I did alot of Googling on my problem by turned up very little. I had a small leak at my SWG thats now fixed. As I was feeling around to find just were the leak was I got a good tingle zap! having been electocuted a few times in my life I recognize that 60hz bite imediatly, It was not full force buy was pretty good. Shortly after this I was rewiring my timer box from my small 120v 1HP pump to the 220v 2.2HP pentair WF-6 whisper flow and as soon as i had just one of the phases connected the pump started humming loudly as if it wanted to start. I turned off the timer, connected the other phase and turned the timer on to vacuum the pool. I tought about this and figured their must be a leak to ground in the motor and thats how it had a closed loop and tryed to start. That also can explain my being zapped, although it could potential be the SWG. The SWG is new and the pump is about 5-8 yrs old. So I would be suprised if the zap was from the SWG.
Currently I have the Pentair completly removed and tested in on the dinning room table My woman didn't even say anything about it tonight. So with the whip removed and the external cap disconnected i get about 2 ohms resistance between any of the 4 terminal and ground
That cannot be good! sop I googled and found little, I tryed to take the back housing off and all I got was 4 very long bolts, one now snapped its threads and no longer goes back in. The back cover would not come off. So back together it went and I set it outside.
My question is can anyone who has motor experiance tell me about the humming on one phase and the continuity to ground? The pump is a Pentair WhisperFlow WF-6 1.5HP 1.47Service factor 110/220 wied for 220v there are no GFI's on the equipment as it was installed long before we bought the house, Also there are no external bonding wires anywhere at the slab, I thought that was code forever. House was built in 1977, we belive the pool to be about as old.
Thanks for reading my thread
