Before I start troubleshooting my problem, I'd like to have a starting point. I replaced the motor last year, so I would not consider it old. I usually run it 24/7 during the pool season and usually shut it off during the off season unless to pump it out after some heavy rains.
Just recently, I've noticed some delay when I turn the pump back on when I backwash. The last time I did this it seemed to be a little longer than before (maybe a second). Could this be the motor, or could it be something like the capacitor? I'm not much on troubleshooting electrical issues, but can get through it with good directions.
