Pool motor not working

Hello mgh4,

Have you checked the obvious things - Breakers, GFI's, things like that? Have you checked inside the pump for any obstructions? If you just finished vacuuming the pool, it's possible something got sucked into the pump and caused it to shut off.

It's odd for a motor to die at 1 year old without making some kind of noise.

On a good note, if the pump is only a year old, the motor might still be under warranty.
