I've been having a time with my pump motor as of late. I replaced the capacitor two days ago and thought I had revived it for another few months...I was sadly mistaken. This morning I noticed that my pool was not moving so I immediately went over to the pump; she's not running and the multiport valve was frozen. I leave it running during the winter to prevent frozen/cracked equipment and plumbing. I checked some things out, and got it running again. After a little bit of whinning and screaming while primimg itself, it got back to it normal running sound. A few hours later I was standing by the pump and heard a click and she hasn't run since. I'm trying to troubleshoot and repair the motor before having to fork out the money for a new one. This motor was put on in August of last year and I don't think I should be replacing a motor already.
Does anyone have any experiences with something similar or can pass any tips my way; they would be appreciated.
I WILL be draining the pump tonight to try and mitigate any damages.
