Hi, try replacing the capacitor, like for like in the connection box on the pump, usually this sorts the problem as the capacitor is mainly used in the motor starting process.

Hotub clicks and then makes buzzing noise when turned on.

does it blow a breaker? check to see what is going on by unplugging all the pumps, blowers lights and anything else plugged into the circuit board (heater too)
turn the breaker on once everything is unplugged and then proceed to turn the spa off, plug one item back in and turn the breaker back on.
Do this until you find the buzzing....

You may actually have a back relay on the circuit board causing the buzzing by not latching in when the pump or something is trying to come on.

If your pool pump is acting sluggish it may simply be a build up of debris inside the impeller. Cleaning it is simple if you know how.
Step 1 - Check the Impeller

You can check the impeller for clogs by opening the clear cover that is on the strainer basket. Then place your garden hose into the basket and turn it on high. The water should disappear immediately. If it does not, you may have a clog.
Step 2 - Turn off the Power to the Pump

Before actually removing the clog from your pool pump impeller you will need to turn off the power to it. Remove the basket and use a finger to reach into the hole behind the basket to feel for any debris. If it is clogged, go to step 3.
Step 3 - Disconnect the Pump and Motor

Disconnect the pump and motor from the plumbing. Depending upon the make and model of your pool pump you may be able to skip this step. The motor usually just slides away from the pump.
Step 4 - Remove the Plastic Cover

Take the pump apart by removing the plastic cover over the motor. This cover generally has several small screws holding it on.
Step 5 - Remove and Clean the Impeller

Once the cover is removed you will easily be able to see the clog in the pool pump impeller. Just use your fingers or a coat hanger to clean it out.
Step 6 - Clean

Put everything back together. Once you have it cleaned out you can put the cover back on and put it all back together. Problem solved.

GE Freezer Not Freezing

I am not an expert, but if the defrost heater is not working, then maybe when it was unpluged the coils didn't completly unthaw. If not, the freezer still will not cool properly.

It is plugged but how Do i un plug it

I assume the machine is not draining. Most of the time the obstruction is in the pump itself. UNPLUG POWER CORD. THIS IS A MESSY REPAIR unless you can get the machine outside and drain the water. There are two different pump configurations on these machines. You will need to lean the machine back against the wall so you can remove the bottom panel to get to the pump. There are 3 screws holding it at front of machine. If your machine has the pump that is held on to the motor with 2 metal clips, you can remove the clips and hoses and remove pump. Look in pump inlet and outlet and see if you can see the restriction and remove it with needle nose pliers. Most of the time this type of pump is beyond help and must be replaced with the newer style. About $300 to have this done by professional. If you have the newer pump, it will be part of the motor. You can remove the hoses and three screws that hold housing to motor. Be sure you don't lose or damage rubber seal on housing. After you clean pump, clean and dry seal area and reinstall housing and hoses. It will usually seal back with no problem. You may have a restriction in sump of tub going to pump. Sometimes it can be cleaned from rear of machine, if not, the basket will have to be removed. Depending on age and condition of machine this can be simple or very expensive. If basket is frozen to basket drive, you can replace machine cheaper than replacing basket and drive.
