If you have not already done so, use teflon tape on the threads for the outlet port. This may solve your problem. Good luck!

When you go to loosten the lock ring you will need to find the lock tab that will keep it from comming off. This tab I think will pull out but it may push in and this will free the ring to turn. Once this is off if the motor runs turn it on for a second and let it push the front and back half apart. If it won't run you can use a flush bag to pressure it off. In worst case you can pry the halvs apart with a big screwdriver. If you do this be careful not to hurt the case of the pump it is just plastic.
When the pump is opener you remove the difusser and look inside the impeller. If you have a screw in the center of the impeller it will be a left hand thread so to remove you will turn it clockwise. Now just unscrew the impeller turning it counter clockwise and take the rear plate off the motor by removing the four bolts on the back. Good luck.

It could be the capacitor again, but most likely if it stopped while running, its not that, unless you had a brief power failure. The motor may have a built in thermal overload which turned the pump off. If it only humms then it could either be locked up by something in the impller, or could be the bearings in the motor have failed. If the motor doesn't smell "burnt" then you might stand a change to disassemble the pump. Disassemble the motor and replace bearings. Replace the mechanical seal while you have it apart. OR you could buy a new motor, as it is 10 years old.

If you are not getting any suction to the vacuum, but the pump is working fine the rest of the time, start by checking all of your connections that conncets the cleaner to the filter and pump. Make sure there are no cracks, lose hoses, etc. Then, check for the following common problems with your pump that might cause low pressure in pool pumps:

1) Pump not primed

2) Leakage of air into suction system

3) Impeller clogged

4) Valve in suction or discharge line partly closed; Suction or discharge

line partly plugged or too small.

You should be able to remove the diffuser and then the impeller to gain access to the shaft seal on these pool pumps. Your users manual should have a diagram.

You have two windings if it is two speed. What you need is a switch
before your wires come into the motor you need to take one of the leads and run it through a high low switch. This will simply take one of your 110v lines and make it go to high and low speed on the motor.
Green will go to ground, one 110v line will go to common and the other goes to the switch. It comes out as two leads. One will hook up to the low speed terminal and the other will hook to the high speed terminal in the back of the motor.

looking at he face of the impeller turn counter clockwise, with a large set of CHANNELLOCK 20" Pliers Channel Lock Model 480 cost about $70.00 there is a notch on the back of the motor shaft for ether a 1/2 or 7/16 open end wrench to fit in to hold the rotor from turning. warning ! these pumps are hard to find parts for so you want to have the right tool so you don't break anything. your best bet is to bring it to your local pool pump motor repair guy and have him do it, if its just the seal you are trying to replace it should be a $20 job
if'n i was any help vote ... thanks ..jay .. and prime the pump after a repair !
