SOURCE: The drain pump only turns 1 turn counterclockwise and clicks to a stop. What happened?

To check the pump you should remove it from the washer and try to rotate its pulley manually to both sides. If it doesn't turn freely (frozen or stiff) look for foreign object inside the pump. In case the pump is clean and doesn't turn freely,you should replace it/ Good luck !

Brita faucet filter adapter is stuck in my faucet

It sounds like the adapter was screwed in at an angle. This causes the threads to cross in turn making it near impossible to unscrew. Since it is plastic I recommend buying a new adapter. I know it's unfortunate, however it is a lost cause.

Hi, I have a QC 1072 A.O. Smith pool pump motor. How to get the impeller off? Which direction does the impeller spin off? Where to but impeller and seal? Thank you very much Greg

The impeller is just screwed on the shaft. COUNTERCLOCKWISE to remove. Some have a screw in the center attaching it to shaft. This is removed by by turning CLOCKWISE.(reverse threads) Remove back cover and secure shaft with a wrench. There are flats on the shaft to hold it. You might need a large pipe wrench to loosen impeller. Wrap with rag so you don't damage impeller.

I have a proline 1.5hp pump need to replace the shaft seal. I can't seem to get the plastic impeller off. We use a screwdriver to hold the shaft screw and try to turn the impeller counter clockwise...

Keep trying - It is stuck and will likely break but you have to remove it to change the seal. It is not uncommon to need to replace the impeller when the seal fails since the water gets behind the impeller shaft and rusts the metal causing the impeller to bind. If you still cannot get it free pull the motor thru-bolts and lock the rotor once removed from the motor in a vice. Use a large pair of channel locks to break the impeller free...replace it if necessary.

Black & decker mm850 can not get blade off so can replace how do I get off tried loosen clockwise and counterclockwise plates move will not loosen up

The nut is counterclockwise but will most likely take an impact wrench to remove the blade because the impact will not need the blade or spindle to be held in order to remove the nut.

Dont understand why on top of an side of scope setting there is ur ur instead of left right or up down

The "U" indicates Up on the elevation dial, and the "R" indicates Right on the windage dial. Turn the elevation dial clockwise to move the point of impact up, counterclockwise moves down. Similarly, turning the windage dial clockwise moves Right, and counterclockwise moves left. Here's a scan from the Zeiss Conquest manual:
Good luck!

Thank you for posting your question here on

Lock the shaft using a wrench at the end where the electric leads connect. Then spin the impeller off counter-clockwise.

How does the impeller come off of the motor shaft

It unscrews. If it has a lock screw in the center that is left handed so it unscrews in a clockwise direction. Then the impeller unscrews in a counter clockwise direction. Usually needing a good sharp rap to get it started. I usually use a screwdriver held sideways in the impeller and I hit it straight down with a cresent wrench.This will usually start it spimming. if that dosen't work you will have hold the back of the motor shaft and break it free by turning it with water pump pliers or the like.

J 440 treadmill belt moved all the way to left

clockwise on the left tightens, tighter forces away. Counterclockwise on the left would allow it to come to the left.
