Motors and Parts
The pool pump and motor are a big deal in the world of swimming pool and spa equipment. They work together, but they have entirely different parts. The pool pump creates the movement of water. The motor is allowing the pump to do its work. If a pump loses its prime, the motor has a high chance of overheating, thereby degrading its quality and that of the pump.
People usually learn about the pool motor and its parts when something stops functioning. Motors can get drenched because of heavy rain. It will also get ruined is a pipe suddenly breaks.
If the motor does not start when it’s supposed to be starting, one of the usual causes is that the wires have loose connections to the motor or dirty. It is important to regularly clean the wires to allow the smooth flow of electricity.
If the motor still does not run, but it is "humming," then either the capacitor is bad, or the impeller is jammed. When you spin the shaft, but it won't turn freely, then you must clear what obstructs the pump when you open it. When you spin the shaft and it turns freely, you must check or replace the capacitor.
