Pool pump, which often freezes during startup




by Christophe » 30/06/15, 22:48

I have a pool pump that I put on programmer (1 / 2h per day) and that tends to block start randomly but fairly routine (say 3 days running ok and the 4 ko) ... to restart I have to push the heat and do some laps vacuum motor by hand (by removing the air turbine cover) ... after it restarts ...

How to solve this problem? The only thing that I see for the moment would be a weak start capacitor? Change him? For a bigger can be?

Change the capacitor by a same value.

Blunder there are several kinds of capacitor whose permanent.

Will see http://lobetoutillage.be/ C is a Marche en Famenne.

They are of very good advice. J had the same problems with my hydrophore pump. Their prices are about right.

So as a weakness of the condo after you?

Why do not oversize it a little?

Your capacitor is probably defective.
It happens even when they are sealed.

Put a more powerful capacitor could be justified if t have a voltage of less than 230v. which is my case between 115 and 227v, the small joys of the countryside. Another concern arises, the engine being planned for the 230 - 240 v, the latter is subjected to a high amperage, since the voltage that the feed is lower than expected or of overheating.

The capacitor value should be calculated, it does not improvise s. The risk of motor burnout.
If this fonctionnai before, remains with a capacitor of the same value. For permanent 22uf, c is just under € 10 room at Tecniba (Bastogne) the price is about the same in March. I ve been to Bastogne, c is less far. : Cheesy:

In March he will advise you, c is in their ropes.

Ok I'll replace it with an equivalent model so ... supplier for Velleman I think (I work at the store) will have what it takes, if I look at your addresses, thank you

I put some pictures of the assembly that I am for breakfast :)

freestanding pool enhanced by me :)

Here are the pictures:

booster pump group (hydrophor Belgium) removed for the season and converts pool pump:

Image

Rather than using crappy cartridge pump filters provided (or not) with the Chinese self-supporting swimming pool I used this recovery pump (largely oversized = just 1 / 2h a day is enough) and a drinking water filter (4 € cartridge in my plumber).

The connection to the booster tank is temporarily blocked and will be used to put a hose to use when the pump is running recess (clean feet, water games ...)

The pool (during filling of where the folds):

Image

My main improvement: mounting a skimmer (just € 15 at Leclerc!)

Image

When the pool is busy I will go up a small support not to overwork the pool.

ps: the buoy stork that is not forgotten where I come from ... : Cheesy:

Hi all here is a guy who figured out how to inflate the pool of the same type without effort, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57JwUQ44MNI
or else like that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0sGTygQt_w

I guess it's the ram that filled the pool : Mrgreen:
I 'd once read that somebody had used a dish washer pump as pool pump https://www.econologie.com/forums/arrosage-d ... t7357.html

cordially all

Hey, I'm not so lazy that it does not zap a little oli foot lol

This is not the ram but that is water from the same stream that fills the small pool :)

To return to the original problem of failed start, here the capacitor of this engine:

Image

16 uF so this is not a start capacitor but of operation, see Andre message on this topic: https://www.econologie.com/forums/quel-conde ... t9839.html

It is wired // on 2 3 the phases that go into the engine:
2 white son = output capacitor
1 white wire = entry to the engine
2 black son = output switch (probably bipolar)

Image

This corresponds to the wiring diagram (without the thermal fuse and colors):

Image

The pump 800W:
Image

I'll change the capacitor by another of the same capacity ...

Ah, here are the pictures of the final cut:

Skimmer with small econological support that goes well:

I received capacitors: https://www.econologie.com/forums/post287801.html#287801

I will replace the original with a uF 16 15 25 uF uF .... it does not fit into the hood and for security reasons (child pool) I did not really want to make an external offset
