There are so many models of what may appear like the same motor, but the internals may vary????
If you can take off the cover & look at the capacitor itself, that is your best bet. You need to at least be at the equivalent of the same range of MFD!!!! Example 72 - 93 MFD!
You can go slightly higher, but not by much!

sounds like a priming problem. look at the check valve in front of the pump in the suction line. sounds as if it is loosing its prime so you don't have enough water close enough to the pump to get it primed.

Sounds like a thermal prolem. Is the fan plate on the motor? Are all the vanes free of obstruction, especially under the wiring box, once found a dead mouse under one on a pump that where the thermal cut out is usually located.

This is a air leak on your suction side between the skimmer and the pump. You will not see water in the yard on the suction side usually, only the return. It is usually just the fittings around your pump or the seal around the pump lid, check those first and make sure you do not have a loose clamp or a damaged or dry seal. If that is not it then call in your local service guy to determine where the leak is. They will most likely pressurize your suction line to find the leak. Hope that helps.

The side with the 1 1/4 inch (about) indention encircling the shaft hole faces toward the basket. That is where the seal is set. The other side of the seal sets into the impeller with the white side showing outward.
