I think one of two things is going on ...

a) you spun the impeller. You say you have an air bubble in the strainer basket ... you probably also have air in the filter. When this condition exists ... and when you turn the motor off, the air, under pressure, wants out so it spins the motor in the reverse direction. If you turn the motor back on before the motor stops free turning backward, the the jolt spins the center out of the impeller. If you turn the motor off, you should always wait 15 seconds (maybe longer) before turning the motor back on. Listen to the motor. Also be mindful of the air in the filter, bleed it off when you find it ... seal the places where air can get in on the suction side.

The same thing can happen if you experience a quick power failure ... power off for a second and right back on. It is no-bodies fault ... just happens.

Remove the motor from the pump body. Remove the back cover on the motor. loosen the start capacitor so you can get a open end wrence on the flats of the armature. Remove the broken impeller with channel lock pliers or similar.

b) the start capacitor may have failed. To fix this, find the capacitor in the back of the motor. Replace with the same. Purchase from your pool supplier.

How do i clean and backwash my krystal clear saltwater system model cs8110 pool. Also it is very cloudy and I cant see the bottom of my pool


Hello... Is this your first pool? If so, do you have a local pool chemical supply company? They will test a sample of your pool water with way better equipment than the test strips... Than they will tell you exactly what you need and how to apply them... This is my 4th year with this salt system and 18'x 4' intex pool... Starting them up is tricky and it still takes me weeks to get it right... But the pool store told me how to start it up for next year so hopefully it won't take as long...
The phrase backwash referes to cleaning the filter... With the intex filter/pump system, that is the filter cargtridge that inserts into the pump/filter housing... Close the pool valves, open the filter cartridge housing, take the filter out and hose it down with a garden hose... Before you return the filter, dump out the nasty water sitting in the filer/pump housing... the Return the filter, screw back on the cap, open the pool valves and open the vent screw on top of the filter cartridge housing lid... This allows the pool water to flow back into the filter/pump and removes unwanted air pockets in the hoses... Once the water flows out of the vent screw, screw it back down to stop the water coming out... Now your down backwashing the filer...

Hope this helps,
Dan

Emerson 1081 pool pump makes buzzing noise when i turn it on wont start


Either something blocking the impeller / shaft, from turning or the motor failed.

You can try to manually assist the motor, by removing the small cap at the back of the motor, getting a flat blade screwdriver, and right when you flip the switch (get a helper) turn the shaft clockwise while it buzzes. If it takes off - possible Bad Capacitor? Try a couple times if it doesn't take.

if bad capacitor, make sure you get the exact replacement, or 'Slightly Greater' will work - and I refer to the MFD number. Don't go smaller!

My samsung top loader will only drain


Very easy repair. By dropping the hose gravity takes over allowing the water to run out. The buzzing noise is the propeller on your pump jammed.(Brawires,coins,hairpins) < common causes.. STEP 1:Drop hose down to remove water from machine STEP 2:Lean machine forward on a 45,rest machine on a chair. STEP 3:Bottom left of machine is a round black cap,remove the cap(turn anti clockwise) STEP 4: Put your fingers in the pump and pull out the coins,hairpins etc from pump. STEP 5:Turn propeller to make sure it turns freely,put the round cap back on then your done. Thanks

The machine moves but the fan does not turn, the motor is humming


Occasionally hair or linen may get caught in the impeller. If that happens, take the top grill off by removing the 2 screws from the top. Make sure that the transformer is unplugged. Remove the debris. Replace the top grill and tighten the 2 screws. This is most likely what is causing the trouble with this automatic pool cleaner.
