Question about Sta Rite StaRite Duraglas Pump 1 12 HP Single Speed

1 Answer

I have a 1 1/2 hp A.O. Smith motor with a Stayrite pump. Motor was rebuilt by my motor/pump guy last spring and not put into use until 6 weeks ago with a rebuilt stayrite pump. Yesterday the motor started smoking and cut off. It will then come on again and then cut off while smoking. Why is this happening on a rebuilt motor after only 6 weeks of service?

    No lightning strikes at my house or surges. Motor was in storage for about 4 1/2 months after I was told that it was rebuilt. It was then put into service for about 6 hours a day for 5 weeks....then poof, it smokes and cuts off. Maybe Greasy dropped a bone in it!!

LIGHTING OR POWER SURGES ARE THE BIGGEST KILLER OF PUMP MOTORS. ASK THE GUY WHO REBUILT IT IF HE CAN HELP YOU OUT. I'M LOCATED IN FLORIDA AND ITS THE LIGHTNING CAPITAL ! LAST STORM WE HAD IN 5 MINUTES THERE WAS 1000 STRIKES AND THE LAST BIG STORM 68,000 STRIKES. HECK I'VE BEEN HIT AND SEEN STRIKES JUST YARDS AWAY FROM ME.. COOL, BUT NOT , IF'N YA KNOW WHAT I'M SAY'N

    OH I KNOW THE GUY THAT REBUILT IT STUCK A TIMER ON IT, SO IT WOULD GO UP IN SMOKE, SO HE COULD REBUILD IT AGAIN FOR YOU.. I HAVE HAD MY MOTORS LAST 8 YEARS AND THATS PUSHING THE LIFE OF A SHAFT SEAL THERE 3-6 YEARS. DID YOU MAKE THIS GUY MAD ? I FEEL BAD FOR MY CUSTOMER THAT AT LEAST DON'T GET A YEAR OUT OF MY MOTOR REPAIRS AND HELP THEM OUT.
    BUT IF YOU RAN OR STARVED THE PUMP FOR WATER AND IT HAS LEAKED WATER INTO THE MOTOR , THAT VOIDS WARRANTY AND IS NOT THE RE-BUILDERS FAULT !
