    Need help with my Intex pump

    I have Intex sand filter model SF15110. Last two weeks it made noise so loud when running. Last few days, it died, no running. My wife told me it was humming but no running, then died

    I buy new bearing and replace the bearing. Put the pump back. When I turn on, it makes noise but the impeller doesn't turn. I have to turn it myself and it runs smoothly after that. I started on/of few times. Same thing, I have to give it initial start to make it runs. What is the cause? Capacitor?

    Then disassemble it, check, put it back. Now this time only noise but no running even I turn it???

    Those symptoms sound like a capacitor problem, but I don't know anything about Intex pumps, so I can't really help further.
