You can get into the case ok but this is probally in the cord and getting that free from the caseing is the trick and then getting it back together so it won't leak is yet another. after some thirty years in the buisness I've found that due to exposure to the elements the cord you pull into the seal and the cord seal it self will not hold water for more than a few months and new parts wait time and aggrevation make replacement an option. But if it sounds like I'm saying don't try this, I'm not. What I am saying is if you try to fix it and it dosen't work don't feel bad, your not out anything but your time. If it works you win. When you take apart the back of pump you will find a rubber seal as you will find a comperssion seal around the cord. First usins a fine wet and dry sandpaper roughen the cord outside the pump and the rubber seal at the rear plate do not lube these. Pull some new cord through tighten compression seal at cord trim cord and rewire pump past weak spot caused by pump housing reset back plate tightening evenly and firmly but not so tight as to cause plate to warp. then tie off cord to some place on pump so if some one pulls on pump it isn't pulling on cord at houseing.

Wher does the o ring go on my pump? I cleaned it & didnt even realize it had an o ring til now

The O ring goes between the impeller housing cover and the pump. Remove the 4 screws and pull the housing cover off and you will see a thin groove that the O ring fits into.

Pondmaster 1200gph pump stopped working. Inside

Sounds like the impeller broke.

Just remove the 4 phillips head screws to remove the housing, then pull the impeller out. When replacing the impeller be sure to have a good grip on it as the magnetic attraction will pull it in pretty hard.

The pump may still be under warranty, if so call the number on this web page: You can also order parts from them.

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
