My water filter pump just up and stopped today in mid cycle. Fortunately I was working in the yard and realized something wasn't quite right, and when I saw that my cleaning gizmo was still moving around and the booster pump was still going I knew something was up.
It did not trip the breaker, nor would it come back on. I tried again after a couple of hours had passed and it fired up just like always and w/o any oddball noises. I let it go for a bit and after 45 minutes or so it shut down again.
Any ideas of what's going on? It's a maxiglas or duraglass 1.5hp on a Sta-rite system. I believe it to be the original pump which would mark it 12 years old or so. I had to replace the booster pump about a year ago.
Maybe a bearing going bad in that it heats up and shuts down?
Any help appreciated!
