Question about Pool & Spa
Being you have replaced the o-ring I would say to make sure you purchased the right o-ring the Northstar pump calls for there are 3 listed for it part #'s SPX4000S there is not a hair line crack in the lid itself if this checks I would suggest buying a tube of Jacks Lube take the o-ring off put a small amount of lube on it this will help it seal a little better

Check that the motor is set for the proper voltage. They are usually factory connected for 230V and if you have a 115V line feeding it the motor will overheat and cycle the overload as you describe.

If you have a crack in your basket you may have a clogged impeller. With the power off reach back into the pump through the pump pot with a long screwdriver and feel around. If it feels spongey it there you have a clog. Take the serew driver an use an oceleting motion in a counter clockwise direction this should loosen the clog then reach in with a long set of thin pliers and pull the clog out. This should fix your problem and once water is flowing your pump should quiet down.

SOURCE: Heat pump will not start
Could be a firmware issue and require a new mother board. Unfortunately, you probably have done all you can on your own. Time to call the local HVAC service person...

I think your impeller may be stuck OR your start capacitor has failed. Your pump is going off on over load because it cannot turn or cannot start.
