SOURCE: tub pump

This may be due to clogged jets. Also, if this is a new application....the valves under the spa may not be in the up position to release the water to run into the pump and through to the jets. It may be a top side control issue as well. Check for error codes.

SOURCE: Pump does not pump water

Hi there. Not necessarily. Inside the pump the impellor is plastic. Sometines the fins deteriorate to the point where the pump hums but won't move water. Other times the pump hums but won't actually run. The pump is generally fixable. If you are handy you can remove the pump and take it to any pump repair shop to be reconditioned, usually for about $50-75.

to answer the question "should the pump be replaced as well?)
there are a few things that can answer that question for us. What is the condition of the existing pump? How old is it? Can the impeller even be removed from the shaft without breaking it?

Basically to change the motor bearings you must remove the 10-16 screws on the wet end.
Remove the cap you just unscrewed.
remove the small 1" round shaft cap at the rear of the MOTOR. (on the electrical end) this should come out with just a flathead screwdriver. (if it bends a little its no big deal.)
Lock onto the shaft end we just uncovered with a LARGE flathead screwdriver.
While locked onto the shaft, turn the impeller counterclockwise until removed.
Note: some impellers have a set screw in the center of the impeller.If you have one, it is reverse thread and must be removed by turning clockwise.)

If you are unable to get the impeller off of the shaft, you might as well buy a whole new pump. These pumps are a few hundred dollars, but if you have to purchase a new motor, a new impeller, and a new shaft seal at the very least, then the cost is right up there with a new pump.

If you can remove the impeller, keep reading.
Next remove the (4) - 1/4" hex through bolts located on the motor at the electrical end.
With the impeller removed and the through bolts removed, the wet end should now seperate from the motor.
To remove the bearings, we must seperate the front faceplate from the motor housing by taking a large flathead screwdriver to the small flat notch in between the plate and the motor housing. Pry in small even incriments all the way around the plate to remove this safely.

Once this is done, the bearing can be removed. For this we need a good quality bearing puller (these can be expensive and if you dont own one this is another reason to buy a new pump.)
Lock the 2 arms of the bearing puller around the outside of the bearing, and lock the center pin on the shaft and turn clockwise to remove.

When installing the new bearing, use a piece of 3/4" metal electrical conduit about 6-8 inches inlegth.
Place the bearing on the shaft and fit the electrical conduit on top of it, making sure to only apply pressure to the RACE of the bearing (the inside track) tap lightly until the new bearing is in place.

Once this is done, reverse these instructions to reassemble.

It definitely sounds like your pool filters not set up correctly. Here is a copy of the users manual. Try taking a look at the detailed drawing. It sounds like your valve might not be set up correctly so pay special attention to that area of your filter.

Heating Circulating Water Pump Problems

Changing your circulator pump is not always an easy process.
I will attempt to explain some of the possibilities for changing out a circulator pump. First of all I would recommend that if you are reading this and you do not have an extra circulating pump in the basement beside the boiler. That you stop by your local heating and air conditioning supply house and buy one. For under one hundred dollars it will be cheap insurance.

The very first thing you need to know is the water temperature in the boiler. If the water is hot, 140F or above than the problem is not the boiler. It is heating the water. The next thing will be to see if there is power coming to the circulator pump. Either take the electrical cover off of the circulator pump motor, or check for voltage at the source of the wire going to the circulator pump. If there is no voltage, usually 110 volts for the US, then you have to look at why the motor is not getting power. I will do another article on that issue at another time.

So now we have established that you have power coming to the motor. There is hot water in the boiler however the pipes going to the radiation are cold. The next thing to look for, are zone valves. They are little motorized valves that open and shut to direct the flow of heat to different parts of the house or building. It is possible that one of them could fail and the circulator pump is running and moving no water. Usually the circulator pump will be making a noise and often be very hot if this is the case. Of course then you need to check the zone valve. That, we will also cover later.

