How do I remove the impeller C105-238P

Sta-Rite pump. Possibly deluxe version? If so, has a securing screw in impeller. This has backwards threads! Remove first, then secure shaft from spinning, use a flat blade screw driver, or 7/16" open end wrench. See pics below, remove back end cover from motor, to expose.

25467099-ljfmxq21ny5mtdwz0zq3xz55-4-2.jpg once shaft secured, un thread impeller, normal direction, counter clockwise. Remember, "Lefty loosey, Righty tighty". Good luck.

How do i remove impeller

Once you take off the front cover. You will see the impeller. Take of the rear cover and the shaft has a flat spot on it. You can hold it with a open ended wrench and spin off the impeller. It will be tight. There is no need to take it off unless it's broken.

There is a lock ring on inside of impeller inside cover you need to remove that lock ring in order to remove impeller.By just removing little cover exposing water impeller will not let you remove need to remove the whole side case to get to lock ring.On most bikes you have to drain oil,coolant and remove case cover.If you google this,it will give you exact instuctions or possibly a you tube vidieo.A picture is worth a thousand words.Good luck....

Dishwasher will not pump water out

The impeller of the pump-out pump siezes OR the impeller siezes because the water seals inhibit it from turning.
Problem well described in Owners Manual.
Yo may need to empty with a bucket initially.
Under the filter plates, there's a plastic access cover to the impeller.
You need to remove 1 Philips Head screw, the cover lifts off, and you can see the impeller, it is about 25mm (1") in diameter.
Remove any foreign material in or around the impeller.
Spin the impeller by hand.... it sometimes feels a little resistant, as though the seals on its shaft are gripping it.... this is OK.
Reassemble and try it out.

Good Luck

If your pool pump is acting sluggish it may simply be a build up of debris inside the impeller. Cleaning it is simple if you know how.
Step 1 - Check the Impeller

You can check the impeller for clogs by opening the clear cover that is on the strainer basket. Then place your garden hose into the basket and turn it on high. The water should disappear immediately. If it does not, you may have a clog.
Step 2 - Turn off the Power to the Pump

Before actually removing the clog from your pool pump impeller you will need to turn off the power to it. Remove the basket and use a finger to reach into the hole behind the basket to feel for any debris. If it is clogged, go to step 3.
Step 3 - Disconnect the Pump and Motor

Disconnect the pump and motor from the plumbing. Depending upon the make and model of your pool pump you may be able to skip this step. The motor usually just slides away from the pump.
Step 4 - Remove the Plastic Cover

Take the pump apart by removing the plastic cover over the motor. This cover generally has several small screws holding it on.
Step 5 - Remove and Clean the Impeller

Once the cover is removed you will easily be able to see the clog in the pool pump impeller. Just use your fingers or a coat hanger to clean it out.
Step 6 - Clean

Put everything back together. Once you have it cleaned out you can put the cover back on and put it all back together. Problem solved.

How do I remove the Impeller of my aquaflo flomaster pump? I have the pump open, and I loosened the 4 screws at the base of the motor so the volute spins freely, but the impeller isn't detaching. Bruce...

At the end you loosened the motor thru-bolts you should have a cap covering the motor shaft end. Remove it to find the end of the shaft. Depending on the motor brand and age you should have either a flatted surface for a wrench or a slot for a screwdriver to secure the shaft from turning. Turn the impeller off counter-clockwise. Some impellers are so stuck you can not free them holding the shaft end this way. Disassemble the rotor from the pump motor and lock the whole works in a vise to then get a better grip on the impeller. Impellers are often cracked from seal failure so do not be surprised if your impeller breaks up before coming off the shaft.

The replacement part number is the 8 digits you will find molded into the impeller plastic. For a quote on a replacement part(s) please contact us thru

We are having issues getting the impeller apart on the jacuzzi magnum force pool pump and need some instructions on how to proceed.

I believe the jacuzzi pump impeller has a locking screw directly in the middle of the impeller. You'll have to turn it clockwise to remove it. Then you'll need to remove the cover from the back of the motor using a 1/4" nut driver. Depending on the motor, you should be able to use a 7/16" open end wrench to hold the motor shaft from turning as you turn the impeller counter-clockwise to remove it. Some motors are different, some have a keyed shaft or require a special tool to hold the shaft while the impeller is removed. Hope this helps.

I have a diamond pump modlel # 560549 i am trying to take it apart but i cant seem to get the pump seperated from the motor.

Of course you can't get it separated especially if the pump housing is still intact. Please do this;
1. Open the screw or bolts holding the front pump
2. Now, you can see the rotating part of the pump,
that is the impeller, and the cover called the
3. Take the impeller cover off, and see if the impeller
is mounted and locked by a nut at the pump shaft.
Or, screwed to the pump.
4. Take the impeller off from the shaft by taking off
the nut or unscrewing it counter clockwise.
5. Take the mechanical seal at the back of the
impeller off from the shaft.
6. Now, you can separate the motor from the pump.
Hope this will help you.

The suction and water flow is greatly reduced

It's possible to wear out the impeller. To remove the impeller: after removing the motor and impeller from the housing, you remove the cover from the electric end. Carefully find a flat on the shaft that usually fits an open end wrench close to where the shaft goes into the motor. Not on the end of the shaft where the spring thing is. Hold the shaft with a wrench while turning the impeller, don't let the wrench break anything. Double check the threads on the new impeller to see if they are left-handed. The impeller should unscrew in the direction of the motor's rotation.
Put in a new seal while you're there.

Bosch dishwasher S10R1B: Water not pumped out

Normally it is the impeller which is stuck. Take out the dishes and the filters and empty it for water by hand. Yes it is a dirty job. Then at the bottom there is an opening in the steel where the water is collected. Empty this too. At the bottom left there is a torx20 screw that keeps the cover for the impeller. remove the cover and check that the impeller can move. The may be object stuck
You canalso force the safety mechanism in the door with a screwdriver and try to see if the impeller moves when it is supposed to empty water.
My problem is that I did all this but it still does not move. It may be the impeller motor which is broken. To replace that one is not easy.
