My pump is running but not sucking up water

well if possible look into suction screen and see if Impeler is turning , I'll bet not , most of the lil giants come with a easy to remove pump cover (screw) so one can access the pump cavity to remove forign debris , also one can manually rotate impeller with finger (unplugged) to ck for free movement , if its hard to move your pump needs replacement

I have a submersible SPO 3-40A, when switched on i can hear a faint electrical hum,buzz but it doesn't do anything else. Any ideas? Thanks

Try to see if you can see the impeller by taking out the discharge tube,,if yiu can see it try turning it by hand too see that it is not locked up...if the impeller is not locked up then you will need to see if the pump motor has a start capacitor on it...if this capacitor goes bad the motor will not start turning and will hum then if enough time has passed the pump will blow the breaker

Pump turns on but the impeller does not turn. I can turn the pumpo on but until i make the impeller move it will not turn. It is straining trying to get the impeller to turn. Once the impeller is turning...

sounds like your problem is the centrifugal switch inside the motor housing or the start windings in the motor are bad. Not sure about your peticular pump but most submersibles are filled with mineral oil, take care to save it when you disassemble, it needs to go back in

My pump is humming but not pumping the water, what is the problem?

You are right, it is not running since there is no water
that goes out. It is just humming - which be due to
stucked impeller or busted starting capacitor. Let's start with checking up the impeller. Unscrew the strainer, and take it off. At the suction port, try turning the impeller by your finger. This is to check if it is stucked. If it is stucked, open the bolt holding the impeller case, so that you can free the impeller from
being stucked. Once the impeller is free, you can assemble the pump and switch it on and make it run.
If it doesn't run, then the final touch is to replace the
starting capacitor at the topcase of trash pump. In
doing this, make sure that in the reassembly of the top case, you must maintain the right force to close
the top case bolts water tight. Just send you e-mail
for further assistance. God Bless you.

I want to replace an impeller for a Little Giant submersible pump

This is a plastic impeller on a brass hub. If the impeller is loose it is probally cracked or overheated and melted, ether way you will have to break the impeller off of the hub then you will need to break hub loose from shaft. You can do this by putting pump in a vise and putting a pair of vice grips on hub and giveing them a sharp hit in a counter clockwise direction. you will need to replace the seal and impeller and should check to be sure than you can get these parts before you start.

Tsurumi submersible vancs series pond pump has

To get a new owner manual send them an email and they will email or send you one,

Is the pump was working fine for a long time before that happen?
if yes
There is a motor problem,
You can check your pump power cable try to find any damage or hole in it.
If the cable fine
And if the impeller and wheel still turn before triping the breaker It would be a good thing to check the amperage with a special electronic tool to see how much amperage the pump take,
if you are good in manipulating tool we can send you the breakdown or i can support you to open it and to check the motor trying to find any burn part in it. That way we will know right away if its worth to fix it.

let me know
