Question about Tsurumi Pump s Submersible Trash Pump - 3000 GPH, 1/2 HP, 2in., Model# HS2.4

1 Answer

I have two 50pn 2.4s pumps on my system. One was tripping the internal overload. I shut it off and removed the pump to my work bench. Obvious by spinning the impeller that there was a bad bearing, but I plugged it in on the runs but jerky and loud...also the impellar is showing wear where it had been obviously running with a rock (or rocks) inside the intake strainer. I disassembled the unit and about a pint of water came out, including water in the electrical compartment at the top. The bottom roller bearing is bad, but had not self destructed. wondering if there is a repair kit for this unit, including a new impellar??? Thanks don mc cain

Hi Don,

Thank you for your great explanation,

This pump really need some serious maintenance, this was cause because the mechanical seal broke down or was completely wear, check your warranty you have 2 years,

The overload jump because the pump at a motor failure, due to water,
The only way to repair this pump is to take the motor and rotor visually check if there is any burn spot or damage part if not you can try to make everything dry for a few days, replace the defect part and put it back together it might work (30%)

But if you think the electric motor run to long with water in it, It will be more worthed to replace it with a new one,

And i stongly suggest you to check the oil on your other pump, to know how is your mechanical seal,

To check the oil its the only star screw on the side of it, when you remove it try not to spill to much out, if the oil is completely clear your mecanical seal is fine, if its white like milk you need to replace it, it mean water start to infiltrate, and its worthed replacing it,

Hope i could help you let me know if you have more question,

Have a great day,

(mechanical seal is what prevent and block water to reach the electrical motor, its the part that as a big stainless steel spring with to sillicon face on top and bottom,)

Intex saltwater pump - runs for 3 minutes and shuts off with service light coming on.

It's overheating internally. Overload switch is either doing its job: tripping out when motor overheats, or the overload switch is faulty and has failed.
On either situation = New Pump
Why ? You ? Ask?
Because Intex Sells NO parts for their components!
They want you to buy a whole new unit.
They are not made with quality in mind. Greatly mass produced in China, and unleashed on the world by the Gazillions.

Pump cuts off then comes back on a few minutes later

More than likely, your unit is equipped with a protective device which automatically trips the unit should the internal motor temperature exceed a preset limit. Then, when the temperature decreases, also to a preset limit, the device turns the pump back on. The purpose of the device is to prevent burnout of the motor.
Have an electrician use a clamp-on ammeter to measure the current draw of the motor and compare that to the nameplate data. If the meter shows the motor near, at or over the normal Full Load Amps (FLA), investigate that condition. While there are numerous possibilities, the most likely causes are worn/defective motor or pump bearings. Try to determine if the motor is actually running hot. The nameplate lists a Temperature Rise which gives the normal motor operating temperature under expected full load conditions. Quick check:If you cannot place your hand on the motor surface for at least 10 seconds w/o undue discomfort, your motor is running hot.
If the motor is tripping but not drawing excessive current nor running hot, it's very possible that the protective device itself is defective and needs replacement.
Have the electrician check out whatever is used in the motor starter for overload device. Some overloads trip on overload and reset themselves on decrease in temperature. Others must be manually reset. If the starter overloads are not tripping but the motor is, then the problem is almost assuredly a defective trip installed in the motor itself.
Important: If you are not electrically trained yourself, it IS NOT recommended that you attempt any electrical troubleshooting. Hire a pro.

I have a inground pool and pentair 2HP pump. It was running fine for 5 hours and stopped working on it's on. I am switching the power on but there is no response. Is it a pump problem or some...

Thank you for posting your question here on

It does not hum or buzz or anything? If not I'd start with looking for a tripped circuit breaker. If there is nothing tripped then the motor has either tripped is thermal overload and it needed to cool off or it is dead and needs to be repaired or replaced. If it is the overload it will start working again within an hour, maybe two. That is a sign of an internal problem that needs to be corrected soon or the motor will fail permanently.

If the breaker tripped it too is a sign there is a more severe problem that needs to be addressed before the motor fails beyond repair.

Occasionally my submersible pump control trips and i have to manually reset it. Am I looking at possible future problems. Is it possible that the problem lies with the control box or would it be the pump...

Yes... you should be looking at a possible replacement before too long...
What often happens id that the pump wears internally and then it will lock up and cause a high amp. condition which trips the control out...this can be an intermittent problem for quite a while before it causes major issues...

but eventually it will just stop working...

Plan to replace...

POLARIS PB-4 3/4 HP BOOSTER PUMP -- body of pump very hot, too hot to hold hand on. 20 amp breaker gets very hot also. Has not tripped the 20 amp breaker yet.

A motor can run that hot and still be within the temperature it can handle. It likely has an internal overload device that will shut it off if it exceeds that temperature. If you see something like "thermally protected" on the motor nameplate, you are ok. If it is getting noisy as it runs it may need servicing.

Overheats and trips off

internal thermal over loads in motor are working properly! how old is the motor? double check all vavles on the intake and discharge line to make sure that they are open? sounds like the pump is pushing against what is known as dead head pressure. obstruction in discharge line! if valves are ok you can take the jet covers off (the piece that helps direct flow of water) which will relieve some of the pressure should allow it to run without tripping tgermal overloads. if none of this works replace motor!!
