    Intex SF15110 motor problrm

    1.) Is there an easy way to troubleshoot why the motor suddenly stopped working? 2.) Where can I buy a new Intex SF15110? The Intex website says they are out of stock.

    More than likely the bearing are shot. It cost me 5$ on ebay for a new set and a small bit of time changing the bearings. Its not hard but its not for people that have no mechanical skill. I have been working on getting up a tutorial on changing the bearings in the Intex pumps. I have the pics but not the time. Hopefully soon I can get it written up. My kids are hogs and eat up all my time lol but I love the little buggers.

    edit: Was it running louder than usual before it died? When my bearings went it got louder and louder for a few days then just cut out completely and wouldn't do nothing. After replacing the bearings it runs quieter and seems to have way better flow rate.

    I did not notice it running louder. This is the first season for the motor. It had shut itself off a couple of times. It is in the sun and I thought it may be getting too hot. Could this cause it to go out?

    Also, does anyone know where I can buy one online?

    Amazon may have them in stock, check there.

    Your local Walmart may even have it.

    If it's first season it should still be under warranty.

    Mine got same symptom. It got louder for awhile now stop working. Opened it to check if it was capacitor or bearing. Now when I turn it on, it hums but the impeller wouldn't turn.

    How does the bearing look like and where to order it?
