    I've post you a problem with my jacussi magnum 1500 pool pump that wasn't working when I came home tonight.

    To smartr10U:

    You've answer me (thanks) and when I took the cap off some of the electric wired going to the switch were dry out and one of them was broken. I've replace them and the 1995 Magnum jacuzzi is working again.

    I live in Québec City and this thing is still working after many outdoor summer.

    Merci!

Pool pumps are on a circuit breaker. There should be one nearby. Check the breaker first. If the switch is halfway on, it has been tripped. Turn the breaker all the way off firmly and then back on to reset.
Also there is a thermal breaker in the pump. Turn the breaker off and wait a few minutes. It should reset as well.
Also, if you get alot of debris in the leaf basket of your pump (mine is very tempermental because it's next to a small needled deadora tree...) Pull the leaf basket, with the pump and breaker off, reach into the inlet of the pump...it's below the basket and off to one side. Make sure it's clear of debris.
Then take the cap off the the electric motor end of your pump shaft. If it's jammed, take a crescent wrench and turn it back and forth until it frees up. Then double check the inlet again with your fingers.
If the pump still has electrical and it's not able to turn, you'll need to take the motor off the pump ...there are 6 bolts that you need to remove and then the motor with the impeller will come loose from the pump housing. There a 2 small allen screws to remove to take the impeller housing off. you can then clean all the debris out of the pump if needed.
IF there is not electrical to your pump motor, it may be that the motor has burned out, but check all the above first if there's still a hum in your motor when you turn it on....
Good luck on this and let us know if you need further help!

I HAVE A MAGNUM FORCE PUMP. iT WAS RUNNING THIS


It could be the capacitor again, but most likely if it stopped while running, its not that, unless you had a brief power failure. The motor may have a built in thermal overload which turned the pump off. If it only humms then it could either be locked up by something in the impller, or could be the bearings in the motor have failed. If the motor doesn't smell "burnt" then you might stand a change to disassemble the pump. Disassemble the motor and replace bearings. Replace the mechanical seal while you have it apart. OR you could buy a new motor, as it is 10 years old.

Which valve do I use on the Jacuzzi Magnum 1500 to drain lines


There two plugs on your pump, one one the side of the pot at the bottom and one dead center of the pump housing on the front. this will only drain your pump if you live in cold country and are winterizing you will need to drain all your equiptment filter, heater and any thing else. then you need to drain your pipes and seal them at poolside to keep the water out.

Loosen the motor and impeller from the pump by backing off the large plastic nut and take that whole section to an electric motor repair shop for inspection. If the motor is salvagable, they can quote the repair or replacement.

Jacuzzi Magnum Force Pump not working


The number one problem is air leaks.......check all connections to see that they are tight, and rubber seals. The intake side would give you trouble with air leaks. If you dont find any leaks then I would pull the pump cover and check the impellor. Pool stores have parts and lots of knowledge.

I have a jacuzzi magnum 1500 pool pump which leaks. I changed the O-ring and it still leaks. If I have to change the seal on it, how do I change it. I tried undoing everything on this pump. Thanks!


You need a 201 seal for the pump. Most electric motor shops that work on pumps and of course pool store carry these. If you are unfamiliar with how to change the seal, the charges to have it done are usually low. We charge $15 - $30 depending on how much of the pump is brought in and therefore remains to be taken apart to replace the seal. The seal is about a $5 item.

If trying yourself, you will need to completely disassemble the pump, lock the motor shaft at the rear of the unit, spin off the impeller, and replace both halfs of the seal.

Magnum Force Jacuzzi Pump stopped working


No serviced by pool technician. But you can look in your breaker box for a popped breaker, it should be 20 amp and be positioned in the middle instead of on or off position. Kirk
