    Jandy Pump Won't Start

    I have an inground Jandy Magnum Force 1.5hp pump and I just hooked up the plumbing in my pool to open it. When I turn on the power all I hear is a loud humming noise from the pump. No water is pumping at all. I did prime the pump. I called the pool store and they said most likely the bearing on the pump are gone. Any clue on what the problem could be?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Sounds more like a capacitor problem to me ...

    With the power off, try turning the motor shaft/impeller by hand/wrench. If it turns freely, then the bearing may be fine and you may just have to check/replace the capacitor.
