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.

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.

Geyser timer stopped working

Check circuit breaker.
Click fully off and then back on.
Check for burned smell at breaker or loose crackling sound that says breaker is bad.

Reset timer. Then Reprogram.
Possible geyser timer manual 24H-7-Day-Timer-230V Brochure.pdf

This timer has a non-replaceable internal rechargeable battery.
If battery has gone bad, then timer is defunct.

Use manual override button to turn timer ON-OFF.
Then test across terminals 3 and 4 for 240Volts.
Turn timer OFF, and test across terminals 4 and 5 for 240Volts
If no voltage shows then timer does not have output.

If test shows 80% undervoltage, that can cause load not to activate, depending on type of load.
Have electrician check for voltage issues at power company transformer.

Unknown what load timer is connected to.
Max load for this timer at 240 volts is 3680 watts, 16 amps.
Motor load is 230 volt 8 amps.
Check label on load for watt or amp rating.
Volts x amps = watts
Watts divided by volts = amps

Hi, last month we bought an intex round pool (18' x 54") with sand pump and salt sanitizer. Within the last 2 days the water started turning green. It turns out my husband accidently set the pump...

You don't want to swim in water that has algae... 1st ...Make sure you have the correct amount of salt. See you manual for amount needed. Must set you pump timer first and sync your chlorinator between that time, if pump turns off before chlorinator cycle ends, you will get an "Low flow" alarm. Set you pump timer to run 12 hours and the chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hours and should see results within 3 days or so. After that, If you live in an area that is hot, 10 hours pump and 8 to 9 chlorinator... Hope this helps...

13 month frig quit running

Here is what I would do:
I would check to see if the compressor and condenser fan motor is running.cc8d7bd.jpg If the compressor was hot to the touch that would give me a clue.
That would tell me the relay is stuck in start mode causing the compressor to get hot and quit.c6b5f66.jpg I would remove the relay and put my HS410 start pack to see if the compressor comes on and I would check if it was over amping. The amp draw should be around 1 amp. If it is running 7 or 8 amps then the compressor is shot will over heat and die.b261986.jpg The fan motor by the compressor should run when the compressor does. So if the compressor is running but not the fan then you need to look at buying a fan motor. If the fan is running but the compressor is not then you need to buy a relay. If all of that is ok I would next listen for the fan motor blowing in the freezer, no fan no cool. Lots of times fans will make a racket if ice begins to build in the evaporator.c4cad85.jpg They will get louder and louder. Then the ice will build to the point the fan won't blow.
I would need to check for a bad defrost heater or terminator if that is the case. Do this test: unplug the ice box and let it sit for 3 or 4 days till it completely thaws out. Then plug it back in. If it begins to work ok then you KNOW you have a defrost problem. Replacing the defrost thermostat and heater is not very difficult, you still need to let it thaw out to do it. Even if you called me out there and I said it was a defrost problem I would still have to leave and come back 3 days later. If you suspect it is the defrost then go ahead and clean out the ice box and let er sit for 3 days. Then until you can fix it just unplug it once a week like grandma did back in the 40s before auto defrost. That's all the smart pills I have. Post a model and I could be a bit more specific because you could have adc0c1e867.jpg or a timer a control board instead of a mercury based control and in that case their is much more to check. For instance if you had an old schoo timer,8c078f4.jpg it might be stuck in defrost. It might just take moving that timer screw forward to get it unstuck. Don't know until I see a model number.

Goodman 3 ton heat pump - condenser fan motor gets hot and stops running. Have tried 3 motors. Heat of the day it stops.

did you get a motor with the same amps? did you check to what the amp draw is on the old motor to the new? reason is different amp ratings on motors need dfferent blade pitches, also 2,3 or 4 blades pull different cfm. is the motor a belly band mount or does it hang by studs? also check to see if the capacitor is the correct uF. hope this helps you feel free to ask any question if this does not help you.
