SOURCE: Jacuzzi magnum pool pump impeller broke

The impeller on the Magnum pump unthreads counter clockwise as do other impellers. There is a shaft of the motor that runs the length of the motor, on the back of the motor when you take the bell housing off you will see a small silver spot with a **** in it for a standard screwdriver. Put the biggest one in there you can and then grab the impeller and turn it counter clock wise and it should unthread. Sometimes they won't if it has been on there a number of years. You will need to break it off if it doesn't unthread. Then just purchase a new Impeller for the Jacuzzi Magnum Pump.

Replace the pumps mechanical seal with a replacement seal #200. It's less than $10.

SOURCE: Need Intex Pump model #635 impeller

You know, I have made some amazing repairs on plastic items using nothing more than a soldiering iron! If you have the piece that broke off, you can carefully melt it back together. You can add more to the weld if you match the type of plastic but not too much or you imbalance it. In this case it looks like PVC. To repair it without the missing piece, form it out of epoxy putty, roughly shape it just before it sets up solid, & sand to finish.

SOURCE: Impeller tightens on Aqua-Flo Series A brass pool pump

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

There is no spacer. The impeller's internal nut and the shaft's shoulder set the spacing. The most likely problem is either the spring portion of the seal is not fully seated into the pump housing or the ceramic portion not fully seated into the impeller. You should also be sure you removed ALL of the old seal and parts. Many people leave the ceramic's boot in place and then the new seal seat will not seal properly.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the prompt response. You solved my problem! The spring seal was not seated all the way but it was not obvious to me - maybe a 64th of an inch made the difference."

SOURCE: Seal Replacement on Flo-Master 1 hp 2 speed pump

Pump seal is in two pieces. The piece with the spring should be easy to remove. To remove the piece that is inside the motor side of the pump housing, place the housing with the side that should be facing the motor downdwards on a flat surface. The hole in the housing is larger than the seal, so use a screwdriver and, placing first on one side of the seal and then the other, strive the handle of the screwdriver sharply and the seal should pop out the bottom. The seal is rubber, with a ceramic insert, so if you don't tap the screwdriver too sharply the insert won't be damaged. In any case, it's a good idea to replace the entire seal if you have had to open the pump and remove the impeller

What does mean FLO message on the digital panel


Hi Simon,

The FLO message is a warning that your water flow is not what it needs to be. This can be harmful to your equipment, without proper water flow the heating element can over heat or your pump can run dry causing damage. Often this is can be caused by dirty filters, so your first check should be to see if your filters are clean. Other possible problems could be water levels. Make sure you have no water blockages especially on the suction end.

Pump runs but humms


Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is humming and has low flow?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool/Spa Pump Humming and No Flow If your Swimming Pool or Spa Pump Motor is humming and/or has very little or no water flow, please follow the following directions.
1) Remove the pump motor from the system.
2) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half.
3) Check for any foreign obstructions which would jam the Impeller and remove it
4) Next, inspect the Pump Motor Impeller itself. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged and requires replacement.
5) Next, remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged and need replacement.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts.

We have an older model Hayward Power Pro LX pump. The pump is running but no water is pumping through. Can't find a tech drawing.


well of course you need to make sure the filters are not blocked up, Skimmer basket etc......I have seen on few occasions the impeller shaft has broken, so the pump runs like it doesn't have a trouble in the world.....but the impeller isn't turning, therefore no water flow.

Removal of Aqua-Flo pump from motor


You will need to pull the front of the pump off then unscrew the impeller. The impeller will be set on the shaft and will take some force to break free. Hold ing the back of the shaft and using water pump pliers on the face of the impeller will usually work but sometimes I will wedge a screwdriver in the fin of the impeller and hit it sharply (not hard) with a hammer to break it free. Then the housing will just pull free of the motor. When replaceing, the impeller just goes on hand tight. Hope this helps and good luck.

How to get impeller off of shaft if it's not unscrewing


At the rear of the motor shaft it will be squared off. if you can get a wrench on this and then use a impeller wrench or water pump pliers you can probally break it free. You need to check in the center of the impeller for a set screw. (not on all model pumps) This will be aleft handed screw so to remove it you will have to turn it clockwise. If need be you can put a screwdriver in a fin of the impeller and give it a sharp hit with a hammer to break it free. Once your done and reassembling the pump be sure to only hand tighten the impeller. Good luck.

How do I get to the pump seal on my hi-flo water


The impeller threads off the shaft and most likely is right hand threads. You will have to lock or hold the motor to remove the impeller. If you remove the motor cover you might find that the motor has a slot in the end of the shaft or two flat sides so you can hold it with a flat wrench.

The impeller is probably plastic and could break. Get a strap wrench to remove the impellor.

Pump seals


The impeller is threaded on to the shaft. The trick is to hold the shaft in order to untread the impeller. The surest method is to disassemble the back of the motor, exposing the opposite end of the shaft. There should be a spot to put a wrench in order to hold the shaft immobile. Then, it's simply a matter of unthreading the shaft. A strap wrench does a great job of holding the impeller without damaging it.
