    Do I need a new seal plate?

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    I looked closer at the shaft seal, and that black rubber washer looked out of place, so I went to the pool store and bought another one, and there is no black rubber washer on it, so I have no idea where that came from, but clearly it was preventing the ceramic on ceramic. I replaced both seals...

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    So I removed the motor from the pump housing, and also removed the impeller, and secured the motor, and it runs perfectly - the shaft spins when I turn on motor. So now it seems the motor is fine, and it has to do with my assembly of the parts. Here are some photos of the parts and seals. Do...

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    So I just took off the impeller, and noticed that the pump seal thing that looks like a spring, was on backwards. I corrected that, and the impeller seems to spin more freely now. Wired it all up and same issue. It is like a humming sound that sounds like the motor is getting power but not...

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    I just watched a video of how freely the impeller should spin, and mine is definitely not like that. What would cause that?

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    What does that mean "binding", and how do I resolve that?

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    You are correct, the old one is in the 115V position. So now that we know I have the right voltage, and my wiring is correct, then what? Is it likely I have a bad capacitor on a brand new motor? Anything else to look at?

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    Voltage is reading 123V coming into the timer box.

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    I did not touch the jumper on the old motor and it appears to be in the 230V position. If my wiring was 230, then wouldn't I have black, red, and green wires, instead of black, white, and green? Here is my timer wiring. I will go test the voltage, but I am 99% sure it is 115V.

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    I think I may have figured it out. The black wire is supposed to be in the first screw, not the one by the jumper. I actually didn't think it mattered which terminal the black and white wires go to, but I just read that it should be the opposite of how I did it, so I am going to swap the wires...

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    Here is a pic. I noticed on the old motor, that the jumper was in the 230V position, but I am pretty sure my setup is 115V, so I moved the jumper to the 115V position. As far as the shaft spinning freely, when I pulled the motor from the pump, and tried turning the plastic piece attached to...

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    Sure, let me go pull the motor and get a photo. I know the shaft spins freely before I hooked up everything, but I will make sure. Back in a bit.

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    So I just replaced the motor, and turned it on, and all I hear is a faint humming, but it is for sure not spinning or anything. Any suggestions? I have read it could be incorrect voltage, stuck impeller, or bad capacitor. It is a brand new motor. I am running it in 115, and I moved the...

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    I went ahead and cleaned them up real good and I think they will be fine. Why is there so much corrosion on motor?

    Do I need a new seal plate?

    I am replacing my motor due to bad bearings, and when I removed the seal plate and mounting plate from the motor, I noticed they were looking like this. Can I just clean these up, and reinstall with the new motor, or do these look like they need to be replaced? Obviously there is a lot of...

    Hayward pump warranty on a warranty replacement?

    Thanks for all the info. I am pretty certain that it is the bearings. I have been in this house for 10 years, and in that time, I have replaced the motor in 2013, then the entire pump including the motor (2016), and then motor itself 3 yrs later in 2019, and now about 2 years later, the motor...

    Hayward pump warranty on a warranty replacement?

    So they do not provide a warranty on an item that was replaced under warranty because the original purchase date is outside the 3 years?

    Hayward pump warranty on a warranty replacement?

    Not sure if new seal was installed. Hayward had an authorized service company replace the motor so he probably did the new seal. They covered the parts and I think I had to pay like $150 for the installation. The original pump was purchased in 2016, and the warranty replacement of motor was in...
