Hi
I have the standard amw 102 skimmer that stopped working today so i opened the pump...the fault is the impeller is fighting to tight inside. The pump still works just that the impeller is jamming. Theres no detrious or sand jamming it.

are there fine cracks on the impeller?
Maybe swelling due to rust.

yip, rather replace.

Else it will scratch away the inside of the motor block until it starts to leak electricity and trip the house power. If it does not shock you wide awake first.
