Pump Motor Bearings
Pool Pump Motor Bearings, front and rear, on the shaft of the motor's rotor, keep the rotor rotating within the stator of the motor very smoothly and precisely. These bearing races are sealed and non-serviceable. Replace when they begin to squeak and squeal.
Pool Motor Bearing Replacement Tips:
- Replace your Bearings when the noise level exceeds your tolerance level
- Replace your old motor bearings with the exact match bearing size (see chart above)
- Measure the inside diameter and/or look for stamped markings on existing bearings (open motor)
