Counter clockwise looking at the impeller end. If you can't hold the motor shaft, you might try an impact wrench or using a socket and ratchet sharply strike the wrench.

How do I lock the shaft so that I can remove the impeller?


remove the cap at the rear of the motor. you'll see the shaft under the thermal overload. Take a 7/16 or 1/12 wrench depending on shaft size, turn the impeller until you see the slot for the wrench. you may have to remove the starting compassitor to make some more room. Hold your wrench with one hand and remove the impeller. ***some impellers have a lock screw in the middle of them, if you have one it is left handed threads, this must be removed before the impeller can be removed.

The impeller is threaded onto the motor shaft. On 2hp motors and above, there is usually a screw with reverse threads to help secure impeller to shaft. To remove impeller, first remove screw(reverse threads) Next, remove back cover off motor. The shaft either has a slot for a screwdriver or flats for a wrench. Hold shaft and unscrew impeller.

Hi, I have a QC 1072 A.O. Smith pool pump motor. How to get the impeller off? Which direction does the impeller spin off? Where to but impeller and seal? Thank you very much Greg


The impeller is just screwed on the shaft. COUNTERCLOCKWISE to remove. Some have a screw in the center attaching it to shaft. This is removed by by turning CLOCKWISE.(reverse threads) Remove back cover and secure shaft with a wrench. There are flats on the shaft to hold it. You might need a large pipe wrench to loosen impeller. Wrap with rag so you don't damage impeller.

I have never taken this pump apart.
If I were in your position and I could move the impellar 1/8 turn, the next thing that I would do is carefully loosen the nut on the end of the shaft being careful that nothing else disassembles. Once this nut is loose say 2 turns, try the impellar again watching what is moving. It seems that the nut may have to be removed.
Also, I'm not sure which way the nut of the impellar rotates to remove, but you seem to have that under control since you have it moving already.

How to seperate pump from motor


Disconnect all power. Remove the six bolts holding the seal plate to the wet end. Remove the two small allen screws to remove the diffuser. Remove the dust cap from the end of the motor and secure the shaft from moving. If installed, remove the Phillips head screw in the center of the impeller by turning clockwise (left hand threads). You can now remove the impeller by turning counter clockwise, note that you may need an impeller wrench to remove it and a specific tool to hold the shaft while you remove the impeller. Once the impeller is off you can remove the four bolts that hold the motor to the seal plate. This process just needs to be reversed to re-install but you will need a new shaft seal (PS-1000).

We are having issues getting the impeller apart on the jacuzzi magnum force pool pump and need some instructions on how to proceed.


I believe the jacuzzi pump impeller has a locking screw directly in the middle of the impeller. You'll have to turn it clockwise to remove it. Then you'll need to remove the cover from the back of the motor using a 1/4" nut driver. Depending on the motor, you should be able to use a 7/16" open end wrench to hold the motor shaft from turning as you turn the impeller counter-clockwise to remove it. Some motors are different, some have a keyed shaft or require a special tool to hold the shaft while the impeller is removed. Hope this helps.

Pump disassembly


I removed the impeller on my DW761UQB. The instructions were molded into the plastic pump housing. This is how I DID MINE: Remove motor mount screws. Remove the chopper screw (screw only goes into impeller, not motor shaft). Remove chopper and rotate/remove strainer. Place socket or wrench on impeller tip and place another wrench on rear of motor's plastic fan. Unscrew fan from impeller shaft ( threads are LEFT handed, turn CW). Once fan is 'backed off' of the impeller, CAREFULLY pry the motor/fan from pump housing (impeller is attached to motor shaft via splines). Don't crack the delicate plastic pump housing. Mine was stuck, but separated with moderate force. Now remove the impeller/seals from the pump housing. This worked for MY above mentioned model, I don't know what other models it applies to. I am not a pro.
