Sounds like something jamed in the impeller. But you should first check the motor to see if it is fried (expensive fix).

To test a motor first turn off the breaker and test with a voltmeter that it really is off. Pull the leads off the motor (note which lead goes where first or your screwed). Do a continuity test across the terminals. One should be the common and all other coils should have continuity to that terminal. If you have continuity you will read a reasonable amount of electrical resistance in Ohms. If you read infinite resistance then the coil is broke and you need a new motor.

If you pull anything apart make sure that you test it for leaks before use.

I have a new Jacuzzi air tub and was ready to install. When I plug in the motor, there is a humming noise. What is this?


When you turn on the motor and if it just hums when you turn it on then the motor sounds bad.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on


In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Dryer only hums when turned on. The drum does not rotate, but the belt is intact.


Hi there. Sounds like it is a dead motor. Check it by measuring the terminals on the motor when you hear the humming sound. If it reads 110VAC on the meter the motor is dead or seized. Might also be the drum that is jammed. Check the drum holes for a screw or something that locks it?

Grinder blocked


if you hear it trying to grind, but is not, or hear it spinning and is not grinding, more than likely it is blocked, or so oily that bean will not drop. Coffee beans, have so much oils in them, that after a while it gets caked up, and beans either get jammed, or stuck. If you hear grinder low humming, then it is probably stuck or clogged, if it is on but hear like a spinning sound, beans are not dropping, because they are stuck because of oil build up. If you can get to the grinder, turn machine off, unplug, get all beans out, if turning up side down to do so, get clean dry terry cloth,and start wiping and cleaning, when you feel your done, spray a LITTLE, no much pam in there, refill and try again. As said early if it is a low humming, like motor turning but jammed, do not use until jam is fixed, you will burn up motor, then have more expensive fix. Let me know if this helped and solved problem. Mr Bean Man from Fixya

Jacuzzi pump not pumping


I would probably say that the pump is clogged up or frozen. The motor humms until the heat sensor clicks it off. Try taking apart the front of pump and see if it turns and you should see the problem. Parts are available at most pool stores. Pumps are usually cheaper online.

Pump does not turn on except for a humming sound and shuts off jumping the electric breaker


This could be anything from a stuck impeller to bad windings in motor. If you open the pump at the lock ring and remove the difusser from the impeller you can see if you can spin the impeller, If it won't move is it something holding the impeller up remove it. If notit is probally a bad bearing and you should replace the motor. If the Impeller turns try turning it on and caerfully try to spin before it kicks the breaker. If it is sort of stuck and does not want to turn the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. If it spins and won't start same thing, If it spins and starts it is probally a start capicator. Shut the power off at the breaker remove the back of the motor the capacitor will be a small black or silver cylinder with 2 or 3 wires clipped to it. Remove this and take it to a motor shop and get an exact duplicate. and that should fix it. When putting back together be sure to lube all "O"rings and refill with water. Hope this helps.
