My 16 year old pump died and I'm hoping it's just the capacitor. I am trying to take apart an AO Smith s48b74a03...specifically the back housing (unsure this is the correct term) where the electrical comes in.. This is part of an AquaTools pump/filter.
I took the four long bolts off the back (2 on top, 2 on the bottom).
I pried the the back housing off a bit and it spins a little (a few inches in each direction) but it will not come off. It seems like something is still holding it in place.
I am applying a lot of force with various tools. Any tricks to this?
Thanks in advance.
