Hayward (AO Smith 1.5HP) is melting the black wire at the spade. Did it once and and I put new spade on it and it just did it again after about 30" of pumping. I've already ordered a new pump (based on the other thread) since this one is dying anyway...very noisy and about 8 years old in salt air environment. But I'd like to get this one running over the weekend to avoid a swamp and to be able to use the pool for some of the last days of the season.
Anything obvious to look at? Pump seems to run normally (until it melts that wire!). No more noise than usual. Thanks much! Steve
