Hayward Pool Pump
I just bought a HAYWARD SP2605X7 Super Pump 3/4HP pool pump without a cord. It can be used on either a 115vac or 230vac line and the one I am replacing was previously using 115vac. It has a jumper which I moved as the diagram specified to line up the arrow to point to 115 (it basically just disconnected one of the connectors). I then connected the cord to ground screw, then the two screws. I plugged it in and got a hum. I very quickly unplugged it and rechecked the wiring. The diagram said the "line" should be on bottom screw. The hot was on top screw so I swapped the wire connections. I then retried and got a quick spark when plugging it in. I'm out of ideas on what I though was a 5 minute job. I checked the voltage ad its 120 from source outlet, I also checked cord and its OK. Please help!
