Question about AO Smith Pool Pump Motor Hayward Swimming Pool Pump Full Rated Motor / Cen

Pool motor makes a buzzing sound but doesn't work

Hi,

I have a 2 HP AO smith motor on my pool filter and when I flip the timer switch on it makes a buzzing sound at the motor but does not come on. I checked power at the timer and have 118 volts on both sides. I have not checked power at the back of the pump as it is too difficult to get to. I'm assuming some power is getting there because of the buzzing sound. I also reached inside of the pump and spun the impeller to make sure the motor is not seized up. I bought the motor a few months ago from a rebuilding company so it's not very old. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim
