Pump worked then stopped?

Postby prizepoet » Mon 19 May, 2008 16:39

I started my pump for the first time this yr, it was fine, I added DE, it went in fine, then I noticed the return valve was turned on its side, water was coming out OK, but I shut the pump to fix it, turned pump back on and now it just hums, no other action is taking place, what does that mean? Is it burned out? :oops:

Sounds like the pump is locked up. You may be able to free it up by turn the armature over by hand and then powering the pump back up.
