Sounds like a direct short in the motor windings. all I can recommend is taking the motor in the be tested.

My jacuzzi clicks like it is going to start but does not.


If you have the proper voltage into and out of the time clock, you may have a bad start/run capacitor. I would need to know if it hums and then trips the breakers and if the shaft is free to the point you can turn the impeller with your finger.

I HAVE A MAGNUM FORCE PUMP. iT WAS RUNNING THIS


It could be the capacitor again, but most likely if it stopped while running, its not that, unless you had a brief power failure. The motor may have a built in thermal overload which turned the pump off. If it only humms then it could either be locked up by something in the impller, or could be the bearings in the motor have failed. If the motor doesn't smell "burnt" then you might stand a change to disassemble the pump. Disassemble the motor and replace bearings. Replace the mechanical seal while you have it apart. OR you could buy a new motor, as it is 10 years old.

I have a jacuzzi magnum 1.5 HP pump. It turns on, moves some water well towards getting primed, then cuts off. Pump gets quite hot to the touch. Circuit breakers do not trip however. Had the capacitor...


Your motor is going bad if it get's that hot. It is kicking off when it get's hot enough to the heat switch in the back of the motor. This resets it self and the motor probally comes on again after a few minutes. The wireing in the motor has a small short that will get worse soon enough and may even catch fire if the conditions are right. So you should get a new one and replace your seal kit and "O" rings at the same time. Odds are a small water leak got this started. Good luck

Pool pumps are on a circuit breaker. There should be one nearby. Check the breaker first. If the switch is halfway on, it has been tripped. Turn the breaker all the way off firmly and then back on to reset.
Also there is a thermal breaker in the pump. Turn the breaker off and wait a few minutes. It should reset as well.
Also, if you get alot of debris in the leaf basket of your pump (mine is very tempermental because it's next to a small needled deadora tree...) Pull the leaf basket, with the pump and breaker off, reach into the inlet of the pump...it's below the basket and off to one side. Make sure it's clear of debris.
Then take the cap off the the electric motor end of your pump shaft. If it's jammed, take a crescent wrench and turn it back and forth until it frees up. Then double check the inlet again with your fingers.
If the pump still has electrical and it's not able to turn, you'll need to take the motor off the pump ...there are 6 bolts that you need to remove and then the motor with the impeller will come loose from the pump housing. There a 2 small allen screws to remove to take the impeller housing off. you can then clean all the debris out of the pump if needed.
IF there is not electrical to your pump motor, it may be that the motor has burned out, but check all the above first if there's still a hum in your motor when you turn it on....
Good luck on this and let us know if you need further help!

Pump does not turn on except for a humming sound and shuts off jumping the electric breaker


This could be anything from a stuck impeller to bad windings in motor. If you open the pump at the lock ring and remove the difusser from the impeller you can see if you can spin the impeller, If it won't move is it something holding the impeller up remove it. If notit is probally a bad bearing and you should replace the motor. If the Impeller turns try turning it on and caerfully try to spin before it kicks the breaker. If it is sort of stuck and does not want to turn the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. If it spins and won't start same thing, If it spins and starts it is probally a start capicator. Shut the power off at the breaker remove the back of the motor the capacitor will be a small black or silver cylinder with 2 or 3 wires clipped to it. Remove this and take it to a motor shop and get an exact duplicate. and that should fix it. When putting back together be sure to lube all "O"rings and refill with water. Hope this helps.

I have a Jacuzzi Magnum pool pump powered by an AO Smith Motor, 1hp, model #C48K2N117A9, serial #8599. Here's the problem. The control panel/timer, is on the wall next to the pump and I can hear it humming...


If the points in the timer are corroded the timer will run but will not put power to pump. If you have a volt meter you can ck this on the load side of the clock. If no power you just need to replace the clock. get all the info off the clock as you want the same brand for easy replacement but most brands have a virety of clocks that look the same and you want to be sure to get the right one. Mind wich wires are line and load since position changes from some old clocks to some of the newer ones. Be sure you shut the power off at the breaker before you start to replace anything.

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.

Do Magnum Force Pumps have a reset switch ?


No jacuzzi magnums do not have a reset button. First make sure breaker to pool is off, then remove rear motor cover, and take a look. Popping noise sounds like an arked wire. Could be a bad terminal or just aloose power wire. JACUZZI PUMPS ARE GOOD QUALITY, AND USSUALLY RUN FOR MANY YEARS. Pump can be removed for repaair, or motor replacemant by a qualified, and republe pool shop, for rebuilding Ussually rebuilding is about half the cost of new. Kirk
