SOURCE: Flotec Sprinkler Pump not priming

it might be that the pump is prewired at 230 volt and you are running a 115 power supply to it, if motor just humms and little water comes out this might be your fix

Flotec Model FP4012-D8 stopped pumping water. I took pump apart except for small impeller housing edge break I can see no reason for no suction?????


Hi jandh40...

You have an air leak somewhere in your piping, housing of the pump or maybe the mechanical seal and that is causing your pump not to pump.
Try to disconnect the piping and hook a water hose up to the pump and turn the pressure on, it should show you where the air leak is by spraying water out of the leak area.

Our pump is leaking behind the housing around the shaft, cannot figure out how to get the impeller off to fix seal around shaft


impeller screws off to the left. on most motors you can use a 7/16 wrench to hold the rotor still as you unscrew the impeller , go under the thermal limiter switch, its by the ground screw . you will need to wiggle it in to get past the wires .. use back of screwdriver handle to install white portion of seal,. do not touch these shinny parts with you fingers ! or the screw driver ! prime the pump with water after every repair, don't starve the pump for water, if you do watch for the wet spot and replace the shaft seal ASAP ! .. jay your local pool pump motor repair guy in longwood Florida .. home of the pool pump repair puppy, the sign of a bark'n good deal

I have a 1 hp in ground Flotec pool pump. It is not pumping the proper flo. It makes noise when it starts but then clears up. The motor sounds good. How do I get a manual on the parts for the pump...


GOOD LUCK GETTING PARTS FOR THIS.. FRANK , IF WERE MY POOL I WOULD CHANGE THAT PUMP OUT TO A STA-RITE DURA GLASS.. FLOTEC IS A POOR COPY OF THE STA RITE.. OR YOU CAN CHECK THE IMPELLER IF IT IS PLUGGED WITH TRASH OR IT COULD HAVE A BAD CAPACITOR.. BRING IT IN AND HAVE IT CHECKED..

2003 yz impeller seal is leaking, do i need to replaice head gaskets thanks ian


I am not sure what you mean by impeller seal so here are a few scenarios:

**Note: Based on YZ250. others may be similar.

-If the gasket around the impeller housing is leaking you can replace that on its own. Open rad cap, drain the coolant using the lower screw with the copper washer behind it. Then remove the other 3 bolts, remove cover, clean mating surface, install new gasket, snug everything up, and replace the coolant.

You don't need to replace the head gaskets unless your leaking from there, or getting coolant in the engine.

The same would apply to your base gasket.

just in case:

-if your transmission/gear oil is milky, your will have to change the oil seals on the impeller shaft.
