Reverse direction of electric motor

If your motor runs backwards, you wired the motor backwards. Change your wires around and it will run the correct way.

How is the pump seperated from the motor. I am replacing the motor only.

From this question I assume you already have a motor. Anyway, most motors separate from the pumps by first taking apart the pump and removing the impeller. Some impellers have a screw in the middle that have left handed threads. Once this screw is removed the impeller can be unscrewed by holding the motor shaft with a wrench and turning the impeller counter clockwise. To gain access to the motor shaft to hold it there usually is a cover at the end of the motor that comes off. When the impeller is off there are usually bolts that hold the pump to the motor. When reassembling the motor it is important to replace the ceramic seal and gaskets. I hope this helps.

We are having issues getting the impeller apart on the jacuzzi magnum force pool pump and need some instructions on how to proceed.

I believe the jacuzzi pump impeller has a locking screw directly in the middle of the impeller. You'll have to turn it clockwise to remove it. Then you'll need to remove the cover from the back of the motor using a 1/4" nut driver. Depending on the motor, you should be able to use a 7/16" open end wrench to hold the motor shaft from turning as you turn the impeller counter-clockwise to remove it. Some motors are different, some have a keyed shaft or require a special tool to hold the shaft while the impeller is removed. Hope this helps.

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.

How does the impeller come off of the motor shaft

It unscrews. If it has a lock screw in the center that is left handed so it unscrews in a clockwise direction. Then the impeller unscrews in a counter clockwise direction. Usually needing a good sharp rap to get it started. I usually use a screwdriver held sideways in the impeller and I hit it straight down with a cresent wrench.This will usually start it spimming. if that dosen't work you will have hold the back of the motor shaft and break it free by turning it with water pump pliers or the like.

The suction and water flow is greatly reduced

It's possible to wear out the impeller. To remove the impeller: after removing the motor and impeller from the housing, you remove the cover from the electric end. Carefully find a flat on the shaft that usually fits an open end wrench close to where the shaft goes into the motor. Not on the end of the shaft where the spring thing is. Hold the shaft with a wrench while turning the impeller, don't let the wrench break anything. Double check the threads on the new impeller to see if they are left-handed. The impeller should unscrew in the direction of the motor's rotation.
Put in a new seal while you're there.
