If you have replaced the impeller and seals there must be an air leak or blocked hose somewhere - perhaps on the inlet seal?

SOURCE: pump seals

The impeller is threaded on to the shaft. The trick is to hold the shaft in order to untread the impeller. The surest method is to disassemble the back of the motor, exposing the opposite end of the shaft. There should be a spot to put a wrench in order to hold the shaft immobile. Then, it's simply a matter of unthreading the shaft. A strap wrench does a great job of holding the impeller without damaging it.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi magnum pool pump impeller broke

The impeller on the Magnum pump unthreads counter clockwise as do other impellers. There is a shaft of the motor that runs the length of the motor, on the back of the motor when you take the bell housing off you will see a small silver spot with a **** in it for a standard screwdriver. Put the biggest one in there you can and then grab the impeller and turn it counter clock wise and it should unthread. Sometimes they won't if it has been on there a number of years. You will need to break it off if it doesn't unthread. Then just purchase a new Impeller for the Jacuzzi Magnum Pump.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Neither...it is threaded onto the motor shaft. Lock the shaft at the end opposite the impeller and turn it off counter clockwise.

Re Installed a rebuilt pump and now the pump starts surging once I open up the flow to the max. Previously it did not.


I think an air leak into the suction side, or with the new-found power of a tight impeller, the water level in the skimmer box is a bit low.

Check all joints, especially the rubber bellows which is usually on the suction side of the pump basket, and the seal on top of that basket.

Bad news if he ran it without water he may have damaged the seals inside. If you screw in your water hose and water immediatly leaks from pump head then those seals need to be replaced they cost about $75. If its an RKV pump they are very resiliant and expensive they are usually worth rebuilding.

Yes, the manufacturer should have a parts kit for replacing the orings and seals..it's probably leaking right where the motor meets the impeller...there should be a seal inside there...the rebuild kit should have a blow-up diagram to assist you in changing parts

Im getting a loud buzzing noise when the pump is running


could be an obstruction in the impeller, or the bearings going out. You can split the pump in two be removing the large clamp or 4-6 bolts holding the two halves together. (not the 4 bolts holding the motor to seal plate, but the the bolts holding the seal plate to the seal plate housing. once you remove the clamp or bolts, the motor with seal plate and impeller and diffuser can all be pulled back away from the pump. You need to remove the diffuser (plastic housing that goes around the impeller) usually by a series of 3 to 6 small screws. Now you can easily try and spin the impeller and check for obstructions that might have bound it. If you do not see anything stuck in the impeller, then the noise is likely coming from the motor (probably the bearings) you can replace the motor, or have it rebuilt. if your not gunna rebuild it you can deal with it as long as the noise doesn't bother you and the motor is not getting too hot

1 HP StaRite Pump 15" inout Center Discharge 240V wHair Lint Pot: Impellers on pump wont turn. Motor not running...


what happens is the pump gets staved for water and this damages the shaft seal, water slowly over time leaks into the motor and pollutes the grease int the bearing and causes it to fail. it's fairly easy fix, just have the motor rebuilt by your local pool pump motor repair guy for about 75.00 and your back up and running. beats paying 200.00 or more for a new motor.
the sta rite is the top of the line pump, i have had them in my shop over 40 years old ! ask your motor repair guy how to get the most life out of your pump. knowledge is king .. remember to prime the pump after any pump repair !! .. jay longwood florida

Model W1800 stop pumping after less than 6mos makes lots of noise and just a little discharge


I have had the same problem everyone else has had with these pumps. I did serious research on these pumps and came up with a rebuild kit some parts bought some I make. I did mine 2 years ago and still working like a champ and have done over 20 locally with no problems. If your pump is noisy or the impeller has fallen off (typical) due to water getting in the unit and causing the bearings to fail email me and I can rebuild your pump. The process is simple send me the pump I will look at it and see if it can be rebuilt at NO CHARGE if it can be rebuilt you will save over 60% of a new one. Don't spend $349 - $599 on a new one let me look at it for free if I can rebuild it great if not you will have to buy a new one. I am not a dealer for any pumps so you will not have to worry about me selling you a pump and if you want the old one back pay the shipping and it it all yours.

On my way to work my tempo overheated and shut down. could this be the thermostat or water pump


check for water flow in the radiator. if the hoses dont expand when you rev the engine, the water pump is probably bad. alot of the factory water pumps have a plastic impeller on them, and the impeller will break in pieces inside the pump housing. if you take the hose off the pump you can see the impeller. napa sells a new one with a aluminum impeller and its a new one, not rebuilt.
