SOURCE: 1 HP StaRite Pump 15" inout Center Discharge 240V wHair Lint Pot: Impellers on pump wont turn. Motor not running...

what happens is the pump gets staved for water and this damages the shaft seal, water slowly over time leaks into the motor and pollutes the grease int the bearing and causes it to fail. it's fairly easy fix, just have the motor rebuilt by your local pool pump motor repair guy for about 75.00 and your back up and running. beats paying 200.00 or more for a new motor.
the sta rite is the top of the line pump, i have had them in my shop over 40 years old ! ask your motor repair guy how to get the most life out of your pump. knowledge is king .. remember to prime the pump after any pump repair !! .. jay longwood florida

When i turn the switch on the pump buzzes and wont start , then trips the breaker . Help .


Either the pump is seized or the motor start capacitor is open or blown. If you can spin the impeller with your finger it is most likely a start capacitor problem.

I have- starite pump it was working fine last night but this morning there was no pressure at all i wonder if is the water tank the pump is running fine but there is no water


It sounds like you have blown your shaft-seal. When this happens the pump runs dry. If you know that you have water but it will not pump, and all the cover and housing o-rings are good, it is the shaft seal. (unless the internal impeller is just broke, but this is unlikely)
Fix: Turn off power. Remove V-clamp holding wet end together. Remove diffuser inside wet end (need flathead screwdriver).
next remove rear electrical panel on the motor. Using s 7/16" wrend, hold the end of the motor shaft by the electrical end (where you removed the cover) while turning the impeller counter clockwise (note: some impellers have an impeller screw inside which unthreads CLOCKWISE) untill impeller is off. Replace carbon shaft seal inside. Reverse and prime and then restore power and start.

I have a Starite pump but one of the wires is broke. I don't know where it belongs.I believe it's set up for a 220 line but would like to know if it could be changed to 115


On the pump tag there is a schematic of the electrical. one for low voltage and on for high voltage. look at the high voltage. the A and B terminals or for the wires in the motor. the lines in are for the white and black wires coming in from your power source.connect the lines in to the suggested terminals and it will power up.

I turned my starite pump on and it just hummed for about 5 seconds then cut off. What could be wrong?


Your pump motor or impeller is seized. Disassemble the pump housing and check the impeller to see if it spins freely. If not then check for debris, if impeller appears to be free of debris, then check the shaft seal and motor. If the shaft seal is leaking water, then the motor bearing is likely rusted and will need to be replaced. There are 2 bearings, replace them both along with the shaft seal
