Hello! So I've scoured these forums incognito for a very long time now . I usually find what I'm looking for and that's that... However, this time I'm stumped. A little bit of history: We just put a new liner in the pool, looks great, fire up the pump and after shooting out the cobwebs into the pool via the jets, it finally runs clear and all is well...except for the unusually loud pump. As 2 weeks go by, the pump gets progressively louder, I mean we couldn't even stand near it and yell above its noise. Then one night we hear a loud pop and it abruptly stops running. So I jump online and begin troubleshooting. After 4 snapped bolts (the long skinny ones), an immobile fused bolt that holds the housing around one of the bearings, a fight to the near death to get the other bearing off the exposed shaft and replaced, a new capacitor, and a good rust removal brush down, I still ended up with a dead pump motor !! SOOO I decide to go ahead to a motor repairer of sorts and he quoted me 75% the cost of a new motor yet only wanted to replace the bearing I replaced, heat and remove the infused bolt for the other bearing, and put 4 new bolts... as if I didn't know these parts cost no more than $15 total. Well being the motor was in really bad shape as it was overall and I probably would've brushed right through it trying to remove the rust that ate most of it up already, I decide to buy a new motor! I get it installed and it just hums/buzzes very quietly, sounds like a high voltage wire, but with no impeller or motor movement . We then had a low voltage problem at the pool house breaker, so fix that and my back yard lights up *yay*, but still no-go with the pump. I get on here and troubleshoot and find everything that may be correct, but seems irrelevant to my situation hence my joining and posting this. My impeller spins, seals are good, power source good, the whole 9. I don't know what else to try or how else to look it up . I'm surprised I've been able to keep my pool maintained enough that I can still see the details on the bottom 8 feet down, but I'm dying over here. Please help!
