If there is a capacitor on it, you could replace that. If there is no capacitor the starting switch is probably broken. If you are not used to working with electricity, either have someone qualified work on it or...BE CAREFUL!..God luck...Lee

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.

Pentair dynamo 340210 was running fine, cleaned out skimmer basket turned it back on and all it does is hum. The impeller is not clogged and turns fine by hand. Any solutions?


you have probably hit a dead spot on the motor - try turning the motor by hand and then turn it on - maybe it will kick it.
dangerous to do it while the power is on but some people have had luck doing the same thing while the power is turned on.

I purchased a new 3/4hp Emerson pool pump installed it and the only thing it will do is hum.


OUT THE BACK SIDE OF THE MOTOR IS A SLOT IN THE SHAFT FOR A SCREWDRIVER , SEE IF YOU CAN TURN THE MOTOR OVER(BREAKER OFF !) YOU MAY HAVE BOUND THE IMPELLER OR IT COULD BE SET FOR 230 VOLTS AND YOU ARE RUNNING IT ON 115VOLT.....
IT MAY HAVE A BAD START CAP OR THE SWITCH MIGHT NEED CLEANING. THESE EMERSON MOTORS CAN BE HARD TO WORK ON DO TO THE HUGE AMOUNT OF PLASTIC PARTS

Dynamo pump is locked--just hums


Try turning the motor from the back. Remove the end cover and turn the shaft. If it still hums the motor will need to be replaced.
