No...Either the unit is not getting power or the motor pack has failed and will need to be replaced. Try another electrical device in the same outlet if you do not have a meter to measure voltage at the pump. If the device such as a lamp or radio works then the unit is getting power...unfortunately there is no repairing those pumps so you'll need a new one.

Help with low flow on intext krystal clear saltwater system.

You can check the inlet line where it comes from the pool... Their is a little sreening/filtering system in the the parts that screw together and connect the valve to the pool... When I unscrewed mine, it was jammed with bugs, leaves, green algea... That did the trick for me... I am sure you already changed/cleaned the filter in the filter/pump that comes before the Salt water system... That will cause low flow as well...

I have a 15x48 intex metal frame pool with a 637 pump that uses A cartridges. I have cleaned out the filter and the skimmer and after hooking everything back up and bleeding air out of the lines I plugged...

if the system is consistently blowing air into the pool in large quantity, you most likely have a suction side leak that is allowing the pump to **** in air and return it back to the pool. try shutting the system off and inspect the suction side for any water leaks, that should lead you to any air leaks on the suction side. try turning the pump on and off a few times to catch any water spurting out of the suction side. Also, make sure the skimmer is now enough to not create a vortex and **** in air as well. Hope this helps.

Intex 633 lost suction

I have seen a common problem when customers change / clean their filter is that put the DRY clean filter in the skimmer box or filter holder and sometimes it can cause an "air lock"
Just take your garden hose put in the intake outlet of your pool and turn that baby on....If you start seeing air bubbles on the discharge end of the line most likely that was your trouble.
If the problem still persist then at that time look into pump repair / replacement.
Good Luck!

Filter pump running hot and water is not circulating. We have a 10 x 30 Intex inflatable pool. Also, pump keeps popping the circuit breaker

If your pool filter and pump are running not and not circulating, it sounds like either your pump is not primed properly, you have an impeller jammed/or broken, or you have something clogging the hose to the return line that is causing pressure to build up. Check all three of these and bet you will find your problem.

My vacuum for my 18' intex pool doesn't work right. Goes good for first minute and then suction is very low. Keep getting air in line. How do I solve this?

Make sure you have your tube completly filled with water. hold one end at the discharge while pump is running when full make sure both end of hose stay under water while connecting. I also leave the bleedee cap unscrewed just a bit to let air escape from the system HAVENT HAD A PROBLEM YET

Pool Pump - keeps getting air

It sounds like you might not be getting enough suction on your pool filter. I would check all of the hose connections for cracks, loose fittings, etc. If you are getting any extra air, it will cause your pressure to decrease.
