Considering this Hayward pump has only been pumping off and on for 24 hours, it's is now humming and not turning on. The housing is hot, hotter than I would have expected a pump to be. I ran the pump 4 hours some on high yesterday and some times low after I glued all my connections the day before. I turned it off for the night as I wanted to watch it. I was skimming dog hair ( she discovered the pool and had a few jump ins) and had the pump on high after for about an hour, emptying the skimmer basket and sock frequently. It was on low some today also. I shut of the pump to use the power cord to drill and reconnected and now the new Hayward is humming. Our sun is intense-any idea if external temp has much to do with overheating?
Husband says 15 amp 3 prong 50 ft extension cord should be ok. Manual doesn't seem to like extension cords. In manual it was under Motor hums but does not start: Check centifugal switch to see if stuck open or binding of motor shaft,
Manual does say it has an overheat shut off too.
Just when it was going so well. We are planning on having an electrician come out for it's own electricity.
