Also most pumps have a one way check valve that keeps the water at the pump level.. if I I worn out water will run away from the pump and it will get no water to push... on a big pump for the well it is called from foo valve and is located at the end of of line inside the well on a smaller pump it should be close to where the water enters th line... unless it is submersible which means the pump is under water.. also look to see if t filter is clear.

Hi there. Not necessarily. Inside the pump the impellor is plastic. Sometines the fins deteriorate to the point where the pump hums but won't move water. Other times the pump hums but won't actually run. The pump is generally fixable. If you are handy you can remove the pump and take it to any pump repair shop to be reconditioned, usually for about $50-75.

Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is humming and has low flow?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool/Spa Pump Humming and No Flow If your Swimming Pool or Spa Pump Motor is humming and/or has very little or no water flow, please follow the following directions.
1) Remove the pump motor from the system.
2) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half.
3) Check for any foreign obstructions which would jam the Impeller and remove it
4) Next, inspect the Pump Motor Impeller itself. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged and requires replacement.
5) Next, remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged and need replacement.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts.

My Mustang pool motor by Waterway musts-120 is just humming when it is turned on. It is connected to a timer, but the pump is working fine, just the motor is humming. What do I do? Is my motor toast?


Check your loacl yellow pages for an electric motor repair shop. They may find it is fixable but could at least tell you if it is salvagable or not. Some even carry replacement motors at costs lower than the pool stores.

if it is a used pump, these have a tendency to have a little rust. just get some pump pliers and rock the shaft gently back and forth. then plug it back in.
