Model 665.15969000. Motor/pump is seized - it hums instead of spraying water. Fills and drains OK
Took everything apart but I can't get the inlet cover off to peer at the impellor. I removed the screw but the cover won't budge. Is there a trick?

Just be persuasive and pull harder. Sometimes they get stuck on there pretty good.

Oh, and post and valid model number for more help. Model number help here:

Oops model number is 665.15939000. The cover came off and the chopper is wrecked but the pump still doesn't work. I guess that the next step is to remove the pump.

So the sump is part of the pump and motor assembly?

Yes I did but looking at the parts manual, I expected to see the pump and impellor only. The product photo in the link includes the sump. Does that mean that the impellor is somehow captive in the sump and therefore sump, impellor and motor have to be replaced as a unit?

For the additional three and half shekels, it's well worth the convenience. You may attempt to do it piece-meal and, when you get sick of wasting your time on it, go ahead and replace the whole damn assembly. You'll thank me later.

See? Already you've benefited from my vast and awesome experience. Lucky you.
