Just ran into this problem today on the Hayward Ecostar SP3200DR pump. Tried a couple of suggestions, turning the power off, making sure the motor spins, screws are tight, none of them worked. Any other suggestions or do I need a new pump?
Tony, where your pump RPM speed is at 3450, that's also the prime speed so there is not really a pump priming time for you, except at the lower RPM times.My new Hayward TriStar VSP.
So about the GFCI, what is it exactly that you want to know? The GFCI is the outlet or circuit breaker? I'm not very electrically inclined, so pictures would help.
Question for anyone with an SWP in a climate like AZ. What speeds do you run your pump and for how long? The tech has mine set to go on at 9 PM - 12 AM at 3450rpm. Then from 1 AM to 5 AM at a lower RPM. The old pump they had it run at the lower RPM first from 9 PM - 3 AM, then from 3 AM - 5:30 AM at the higher RPM. I also noticed the pump takes 5 minutes to prime up when the old pump took only 2 minutes.
