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

Since you mention the motor being hot I am guessing you meant to type "your pump is mkaing a high pitched...". If that is the case, your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel. Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

Vari flo handle not working properly


Hi,

Which model year VariFlo?
  • Some model years do not take a spider gasket as there is spider gasket type bead molded into the diverter/key hub assembly.
  • Spider Gasket, raised bump should face up & gasket should be glued down down to prevent it moving.
  • Spring & nylon washers could also be bad.

My Hayward Tristar 1.50 HP pump is 3 years old, and recently developed a high-pitched humming noise that is causing a noise disturbance. The performance seems to be operating okay, but it never used to...


sounds like the bearings are going out on the motor. The noise will increase as they wear out more until it locks up and throws the breaker. You can have the motor rebuilt or just replace the motor. Consult a pool professional to help out with this.

I turned the pump on and it is making a humming noise but is not working


the most common problem for the symptoms you describe is a bad start capacitor. There should be a hump on the motor. Remove the two screws that attach it and replace the capacitor inside with an exact match. If it has a start/run capacitor, it may located under the end cover of the motor.

We have a hayward pump and the motor keeps stopping and tripping the circuit breaker. What could it be?


The motor might be too powerful for the line it's on, (usually a pump should be on a somewhat dedicated line) no Ac's running on same breaker.
An extension cord longer then 6ft is also a suspect in not allowing the pump the draw enough power.
The pump may not be drawing enough water, overheating and tripping the breaker, or the motor might have rust on the inside causing the armature not to spin freely, and shut off. (usually motor will make a high pitch noise) while running)
