Onga pool pump running but not drawing water from pool

Pump running but not sucking the water up to the filter My pump will not cteate suckion. I have changed out all the fitting to the pump to ensure no leaks. I have changed the defuser on the pump. I also changed the manifoleds and the grids inside the filter because some of the ribs were broken on the filters them self. The pump is running and the impeller is turning but it will not **** the water into the basket from the pool into the filter. Is there any suggestions.

Hi it would most likley be the power cord is on backwards if you reverse the power if will spin the impeller the other way and it should push the water up to filter. Thank you for your post

It could be the capacitor is bad. The capacitor stores up a charge of electricity which it discharges to start the motor without it the motor cannot start against a load. If the capacitor is good the internal switch may be sticky or faulty.It is located under the back cover of the motor. It is a centrifugal switch that starts the motor on the capacitor and start windings and as the motor spins up to speed switches to the run windings. Check to see that it operates smoothly. Hope this helps.

Pump is running but not returning water to pool


If you have suction, you must have discharge. It is a law. Your water is going somewhere. Check for your water going to waste. Are you CERTAIN you have suction ? When I first read your question, I suspected a impeller with a spun out center. The motor runs but there is no pressure and no flow.

Let me know ...

I cannot start pumping. the pump runs but no water is circulating


I think you have spun the center out of your impeller. Disassemble your pump and replace the impeller if necessary. Also replace all seals while you are at it.

We do not know where the air filter valves are


Air filter?

Remove the strainer basket cover ... fill with water ... check the gasket ... replace if questionable ... close the cover and SNUG the top down. Start the pump ... it should run just fine.

If you are sucking air, tighten the strainer basket cover a little.

Still sucking air? You will have to find the air leak. You might plug the leak with plumbers putty.

Your Onga Pool pump was running dry causing the
impeller to melt down and stick to the pump case.
You have to remove the impeller, and the only way
to take it off by using the heat gun to melt the stucked plastic impeller. Or by forcing it off slowly, cutting the impeller using hacksaw, taking care of the mechanical seal and the motor shaft not to bend it. Afterwhich you can replace the impeller, and assemble the Onga pump/motor. Then, you can
install the Onga pump back to its location. Just
send you e-mail for further assistance. God bless
you.

How to set up my onga pump and filter its about 8 years old but looks like the currant model.just got it and they didnt have instructions bugger.


We begin at the suction line. I'll assume that you will be using this as a
pool pump since you have a filter. At the suction line, install a horizontal
or a vertical check valve along the suction pipe. Then the suction pipe
is connected to the bottom pipe adapter of the filter. The top pipe adapter of the filter shall be connected to the pump suction adapter. At the pump discharge adapter, install a GI Pipe Tee. At the bottom of the GI pipe tee, put a GI nipple going to the pump discharge adapter. Opposite it shall be the pipe plug to serve as the priming port. At the GI pipe cross, install a GI nipple about 6-inch long with a service **** to balance water flow. At the end of the service **** install another 6-inch GI nipple to attach a gate valve to control water flow. After the gate valve
is the discharge pipelines going back to the pool.

Note: Pump must be installed within 3 to 5 meters near the water source. You may install more than 5 meters but suction could be difficult for the pump.

Priming the pump:

Open the plug at the tee that serves as the priming port, Fill this up with
water to full level with the service **** at full close position. Once filled
up, replace and close the priming port. Put the power on, and start the
pump running, then slowly open the service **** or flow control valve
to appropriate level.

Just send your e-mail for further assistance. Thanks.

Onga pool pump running but not drawing water from pool


Take out the pump pot basket and stick your finger in the hole towards the motor (make sure the motor won't kick on!!). What you should feel is the impeller. It has five grooves in the face of it and each one needs to be cleaned of foilage and debris. With every hole clogged in the impeller you lose 20% of your motors effeciency. With whisperflow brand the pump pot basket is poorly designed where debris like pine needles go straight through.
