Had my pool/pump off for about a couple weeks. Went to turn it back on so I could close it for the season and now the pump is tripping the circuit breaker when it comes on. Using an ohm meter I was able to find that the motor is shorting (touching the hot and ground shows continuity). This is the second time I had this pump serviced, the first time for some seals or something. Its only about 5 years old.
When pumps short out, does that mean their done? Would it be worth having this one repaired again?
EDIT: Just talked to a motor repair place and apparently there's SUPPOSED to be continuity between hot and neutral, like a light bulb.
