Spa Motor Hums

I just refilled my inground spa which has a sta-rite motor/pump on it. When I attempted to start the spa motor it just hums with no water circulation. What can I do to correct this??

    I have a 2010 HotSprings Spa Sovereign model with an ACE saltwater sanitizing system. If I switch the ACE system off permanently, drain/refill the spa and stop using salt, can I still use the spa normally as long as I adjust the water chemistry to suit.

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.

Our pool/spa pump will cut off for approx. 20 minutes several times during an 8 hr cycle. It never use to do this. The pump is around 3 1/2 yrs. old.

If the motor is very hot it could be shutting off due to a thermal safety device.

Anything that makes the motor work too hard and/or heat up will trigger this.

Blockage in the water lines
Clogged pool filter
Worn motor bearings
Lack of air flow around the motor
Weak or damaged motor windings.

A defective thermal limit switch will **** off the pump when the pump is within heat and load limits.

When I turn it on it just makes a loud humming noise. Any ideas?? Thanks

Check to see if you can turn by hand, Open housing and do this. Turn on and see if you can spin it and make it start(CAREFUL) If it won't turn ether when off or while it has power going to it, UH-OH! it's time for a new motor. If it will turn and starts when you spin it, it is probably just a start capacitor. Good luck.

Pump hums then breaker flips

Something is binding in the pump try the impeller to see if it runs true when you have it apart. It may be cross threaded on the shaft. This is a common problem if you have a air leak in your system.

Loud buzzing sound began on start up

It could be several things but the most likely are: Something is spinning around with the motor shaft. Unplug the motor and "blast" water through the vent holes to clear debris. Let it dry completely before returning to service. Something could be caught in the impeller. Remove the front end and check. Squeals, loud hums, heat and vibration are indications of bad bearings.

Wires came off capacitor. motor seems to be running backwards

Pump motors used in most pool aplications can not be reversed. Changing the wires on the capacitor or reversing the line connections will not change the motor rotation. A failed capacitor can, from time to time, let a motor start "backwards" but it will not happen often if even at all. You might need to take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop for an inspection.
