Hi James,What was done recently?
What wiring was done?
Looks like a low voltage problem.
The switch looks like is it not fully engaging.
Thanks James. Can you tell me what you think is happening in the first YouTube video I posted? The switch is in the off position and when I move it to the on position the first couple of times, the motor does not kick in. On the third attempt it kicks in. You can also see the copper wire that is now bonding the pump to the heater to the switch as well.Seems like it's an electrical issue.
It looks like the switch is not working correctly and the pump is not getting the full voltage.
Yes, it was in the “on position” but not fully. Almost like a circuit breaker that has been partially tripped. A slight touch up and it kicks back on. That is the way I have been finding it when it shuts down on its own.^^^ That second video looks like the switch is in the ON position but doesn't turn on until you give it a tap. Those sealed switch enclosures sometimes do that.
