Question about Jacuzzi MAGNUM FORCE POOL PUMP - TWO SPEED 2 HP 115/230V

1 Answer

Do Magnum Force Pumps have a reset switch ?

My pump stopped working yesterday after I heard a single pop sound.
I've had theses pumps for 3 years they were installed with the pool.
I'm wondering if what I heard was some kind of mechanism switching off.So I'm wondering if there is some kind of reset swicth on the pump and if so where is it located.
I don't know if I should just buy a pump or pay someone $100.00 to come look at it and tell me I need a new one.
Can you also help me find the Jacuzzi Bros. manufaturer to help me with the warranty issues ?
Thanks Tenvix

No jacuzzi magnums do not have a reset button. First make sure breaker to pool is off, then remove rear motor cover, and take a look. Popping noise sounds like an arked wire. Could be a bad terminal or just aloose power wire. JACUZZI PUMPS ARE GOOD QUALITY, AND USSUALLY RUN FOR MANY YEARS. Pump can be removed for repaair, or motor replacemant by a qualified, and republe pool shop, for rebuilding Ussually rebuilding is about half the cost of new. Kirk

My Zoeller M57 pump has stopped working. It won't even turn on...is there a reset switch or some other easy fix for this?


These Zoeller pumps are very good quality> I suspect that the float switch is not working, which is why the pump is not turning on.You may try giggling the float arm that is attached to the switch. You can also try spraying some WD 40 into the switch where the arm enters. Zoeller does have replacement parts for their pumps. Review their website for your pump parts.

I have an 11 year old Jacuzzi Magnum Force 1227 pool pump model 15UMFS. I want to replace it, but don't know how many horsepower it is. Can you tell me?


Probably 1.5 HP but if you can read any of the nameplate data on the motor it would be helpful to confirm. A better approach might be to size the new pump to the volume of water in the pool.

If all you are going to replace is the pumps motor then can you provide at least the amp ratings off the motor? Those should help verify what your old unit's horsepower really is.

1hp magnum pump starts and runs but very little flow. then pump shuts down. checked for water supply and any blockage . none found in supply or return pump is about 8 or 10 years old


Sounds like a problem with the impeller, take off the lid, take out the pump basket and reach down and feel past the opening in the bottom, should feel a smooth and clean series of plastic blades, it is possible the blades a chewed up or its loaded up with hair.

Pump was working fine yesterday popped the breaker


Hi Mohn,

Don't know your geographic location, but where I am we've been in the single digit temperatures for three days. Everything that can freeze has frozen.

If you are in a similar area, even though the water in the spa (I'm assuming the spa pump is being used on a spa) is heated, the pump housing isn't. If it iced up, it could very well cause the problems you describe.

Comment back with some more detail before I continue down what might be the wrong path.

Best regards
Mike

Jacuzzi Magnum Force Pump not working


The number one problem is air leaks.......check all connections to see that they are tight, and rubber seals. The intake side would give you trouble with air leaks. If you dont find any leaks then I would pull the pump cover and check the impellor. Pool stores have parts and lots of knowledge.

Magnum Force Jacuzzi Pump stopped working


No serviced by pool technician. But you can look in your breaker box for a popped breaker, it should be 20 amp and be positioned in the middle instead of on or off position. Kirk
