Hello I am new here and need help and I know I am missing some information but I just bought this house and pool so I have what I have and that's it:
I have a Jandy Plus HP Pump. At closing, I was told the pump had run dry and had to be replaced but the good news was I was getting a brand new $800 pump. I got here and what I have is what I suspect to be a grossly undersized and extremely cheap replacement motor bolted onto the Jandy pump and well it runs ok under 60 degrees F, as soon as the ambient temp hits 70 degrees F, it overheats and shuts off and then only cycles on and off. I never saw the original motor but the I do have the paperwork for the pool which is only 4 years old and the quote and the spec sheet both state 1 1/2 HP Jandy 2 speed motor. The problem is I do not have the SF or SFHP off the original motor.
I do have all the information off the motor which malfunctions under normal summer temperatures:
US Motors 1081 Pool Motor Extreme-E
SF AMPS 8.0/2.9
What I am desperately hoping is that I can replace this motor with whatever it should have been and not have to replace the entire pump. Is this likely to solve the problem? Is there someplace I can get the SF for the original motor?
This hasn't been a problem in winter but there is inline chlorination so I will need to run the pump during the day pretty soon I have reason to suspect the replacement motor since the other repair work was done in a very shoddy manner. For that reason I am afraid to call any local company for help in fear they might be the ones who did the very bad repair in the first place! I also would prefer not to mess around with impellers and capacitors. If this is the wrong motor, I just want to buy the right one so i can enjoy the pool.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
