    Pentair 1hp pump quit

    As well as my light problem in another thread my pump is now acting up. Turned it off to switch sand filter to backwash and the pump would not restart. Not prime but I mean not turn back on. It sits for a few minutes and then clicks on by itself and then clicks off. It never actually starts. The motor housing is hot to the touch.

    Could be the start capacitor or the motor. A $10 part or $150 ish part.
