Question about AO Smith Pool Pump Motor Hayward Swimming Pool Pump Full Rated Motor / Cen

1 Answer

Hi, I have an AO Smith 3/4 HP Pool and Spa motor that has stopped working. I'm reasonably handy and would like to fix it if possible. When the problem began, it would make a loud noise and pause before it started. Sometimes it would just make the noise and not start- then start later. It finally just made the noise but would not start. The shaft turns without a problem. From my research it looks like I need to replace the bearings. Can anyone confirm this and point me to instructions, preferably with pics or movies?

YOU CAN BUY A POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR KIT ON EBAY. IT COMES WITH INSTUCTIONS. YOU ALSO MAY NEED A CAPACITOR.. AND YOU WILL NEED A SHAFT SEAL.. IT HELPS WHE YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF PUMP YOU HAVE. THAT MOTOR YOU HAVE FITS ABOUT A 100 OR MORE KINDS .. OR YOU CAN FIND YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY USE YOUR ZIP CODE IN YOUR SEARCH ... HAVE HIM FIX IT, THESE CAN BE TRICKY.. COST SHOULD BE AROUND 75.00 TO FIX YOUR PUMP MOTOR WITH THE SHAFT SEAL AND HOW TO REINSTALL IT AND TAKE CARE OF IT.. ITS WELL WORTH IT.
OVER THE YEARS THIS KNOWLAGE CAN SAVE YOU HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ! AND YES THE SATISFACTION WILL STILL BE THERE THAT YOU DID FIX IT.

THESE MOTORS CAN LAST YOU A LIFETIME IF YOU TAKE CARE OF IT, WATCH FOR THE WET SPOT AND EVERY FEW YEARS HAVE IT IN FOR A TUNE-UP

Where I can buy the A.O Smith 3/4 HP pool pump impeller?


You'll need information from the pump that the AOSmith electric motor is attached to in order to get an impeller or any other pump parts. If there is no nameplate for the pump are there numbers on the impeller you need?
