Question about A O Smith Motors Pool & Spa
I am trying to remove an Emerson EB841 pool pump motor but it does not want to separate from the impeller. What should I do to complete the removal? I did it about 10 yrs ago with a different motor, but this one was installed by a pool shop.

Look to make sure there is no ***** in the center of the impeller, if so, it loosens to the right. the impeller will come off by turning it to the left (facing the impeller) if you still have trouble with the impeller, search your area for your ''local pool pump motor repair guy'' with free testing.
he should be able to save the impeller and install a new seal for around $20.
remember to prime the pump with water after any repair !

SOURCE: water leaking
some times you need two people one to hold the shaft the other to turn impeller on you need to put in a vice wraped in a towel and not to tight or break it off and replace it to

Did you separate motor from pump? If not, then there is most likely small debris lodged between impeller vanes which must be removed with a small pick or wire. hope this helps.

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.

If it's a separate shaft, it requires a puller tool, but first you have to remove a nut that holds the impeller to the shaft. If the shaft is part of the impeller, meaning that it is a one piece fabrication, then there is nothing you can do about it. You haven't even stated where does this impeller come from, a washing machine, a water pump, etc.

First, separate motor and pump. Remove back cover of motor. Drive shaft of motor either has a slot on end for a large screwdriver or a flat on it for a wrench.(usually 7/16) Hold shaft and unscrew impeller.
