VANCS Tsurumi PN Pump 50PN2.4s

My pump makes so much noise that I can hear it 20 feet away. It sounds more like a a swimming pool pump that sits outside the water than a submersible pump. I don't know it that is normal, if it's a bearing can it be replaced or am I better off not messing with it?

No, the pump should not be noisy. It sounds like you have picked up a foreign object in the pump housing. you may have to pull the face off to determine. OR the pump/motor is indeed defective and should be returned.

you don't say the volume of the pool, but if the 1.5 was working before and you are not adding too many turns, it will work.

SOURCE: I lost water pressure in my swimming pool line and

If your pump is blocked in any way (usually a closed valve), then the pump cannot keep water flowing. It could be starved of water if blocked on the suction side, or an air leak. On the return side, it's usually a ``dead head`` pipe, or a closed outlet valve. In either case, the pump can overheat and actually boil the water within it. In that case, the fittings attached to it can deform and cause bigger air leaks, which compounds the problem. If you replace the fittings, reconnect the pipe and remove any blockages, you should be fine.

Which way does the pump suppose to whine?


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


A pump can whine for several reasons. Some noise is normal with a pump but when it is very noisy it is indicating a potential problem. If the seal is damaged it may whine and then it usually starts to leak(sometimes a seal leak allows water to get into the bearing at the pump end and reduce its lifespan). If the bearings are damages they will make excessive noise before doing other bad things. These are the most common noises indicating a problem.

If I hear one of these whines I usually make a mental note and let the customer know there is a potential issue. I give them the option of letting it go until it either starts to leak or worse or fixing it right away. Sometimes it operates normally for quite a while while other times it fails very soon. I hope this helps.

Pump makes clicking noise when powered up ?


Clicking?... not knowing which clicking noise you are hearing, I will run down the most likely on a new pump.
1. When wiring the motor you may have left a wire in close proximity to the centrifical start capacitor switch. It spins at high RPMs and can be hitting a wire not properly tucked in
2. Most pool pumps are dual voltage. If you wired motor for wrong voltage than that being delivered, the motors can sometimes make noises. Clicking isn't most common, but the vibrating hum of incorrect voltage might be interpreted as a clicking noise.
3.check to make sure no wire ties, or plastic stringy tag holding devices were left in the pump intake basket.

Pond pump trips safety switch


Check first if there's continuity between the electrical lines and body of the motor. if there is, then you have a line to ground fault in your motor. If there's none, check the resistance between the phase windings. If you get an infinity value, then the motor windings is shorted. If you get an acceptable resistance value, try to rotate the pump with your hand. If there's a considerable resistance, you might have a defective motor or pump bearings.

Pump makes loud humming sound, does not pump, eventually overheats and trips breaker. Tsurumi Vancs 50pn2.4s-61


Pull out the oil inspection plug and check oil. It is filled with mineral oil and should appear clear. If milky it would indicate faulty seals. The tsurumis are overheating often in skimmer box applications where the top of the pump is not submersed when the skimmer intake screen gets plugged. Tsurumi no longer accepts pumps for repair at their US facility. If you contact them they may refer you to a recommended rebuilder. It is a shame as we have sold hundreds of these the last 4 years and have suddenly had a rash of this similiar complaint in the last few months with little success in repairing. We have since dropped this line and replaced with Atlantic water Garden Pumps in similiar sizes.
