It seems like I keep burning out my pool pump motors. Is there possibly something that is causing it, or is it just bad luck? The original one that came with the house burnt out. Im not sure how old it was. I bought a Century Motor replacement that lasted less than a year. I bought that one Amazon and had issues getting it replaced via warranty so I had to purchase another new Century Motor from Leslies. That one just burnt out after 1 year and 10 months.
So one motor lasted less than a year, and the other lasted less than 2 years.
When I say they burnt out what is happening is they turn on run for a bit (an hour maybe, not really sure) get really hot then just turn off. I did have some algae recently that I was trying to get rid of, so there have been a couple days of 24+ hours of constant running. Not sure if that caused anything.
Anyway, is there something that could possibly be causing this that I can look into?
