No power

Hi there! I have no power to my pump or salt cell. I have checked breakers and gfi's. When I reset the breaker I heard a hum from the intermatic timer, but nothing happens when I flip the switch on. I have not tested the actual power to the timer, but wondering if the pump would still turn on manually by the switch if the timer itself was bad. I know this probably seems like a silly question, but I dont want to attempt the replacement of the timer if it seems I may have another issue going on. I know there is power going to the area as I have a plug beneath the breaker that is working by charging my phone.

Tell us about your system. Or post some pictures.

What brand and model of pump.

Off the top of my head it's a bad capacitor on the pump.
