Question about Intex 4000 GPH Filter Pump

Pump will run for short period of time and then shut off

Upon investigation found that the impeller was simply plastic that in a years time is not much of an impeller as mine is completely broke at the center of the impeller and after just a short time running the outer part of the impeller is getting jammed inside their and causing the motor to overheat and shut off.

What would cause a circulator failure?

I am going to assume the circulator pump is on a hot water circulation loop. Turning the water back on could have stirred up the sediment that has collected in the bottom of the water heater. This could clog up and possibly ruin the impeller. Running for an extended period without circulating water can overheat and damage the pump also. It is a good idea to hook a hose to the water heater drain and flush out the sediment periodically. Hope this helps.

The circulation pump on my Fluval Spec V 5 gallon quit working. I bought the tank only three months ago. Any thoughts on why it conked out in such a short time?

did it "conk" out or is the pump impeller stopped by a buildup of material ?? the reason I say this its very unusual for a aquarium pump to go completely out (ive had one running 24/7 for ten years) but in that ten years ive replaced two impellors and cleaned it out over one hundred times , and yes three months is the perfect time period for a cleaning needed !!!

Hey there my name is Ben and i'm having some problems with my well pump. Its above ground single phase rated at 220 psi (max). I recently went outside to find it running but not pumping. Having had some...

hello diesel. You are on target. It could be that the foot valve has sand in it preventing it from closing thus pumping but no water. Pulling the well will most likely be necessary. Good luck with it. Joe

1hp magnum pump starts and runs but very little flow. then pump shuts down. checked for water supply and any blockage . none found in supply or return pump is about 8 or 10 years old

Sounds like a problem with the impeller, take off the lid, take out the pump basket and reach down and feel past the opening in the bottom, should feel a smooth and clean series of plastic blades, it is possible the blades a chewed up or its loaded up with hair.

Bissell 9300 will not spray liquid

I've got the 9300. Same problem occured during warranty period. They replaced the pump and it has worked fine since. The service person said never to put hot water in the tank (whish is what I was doing). If you put hot water in the tank, with the heater on, the water gets boiling hot and then the plastic impeller on the pump expands and the pump shaft simply spins and does not turn the impeller. Don't know if it is true or not, but his explanation sounded reasonable. Since then, I have used only lukewarm water in the tank and it still squirts fine (about 2 years). I also shut the heater off and squirt some fresh water in order to keep the pump cooler if I need to pause the cleaning for more than a few minutes. I took it apart one time to see what is inside. The pump is not real easy to get to. Good luck.

Sishwasher not used for months. Now motor only

Disassembled dishwasher. Some plastic scraps had shredded and wound itself around the pump impeller axis. It was preventing the motor from turning. Upon removal diswasher again worked fine.
