Question about Pentair 1.0 Hp Whisperflo Pump
Capacitors fail because the switch internal to the motor stays closed too long during a start up causing the capacitor to rupture. That same switch is responsible for starting the motor. Since you had a cap fail and now the motor won't start I'd say you need to look at replacing the switch or possibly the motor. A lot of this will depend on the age of the motor and what if anything else is wrong internally. Once you have a complete diagnosis you'll need to decide if it is worth repairing the motor/pump or if a new one is a better route.
