Just pay attention how you take it apart and make sure you put he new bearing in straight, you may need a bearing puller, and also maybe a vise to work out of

My booster pump is much louder than last year. Can you oil it somehow


PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO OIL THIS, IT HAS A START SWITCH INSIDE THE MOTOR, IF IT GETS OIL ON IT IT WILL NOT ALLOW THE MOTOR TO START. AND CAN CAUSE THE MOTOR TO FAIL.
SEARCH YOUR AREA FOR YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP REPAIR GUY, COST AROUND 125.00 TO REBUILD ONE OF THESE MOTORS. USE UTMOST CARE WHEN REMOVING WIRES FROM THE BACK OF THE MOTOR !

My pump has a high pitched whine. Are there likely bearings out?


Yes...as the motor bearings wear they will get louder and louder. A common cause for bearing failure is a leaking seal. If you have any signs of a water leak or if the pump seal is more than a few years old you'll want to replace that when you get the bearings.

If you are handy and understand bearing replacement you can get the parts for less than $20. If not, a typical repair at an electric motor repair shop for something like this is ~$80 if all it needs is bearings to get it going again.

Why is my polaris 280 booster pump is revving much faster than usual?


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

The booster pump can not turn any faster than its nameplate speed. If you think it is revving up, it is probably because it is running louder and/or rougher than normal. The pump seal and/or bearings are becoming worn and will need servicing. A local electric motor repair shop should have the parts for you to buy or they could repair it for you. Often times a gasket will need to be replaced as well but all told the repair should be ~$100 or so.

Once the booster pump (for polaris 280) is turned on, water starts to leak badly from the front.


There is a bad seal and/or gasket in the pump allowing it to leak. It is usally the seal. Take it to a local electric motor or pump shop and the repair is probably under $50 total. You could also buy the parts to try it yourself, but the seal that pump takes (AS-1000) is a little tricky to seat properly. Besides, if your bearings are also damaged, the shop could fix that as well.

My pb4 booster pump is leaking from the booster pump bracket and making a ''whining'' noise when turned on????


Replacing the pumps mechanical seal should fix the leak. The whinning may be from bearing damage due to the leak. If you are unsure how to fix it, try a local electric motor repair shop. We charge about $55 - $60 for that seal and bearings installed.
