Is the internal motor in a tsurumi 50pu2-15s


No it should be completely dry and clean, check the date of purchase, you will need to replace the mechanical seal and clean the motor,its not suppose to happen,

ask your tsurumi distributor if you want to repair it or ask about the warranty, i am assuming that the pump stop working so thats why you open it and ask about it here, make sure you dont see any burn (black) wire on the stator, if you see any burn on the stator its a bad news,


If there is no burn part,
If you have just a few dip of oil in the motor try to remove the oil as much as you can with (electric part (brake) cleaner) or rag and replace the mechanical seal,


If there is a lot of oil all over in the motor, if he is not already damage (Burn),you can try to wash the motor with clean or light soapy water and then let him dry for a few days or in a oven to make sure all the water is evaporate, then replace the seal and cross your finger,we can never be sure that this procedure will work due to this small electric motor, and you never know how long the motor might have run with liquid in it, but i say its 51% succesfull chance to work, if you have to pay someone to do that it might be worthed to buy a new unit.


Hope i help you,

What kind of is used in a simer submersible


The Simer brand of submersible dewatering pumps rely on being fully submersed in water for proper cooling and for the seals to remain water tight and effective.

According to the manufacturer, there is no oil used in the pump, other than a very small amount that was used in assembling the pump at the factory, so you shouldn't oil the pump, but rather follow the recommendations as to making sure the pump is installed properly.

Here's the owners manual for your particular pump (Model #2300) so you can check the troubleshooting FAQ's and so you can also contact the manufacturer, should you need replacement parts or need to make a warranty claim, etc.

Submersible utility pump needs oil,what kind should I use in it.


What looks like 'oil' coming out of your pump is actually water! It has leaked and is fully contaminated. The seal for the pump must have leaked and it filled up. Take the 'big screw' back out and drain it and let it dry for a couple days. Then use some silicone as a gasket and put it back together. You may run again! It will probably fail sooner rather than later with a bad bearings from the water damage. That's what gave it the oily appearance.

Oil leaked out


Most utility pumps use mineral oil, but more importantly how did it run out? If a seal was bad the oil should have been milky. It will overheat without proper oil level.
