Hayward above ground pool pump will not start.

When the electric switch is flipped, the pump hums but won't come on. The shaft is not turning. I can move it freely either way by hand so its not froze, but it will not turn

Sounds like the windings in the motor are shot! but does it have a capacitor? if it does you could simply have a bad starting capacitor so don't let it hum for that will surely scar the windings

Hayward Pump motor, hums but won't start. If I turn the shaft it will keep running but once I turn if off it will not run until I do the same thing again. I have replaced the capacitor but still the s


1 or 2 capacitors on this motor?
Sometimes there are two...
One is a "Start" capacitor and if a 2nd one, that one is a "Run" capacitor.

If only 1 capacitor and you have replaced it... if not a faulty capacitor, then your windings are shot?

When I test a motor with this symptom, I will use the "Clock Face" method of checking for "Dead Spots" on the winding/stator:
Once you have removed the shaft cap on the back of the motor, I presume you have done this since that is only way to turn the shaft manually to get it to run in the manner you described. Place a small mark (1/4" long?) on the outside perimeter of the shaft, say at the 12:00 position. See picture attached...
Then flip switch, does it start or hum?
Then rotate shaft until your mark is now at the 1:00 position. Flip power switch, running or humming?
Do this at all clock positions as you turn/rotate shaft until you reach 12:00 once more. If the pump hums at all clock positions completely dead motor or bad capacitor. If a dead spot is at only one clock position, then absolutely, bad motor - either rebuild or replace.
Coincidentally the motor may stop each time on a dead spot, where the motor won't start due to a fried portion of the stator/winding/armature, only a major repair fixes this. The purpose of the test is to place the position of the stator in a different position in relation to the windings. If humming all the way around, then possibly a bad capacitor, because it is not starting in any position. If it starts say at all positions except 4:00 and 9:00 then motor is bad.

Good luck

What exactly is wrong with your pool pump? If it won't start at all, check for improper or loose connections, blown fuses or tripped breakers, and open your switches and replays. Manually check the rotation of your motor shaft. Make sure that there is free movement and no obstructions. If the motor hums, but won't start, check for obstructions and check the Centrifugal switch to see if it is stuck in the open position. If you have low flow, check pool pumps for clogged or restricted strainer/suction line and discharge line of filter. You could also have an air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return fittings). Low voltage could cause loss of suction. Check for plugged or restricted impeller.

It sounds like the start switch contacts are not making good contact or there also may be a weak capacitor. These possible solutions do require a basic knowledge of motors to remedy. Start contacts can be cleaned and adjusted until proper replacement can be done.

The impeller is still jammed you need to get it cleaned out. You can try with a pair of needle knose pliers if that doesnt work your gona have to remove the pump bolts that hold the motore to the pump pod. Remove the bolts around the motor and seperate it this will give you better axcess to the impeller. Clean it out and try to move it if the impeller will not spin freely with the debris removed the motor has burned up .
