Question about A.O. Smith SQ1102 Pool Pump Motor

2 Answers

It is leaking water between the motor and the impeller, I just installed it at the end of last season and it worked fine but when we opened our pool this week and turned it on, it started leaking. I tightened the bolts, but no help there. I just thought i would ask before i start tearing it apart.

Sounds like the seal is leaking, but in cold climates I'v seen the cases cracked from freezing. How much water is leaking and does the leaking get worse when the pump is running?

How to clean debris from impeller? Pump is not drawing water from the skimmer/pool .... I'm hoping the impeller is clogged and not something more serious like a shot motor.


There are normally 4 to 6 bolts around the outside connecting the wet end from the dry end. Undo those bolts and the front of pump should come away. Then you should be able to see impeller. Using a piece of wire poke it through each slot of the impeller to clear the blockage. Then put back together again. Remember to prime the pump

Pump is running but not pumping


Possible broken impeller from motors shaft, common Intex problem.
So...
As a technician of more than 30 years in the Pool/Spa Industry, And with the rise of these Quasi-Pool or Spa wannabe's, popping up everywhere, I have seen SOOOO Many frustrated customers and owners of these units, with very similar problems and non working pool and spas!
Unfortunately these Intex products are Mass Produced by the Gazillions in China, and then unleashed on the general American public? Who believe that it will work and last, but come to find that they usually don't last a season! Some die sooner, and yet some do last a little longer. AND, there are no available parts to repair! They make you buy a complete replacement control unit! So if your controller panel has a bad button, no available part, whole new control system! Heater stopped working? No available element to replace, whole new controller! Pump not pumping water or leaks - yep, No impeller or shaft seal available, Whole new pump, Etc. etc.
So many customers of mine, regret their purchase.
So...To try to help, and maybe get them back into a splashing good time or... Back in Hot Water..
I tell them ... SQUEAK! And do it loudly and often!
Maybe they will listen and OIL that Sqeak?
look here...

then if if budget allows, don't buy another Intex component, if you get no help from them, get a Real Pool Pump and if possible, mate it with a Real Pool Filter, not just toys.

Pool motor problem


If your pump is not moving water you first want to check the skimmer and pump baskets and make sure they are empty as not to restrict water flow. Next make sure your pool filter is clean. Once you have checked these, you may want to check the pump impeller. This is the part in the pump that is connected to the motor that moves the water. Impellers will clog from time to time, especially during the springtime. To inspect the impeller, you will need to open the pump, to see inside of the impeller housing or volute.

I have- starite pump it was working fine last night but this morning there was no pressure at all i wonder if is the water tank the pump is running fine but there is no water


It sounds like you have blown your shaft-seal. When this happens the pump runs dry. If you know that you have water but it will not pump, and all the cover and housing o-rings are good, it is the shaft seal. (unless the internal impeller is just broke, but this is unlikely)
Fix: Turn off power. Remove V-clamp holding wet end together. Remove diffuser inside wet end (need flathead screwdriver).
next remove rear electrical panel on the motor. Using s 7/16" wrend, hold the end of the motor shaft by the electrical end (where you removed the cover) while turning the impeller counter clockwise (note: some impellers have an impeller screw inside which unthreads CLOCKWISE) untill impeller is off. Replace carbon shaft seal inside. Reverse and prime and then restore power and start.

Water shooting out of the pump motor shaft?


The mechanical seel is bad. These seals normally last quit a few seasons, as long as they don't freeze or allowed to run dry. You will have to disasemble the motor from the pump, and then remove the impeller from the motor. Depending on model and brand, most of these parts are plastic and one must be very careful not to break. The seal could either be purchased from a pool company or from a place like Graingers. If you don't want to do it yourself you could take your pump to a pool company or a motor repair shop.

I have a Shasta pool from 1996. I replaced the


either you have an air leak somewhere on the suction side or your impeller is very clogged. you can fill the pump with water and turn it on, it should try to pick up prime, right when it starts to pull in some water turn it off and try to listen for air leaks or water squirting out somewhere on the suction side. Also, remove the pump basket and try to feel the impeller to see it there is any debris in it. the main cause for a clogged impeller is a cracked or broken pump basket. Also, if the pump has run dry for any period of time, the threaded fitting on the suction side of the pump can shrink and cause a large enough air leak to keep the pump from priming.
