I came home the other day and noticed the pool pump was off. The pump is a 1 HP Centurion. I checked all the switches and electrical...everything was okay. I started to take apart to pump to check if the impeller was moveable, but when I touched the motor it was HOTTER than **** (hot enough that when water dripped on it steam rose). Anyways, the impeller does not move. I assume the motor is seized...is this correct?
Also, if I were to buy a new pump, do I need to get the same HP, voltage, etc.?
