Those pumps are dual voltage...Are you certain you connected it correctly for the voltage present? If the motor is set up for 230V (as it usually is when purchased new) and you only feed it 115 volts it will heat up and then act as you are describing. The side of the motor will have a diagram for how to reconnect the motor if necessary.
If connected correctly you would have a voltage issue in the line to the pump (unlikely). Check the voltage present at the motor terminals under load and look for a drop of more than 10%. If this is the case you will likely need an electrician.
Like I said though, it is usually because of wrong voltage setup for the problem you describe.

Where hose plugs into unit, there is a large stainless screw. Turn counterclockwise to allow more water thru hose and get more sweeping action.

Make sure that the opening at the end of your pool cleaners sweep hose is not blocked by the sweep hose scrubber. If this does not work, you will need to adjust the sweep hose screw as mentioned above. The only thing that I would add about that is to make sure that you turn your booster pump off before you make adjustments. Hope this helps! I have a copy of the users manual for this model. Let me know if you need it and I can give it to you.

The hose connected on the interior of the polaris could be disconnected. seperate the housing and you will see the hose. Or you need more pressure at the wall. Try closing are reducing the amount of flow to the skimmers to up the flow at the wall connection. Your back up valve should pull the polaris off the steps. Set the rotating jet propulsion on rear to 11: 00 position.
