Pull the lid and strainer basket off your pump and reach in (electricity will be off at this point) and make sure that the pump inlet isn't blocked with debris from the storm... small stuff can get thru the strainer and jam up the pump motor... I know...i've got the pool from hell ...constantly jamming the pump...but it's next to a huge evergreen tree...
after you get the debris out, take a crescent wrench and remove the cap off the motor shaft on the outside of the pump. Turn that shaft with a wrench back and forth to free up the motor and dislodge the debris... if it frees up, put it all back together and turn the power on...you may have to repeat this process a coupe of times to completely clean the impellers in the pump.... good luck!

These pumps should not be hooked into an intermatic mechanical timer. It should always have power supplied to it, meaning it should be installed to the line side of the power supply. Scheduling is done either in pump itself or thru an external controller such as a suntouch or easytouch controller, etc. When you have it wired into a timer like intermatic, power is interupted to the pump every day when the timer setting is for off. It is very hard on the drive of this pump, it does not like it, and will shorten the life of the drive. The pump was designed to always have power supplied to it, even when it is not scheduled to run. This may be the problem you are experiencing. HTH

88 It is the Setup/Start up Code. it is displayed until you set the timer. which you do so by holding down the down arrow till you hear a beep, then hold down the up arrow till you here a beep. from there you can set the time and then to lock it in repeat the process. On the filter set it to run atleast 1 hour longer than you SWS. set the timer on both at the same time.
