9 Reasons for Water Motor Malfunction

9 Reasons for Water Motor Malfunction

    A water motor or pump is a machine used to pump water with great force and move it from one place to another through a system of pipes, or to move water to upper floors inside buildings or wells; To save water in a short time, the pump relies on two water lines to perform its function; The first is to draw water to the pump, and the other is to pump it out of the pump. Water pumps use electricity or gas in their work. It is worth mentioning that there are many types of water pumps that vary in price according to their type, and these pumps may be exposed time to malfunctions that cause The water pump stopped, and this article explains the causes of the water motor malfunction, and how to fix these malfunctions.

9 Reasons for Water Motor Malfunction
9 Reasons for Water Motor Malfunction

1. Hyperthermia

    The high temperature of the water pump is one of the most common causes of its malfunctions, as the pumps depend in their work on generating heat by themselves, which causes an increase in heat, and every ten additional degrees of heat causes a reduction in the life span of the pump motor, and this problem can be solved by maintaining At the right temperature for as long as possible, which leads to extended engine life.

2. Dust and dirt

    The pump motor is capable of drawing dust, dirt, and small particles when it is running, which leads to damage to the pump, and the occurrence of a malfunction inside it according to the size and type of dirt stuck to it, and these malfunctions include the following:
  • Sand and dust particles can corrode engine parts by interacting with electrical currents as they move through the pump.
  • Dust and dirt particles can clog the engine inlets and vents, causing the engine to overheat, so it's important to work to protect the engine from dust and dirt and prevent it from getting into the pump.

3. Malfunction of the power supply

    The rate of pumping electricity causes harmonious currents, but any pumping malfunction can cause current and voltage imbalances inside the pump, resulting in overheating and load, shortening the life of the motor, completely disabling it over time, or causing problems and malfunctions Others are for the pump, so it is important to take care to properly and correctly regulate the power delivered to the pump.

4. Humidity

    High humidity in the air can lead to malfunction and failure of the pump motor over time, causing wear of the motor parts, due to moisture mixing with sand and dust particles accumulated inside it, thus reducing the life of the motor.

5. Wrong lubrication

    Wrong lubrication of the pump motor is one of the things that cause a pump malfunction, as excessive lubrication of the motor causes the pump cover to swell while reducing lubrication causes wear of the engine parts, so care must be taken to lubricate the motor correctly, and choose the right type of oil for lubrication Make sure the lubricant remains clean and free of dirt and dust.

6. Low water level

    The low water level inside the pump leads to failure to withdraw the required amount of water, and thus a malfunction in the water pump when it is running for long periods, which causes accelerated damage to the motor and pump, in addition to the dryness of the rubber belt that prevents water leakage, which leads to water leakage. To the motor, reversing the rotation of the pump when connected incorrectly can cause low amounts of water to be pumped, causing the pump to fail.

7. The connection cable is damaged

    Damage to the external cable may damage the internal cable of the pump, causing it to stop working. A cracked or torn cable can damage the seal, and thus easily break the rubber seal.

8. Low voltage

    Water pumps need a good voltage connected to the motor cables, and low power voltage is one of the most important causes of water pump malfunctions, and the problem of low voltage occurs as a result of shrinking cables, or due to a fault in the utility network that supplies voltage to the pump, and the problem mainly occurs when using a small cable This causes the lead resistance to rise, and thus the voltage in the motor terminals drops, which causes the motor to overheat and eventually malfunction, and this problem can be avoided by using large cables to supply sufficient voltage to run the motor, without causing Pump or motor malfunctions.

9. Malfunction of engine seals

    The seals in the pump motor shaft prevent water from entering the engine, and this prevents dirt, dust, and small particles from rubbing inside, and helps control the pH of acids and salt levels, to prevent any corrosion inside the engine parts, these seals are usually made of a material Carbon, ceramic or silicon and any defect or damage to these seals leads to water leakage into the engine and thus causes damage to the pump and its failure.
