Thread: Sundance Optima Motor problem

2-speed jet pump motor does not operate. There is a humming sound but pump will not start. I see what looks like corosion on the outside of the motor housing,Perhaps moisture has shorted out the inner motor controls. Can motor be rebuilt instead of total replacement? All other pumps are working fine. There is no problem with the flo switch. Thanks for you advice.

hi there. you should be able to rebuild almost any motor. if its humming and not turning on then the bearings may be seized. (rusted). i would check if you can turn the impeller by hand, (power off!), if it wont move, this is your issue. the seal in the back of the wet end may have failed, allowing water to pass through onto the pump. otherwise the capacitor may have blown. easy enough to find the replacement parts in any spa service centre or online. hope this helps!
