Hayward super pump won't prime

Priming issues are almost always due to a bad gasket or loose fitting.
  1. Remove the leaf trap lid. Examine the gasket for debris, cuts or folds that might prevent a tight seal.
  2. Remove and examine the winter plugs for proper seal.
  3. Remove, re-tape or putty the threaded fitting directly in from of the pump.
  4. Check all unions, fittings and connections from the skimmer and main drain to the pump.
  5. On rare occasions the impeller may be impacted with debris preventing water flow. Remove the four screws holding the motor to the wet end exposing the impeller and examine it. Hayward impellers are also know to break at the shaft. This will sound like the pump is operating but never pumping water.
  6. If everything looks normal, try pouring water over the entire wet end while priming. This will sometimes allow water to fill a void you missed. The pump will probably loose prime again until the issue is corrected.

How do I prime the pump on my VS500

The pump will prime when you turn on the circuit breaker. There is a prime cycle that will run for a couple of minutes to get all the air out of your spa system before the heater will engage.

Verify that your voltage is correct, then check your amps. It sounds like you have a short in the windings causing the motor to overheat. This usually mean replacement. (the repair would be almost as much as a new motor)

System error prime pump again. the pump does not

if the pump is not a self priming pump, it is possible that the windings may have burned out. use a hose to prime and then try in the Maint, position.

Pump problems?

Their can be a number of things.. Is the pump priming. Hopefully it did prime. what usually happens after running for awhile, with no cool water coming in. The water inside the pump basket starts to heat up, then the tubing turns to brownish on the input side of pump and exhaust side. (you could have air leaking in throught the input side, which could result in the pump never priming) Or if it is priming and no pressure (can mean your empellar is clogged up)
