You either have a bad start capacitor, bad bearings, or bad wiring. make sure all the wiring is tight, make sure the motor spins freely, and check the capacitor for leakage or "bloating".
In rare occasions, the motor windings can develop a direct short and cause the breaker to immediately trip.

DIRTY START switch or the motor is locked up, breaker off ! remove motor from tank body and see if the motor will turn over if it does could be the switch or the motor is shorted witch there is no fix but a new or rebuilt motor. search your area for your local pool pump motor repair guy with free testing..

I have a A O Smith SN 1152 pool pump. The motor just hums when the switch is turned on. The pump is eight years old and I have had no problems until now.


Remove the 4 fasteners that hold the pump head onto the motor and try to turn the motor shaft by hand. If it turns freely, apply power and see what happens. If it turns Ok, then your problem is the pump head not the motor. If the motor does not turn by hand then it needs to be replaced. If it turns by hand but not when power is applied, you may get away with replacing the bearing in it.
