Starting yesterday morning, my Hayward Super Pump had trouble starting.
I was glad I was outside to notice the issue when the timer clicked on.
When the timer provides the electricity to the pump, it hums like it's trying to start up, but it never clicks over to actually start. I normally just stops humming.
I turned the power off and back on, and it proceeded to do the same thing.
I opened the housing to see if the impeller was clogged up, but it was not and it was spinning freely.
With the housing opened, the pump finally kicked on when testing.
So I closed it up and started it up. Worked fine all day.
This morning I went out when the timer kicked on, and the pump continued to do the same thing. Only hum, but not kick over to start. After a few attempts of turning the power off and on with the hum, then nothing, Hum then nothing, it finally kicked over and is running now.
Do you think this is a capacitor issue or something else?
Pump is about 3 years old. New when the pool was installed.
