First, separate motor and pump. Remove back cover of motor. Drive shaft of motor either has a slot on end for a large screwdriver or a flat on it for a wrench.(usually 7/16) Hold shaft and unscrew impeller.

SOURCE: I can't remove the impeller on a 4hp Speck

If the shaft seal has been leaking for some time the stem on the impeller has likely spit due to corrosion on the motor shaft. This makes it near impossible to un screw the impeller. You can try and isolate the armature of the motor and use a channel lock on the impeller. The only other way to get it off is by breaking it. Use a flat head screwdriver and a hammer and break apart the area around the center of the impeller until you can pry off the everything but the stem. You'll have to remove the ceramic part of the seal and pick out as much of the stem as you can. Then you can get the wetend off the motor and remove the metal cup seal.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Replace the mechanical seal located behind the impeller along the motor shaft. Half is on the impeller and half is in the seal plate.

I have a Speck Pump, model E71, only a year old. It suddenly stopped working - it was fine at the start of the season. The problem is that it just hums when turned on.


Since it hums it has power. I believe there is a start capacitor on it, that or the start switch may have failed.

My pool pump is making a screeching noise


Chances are you either have something stuck in the impeller (not likely), or your motor bearings are worn out. If the latter is true, you are about to lose the use of your motor.
Depending on your motor, you may be able to have the bearings replaced. Otherwise, you may be looking at a new motor.
When the bearings on mine were going out (mine are non-serviceable), I just continued to run the motor til it completely failed. Then I replaced it.
If you are the "do-it-yourself-er" type, it is much cheaper to order a new motor online and change it out yourself. Takes less than 30 minutes. Be sure to replace the shaft seal when you change out the motor. I replaced my Sta-Rite Duraglas (A.O.Smith) motor and seal for $150.
Hope this helps.

I have a speck 90 series pump with a broken impeller how do i remove the impeller off the shaft


You'll need to remove the back plate off the motor. Take a pair of channel locks and hold onto the bolt that goes through the motor. With your other hand, unscrew the impeller off the shaft.

I have a proline 1.5hp pump need to replace the shaft seal. I can't seem to get the plastic impeller off. We use a screwdriver to hold the shaft screw and try to turn the impeller counter clockwise...


Keep trying - It is stuck and will likely break but you have to remove it to change the seal. It is not uncommon to need to replace the impeller when the seal fails since the water gets behind the impeller shaft and rusts the metal causing the impeller to bind. If you still cannot get it free pull the motor thru-bolts and lock the rotor once removed from the motor in a vice. Use a large pair of channel locks to break the impeller free...replace it if necessary.

Pump is 10 years in continuous operation. Stopped working. Can it be fixed or time for a new pump? 660/341-4801 prnhcc@aol.com


you should be able to replace the motor and shaft seal. You may need a new impeller/diffuser as well. Will still cost less than a new pump, unless you want to upgrade to a more energy efficient pump like the intelliflo.

Speck Pump Model E90 has very little pressure when vaccuming pool


while I can not personally vouch for this company, they do stock speck parts.

http://www.poolpartsonline.com/m-44-speck.aspx

You will most likely need part # 2920741271 - O-RING (strainer tank) It's the o-ring that sits underneath the strainer lid and is most likely cause of your weak vac pressure. Make sure when you replace it, you use a good silicone based lube. It will help the lid seal better and prevent the o-ring from deteriorating faster if you used a petrol based lubricant.
