    Pump won't turn on - Jandy Stealth

    I went out yesterday to a dead calm pool.

    My pump & cleaner were ON but no water was moving. So I checked and sure enough all was quiet. My pump just isn't running at all. No noises etc. When I try to turn it on at the panel I just hear a click in the panel, no noise at all from the motor/pump.

    Is there something I should check before calling a repairman? There are no breakers tripped and I have power to the panel. That's about as far as I got.

    Thanks

    Is the pump on a timer? If it is I'd check to make sure it's working.
    Does it make any noise when it tries to start?

    Bama can help you

    I had this same problem last summer. help-pump-wont-come-on-suspect-electrical-problem-t52254.html

    My timer had been fried by lightning and I was able to figure it out and bypass timer. I didn't replace the timer until this summer......and those pics I took saved me. I'm no electrician and didn't remember what I'd done to bypass it a year later. The pics pretty much walked me through my timer reinstall this summer.

    Check electricity voltage starting at the pump and work your way back.

    It's not the timer I don't think. I can put the panel in service mode to manually fire the pump and it still doesn't work.

    I can post pics tomorrow of my setup.

    But if the timer is bad, the manual mode won't work either. I'd break out the multimeter and rule out the timer.

    It sounds like you don't have a timer as such. Is it an automation system?

    Let me take some pictures and post. I'm honestly not sure what I have. I do my schedule and operations from the Jandy remote.

    If you try to manually start the pump, can you hear the relay actuate?

    Re: Pump won't turn on - Jandy Stealth

    If you hear the relay clicking then either there's a problem with the pump or you're not getting power to the pump. Are you comfortable testing for voltage at the pump?

    What ended up being the issue on this? I am having the exact issue and I have the exact equipment. Thanks!

    Re: Pump won't turn on - Jandy Stealth

    Same issue as well.
    Automation systems make a click when the relay actuates, but no noise or action at the pump.
    I tried swapping out the capacitor, but nothing changed.
    I opened up the Hayward Aqua Logic system, nothing looks blown out.


    Update:
    I tested w/ the multimeter, this was a big help: How To Use a Multimeter to Test a Pool Pump Motor - Voltage - INYOPools.com


    power was getting to the pump. I cycled it on/off a few more times then heard a pop and saw smoke coming from the motor.
    Not what I was hoping for!

    Re: Pump won't turn on - Jandy Stealth

    The clicking doesnt mean the power is getting to the pump, use your multimeter or a touch voltage indicator to see if there is current to the motor. If there is power to the motor your doa at this point.

    Re: Pump won't turn on - Jandy Stealth

    I am having the same issue....guessing the pump is toast?

    This is usually an indication the the breaker in the panel is tripped. Even though it doesn't look tripped go back and forth a few times. The jandy system will show it on but that doesn't mean power is getting to pump.

    Well my waterfall pump is working along with all the other Jandy functions..the unit has power it just clicks when trying to cycle the pump on..Maybe the pump is what is clicking but something is trying to come on..I think my motor might be fried?

    Is the waterfall pump on the same breaker. Usually not.
