Pool: Viking Island Breeze II, 20K gallons Pump: Hayward SP1610Z1MBK 1.5hp
Filter: Cartridge, Salt Cell. Climate: Chicago, pool open May 21-Nov 1
My pump motor is humming again. Pool was installed in 2015 and this is my 3rd motor. I opened the pool without issue 2-3 weeks ago, everything worked great. 3 days ago, I noticed the motor was humming but not turning. Cleaned all filters and baskets, which were not terribly dirty. Checked for leaks or bad seals/gaskets, all in good working order. Killed power, inspected motor, impeller, etc. No obstructions I could find. Decided to replace the capacitor. Hooked back up, still humming. Pool motor is ONE YEAR OLD. Aren't these motors designed to last like 5+ years? Do I really need a new motor? And why am I going through so many?
When I keyed in the serial number of the motor on the site, I got several options. Are they all acceptable?
Your thoughts and ideas are appreciated! Thanks.
