Hello all,

I have a jandy 2.0 SHPF 2-speed pump that started tripping the breaker on high speed. It ran for several hours yesterday on low speed but instantly shut off when switched to high. I did notice the motor was fairly hot to touch. Today, it will run on low speed but takes an abnormally long time to prime. When I switched from low to high, it ran for a couple seconds and shut off. It also tripped the breaker, which now has gone bad. The pump is run by an Intermatic timer.
Any ideas?

Well I removed the pump from motor and found the impeller to be clear of debris. The shaft also turns easily. From what I’m finding online, the capacitor could be the issue. Any way to tell if it is bad?
