Hey guys!!
I bought a pump for my pool, it was not brand new, but it is in perfect condition and used to work fine in the place I bought it. I attached 2 pictures so you guys can see exactly the pump.

I installed it in my pool and is not working, and I have contacted many pool technicians and they have no idea about Pentair pumps. I am having 2 main troubles with it, first) the pump wont pass 2000 revolutions (it shuts off), and second) When I try to set it in aspiration or recirculation mode it works for about 3 minutes and then it shuts off. Im not sure if the problem is the drive (maybe I should change it) or if you guys have any idea of whats going on!! Thanks for your help, Im really desperate about it. Nice day!!

Is there an alert on the display? Are you running it from the back of the pump(stand alone) or do you have the communication cable set up to an automation?
Yes! I just found out that the display shows over voltage (not sure how to fix that though). And for the second question, no automation, I am running it from the back of the pump!

Thanks for the interest, hope you can help me haha

Welcome to TFP.

Some of your problems may come from the SVRS safety feature that is more trouble then it is worth. That may be why the first buyer dumped it.

You have a multimeter to look at the over voltage error?

Post pics of the pump electrical wiring and the pump CB.

Hi! Thank you

I do not have a multimeter, but if you tell exactly what to look for, I can get one. And sorry for my ignorance (haha) what is the pump CB! (as you can tell I am not actually an expert, actually is my first pump).

Who connected up the pump?
Hi! So these are the pictures, please let me know if you need a specific one, and thank you so much for your help! In the first picture is the pump, you can see the communication cable and in the second picture is the CB and as you can see the cable goes straight to the CB!! I just built the house, and the guy who was in charged of the structure was the one who connected up the pump! I have talked with some guys but they werent able to find the problem (to be fair they were honest and told me they didnt know much about pentair).
