Question about Hayward 1.5hp Pool Pump Motor Motor A O Smith Electric Pool Motor for 56j Frame Motors Ust1152

1 Answer

I just installed a new Hayward super II pump and motor. 1.5 H.P> AO Smith motor. It replaced an old Leslies Hydromax II which is exactly the same setup. It's set up on 220 V. approx. 50 ft. run of No.12 copper wire on a 30 amp breker. I'm getting 230 volts to the motor, but it keeps kicking out on overload. Start, stop, start, stop every 5 -10 seconds. I can turn the pum easily by finger, so it not binding, an it is primed. Do you think I got a lemon, or wat can I try

I would like you to understand something when dealing with electronics, it may have the same set up but might not be compatible with your device, aside that, you are leaving something out, what if the coil windings is not the same as your old Leslies Hydromax II. i would suggest you get the mker as your old Leslies Hydromax II but if no more available, you will need to take along the defaulted to get the exact maker that will match it, perhaps go with the device to have tested before leaving.

Take care.

Why is new ao smith pump getting hot

Most motors are warm to hot when running.
Is it getting so hot that the thermal overload is turning it off? If so the pump should restart once it cools down.
If this is a new motor on an old pump (replacement) it is likely to be:
1.) Incorrect or loose wire connections.
2.) Low voltage supply (frequently caused by undersized wire).
3.) Lack of fresh air supply to motor due to clogged vents.
4.) Incorrect amperage of replacement motor.

Pool pump turns off after 1/2 hour or so but I can turn on manually after it sits for a while. Timer is working fine. Hayward Super II around 5 yrs old. Do I need to replace this motor? This problem just...

Your pump is protected by a thermal device that shuts it off when over heated. Are you running 110 or 220? In my experience, your pump will run cooler on 220 ... consider coverting if appropriate.

A.O. Smith is just the motor. If your pump is a Hayward any pool store can help. Take your old one in and they can match it. Be sure to get a new seal while your at it, It should be a #201 seal. If you pull the whole motor and pump face the pool shop can probally do the work for you and gennerally don't charge except for the parts. Good luck
