Didnt specify make model size or anything about the pump-generic answer--im assuming now means not working --most pumps buzzing or humming would mean jammed -bearing locked -or seized--you will need to disconnect power and gain access to the pump when you do try to turn impeller if frozen will need to examine if pump or motor is stuck try lubing all bearings and try moving unit back or forth to free unit --

Aqua pro 500 is flashing lp. We just had a new pump installed and are just trying to get pool warmed up. Pump worked fine last season. Any suggestions?thank you

LP: This code means "Low Pressure" or low pressure switch. Either the outside ambient temperature is below 50°F (38°F
for h/c units), which is too low for the heater to operate, or the unit is low on refrigerant. Once the outside temperature has risen above 60?F, and the LP code remains, call the factory for repair.

Emerson 1081 pool pump makes buzzing noise when i turn it on wont start

Either something blocking the impeller / shaft, from turning or the motor failed.

You can try to manually assist the motor, by removing the small cap at the back of the motor, getting a flat blade screwdriver, and right when you flip the switch (get a helper) turn the shaft clockwise while it buzzes. If it takes off - possible Bad Capacitor? Try a couple times if it doesn't take.

if bad capacitor, make sure you get the exact replacement, or 'Slightly Greater' will work - and I refer to the MFD number. Don't go smaller!

Pool pump was on had a storm electric went out.

Pull the lid and strainer basket off your pump and reach in (electricity will be off at this point) and make sure that the pump inlet isn't blocked with debris from the storm... small stuff can get thru the strainer and jam up the pump motor... I know...i've got the pool from hell ...constantly jamming the pump...but it's next to a huge evergreen tree...

after you get the debris out, take a crescent wrench and remove the cap off the motor shaft on the outside of the pump. Turn that shaft with a wrench back and forth to free up the motor and dislodge the debris... if it frees up, put it all back together and turn the power may have to repeat this process a coupe of times to completely clean the impellers in the pump.... good luck!

Your pump will have to be either rebuilt or replaced. Look in your local yellow pages under pump repair.