The first thing you need to do to change the circulator pump is to make sure that the electricity to the circulator pump motor is turned off. Verify that the power is off before touching the wires. The wires then need to be disconnected at the pump motor. Then the 4 bolts that hold the circulator pump in place need to be removed. Save these bolts, they may be needed to install the new pump. Carefully remove the pump from the flanges. A pry bar or screw driver may be needed to break the pump lose from the old flanges. Be careful of the motor, depending on the type of failure, the motor can be very hot.

If you had a responsible installer do your heating system, then you will have a valve in the piping on either side of the circulator pump. These valves will isolate the circulator pump from the rest of the heating system and changing the circulator pump will be fairly painless. If you do not have valves closed to the pump, then you will need to find the valves that will be the closest to either side of the pump and close them. For some older installs there may not be any valves and you will have to drain most of the water out of the system to change the pump.

This can get very complicated and professional help may be needed. The hardest part may be refilling the system and getting the air purged back out of the piping.

To install the new pump, clean the old gasket material from the flanges and install the new gaskets on the new pump. Carefully insert the new pump with gaskets into the flanges. Be careful not to damage the gaskets. Then install the 4bolts that hold the circulator pump in place. Tighten the bolts just so they are snug and not too tight. If they leak a bit you can always make them a bit tighter to stop the leak. Too tight may damage the gaskets. Hook up the wires to the pump motor again. Open the valves back up and check for leaks. Adjust bolts as needed. Apply power to the system and start the motor to check the operation of the circulator pump.

Your would be correct. Most pumps have a high limit switch that kills the power when the motor gets too hot. As long as you have shut the power off to the motor, wait until it is safe from the storm to go and try it again. They usually cool within 30 minutes. Check the pump basket first before turning it on. If it was running for a long time without water circulating, the heat may have distorted the basket and need to be replaced. If the pump turns on and primes up your off to the races. If not, you may need to replace the seals or the entire pump

Motor hums does not circulate water

Most likely running it dry has locked your pump causing the motor not to be able to turn. Consistant running efforts will eventually burn up your pump motor.You can probably get a new pump at your local pool and spa supply. Sometimes you can get the pump and motor together and save money in the labor.Check ebay.

The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate a problem with the water circulation pump motor. Turn the appliance off for 30 minutes to allow it to cool. Then, restart the cycle. If the error code returns check the wiring to the pump motor. Also, if the wash impeller is broken this error can appear. If the impeller and wire harness check out, and the code keeps returning, you will probably need to replace the pump and motor assembly.

If you can, I would certainly replace the capacitor; you are describing classic bad capacitor symptom. There is no guarantee, though, but the cost is low. Remember, the capacitor holds voltage even when the motor is unplugged!
I would bet that once you get the motor running correctly, your pumping problem will resolve itself.
I don't believe that suddenly two problems occurred at once.

The breaker trips when the power is turned on...what is wired wrong?

the shaft maybe stuck. open the pump lid and remove the pump basket. alot of times debris gets past the basket and jams the empeller which stops the motor shaft from spinning. you can remove the little round cap at the back of the motor. there is usually a grove to place a flat head screw driver in and try to spin shaft. or you can use a 1./2 in open end wrench it if the shaft is not completely round it will have two flat areas where the wrench will grip and then you can spin the shaft manually the point is the shaft should spin fairly easily without alot of force. if it does not you mayb have to seperate the motor from the pump and make sure ther is no debris or some thing stuck in the pump area. but before you go thru all that work use a pressure hose and or long screwdriver to get in thru the opening hole behind where the pump basket sits. that is usually where the blockage is from not gettign all the stuff out of the cavity under the pump basket. the point is you need the shaft to spin freely or the motor will over heat and trip the internal swithch or breaker ther other issue may be there is water leaking into the electrical area causing the tripping and or over time a wire may have worn out and exposed the metal to touch other metal which is arching the electric and breaking the tripper
