You need to get to the shaft at the back of the motor to hold it while you use water pump pliers or the like to turn it off. It will unscrew in the regular direction but if it has a set screw to hold it in (You will find this at the center of the impeller) this will be a left hand screw so you will go clockwise to loosen it. This should get the impeller off. If not you will need to put a screwdriver in the side of the impeller and give it a hit to lossen the impeller. Good luck.

the absence of the copper cone will not cause a leak, however, there is a different shaft seal that needs to be used in lieu not having the copper cone installed.

If the impeller is damaged or cracked, that can cause a leak at the shaft seal. If you replace the impeller, the shaft seal will most likely need to be replaced as well.

Remove impeller housing cover. Insert screwdriver carefully into back of motor to keep the armature from turning then unscrew impeller clockwise or opposite the direction of operation.

The motor is running OK, but it won't pump the water


a suction leak will cause the pump not to prime... check the lid gasket, lid for cracks,pipes and valves. you can rap the fittings with electrical tape, to help you locate leaks.. a shaft seal is a good start, this will allow you to ree the condition of the impeller . it may be plugged, also see if there is cracks in the hair basket it will allow trash to get into the impeller

My2 hp max e pro pump runs but barely moves any water


Have you opened up the wet end? If you have pine trees near you, it is probably a blocked impeller and needs to be cleaned. If this is not the case, is the pump basket full of water or air?
If it is full of water, it is either the impeller, or the motor bearing.

if it is full of air, it is an o-ring or shaft seal. more likely the shaft seal. Always check the impeller first.

Pump is leekin water


there are a couple of places where the pump may leak. The discharge fitting, the seal plate o-ring, or the shaft seal. If the shaft seal is leaking, water will be dripping from the bottom of the pump where the motor mates to the seal plate.

How do you replace a seal on a Sta-Rite pool pump? How do you remove the old seal? Ceramic and graphite.


Replacing a shaft seal requires some good mechanical ability.
first, always make sure power is off at the breaker before you work.
You'll have to remove the band holding the wet end to the seal plate. Then remove the diffuser covering the impeller. Remove the cover on the back of the motor. You either need a 7/16 open end wrench or a armature tool to hold the motor shaft while you unthread the impeller (if the impeller has a screw in the middle, you will have to remove it by turning clockwise, left hand threads) counterclockwise. You can then pull the carbon part of the seal off of the impeller, make sure to remove all of it including the metal sleeve. You will then have to remove the seal plate and push the ceramic part out from the back. You can then clean and lube the seal plate and install the new ceramic part of the seal, try not to touch the ceramic with your hands if possible. You can then lightly lube the impeller shaft and slide the carbon part of the seal with the carbon facing toward the ceramic as you thread it on. If the seal plate had a copper heat sink, you can either replace it or use a different size seal. (I believe it's a PS-201) Re-install the seal plate, impeller (and screw if applicable) and diffuser. You should now be ready to mate the seal plate to the wet end. Make sure you fill the pump before you try starting it up, especially with a new (dry) seal.

I had to replace my pump motor and can't get my pump to quit leaking at the joint. I am trying RTV Sealer as we speak.


Did you change the seals? Whenever pump motors are replaced, the ceramic shaft (mechanical) seal should be replaced. Its also a good idea to replace the seal plate and diffuser seals.

Tring to take the pump face off the motor


You have to remove the back cover from the motor. Next loosen the capacitor. Put a 7/16" wrench on the shaft and the pump impeller will screw off by hand.

Punp leaking water think around barrins


You need to change your pump seal. It goes on the shaft of the motor as it enters the rear housing of the pump. If it has been leaking for a while,and started to get really loud you might want to replace the motor while you got it apart.
