Question about Pool & Spa
Have an irrigation pump used to pull lake water that failed last fall. Recently replaced the impeller and seals, put everything back together and the motor shaft turns freely. When power is turned on, the motor hums for a few seconds, does NOT spin on it's own, and then a small puff of smoke accompanies the motor shutting off. Any ideas? Thanks
