Question about Pentair IntelliFlo VS-3050 & VS+SVRS Variable Speed Pump -
I would suspect your speed controller has failed, this is a very common problem, the output SCR's/Triac's often go Open Circuit, this then will cause the exact symptoms you describe. These fail usually because of "Dirty Power Supplied"
You will have to have this Unit attended to to replace the speed controller unit onboard.
It maybe possible to remove the speed controller and simply have that repaired, as an option I guess. However it usually pays to return the unit to the manufacturer or authorised agent, for repairs, it usually in my experience, it actually gets it done, gets done faster, and works out to be the least expensive option overall.
I have your manual below for your convenience.

THe manual is here:
IT does not have a lot to say about the issues. The thing that you need to do is get a meter and check the voltages that are present on the system. Also you need to make sure that none of the system is on a GFCI breaker. IT might be that the controller is on one and it has blown out and the motor is not.

I would suspect that the intellitouch controller might be faulty, since it controls the voltage to the motor. This is done, as I understand, through relays, so it could also very well be a faulty relay, or slightly oxidized contacts, things of that nature. Unfortunately, I couldn't run down a schematic of the system, or any very technical information, for that matter. I would refer to your literature, and contact their support center to see if they could assist you, or if there are any known issues, etc.
Wish I had more info, but this problem wasn't reported anywhere on the net, that I could find.
Good luck, hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa.
