SOURCE: my hayward northstar pump makes a loud noise when

If you have a crack in your basket you may have a clogged impeller. With the power off reach back into the pump through the pump pot with a long screwdriver and feel around. If it feels spongey it there you have a clog. Take the serew driver an use an oceleting motion in a counter clockwise direction this should loosen the clog then reach in with a long set of thin pliers and pull the clog out. This should fix your problem and once water is flowing your pump should quiet down.

SOURCE: We have an older model Hayward Power Pro LX pump.

well of course you need to make sure the filters are not blocked up, Skimmer basket etc......I have seen on few occasions the impeller shaft has broken, so the pump runs like it doesn't have a trouble in the world.....but the impeller isn't turning, therefore no water flow.

Hayward ultra pro lx pump, The On/Off Switch is stuck in the On Position, engine is not running and the breaker is Ok. The On/Off Switch doesn't even want to return to the Off Position. Any ideas what...


Unplug your filter pump motor and remove the back plate. Next, use an Ohm meter to test for continuity at the switch terminals. If you have continuity in both the on and off positions, then you must replace the switch. If not, then you have a short or the pump is wired incorrectly.

My Hayward pump was very noisy but now trips the breaker. I can turn the impeller from the rear pretty easily.


Hayward is synonymous with junk. Let me guess. It's been in service for about two or so years when the noise started. Eventually the motor will burn out. I've gone through two motors and a diffuser on my Hayward pump. It's already making noise again.

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

When I turned my pump off to backwash and then turned it back on it made a humming noise then stopped running. Now it is doing nothing. what could the problem be?


sounds like a bad start capacitor, or there is something (rock, sand, or some debris) caught in the impeller.

The start capacitor not working will cause your motor to hum, then it will overheat and trip the high limit. It won't attempt to come back on until it has cooled. It's a common problem.

try clearing the impeller first, if that doesn't work and the motor shaft spins freely, then it's a capacitor.
