Keep popping a fuse

Recommended Posts

dogs

My left ballast fill pump just stopped working. I went ahead and found that the fuse had broke so I changed it out and when I went to turn it back on, nothing happened. Checked the fuse again and it was broken as well. Did this more 4 times and the fuses broke, so I thought I would ask for advice on where to start looking for the problem

thanks

Joe

Pump, wiring or blockage in the pump/intake.

Does the fuse pop immediately?

Replace pump "cartridge" part of it or take it apart and look for sand, rock debris ect... Sometimes its debris, most of time cartridge goes bad. I keep spares. (take out cartridge and see if it runs out of housing, if so, clean it up and lube it, if not, needs new pump cartridge) About $35-45 is the going price for one. I lube mine up w 303 inside housing and on the rubber part of cartridge to help not stick but hard water deposits are tough on em.

Take the head off the pump and see if the impellor is stuck. Try to spin it. Mine was stuck and I spun it by hand and it solved the problem.

The fuse does pop immediately. Will take the pump apart this weekend and see if it is blocked. Thanks

I had to upgrade to a bigger fuse on the furthest wired pump from the breaker. It kept popping, ever though all the others were fine. Upgraded to a bigger size, and no problems since.
