Pentair VF pump, Model #011012, installed 7 years ago. Been an excellent purchase as power in SoCal is 38 cents a KwH.
This pump recently died. Flashing red error light with message "Overcurrent Error". When I reset the error, and press the "start/stop" button, the red flashing light comes on again immediately with the same error message. Same happens when I turn the circuit breaker off and on again and press the start button. There is no movement or noise from the motor. The impeller moves freely with my hand; there is no obstruction to the system rotating.
Okay, I look online. Most every post says the drive unit is defective. But when I call Pentair, the tech says the motor is faulty.
