Question about Hayward Pool & Spa
Your motor is what is termed as "locked up" This is a term to describe either a motor armature which will not spin because of a mechanical or electrical problem. Electrical issues can sometimes be easy to fix.
If the start capacitor is bad, it simply needs replaced in order to fix your problem. Most all pool pumps have a Start capacitor located in a small metal *** attached to the motor. You will either need to have a capcitance tester to see if the capacitor is bad, or buy one and replace it if you have money to burn.
I say that because the problem causing the hum could also be due to a mechancical failure, and not so easy to fix. If the bearings in the motor are run down, seazed or damaged, the motor will just hum and not pump. same result ( humming motor)... different reason. Most electricians or air conditioning or mechanical service companies could test the motor and suggest which repair is needed.
