What can cause a motor to burn out in a machine that is only 2 years old.

The control panel has to be replaced and it tripped the circuit breaker.
Repairman has been out 8 times so far and we will be getting a new motor and a new control panel. Can power fluctuations cause this type of problem?

If the breaker is not a ground fault breaker, then you you have an over current situation which could be caused by the pump in the well or the wiring in between.
You said it burnt the wires which tell me that one of two things happened. 1 the pump had a short internally which gradually caused the current to increase which would not of blown the breaker. 2 the breaker was defective and allowed the pump to draw excessive current and burn the wires supplying it's power.
As mentioned above you have a bad pump or shorted wiring.

Location of fuses on w6863

likely cause is that the short that tripped the breaker has caused damage to the electronics. there may be a fuse on a PCB on this model, but I am not 100% on that. you should check for resistance across your pump and motor, and inspect for water leakage as this often causes components to fail in this way.

There are several things that can cause this problem. The first is you just have a bad breaker, next is your heater unit is bad, lastly the pump motor could be bad. There is also the possibility that the motherboard is bad again.

GE Profile JT912 keep tripping circuit breaker

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

. Top element
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

2. Infinite switch
Another reason, why the element would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

Model 4001-ov trips the circuit breaker.

Assuming you have Paragon 4001 40 amp 120Volt timer
By-pass the timer so only pool pump is connected to breaker.
To do this, move wire from terminal 2 and connect to terminal 1.
If breaker no longer trips, then replace timer with Intermatic T101
Crossover wiring: Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic terminal 1.
Paragon terminal 2 to Intermatic terminal 2.
Paragon terminal 3 to Intermatic terminal A
If breaker keeps tripping after bypassing timer, then tighten wires on circuit breaker and test again.
If breaker keeps tripping, then move wires to another same-size breaker.
Breakers trip when they sense overheating.
If motor is causing problem, you might need electrician to track down source of overheating.

15 amp cutler hammer branch feeder type AFCI triped off and will not turn back on. I have tried switching off for 10sec and then back on and still nothing. Also, the test button will not do anything. The...

if the breaker has tripped the test button won't do anything ,, for the breaker to trip something down stream of it is causing this to happen,, check all the switches and or receptacles in the circuit that are controlled by this breaker, 3 types of line problems cause tripping,, ground to line, Line to line, and line to neutral. in this ,, also consider that extension cords, faulty appliances , ( lamps, radios, anything plugged in with a feedback short ) will cause the breaker to trip. even a nail to hang a picture that pierced the wire can cause this, add to that , a AFCI breaker will trip much more easily than one thats not, or even a GFI breaker, , try this, if you have the knowledge to do electrical work in a panel, if not get someone who is, switch the tripping breaker with another one of the same value, ( in this case 15 amp) see if the one you put in place of the one thats giving you problems trips. If it doesn't, you have a weak or bad breaker, so just replace that one, if it does, your going to have to trace out that entire circuit to find the reason for the feed back into the panel

Intermatic t10004 control panel trips the circuit breaker

That circuit breaker is letting you know that you've got a problem in the electrical wiring.... What's next is to turn the power off to BOTH legs of the breaker.
Begin by physically inspecting all the connections in the timer box, and at the breaker and all the way to the pump motor. Make sure all connections are dry, and there's no water in any of the conduits...this will cause a short circuit and trip the breaker. If there's any bare power leg wires touching a grounding point , this can cause the breaker to trip. Lastly check the motor on the pump; on the motor end, there should be a cap you can remove and use a crescent wrench to make sure the motor shaft is moving freely. It could be jammed with debris....this happens around my pool often because I'm surrounded by trees with needles. If the motor cannot turn freely, this will cause the breaker to blow... I'm pretty sure that your timer isn't the issue... Please let me know what you find out.

Tripping a circuit breaker (by any device) is an issue that is not easily (safely) addressed on-line. Besides an actual problem with the device in question, one must consider: a) Too many high current devices already on the circuit (toasters, microwaves, washing machines, etc.) that contribute/cause the issue. b) A circuit breaker that trips much more easily than it should (from tripping too much - common problem), and should be replaced.
c) The device in question needs the compressor replaced (very rare in a two-year old device), but can become damaged during shipment - on it's side. d) Damaged sub-component (eg. one of the fans), probably easily found by locating the source of the noise.
