Howdy all, new to the forum and need a bit of advice before the next freeze sets in.
Our 1 yr old pool pump recently went Tango Uniform...motor will kick on, hum for about 10 secs, then kick back off. As it tries to start, water does swirl in the strainer but only 10% of normal strength & speed, very weak. So far I have checked impeller and pipes for clogs (none found), motor shaft spins freely and quietly. It does not trip breakers, shows correct voltage on both sides of the breakers, the timer/on off switch, and at the motor itself. All contacts were clean. Replaced the capacitor with an identically rated replacement without change in condition. Does anyone have other trouble shooting ideas before I bite the bullet on a new motor?
Thanks in advance
