SOURCE: powerflo matrix pump is humming not pumping

I think you have a start/run capacitor issue or your impeller has spun its center out. Check the impeller first. If the impeller is intact, take your motor to your full service pool professional for repair.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

It is likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.

If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.

As a rule it is not worth 'rewiring' these motors as the cost to replace them is so low.

SOURCE: do hayward powerflo lx motors

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


No, your model number starts with 's' which means it is a split phase design; no capacitors are present in a split phase motor. If the motor is failing to start and just hums the only part that you can replace that MAY be the problem is the internal starting switch. If the switch is not the issue it is the winding itself and not worth fixing.

magic lube and new o-ring. now put just a small amount on the o-ring and a little on the treads of the lid, do not over tighten ! that's the trick, the lube makes the lid over tighten,so just hand tight, take a marker and mark the lid so you know the perfect spot ever time you put it back on where to stop

Keep trying - It is stuck and will likely break but you have to remove it to change the seal. It is not uncommon to need to replace the impeller when the seal fails since the water gets behind the impeller shaft and rusts the metal causing the impeller to bind. If you still cannot get it free pull the motor thru-bolts and lock the rotor once removed from the motor in a vice. Use a large pair of channel locks to break the impeller free...replace it if necessary.

Hayward pool pumps


The impeller on this Hayward pump unthreads counter clockwise.
Take a big flat head screw driver and put it on the center shaft on the back of the motor to hold the shaft solid while you unthread the impeller.

Remove impellersp1592


Assuming power is disconnected and pump freed from hoses,:
Pull the clip out from inside the basket housing. The entire housing comes off.
Open the cover at the power end, and
Put a large screwdriver into the slot on the end of the shaft.
Holding screwdriver in one hand unscrew the impeller by hand with the other.
If it is too hard, you will need a special tool that won't damage the impeller.

Tryiing to replace motor cannot get diffuser and seal plate free how do they come apart


First remove bolts holding motor to wet end. Pull motor back and out of wet end. Diffuser should just fall off. Not held by anything, there are just some locating tabs. Next, unscrew impeller. Some impellers may have a screw holding it on to center shaft. If so, unscrew.(Backwards thread). Remove back cover on motor and hold centershaft with large screwdriver or wrench on flat of shaft. Unscrew impeller. Next, unscrew 4 bolts holding motor to seal plate.

It is likely a motor failure. You may be able to take it to a local electric motor repair shop but most of those motors are not economical to repair. You can replace the motor and pump seal for far less than the whole pump. If you would like a quote on the parts, try us at www.arrowpools.net

Water keeps coming out from under the lid of the pump


Replace the O-ring/re-lube it, if that doesn't work the actually strainer assembly may be warped, those come undone with the clip under the basket and just pop off - they are between $80-$100.

Can't get motor and impeller assembly off pump


The impeller unthreads counter clockwise off the shaft of the motor. on the back of the motor under a plug or the plastic cap there is the shaft of the motor with a slot for a standard screwdriver. put the biggest screwdriver you can find in there and turn on the impeller as hard as you can. After some years the impeller can get rusted onto the threads of the shaft and you will need to break it to get it off. (sometimes they just don't come off)
