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.

    Could a storm or possible lightning strike cause the capacitor to go out?

My rooftop air conditioner is making a humming noise, but will not blow out air. The fan will not kick on manually from the thermostat. The humming stops when I turn the thermostat to off.


check the capacitor of the fan motor may be it was bust u can see physical by the size bulge if u found damage. change it to new one with same rating then it will fix your humming problem.

2000 nissan altuma fuel problem


Listen for the fuel pump to kick on when you turn the key on(just to the on position you don't need to be turning it over) sounds like a humming or low buzzing sound. It will kick off when the system is pressurized. If you don't hear this your fuel pump is bad. You can go ahead then and check the fuel filter then the fuel pressure regulator. That should get you up to the injectors. All of these components are not serviceable and if you find one that is bad it should be replaced.

2001 mitsubishi diamante not turning over


Try turning the key on and listen for the fuel pump to kick on it'll be a hum coming from the fuel tank area. If you don't hear anything then its a bad fuel pump. If you do try turning the off and on several times leaving it in the position till the humming stops then turn it off and repeat a few times then crank it if it starts then the fuel pump is weak or a clogged fuel filter which isn't allowing enough fuel to pass thru to open the injectors.

My 1996 Automatic Diesel Toyota Townace truck went through high water at a rapid speed, made a humming/spinning/turning noise and stalled out. After a while is appears to want to start but will not kick...


1996 Automatic Diesel Toyota Town Ace, when hot meets cold that's what can happen. It may take a few days wait but check your filter and bearings. Fuel needs to flow to the filter and a seriously strong battery power is needed to kick it over. Idle it to let off smoke and clear exhaust. That should hopefully work.

Older Harman Kardon computer speakers have loud hum


The hum (50 or 60 Hz) is caused by the AC power getting into the entry point of the amplifier. Either the filtering capacitors from the powersource of the speakers have dried up - replace them - or there is a short in the cables.
There is another possibility: if you have kicked the subwoofer  box its transformer might have slipped from its fixings and now is touching the subwoofer speaker frame.
The only way to find which is to open the cases.

Air on heat pump not cool outside unit humming but not kicking on


This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck

Heat pump is humming loud>


When the heat is not on. Go to the T-stat and turn the fan to the on position. With the blower now running is it making the noise? If so you probably either have something in there such as the filter that was mentioned, a piece of paper etc. or one or more of the blades on the blower wheel is vibrating. Don't let the condition persist w/o having it checked out or you may turn a simple fix into a costly one.
