I have a hayward 1 hp pool pump I bought it in april and the stupid thing quit working already! It hums then cuts out. I call the local pool suplier that I bought it from they said it was the start capasitor so they sold me a new one.(so much for having any type of warrenty right?!) put it on and still does not work.The motor turns freely so now what? The only thing I can figure is maybe I got wires mixed up switching them.does any one know how they go for sure? because if that is not what is wrong guess I have to get ready for a war with them to get them to warrenty the darn thing!
