Vacuum must leak air,won't pump water model# CW-PSC 30

  • Anonymous Feb 15, 2008

    The pump does not work.
    The water is getting heated. I disassembled the top, and noticed that some of the plastic has disintegrated. I can't figure out haow the pump mechanism works. Where does the hot water travel to get to the outlet? Can the top be replaced? At what cost? Is there anything else that could be causing this problem?

Seals but won't draw all the air out. Seals fine

That could be a bad foam seal not completing suction, A piece of debris that got sucked into vacuum line and or in pump, or in some cases a crack in a elbow or pump housing.

It looks that my filter has some air in it, how can I take it out?

In a properly plumbed pump/filter system, while the pump is running air can be introduced only through the suction side of the hydraulic system. (Water can cavitate within the pump, but this is not air, rather water vapor in bubbles. Once the pressure is reduced downstream of the pump turbine, cavitation will cease and the bubbles will return to liquid water. Nevertheless, pump cavitation is a serious problem that also needs to be avoided.) In other words, air gets in upstream of the pump. Downstream the water pressure would be to great to allow ambient air to enter the system -- rather water would leak out.

On the upstream side of the pump there are several places to look for air suction:

1. Most common, water level too low in pool, and air enters through skimmers. Most pool owners discover this on their own and correct the problem.
2. Less common, suction-side fitting or seal is not properly sealed. This could be at the pump basket housing seal, the pump drain seals, an upsteam valve, etc. If you have antifreeze ports, look closely at these fittings. Be sure to replace seals often. Teflon tape should be replaced every season. In many cases the only way to find a bad suction seal is by seeing air in the pump basket. In a properly sealed system you should not see any air in the pump basket after just a few minutes of starting the pump. If you see a pocket of air continue in the basket after a few minutes, you likely have an air source upstream of the pump. The effects of a leaking seal will be amplified if the skimmer line is blocked with debris either at the skimmer or in the lines. The pump continues to work hard to suck water into the system. If it can't get water, a leaking seal will be the source of vacuum release via the entrance of air through the bad seal.
3. Less common yet, a broken skimmer line from the skimmers to the pump, potentially underground. Obviously, this is in the most costly to repair.

Here's an example of what one might find. A pool owner has forgotten to replace the Teflon tape on his antifreeze ports for many years. Since these ports are opened and closed both at the beginning and end of each season, the tape has worn out and is no longer sealing the ports. He sees a large bubble of air collecting in the pump basket, and a stream of air bubbles in the return water stream going back into the pool. His fix? Remove the antifreeze port plugs, remove the old Teflon tape, replace with new Teflon tape, then replace the plugs.

My foodsaver model v-2440, after removing air ,it won"t change to seal .automaticly.can seal by hand .hope you can

This is typically a bad seal and the vacuum cant build enough pressure. You can usually dampen the black rubber seal with a sponge and water before you use the machine. this solves the problem most of the time

I have an oil leak from a drain hole in front of engine.what could be the problem?

If the oil plug bolt is leaking you need a new aluminum sealing washer. There are no oil weep holes in the front of the motor. Is it the weep hole under the water pump? You probably have a bad water pump seal or a bad oil seal on the water pump shaft. Buy a new water pump and the K&L water pump gasket kit. The K&L gasket kit comes with all the gaskets, seals, and washers necessary to do the water pump replacement for a fraction of the cost of the OEM Honda individual gaskets, seals, and washers.

I just bought a 91 mustang gt 5.0. The water pump is brand new but the seal is bad. To take it apart do i just need a new seal or does it have a gasket? and when i out it back together is there a certain...

Not a gasket but you may buy and replace the water pump seal for your 91 Ford Mustang GT. You may find the seal in any auto-part Web sites.

There's no certain way the timing belt goes on. You just have to make sure that the belt is tight enough so that you could be sure that the car would run properly.

But check the instructions below and it might help you make the task easier:

1. Begin when your car's engine and cooling system are both cool. Thefirst step is to drain all the oil out of your car's engine. Collectthe oil in a drain pan, so you can reuse it later.

2. Remove your car's fuel tankmag-glass_10x10.gif,so you can access the radiator if your engine is mounted in such a waythat the radiator is buried beneath the fuel tank. This is notnecessary for all vehicles.

3. Drain all the coolant out of your car and into a second drain pan.

4. Locate the pump seals and loosen them by hand or with a rod. Use ascrewdriver only if it's absolutely necessary, as you might scratch thesurfaces of your pump seals if you're not extremely careful.

5. Make a mental or written note of the direction each seal is facingbefore you remove it. You'll have to orient the replacement seals in anidentical fashion to ensure your water pump works correctly once you'refinished.

6. Remove the seals you want to replace and set them aside.

7. Align the replacement seals in an identical orientation to the oldones, referring to the note you made earlier. With most engines, thespring side of the inner water pump seal faces the engine, and thespring side of the outer water pump seal faces the impeller.

8. Protect the water pump seal springs from rust and corrosion bylubricating them with a little oil before you fasten them into place.

9. Refill your car's cooling system with coolant or antifreeze. It's fineto reuse the coolant you drained earlier if it still has some lifeleft. If not, be sure to dispose of it properly and in accordance withyour state's hazardous-waste guidelines.

10. Reattach your car's fuel tank if you had to remove it in order to access the water pump seals.

11. Refill your car with oil. Make sure that you have appropriate levels ofboth oil and coolant in your car before you drive it again.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

Brand new dishwasher installed and water leaks out bottom of door

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Main tub seal Note…If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath thecenter bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probablyapply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn'tserviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

Themain tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water inthe dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get tothe seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack

  • Spray arm

  • Spray arm support

  • Wash/drain impellers

Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Overtime, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to sealproperly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them ifthey've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve Thewater-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply linefrom the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the insideof the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these asnecessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open.When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher,which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to thedishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behindthe lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastichoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If thatdoesn't work, replace the hose.
