OK. I'm pretty sure that the bearings on my pump motor are going out. The motor just started screaming. The motor is a 1 HP Regal Beloit EPC. Is this an easy repair? I'm fairly handy with tools. I do most of my own vehicle repair and maintenance. I found an article on replacing the bearings on a Hayward Super Pump that indicated that the bearings must be pressed on and off. I don't have such a press. If this is needed, do I need to go to a pool store or a machine shop? Is the press something special unique to pool pumps?
Or would I be better off just replacing the motor?
