B quality video: Bringing a fiberglass hot tub to the dump, then replacing the pump on my concrete hot tub 4 times before finally getting it working.

Centrifugal pumps draw more amps the more material they are pumping and less if they are moving less material. Haven’t finished watching the video but the reason the motor is getting hot could be that the discharge is not restricted enough and it is flowing too much - drawing more amps on the motor.

yeah, you may have 120 in the wire but its connection with the contacts may not be enough to handle that voltage.

I wished I were your neighbor the chit I could learn from you priceless. Damn you can fix anything from editing to big tractors nope I don’t think your tractors 🚜 are sexy 🤫🤫 from mechanic to carpenter to engineer to product management just being hard worker. Ethics driven and being a giant. Have a god week buddy. You still need a slap shot. For your GoPro.

The impeller should spin freely. If it doesn't, either
1. the overheating motor cooked the shaft seal (it's rubber and ceramic), or
2. or the heat cooked out the grease from the bearings, or
3. exposure to the elements (it should be covered) is causing the shaft to rust inside the impeller shaft (this happened to mine). The steel motor shaft is inside the plastic impeller shaft. The steel shaft will rust if exposed to the elements. The shaft rust will rust-jack apart the impeller shaft from the inside, which in turn ruins the impeller shaft seal. You can't inspect the shaft inside the impeller unless you completely disassemble the wet end. But if it's already hard to spin the impeller the wet end has to come apart anyways. Replace both the impeller and the impeller shaft seal.

Just a kind word of caution.... Crimped or wire nuts connections are code accepted, but soldering connections are prone to melting if the connection becomes warm.

I have never had problems with soldered connections. That would have to be very warm for the solder to melt. If it was getting that warm, there would be other problems.

Andrew, the days of 110 / 220 volts ended in the late 1960s. The voltage most commonly distributed is around 120 / 240 volts. Briefly, in the late 1970s, in somewhat wide use were 115 / 230 and 117 / 234.

TIM from Canada my suggestion would’ve been to pull your truck and trailer up to the gate open up the gate as far as you can and I see you have three people there the three of you could’ve put that on the trailer no problem or bring your tractor and put your forks .. or it would’ve been so easy to pull your truck and trailer up and just put the whole thing right on your trailer but I guess this was not an option for you

The scariest thing I've ever done was dismantle a hot tub of a penthouse 25 floors up, used a pair of blocks and really long rope hung from a 5 inch pole tied to the roof.
My heart was beating hard when I swung it off the wall and started lowering the thing.
Also had to shout at a Caren that wanted to suntan directly below...

Check the amp draw. Burnt wires restrict the flow of electricity and increase resistance generating heat.

Very Strange electric ⚡️ Motors you have over there in the 👉 US of A 🧐
Here in Scandinavia and Europe, we use 230 volt in our households 🏡 and electric motors don’t look like that, and they are either 230 volt or 400 volt and normally lasts forever..😉
So the electric wires was not connected correctly? 🤔
Maybe the guy who made the manual was colour blind? 😂
The videos you make are awesome Andrew👏keep the good work 🆙.

Dang, hard to tell if your trying to run off of 120 or 240. I guess 240 as your not using neutral and I couldn't see the wiring diagrams. 2 speed motor? You should check out this article; You will quit the soldering iron.

Now that you measured the voltage check the current you should be less than the full load amperage. You may need to reduce the flow if the current is to high.

If the capacitor is too small the pump will overheat due to overload on one of the coils make sure the capacitor is of correct size for the power output.

It could be the wires. I don't know anything about your motor or the electrical service going to it. However, if your wires are too small of a gauge they will not be able to supply the current required for the motor. But I honestly think it is probably the motor. This is all being written before even seeing the whole video. So I guess I will find out.

CrosshairLunchbox - 17 dager siden
@Andrew Camarata I was considering the Lincoln 180c and 210MP as well, but I'm not building any castles on my property anytime soon. I will definitely be getting something 220/240V or dual voltage, though. I was aiming for around $1000, might just bite the bullet for something like the 211. That view over the trees from the Triangle window area at the top of your castle is frickin' insane. Not many trees like that here in Colorado.

@Andrew Camarata Thanks! I'm looking for something in the shop. I'm looking to "buy once, cry once" so this looks nice. I haven't wired up the 220 yet. I don't do nearly as much welding as you so a 140amp would probably be fine..
