the last couple times I have used it it has a steady stream of water coming out however, the water seems to be mutch hotter than usual. Also when I shut the motor off just after it has run I hear a steam/sizzle sound and am worried that it is running too hot. Has anyone had this happen to them or have an idea what this might be.

Thanks

if I remember correctly the water stream is before the

Theromstat,

also the age tells me that the thermostat might not be working correctly, Is the head hot to touch??

If it is I would replace it, if you want to test the thermostat

just pull it out before you go and use it, it will not hurt the motor with it out for awhile

But remember run it in water to test so not to burn the impeller up.

By the way when was the impeller changed out??

Good Luck

Its hot if its your hear a steam sizzle. If its pumping water I'd also pull the thermostat. Look for debris clogging it. If it looks clear test it in hot water. You'll need a thermometer. Anything around 140 degrees is good.

I should do an impeller change as well. have not done it for about 5 yrs so its probably due. however it still has a good stream. The head is hot to the touch as well. I have never done a thermostat replacement. where is it even located and also is it just a thermostat or do I need to replace gaskets etc. as well

Can you get me the model number of your motor? If so, I can post a exploded view.

is the model number on the motor somewhere like a car has a vin number on the driver side? I will take a look tomorrow when I get home from work. Thanks everyone and thanks marine man that will be great if I can find a model number

The thermostat is located on the head. You'll find a plate with the serial and model number located on the side of the motor bracket.

Frank is right, it's on the head. I think it's toward the lower end of the head, but I can get you a better feel for it with the model number.

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
