UNFORTUNATELY YOUR PUMP IS MOST LIKELY SORTED
IT IS POSSIBLE IT MAY DRY OUT HOWEVER UNLIKELY
STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE MOUNT OR HAVE EQUIPMENT MOUNTED AT LEAST 5 FT AWAY FROM POOL 1 TO 1.5 FT HIGH
MANY LOCAL POOL STORES CAN TEST YOUR MOTOR TO TELL YOU FOR CERTAIN. HOPE THIS HELPS.--CHARLIE POOL PROS

GFCI Breaker tripping when turned on


Try running the motor in the dark. You may find it arcs to the chassis of the motor and that is your culprit. Had same thing on a hot tub 10 years ago. The professional techs tried everything for me. i finished the last part at 10pm and turned the motor on and saw the arc then trip the gfci. Good luck

Pool pump issue


Copy following link to identify Hayward product and download product manual with troubleshoot section:
http://www.hayward-pool.com/prd/In-Ground-Pool-Manuals_10201_10551_14502_-1___I.htm
Select 'Pumps: above ground' or scroll down to same
Typical troubleshoot section:
Low flow "Check for clogged strainer or suction line, plugged discharge line, air leak in pipes or tubing, bad impeller"
Noisy pump "Check for air leak, foreign matter in pump housing, worn out bearings etc"
Air in line due to loose pipe or tube, clogged intake and outfow, and bad pump is common to both symptoms.

What is a GFI device


A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is a special receptacle that acts like a circuit breaker when a ground fault is detected. It is very important to connect things such as pool pumps to this type of device

My Hayward 1 hp super pump will run for a second and then trip the gfci. What has happened? Thanks.


Normally the GFCI is doing its job.
Water is getting into the internal of the motor.
Try replacing your Shaft Seal

Switch is turned on but pump would not run. shaft turns by hand


It's junk made by Hayward. I've gone through two motors and am starting to hear the familiar noise of another motor about to fail.

My hayward pool pump not working,forget to close the air vent before pump started and is water allover the pump,what to do?


Water sprayed on the pump occasionally shouldn't hurt it but it might cause a ground fault circuit interupter (GFCI) to trip. If you turn on the pump and literally nothing happens then most likely the the GFCI has tripped. If it hums then this is a different issue. If you have a volt meter you can open the timer box and check whether power is available to the timer. If no power is available in the timer then it confirms that the pump is probably ok. Checking your circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker or finding a tripped GFCI then either one can be reset and your pump will probably run without a problem.

I hope this helps.

My hayward super pump keeps tripping my GFI. The trouble locates to my pump


It could be an overly sensitive GFCI. If you replace it first, because it is cheaper than a motor, then you can determine whether you need a new motor.

I hope this helps.

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
