Pump Motor Buzz

zooming993April 14, 2013

Made a stupid mistake yesterday. I replaced the seals in my Hayward Super Pump and when I reassembled it I didn't realize the white 120/230 connector wasn't pressed firmly on the 220 tabs and when I put power (220) to the motor it buzzed and tripped the circuit breaker. When I opened it up I found the white 120/220 power selector connector was set between the 120 and 220 setting. Did I fry the motor or could it be something like a burn out capacitor?

Thanks for your help.

yes try the capacitor first! cheapest root and that is probably what it is. or you could have blown breaker. i'm sure you didn't kill the motor!
