Hello everyone! I recently moved and am now a first time pool owner.
Yesterday, I was backwashing my pool pump for the first time since I've moved in. I realized a part of the hose was caught and water was not getting through so I immediately turned off my pump. Untangling everything finally, I turned on the pool pump and found that it would not turn on.
Everything is stored inside a small shed. The switch for my pump would not stay up in its ON position like usual, I would flip it up and it would automatically flip back down. The light switches for the shed and pool however, would turn on fine. I reset the breaker and same thing, pool pump switch doesn't work, but lights are just fine. Any ideas what might be going on?
I have a centurion switchless motor pool pump.
Thank you, I really appreciate your help!
Edit: Here are some pictures. The pump switch is on the right on the wall. The GFCI outlet (left) is working (plugged in my phone charger).
