Hi all,

I have an INSNRG Qi 1100 Variable speed pump that's been playing up.

It switched itself off one day completely and wouldn't turn back on (looked dead). A day later it managed to turn back on but now it will only fire up for a few minutes before switching off... It seems like 2 or 3 minutes is the average run time before turning itself off.

I had to do a significant backwash after a big rain event here, the problems started the next day. I've re-primed the pump, removed blockages from the skimmer, changed the cartridges.

Any ideas what may be wrong? Or things to trouble-shoot.

Run time is set for 8am to like 4pm.

I have three modes: Pump off, auto on, manual. When the pump runs in auto or manual, it will turn itself off and go to "Pump off" screen. Usually, it would stay on whichever mode you choose.

Have you carefully examined the pump programming? Not what you think it is, but look at what is there now. Sometimes electronics glitches and settings get scrambled.

Hmm... I'll look into it. It looks like the computer is glitching, occasionally see the initial loading screen randomly come on. So I think it has something to do with that.

Check that you did not get water into the control panel or connectors. There seems to be lots of problems with pumps with electronic control panels with water getting into the screens or connectors.
