The only way a motor for these units can run backwards is if the internal lead connections of the winding are reversed. On some rare occasions I have seen a failed start cap cause a motor to start in reverse but turning it off and on would fix that. If your start cap checks out OK and the motor is truly running 'backwards' you will need to replace it.

If on the other hand the flow is not going the correct way look into the valves and filter(s) for issues.

Follow diagram on the tag. typically low voltage and high voltage volt are diagramed on the tag. Most manufactures send pumps out already for 220. the A and B terminals are for pump wires. and the lines are for the power cord. follow the diagram and you can't go wrong;

Can you be more descriptive? My guesses are that the motor is wired wrong, the motor is defective, There is a leak in the supply line or the pump and air is getting into the pump, causing the pump to cavitate.

Usually caused by a small air leak somewhere on the pressure side of the system. A check valve on the line coming out of the pump going to the filter will solve problem.

They just press into place and to remove them you pull straight away from the rest of the motor/pump parts.

If you have outtake valves post filter (versus intake pre-filter and motor) you could try choking those down to reduce flow back to the pool but maintain pressure through your pump and filter...

You have an air leak somewhere draining down the system. You might need check valves on the inlet and outlet of pump.

If the pump motor runs continously it probibly is a suction side air leak, check all "O" rings, gaskets and fittings, it could also be a restricted suction screen or filter basket as well, Need more info to get more specific.

The pump seal is leaking and needs replacing and requires removing four 3/8 bolts (9/16) wrench and removing the motor then the diffuser to get to the impeller and seal . A 7/16 wrench holds the rear motor shaft behind the springs and impeller spins off to reveal the seal which has two parts one on the impeller with a spring and one in the seal plate is white ceramic/ porcelan whatever they use. Part number is an SPX1600KA on super pumps and 1500KA wassome above grounds. When replacing do not touch the mating white and black surfaces with your fingers.

There may debris that has passed by the strainer basket and jammed the pump. I've personally got the world's worse pool... it's right next to a deadora tree with small pine type needles...they always get by the strainer basket and sometimes lodge in the pump.
To remedy the this, I take the protective cap off the exposed end of the motor and turn the shaft back and forth with a crescent wrench.
This frees the shaft up, then turn the switch on. You may need to do this a few times.
Also, with the pump off, remove the strainer and reach into the intake and see if anything is lodged in the opening... feel around with your finger to see if you can feel any debris.
If this doesn't solve it, you'll need to unbolt the motor with the pump impeller free from the basket housing. Once free clean the intake and surrounding area of all debris.
Being careful with the o-rings, reinstall. that should get you up and running...
let me know how it goes...
