Question about Hayward Power Flo Lx 1 Hp Pool Pump Sp1580

1 Answer

I have a Hayward power flo lx sp1580z2 pool filter motor. Breaker popped and the motor now only hums when turned on. Did a few searches to see if I could fix it. The shaft spins freely so I thought it was the capacitor. After taking it apart I see no capacitor. Or nothing I think is a capacitor. There is a small connection board with contacts that looks fine. The only other thing in there is a Klixon CGJ133??? From searching online I?m guessing it?s a thermostat that is not available anymore. Replaced with a M2 series. Again that?s from a little googling. Is there a capacitor or anything else in that motor that could be bad or is it the Klixon thermostat I should try changing? Thank you Jay

Jay, to be honest, with all the time your gonna spend searching and trouble shooting the pool is going to turn green and then your going to be stuck with bigger problems. The powerflo pump is a pretty inexpensive pump. Personally id just swap the pump and get it going so the pool stays clear.

Over the winter,tinker with the bad pump and see if you can fix it. If not, trash it. If you can fix it save it for a spare or sell it for 75$ on craigs list and make half your money back you spent on the new one.

My Hayward pump was very noisy but now trips the breaker. I can turn the impeller from the rear pretty easily.


Hayward is synonymous with junk. Let me guess. It's been in service for about two or so years when the noise started. Eventually the motor will burn out. I've gone through two motors and a diffuser on my Hayward pump. It's already making noise again.

My pump stop working. It's 3 months old. There's power to the pump and the switch is on. Is there a internal fuse or circuit breaker


There is part inside the motor that resets automatically if the current is too high. If the motor hums and then switchs off for a while and the retries after a while repeatedly then you may have a bad capacitor. I hope this helps.

We have an older model Hayward Power Pro LX pump. The pump is running but no water is pumping through. Can't find a tech drawing.


well of course you need to make sure the filters are not blocked up, Skimmer basket etc......I have seen on few occasions the impeller shaft has broken, so the pump runs like it doesn't have a trouble in the world.....but the impeller isn't turning, therefore no water flow.
