My pool pump stopped working today. It just stopped. The case was very hot. So I turned it off, left it for an hour, and turned it back on. It's still hot, but it was running normally. The only thing I can think of is that the solar panel valve is automatic, and turns on and off based on the Jandy controls. Maybe it turned on and the pump could not force the air out of the solar panels. The pump is a StaRite 1.5 HP. I is probably 4-5 years old. As it just so happens, today is the first day I ran the pump for a constant 9 hours instead of 2 different 3 hour shifts. However, I have run this pump continuously for 24 hours, as recently as 3 days ago, without any problem (that I know of). Any thoughts about what to watch out for? Does this mean my pump is going?
