Most of the time it is the GFCI on the end of the plug that goes bad. If it were me I would cut off the GFCI and wire in a standard 120v plug. If it still doesn't work after that then there is a good chance that something electric internally has gone wrong which isn't going to be worth repairing.

Shallow water pump keeps stopping


new pump --not big enough for the job
old pump --motor windings problem, faulty start run capacitor
I suspect that as the motor is 1/2 hp if will run good when there is a need for water but under pressure the pressure switch is set to high so the motor overloads and gets hot

Was using the SteamVac and it just stopped doing


Bad news! The humming is the pump so it is still good, but that means either the ac to dc converter is bad or the motor went up. The good news, neither would be your fault.

Dishwasher starts to fill then just hums


Sounds like a motor problem. Behind the chopper is an access to the impeller, try turning the impeller or the chopper blade and see if the motor will rotate. If it doesn't, then something is stuck preventing the motor from running.
