recently had a hayward 3200vsp installed to replace a 1hp jandy stealth. Since installing the new pump the gfci in my basement keeps tripping randomly. I recall this only happening once last year, but since replacing the pump it happens regularly. It doesn't trip while priming or running at high speed. Seems to trip only when running at 1000 or 1725 rpm. * My programming is 7-7 at 1725 and then 7-7 at 1000. *
When we first turned on the power it tripped right away because a wire was bent too much. Now, it runs fine for hours or multiple days between trips. * I've jiggled the wire while the pump is running but this didn't do anything. *
The pump is on a dedicated 15A breaker in my sub panel connected to a 30A gfci inside. There is also a switch between the pump and breaker (from the old pump). *One interesting thing was when it was first installed, I turned off the switch when leaving for work and when I returned the gfci was tripped. * Nothing else would have been on, just power was on. *
I thought it might be one of my other breakers in the sub panel, so yesterday I had just the pump and heater powered and it tripped. Heater wasn't on, it only had power for its clock. So far today, it's only the pump but it hasn't tripped (yet). *
Could it be the pump? Or heater? * Maybe it's just a faulty gfci in my main panel. * No breakers or wires have been changed yet. I'm worried the constant loss of power may cause damage, especially if my heater was running when it happens. * *I don't think it's load related as I've had the pump running at 2500rpm and heater on for over 8 hours simultaneously with now issue. Again, only happens when no one is there to see it!
