I just opened my pool today and when I went to start up my Hayward SP2607x10 pump and my A O Smith 1HP motor model C48K2N143B1 motor set at 230 volts, did a flash at the rear of the motor and tripped both breakers.
I checked all three wires going into the motor and don't have continuity between them-so the motor is actually good-right ?
Recommendations appreciated for my next step.
I wouldn't be adverse to a new two speed pump if that's a good solution, but I took the cover off the pool and I've got a lot of green water about to start going bad. I will drop a pump in for circulation and add some bleach for now....
Advice please !
