Hello,

what this indicate is that there is a gap between the pump and the filter

In this pump, or filter. There is an "air relief"(air gap ) on the top of the intex filter pumps and you must bleed the air by turning the knob on the top counter-clockwise just a little.

it is a filter gap problem.

what yo are to do to fix up this problem is to fix up the filter properly on it position that is remove the filter and then reposition it the problem of hum sound will be solve .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

This sand filter and pump is 1 season old, when I turn on pump it makes a humming noise and will trip the reset. Is the motor no good or is there something I can check.


this might be a case of pump was not stored correctly from 1st season , now pump shaft has become dry and tight , well if your handy with a phillips head you could try and dissasembe pump and lube shaft with waterproof grease ( kitchen faucet parts in hardware store)
i allways store my pump filled with food grade antifreeze (rv grade) and hoses capped off and pointed up , it stays all winter inside an unheated shed with no problems for two swiming seasons now

Krystal clear model 633 hums but impeller does noy spin


Starter winding or cap or switch has failed. Unplug. Look for broken/loose wires or burned components, if you can't find anything you will have to replace the motor. If that is not possible, replace the entire unit.

Intex sand filter motor will not run


Opening the little drain plug at the bottom should relieve the pressure and make it easier to turn the basket lid. Is there water to the top of the basket? I had to loosen the clear top of the basket to bleed the air out. If you open the drain where you backwash, will water flow out? It should. Mine flowed out even without the motor running if I remember correctly. If it does not, my guess would be some kind of obstruction.

Intex 633 lost suction


I have seen a common problem when customers change / clean their filter is that put the DRY clean filter in the skimmer box or filter holder and sometimes it can cause an "air lock"
Just take your garden hose put in the intake outlet of your pool and turn that baby on....If you start seeing air bubbles on the discharge end of the line most likely that was your trouble.
If the problem still persist then at that time look into pump repair / replacement.
Good Luck!

Which tube takes water from pool to pump and which tube puts water back in on the model 633


The outlet from the skimmer goes to the pump inlet (center) the pump outlet goes to the filter inlet. The filter inlet goes to the return to the pool.

Water flow seems to restricted and the hose caves in


I FOUND ON MY INTEX POOL WHEN HAVING THE SAME TROUBLE IT HAD BLOCKAGE BETWEEN THE 1 1/4 HOSE ADAPTER ON THE INLET SIDE OF THE CONNECTION SUPPLYING THE PUMP AND THE BLUE FILTER SCREEN BEFORE THE OUTLET VALVE. MIGHT BE WORTH CHECKING THERE AS THE STRAINER BASKET WILL NOT CATCH ALL THE FINE DEBRIS. TAKE YOUR OUTLET HOSE OFF AND OPEN THE VALVE AND SEE IF IT IS RETRICTED.

Pool pump intex 51 pumps water but return flow is low


if you cartridge is completly clean then start by disconecting the out tube that goes to the pump housing
sometimes debris gets caught there entering your pump.
a little hair causes other things to back up

once you are satisfird that those 2 things are ready then close it all up and open the bleeder cap on top of the cartridge holder

Now let water in from the suction side
when water starts coming out of the bleeder cap then open the return side
Now turn on the puimp
let it run for 20 seconds and then close your bleeder

Should be working fine after that.

dont forget to leave the bleeder cap alone on the bottom of the canister unless you are draining the water from the canister to clean it. As soon as you are done close it back up
