Hi, I've had my spa ALMOST 5 years and I have

Hi, I've had my spa ALMOST 5 years and I have started noticing these little ball bearings INSIDE THE SPA. I can't remember how long the warranty is, I'm thinking 5 years ( I hope ). Anyway one motor has a ON AND OFF buttton while the other motor has a OFF, LOW AND HIGH button. The motor with the low side seldom if ever turns off. Thanks Robert Glasscock. (318) 470-9759

The balls are out of the spinning jets, expensive if you need 20 or 20, can replace with fixed ones at low cost

SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off

The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

SOURCE: Spa Motor Hums

if it is a used pump, these have a tendency to have a little rust. just get some pump pliers and rock the shaft gently back and forth. then plug it back in.

SOURCE: Pump will not work in high speed

Clean the relay contacts on the board. Cut the power, ofcourse. Also, try switching the hot wire on the low side of the pump to the high side to rule out the pump.

What are the side effects over years of use

Ball Bearing needs to change.there is inside the pump a mechanic seal that with the time, leaks water and rust the ball bearing balls and making rusted the shaft .
The pump at this time gets Humming when works.
Pump humming or making noise is not a good working pump.
must be quiet without noise

My 2008 Mazda5 is twisting from side to side when I accelerate, then let off the gas a bit.

Pulling hard seems to me that a bearing may be freezing up/going bad or a brake is not consistently releasing. Is this more noticeable as you break or is there any grinding?

Intex Automatic Salt Water System For Above Ground Saltwater Pool won't turn on

Usualy if it is some years the ball bearing on the motor shaft are rusty and if you can desasemble and use a UD40 lubricant or similar it can be fixed, or replace the bearing. One more posible case is the starting capacitor if it replaced can run the motor again.

Maytag washer circa 1990, model LA3910. Cold water

It is possible that the cold water feed hose has started to deteriorate, this can cause restriction inside the hose. The only other things which can cause a weak feed are low pressure at the tap, which you would notice at your other cold taps as well, or a faulty solenoid valve, which you've already replaced. I'd suggest replacing the hoses and seeing if that makes a difference. (Maytag also recommends replacing the hoses every 5 years). I hope this helps.J Knol

This is sounding like a relay not working on the circuit board inside the control box. You will want to have a Kohler service center send someone out to have it checked. You most likely need a new control box.

The bearings are starting to get noisey and i suspect need replacing. are the bearings in the motor itself or in the pump portion. how do you dis asseble the motor from the pump and then change the...

The bearings are in the motor itself. You can separate the motor from the wet end by removing the wet end. You can then remove the cap or cover on the back of the motor to expose the shaft. It may be a hex tool, a slotted tool, or 7/16 wrench that you'll need to hold the shaft while you spin off the impeller (you may need an impeller tool as well).

Once the impeller is off, you can remove the seal plate and the motor will be isolated. You can then remove the through bolts and proceed to replacing the bearings. You will most likely need to replace the shaft seal as well.

There are many tricks associated with doing this invasive of repair. I cannot cover every scenario you might encounter. Personally, when the bearings go bad, I usually replace the motor as it's usually a number of years old and all of the components will start to go bad including the windings. These motors run at high temperature and unless you've encountered a bad shaft seal that allowed water into the bearings, it may be worth replacing the entire motor. Just my thoughts. Hope it helps a little.
