View Full Version : bad pump?
Pump 1 low speed doesnt work,high speed only works for 15 seconds then turns off.Then pump 1 becomes inoperable. When I try to activate pump 1 ,I hear a click. Pump 2 works fine. Is pump 1 broken? Any comments welcome ,thanks in advance.
(220, 3hp, 2 speed pump)
It does sound like your spa pump (http://www.hottubworks.com/SpaParts/PumpsSideCenterDischarge.php) may be bad but first I would push the jet button and when you hear the relays click then take a voltage reading going to the motor.

If it's constantly running, it might burn out faster. But there are pumps that are made for 24 hrs of use. The only change you can make is to have it turn off for 30 minutes if it gets 3 degrees over the set temp.
