Came home today from work and my pump was not running. I went to look at it, flipped the switch off and back on and nothing. Felt the pump and it was very hot, I couldn't keep my hand on it for longer than 4 to 5 secs. We had a storm today and I know that that there were power issues in my area, which from what I have read could have lead to it over heating. I have read that some pool pumps power off when getting to hot, does anyone know if all pool pumps are designed this way. I have a very old pump and it has been running like a champ 20 to 24hrs per day for the last month with no issues.
