20 Most Recent Hayward 2HP Pool Pump Motor A O Smith Electric Pool Motor for 56J Frame - Page 5 Questions & Answers


Some impellers have a screw in the middle which screws into the centershaft with reverse threads. If it has one, unscrew that first. Next, there is either a flat on the shaft near the opposite end or there is a slot in the end of the shaft for a screwdriver. Hold the shaft securely, and unscrew impeller. Sometimes a big pair of pliers is needed, but be careful not to damage impeller.

Take the rear cap off in the center of the rear motor. You will find a nut there and use pliers to hold this nut cause it rotates with the impellar. put a bind on it and the impellar should unscrew right off the shaft.

Could be many things. Could be something jammed in the impeller (not likely) If motor has been off for some time the bearings could be seized, and a little spin might free it up. Could be the bearings are bad. Could be the start capacitor is bad, keeping the motor from having enough torque to start. Could be the motor windings are shorted and the motor would then have to be replaced.

if its whining but still spinning, the bearings are done. If it just makes a loud noise, the capacitor could be bad or the bearings have seized.

More than the motor it is probally a bad seal causing the problem with the motor. All you can do is be sure it is installed right when you put the new one in and if you see water under the pump take it apart and install a new one. I live in AZ and the water will evaporate before it gets to the ground under the pump so here this can be a real annoying problem. We quite often will have to look for calcium left behind when something leaks.

The bearings have likely lost their lubrication and have failed. You may be able tot find a local electric motor repair shop to replace the bearings. It really is not a diy project. However, if you can't find a local shop to do it, most folks replace the motor.

You will need a two speed time clock to really take advantage of real energy efficiency savings. Intermatic makes one that fits in place of the original t104 time clock. You will need to run an additional wire to the pump as well. You will have the ground. Then one common wire that is always hot whether or not you are on high speed or low speed. You could make this a white wire. Then a black wire for your high speed that is energized in high speed and a red wire for the low speed. It is important that the high and low speeds not be energized at the same time, otherwise you will hear a very unpleasant sound coming from the motor, and failure and shortened life of the motor will be realized.

Hi ,, the pump motor will separate from the pump housing. there are 4 to 6 bolts around the joint between the motor and the pump. You probably want to remove the pump and motor from the system and get it to a more comfortable place for working. Unscrew the bolts and the motor will come off the pump housing. Then you need to remove the pump impellar. The whole thing goes back together in the reverse steps .. If you go to a pool shop for your motor , they should have an exploded model that you can look at to see how all the parts reassemble ..

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

When it shuts off, is it tripping a GFI or breaker or shutting down due to heat?

How did you connect the other two wires? Is it wired to a 115V or 230V system? It will run on a 115V system even if set for 230V but over time it will overheat and behave as you describe. If it is set for the proper voltage (i.e. – the setting matches the voltage present) you will need to check line voltage at the motor terminals to ensure the motor or supply lines are not dropping the voltage to low causing it to overload and shut down.

Yes, As long as the timer is rated to handle the amperage (current) of the pump as well as the voltage.

You will need to disassemble the pump and check the impeller. remove any debris and try turning the impeller by hand. If it does not move or is dragging, you will need to overhaul the pump. Possibly a shaft seal leak has damaged the motor bearing(s). Replace the shaft seal and motor bearings. If the motor is badly deteriorated, you might need to replace the motor. Note... the impeller turns counterclockwise to loosen. you may need special tools to grip and hold the motor shaft and the impeller to prevent damage to the impeller. If the impeller is seized on the shaft from rust, you may have to break it to get it off. reassemble with teflon lubricant on the shaft threads when reinstalling the impeller. This will prevent seizure later.

not a easy task, the bearing are easy to damage . try looking for your local pool pump motor repair shop (your zip code) cost should be around 85.00 with a new shaft seal (a must !)

Sounds like the bearings but uou would need to take it to a motor shop to have this done. This will cost less than the spectility tools needed to do the work.

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

A typical pool pump motor is going to last about 10 – 12 years. A corroded frame and tripping breakers suggests it is at the end of its service life.

It short, it needs to be replaced...for a replacement motor quote, please get as much info off the nameplate as you can and also note what brand the pump it attaches to is and contact us thru www.arrowmotor.net or www.arrowpools.net at your convenience.

Based on what you’ve posted I’d guess it is either an AOS-USQ1102 or AOS-UST1102. Costs for those would be $177.10 OR $172.00 respectively. Your message using the contact feature on our site will confirm which is the correct one.

Be sure you are actually one the L1 and L2 posts and/or screws. On some of the motors there is a third quick connect tab that is not used when set for 230V lines but if you connect one of your incoming line leads to it the motor wont work. If that is not the case, be sure you have a resistance reading somewhere close to 1 ohm across the L1 & L2 terminals. If you get infinite, there is a problem with the motor. I assume the motor is completely silent when you turn on the switch? If not and it is humming but not starting, have the capacitor checked and if necessary, the motor start switch and winding.
