Make sure the motor spins by hand, then make sure the contacts on the v shaped start switch as closed when motor is off and make sure the capacitor is good a bad one usually leaks black stuff all over. To avoid buying a capacitor you might not need have it tested

It is the capacitor but a capacitor usally goes out because the motor is going out. Time for a new motor, You might want to look at replacing the whole pump with an energy effiecent variable speed pump.

Usually, if the motor is extremely loud it is caused by a problem in the motor. It could also be caused by a bad seal but then it usually leaks from between the pump and the motor or an impeller problem. The most likely motor problem causing noise is bad bearings. These bearings are usually not worth replacing because the water that may have caused the bearings to fail have also caused corrosion on the bearing mount.

It won't matter. Put the red on one line and the blue on the other. Motor rotation is fixed and reversing those wires makes no difference.

Remove the rear motor cover and lock the shaft to spin the impeller off. Be sure to note what voltage your old motor was set for and duplicate that setting on the new motor.

We sell the motor at www.arrowmotor.net

You should be hiring an electrician for this repair. If the motor is a 230 volt motor then both wires get hooked up to its own leg (power in). The electrician would make sure the power was off to that circuit, would verify that the motor was correct for that application, would see if the motor was spinning in the correct direction and if not then would switch the two wires onto the two legs that they were attached to. The motor should have some type of ground on it, look at the tag attached to the motor, there is a wiring diagram and a specification list, compare the two motors and make sure they sent you the correct motor.

Super pumps are very easy. If it is a northstar it is more difficult. Super pump. You will need 1 motor, 1 pump seal, 1 diffuser gasket, 1 housing gasket. turn off breaker, disconnect wires -noting whether it is 110 or 220 volts- , unscrew four bolts on back of pump housing (shaft side of motor), pull out motor with rear housing and diffuser (sometimes diffuser sticks inside), on wire side of motor hold shaft with wrench (flathead in some cases, but it is harder), unscrew impeller counter clockwise (like normal screw - you will nee a big pair of channel locks or a strap wrench), there are two pieces of the back housing and once the impailer is off you can remove the half that is closest to the end of the shaft to reveal four more screws, unscrew those four screws. screw back part of rear housing onto new motor. Install new pump seal to front part of rear housing and impeller, slide on front part of rear housing and then screw on impeller while holding shaft on wire side with wrench (only hand tight), replace housing gasket, replace diffuser gasket, slide into front housing and screw in four bolts. If electrical was 110 you will need to move the jumper on the wire end..if it was 220 then just hook kup wires...doesnt matter which is which as long as green or bare goes to the ground screw.

Do not drain a vinyl liner pool mor than half way....ever... If you have a fiberglass, or gunite pool it is important to pull the hydrostatic plug under the main drain cover. If you live down a hill, or where there is a high water table, the water pressure underground can lift the empty pool out of the ground (more common in fiberglass pools). If you have a sand or DE filter switch the valve to waste. make sure that you have the skimmer turned off, and the pump is only sucking from the pool main drain (spa drain closed also), and turn the pump on. Make sure the waste hose is far enough away so you dont add any hydrostatic pressure.

Yes it is very tricky...i always start with the small one because it goes where the pipe goes down. try putting the bottom bracket into the filter and starting with the small one and see what you come up with.

its trying to start check voltage to fan if ok bad fan motor if no check safety circuit

Hayward Pool &... | Answered on Dec 19, 2020

Could the Error code be HS? That is high temperature limit. Perhaps you' don't have enough flow, allowing the heater to heat the water to a temperature higher, than the thermostat setting. Make sure your bypass valve is closed, allowing full flow through the heater. Check your filter pressure differential , and skimmer baskets.
You didn't give your model number, and there are many models. You can go the Hayward website below and select your exact model number and download the manual. The manual will explain each error code.
