The other day my pump (hayward super pump sp2607x10) stopped. It later started again. Did the same thing again and when I went to trouble shoot I **** near burnt my hand on the motor housing. There was some water under the pump on the ground. Water steamed off it when I dropped some on it.
I let it cool and took it apart. It was full of salt in the motor housing. Blocking the air vents. Cleaned it as best I could. Made sure the impeller was clean and not binding and replaced it to the plumbing. Runs again but still hot.
I've read a lot of the forums here but since I just bought my house last year in the summer I'm new to pools. The pool is only 4 years old. I've had it for 1.5 summers now. This year the chlorinator went bad (whole other story... Haha) but now the pump is acting up.
I'm not sure if it's "loud" or not. It makes a noise when it's running but nothing crazy loud. A steady humm.
