SOURCE: trips breaker, windings not open, no continuity from windings to frame. startsfor split second then trips breaker. Breaker is ok

ASSUMING THIS IS SINGLE PHASE HAVE YOU CHECKED THE CAPACITORS. START CAPACITOR COULD BE BAD OR BURNT LEAD. HAVE YOU MADE SURE THE PUMP IS NOT LOCKING UP. POINTS IN THE PRESSURE SWITCH LOOK GOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

SOURCE: pump just hums but wont start

Sounds like its frozen and causing a very heavy load on your circuit. If the motor gets hot within seconds, its shot and needs replacing. Have you attempted to turn the motor over by hand ?

How to manually reset an AO Smith 2 hp motor?


If you did not press a reset ( and even if you did) the motor is damaged and that is causing the circuit breaker to trip. You need to have the motor inspected to see if the damage is repairable or if you need a new motor. A local electric motor repair shop should be able to take care of that for you. The thermal overload has reset itself if after cooling down the motor is trying to start but trips the breaker.

To be certain it is the motor, disconnect the line leads and be sure they are insulated from ground and one another. Turn the breaker back on. It should stay closed which confirms it is the motor tripping it when connected.

If for some reason the breaker still trips, there is a problem with the electrical circuit feeding the pump.

My pump will not come on


Does it hum at all or make any noise? If not, look for a tripped GFI or circuit breaker. If it makes noise at all, it is getting power and likely needs to be replaced.

For a quote on a new one, get the nameplate information off the motor and contact us at www.arrowmotor.net

Overheats and trips off


internal thermal over loads in motor are working properly! how old is the motor? double check all vavles on the intake and discharge line to make sure that they are open? sounds like the pump is pushing against what is known as dead head pressure. obstruction in discharge line! if valves are ok you can take the jet covers off (the piece that helps direct flow of water) which will relieve some of the pressure should allow it to run without tripping tgermal overloads. if none of this works replace motor!!

See if there is another part number for that breaker (CET51 ABM).
