Check the pump impeller inside for damage or obstructions. A clogged or broken impeller would fit your description of symptoms. If you find nothing in the pump your next step would be the filter.

Bypass it using a recirculate feature if one is present on the control valve.

Another test would be to try backwashing you filter if you can to see if the pump operates in that setting.

If none of those solve your problem post a comment with any details from what happened when trying these steps and we can look elsewhere for a solution.

Kenmore model 11628015700 suction motor won't run


Sometimes a motor will get a stuck carbon brush. Remove the motor from the machine and spray it around the carbon brushes with lectra motor cleaner. Do this outside FYI. This is a CRC product.
Next try hooking it up to a pair of leads, gator clips etc.. than you can plug into an electrical outlet to test it before reinstalling it. If it pops and sputters your motor is gone. PS Kenmore parts run 150 percent of outher brands so when you go to replace it maybe look at a manufactures brand directly. IF you can not disassemble the machine you can tap with medium force around the motor housing with a rubber mallet. Plug the machine in and turn it on while you tap the housing. Sometimes you will hear the motor come to life as the brush is knocked free.

I have a AO smith ST1152 and red black and green wires. How do I wire it


Verify the voltage to the pump. These days motors and pumps largely are set to run on 230v out of the box (for in ground pools). If your supply voltage is 115v, the motor will run at half speed. This would cause poor suction. If this is the case, do this:

On the side of the motor there is a diagram on how to convert the wiring from 230v to 115v so it will run on the correct voltage. Most of the time, that's the issue. Flip the breaker off before working on it.

I have an air leak in intake line


Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is loosing suction or prime?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool Pump Losing Suction or Prime If your Swimming Pools Filter system looses Prime, it is caused by one of the following conditions.
Note: The lost of suction/prime is caused a leak which in turn sucks air into the system. The lost of suction/prime will be anywhere from the Main Pool Skimmer(s) to the Pool Pump. It will NOT be from the Pool Pump to the Pools Main Return(s).
1) First make sure that your water level is high enough so that the skimmer is not sucking air.
2) Check the Pump Pot Housing Lid Seal and be certain that its completely sealing and is not
Sucking air into the system. Check the lid for cracks. If either condition is true, replace the Pump Pot Lid Seal and/or entire lid
3) Check all fittings, clamps and hoses from the pools skimmer to the Pools Pump Pot Housing for wear, tightness and leaks.
4) Check Pool Pump Pot Housing for cracks.
If everything aforementioned in good working order, the next thing to check is the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal and the Pumps Impeller and finally the pump.

5) While the Pool Pump Motor is running, carefully inspect the area where the Pump Pot Housing attaches to the Pump Motor. See if there is any water leaking. Next, spray the area with water and see if the water is sucked into the Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
6) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half and inspect the Pump Motor Impeller. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged.
7) Re-inspect the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal by standing the partially disassembled upright, with the Pump Motor towards the ground. Pour water over the impeller and into the cavity. See if the water leaks thru to the outside of the Pump Pot Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
8) Remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts

Dental suction pumps


Hi adi
Your pump sounds as if it is air bound...that is air that is trapped inside of the impeller housing and not allowing the pump to pump water normally....prime the pump using water to dispel the air

After cleaning my D.E. pool filter it still does not work properly


What exactly is it doing? Do you have a drop or stop in flow? If so, try one of these solutions. Clean the pump strainer AND skimmer basket. Make sure that the impeller is not jammed or clogged. Cleaning with a stiff wire brush through the pump strainer opening will usually work. The alternate method would be to disassemble and clean. You could have an air leak on suction side of pump. Check cover gasket, hand knobs, hose, clamps, etc. Replace or tighten them as necessary. Finally, it could be that your pool filters electric motor is running less than maximum R.P.M. Most motor problems are due to undersized or improper wiring, power cut backs, or a combo of both.

I have a Century 1081 115v, 2 speed pump for my waterfeature. The motor runs fine in low and high spped, the pump impeller is spinning but it dies not pump water.It is a 3/4 horse. The waterfall reservoir...


I don't know the answer to this ... your pool service company can advise you. To my way of thinking, you are asking a lot of a 3/4 horse. I have a 1 1/2 horse lifting water in a two inch pipe about 4 feet to my water feature with no reservoir.

Since you have a two inch pipe, why not run a bigger motor? I have two HP on all my filtered lines which are 2" suction and 2" discharge.

Are you absolutely sure you have suction? ... and no air leaks on the suction side?

Pump comes on--the water stopped coming out---noticed the 2 wires coming from the pump hooked to points are black at end----top of pump got warm----have had a lot of lighting in my area---3/4 pump


Likely two very separate problems:

Prime failure is either mechanical wear in the pump or an air leak in the suction line. It is usually easier to look for air leaks in the suction prior to disassembling the pump to look for trouble. A clogged foot valve, a clogged impeller, clogged inlet screens, etc.

Line leads discoloring can mean many things: Line voltage may be dropping too much and/or the line leads undersized. The motor may be beginning to fail causing an increase in amp draw. The pump may be overloaded but that is unlikely.

As you narrow down the possibilities please add comments to this post if you need additional guidance.

Teel pump M#IP985B will not pump, motor runs good, it will pump if suction hose is higher than inlet, but not below inlet, what could be wrong?


Typically, there is foreing material in the veins of the pump, I suggest that you disassemble the pump and inspect the impeller, and remove foreign material.

Vacuum doesn't ****


Assuming the unit (motor) runs ok and since it used, you may need to disassemble it and check the suction right at the motor. Sometimes there is a filter screen in front of it that can plug. The motor impeller could be partially obstructed or dirty, reducing the vacuum force. The bag should be the correct one for the unit or suction can be lost if it doesn't fit correctly.
