I'm in Cedar Park, TX (Outside of Austin) and had a pool put in last Winter (filled Feb, 2013). I have had pretty consistent issues with the Hayward Ecostar Variable Speed Pumps. I have a Pro Logic Panel that controls it.
I continually have a Drive Error! Pump Has Stalled on the panel, and on the Pro Logic Controls the Check System light comes on, and the pump shuts off.
I have been trying to find a resolution, and have been working with my builder Texas Pools and Patios who have been awesome. They are as stumped as I am, and Hayward has been working with us as well. I'm looking for anyone that may have seen this problem.
I changed the Prime from Auto Sense to 3 Minutes that I saw on another thread.
The strange thing is it usually occurs in the afternoons, during timer 3, and not in the morning. Hayward came out and suggested that we limit it to 2933 RPM vs full of 3450, saying the plumbing possibly can't handle. It seems to handle it fine all morning on Timer 1, it runs at 3450 without issue for 4 hours. I worked outside on the patio on the laptop all morning to watch, and it doesn't kick off.
One other strange item, when it shuts down, I can use the remote, and as soon as I adjust the pump lower, it comes back one, immediately. Any help, if you have some, would be much appreciated.
