Just yesterday, I believe my pump overheated and stopped running. After I allowed it to cool down and tried turning it on again, it doesn't seem to have the same suction power. I've emailed Hayward for a manual so I can try to see if that would help. But since I've always found this forum so helpful, I thought I'd send a note out here.
Some background. Bought this house in October. Have been periodically cleaning the pool with the pump running about 1-2 hours a day. Couple weeks ago, I cleaned out the filter and had the pump running for about 5 days straight. Just 3 days ago, I backwashed and cleaned the filter again and started shocking the pool. Then the pump failure. Now when I turn it back on, there's a low murmr, not the usual "roar".
Could I have put the fitler back in incorrectly? Could there be a clog in the suction line?
