ANSWER : Did you forget to open the valves on either side of the pump after draining and filling perhaps ?

The pump has been louder for a couple of weeks and after I stopped it to clean the spa filter, it won’t start. Sounds likes it’s seized
ANSWER : I had that happen when the spa was off for 10 days. I took the pump and wet end out, and managed to turn the shaft to free it. It has rusted up in place.

6 months later it started the loud noise and started getting worse – the motor bearing at the wet end was seizing up. I replaced motor and wet end just in time.

2375 poulan chain saw brake is shot,how do I fix it?
ANSWER : You Likely by this time have resolved this. Mine messed up one day and I found a spring inside it. This spring wraps around the counter weights and pulls them together at idle speed, allowing the chain to stop, without stopping the motor. As you throttle it up and the RPM increases the spring allows the weights to push outward , engaging the chain. I have used mine without it, but I’m sure that would not be a recommended procedure, as the chain is always engaged, even when idling.

Motor hums but does not turn freely, can you turn the motor by removing the motor end cap?

Is there a way to fix th magnets in dept 56 animated

I have a Waterway Spa Pump Executive 56 Frame 4hp Dual Speed PF-40-2N22C in a Catalina spa that recently developed an issue. The pump will not start in low speed, just makes a humming noise, but it will start in high speed and will also continue to run in low speed when switched back from high speed. Does anyone know what might be wrong, and also how the power it supplied to this motor to achieve the two speeds?
ANSWER : The problem with the sound is the bearings inside the motor are going out. i have the same pump and i have to replace the motor. replacing the bearings is very hard and will cost you about the same after you carry the motor and new bearings to a shop to be pressed in. hope this helps!!

Pondmaster mdl 24 Series magnetic pump.

re: Replacement impeller/magnetic shaft installation

Question: What do I need to do to install the impeller ***’y into the pump housing to ALLIGN THE CERAMIC IMPELLER SHAFT INTO IT’S BEARING without breaking the ceramic shaft off?

Situation: The strong magnetic field of the impeller ***’y instantly pulls itself into the housing and magnetically attaches itself to the winding wall. The impeller shaft is thus OFFCENTER and cannot be moved inside it’s bearing mount. It MUST BE CENTERED in the housing in order to seat the shaft inside the bearing.

I am baffled. Help really appreciated.

ANSWER : The bearing needs to be pressed onto the ceramic shaft before inserting the impeller into the housing. Then it just drops in (while trying to hold on to it the best you can to keep it from slamming in.). New bearings didn’t come with the new impeller? If not you will have to carefully pry out the old bearing from inside the housing.
