To remove the wet end off the motor of a bath pump:

  1. Remove the screws or bolts from the face plate
  2. Unthread the impeller off the shaft of the motor counter clockwise
  3. Remove the 4 bolts that go all the way through the motor into the wet end.
To install the new wet end reverse that process.

Motor hums but does not turn freely, can you turn the motor by removing the motor end cap?

no! You have to remove the pump end to find the shift, You may look between the pump and motor and find the shift splice and set screws that need to be tighted up.

I had a hayward 11/2 hp 2 sp...I put a AO 2 hp 1 sp on my ing. pool and how it just hums and shuts off. I checked everything out and primed it before I tried to start the pump. Can anyone help

Turn off the power and remove the end cap at the center back end of the motor. The end of the motor shaft is then exposed and you can use a 9/16" open end wrench to verify that the motor shaft is turning freely.
If it offers resistance the pump needs to be opened and checked to find out why. If it does move freely, take it to a pool store or motor shop to test it. Rarely, a motor gets out of the factory DOA.

My dental compressor stopped working. What can I do?

Does it make any noise at all? If not, check the motor for a protective device. A thermal reset would be a red button on the end of the motor. It may be as simple as that.

If it hums loudly, and turns over by hand- no power applied- with difficulty the motor bearings or compressor bearings may be needing attention.

If it hums loudly and barely turns, but turns by hand freely, the motor has a start/run capacitor- it likely failed. Replacing the capacitor is a simple task- just make sure to replace it with one of similar ratings.

I have the 7-184948-22 1 hp Got home to day (very hot ) motor was triped off. Reset and now it just hums, locked up. Any hope? It's about 3 years old

Turn off the power at the breaker, then reach in to the impeller and see if it will turn freely. If it does you probably only need to replace the capacitor. If it will not turn freely you'll have to remove the motor end by unscrewing the large ring that holds the motor to the wet end. Remove the small screws that hold the diffuser cover and inspect the impeller and impeller ring, sometimes known as an impeller weir or floating eye seal.
Even if you have to replace the motor this pump is worth saving if there is no damage to other components. Note: Replacement motors are easy to find, I favor Magnatek / A. O. Smith motors but any brand such as Emerson or other will do. Jacuzzi parts though are getting increasingly hard to come about.

We have a MMDE9206AYM model dryer that makes a low humming sound but will not start. Last night it also produced a burning smell. I assume either the belt is gone or the motor is overheating although it...

Sounds like drum is locked and motor is running and burned the belt. Try to spin drum by hand, Might check drum ends felt seals, Teflon bearing strips located on the bottom lip of front drum end for wear causing drag. Also check 2 drum support wheels to see if they spin freely, take the belt off motor pulley and spin drum by hand, if easier & motor runs drum is dragging. How is the spring on tensioner, does tensioner pulley spin free? Hope this helps locate the problem.

The disposal only hums. I can turn the blades inside so there is no food stuck. I know there is a reset button but cant locate it.

I had the same problem, it was just humming, then after a few second the on board circuit breaker would cut out. After a little while I could hit the reset button and it would just hum again.

It turns out that the base of the disposal was jammed. There are 2 blades on the top that should spin freely, but the base plate that the blades are attached to also spins. In fact, that's what the motor drives. The two blades on top are not powered, they just flip back and forth as the base spins. So get a broom handle or a strong wooden spoon, stick it down in there, and try to pry the base plate free so it spins. That should do it.

My sump pump hums, but the propeller doesn't turn.

yes the pipe is the same size all the way through, if it is just humming and there is nothing blocking it, the motor could be going bad and doesn't have the power to turn the pump,, did you check to see if the shaft could be bent> like as if a rock may have gotten stuck but broke loose before you took it apart

Could be something jamming the fan blade but if the motor shaft turns freely then your motor is bad.

My dishwasher won't actually turn on this morning. When I push the start button, it hums, and the lights by the cycles flash, for about two minutes, but it won't actually run through a cycle.

Your motor is probably stuck.
Remove power from the D/W.
Remove the lower access panel. The motor will be in front of you.
Turn the blades in the end of the motor counterclockwise until the motor turns freely. You will need a flat screwdriver to reach in and turn the blades.
When it frees, repower and try it again.
