Question about Little Giant Pes-120 120 Gph Statuary Fountain Pump

Open Question

My little giant fountain pump cat. 566606 model pes 120 is not pumping strong enough to send the water to the top of the fountain for it to trickle down the front refilling itself. Is there a way to get a replacement pump? I've cleaned away the debris and it seems to be working fine, just a bit too weak. I've had it for about 5 years. Thanks! Steve

SOURCE: I want to replace an impeller for a Little Giant submersible pump

This is a plastic impeller on a brass hub. If the impeller is loose it is probally cracked or overheated and melted, ether way you will have to break the impeller off of the hub then you will need to break hub loose from shaft. You can do this by putting pump in a vise and putting a pair of vice grips on hub and giveing them a sharp hit in a counter clockwise direction. you will need to replace the seal and impeller and should check to be sure than you can get these parts before you start.

Sounds like you may have a 220V pump. So you need to confirm that this is a 110V pump and not a 220V pump. There should be a label or more info on line with any other info on the label. If you can confirm that this is a 110V pump, then put a standard plug on the cord - the green is ground and the other two can be wired to either blade of the plug. If you do have a 220V pump and you connect it to 110V anyway, the pump will perform poorly and will probably overheat and fail.

You might have 2 problems. The GFIC might be wired wrong or the pump wirng might be compromised with moisture. The noise issue? Are you running this unit without submersing it? They will burn out if you do. To get a more accurate running sound, submerse it with a flexible pipe so you can run it in a 5 gal bucket without losing the water.
It's possible a bearing is burned out.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Replace the check valve that is part if the discharge hose barb. When it fails the water trapped in the vertical section of the tube comes back into the tank and cycles the float on again causing what you describe. The best way to confirm this would be to watch the water level as soon as the pump shuts off and see if it climbs without any other source of water coming into it. If it is not rising then the issue is with the float itself and is not worth fixing; replace the unit in that case.

How to disassemble Little giant pump model#psm006?


thats why i like the little giant pumps they are put together with phillips screws not glued like them other guys , i do suggest that if you dissasemble pump and water has gotten inside , replace it not just seal it up and go , wont last long as that means the pump shaft seal has leaked , ther e has been a few folks that add dietary mineral oil to the inside , for use in very deep ponds (over 3 feet) they believe that helps keep the water out

My pump is running but not sucking up water


well if possible look into suction screen and see if Impeler is turning , I'll bet not , most of the lil giants come with a easy to remove pump cover (screw) so one can access the pump cavity to remove forign debris , also one can manually rotate impeller with finger (unplugged) to ck for free movement , if its hard to move your pump needs replacement

I had brought a wall fountain 11 years ago and my husband just put it up today and the pump doesn't work, it won't spin


The pump has sat too long and lost its lubrication. You might see if you can reach the impellors with something to push them and see if they move. Otherwise you need a new pump

How do I take apart model PES-80-PW


nothing to take apart on this one it's a mag drive pump , if somehow the housing requires cleaning , backflushing down the outlet pipe is about the only way to do it , unit is sealed otherwise

mag drive means that a magnet is used to couple pump to motor so a direct connection is not needed so no drive shaft seals to fail , mag drives should never never be run dry with low to no water in pond , they use the water for cooling and will fail beyond repair if allowed to melt
