After draining a spa it is common to get an air lock in the plumbing. Depending on the manufacturer or plumbing configuration will determine the easiest way to accomplish this. The concept is the same, help the water to start moving. Either relieve the air down low, i usually loosen the pump drain plug until water sprays out or force water through the plumbing in the natural direction of water flow. Those little 24 hour circulation pumps are usually the biggest culprit for this problem.

Hayward flo pump motor repair


What exactly is wrong with your pool pump? If it won't start at all, check for improper or loose connections, blown fuses or tripped breakers, and open your switches and replays. Manually check the rotation of your motor shaft. Make sure that there is free movement and no obstructions. If the motor hums, but won't start, check for obstructions and check the Centrifugal switch to see if it is stuck in the open position. If you have low flow, check pool pumps for clogged or restricted strainer/suction line and discharge line of filter. You could also have an air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return fittings). Low voltage could cause loss of suction. Check for plugged or restricted impeller.

My dreammaker spa has power and lights but the pump won,t turn on.it makes a sound for a few seconds like it is trying to turn over then it stops.it was recently running .


Sounds like the pump is jammed or the motor bearings are frozen. If you can take it apart, try the pump first. The bearings on modern motors are pretty reliable. Get everything cleaned and lubed and put it back together. Good luck...Lee
