Question about Pool & Spa

Spa pump does not start up. Can hear hum and click but motor does not kick in. I can start it easily if I turn the shaft a little by hand then it takes right off and will run for hours.

Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is humming and has low flow?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool/Spa Pump Humming and No Flow If your Swimming Pool or Spa Pump Motor is humming and/or has very little or no water flow, please follow the following directions.
1) Remove the pump motor from the system.
2) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half.
3) Check for any foreign obstructions which would jam the Impeller and remove it
4) Next, inspect the Pump Motor Impeller itself. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged and requires replacement.
5) Next, remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged and need replacement.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts.

I have a magnum pump. when i turn it on. the pump hums and then clicks off like it has shorted out. but i still here it on. it will not pull water from pool


Pumps will **** all sorts of debris and many times the debris is small enough to get thru the strainer baskets and block the pump inlet. Turn the power off at the breaker, remove the strainer basket, and reach in with your fingers and check for debris in the pump inlet.
Clear all you can get out by hand, then on the outside of the pump motor, take the cap off the shaft, and turn it back and forth with a crescent wrench. Then put the basket and lid back on and turn the pump on.... you may need to clear it this way a few times to get it back up to speed, but that sounds exactly like what I've been dealing with at my wonderful pool that's right next to a 50 evergreen dropping needles 24-7 this time of year.... hope you clear it up ....let me know how it goes.

The polaris booster pump motor does not start. I hear it humming. I took the end cap off and turned the shaft without a problem. I took off the capacitor and tested it and it works. What should I check...


I my name is Juan and I was a pool repair tech in california and if your capacitor is good and your motor turns freedly with your hand then is time to replace your motor for a new one if you planing to do this make sure you replace the water seal is a good time to do it

Spa Motor Hums


if it is a used pump, these have a tendency to have a little rust. just get some pump pliers and rock the shaft gently back and forth. then plug it back in.

My polaris booster pump will not come on. when i turn it on the motor makes a humming noise but wont start


Does it have a century motor? If so, remove the shaft cover plate at the rear and try rotating the shaft with a very thick slotted screwdriver or substitute until it turns fairly easily. Often some mild oxide develops around components that just needs to be disturbed.

Motor hums then clicks off


Has the motor seemed a little slower in starting than usual? If so then you probably have a weak or defective motor capacitor. Try switching out with a new one.They are inexpensive.Try to turn the motor shaft at rear (under end cap) while it attempts to start. If the motor kicks on then replace capacitor.
