Turn off the electric first. Now split the pump in two by removing the large clamp or 4-6 bolts holding the two halves together. (not the 4 bolts holding the motor to seal plate, but the the bolts holding the seal plate to the seal plate housing). Once you remove the clamp or bolts, the motor with seal plate and impeller and diffuser can all be pulled back away from the pump. You need to remove the diffuser (plastic housing that goes around the impeller) usually by a series of 3 to 6 small screws. Then disconnect the electrical from the motor and your can pull the motor with the seal plate, and impeller all the way out and work on it. To remove the impeller you need to lock the motor and unscrew impeller. Depending on the motor, you remove a cap in the middle of the tailpiece and hold with a wrench, or remove a cap that covers the whole end and grab the shaft with a wrench (usually 7/16") by sliding it under one of the components (not sure exact part off top of my head have to look at it) and then turning impeller. If the impeller has a bolt or screw in the middle remove that first. It should be reverse thread so make sure you don't turn the wrong way and break or strip. If there is no screw, or after you've removed it, just spin the impeller off (it should be counter clockwise standard thread). If you can't do it by hand and assuming you don't have an impeller wrench, be very careful and use a large pliers, pipe wrench, or strap wrench to loosen it. After that you unbolt the motor from the seal plate, pull the seal plate away from motor (this removes half the seal), and then pop the other half of the seal from the seal plate. Make sure to replace the shaft seal, and use a tiny bit of pool lube on the rubber parts when installing, but keep the white and black ceramic surfaces 100% free of any dirt, grease, etc while working with them. Installation is pretty much just the reverse. Install half the seal into the seal plate. Install the seal plate onto motor and bolt into place. Install other half of seal onto shaft. Screw impeller onto shaft and install screw (if one was there to start with) in center of impeller (reverse thread). install diffuser over impeller make sure it is centered and doesn't rub the impeller hub. Install new diffuser and valute o-rings. Hookup wiring before re-attaching to rest of pump. Clamp or bolt back together. Pour plenty of water into pot to prime and flip the motor on for a sec or two. Pour some more water. Install pot lid. You should be good to go. Keep in mind there are many different pumps and some variations to the above instructions, but the above should cover most situations. if something doesn't sound right let me know by commenting on this post, or sending email and I'd be glad to clarify. Good Luck!

Will a yamaha 350 warrior cdi work on a yamaha 350 motot 4 they look exatly the same


I would call the dealer and have them check the part numbers. If the part numbers match then yes you can. Alot of the time the only difference is the connector. Yamaha has alot of interchangeable parts but the safest way is to verify the part numbers. If you just " try it " and they don't match you just may have fried the cdi box and you'll be trying to troubleshoot a bad part that you think is bad.

I had a goodman ARUF split system installed 8-25-09.Since then the heat exchanger blower motot replaced,cost $602.75,outdoor condenser unit fan motor to be replaced $592,00,recommend 5/8xing...


Hello, Usually it has to do with the quality of the install and the brand. If it was not installed properly from the beginning then the equipment will fail prematurely. As far as the heat exchanger goes I have replaced many heat exchangers on Goodmans after 3 years being installed, Goodmans are prone to bad heat exchangers.

Make sure the cartridge is firmly seated in its holder. It's possible that the carriage belt has broken or has slipped off the motot pulley. Look inside the printer and locate the flat toothed belt that pulls the carriage back and forth. follow it to either end and make sure that it isn't broken or slipped off the motor.
