Turn the engine off and open the hood. Locate the water pump pulley. The pulley is the round part that the belt is attached to. To find it, look for the belts. You will see more than one pulley. Your car will have an alternator with a pulley and perhaps an air conditioner, power steering and smog pump pulleys. If you are unsure, ask your mechanic to point out the water pump pulley. Grab opposite ends of the round pulley and check for "play" (looseness): Try to rock it back and forth. There should be no give. If there is, the bearings are going and it's time to replace the water pump. By the time you can feel play in the water pump pulley, you may also be able to hear the bad bearing when the engine is running - there may be a low-pitched grinding noise coming from the water pump pulley. Visually check the water pump (it's located behind the pulley) for signs of a coolant leak. If the water pump gasket is leaking, it must be replaced. This is a good time to get a new water pump, too, unless it was just recently replaced.

New replacement in-line heater (C3B54P0-3002AU0) inop.


Bath tub heaters will only maintain the water temperature in the bath. They will only heat the water approximately 1-2 degrees an hour.
Whatever water temperature you start with is what you will be able to maintain.
There is a red indicator light on the front of each heater indicating whether or not there is power to the unit when the tub is full of water and the water pump is turned on.
If there is a red light on then it has power to it and is working.
This heater will never feel warm to the touch.
There are three different styles of Bath Heaters available.
  • Tee Heater - installs on the discharge fitting on the pump
  • In-line Pressure - installs anywhere in the plumbing line before any jet.
  • In-line Vacuum Heater - installs before the suction of the pump
If the heater you purchased is installed in the wrong place it will not operate.

Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

I have a corner whirlpool tub and the pump is leaking water when it is on high. I am trying to find a parts supplier to repair myself


sounds like you need maybe pump union o-rings, part # o-49 or the seal might be leaking. If the water is leaking between the plastic wet end and the motor then it is definitely the seal kit which costs about $30 however on a bathtub most pump mfg have quit making replacement parts for them. You will most likely need a new pump in that case. If you can let us know what brand of pump we can assist you in repair or replacement.

I have a Zoeller Water Ridd'r II Model 48 Sump pump. The pump comes on okay, but will nit shutoff. The float is not impededd, it's just laying on the bottom of the sump. Is this a defective...


If I undrestand your description, when the resevoir is empty, the float lays on the bottom of the resevoir but, the pump doesn't shut off, after water is pumped out? You have to look at this as opposite of a toilet tank filling with water. In a toilet, the water rises and the foat turn the water flow off. In a sump the water will rise, and the float will turnthe pump on until the resevoir is empty, then it will open the system and turn off the pump. If the float doesn't rise, the resevoir will overflow and the pump won't come on at all. If the float rises and the pump comes on but, the float does "not" drop, the pump will continue to run after the resevoir is empty.

This is Zoellers link. I don't see your pump but they do have a support link. If the float rises and falls with the height of the water, turns pump on, then drops "all the way" and pump doesn't turn off, the switch is bad not the float. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the float dropping to it's full down position.

Jetted tub is on 2nd floor over kitchen. when jets are on water comes thru kitchen light fixture! Help!


First find access to tub,by code there needs to be access to pump motor,either built into wall or various tubs front skirt is removeable.Fill tub and run to visibly see leak,sounds like bearing assembly gaskets are leaking on pump,could possibly be a jet connection,but if it only does while running its the pump or motor assembly.Hope that helps,in the future make sure water is always above suction intakes or can lead to premature burnout of pump

Whirlpool bath starts,but water doesn't jet


If that is what it needs and the pump impellor is actually working(turning) then filling the tube leading into the pump, until it take no more water, will prime the pump.

Jacuzzi jets not pumping out water


Check the jet pump, also where the filter is there are two 90s plastic. make sure that they are both in the water, if all those check out then check the switch for the jets. It sounds like the pump is bad and is not pumping the water. Even if the motor works and the internal parts of the motor seal gets wet then it all needs to be replaced and rebuilt. Very easy to do yourself. Like always be careful and unplug the unit.

Whirlpool pump only buzzes.


Well there are two things....You say "buzzes?" Like pump is running "humming" & not pushing water. That would be an "airlock" in the pump & it needs to be primed.
If it's "buzzing" & pump motor is not turning (Like it's froze) you might have a bad start up capacitor on the pump that needs to be replaced. Worst case scenerio entire pump needs replacement.

P2RAXYG-126L Pump


you will need to pull the front cover off the pump housing in order to inspect the impeller. It is possible that it has failed and just needs to be replaced.
