    I am sorry but no one needs to be rude on here and I think my last expert was rude. I an opening my pool for the first time this year, yes late I know but I have been out of town on personal issues. Anyway, I opened up my pool, when to turn the filter pump on and it hums like it is going to start and then clicks and there is no noise at all. What could the problem be? Thank you in advance for your help

HI,
MOST COMMON IS LOW VOLTAGE. CHECK THE POWER AT THE MOTOR. MOST PUMPS RUN ON 220V IF ITS ONLY GOT 110 THAT'S WHY. CHECK THE POWER AT THE TIMER AND BREAKER ALSO USE A VOLT METER AND CHECK THE POWER AT THE MOTOR, BOTH LINES AND NOT TO GROUND.. AND THIS WAS Q WAS ASKED IN THE SUMMER. THESE NEED TO BE DATED ! 3/1/09 TA-DA ...CHECK THE VOLTAGE AT THE MOTOR.

    I am sorry, about asking the question twice, but I searched through the questions and couldn't find anything that matched my problem. Also, the pump ran fine last year and the years before that, why would there be a problem with the voltage now?

    Hi, when some thing like a pump wants to get or damaged, you can really tell where the fault will come from.

    You can check the wiring of the pump and also check the coil it might be too weak to start the pump.
    (or do a general troubleshoot on the pump).

Lock the shaft at the end where you electrical connections are made (disconnected of course!) and spin it off counterclockwise.
