sand tank/pump combo problem

Postby shellroc » Thu 11 Apr, 2019 08:58

I have a SF80110 unit. If the pump shuts down, it wont start back up.. just hums. I have to pick up pump and bang it for it to work.. so, cant use timer...its been running 24/7 for a month now. I took a screwdriver and turned the impeller, and it works fine.. just cant shut off unit. any ideas?? I think I had a power surge one day, which may have caused the problem.

Probably the starting capacitor, certainly where I would go to first, easy and cheap to replace

You only need to remove the cover over the wiring, unless the capacitor is strapped to the outside it will be under the electric cover.
