SOURCE: Rule H53sp-24 pool cover pump trips GFI breaker

GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.

I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.

Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.

Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).

SOURCE: rule 1800 pool cover pump trips breaker

It sounds like the pump motor has shorted. Probably time to invest in another one.

I have hot tub control by Square D QO260GFI. The curcuit has tripped to off position and when I try to flip it to on position it just stays in nutral.


Hi!!

The breaker may be defective is not rated for the load been used or one of the devices the breaker is controlling is either defective and is drawing too much current.

try disconnecting the devices ie: pump motor or heather. one at the time, this is to find out if they work ok by themselves, test one by one. If the pump do not want to start up, it may be the start capacitor. If both devices trip the breaker, Replace breaker.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

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.

Heat pump trips circuit breaker


I seem to have the same problem. But when I reset the breakers, they won't stay in the on position. They go back to the off position. What gives? It is 95F inside the house.
