I have my Jandy ePump installed since about October 2010. If i stop its operation from basically any speed, it will make a small noise. That noise is somewhat similar to the noise you get when you press on the brakes on a bike (rubber pads)
The noise lasts for 1-2 seconds till it completely stops.
I need to know if that is normal or maybe it is a sign that something is not lubricated correctly and that it will eventually fail/start leaking if it is the shaft seal or bearings.
The other issue is the Power Wattage that it displays on the JEP control screen. I also hooked up an AMP meter and voltmeter and compared the Power VxI to the reading reported and go very large discrepancy.
The wattage reported on the JEP was:
912 Watts @ 2750 RPM while measuring 7.9A @ 239V (1888 Watt calculated)
115 Watts @ 1350RPM while measuring 1.5A @ 239V ( 358 Watt calculated)
Do you think the power factor is 1/2? What is the utility power meter measures/bills the total or the half?
