Tip & How-To about Garden
Start with the power and motor. When it's plugged in is there a noise or vibration? Smoke or burning electronic smell? If there is noise or vibration the pump motor is in working order. If it is still not pumping move to the next step.
Now for the impeller, gently turn it. Did it move? Is the turn rough or sticks? With pumps smaller than 1/8hp you can try carefully turning the impeller while powered on to get it spinning. Larger pumps this is not recommended.
Next check the hose fittings and the pumps seals. Are any fittings lose? Run water around the seams while the pump is running, carefully avoiding the motor and any electronics, if the pump starts to prime as you are running the water you have located the bad seal.

If you can walk on your treadmill but you get a burning smell from it, you have a bad problem and discontinue use immediately and unplug the treadmill.
Burning smells are most commonly associated with the following problems:
1) Very high belt/deck friction.
2) Short in the motor.
3) Short in the wiring or electronics.
4) Literally cooking the lacquer or cardboard core (on cheap machines) in the motor from belt friction or a drive system
Friction is the #1 cause of this problem. Many cheaper treadmills have a motor with a cardboard core (people wonder why we are so
down on cheap treadmills) and if the voltage and amperage through the motor heats it up sufficiently, it begins to smolder. If this is the
case, you normally have to replace the belt and the motor and inspect the deck. If the armature has cooked enough in the motor, you
also have to replace the motor.
If the belt and deck check out OK, check for a short in the motor. You can run the motor with an independent power source like a fullycharged
cordless drill battery to see if the symptoms are the same. Click on the following link for our motor test.
If the belt and deck check out and the motor is OK, then check your wiring and electronics for signs of scorching and replace the
If you need additional assistance, please reach me.sincerely. God bless you.
