breaker can result.

My hayward pool pump not working,forget to close the air vent before pump started and is water allover the pump,what to do?


Water sprayed on the pump occasionally shouldn't hurt it but it might cause a ground fault circuit interupter (GFCI) to trip. If you turn on the pump and literally nothing happens then most likely the the GFCI has tripped. If it hums then this is a different issue. If you have a volt meter you can open the timer box and check whether power is available to the timer. If no power is available in the timer then it confirms that the pump is probably ok. Checking your circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker or finding a tripped GFCI then either one can be reset and your pump will probably run without a problem.

I hope this helps.
