Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

My self priming pool pump all of a sudden stopped pumping. It is set to run everyday and one morning it was making a humming sound but wouldn't start. This has happened in the past before so I thought it lost the prime. I filled with water and it worked. But this time I cant get it to work. It starts to hum and then it shuts off. Could the impeller be stuck?

I have a Speck Pump, model E71, only a year old. It suddenly stopped working - it was fine at the start of the season. The problem is that it just hums when turned on.


Since it hums it has power. I believe there is a start capacitor on it, that or the start switch may have failed.

Pool water will not circulate even though pump is running


if the water doesnt circulate, there could be many causes. start at the very beginning. does the pump sound 'normal'? if there is rattling or buzzing, the pump might not be turning and there fore no circulation. is there water in the system? even though most pumps are 'self priming', you should fill the hopper with water to prime it. are the lines open? make sure the supply to pump from skimmer is free of blockage and that the return lines to pool are open and free from blockage. if all this looks fine, then you have to get deeper into diagnosis.

When I turn on my STA-RITE 1.5 HP pump, it makes a humming sound.


A humming noise is fairly normal if the pump is running and pumping correctly. I am guessing this is not the case. Usually it is just a stuck impeller that is the culprit. Power down the unit and open the pump housing to access the impeller. Then gently turn the impeller feeling for resistance (some resistance is normal from the magnets of the motor). If everything seems ok close and secure the pump housing. Try powering the unit on and see if it starts up correctly. If it is still having issues manually prime the pump. If the pump runs correctly for a few minutes after manually priming but slows or stops you have a leaky seal or fitting to find. Finding the seal is not hard but will take a little time and patience. With your garden hose, very carefully run water over each joint and fitting with the pump running. It will take a minute or so of water running over a leaky seal for the pump to prime so take your time. Make sure not to get water on the motor as it can deliver a very nasty shock and destroy the motor. If none of this gets you up and running the cause may be the motor is bad and needs replacing.

My pool pump won't prime


If the pump is above the pool water level the it is unlikly that the tank will fill completely with valves open (which is ok).Most pumps are self priming and will pick up a prime with water level below suction inlet on strainer. Try starting on main drain again and slowly open skimmer line. Did you remove water from skimmer line and winterize(if in cold weather climate)during closing?.I know this sounds stupid, but make sure water level in pool is well into skimmer. If air situation remains after scspriggs' and these thoughts then prepare for a pressure test on skimmer line to determine location of leakage.
