Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

Watertech presscontrol Pump will not start when tap turned on. Intermittent issue. Fine once going. Does it about once a day. To make it go, turn the power off, turn the pump by the fan on the end of the motor. Turn the power back on. It goes. No resistance when turning it by hand. Pump is not seizing up. Not sure if the watertech presscontrol system is not detecting the pressure drop, or if the pump is not starting for some other reason.

SOURCE: Air compressor w/5hp motor

Assuming that the motor is factory matched to pump, it should be powerful enough to turn the pump. Most problems with motors are related to pressure switch and/or capacitor. The pressure switch could have burned contacts causing low amps to reach the motor. The capacitor should test at least 90% of rated value printed on capacitor. Some volt meters have capacitor check setting. Also this motor at 5 hp must draw lots of amps. The outlet should be rated at least 20 amps and plug the compressor directly into oulet without an extension cord. \
Secondary problem is the in-tank check valve. The check valve should hold in tank pressure without leaking back to the head of the pump. If check valve leaks, replace it with any brand of same thread size. enjoy

SOURCE: The pump motor hums, but won't start.

A humming motor usually means a bad starting capacitor, but it could be some other things. If you see some water movement that means that your impeller is spinning and the capacitor is good, and in this case you would want to check for air leaks on the suction side of the pump. Make sure that there is water at least 3/4 of the way up in the pump and the valves are in the right position (sometimes turning the skimmer off and just sucking from the main drain can help). Also check to make sure that there is water in the skimmer, and it is not getting sucked dry. Next lubricate the pump lid gasket, and try some silicone around the threaded pipe on the front of the pump. If all this fails you could have some debris stuck in the impeller.

SOURCE: motor hums then clicks off

Has the motor seemed a little slower in starting than usual? If so then you probably have a weak or defective motor capacitor. Try switching out with a new one.They are inexpensive.Try to turn the motor shaft at rear (under end cap) while it attempts to start. If the motor kicks on then replace capacitor.

You have a problem in the fuel pump relay circuit for sure then. I'm betting the relay, but it could be that dropping resistor.

My 1997 chevy lumina will not start it just makes a clicking sound when i tr to turn te key


Sounds as if you have a bad starter. The vehicle running differently when cold is a whole different issue that has nothing to do with the starter. Below is a picture of the starter and its location. You can have someone turn the key as if to start the car while you actually touch the starter. If it is bad you will feel it trying to enguage or click inside. I'm guessing that's the clicking noise you hear. If the vehicle is in a bad location and you need to move it in order to replace the starter, again while someone is turning the key to start the car you can tap on it with a small hammer or something and GM starters are pretty good about loosening up and starting while you are tapping on it. This doesn't fix the problem it just will get you going so you can move it. This "tapping" works about 85 percent of the time on GM starters. Either way if you feel the starter trying to go with somebody turning the key, more than likely you are dealing with a bad starter. Hope this helps.

When I turn the key on and hear the high-pitched whining noise (it's not very loud), the bike starts. No noise, no start. It's intermittent. Failed once on the road. Took to the local Honda shop twice....


That would be my first guess!! If you locate the fuel pump you can try tapping on it and see if it becomes intermittant. Or if it isn't too much just go ahead and change it. Expecially if it left you stranded once already. Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

Changed fuel pump and fuel filter, now x5 2002 won't start


1. use scanner to find out if there's trouble code.

2.. it's not clear if the starter (motor) turns as you try to start the engine, if not, check starter motor including intermittent (maybe) problem with the ignition switch.

3.if starter motor turns everytime you try to start: check the electrical ignition system: coils & spark plugs

Cars turns over, but will not start


fuel pump??? two ways to test one good, one not so good. fist, without cranking over the motor, have someone go and listne in the back where the fuel tank is and try and here if there is a whirring sound when the key is put in the on position. you might not be able to here it. second (have a rag handy) undo one of the fuel lines and see if there is any pressure going to it = if none = dead fuel pump. third way....if it is easy to access the top of the fuel tank where the pump is, do so. remove pump and see if it works. also, if its an externally mounted pump, gently tap it with a wrench on the outside of the pump casing...this an actually make them work for a short time.
