Jacuzzi magnum pool pump impeller broke

How do I get the Jacuzzi magnum pool pump apart so I can get to the impeller? The pump runs but no water is pumped to the filter. I ran water through the intake inline (skimmer to pump) and there was no clog. I figure the impeller must be busted.

I want to know how to get to the impeller so I can replace it The pump is not attached with any screws to the filter area.

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.

The actual strainer/pump housing on the Magnums' are usually attached to the motor by a large nut. Under that nut and it should pop right off, then you can proceed to take off the impeller as PartsCenter suggested. Try not to break it off though...Jacuzzi went out of business in 2006 and parts are sparse.

How to change the seals on a jacuzzi magnun force 1 hp pool pump


Hi,
If you haven't already figured out how to change the seals on your Jacuzzi Magnum Force pump, I can help by supplying a diagram.
Here is the parts explosion for that pump.
Start by removing the case/basket assembly, then the diffuser to get to the impeller. Loosen the impeller to get to the seal plate.
When going to the trouble of changing the shaft seals one should change all the hosing seals at the same time because its a lot of work.

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.

Jets wont work i can hear the motor runing but like no water sirculating


I think you have spun the center out of the impeller. Get a replacement impeller at your pull supply place.

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.

Jacuzzi Magnum 1000 - overheating & looking for manual


Loosen the motor and impeller from the pump by backing off the large plastic nut and take that whole section to an electric motor repair shop for inspection. If the motor is salvagable, they can quote the repair or replacement.
