Question about Goulds Pumps Goulds 1/3 Hp 115V 1 Phase Sump Pump 3/8" Solids
My water pump was submerged because of floodand when i turned on the switch there was short circuit then smoke came out of the pump. Would you say the motor got surely burned or will the capacitor be affected first and cut off the electric supply due to short circuit thereby preventing damage to the motor?
The easiest way to be sure is to meter the cord and see if you have 5-10 ohms across the lines and infinite resistance on each to the ground prong. You are better served to use a high output voltage tester as compared to a small hand-held 9 volt meter for testing grounds. It is likley the motor is shot though and the unit will need to be replaced.
