Question about Hayward 1.5 Hp Northstar High Performance Pump

1 Answer

I have a hayward pump for an in ground pool. Last night we turned off the pump prior to severe weather. This morning when we went to turn it back on, it runs but is made a different sound and smoke started coming out of the pump. First the smoke came from end closest to the impellar then it started coming out the other end. Any idea as to what could be wrong. Please help, I am on vacation starting today and was hoping to enjoy the pool.

Removing the lid from a hayward power-flo matrix


Too Much Pressure????
Are you trying to remove lid when the pump is on? NO, NO, NO

If not, then good! If you have valves before and after the equipment, then close them. Then remove the small 1/4" drain plug to empty the pot. Then try removing the lock ring and open it up.

I've had a problem like this. Can you safely power the pump from a non gfi outlet for a while? Once it runs and whatever is causing this condition dries out, you can plug it back into the gfi.

I think your impeller may be stuck OR your start capacitor has failed. Your pump is going off on over load because it cannot turn or cannot start.

WE have a EC50 system w/1HP matrix. Pump runs


Hayward Matrixs' have a one year warranty.

If it is tripping the circuit that is usually an electrical problem, and has nothing to do with the motor. Open up that back with the motor off and try to turn that shaft with a flat head, if it turns than it is an electrical problem; if it doesn't then contact Hayward directly for warranty information. Hayward is a pain to get ahold of but they are great about honoring their warranties.

The Matrixs' are fairly new and I have yet to see a shaft freeze up.

Hayward above ground pool pump will not start.


sounds like the windings in the motor are shot! but does it have a capacitor? if it does you could simply have a bad starting capacitor so don't let it hum for that will surely scar the windings
