Inside the back case on the motor you'll see a white piece with two copper colored arms that have two silver points that almost touch. If these are rusty I've found that the motor won't turn over
. A quick fix is to take some 600+ grit Aluminum oxide sandpaper and give each of those contact points a brisk sanding to remove any oxidation. This will help the points make a positive contact . Make sure while very obvious that the motor is unplugged first.
If your pump has been leaking water it could be that rust has formed on the inside and is preventing the motor from operating properly. Which requires more aggressive dis-assembly to diagnose.
You can take it to a motor repair shop if the above listed doesn't work.

Waterway pool pump is humming but fan is not turning

Shorted motor windings, can you move the turbine when turned on or does it feel like it is being held in place. WARNING!!! do not try with your hand, use a tool. Possible capacitor, but I would suspect motor to turn slowly.

When I turn on my intex pump model # 633 all it does is hum. Pump is 1 year old.


what this indicate is that there is a gap between the pump and the filter

In this pump, or filter. There is an "air relief"(air gap ) on the top of the intex filter pumps and you must bleed the air by turning the knob on the top counter-clockwise just a little.

it is a filter gap problem.

what yo are to do to fix up this problem is to fix up the filter properly on it position that is remove the filter and then reposition it the problem of hum sound will be solve .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Filter hums when turned on will not kick on

Your motor is what is termed as "locked up" This is a term to describe either a motor armature which will not spin because of a mechanical or electrical problem. Electrical issues can sometimes be easy to fix.

If the start capacitor is bad, it simply needs replaced in order to fix your problem. Most all pool pumps have a Start capacitor located in a small metal *** attached to the motor. You will either need to have a capcitance tester to see if the capacitor is bad, or buy one and replace it if you have money to burn.

I say that because the problem causing the hum could also be due to a mechancical failure, and not so easy to fix. If the bearings in the motor are run down, seazed or damaged, the motor will just hum and not pump. same result ( humming motor)... different reason. Most electricians or air conditioning or mechanical service companies could test the motor and suggest which repair is needed.
