When I got home today at 4pm, my wife tells me the water is not moving in the pool like normal. Upon inspection, pump running and no water movement in the view window of the pump filter. Remove filter cover and smoke escaped, water inside hot (did have direct sun exposure). Primed the filter housing with water hose and covered. Resumed pump and took about 10min for pump to prime up and start. Stopped pump, switched to backwash and restarted. Backwashed till clear and then cycled off and switched to Rinse for 90 sec. Cycled pump and returned to filter and resumed pump. Quickley established prime and resumed pumping. Worried my main pump going out! Copying and pasting this message to appropriate topic, once I find it.
