SOURCE: pump does not turn on except for a humming sound and shuts off jumping the electric breaker

This could be anything from a stuck impeller to bad windings in motor. If you open the pump at the lock ring and remove the difusser from the impeller you can see if you can spin the impeller, If it won't move is it something holding the impeller up remove it. If notit is probally a bad bearing and you should replace the motor. If the Impeller turns try turning it on and caerfully try to spin before it kicks the breaker. If it is sort of stuck and does not want to turn the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. If it spins and won't start same thing, If it spins and starts it is probally a start capicator. Shut the power off at the breaker remove the back of the motor the capacitor will be a small black or silver cylinder with 2 or 3 wires clipped to it. Remove this and take it to a motor shop and get an exact duplicate. and that should fix it. When putting back together be sure to lube all "O"rings and refill with water. Hope this helps.

LG DLE5977W dryer displays Clean Filter and hums without turning drum when Start button is pushed


I would guess a broken drive belt. Just take top off and check. Two screws on back, pull top back about 2 inches, left off. Belt should be around drum. If belt is loose or gone, it's broken.

Pump hums but won't run


awwhhh it sounds as if you stored your pump dry all winter long ill bet, well ya just cant do that after it pumps salt water all summer , salt has crusted up inside pump and valves , try a hot water dose (not on motor) that might get it going again (repeat several times)
otherwise your gonna need to take it all apart clean in hot water and grease all up with foodgrade waterproof grease (see kitchen faucet parts section of hardware store)
on a salt water pool you have to store your filter and pump filled/capped with RV antifreeze (foodgrade) any good rv store sells it
salt wont crust up inside then

I suspect you had air trapped in the filter. When the pump shut down, the compressed air in the filter pushed back, turned the pump backwards, and unscrewed the impeller off the motor shaft. This particular pump doesn't use an impeller screw which prevents this from happening. You will have to pull the pump apart to see if this is the cause. I have seen this happen many times.

Not getting gas to engine


Assuming you have a late model truck, when you first switch on the key do you hear the Fuel Pump "hum" (toward the back and maybe above the tank)? If not, that pump is either not getting electricity (bad fuse? or perhaps the terminals need cleaning ...or the pump, if it isn't doing anything (no humming, etc) ...then it's in need of replacement. Best of luck! You may also have a clogged fuel filter but I have no info on your truck so I'm of little to no help!

When I turned my pump off to backwash and then turned it back on it made a humming noise then stopped running. Now it is doing nothing. what could the problem be?


sounds like a bad start capacitor, or there is something (rock, sand, or some debris) caught in the impeller.

The start capacitor not working will cause your motor to hum, then it will overheat and trip the high limit. It won't attempt to come back on until it has cooled. It's a common problem.

try clearing the impeller first, if that doesn't work and the motor shaft spins freely, then it's a capacitor.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I see you have already attacked the filter! Were you able to test the motor in motion as well as checking if it was free? If not here are the last 2 paragraphs of my 'check drain filter and drain pump motor' guidance notes ;-0)
(REMOVE POWER)
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!
