Question about Intex Pool & Spa
The pump is leaking water out of the top of the pump with the filter in it. Should there be an O-ring in the top?

Sounds like air has gotten into the pump and froze the pump. It will need to be replaced due to that reason. You can get a repair kit for the pump but it will not be gaurenteed to work

It could be the o-ring on this model. There is a seal on these pool filters that looks like a rubber ring inside the lid. You might need to replace this ring if your pump is leaking here.

Somewhere in your connections you have an air leak on the suction side. That is the sole reason that you have air bubbles in the strainer. If you have a leak on the suction side the only way you will see it is by adding water to the strainer basket and then checking for wet spots on the suction line. There can be a break a long way from the pump in the ground that you can not see.
Another way of troubleshooting is to remove the pump output line and install a cap with an air valve stem then block the suction line with an expandable plug. Then add regluated air at 10 PSI or less to the air valve and listen for a hiss in the line or the sound of water gurgle / bubble underground. I hate to say add any kind of dye (food coloring) but by doing so the leak would be visble. Problem with doing that is it would get introduced into your water once repairs were complete unless you have a way of bypassing the output overboard. If you can overboard the food coloring by all means add it to the filter basket with a full load of water. You will find the leak.
I suspect you have a leak near your recent pump replacement. However...... this thought comes to mind. Did the old pump fail from losing prime? If it did... you must find the leak in the suction line.
Your on the right track with noting the bubbles in the strainer box. You have little choice but to locate the source of the suction leak. You will not see a leak during pump operation because it would be drawing air and water under a vacuum. The only way to find the leak is to pressurize the line as I stated above. Cap the output line, install a way to use compressed air and then add air at low pressure listening for the leak. The drain / suction source must also be blocked with an expandable plug!

Here's the diagram for the 635T.. The o-ring for the top valve should be part number 10264- #3...small o-ring. The housing cover is the bigger o-ring 10325 #5.. Hope this helps you...
