SOURCE: we have aEC-65 hayward pool filter with a 1HP

I believe that this particular model is a DE pool filter. Is that correct? If you are operating with a media other than DE, let me know. Assuming that you ARE using DE:
1. You DE could be coated to the maximum with pool dirt algae, etc. To correc this problem, you need to bump the filter.
2. You could have an overcharge of DE. To remedy,
Bump-Drain-Recharge.
3. Restriction in return line caused by small
eyeball fitting. To correct, change to a larger sized fitting.
4. You could have a partial closed valve on a return line. You will just need to open the valve.
5. Make sure that your pump strainer basket and pool skimmer basket are not clogged.
6. Make sure that your pump impeller valves are not clogged.

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


It could be the pump is bound up but it is more likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.

Start with the capacitor if one is present. Use a digital multi-meter (DMM), preferably with a capacitor setting, or an analog meter set for Ohms. With an analog, you should see the needle deflect as if testing a closed circuit then it will slowly drop to 0 if the capacitor is good. If it doesn't move or moves and stays to the side showing a closed circuit the capacitor is bad. If you notice a burn hole near the terminals on the end of the capacitor do not bother to test it. If you do not have access to a meter you can try grounding the posts together with a screwdriver to see if they arc although it is not a very reliable test method. Be sure you are holding on to an insulated handle for the tool you use to short the terminals together or you can get a good poke.

Next check the internal stationary start switch for continuity thru the contacts. Bent or burned up points and arms can cause a startup failure...you may need a new part if yours is more than bent out of position.

Finally check the winding for grounds and shorts...if you find any it is most likely time for a new motor.

If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage. If you wish to continue to try to repair it yourself please comment with any questions you have as you work thru the pump and motor.

Check your impeller. Remove the pump motor from the housing to inspect the impeller. Be prepared to replace the seal.

Let me know what you find.

Remove impellersp1592


Assuming power is disconnected and pump freed from hoses,:
Pull the clip out from inside the basket housing. The entire housing comes off.
Open the cover at the power end, and
Put a large screwdriver into the slot on the end of the shaft.
Holding screwdriver in one hand unscrew the impeller by hand with the other.
If it is too hard, you will need a special tool that won't damage the impeller.

Ihave a hayward 1hp inground pool pump and can not get the impellar off


you will need to hold the motor shaft at the back of the motor with either a 7/16 open end wrench, or either armature tool. You can then use a closed face impeller wrench to remove it. Make sure if there is a screw in the center of the impeller to remove it by turning clockwise.

HOW TO GET IMPLER OFF TO REPLACE THE SEAL ASSY


The impeller unscrews counter clockwise. I assume you already have the motor disconnected from the pump housing? If you need to hold the motor, it will depend on what kind of motor you have. Some motors have a wrench flat on the rear shaft of the motor if you remove the rear cover. It usually takes a 1/2" open end wrench. Be careful not to bump into the centrufugal switch assembly. Another trick is to use an impact wrench IN REVERSE ONLY it will often break it loose even though the motor spins. Only use it to remove it not to re-install impeller.

How do I get old motor off pump to install my new motor?


The front of the wet end must be removed to access the impeller. Then remove the rear electrical covering to expose the rear end of the motor shaft. Look closely at the shaft. It has two flat sides. A 12mm open face wrench will fit onto the shaft. Lock the shaft in place with the wrench and unscrew the impeller. The rear housing behind the impeller pops off to reveal four 9/16 bolts. Remove them and the motor is free. Reverse the process with the new motor.

Replace pool motor


First you'll need to take the outer 6 bolts off the pump housing and that will allow you to remove the impeller and impeller housing with the motor. Then you can remove all the impeller parts and get to the bolts that hold your motor to the housing....
When you get the impeller and the housing free, check to see if your motor will turn... alot of times the motors get jammed because the pump sucks debris and jams in the impeller.... you may be able to still use your motor...worth a try...

Leak between seal plate and pump/strainer housing


The pump seal is leaking and needs replacing and requires removing four 3/8 bolts (9/16) wrench and removing the motor then the diffuser to get to the impeller and seal . A 7/16 wrench holds the rear motor shaft behind the springs and impeller spins off to reveal the seal which has two parts one on the impeller with a spring and one in the seal plate is white ceramic/ porcelan whatever they use. Part number is an SPX1600KA on super pumps and 1500KA wassome above grounds. When replacing do not touch the mating white and black surfaces with your fingers.
