Hopefully you have not fried the motor. To free a stuck motor: try to reach past the strainer to the impeller and turn it. If you can't do that, remove the electric end cover and find a double flat for a wrench where the shaft goes into the motor. Or maybe you can remove the spring thing from the end of the motor and move the shaft with a pair of vise grips or pliers. Don't damage the place where the spring thing mounts. Don't try to move the motor with the plastic fan thing near the pump, you'll just break it, and then you really have problems.
To keep a motor from sticking, thru off season occasionaly spin the pump, just a few seconds will do, don't need water.

SOURCE: lay z spa water pump is faulty where can I get a

Hi Im Chris From BVL Elecric,
I cover Bournemouth and surrounding areas and supply solutions to most home electrical problems.
A lovely lady customer called me out today to diagnose faulty
pump/heater that kept tripping the RCD.
After scouring the net and finding this same problem over and over again but no solution,I decided to get personal with the blighter!!!
RESULT:- problem solved,
Customer very happy,
no new parts fitted,
water heating fine now.
If you live in my coverage area,have a LAY-Z-SPA that is faulty,no or limited warranty then give me a ring and I will be only to happy to come on over and fix it for a small fee.
just think that dead spa/pool heater/pump could be heating your water again tomorrow and there is plenty of summer left to enjoy it.
You can find my details quite easily , just google BVL Electric Bournemouth

If the water pump is not circulating water you will want to do a simple procedure called "turning the impeller" You can call 888-997-6366 to be walked through this procedure over the phone.

Your search - how to take apart a sundance hot tub lx wua400-ii motor to fix the bad impeller - did not

The numbers you provided are of no help.
What is it that you want to do? Replace the shaft seal, because it is leaking, and replace the impeller as well? Or did your impeller break, and you want to replace it?
a little more info, helps us, to help you. To begin... S/D pumps have a part number of 6500 Not, 3500
so... Is this your pump?

Sundance Spas Pump 6500 367
if so, these are difficult impellers to remove. Because you don't have the best of access, to grab a hold of the impeller, to twist it off the shaft, which will be spun counterclockwise. But first, you have to get access to the shaft, on the opposite side of the motor, and lock into place so it will not turn, as you unspin the impeller. You will either use a flat blade screwdriver or, or a 7/16 inch wrench.

good luck

Circulation pump is running but FLO is displayed on panel and heat light goes out.

FLO is displayed because something has caused a reduction in water pressure through the heater. The spa control will turn the heater off when FLO is displayed to prevent a burn out.
I suggest checking the filter cartridge, the suction fittings & any valve which could be partially closed & restricting flow.
Try run the spa with out the filter cartridge if this clears the error then it is the cartridge.
If none of these work it is possible the your flow switch and/or pump is beginning to fail.
Good luck!

I have a 2005 Sundance 850 spa. Pump 1 continues to cycle on for about a minute and then shuts off and then cycles on for a minute. I can not turn it off from the control panel. Everything else works fine.

the motor running for a short period of time and turning off then back on then off is either going to be a bad winding in the motor or a bad relay on your circuit board.
Do you have any error codes on display in the topside panel?

My Jandy rs all button says the pump is off but the pump stays on. This has happened before and it seems to reset its self or after i turn the pump breaker off it resets. What is going on?

Very odd.

I would suspect a bad relay.

Go to the outside power center located at the equipment. Press the mode button until the "Service" light is on. Now press the filter pump button. Turn it off and on several times to make sure the relay is working correctly. If not, replace the relay.

If this is not the problem then I would reset the board at the power center by pressing the recessed "Reset" button with the tip of a pencil or pen.

If this does not work, you could call Jandy and have them flash your board with the newest software.

On the sundance spa optima the watchdog error came on the control board a few seconds after the hottub was turned back on after refilling, how can i fix this?

You probably just have an air lock at the pump. This will keep it from pumping water. You just need to open the drain valve for a few seconds to relieve the air. when it runs water you should be good to go.

Heeeelp! How to hook up hoses on Sundance spa

There is a skimmer in the side of your tub( the part that skimms water off the top ) and what is called a main drain or a better tearm is deep suction that pulls water from the bottom of the tub and helps collect heavy dirt from in the tub these two lines ( three if there is more than one main drain) These will all come together and then hook to the front of the pump. If your filter is under the skimmer basket the top of the pump will go to the heater and then back to the spa. If your filter in not under the skimmre basket then it will come after the pump then on to the heater. So in answer to your second question, the front of the pump draws the water in and the top pushes the water out. But make sure that your heater is last in line so it only deals with clean water and it will not run on the suction side of the pump as it need water pressure in it to start and contious flow to keep it from over heating. Hope this helps.
