Looked out on the deck today and the pump was not running this morning.
OK, checked breaker and voltages, they are fine.
Put the breaker back inline and switched the timer on...
I hear a "buzz" from the pump for like 15 seconds and it quits.
What's the most likely culprit in the pump?
Could a run capacitor do this?
Or is the PUMP burnt and needs rebuild?
The skimmer basket is clean.
Only issues with the system are that I've had some air in the skimmer for a while and I have not tracked it down yet. It has always pulled prime well. Was pumping fine yesterday. The pump basket was full of water when I looked at it. The pool level is fine. The pump has not been making any funny noises.
I just bought the Pool/House 2 months ago.
That makes it a Double ****TASTIC!
I'm going to try and locate a pump repair place today.
Is the big bulge on the side a CAP?
Could that cause it just to go buzz and shut down?
