    I have exactly the same problem and was wondering the same thing about the capacitor. Do you know if the capacitor is to start the pump or is it just for interferance?

This can be one of three issues.
1.  Starting capacitor as you have suggested.  You can take the capacitor to a motor shop and have it tested or test it yourself if you have a meter that will check capacitance. 2.  Low/High voltage.  If the voltage is not at the proper levels (10% up or down) then the unit may have a hard time starting. 3.  Something might be binding up the impeller.  Disconnect the power and carefully check to see if the shaft of the motor spins freely. 4.  A short in the windings.  If none of these seem to be the problem, then you will probably need to replace the motor.

My Calypso washer at the start I hear water filling tub. Then it stops filling and hear a moderate humming noise. I replaced water pump but still doing the same. Please help. Thanks


The problem is not the pump. IT appears that the water control valve is bad or the voltage that controls it is changing and then the valve stops working.

I have an aqua flow master 3.8 hp xp2 pump in my hot tub, it sounds like it is receiving power as it is clicking on but it will not start. have i fried the motor? the shaft turns ok but nothing is...


Many of these pump motors have a capacitor and start & run windings. I had a pump motor a week ago that was free to rotate, but only hummed. I looked inside the back end, everything looked good, I bought a capacitor online for $7 + $15 shipping, installed it and it worked. The capacitor will have voltage & rating on the side.
BE CAREFUL, CAPACITORS KEEP VOLTAGE EVEN WHEN NOT PLUGGED IN. If you don't know how to handle them, take the motor to a local motor repair shop.

I have a CSC compacitor 50UF /- 6% 370VAC 50/60HZ, thinks it bad, my hot tub motor just hums but will turn free by hand


The capacitor on top of the motor is the run capacitor. The reason the motor is just humming is more likely the start sw located behind the end bell housing. There is a spring loaded clutch mechanism that may be stuck so the switch is not being activated. A simple fix at any motor shop.

My pump won't run it just makes a humming noise and gets hot. the impeller spins freely by hand.


If the pump is fairly new it could be the starting capacitor,

But if the pump get really hot quick its the motor who is damage and need to be rebuild or replace,

how old is your pump and wich model do you have?

I have a St. Maarten tub and the #1 pump does will


the problem with the pump #1 sounds like a capacitor, unless the bearings have seized, it's the start/run capacitor or possibly the inner switch but that is not as common. Humming and then turning off is textbook sign of a bad capacitor or seized bearings, if the pump has not been running loud or whining, it definitely the cap.

Sounds like the motor is stuck. If your careful you can unplug the dishwasher or turn the breaker off, take the bottom panel off and reach in with your finger and spin the motor assembly.

Pump makes clicking noise when powered up ?


Clicking?... not knowing which clicking noise you are hearing, I will run down the most likely on a new pump.
1. When wiring the motor you may have left a wire in close proximity to the centrifical start capacitor switch. It spins at high RPMs and can be hitting a wire not properly tucked in
2. Most pool pumps are dual voltage. If you wired motor for wrong voltage than that being delivered, the motors can sometimes make noises. Clicking isn't most common, but the vibrating hum of incorrect voltage might be interpreted as a clicking noise.
3.check to make sure no wire ties, or plastic stringy tag holding devices were left in the pump intake basket.
