I've had a problem like this. Can you safely power the pump from a non gfi outlet for a while? Once it runs and whatever is causing this condition dries out, you can plug it back into the gfi.

I have a 220 volt gfi breaker tripping its new install how does the gfi wire up


The bi-metal motor overheat protection switch is internal and it is activating probably with or without the ground fault interrupt they prevent electrocution and other devastation, do not modify anything. Do not hesitate, seek a very experienced pool electrician, NOW.

Replaced pool pump motor but breaker keeps tripping


Breakers are mechanical parts and can fail. If none of your components are causing the breaker to trip it's the breaker itself.

My hayward pool pump not working,forget to close the air vent before pump started and is water allover the pump,what to do?


Water sprayed on the pump occasionally shouldn't hurt it but it might cause a ground fault circuit interupter (GFCI) to trip. If you turn on the pump and literally nothing happens then most likely the the GFCI has tripped. If it hums then this is a different issue. If you have a volt meter you can open the timer box and check whether power is available to the timer. If no power is available in the timer then it confirms that the pump is probably ok. Checking your circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker or finding a tripped GFCI then either one can be reset and your pump will probably run without a problem.

I hope this helps.

My hayward super pump keeps tripping my GFI. The trouble locates to my pump


It could be an overly sensitive GFCI. If you replace it first, because it is cheaper than a motor, then you can determine whether you need a new motor.

I hope this helps.

Jandy Stealth 2.0 tripping GFI after heavy rain. Been a week since storm.


Very possibly a bad GFI. GFI's are cheap and worth replacing if in question. also might try hooking up directly to another source and see if it trips a breaker

Switching my hayward pool pump from 230v to 115v. I was told i could just move the jumper, line up the arrows for 115 and be fine but my gfi keeps tripping out?


Setting the pump for 115V wont by itself cause the trip. There is either a ground in the circuit or the GFI is bad. You may want an electrician to test any further than this.
