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.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacment impeller for a 2008 model Sunterra 2000 gph pump ? The cover comes off and looks replaceable. I have a warranty replacment 2009 model and the cover of it is...

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.

My pump is making a loud humming noise and when I turned it on would not come on , just hummed. Tried again later and eventually came on but still making noise. Do I need a new pump. It is about 5 years...

My Sunterra pump made that noise and I had a problem getting it to come back on after unpluggin to clean pre-filter each time. It was not long after that the plastic impeller sheared in pieces (the pump was only 1 year old and thankfully under warranty) My guess is that this is fixing to happen to yours as well. You are lucky to get 5 years. There was no reason for mine to come aparts. Uunterra sent me a replacement pump which had been slightly re-designed of the same 2000 gl size and the new one jsut did the same thing (only 2 1/2 months old) I called them again which in the meantime will mean my pond going witout filtration once again. I am getting very upset about this and will be looking for a good deal on a different brand pump.
