If you replaced the cap and their is nothing wrong with the impeller (check to see if it turns OK by hand) Then I'm sorry to say your motor is probally burnt out.

Cambell Hausfeld model wl506201aj compressor Hums when switched on


This could be caused by one of two things:
- a stuck or broke tank check valve. This would be evident if the compressor starts up when there is no pressure in the tanks but only hums when the tank pressure is up. Some valves can be cleaned and will work for a while but they usually have to be replaced.
- motor start capacitor. If the capacitor is bad it won't get the motor spinning, with or without pressure in the tanks. You can test it by taking the shroud off the pump and carefully bumping the motor to get it turning. Be careful, it may run up to full speed right away. If it runs replace the capacitor, if not you may have a burnt or shorted motor.

When I turned my pump off to backwash and then turned it back on it made a humming noise then stopped running. Now it is doing nothing. what could the problem be?


sounds like a bad start capacitor, or there is something (rock, sand, or some debris) caught in the impeller.

The start capacitor not working will cause your motor to hum, then it will overheat and trip the high limit. It won't attempt to come back on until it has cooled. It's a common problem.

try clearing the impeller first, if that doesn't work and the motor shaft spins freely, then it's a capacitor.

Makes electrical humming noise but does not pump water


This is could be the capacitor that has failed. The capacitor gives the motor the initial kick in the right direction to get it started. You can confirm it is a failed capacitor and that the motor is still ok by flicking the fan blades with a stick in the direction it should spin just as you switch the pump on. The pump should run normally. You can get them off Amazon or ebay for around 5 Pounds (GBP)

Usually when a polaris booster pump hums it means 1 of 2 things; either the starting capacitor needs to be replaced (its located under the black hump on top of the motor) or the pump is bad. Most likely the starting capacitor needs to be replaces. This is where you should start since the capcitor is only $20-$30. Get a new capacitor from a local pool store, shut the power off to the motor, remove two screws on each side of black hump on top of motor, remove two wires from starting capacitor and install wires on new capacitor, replace cover and turn the pump on. If that doesn't work you will need to replace the motor.

When I press the start button on my Kenmore Dryer Model #96291100 I hear the motor humming and the timer clicking but it's not turning on. The belt is good


you have a problem with a part called a capacitor,which holds an electric charge to start the motor when,when it's faulty,the motor cannot start,hence the humming noise.it must be replaced,only by a qualified repairman.

Motor hums then clicks off


Has the motor seemed a little slower in starting than usual? If so then you probably have a weak or defective motor capacitor. Try switching out with a new one.They are inexpensive.Try to turn the motor shaft at rear (under end cap) while it attempts to start. If the motor kicks on then replace capacitor.
