SOURCE: Motor humming but not engaging

The pump needs to be primed by adding water to the basket.If it still doesnt start it might need the a rebuild which usually involves replacing the bearings(cost about $150.00 NJ area).

Water was sucking into engine. Pull spark plug, drain oil, air filter. Replace new oil, new air filter, clean and dry plug. Before putting in spark plug turn motor over to blow out cylinder. Dry everything electronic, should dry just by sitting, then start up. If battery lost charge, recharge it.

SOURCE: i have aquashift st 2000

If you look at the pump cabilities the max life is either 2.3 or 2.4 meters. I.e 7.88 Feet max lift. I looked up even the 5000 Liter per hour pump and it only has a lift of 2 meters. 10 feet is 3.048 meters. It seems your height requirement lift of 10 fee is greater than the lift capability of the pump. You can... install a second pump with a hidden reservoir at the 5 ft lift mark behind the water fall to get the desired flow. Or change to a submersible 1/2 hp well pump as most will give you 10 to 12 GPM flow rate and will elimate the 10 ft lift problem. A shallow well pump could be installed above the water (encased / hidden and provide you with 23 feet of lift.

The problem you have is the 10 ft lift distance is more than your current pump can provide.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unplug and try freeing up the impeller by hand. You may have to remove bottom of pump to gain access.

My Little Giant OPWG-71 after six months of trouble free use has stopped pumping my pond. It comes on, with no obstructions allows water to be pushed through it but won't pump. And yes even when


Hi don-eyre300.
Double check your suction side of the pump for obstructions if not then it is time to replace your pump...sounds like the impeller and housing is worn beyond repair.

Waterfall pump hums but won't pump


this sure sounds if the impeller is blocked and not being able to turn ,Dont let it run this way , can dammage motor of pump , remove intake cover (unplugged) and wash out with garden hose real well , see if impeller (black plastic blade) can turn with your finger (unplugged) , should move easy ! this might be an indacation of need for a filter on pump inlet !!!

Problems priming little giant pw-95 pump


since this is a waterfall pump , id try using a short piece of dish hose and see how it flows water then , if it works there then id say your demand to lift is too great and a larger pump will be needed to lift that high ,

also note on waterfalls id leave out the ck valve on dish pipe , i know it takes longer to reprime itself each time , but that reverse flow action cleans your intake screen each time it shuts off

I cleaned the screen, and the impeller is working however the little giant pump WGP is still not pumping water.


You may need to take the bottom of the pump apart and check to see if any thing has gotten through the screen and clogged the impeller.

Little Giant stopped working; makes hum noise but wont push wate


Can you take it out of where it is and clean it with vinegar? There may be calcium built up in it. I have one also on my aquarium and when I turn it off sometimes it won't start back up, just humms.. That tells me it's time to clean it.
