    DE-3600's Pump is not starting

    Here is a short video of the issue...

    Essentially when I start my pump (or the timer trips on) it tries to start for about 10-15seconds, then stops, waits a minute or so, then tries again. Sometimes it starts after 3 or 4 tries, other times it takes an hour before it starts.

    I cannot read the label on the motor (probably original, and I bought the house 6mos ago). Any idea what is wrong? We do have a home warranty that covers the motor, but before I called them I wanted to make sure it wassn't something else.

    In all likelihood, it's a start capacitor or a dead motor, both replaceable.
