    Our company just purchased a BAC Fluid Cooler. Here's the situation: after about 30 minutes of operation the recirculation pump motor gets so hot that it automatically throws the starter switch off. Once the pump motor cools down, it can be started again by resetting the starter switch. The prospect is wondering if they have an electrical or mechanical problem.

    I welcome your comments and/or thoughts.

    Thanks.

    With information provided motor is getting hot because there is a problem. Causing it to trip.

    Read name plate get data. Take amp and voltage readings. go to motor starter and check what it is set for. compair. This would be a start.
