So first off, new to these forums, but anxious to do a lot of reading for my pool needs!
So this post is actually for my neighbors pool, which currently is disgustingly green and filthy. But I digress.
So she within the past two-three months got a whole new setup to include pump, sand filter, etc. Same old pool and lines of course. It has been working fine, no issues aside from not making the pool instant crystal clear (joke!) until yesterday. She turned it off (only switch is the breaker) to backwash the filter just to keep it clean, and when she went to turn it back on, it hummed for a few seconds and cut off. I went over today and inquired why it was off, got that story. I tried myself and got the same result, noticing that it trips the breaker. I took off the back and checked the wiring to make sure everything was connected correctly and not corroded, no issues. I then tested the capacitor and that was fine. I won't lie, I'm no pro when it comes to pumps, so not sure what to do next, however I'm good with electronics and mechanicals with a bit of direction. What I do know has been learnt on the fly. Everything seems to be in fine working order, and it was working fine just a few days ago so not sure what is up. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Edit: Forgot to note, the pump is a Hayward Super Pump Model: C48K2N143B1
