Reverse direction of electric motor


If your motor runs backwards, you wired the motor backwards. Change your wires around and it will run the correct way.

Our centurion pool pump motor Model B128 replaced less than 1 year ago. Pool company has to replace the impeller twice. Is this common? I believe the pool co sold and installed a used pump instead


Broken impellers generally are not caused by the pump's motor. Impellers usually fail due to back pressure from the filter when the pump shuts off. Air in the filter is compressed while the motor runs, on your pump 12-15 psi. or a bit higher.

When the motor shuts off that compressed air forces water back to the pump, sometimes with enough force to loosen (or completely throw off) the impeller. If the impeller is loose when the pump starts up again it will instantly re-thread the impeller and strip out the threads.

Check to see if you have a suction leak. After the pump has turned on, bleed the air out from the air relief valve on top of the filter. After the pump has run for a while open the air relief valve and see if air comes out. There should be no air, or just a little.

I have seen this back pressure strong enough to blow the skimmer basket up onto the deck.

What make and model of pump and filter do you have?

Have a hayward 1.5hp motor. plastic impeller broke off and is not spinning, how do i replace.


YOU WILL NEED A NEW IMPELLER SPX3010C SUPER HAS 4 BOLTS OR A SPX261OC SUPER 2 HAS 6 BOLTS. JUST TAKE THESE BOLTS OUT AND THE IMPELLER SCREWS OFF TO THE LEFT, CLEAN UP THE TREADS. USE A NEW 201 SHAFT SEAL. AND ON THE MOTOR PICTURED THE SHAFT CAN BE HELD AT THE BACK OF THE MOTOR TO SCREW ON THE NEW IMPELLER.. PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER ,PRIME THE PUMP WITH ABOUT 4 GALLONS OF WATER. RUN IT AND WATCH FOR LEAKS .. NO LEAKS ? YOU GOOD TO GO ! ..

My Hayward just hums when I turn it on and after a few seconds the breaker pops.


You will need to disassemble the pump and check the impeller. remove any debris and try turning the impeller by hand. If it does not move or is dragging, you will need to overhaul the pump. Possibly a shaft seal leak has damaged the motor bearing(s). Replace the shaft seal and motor bearings. If the motor is badly deteriorated, you might need to replace the motor. Note... the impeller turns counterclockwise to loosen. you may need special tools to grip and hold the motor shaft and the impeller to prevent damage to the impeller. If the impeller is seized on the shaft from rust, you may have to break it to get it off. reassemble with teflon lubricant on the shaft threads when reinstalling the impeller. This will prevent seizure later.

Hi, Wayne PC4 pump doesn't work. Can anyone help me?


Hello,
The most common issue with these pumps is that the impeller gets stuck from non usage or from debris getting stuck in the impeller.
Take the cover off of the pump section and make sure that the impeller is free of debris and that it will turn freely. If it turns hard you may be able to free it by working it back and forth. This may take some time to do. I'm not sure about this particular pump, but on some you can get a lubricant like WD-40 worked into the pump and motor bearing also...
If the impeller is spinning frreely and the motor still does not turn on then you have a bad motor. To replace this motor will probably cost nearly the price of a new pump. It may be better to just replace the whole pump.

Leak between seal plate and pump/strainer housing


The pump seal is leaking and needs replacing and requires removing four 3/8 bolts (9/16) wrench and removing the motor then the diffuser to get to the impeller and seal . A 7/16 wrench holds the rear motor shaft behind the springs and impeller spins off to reveal the seal which has two parts one on the impeller with a spring and one in the seal plate is white ceramic/ porcelan whatever they use. Part number is an SPX1600KA on super pumps and 1500KA wassome above grounds. When replacing do not touch the mating white and black surfaces with your fingers.

Lg dishwasher lds 5811st E1 error code


Hi Chaz,

The impeller breaks on the motor shaft. The motor still turns, but the impeller doesn't, so it doesn't pump water. Because the machine senses there is no water pressure from the pump, it shuts down & displays E1 (it thinks there's a water leak, due to no pressure)
Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly

Hope this helps
