No hot water from bell & gossett autocirc hot water pump. what is the cause

the pump itself doesn't make any hot water it merely circulates it around your house to the sink outlets , this pump has a unique feature as it auto senses the temp of water and starts itself when it dips low , if you don't get any hot water even if you wait 4 it a moment then id have a service tech ck your water heating equipment , as it seems its not working

Bell & gossett series 100 squeaks when it stops

Sounds like it is not getting oil. The bearing oil fill cover can be removed by lifting outer plate with a screwdriver. Ck that the wicks are covered with oil , if not oil them. Put 3 drops in motor oil fill tubes. If still squealing, replace.

What would cause a circulator failure?

I am going to assume the circulator pump is on a hot water circulation loop. Turning the water back on could have stirred up the sediment that has collected in the bottom of the water heater. This could clog up and possibly ruin the impeller. Running for an extended period without circulating water can overheat and damage the pump also. It is a good idea to hook a hose to the water heater drain and flush out the sediment periodically. Hope this helps.

Boiler is hot but circular pump is cold

It sounds like the pump is not operating properly. I would guess convection is causing some of the rooms to heat or you have another pump. Check if you have power at the pump, if so it is bad. If not then check the thermostat and relay, one of those probably failed.

Water not draining from machine . cleaned out pump but still not working.

Believing the pump to be operational, there is a possibility that the impeller within the pumb is broken or loose on the shaft. Eventho the pump motor is running the water is not being "moved" through the pump because of the bad impellers.

How do you pressurize a hot water boiler?

If the pumps run, but do not circulate water

make certain that all the air is out of the system

bleed air from coin vents and open caps on auto vents

If there are not sufficent means of air elimination, there are some other options, such as using an auxillary pump to force the air out

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.
