I turned my pump off after it has been running for well over 12hrs so I can clean out the baskets. When toggling the on/off switch to off it felt as if it was loose but it still toggles. Well after about 1 minute I turned it back on and nothing... no hum or noise so I thought the switch went bad and simply broke. I removed the back cover off the motor and inspected that the shaft spun freely which it does, then took the 2 wires to the on/off switch and manual connected the two, plugged it back in and it hummed for 3 seconds before popping the safety fuse on my outlet.
I checked continuity in the thermal cut off and it was good. I checked continuity from the plug thru the connected on/off switch wires, down thru the thermal cut off and right up to where the wires are wound up in the outer past of the motor.
I am at a loss here so any help would be appreciated, thanks
