    How to free up shaft on pool motor

    Just an update. I had my dad come over and check the impeller from the basket first again — he couldn’t get it to move either even with a screwdriver. So we took the back cover off and tried to get the shaft to move with a 7/16” wrench. It wouldn’t budge. I’m not sure what to do at this point...

    How to free up shaft on pool motor

    I see from the video where to take off to access the capacitor and shaft. I’m going to try to unstick the shaft first since that is what was wrong last time.

    How to free up shaft on pool motor

    Are you talking about the four bolts on the back of it, behind the basket? I’m trying to figure out what cover / where I need to take off. There is a cover over the metal part at the end (cylinder looking) and then the part that it attaches to where the basket is

    How to free up shaft on pool motor

    How to free up shaft on pool motor

    It’s a Hayward century. Last time the guy said the shaft was just stuck, so I’d like to try just to unstick it if possible. Not sure how to replace a capacitor.

    How to free up shaft on pool motor

    Hi all! It’s going to get down to 22 degrees tonight (and will be that low for the next 3 days), and my pool is not able to winterized. We usually just run the pump if it gets below freezing. However in November we went to turn on the pump and the motor just hummed and would not kick on. I...

    Pool leak help / advice (only leaks when cold / pump not running)

    This is what I'm worried about. It's lost so much water already. I just don't see how it can be leaking ONLY in the winter and ONLY when the pump isn't on. It continued to leak after the holes were initially patched, which makes me think it's not a tear in the liner. But what else could it be? I...

    Thanks, I will ask them. So do you think wait until spring or have them come out soon?

    Pool leak help / advice (only leaks when cold / pump not running)

    Hi all I posted this same issue last year. Long story short our pool leaks, but only in the winter time when we aren't running the pump. IT leaked like this last winter, but once we started it up for the spring / summer, we had absolutely no issues with leaking or water level. We closed the pool...

    Pool leaking only when cold & pump is off

    Vinyl liner. They patched it last December. It was two small holes. The lowest we let it get was about 3.5 ft below normal. That’s when they did the leak detections. Should we pay for someone else to do ANOTHER leak detection? The same problem the next year makes me think it’s not the liner..
