Can my shaft spin and not my impellor. how can i check

the impeller is usually screw onto the shaft or the shaft has a D (flatspot on one side to lock impeller) so no, the shaft cannot spin without the impeller moving unless the shaft is snapped or impeller is totally stripped (ive never seen either)
if the pump is running but not pushing water, take the wet end off and make sure there is no debris (leaves, worms etc) caught in the impeller fins. you will be amazed at how much that will reduce the performance of a pump

Motor very hard to turn. Bearing at end with power cord turns freely. Bearing against the pump hardly turns. How do you remove the pump and get to the bearing to replace? Should the pump be replaces as...


to answer the question "should the pump be replaced as well?)
there are a few things that can answer that question for us. What is the condition of the existing pump? How old is it? Can the impeller even be removed from the shaft without breaking it?

Basically to change the motor bearings you must remove the 10-16 screws on the wet end.
Remove the cap you just unscrewed.
remove the small 1" round shaft cap at the rear of the MOTOR. (on the electrical end) this should come out with just a flathead screwdriver. (if it bends a little its no big deal.)
Lock onto the shaft end we just uncovered with a LARGE flathead screwdriver.
While locked onto the shaft, turn the impeller counterclockwise until removed.
Note: some impellers have a set screw in the center of the impeller.If you have one, it is reverse thread and must be removed by turning clockwise.)

If you are unable to get the impeller off of the shaft, you might as well buy a whole new pump. These pumps are a few hundred dollars, but if you have to purchase a new motor, a new impeller, and a new shaft seal at the very least, then the cost is right up there with a new pump.

If you can remove the impeller, keep reading.
Next remove the (4) - 1/4" hex through bolts located on the motor at the electrical end.
With the impeller removed and the through bolts removed, the wet end should now seperate from the motor.
To remove the bearings, we must seperate the front faceplate from the motor housing by taking a large flathead screwdriver to the small flat notch in between the plate and the motor housing. Pry in small even incriments all the way around the plate to remove this safely.

Once this is done, the bearing can be removed. For this we need a good quality bearing puller (these can be expensive and if you dont own one this is another reason to buy a new pump.)
Lock the 2 arms of the bearing puller around the outside of the bearing, and lock the center pin on the shaft and turn clockwise to remove.

When installing the new bearing, use a piece of 3/4" metal electrical conduit about 6-8 inches inlegth.
Place the bearing on the shaft and fit the electrical conduit on top of it, making sure to only apply pressure to the RACE of the bearing (the inside track) tap lightly until the new bearing is in place.

Once this is done, reverse these instructions to reassemble.

Heater core or blower making noises

Not the core making noise it is most likely the blower motor or the fan cage attached to the blower motor... most blowers are attached under the dash on pass. side or under the hood at the pass. side firewall area attached by approx. 5/6 #8 metric small bolts opr 1/4 inche or the like, it has a small black vent hose attached to it that also needs to simply be pulled off ...this will give you an idea where the blower is, the fan cage once you pull out the blower and disconnect the electrical plug and ground wire is mounted on the blower motors shaft with a #10 or a 3/8 inch or the like nut retaining it on the shaft.

Removal of Aqua-Flo pump from motor

You will need to pull the front of the pump off then unscrew the impeller. The impeller will be set on the shaft and will take some force to break free. Hold ing the back of the shaft and using water pump pliers on the face of the impeller will usually work but sometimes I will wedge a screwdriver in the fin of the impeller and hit it sharply (not hard) with a hammer to break it free. Then the housing will just pull free of the motor. When replaceing, the impeller just goes on hand tight. Hope this helps and good luck.

How do you remove the motor from a Flotec FPS5172, 1-1/2 HP.

The impeller screws on the motor shaft. First replace the through bolts in the motor. These are the long bolts, they will just cause headachs. On the back of the motor their will be a place to hold the shaft from turning, If you hold the shaft the impeller just unscrews. If you look in the center of the impeller it may have a set screw holding it to the shaft. If you have one of these it will be a left hand screw. Then you will need to break the impeller free as the brass that holds the impeller on will stick to the stainless steel of the shaft. Don't let how tight this is fool you when you put this back together it just goes on hand tight. Good luck

When removing the impeller, how do you hold the shaft still?

Im guessing ...

On the motors I maintain, I remove the back cover. There is a start cap (usually black) on the left side held in place with a clamp. Use a phillips to loosen the clamp. DONT TOUCH ANYTHING that looks like a terminal, and be careful of the centrifical switch on the end of the shaft. Move the cap out of the way. The shaft has two flats that just happen to be 1/2 inch, Put an end wrench on the flats and you j
will have no trouble removing the impeller.

I hope this helps you

I have a 2 horse flowtec sprinker pump,

Don't feel stupid this is a design thing to make sure I can make money and you can stand there and say "Hey I could do that" If your impeller has a lock screw in the center of it that is left hand, so it unscrews clockwise. If it dosen't have one we move on, Looking at the front of the pump take a strong flat blade screwdriver in your left hand and insert in the left side of the impeller on edge. Then while holding it firmly with a small hammer or like device give the screwdriver a sharp hit straight down on the edge to break the impeller free. If this dosen't do the job after one or two hits you will have to go to plan B. Fornthis you will need to go to the back of the motor. If there is a small round cover about half dollar size dead center pry this off and use a adjustable wrench to hold the shaft and another wrench to hold the adjustable while use water pump pliers or the like to break impeller free by turning counter clockwise. If the moter has a full cover over the back remove this after shuting the power off at the breaker then take a 3/8 open end wrench and weave it into the end of the shaft and behind the cintrifacl switch on the end of the shaft the shaft will have two flat sides you can put the wrench on again useing chanel locks or the like turn impeller off makeing sure the wrench on the back is secure. You will need to use some force to break the impeller free and if the wrench slips their is a real threat of breaking parts on the back of the motor. Now rember when you go to put it back together just hand tight putting it back on. Good luck.

Impeller loose on pump motor shaft

The bore in the impeller is spun out. Mix some JB Weld and apply a liberal amount to the bore of the impeller, install it back on the motor shaft and rotate the shaft a 1/2 turn to distribute the weld before cure. Originally the impeller was a press fit. Don't allow food to get sucked into the pump, lock down and damage to the impeller will occur
