Pool Motor Repair ullerton CA, Pool Motor Replacement Fullerton CAPool Motor Repair and Replacement Fullerton CA

Pool, spa, fountain and stream pump motors come in a variety if sizes and configurations. When considering a replacement motor for a noisy, or completely seized electric motor, specifications from your existing motor are needed in order to obtain the correct replacement.

Due to the potential of electrical shock, motor and pump replacements should always be performed by a professional technician.

The following information is needed in order to match your replacement motor and can usually be found on a sticker or nameplate on the motor itself:

  • Horsepower rating (HP)
  • Operating voltage
  • Single or dual-speed
  • Frame type

Once a motor has been identified, it can be ordered. A technician can usually have a typical motor installed it in about an hour. Anytime a motor is separated from the pump housing assembly, a new “seal-kit” will be required and consists of gaskets, o-rings, washers and seals to prevent water leakage from the water pump side into the motor side.

Leaking seals are the number one cause of motor failure as leaking water will start to rust the bearings, which will then cause the motor to become noisy and get increasingly louder until the bearings finally seize from the friction. The electrical circuit breaker, or a GFI will usually trip and cannot be re-set under these conditions.


impellerNOTE: Once motor is separated from pump only then can another common failure be visible, which is the possibility of a damaged “impeller.” The impeller is the component that spins and forces water through the pump. It often encounters debris that gets past the pump basket causing damage in the form of cracks, chipping or clogging. During many motor replacements, is is often discovered that an impeller replacement is also required at an additional cost for this part.Another way impellers get damaged is if the pump at anytime had ran dry due to a low water level in the pool or spa, then impeller will warp from excessive heat and can no longer create a water-tight seal. Any damaged impeller should be replacement while the motor is apart to maintain efficiently and not cause damage to the new motor.

What is the difference between 48Y & 56Y?

Both have the same exact size square flange. The 56Y motor body diameter is 1/2″ larger than 48Y, so the 48Y usually includes a 1/2″ rubber spacer if required when mounting. Body diameter is the only difference, they can be inter-changed.
