In the back of the motor you will find a start capacator. This will be a brown or black cilinder 1" around x 2" long. With the power off unhook the wires to it and note where they go, their will be two or three. You will need to go to a motor shop or a good pool store to get a new one. Then just plug it in and you should be good. If this dosen't help than you may have problems in the windings of the motor and will need to replace it.
The start cap supplys a boost of power to get the motor turning. Once it starts then the cintrifical switch kicks out and opens the points in the back of the motor. When it goes bad then the motor just hums and won't start turning. Be sure to replace with the same cap. The numbers you need will be printed on the side of the cap. Good luck.

Reset button for sta-rite well pump kicks off


Hi,
That could be a bad wire in the well or the pump motor has a flat spot...or a spot that if the motor stops there it will not start....also could be that the pump bearings are worn and the motor locks up once in a while...
Bottom line the pump will need to be pulled and probably replaced....

Loud buzzing sound began on start up


It could be several things but the most likely are: Something is spinning around with the motor shaft. Unplug the motor and "blast" water through the vent holes to clear debris. Let it dry completely before returning to service. Something could be caught in the impeller. Remove the front end and check. Squeals, loud hums, heat and vibration are indications of bad bearings.
