I'm having some issues my pump. It was purchased new last season and worked fine all season. This year it started up fine and ran for a couple of days to start the cleaning process. When I shut it off to clean out the strainer basket it came on for a less than a minute, did not seem to pull any water into it and shut off. I did put the strained in backwards.
After a day I went out to poke around and see if there was anything I could figure out. I switched it on and it started right away and worked for 24 hours, as near as I can tell it did not shut down at all and restart. I cleaned out the strainer basket and put it back CORRECTLY and it reverted to the same behavior of turning off after less than a minute or so. I do not think it is electrical, which is what most often gets referenced. Any suggestions on troubleshooting steps?
