    Pump &/or motor needs replaced

    Our pump was running for a couple days with low water levels and I'm sure air got in the pump. Pump was also on for a bit while lid to pump skimmer was not screed on. It is now making a very loud noise and seizes up. How can I tell if it is the pump motor or the bearings in the pump that need replaced?
    thank you!

    Pump/motor

    When buying a new pump does the motor come with it or do you have to buy that separately.
    thank you!

    First, the bearings are part of the motor. You can replace motor bearings if you have the tools and know how. You can also just replace the motor so you don't need to buy a new pump.

    And yes, new pumps come with the motor.

    You could pull the motor and pump apart. You may have melted the seal and impeller. I would take it all apart and check those.
