Question about Hayward 3/4hp Super Pump Inground Pool Pump 115/230 Volt # Sp2605x7
Well, if it was a new motor, chances are you either hooked it up wrong, or one of the hot wires grounded out. Shut power off of course before you do anything else. Take the electrical access cover off the back of motor and inspect the connections carefully. if it popped like you say and smoke came out you should easily see black marks where something fried. Often the insulation on the wire can break, tear, or be exposed somewhere and touch another wire, connector, or the frame of the motor. Hopefully you did not damage the motor. Assuming that you find a bad wire cut it shorter or replace it back to the last junction box. Either way make sure you have a good clean wire with good insulation. If the wires and/or insulation are old and worn looking it's worth just replacing all three wires that go to the last junction box, timer, etc. It's not very expensive, and easiest to pull all three wires at once anyway. This way you also eliminate the possibility of a bad wire in the conduit where you can't see it. If your unsure after this take it in to a pool pump repair shop, and have them test it. They should at least test it for free and verify it's ok, or tell you if something else burnt out.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!
