Electrical repairs can be hazardous or fatal if done improperly – always refer electrical repairs to a professional. There are several reasons a pump won’t ‘spin’, they are:
- The starting capacitor has failed.
- The start switch has failed or is fouled.
- A damaged pump seal has allowed water into the motor which has caused the bearings to fail.
- The stator or armature windings have burnt out
- The pump impeller is bound and can’t spin.
