Pump just stopped working one day. It was working fine the day before. Hums when submerged but does not pump.

I have a Sunterra pond pump 1250gph and it was working fine one day and the next it just stopped. When you submerge it, it hums but does not pump water.

Check the impeller inside the is probably broken as this has been a continual problem for me with sunterra. the first 2000 gl pump lasted one year and did this and my warranty replacement pump is only 2 1/2 months old and did the same thing in such a short time with a very clean clear pond. They have a 2 yr. warranty so replacment has not been a problem but my pond gets dirty without filtration while waiting shipment as well as loosing the mature bacteria in my bio-filter and having to "start over:" every time !

It sounds like your filter is plugged, Take the filter cover off and rinse out your filter, it should take care of the problem. I clean my filter out every 2-3 days.

Ornamental fountain won't circulate water, pump perfect, please help

It is presumably a submerged pump. Cleaning the pond could have accidentally blocked the pump inlet or damaged or dislodged the supply pipe.
Time to wade in and take a look...

If you find a replacement 2000 Impeller for your 2008 sunterra pump, let me know! I called the company who promptly told me they don't sell component parts for any of their pumps larger than 1250. They very matter-of-factly told me to go buy a new pump.

Sunterra 300106 pond biofilter 1000 gallon intakeoutake nozzles have broken. Where in the twin cities can I go to buy new ones?

You can contact Sunterra LLC directly from their website or you can call (309)690-2460 (Ill #) or (800)800-0993 (Cal #) and they will ship you the needed parts right away. Walmart was carrying Sunterra a few years ago and may still carry ...check with them. I also noticed Target on-line had Sunterra. But as far as replacmeent parts, I would call Sunterra directly. Also carries a lot of Sunterra supplies !

Pump goes on and off

Does the pump have thermall protection? It sounds like its getting hot and tripping the thermal protection switch in the pump windings.
