Not sure if your pump is the same as the one I just took apart but with the Aquaflo on that I did you hold the motor shaft with vise grips and the impeller blade is reverse threaded on so it spins off to the right. Sorry if that is not the info you are looking for.If this doesn't help you, try going to the Astel website or if they don't have a website go to a company that sells those pumps and a lot of times you can obtain the info from there. Good luck.

How do you detach the impeller from the motor shaft


Lock the end of the shaft opposire the impeller and turn the impeller counter-clockwise as you look at the impeller. Some of them require a little 'convincing' in order to get them to spin.

My Hayward just hums when I turn it on and after a few seconds the breaker pops.


You will need to disassemble the pump and check the impeller. remove any debris and try turning the impeller by hand. If it does not move or is dragging, you will need to overhaul the pump. Possibly a shaft seal leak has damaged the motor bearing(s). Replace the shaft seal and motor bearings. If the motor is badly deteriorated, you might need to replace the motor. Note... the impeller turns counterclockwise to loosen. you may need special tools to grip and hold the motor shaft and the impeller to prevent damage to the impeller. If the impeller is seized on the shaft from rust, you may have to break it to get it off. reassemble with teflon lubricant on the shaft threads when reinstalling the impeller. This will prevent seizure later.

My new AO Smith 2HP pool pump won't pump water, just hums


I'm guessing that you replaced the motor that goes to the pump, not the pump itself. You know the motor works just fine. Is the motor rotating in the correct manner(clockwise or counterclockwise) in relation to the rotation of the pump? Have you checked the pump to see if the impeller is working/rotating? Is the motor hooked up to the pump correctly, so that the motor is turning the impeller? Are all connections to the pump tight, so there are no suction leaks? Have you primed the pump and purged it of any air locks?

Replace pool motor


First you'll need to take the outer 6 bolts off the pump housing and that will allow you to remove the impeller and impeller housing with the motor. Then you can remove all the impeller parts and get to the bolts that hold your motor to the housing....
When you get the impeller and the housing free, check to see if your motor will turn... alot of times the motors get jammed because the pump sucks debris and jams in the impeller.... you may be able to still use your motor...worth a try...
