If you have current and a ground, power wise your fine. You need to check and make sure there is no clogs in the lines causing the pump to fail. If you have no clogs and the pump sounds like it is trying to work, it probablly is seized up and needs replaced.

Pool pump making a buzzing sound when the power is turned on . pump will not run.electrical breaker pops when i turn it on.

Hi Frank, that sounds like the pump motor may be jammed. sometimes things rust or corrode and eventually seize up.

Pull the pump and check it.

This sounds like the motor has seized up. You will most likely need to replace at least the motor and maybe the complete pump assembly.
You can take the pump into a local motor shop and see if they can rebuild the motor for you.

We just turned on pump, was on for about 30 seconds, hummed, did not come on and pump got hot. any suggestions

This sounds like a frozen (seized) machine. Is the impeller able to turn? If the impeller is locked, maybe you can release it. If not, you may need to haul the unit to an electric motor shop, for repair. Some more powerful motors use a start up system, some mechanical, some use condencers (sometimes called starters), and at that point, you want to be SURE what is needed, for safety.
Hope this helps.

sounds like jammed or bearing seized water could have seized bearing spray and lube bearings than try by hand [with a non marring pliers or if can grab impeller] and try to turn motor by hand to loosen motor-- when motor doesnt turn it heats up and will turn off till it cools down this is a safety u may get lucky and the motor will run if it hasnt shorted out a winding

I replaced the shaft seal today and the pump motor is getting hot and shutting off every 30 seconds or so. The motor is making a wineing sound and no pressure is comming up on the filter.

The motor is not turning, either due to a seized impeller or bearing. Check for free spinning of the motor and impeller by hand. If ok, then look for a bad starter capacitor or defective primary/secondary motor switch assembly
