Emerson 1081 pool pump makes buzzing noise when i turn it on wont start


Either something blocking the impeller / shaft, from turning or the motor failed.

You can try to manually assist the motor, by removing the small cap at the back of the motor, getting a flat blade screwdriver, and right when you flip the switch (get a helper) turn the shaft clockwise while it buzzes. If it takes off - possible Bad Capacitor? Try a couple times if it doesn't take.

if bad capacitor, make sure you get the exact replacement, or 'Slightly Greater' will work - and I refer to the MFD number. Don't go smaller!

You shorted the 230 lines at the motor terminal board. If you are certain you have reset any and all breakers feeding the spa and that the 230V is getting back to the pump motor then you blew the winding leads as you shorted the motor. While it is possible a motor shop could repair the leads it is far more likely the damage caused will cause the price to be that or more of a replacement motor.

The motor may have blown the start capacitor. It is the black cylinder about 1-1/2" dia x 2-1/2" long. Look at the end with the wires for a small hole. Is it blackened or have a hole blown thru? If so replace it. Otherwise have a local electric motor repair shop look at it for possible repair or replacement.

My new AO Smith 2HP pool pump won't pump water, just hums


I'm guessing that you replaced the motor that goes to the pump, not the pump itself. You know the motor works just fine. Is the motor rotating in the correct manner(clockwise or counterclockwise) in relation to the rotation of the pump? Have you checked the pump to see if the impeller is working/rotating? Is the motor hooked up to the pump correctly, so that the motor is turning the impeller? Are all connections to the pump tight, so there are no suction leaks? Have you primed the pump and purged it of any air locks?

Pump hums when switched on but does not work more than 20 seconds


hi i had the same problem with my booster pump motor it hum but did not turn. to make a long story short see if there is a metal cap on the back of your motor if there is pry it off and you should get to see the shaft turn the shaft with a screwdriver if it has a notch in it or if it don't turn the shaft anyway you can and make sure it turns easy. my shaft was tight as hell but i got it to turn and it started right up again and i had no problem. the hum means it is stuck and it shuts off because the breaker is tripping and after a few seconds it will click back on again, hope this helps

Pool pump is not working


The motor capacitor is bad. This usually means the motor is shot. It's hard to get capacitors for a quick fix

Motor hums then clicks off


Has the motor seemed a little slower in starting than usual? If so then you probably have a weak or defective motor capacitor. Try switching out with a new one.They are inexpensive.Try to turn the motor shaft at rear (under end cap) while it attempts to start. If the motor kicks on then replace capacitor.
