Try find a dealer nearby. You can have the motor repaired.

According to this pool volume calculator your pool has nearly 16,000 gallons. A 2 hp pump seems like overkill for your pool. A smaller pump would move the water fast enough, but you already have the filter so the same size replacement would be advisable.
