Hi, I have a Waterway Hi-Flo pump that is 3yrs old. A few days after taking it out of winter storage, I live in the NE, the pump started tripping the GFI inside the garage, I checked all the wiring for moisture and there was none, changed the GFI and same result. Change the plug where the pump is plugged in, and it still popped the GFI. I plugged it into another circuit inside the garage an it tripped the breaker. I have also tried to plug in a light and a stereo to the same circuit and it worked fine.
After leaving it alone for a couple of days, I decided to plug it in again and after tripping the breaker a couple of times it started up and worked fine for another week. Today it started doing the same thing again. The wiring was done by a certified electrician and the pool is grounded.
The motor spins freely and I even changed the capacitor. It hasn't rained in over 5 days here.
Can anyone help me with this issue?
