Need replacement pump


pons pumps seldom fail as they are a simple magnet on a shaft inside a filed
They stop working because weed and gunk wraps around the shaft and jams the magnet
they usually respond if the end is pulled of and the insides are washed out
they will not spin when out of water
Parts ,like magnet, impeller ,shaft etc are available from most pond /fish shops

Pump is making a grinding sound. it has been pulled and is debris free. the pump is approx.5-6 years old


Check the impeller shaft for cracks and rough patches. harlok_6.jpg If the impeller shaft is still smooth and in one piece the main motor bearing is damaged or worn out. A main bearing is not replaceable as accessing it would compromise the motor housing.

How to take the pump off the motor?


Take the screws off the outer cover fo the wet end. That will expose the impeller.
At the other end of the pump is a small metal cap in the middle. Pry that off with a screwdriver. That reveals the shaft of the motor which has a slot in it. This allows you to hold the shaft still with a large screwdriver.
While someone holds the shaft with a big screwdriver, you rotate the impeller counter clockwise to unscrew it off the motor shaft.
In my case the impeller was so caked onto the shaft with rust that we could not loosen it. We broke the impeller and still could not unscrew it. The screwdriver keeps jumping out of the slot in the shaft.
So the next step was to take the shaft out of the motor. On the far end of the motor are 4 small looking bolt heads. Undo those. They go right through the motor into the 4 legs of the wet end.
Stand the motor up with the wet end up. Pull hard to pull the wet end motor cover off the motor and you will then have the wet end and armature of the motor in your hands. Heavy.
Place some wood into a large vice and then grip the big silver part of the armature in the vice. Then unscrew the impeller.

How to remove the impeller from a Masport Onga HJ200 pump to access and replace the seal between the pump and the motor.


The impeller is screwed on to the motor shaft; to remove it you need to hold the motor shaft at the fan end so that you can unscrew the impeller - normal right hand thread. Holding the shaft can sometimes be quite difficult so a good suggestion would be to remove the fan cowl along with the fan, this will enable you to secure the shaft with a small pipe wrench or similar. Once you have the impeller removed it will be possible to ascertain what steps need to be taken next - you may need a new shaft sleeve as well as a new mechanical seal assembly.
Good luck,

The bearing needs to be pressed onto the ceramic shaft before inserting the impeller into the housing. Then it just drops in (while trying to hold on to it the best you can to keep it from slamming in.). New bearings didn't come with the new impeller? If not you will have to carefully pry out the old bearing from inside the housing.

I'm replacing the impeller and seal assembly on a Hayward 3/4 HP Max-Flo pump as the original impeller broke at the shaft. I had to remove the impeller thread assy. inside the seal by splitting it as there...


First remove seal plate and mounting plate on motor. The front end bell of the motor is alunimun and is probally corroded, you will need to scrape most of this corrosition off the front of motor and then wire brush this clean. A coat of paint will not hurt at this point or coat or coat in a good pool lubricant to stop corrosion in the future. This calcium will build to the point of warpin seal plate and tweaking impeller shaft and it will quite often crack the seal also. As far as reassembly hand tighten only. If the pump has the motor it came with you have to shut the power off at the breaker and carefully use a 3/8 open end wrench to hold the back of the motir shaft. If the motor has been replaced you will need to check with the manifctuer.

Pondmaster 250: Impeller or motor broke?


pondmaster 250 comes with a 3 year manufacturer warranty you should just exchange it for a new one. Overheating from low water sounds like the issue but as long as the shaft and housing are not scarred from debris they will replace without any questions
