Pump won't shut off

We have a 1/3 HP jacuzzi pump model # 3C HPS 1 which we are trying to use for a regular water pump to feed a household plumbing system. The pump turns on, only builds up to 32 lbs pressure but then keeps running, won't shut off. Any advise? Joy for Alan

Can you describe the pump you have? Is it used for household water or a sprinkler system? Typically a household pump will have a storage tank and a pressure switch. 90% of the problems with a pump not turning off is due to the pressure switch.

I have a jacuzzi amiga N890 that when you turn the unit on it just hmmms. It is getting power but does nothing else accept hmmm.

If you turn the Jacuzzi pump on and it just hums and no water flows through the jets then you have a bad pump.
You will need to get the brand name of the pump and the model number before you can begin your search to find the proper replacement.
Bath Pumps each have their own size. You will want to find the exact brand so you do not have to change any of the plumbing.

Jacuzzi hot tub pump. Put new pump and motor in water wont circulate but can here pump running.

Check your suction plumbing to be sure it is sealed and tight. Then force some water through the pipe to see if anything is blocking it.

I've got no water coming thru the side jets in my pool, even though water is pouring through the jacuzzi jets. The jacuzzi is all part of the pool.

This is an ether or situation. Most systems now are set up with three way valves and if you turn the jets on you will shut the pool returns down. If you turn the pool back on you will shut the spa jets off.

Most likely the impeller is clogged, or there is a blockage on suction side of pump/plumbing. Is the basket clean? You may also have an air leak. If the pipe coming into the pump, or the pump lid not sealed, or if a leak at a union, or valve coming into the pump is allowing air in, then the pump may not prime or move much water

I have a jacuzzi 1/2 hp submersible well pump. Does this need any regular maintainance to keep it happy.

No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.

I have a Jacuzzi Jet Pump Model 7C-S/B. Not Working

Check the breaker that supplies power to the unit. If it is in tripped position, check if the motor is grounded ( continuity between terminals and motor body), check for shorted windings (infinity resistance value between the winding phases), and finally check if the pump is stuck up due to debris or defective motor or pump bearings.
