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

It could be the pump is bound up again but it is more likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.

If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Get another brand. Hayward is junk. I had the same exact thing happen. Of course warranty is only one year. I paid out of pocket to replace the motor. Guess what happened 2 years later?

THE PRESSURE ON MY FILTER KEEPS SPIKING. I TOOK


There may be a calcium build up on the fingers, and just cleaning them will not remove the calcium. I would disassemble filter again, then give the fingers an acid bath. Mix about 50 -50 muriatic acid and water and let elements sit in a bucket with the mixture for 15 or 20 minutes, then reassemble and see if this fixes problem. (the quick test is to let the pressure get real high, than add some acid to the skimmer and see if that lowers the pressure at all)

My hayward northstar pump makes a loud noise when


If you have a crack in your basket you may have a clogged impeller. With the power off reach back into the pump through the pump pot with a long screwdriver and feel around. If it feels spongey it there you have a clog. Take the serew driver an use an oceleting motion in a counter clockwise direction this should loosen the clog then reach in with a long set of thin pliers and pull the clog out. This should fix your problem and once water is flowing your pump should quiet down.

Northstar 1.5 hp pump motor is always hot and shuts off for ten minutes aned comes back on. The voltage and amperage is good. What's the problem


It has an internal thermal overload protection device that is turning it off. Once it cools enough it will automatically turn back on as long as whatever switch or timer you have controlling the pump is in the on position. If you are certain it is not due to a voltage or load condition then it would seem the only other problem is mechanical.

In any case try a local electric motor repair shop.
