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.

Pool pump running low psi


your pump should be just fine once the water starts flowing again. You may have run it too long without enough water to cool the seal.
If it is leaking water between the Jacuzzi Pump housing and the motor then you will need a new pump seal. Those are common pool parts.

I have an 11 year old Jacuzzi Magnum Force 1227 pool pump model 15UMFS. I want to replace it, but don't know how many horsepower it is. Can you tell me?


Probably 1.5 HP but if you can read any of the nameplate data on the motor it would be helpful to confirm. A better approach might be to size the new pump to the volume of water in the pool.

If all you are going to replace is the pumps motor then can you provide at least the amp ratings off the motor? Those should help verify what your old unit's horsepower really is.

Jacuzzi hot tub pump. Put new pump and motor in water wont circulate but can here pump running.


Check your suction plumbing to be sure it is sealed and tight. Then force some water through the pipe to see if anything is blocking it.

My magnum force pool pump was installed in dec. 2003. It still pumps very strong but is making a very loud noise when its on. It seems to be working fine except that its really, really loud. Any ideas?


More than likely your bearings are going bad. Pool pumps run many hours a day and if you get 5 years or more then that is about all you can expect. More than likely you can buy a new motor for just a little more than the price to replace the bearings but I suggest you contact a local electric motor shop to get a price on both. It will not hurt to continue to use the unit until it dies but the noise will drive you crazy and will really anoy your neighbors. You might want to install a smoke detector in the event the unit starts smoking or starts a fire.

Our Jaccuzzi Magnum Force pump extremely low pressure


Giving it a good cleaning probably clogged the pump impeller. If you vac'd the pool and the pump basket was packed with debrie it probably passed through and clogged. Split the pump and inspect the eye of the impeller. Low pressure means low flow.

Jacuzzi Magnum Force Pump not working


The number one problem is air leaks.......check all connections to see that they are tight, and rubber seals. The intake side would give you trouble with air leaks. If you dont find any leaks then I would pull the pump cover and check the impellor. Pool stores have parts and lots of knowledge.
