Inside the back case on the motor you'll see a white piece with two copper colored arms that have two silver points that almost touch. If these are rusty I've found that the motor won't turn over
. A quick fix is to take some 600+ grit Aluiminum oxide sandpaper and give each of those contact points a brisk sanding to remove any oxidation. This will help the points make a positive contact . Make sure while very obvious that the motor is unplugged first.

Motor hums attemps to turn but does not


If motor hums and does not rotate, the motor winding is bad.
Motor is overheating and will stop humming and it will not work again.
30 years ago, motors were rewound at local electric shop.
Today the copper winding and steel parts are recycled or thrown into landfill.
Check warranty papers and then buy new pump.

I have a proline pool pump model # SD-15-1N11CC and it worked fine until I back washed my pool and now it stopped working. It makes a humming noise and nothing else.


C. MOTOR HUMS, BUT DOES NOT START—
Check for:
1. Centrifugal switch stuck in open position.or if capacitator start could be bad capacitator. Possible loose connection.
2. Binding of motor shaft. (something stuck in impeller) Does motor turn free. IF not check for jamed impeller. If it she sp2605x7 you can view a manual here:

I HAVE A MAGNUM FORCE PUMP. iT WAS RUNNING THIS


It could be the capacitor again, but most likely if it stopped while running, its not that, unless you had a brief power failure. The motor may have a built in thermal overload which turned the pump off. If it only humms then it could either be locked up by something in the impller, or could be the bearings in the motor have failed. If the motor doesn't smell "burnt" then you might stand a change to disassemble the pump. Disassemble the motor and replace bearings. Replace the mechanical seal while you have it apart. OR you could buy a new motor, as it is 10 years old.

Pump hums then breaker flips


Something is binding in the pump try the impeller to see if it runs true when you have it apart. It may be cross threaded on the shaft. This is a common problem if you have a air leak in your system.

1-1/2 hp sprinkler pump hangs up and just hums sometime


The impeller and or bearings are seized. You may have to force the impeller loose (breaking it to get the unit apart). See if you can obtain the bearings and impeller and shaft seal before attempting the overhaul. Be aware that the hardware attaching the motor to the pump housing may need lubrication before attempting to remove.

Whisperflo Pump 1.5 Hp problem


The pump is probably fine the motor is the problem. If it just hums it might just be the capacitor on top of the motor. Don't know how long it sat there not able to start. Was the motor extremely hot ? If it got too hot may have damaged the motor. Motor is replaceable without replacing the pump head.

Haywards Super Pump Tick tack sound


You may have been running it on the wrong voltage for 3 years especiallyif you feeding it 120 volts to a 220 setup. Assuming it is getting the right voltage and it clicks off and on you run winding is bad so the start winding cliicks on to bring it up to run speed opens the switch but the run winding isnt there so it repeats the process forever till it fails.

Jetted bath tub has stopped working - motor hums, will not run


The shaft on the motor should spin freely as should the impeller when attached to the pump. If there is drag on either, replace the pump and motor assembly. I have worked on jetted tubs for the past 5 years, I have seen seized pumps more than once.
