Check the filter at the hose connection at the pool wall. Sounds like low pressure to the turbine.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

The new pumps are shipped ready to connect to a 230V AC circuit. Is yours only 115? If so the motor will overheat and its thermal overload protector will shut it off until it cools off enough.

There are directions on the side of your pump motor telling you how to reconnect the motor IF YOUR CIRCUIT is only 115V.

If it is set for and wired to a 230V circuit you'll need to examine the line conditions coming into the motor. Check line to line voltage and line to ground on both leads to ensure proper voltage both without load and with. If your motor is wired correctly and set for the correct voltage then you should find the problem when you check the line conditions. If you need more help with that step please add a comment with your questions.

This means that one of the 2 pieces of the shaft seal are not seated all the way. More likely the part on the seal plate. Make sure you use a non petroleum based lube to seat the shaft seal.

For an impeller really stuck on the motor shaft you need to pull the motor thru-bolts and remove the rotor with the pump still attached from the stator. Lock the rotor in a vice and turn the impeller off with a large set of channel locks or a large strap wrench.

Not enough info here. I can help you with any problem with your Polaris booster pump, or just about any impeller issue with most pool pumps. Please respond to clarification, or post further question in the comments. Thanks

You are trying to remove the pump so you can replace the impeller correct?
To remove the impeller you do not need to remove the whole pump. Turn off the electric first. Then just remove the several bolts and separate the back half from the front. Then disconnect the electrical from the motor and your can pull the motor with the seal plate, and impeller all the way out and work on it. To remove the impeller you need to lock the motor and unscrew impeller. Depending on the motor, you remove a cap in the middle of the tailpiece and hold with a wrench, or remove a cap that covers the whole end and grab the shaft with a wrench (usually 7/16") by sliding it under one of the components (not sure exact part off top of my head have to look at it) and then turning impeller. If the impeller has a bolt or screw in the middle remove that first. It should be reverse thread so make sure you don't turn the wrong way and break or strip. If there is no screw, or after you've removed it, just spin the impeller off (it should be counter clockwise standard thread). If you can't do it by hand and assuming you don't have an impeller wrench, be very careful and use a large pliers, pipe wrench, or strap wrench to loosen it. After that you unbolt the motor from the seal plate, pull the seal plate away from motor (this removes half the seal), and then pop the other half of the seal from the seal plate. Make sure replace the shaft seal, and use a tiny bit of pool lube on the rubber parts when installing, but keep the white and black ceramic surfaces 100% free of any dirt, grease, etc while working with them

Check your voltage and be sure it matches the way the motor is wired. You will find a scematic for this on top or on the side of the new motor, with a diagram on how to rewire it if nessary. If this is not the problem then it is in the motor and should be returned for a new one.

You need to lock the other end of the motor shaft and then spin off the impeller. If you would like a quote on the replacement seal, contact us at www.arrowpools.net

can use water blaster - if no way to take impeller off.

Does it have a century motor? If so, remove the shaft cover plate at the rear and try rotating the shaft with a very thick slotted screwdriver or substitute until it turns fairly easily. Often some mild oxide develops around components that just needs to be disturbed.
