If you have some manuals skills you can open the motor case and check for the wires that are winded it the motor.Usually the first thing to check is the solenoid that power the motor and in most models is located outside.Check if is burn or test it using a jumper cable directly from the outlet.

If you need more help come back.

Water comes out but spray arms don't turn and motor doesn't seem to be runing

Sounds like a bad pump/motor. It is also possible that something hard (like broken glass) got down into the pump impeller, stopping it from turning. Depending on the brand and model, this may be easy or hard to check and clean out.

Think I need an impeller for Asko 1355 - everything runs, but spray arms don't turn or spray water.

Does the motor run or just buzz. If buzzing occurs check for foreign object in food chopper or circulation pump impeller. water pressure makes em go. please let us know if that works.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on

In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Jacuzzi pump motor leaks at the seal

This means that your pump seals are bad. They are an inexpensive part to replace luckily, but removing the impeller can be tough. There are a number of different Jacuzzi motor/pumps so be sure to get the right seal kit.

The trick is to stop the shaft from spinning while you loosen the impeller. FYI they don't usually come off easily, the older the pump the harder it is to remove the impeller.
On the rear of the motor there is a slot where you can put a flat screw driver into the back of the shaft to stop it from spinning. Once the impeller is off you can remove the volute (rear housing) and change the seal.
Let me know if you need more help.

Problem with Sta-Rite 5P2R pump

1 year mfgr warranty and a possible stuck impeller (from debris) or bad motor bearing(s)... You will need to disassemble the pump and inspect the impeller by rotating it and check the motor for a seized bearing and bad shaft seal. Replace both bearings and shaft seal may resolve the issue. If the motor and impeller spin freely, then you might have a bad motor start capacitor. Some motors have a mechanical governor that can get stuck on the high speed switch and the motor will not spin until that is repaired. These type of pumps require some knowledge and skill to overhaul. Seek professional assistance to prevent damage.

I have a Hailea pond pump about 1 1/2 years old which was working perfectly up till yesterday, suddenly it stopped working, according to the manual it says need to change the impeller. Can you tell me how...

the problem is things arent made to last anymore and if you replace the impeller then the chance of the motor burning out is high because pumps dont last long anymore and if you have a problem with one it the first year or 2 then thats all that pump is ment to last.

My Kenmore dishwasher starts to fill and then stops

I've got the same dishwasher....mine is 2 years old and used only 3 times a week and now the motor is burnt out. I understand that this unit is a Frigidaire and is one of the worst ..quality speaking. I guess that why they only provide an one year warranty. Unfortunately, we got a LEMON

Jacuzzi magnum pool pump impeller broke

The impeller on the Magnum pump unthreads counter clockwise as do other impellers. There is a shaft of the motor that runs the length of the motor, on the back of the motor when you take the bell housing off you will see a small silver spot with a **** in it for a standard screwdriver. Put the biggest one in there you can and then grab the impeller and turn it counter clock wise and it should unthread. Sometimes they won't if it has been on there a number of years. You will need to break it off if it doesn't unthread. Then just purchase a new Impeller for the Jacuzzi Magnum Pump.
