Some months ago the Forum helped me find a new motor, so I installed in with the usual new parts (impeller). I adjusted the impeller shims as best I could.
In the past couple of days it is giving a noise that sounds like something rubbing or grinding. Should not be bearings with the new old stock motor. Thinking impeller -- either something fell in there or maybe its "worn in" and now either falling or rising as it spins?
Took off the pump housing cover to look at it, and discovered the gasket that seals the upper & lower halves has STRETCHED !!! Its now at least an inch to large in diameter. How can this happen?
Seeing a little food gunk building up inside. But no bits of anything hard under the impeller.
