I am trying to get the brown impeller piece loose so I can remove the housing to replace the back seal on the housing. I have removed the SS chopper and all the rings. The brown impeller seems to be really stuck. Other than breaking it to get it off the shaft is there and easier way? A new one is in the kit I ordered.
ANSWER Brian, You do have the motor and impeller assembly separated from the sump, and you are holding the motor shaft with a wrench or pair of pliers and turning the impeller in a counterclockwise direction to unscrew it off the motor shaft " Hold motor shaft and remove the old impeller by turning counterclockwise and discard." If that doesn't work, then yes, you'll need to break or cut it off the shaft. Good Luck and Thanks
