I have a 6 year old Jandy Stealth e Pump Variable speed pump (2 HP). Model # is JEP 2.0. I think it lost prime this past Monday, but I'm not sure since I leave for work before it comes on and am back home by the time it cycles off. I have it programmed through the remote. I was off on Wednesday and noticed that at 7:05 am my pool was not running and it is supposed to come on at 7 am. I turned everything off because it was raining. Went out yesterday morning to try to regain prime which I do by forcing water uphill to the pump. Noticed I had no suction at the skimmer, and that skimmer was closed. Opened it up. Still no prime. So I went up to my equipment and my pump was not running at all. It is not making any noise at all, not even a hum. Switched it off and on at the box==nothing. Then, my breaker tripped. Switched those back and still nothing. There is power because I can get my waterfall pump to come on by using the remote and pushing the button at the box. My remote reads, " Jandy e pump offline."
Any ideas anyone? My pool guy is out of town, and he says I need to replace the entire pump which will be around $1200. I'm thinking something has shorted out and I would certainly like to save some money and not replace the entire pump.
