WARNING when replacing a motor on a northstar you must match the hp and service factor.. say its a 1.1/2 hp motor and the service factor 1.47 you will need a 2hp with a 1.15 service factor to replace that original motor .if you replace it with a 1 1/5 motor it WILL BURN UP THE MOTOR !!. welcome to the hayward northstar .
only the 2 speed motors have a start switch the CAPACITOR would be my first check it may be a 30 or a 35uf at 370 cap LOOK IN YOUR AREA FOR YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY WITH FREE TESTING USE YOUR ZIP CODE IN YOUR SEARCH

What does it mean "run pump for temp" and how do I deal with it? I'm just setting up the hot tub at the cottage and it is taking a long time to heat up. Thanks


the heater element is in the pump housing and needs the pump running so that the heated water is circulated to get it all hot
with no pump operation all that is getting hot is the pump housing area and that will burn out the element

Ran out gas put gas in it still wont start


If you run out of gas in this truck it will quickly destroy a fuel pump, the electric pump is located inside the gas tank, it is tiny and to do its job it uses the gasoline it is immersed in for cooling, if you run the tank below 1/8 tank level the pump is going to run hot, if you run out of gas the pumps rotor bearings get very hot and if the pump gets hot enough the rotor seizes up. Also when you run out of gas it takes more than 1 gallon to get the pump to prime again, 3 gallons minimum is the least amount. The bottom line here is that you will more than likely need to pull the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

POLARIS PB-4 3/4 HP BOOSTER PUMP -- body of pump very hot, too hot to hold hand on. 20 amp breaker gets very hot also. Has not tripped the 20 amp breaker yet.


A motor can run that hot and still be within the temperature it can handle. It likely has an internal overload device that will shut it off if it exceeds that temperature. If you see something like "thermally protected" on the motor nameplate, you are ok. If it is getting noisy as it runs it may need servicing.

Fuel pump getting hot


Not a good sign at all make sure that the pump has a good ground but i will exchange the pump from where i got it, the fuel that runs into the pump should be cooling the motor but in your case the pump is heating the fuel not a very good sign please replace the pump.
